High-tech Teaching Tools

Digital products make Bible research a breeze.

by Mike Phillips

...This past December, the film version of the C. S. Lewis classic The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe opened in theaters around the world. Our church community put together an outreach package to help believers communicate the deeper truths of this story. We used several different programs to aid us in compiling the material and publishing it on our web page.

Logos Bible Software from Libronix was essential for searching out the themes of spiritual warfare, good vs. evil, and even references to lions. As we found a useful idea, we pasted it to the clipping area. In addition, I began using InterVarsity Press's Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture, which contained several pithy sections on spiritual warfare. Working with the Libronix database, the Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture library contains medieval and early church writings, which are as timeless and useful as any I have found.
