A Better Bible Study Is At Your Fingertips
Want to really study the Bible but you don’t know where to start? Imagine having an assistant who could help you research. Once you tell this person which passage you’re studying, he could leap into action, searching every book in your library, looking up relevant background information, opening books to the right page, suggesting additional resources, even creating customized parallel Bibles and word study guides. Now, that would be meaningful study!
The good news is that your desktop computer, combined with new software, can provide great assistance in improving the quality of your Bible study. Logos Bible Software Series X, Bible Study Library, from Logos Research Systems, includes a library of more than 115 titles, including 15 Bible versions, four Bible dictionaries, 10 commentaries, a concordance, resources for word study, and devotionals.
A passage guide feature makes it easy to find the information you need. Want to study the Sermon on the Mount? Simply open the software to the home page, type "Sermon on the Mount" in the search box, and click "Go!" Your favorite Bible version opens to the verse while the passage guide generates a list of commentaries, cross-references, Bible dictionary topics, even Bible maps and church music related to your passage. Every title listed is a direct link to what you’re looking for.
Other features include a customizable Bible reading plan, a prayer list manager, and note-taking functions. Additional tools automate word study and Bible version comparison. The new Holman Christian Standard Bible and more than 4,000 other titles can be added into the digital library at a minimal cost.
