For those not familiar, BiblicalTraining.org is a fantastic resource for free Bible classes by world-class Bible instructors. I just received an email update from them stating that they have partnered with a Bible software company (to remain unnamed) to include all of their free classes embedded in this software. It got me thinking: it would be great if Faithlife would also partner with them to include their classes in Logos!

Perhaps, this isn't feasible. One reason is because there likely wouldn't be any financial gain from Logos since BiblicalTraining's mission has always been offering free classes. This alone might be reason enough for Faithlife not to pursue this. Another reason is that BiblicalTraining might be seen as a competitor to Mobile Education (although I think this doesn't need to be the case).

I just thought I would post this as a suggestion to see what other users think and maybe solicit a response from a Faithlife employee. If this partnership could happen, I know many people would greatly benefit!

I also received the email, and I agree with you. It would be great.

I would also like to add my support to this suggestion! I have enjoyed BiblicalTraining immensely over the years. It would be a great blessing to have this tied into Logos.

May the Lord bless you and keep you.

They are a great resource, as is most of the Seminary material supplied through iTunes. It is one reason I do not plan on spending the money on the media resources offered through Logos, unless there is a drastic price decrease- sorry- my opinion, and not shy about it.

I see the the unnamed Bible Software has a Starter Package that is not too expensive ($50). It might be an option to buy this package just for the BibilcalTraining access.

I also agree.  I upgraded my version of the other software just to try it out.  Logos could do it better!
