Guest Post for WORDsearch Blog

I recently sent in a guest post for WORDsearch Bible Software’s blog. Here it is on WORDsearch’s website.  I thought I would also post the text of it here just in case readers here wished to read it. One of my favorite WORDsearch resources (besides John G. Butler books of course!) is the Adrian Rogers Legacy Collection. This goldmine of sermons and illustrations from over the years of Dr. Adrian Rogers’ ministry is a must have for any pastor wishing to draw from one of the finest collections of sermons in digital format today. However, the Adrian Rogers Legacy Collection is useful in other areas than just sermon preparation for pastors. As a seminary student, I frequently need to write seminary papers, exegetical papers, or engage in discussion groups where I am asked to explain or exegete a passage of Scripture. While I certainly turn to all the “usual” academic resources when writing my school papers and discussions (such as academic-level dictionaries, exegetical commentaries, theological journals, etc.), I have found that also turning to the Adrian Rogers Legacy Collection gives me a wealth of exposition on a passage of Scripture, as well as some excellent quotes or illustrations to include in my papers and discussions to give them the extra […]


Personal Books Restored and Updated 4

This entry is part 1 of 12 in the series Personal Books

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 don’t want a watch that connects to my phone. I want a watch that replaces my phone. So far I have only seen one on the market that fits that bill, the Neptune Pine. Supposedly it’s shipping in January, but it still looks too big to me. But, of course, I wouldn’t mind testing a live unit. What do I want to do with it? Everything I do with my cell phone, except drop it, lose it, and juggle it. So what should a watch that is everything do? GPS and the matching software to record my runs, as well as give me directions. Cellular Signal I don’t care if it prefers AT&T or Sprint or whomever, as long as I get signal. Bluetooth: Because I’m sure not going to talk to my wrist like Dick Tracy, at least not very often. Give me a very small bluetooth ear device and I’m good. Speakerphone?  Well maybe. It could have a speakerphone built in for those times when I need it.  But most of the time wouldn’t the bluetooth earpiece be […]
