Hi all,

As some of you know, we recently reached the 1 million-post mark in the forums, and we're now past 250,000 users. Last time we celebrated a milestone (500,000 posts), we had 100,000 fewer users. 

Which means it's a good time to poll the community anew: What are your favorite, go-to, most-used resources in Logos? (A similar post appeared about 6 years ago.)

I'll start: I love the sermon illustration collections, and how accessible they are in the Sermon Starter Guide. I especially appreciate these resources:

5,000 Quotations, Prayers, and Illustrations for Preachers (11 vols.)

- Encyclopedia of 7700 Illustrations

10,000 Sermon Illustrations

What about you?

Judging by the new "Most Used" column in the Library which I only stumbled upon yesterday:

TNIV - for my own reading/study

NRSV - for preparing worship services for church, looking at reverse interlinear

ESV - another one I use for searching, looking at reverse interlinear

Anchor Yale Bible Dictionary (AYBD)

The Message - for alternate translation

KJV - for familiar/memorized/famous verses

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (ISBE)

Revised Common Lectionary

Anchor Yale Bible Dictionary (AYBD) --Still my go to dictionary.

New Interpreter's Bible (NIB) --My start out / go to commentary. 

New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) --Preferred Bible for reading.

New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) --Preferred Bible for study particularly thanks to original language tie in.

Book of Common Prayer (1979) Daily Office Lectionary  (BCP:DL) --Texts for personal devotions.

Revised Common Lectionary (RCL) --My Sunday readings.

Eerdmans Commentary on the Bible  (ECB) -- My favourite one volume commentary.

Hear the Ancient Wisdom by Charles Richard Ringma  -- A devotional I am going through this year that I am particularly enjoying and heartily recommend.

Feasting on the Word (12 vols.) (FOW) --  This rather unique series looks at sections used in the lectionary and provides four separate commentary essay on each selection (one each on from a theological, pastoral, exegetical, and homiletical approach). In a same vein is Feasting on the Gospels giving you a complete look at the entire gospel with the same four fold approach. 

While there are numerous resources I could mention I will leave it at these 9.

My ESV Bible, of course.

My new favourite commentary set is the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary.

For Greek/Hebrew its BDAG/HALOT.

Bible Dictionary has to be Anchor Yale.

And I'm a huge fan of the Dictionary of Bible Themes.

Looking at my "Default Work" layout that I open for most general tasks, these are ones I use most (beside Bibles):

  • Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, Thesaurus--can't write well without them
  • Dictionary of Bible Themes--Like Mark, I'm a huge fan of this one for most any task.
  • Treasury of Scripture Knowledge--Used in tandem with the above to find cross references (I don't have the new edition)
  • Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church--huge reference work that covers practically everything
  • AYBD, LBD (yes!), and the IVP Bible Dictionaries of the OT & NT are my favorite Bible dictionaries, though I also use many others frequently.
  • Louis Berkhof's Systematic Theology--accessible and one of the most comprehensive for its size, it's really great when I need to look up something theological fast.

Matthew Boffey:
What are your favorite, go-to, most-used resources in Logos?

This is what My Library shows as my "most used" resources:

  • NIV
  • ESV
  • Greek NT Interlinear (4th ed, DB, 1993)
  • BDAG
  • Lexham Heb-Eng Interlinear
  • DBL (Swanson)
  • Commentaries on Matthew by France (NICOT), Keener (S/R), Wilkins (NIVAC)
  • EDNT
  • Lexham Gk-Eng Interlinear LXCX
  • Evangelical Theol (Michael Bird)
  • EErdmans Dictionary of Early Judaism (J  J Collins)
  • Mission of God's People (Chris Wright)

It's probably obvious I've been studying and blogging Matthew recently.

Hate to admit it, but the same books that got the most wear on a physical shelf get the most wear in Logos:

  • NRSV
  • NABRE
  • NJB (although I'd much prefer the JB which I have to use in paper)
  • NEB
  • Lectionary/Ordo
  • Missal
  • Catechism of the Catholic Church
  • Ott Fundamentals of Catholic Dogma
  • Jurgen The Faith of the Early Fathers
  • Denzinger: Sources of Catholic Dogma
  • Rosa: Fulfilled in Christ (Logos only - I don't have it in paper)
  • Sacra Pagina / Olem Berit
  • The Church Fathers and church documents referenced by the above resources (this is where Logos radically changed how I study).

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
