Logos is pleased to offer the CrossTV/Word Pictures video series A Workman Approved By God as our newest addition to the Logos video library. This 16-part series is accessible for study and reference. The video book series utilizes the same tagging techniques featured in our electronic book collections, so it fits seamlessly into your existing library, adding a new tool in your study of Hermeneutics and biblical interpretation.
How can you determine whether someone is correctly interpreting God’s Word? In a day and age when there are over 1000 Christian Denominations, and literally thousands of cults, (and everybody seems to have a different interpretation of scripture), that’s not an insignificant question. So how do you know? In a word: Hermeneutics. Which is just a fancy word for the science of biblical interpretation. And as Hank Hannegraaff, President of C.R.E. (a group dedicated to challenging cultic and heretical teaching) put it: “The best antidote to heretical teaching is a good hermeneutical training.”

Personal Video Book FAQ
Q: Can I skip forward and backward in the video presentations?
A: Yes, you can navigate by clicking in the table of contents (which keeps current with where you are in the video), by entering a time in the active index window, or by pulling the slider bar. Play, pause, and stop buttons are also available. See screenshot at right.
Q: Can I project these videos on a screen or TV for my Sunday school class?
A: No. Personal Video Books are digitized at a size (approximately 312 x 240 pixels) and resolution that looks great on your monitor (see the demo) but is not suitable for public viewing. They are intended for personal use, as an aid to your biblical studies. To increase the size of the video to full screen, double-click it during playback. Be aware that the videos were designed for playback at approximately 312 x 240 pixels, so the resolution quality will be diminished in full screen mode.

About Word Pictures
From CrossTV/Word Pictures:
People are tired of a mock, pseudo, superficial Christianity. They’re realizing that despite all the hype and emotion up front, in the final analysis, much of modern Christianity is nothing more than a “form of Godliness, without the power.” (2 Timothy 3:5) Yet, there is a new, God-sent thirst and hunger amongst a relatively small (but rapidly growing) remnant of people, to experience, know, love, obey, suffer for, and serve the one, true, living God with all their hearts, souls, minds, and strength.
And those same people want a true, straight talking, plain speaking, “don’t tell me what you think I want to hear; tell me what I need to hear,” biblically accurate interpretation and exposition of God’s Word. They want to know what God wants us to know, the way he wants us to know it.
And people have grown weary of being hit up for money, or given “fluff” in place of doctrine, or having their intelligence insulted or placated in the name of Christianity. The result has been a genuine longing for the preaching and teaching that the Spurgeons and Wesleys and Edwardses of yesteryear were renowned for.
“Word Pictures” is one ministry’s God-fearing attempt to be faithful to that call.
