Dr. Douglas Moo teaches New Testament at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois. For over 20 years, his ministry was based at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois. His academic interests revolve around the interface of exegesis and theology. Dr. Moo seeks to model to students a rigorous approach to the Greek text that always asks the “so what” questions of ultimate significance and application. The Pauline and general epistles have been his special focus within the NT canon.

In the next few years, he will be writing commentaries on Galatians and Hebrews, a Pauline theology, and a theological and practical book on creation care.

Dr. Moo has also been active in his local church, serving as elder most years, teaching and preaching to the church, and conducting home Bible studies. Because of his New Testament expertise, he has served on the Committee on Bible Translation—the group of scholars charged with revising the text of the NIV and with producing the TNIV.

    This course is thoroughly set out and neutral in approach to who the recipients are, Jewish and / or Gentile. It is set out in clearly understandable terms accessible to both experienced and inexperienced users. The information presented can be obtained through self-study but will take a long time to be so clear. Thank you Faithlife for the option to add this course additionally to the Diamond Library. Much of the information in the course is already part of my thinking but just as much has been expanded, renewed and even added.

    This course surveys Paul’s letter to the Romans, tracing major theological themes. I found it helpful to trace Paul’s flow of thought as he presents his arguments in Romans. Dr. Moo is a top-notch scholar who covers essential historical and theological backgrounds with an emphasis on engaging and examining traditional interpretations and newer ideas introduced by the “New Perspective on Paul.” This course has really helped me to grasp the fundamental concepts in book of Romans.

    If you find yourself struggling at general Bible study in Logos due to a lack of focus, the Mobile Ed courses really reign in your ability to follow the mixture of academic teaching and Logos training mixed into the course. Its a brilliant feat Logos has accomplished. Dr. Moo sounds just like he reads; very knowledgable and careful in observing the Biblical text while bringing large ideas and themes into focus. I highly recommend this course!

    I just finished half of the course and it is excellent! Course layout: Logos designs the course with multiple short video sessions rather than a long presentation. It is much easier for learners to pick up the key teachings. Also, concise notes are displayed next to the speaker during the presentation. It is a clever way to teach. I do not have any concentration lapse while going through the course up to Unit 3. The only drawback is on the technical side. It looks to me the network bandwidth for this service is not adequate. Dr Moo's presentation: I would say just to watch the videos of Unit 3 of this course is already worth of the total cost. Dr Moo firmly teaches justification from a clear biblical perspective. Maybe my intelligent is below average. I have read NICNT Romans 10 times and BECNT Galatians 4 times and still cannot get such a clear understanding on this doctrine. Also, Dr Moo is not only a scholar in NT but a brother in Christ with a gentle heart. I learned this during watching Unit 3. Even New Perspective's teaching on justification is obviously wrong but Dr Moo did not condemn it. I think I have seen a lively example of the following verse in this video: "A crushed reed he will not break, a dim wick he will not extinguish" NIV Isa 42:3

    I purchased the NT331 Paul’s Letter to the Romans Mobile Education a couple of weeks ago. I earlier purchased the Wisdom of John Mobile Ed for $41 on Community Pricing, but purchased this one while waiting for the other one to be completed. After watching the Mobile Ed Webinar, I can understand the reason for the high cost: bringing the speaker to Washington state for a week of filming and then transcribing the speaker’s narrative, as well as inserting links to the Logos Library. I had a problem with the quality of the video on my 4 ½ year old PC, but there was no problem on my iPad or iMac. The problem may not be there with a newer and faster PC. The suggestion for having a Platinum Logos Library was not an issue for me since that is already what I had. At the end of each transcription there are required readings and suggested readings. At the left of the title is the icon of an open book if you have that resource and a closed padlock if that resource is not a part of your library. I was surprised to find a locked resource in my required reading since I have Platinum plus 700 additional books. If the reading is locked, you can click on it and a window opens previewing the book and giving you the opportunity to purchase it. The Platinum collection is not required as far as I am concerned. You have the option to purchase any of the books individually. The readings went along well with the lesson (called Segments) and provided additional insight. I found the TDNTA reading to be the most challenging since I am a retired engineer and have not studied Greek other than in Logos. So far, I have taken one of the tests. It was fifteen multiple choice and true/false questions. I enjoy the segments which contain Logos Bible Software screen captures and a speaker covering a topic in Dr. Moo’s lesson. An example is finding the common Greek root for righteousness and justify. I do agree that the cost is an issue and do not care that some of the topics can only be purchased in a bundle which means you pay even more and must purchase items you do not need or even want. I also purchased the OT101 this week and that will probably be it for me.

    I agree with the comments concerning the costs. I was actually excited about the Mobile Education options but after reading the information it appears to be nothing more than a ploy to get users to upgrade to their platinum edition. I bought the bronze edition and seems like I've paid for a lot of resources I never use. To upgrade to platinum it would cost another $1300 plus the cost of Mobile Education. I believe Olive Tree has just as good research system and you have the option to add to your library individually. Olive Tree is the way to go for me. Sorry Logos!

    And as opposed to watching the essential same lectures for FREE at you tube and another internet site....Gee, all you have to have is the platinum edition........Gosh you mean that measly $2,149.00 edition....WOW, what a bargain. I guess if you can afford that, this course would be peanuts....Here's another classic example of people who live in a world all their own...If your rich, if you have money to burn, then Logos is great...If not, Logos, other than the basic levels, isn't typically in the average person's realm.......
