The Herald: Goodbye bulky books, hello new Bible software
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., October 12, 2012 — Linda Haveman, dean of academics and assessment at Cornerstone University’s PGS program, believes that Logos Bible Software will equip students with just the resources they need. “Instead of having tons of concordances on your bookshelf, you can have them all electronically,” Haveman said. “You’ll have the resources at your fingertips.”PGS will now be offering Logos Leader’s Library Package as part of its Bachelor of Science in Ministry Leadership program.
With cross references, exegetical guides, reading plans, translations and a vocabulary database. Haveman said that Logos is a wonderful resource for students in the field of ministry. The B.S. program, which was specially designed for church ministry and non-profit work, will be incorporating Logos into the required course Personal Growth for Effective Leadership. The program is a lock-step program that accelerates students from one course to the next.
After taking the Personal Growth for Effective Leadership course, students will have the Logos software as theirs to keep. Haveman said the software provides students with real-life application, whether it is a sermon preparation or leadership training. “We want students that are working today to take home and apply directly to their current employment tomorrow,” she said. Logos Leader’s Library offers 346 resources at the click of a mouse. With a print value of $5,000, the Logos software automatically updates and syncs with any mobile app on the go.
