Top Highlights

“Restored gate at the site of the ancient city of Nineveh of Assyria.” (Page 1193)

“Throughout the Scriptures faith is the trustful human response to God’s self-revelation via His words and His actions.” (Page 547)

“State of delight and well being that results from knowing and serving God.” (Page 956)

“Expiation speaks of the process by which sins are nullified or covered. Propitiation, taking a personal object, speaks of the appeasement of an offended party—specifically the Christian God—from wrath or anger.” (Page 533)

“ANTINOMIANISM (Ăn tĭ nōʹ mĭ ăn ĭsm) False teaching that since faith alone is necessary for salvation, one is free from the moral obligations of the law. The word ‘antinomianism’ is not used in the Bible, but the idea is spoken of. Paul appears to have been accused of being an antinomian (Rom. 3:8; 6:1, 15). While it is true that obedience to the law will never earn salvation for anyone (Eph. 2:8–9), it is equally true that those who are saved are expected to live a life full of good works (Matt. 7:16–20; Eph. 2:10; Col. 1:10; James 2:14–26). Since we have been freed from the dominion of sin through faith in Jesus, we have also been freed to practice the righteousness demanded by God (Rom. 6:12–22).” (Page 75)

    Trying again... This resource is different than Holman Bible Dictionary found online on Study Light's and other websites. (Compare the entry for "compassion") The online version is much more extensive than the Logos version. I don't see any other Holman Bible Dictionary in the Logos catalog. What am I missing? Is there a Logos version that is comparable to the more extensive online versions?

    It's ok. Generally the graphics are good, but sometimes too small to read. For a brief overview of a certain thing it's good. I also have Easton's Bible Dictionary and they are pretty much the same except for the graphics in the Holman dictionary
