Overview

Dr. Darrell Bock, one of the world’s foremost biblical scholars, has distilled his decades of research and teaching experience into this single course on how to study the Bible with Logos. This is the ideal companion to your Logos base package.

Dr. Bock begins by teaching you how to read Scripture in four basic steps. Then he teaches you how to study Scripture by understanding the original context and genre it was written in. He describes the social, literary, and historical elements of context; following that, he covers genres, like narrative and biography, and subgenres, like those in the Psalms.

Dr. Bock’s teaching is paired with nearly a dozen Logos training videos. You will learn how to use the new features in Logos as you explore the life of the Apostle Peter, uncover the literary context of Ruth, find all of the Davidic Psalms about God’s faithfulness, and more. If you want to study the Bible on a deeper level using Logos, and you need a place to start, this course was designed for you.
