Here’s the rub – it lasts until 31 December. Go. Get. It. Now.
I’ve happened upon this book, quite by accident, thanks to the newly redesigned iPad app for Logos. It is included in the daily devotional section. I have made a habit of reading it, almost daily, for the past few weeks.
It is…deeply theological and not altogether different than what the current Pope is saying.
Cardinal Ratzinger offers selected passages from his profound spiritual and theological writings as meditations for each day of the year. He picked the title of this book from verse 8 in the third letter of St. John, which he also adapted for his coat of arms: “Co-Workers of the Truth.” Just as these words signify for St. John the participation of all the faithful in the service of the Gospel, which includes the faithful extending hospitality to all who come as messengers of faith, so too Ratzinger shows the importance of our uniting charity with truth to make possible the proclamation of the Gospel. Through his meditations here, he hopes to help awaken in each reader the courage and generosity to become coworkers with the Gospel, which is the truth of Jesus Christ.

Looks like @logos has updated Ephesians in their Lexham Bible Guides for Paul’s letters:
Now we’ve enhanced the guide with more than 30% new content, including more analysis, more annotated links for each of the issues discussed, and several new Issues and Background Studies. We’ve also added discussions of nine additional commentaries, including new links to 18 different journal and dictionary articles. This added content will help you study Ephesians’ key interpretive issues while connecting you with the depth and breadth of your Logos library.

I did a vlog review for this:
Worship in the Early Church is a four-volume collection of excerpts from early Christian writings illustrating the Church’s liturgical practice in both East and West, from its Jewish beginnings through the end of the sixth century. Source material includes doctrinal and historical treatises, scriptural commentaries, sermons, letters, synodal legislation, early church orders, monastic rules, and baptismal and funeral epigrams. Each author or major selection is preceded by a short introduction containing such information as dates, country of origin, and various other background details. A bibliography of pertinent periodical and liturgical literature is given, as well as a bibliography referencing standard encyclopedias of religion and manuals of patrology.

First – you can get this entire set, hardcopy, from amazon for $270.00 or from Logos for 199.00, if not less with your academic discount.
Second, I’ll follow up with screenshots and reviews, but honestly, even a quick scan, these are awesome.
There is a lot that goes into preparing a sermon. You have to dig through layers of interpretation all the while attempting to evade your own inclinations and presuppositions. Logos appears to understand this age-old dilemma and is devoting much of its attention to simplifying the steps that a pastor takes to create a sermon and presentation, thereby saving time. So does this resource ultimately help a pastor out? Does it save the pastor time in research (or, maybe more importantly, is it worth the $93 asking price for all 1,500 Quotations)? The short answer is, yes.

Read what else he says…
I haven’t broached it yet — thought I might.
Here is the first image. More later.
You can find the item here.
Note, this resource was not provided by Logos for a review. Given my recent use of it and current geopolitical issues, I felt like highlighting this was something useful.
The description is here.
10 minutes is just not enough time, I tell you, just not enough time!
Some of the key points I tried to stress is that I found the LBGs suitable for the mid-level entry into biblical scholarship. Let’s be honest for a moment. Often times, we expect too much from annotated bibliographies. I think we often expect them to hand us the information on a silver platter. Stop that. It isn’t going to happen. On the off chance you do see it happening, you will be a bit worse for wear in the end. If you are looking for a one-stop shop on all things related to Pauline literature, you will be disappointed.
On the other hand, if you want to know how effective the Logos Bible Software is this is one of the most dynamic ways of finding out. The resources used are those available in the Logos library of resources. Some of these might in your library but all of them could be. Some may see this as a gigantic marketing ploy, but I beg to differ. This is more than a sophisticated search, but the authors have gone through and highlighted what you need from those sources. Logos also offers limited previews so for those you don’t have, you might find out why you need them.
Another point I wanted to make is that with the community notes feature, the research doesn’t have to stop there. The vibrant and sometimes argumentative (think, iron sharpens iron) Logos community can help to build these resources and really drive the potential.
I also like the key word studies and the slides accompanying the resource.
All in all, the dynamis of this resource is potentially huge.
Thought I’d share. This is a picture of various concurrent, but with different perimeters, searches I am performing in Logos at the moment. It is not just one search feature, but several, as many as you could want I guess. I have search a book, a few books, or my entire library… move on, hold my place, and search again someplace else.
We recently announced that the Logos forums passed both the 100,000-user and the 500,000-comment thresholds. That’s a big deal—those numbers represent the worldwide community that’s sprung up around the importance of Bible study and the value of Logos Bible Software. Since then, we’ve been thinking of a unique way to celebrate.
Go my minions… go here and find out what and how.
