My Personal Opinion On This Passage Is…

I got an email a while ago asking for help promoting a crowd-sourced study Bible called everyword. Maybe my mention of it here will count as promoting it, but that’s not my intention; rather I want to challenge the concept while exploring the worldview that seems partly to be motivating it. (Here’s a PDF of the Kickstarter page in case the link goes dead someday.) everyword The project description includes, By crowdsourcing Biblical commentary, everyword seeks to bring people of…

Bible Contradiction Resolved, via the Commentary on the NT Use of the OT (Logos)

Bible Contradiction Resolved, via the Commentary on the NT Use of the OT (Logos)

I’ve entered into a cooperative agreement with Logos Bible software recently, as you might have surmised if you saw my recent giveaway blog post. Logos has offered me review copies of some of their products, one of which is Beale and Carson’s Commentary on the New Testament Use of the Old Testament. Unlike other books I’ve reviewed, I can’t speak to this one’s overall effect. It’s a reference work, after all. The great thing is to have it integrated with…

This review is based on downloaded review copies of the software provided by each company. LogosIf you’re running on Windows…

The Electronic Student: Presenting Your Study

The Electronic Student: Presenting Your Study

Serious Scripture study is often sermon preparation, or preparation for some other kind of presentation. Does Bible software have anything to offer as an aid to presentation? The answer is yes. I’ve been studying Ephesians, using both Accordance and Logos Bible software for comparison purposes. I opened Accordance’s PhotoGuide, and I was, honestly, stunned to see thirty-six full-resolution photos with more than 1500 words of descriptive commentary on the city and its culture in New Testament days, all tied to…

The Electronic Student and Bible Study: Focus

The Electronic Student and Bible Study: Focus

Why study the Bible on computer? I’ve written previously about significant negatives associated with electronic study, especially Bible study. I don’t find it especially conducive to prayer and worship; it doesn’t draw me quickly into a sense of fellowship with God. Now I’m about to turn around and explain why that’s not so true after all. Here’s the short version: deep study is a matter of focusing, expanding, meditating, and ultimately applying and/or presenting, and all of them are entirely…
