Does anyone know of any good books on Logos that contain Bible study questions?  I write study guides for my church and would love a good resource in my logos library that help get things started on these study guides.

Many of the Bible studies in Logos would have questions. I find the MacArthur Bible Studies particularly useful, see https://www.logos.com/product/2326/macarthur-bible-studies-romans, for example.

Outside Logos, there's a two volume work called Balancing the Sword that contains questions from every chapter in the Bible. See http://www.balancingthesword.com/books.asp

I have found David Jeremiah's studies very helpful. They have good questions. 

I have taught through:

and

https://www.logos.com/product/9881/god-i-need-some-answers-life-lessons-from-the-psalms 

Both were very good. You can buy them in a package:

Specifically designed to engender discussion in a small group setting, Josh Hunt's "Good Questions" series is outstanding... I've used his material for years.

Rick there is a inexpensive Study Bible called the "Serendipity Bible" that has several group questions for every section of the Bible. It's not in Logos unfortunately. In my opinion most of the questions are pretty lame, but ususally there's one or two for each section of Bible that are decent, which saves some prep time at least. See also this forum conversation.

I have a hard cover copy of the Serendipity Bible that I purchased several years ago that has discussion questions for the entire Old and New Testaments. It's an excellent springboard for putting together group Bible discussions.

I really wish this book was available in the Logos format -- I haven't seen anything more versatile the the Serendipity Bible for building group studies.

I have also used MacArthur's studies (some good reference material included, but often high level questions which may be okay depending upon the depth desired). and also Serendipity Bible (not much depth in the questions, but has at least addresses every periscope - sometimes some good starter questions as well).

An older set of studies called 'Lessonmaker' from another publisher had numerous sources of Bible Study question that were very useful. I don't know if it even still exists. It was available in hard copy as well. The base questions were pretty extensive at a detail level. Of the other resources, Navigators as a group produces some good studies, especially I like the Life Change book studies. I would love it if Logos pursued some of these resources.

Seldom do I use any of the studies as is, but glean from various ones for approach and that outstandingly worded question.

A bundle of the better studies (Navigators, etc.) would be a good seller for Logos.

I remember Lessonmaker as well.  I had a software version of it, but that was ages ago.

The Lifeguide Bible study series from Intervarsity Press would be another good investment for Logos.

LifeGuide Series is available from another bible software platform for a price Logos might find hard to match and formed the basis of their lesson maker program.

This is a big part of what I use Logos for. However, before I answer the question I need to know if you want questions that have one repeat back the content of the passage, questions that are concerned with the passage in context with other passages, theological or application questions. When I get back from an errand, I can post some hints on how I've found best to use Logos for this.

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

I am subscribed to Josh Hunt's material, and there are some good things there, but find it hard to search through it.  That's why I was hoping to find something on Logos.

MJ - I am mostly looking for questions that would engage the student in an expository study of the text for the purpose of applying the principles gained in the text to their lives. 

It sounds like the Serendipity Bible and the MacArthur series would be helpful.  I am curious on what specific resources you use in Logos. 

Thanks!

The Bible Speaks Today series has a study guide at the end of each book in the series.

These have some great questions.

Here is an example below

1 Read 1:6–8 (The apostles receive their commission, pp. 40–45)
a ‘Jesus’ two main topics of conversation between his resurrection and his ascension were the kingdom of God and the Spirit of God’ (p. 40). How are these two subjects related?
b What did the apostles understand by ‘kingdom of God’? Where had they gone wrong (pp. 41ff.)? In what ways is your thinking about the kingdom distorted by these same wrong ideas?
c What differences are there between power in God’s kingdom and power in human kingdoms (pp. 41f.)? How is this relevant for you?
d What are the ‘radical political and social implications’ of the kingdom of God for you (p. 42)?


Christ rules over ‘an international community in which race, nation, rank and sex are no barriers to fellowship’ (p. 43).


e About what must the apostles (and we as well!) ‘be willing to be left in ignorance’ (p. 44)? Why? What information does Jesus give instead?
f ‘Before the Spirit could come, the Son must go’ (p. 45). Why?
