Would you take a minute to tell me about yourself?
My name is Matt, and I oversee the Faithlife blog. I’ve designed a short survey to get a better feel for who you are and what you enjoy reading, and I’ll use the results to make this blog more relevant to you.
Would you take a brief moment to answer some questions? All questions are optional, so you can skip any if you are in a rush.
Thanks for your time,
If the survey appears odd below, take the survey in a better view.
The C.S. Lewis week is winding down, but you still have a few hours to get his collection in Logos for 30% off.
Here are three reasons why you should (besides the fact that he’s one of the most influential Christian writers and apologists of all time and his books are incredible).
The only other time we’ve offered this discount is when the collection was available for pre-order, three years ago. It’s one of those products we can rarely put on sale, so this may be your last opportunity to get it for less than list price.
As always, collections in Logos are the best way to get a lot of books for the best price. And with this sale, there are actually three layers of savings:
So by getting this bundle on sale, you’re getting what would be a $600 stack of books for less than half that—and you’re getting them in the most useful format.
In Logos, books are transformed into insights for you. You don’t have to read all 30 of these books cover to cover to find a great quote.
For example, last night I was reading a C.S. Lewis collection called Letters to Children, and I came across a wonderful quote on love:
A perfect man [would] never act from sense of duty; he’d always want the right thing more than the wrong one. Duty is only a substitute for love (of God and of other people)—like a crutch, which is a substitute for a leg. Most of us need the crutch at times: but of course it’s idiotic to use the crutch when our own legs (our own loves, tastes, habits etc) can do the journey on their own!*
Two things worth noting:
1) In Logos, I could come across that quote without ever knowing it existed. I could think, “I’d love a good Lewis quote on love,” and then search his collection for the word and find plenty to use.
2) I read that quote in a paper book that is not currently with me. I couldn’t remember just how the quote went, but I knew the word “crutch” was in it. In 30 seconds I opened Logos, searched the resource for “crutch,” found the quote, and pasted it here.
Ultimately, that’s why you should get this resource.
Because you, like me, have read enough Lewis to know you’re never done digging, and that you could fill a notebook with his insights on our world and faith. And Logos brings all those insights right to the surface.
Get the ultimate Lewis notebook by getting this collection in Logos. Don’t wait—C.S. Lewis is one of the most influential Christian writers of all the time, and this opportunity to save on his works ends at midnight (PST).
You’ve heard the skeptics: “We can’t trust the biblical manuscripts.” And sadly, many people believe them without actually knowing the facts.
So what do the experts really say?
The new Faithlife original film Fragments of Truth tackles skeptics’ claims head-on, providing a powerful resource for defending your faith. This feature-length documentary takes you around the globe with renowned scholar Dr. Craig Evans. Join him as he investigates ancient manuscripts, deciphers historical mysteries, and interviews leading experts on the reliability of the New Testament.
Not only is Fragments of Truth now available for home viewing, you can also get a group license and watch this edifying film with your whole church or study group. Viewers will come away better able to separate sober scholarship from sensationalism when explaining the firm foundation of the Gospels.
Plus, you can immediately download a free discussion guide to help facilitate conversations with your church, small group, or family.
What if the technology that surrounds us became discipleship tools?
With Faithlife Connect, family movie night is a way to disciple your kids; your laptop is a portal for deepening your understanding of Scripture; and your iPad is a library of trusted Christian books.

Twenty years ago this month, singer-songwriter Rich Mullins lost his life in a car accident on his way to a benefit concert in Kansas. We remember him from hit songs like “Awesome God” and “Sing Your Praise to the Lord.”
At the peak of his career, Mullins turned his back on fame and success to live on a Native American reservation in New Mexico, teaching music to children and sharing his simple hope in the gospel of Jesus.
But who really was the enigmatic performer whose bold honesty ruffled the feathers of the music industry—and his fellow believers? [Read more…]
Right now, you can take 15% off one of Logos Bible Software’s brand-new Reformed base packages. An entire library can be yours for less than a tenth the cost of buying the books in print.
For a lot of Christians, it’s easy to jump on board when a friend recommends the latest Francis Chan or Timothy Keller book. When a friend tells you to get a Logos base package, if you don’t know what makes a base package different, it can feel like they’re telling you to get a high-end sports car–and you already have a car that gets you around just fine. If you read regularly, chances are you already have a bookshelf and at least a small collection of theological works to supplement your Bible studies. But after you read those books for the first time, do you pick them up again, or do they just sit on the shelf?
Recently, Logos launched a line of brand-new Reformed base packages, and there has never been a better time to convert your library into a digital powerhouse. Logos libraries don’t collect dust on a shelf. They don’t fill up your tablet or mobile device with more things for you to scroll through. With Logos, your books go to work for you—and they don’t stop being useful after you read them. Logos combines the collective wisdom of every book you own, making them instantly searchable, so you can get answers when you need them, study deeper when you want to, and get more out of your books. And with a base package, you get hundreds of interconnected resources.
When you stumble across a powerful quote about the crucifixion, not only can you instantly share that quote with your Bible study through Faithlife groups, but you can also take that moment of awe and inspiration to instantly search across hundreds of books and find what some of Christianity’s greatest theologians, scholars, preachers, and authors have said about the historical and cultural context, the significance of Jesus’ suffering, or the parallels between the crucifixion and prophetic passages, like the suffering servant in Isaiah 53:4–12.
With a Reformed base package, the parallels become more clear, the context becomes more prominent, and profound insights become more accessible than ever. Leading Bible scholars all over the world use Logos for their personal Bible study. It saves them time and helps them go deeper into Scripture. And it can do the same for you. Timothy Keller says, “I have found Logos to be the most intuitive and complete Bible software out there.”
Take your Bible study further with a Reformed base package. With works by Martin Luther, John Calvin, William Tyndale, and John Knox at your fingertips, you can do so much more with your time. And right now, when you get a Reformed base package, you can take 15% off. This special offer ends Friday, May 16, so get yours today!
Shane Everett and Shane Barnard formed the duo Shane & Shane after meeting in College Station, Texas in the late 1990s. Since then, the pair has logged countless hours on the road, garnered multiple Dove Awards, enjoyed numerous A-list tour slots, and sold millions of tracks. Now husbands and fathers, the two men have set their sights on a more ambitious project—The Worship Initiative.
As they were touring, they always made time to invest in the development of other musicians, worship leaders, and songwriters. They recognized a need for formal training and encouragement in this community, so they constructed a plan to mentor from afar, challenging others to consider their calling, consider their craft, and consider creating.
They started by gathering some of their favorite musicians to record 100 songs, shooting video tutorials of each instrument. Add to that some powerful worship devotionals and a 14-week songwriting class, and you have something groundbreaking. At the heart of it all is an unwavering commitment to God’s Word. In their own words:
Logos Bible Software has changed the way we study God’s Word. We are so grateful for their commitment to making the Word of God and resources surrounding it available to us and the church.
Shane & Shane is just the latest in a string of musicians to acknowledge they use Logos Bible Software in their songwriting process. As we’ve often said, serious Bible study demands serious Bible study software; and songwriting at a high level definitely demands serious Bible study.
