We've filmed about 200 Mobile Ed courses from close to 100 different speakers. We're going to keep filming courses, and we want to get your feedback on who you'd like to see teach future Mobile Ed courses.

  • Who are some biblical scholars, theologians, or teachers you would like to see teach a Mobile Ed course?
  • Are there are any current Mobile Ed speakers who you would like to see more courses from?
  • What topics would you like to see covered in future courses?

Daniel Akin teaching Hermeneutics.
New Testament by Ed Gravely
Greek 1,2, etc by David Alan Black.
Old Testament by Robert L. Cole.
Nathan Finn - Baptist History (or any church history topic - Note his CV doesn't reflect his current Chair)
Ethics by Mark Leiderbach.

All of the above (except Finn) are/were professors at SEBTS, Finn is the theology chair at Union.

I have a few more i could add to the list, but these are the professors who've made the biggest impacts on me. In 15 years of formal post highschool education - the list of professors that made me love more dearly both my Lord and the subject is relatively small - but these six are definitely at the top. 

Akin is certainly at or near the top of my list. I've studied hermeneutics before, and other under excellent teachers. However there is something about his way of teaching that left an indelible mark upon me, drew me closer to the Lord and increased my love of God's word.

You might also consider Dr. William Roach to teach a class on Carl F.H. Henry, or CSBI, or inerrancy in general. He co-authored a book on the latter with Norm Geisler (and J.I Packer), and recently authored a book on the inerrancy debate. His doctoral dissertation was on Carl F.H. Henry and his epistemology IIRC.

Roach's books (would be good to pull into Logos btw)

Miles Custis:
What topics would you like to see covered in future courses?

I would love to see courses that explore the writings of certain individuals like

  • The Theology of John Calvin
  • The Theology of Karl Barth
  • The Theology of Jonathan Edwards
  • (and since its on Pre-Pub) The Theology of T F Torrance (as a UK theologian)

Of course I cannot afford to buy their works AND but buy the Mobile Ed at current prices so it would be great to see some course discount offered for the course since their works are essential for the course.

Packaging certain Mobile Ed courses with specific texts used with the course definitely has potential.

Randall Buth or your very own John Schwandt to teach biblical Greek as a living language.

Randall Buth for living biblical Hebrew.

Might want to also consider Dr. T. Michael W. Halcomb of the Conversational Koine Institute. I think the time is right for Logos to do something truly revolutionary with the teaching of Greek and Hebrew. With someone like John Schwandt on your staff it would be an waste to miss this opportunity.

Leland Ryken (Wheaton) on Reading the Bible as Literature

Alan Jacobs (Baylor) on just about anything (though C.S. Lewis might be a good start)

Someone (maybe Dr. Jarvis Williams - SBTS) on racial reconciliation and/or a history of race in American Christianity

Dr. John Hannah (DTS) on some aspect of Church History (history of Charismatic movements)

Daniel Wallace (DTS), C. Samuel Storms, Douglas Kelly (RTS)

I'll second many of the others, particularly Dr. Akin and Dr. Trueman

Fr. Aidan Nichols, OP, PhD, on Catholic systematic and dogmatic theology.

John Martignoni on apologetics and the Bible in the Catholic Church.

A+. This is my favorite list ever. I would double-up my votes on Dr. Edward Feser, Dr. Scott Hahn, Fr. Aiden Nichols, Dr. Matthew Levering, Fr. Thomas Joseph White. I might add Fr. Erasmo Leiva-Merikakis, OCSO, for spiritual formation, and Fr. Donald P. Senior, CP, for biblical interpretation, but good luck pulling them out of their respective Trappist monastery and all of the things Fr. Donald Senior is up to. Maybe Dr. Francis J. Moloney, too, to teach specific book studies from the New Testament.

This will sound very "crass" - however!

Can we prioritise any scholars by age. Those of a more mature age often have much insight and knowledge to share - and the clocks are counting.

i.e. get them while you can.

As I sounds bad - but there it is.

Shalom
