Hello, I am looking to add some journals to my collection but could use some advice. My first question is: how useful are journals for sermon prep? My second is: does logos index them in such a way that they will show up in the passage guide when researching a particular pericope? Last question: what collection of journals would you recommend from logos?

thank you for all your help

  1. If you are seeking the most up to date information, journals are essential.
  2. Yes, and they also populate in the Sermon Starter Guide.
  3. One of Theological Journal Bundles will be your best value in my view. Here's a link https://www.logos.com/search?query=theological%20journals%20bundle&sortBy=Relevance&limit=30&page=1&ownership=all   

Meanwhile, Jesus kept on growing wiser and more mature, and in favor with God and his fellow man.

Good info.  What journal bundle would one look into for exegetical and/or linguistic papers (JETS?).  

Having written a few journal papers myself years ago—I can tell you they are highly critiqued in colleague review (and very nerve racking).

As you said, journals are for the most up to date info.

I think the best journal for these topics is JBL (the Journal of Biblical Literature). It is found in the Master Journal Bundle

Much appreciated!  But—Wowsie!, are these things expensive!  Used to have a JETS membership.  Again, journals are the way to go for serious scholarship IMO.
