I would love to hear from anyone who is willing to share. Apart from commentaries what are your one or two "must have resources" that have helped make your personal study/development or ministry (sermon or bible study preparation) more fruitful? Or what resource have you just enjoyed the most using on Logos?

Thanks,

Bryan

I assume you mean other than Bibles - original language or otherwise.

I would say the BDAG lexicon is my most valuable resource after the NA27 Greek text.

Aside from bibles (BHS and NA), I would have two—BDAG and HALOT or BDB.

The feature that drove me to Logos in the first place was Notes. Until now, every time I wore out a Bible, it took years to get the new one marked up.

What has helped the most is the Visual Filters one can create in Logos.

Of course there are a number of resources I would mention, but outside of commentaries the Anchor Dictionary and BDAG come immediately to mind.  Though I suppose if there was just one resource it would be the tagged Louw-Nida numbers/hyperlinked context-sensitive word meanings.  A gem especially for those who cannot read Greek.

commentaries are my must have. I can never get enough of them. I love to compare resources!

  • 1992 Good News Translation marked as 1st top Bible. While I use the "read aloud" feature for commentaries (Hermeneia; 2 Cor 1-7 ICC by Thrall; Prv Believer's Church Bible Commentary; The Genre, Composition and Hermeneutics of the Epistle of James by Luke Leuk Cheung) I follow along from it. The fact that the Good News Translation can be comprehended more quickly than any other version (and it's one of the very few versions based on modern linguistics, actually the only one that is at the same time dynamic equivalent/easy-to-read) makes a HUGE difference in focus so that I can maximally comprehend the "read aloud".
  • Here is a thread relevant to that, comparing OT versions, I invite You all to participate in it: http://www.christianforums.com/t7653202/
  • A Contemporary Anabaptist Theology by Finger. Cheap and up-to-date for a large area of theology.
  • Primitive Christianity by Gerd Lüdemann

Thanks,

These are good suggestions. I was wondering what to add next to my  library.  I have  already added a bunch of commentaries, which can get expensive quick, so wanted to look into other books/resources that  would help me.

One of my favourites is clicking on a word and my Nelson's New Illustrated Bible Dictionary (a terrific dictionary by the way!) pops us. I just used it again this morning to find out what a "palanquin" was...  Yes Cool

Making Bible study more fruitful? If we are talking NT study, the best resource I use (not a commentary) is the Lexham Discourse Greek New Testament. https://www.logos.com/product/3888/lexham-discourse-greek-new-testament-bundle If your Greek is rusty or you don't use Greek, the save some money and get the ESV High Definition New Testament... It is part of the bundle, and it is surprisingly useful. This is simply a bible study tool to help you see "markers" that the author uses to emphasize cparts of the Biblical text, for instance. It's a great way to start your reading of the Biblical text you are studying.
