A few years ago I ran into Professor Grant Horner’s 10 Chapter a day reading system. It was beautiful but in my mind a bit too much. I tried it several times and it always felt a bit too artificial to keep breaking on chapter boundaries in the middle of a story. (More on that at a later date perhaps.) I kept getting frustrated and eventually broke off the reading plan and just did it my way. As a result I developed my own Bible reading plan very similar to Prof Horner’s. I call it the Bible Backbone plan. It is a plan that works quite well for me, perhaps because it’s just a little smaller in size, and a thus a bit more flexible for my brain to work with. I’ve broken the scriptures down into six areas which I felt should be read every day. List 1: The Historical Backbone of Scripture tells the main story of the Bible from beginning to end.

So many users have contributed personal books of nearly every variety for Logos Bible Software. Below is the master tree that will take you to all of them. Take note that there are different file types for differing versions of Logos. Logos 3 takes the *.lbxoeb format for personal books. Logos 4 and up take the *.docx format. I will endeavor over time to get each author their own page, but for now you should be able to access everything right here. Enjoy browsing.

When I start up my Logos (Verbum) I have some of my devotional works placed in the menu bar, below I have my Daily Lectionary highlighted. Simply clicking on it gives me the readings listed and ready to be read. The readings are not only listed but are fully printed out in my default translation for quick and easy reading. After my reading I decide which one I wish to focus on that day for my daily devotional study.Then I start the passage guide and read the passage in a couple other translation (often all five of my default translations that Logos automatically opens). I then expand my commentaries section, and move the commentaries to overlapping scripture windows for more space. I leave the info window open in case I want to look something up. Logos allows one to automatically place foot notes in Word and some other word-processors. One little trick I use since my devotional journal […]
