- Is there a book version of this?
- F B Folmer, yes right here: https://www.logos.com/product/9634/the-21-irrefutable-laws-of-leadership-follow-them-and-people-will-follow-you I hope this helps!
- Great book. I loved that he added some exercises at the end as well as answers. In this way you can actually practice what he is explaining. Very good grasp of how to hold people's attention by sticking with the message of the text. If you search for Lucas O'Neill on YouTube you can find some of his Sermons, some of which overlap with his examples in the book. This made it very practical for me. Great book! I cannot wait to start preaching this way
- Logos 8 is a very good Bible software program with many many features. It takes a little while to learn how to use it ( I am still learning new things every now and then) but they really help out with useful articles and video tutorials. Logos is my primary tool for Bible study, writing essays, preparing church talks and learning more about ancient history and the church. The loading times are much faster than with Logos 7. I also really like the note taking system, though I would have liked to see an option to change the default markers. Another thing I miss is the Dutch language resources. I really would like more Dutch items, as the Dutch have been very important for Reformed history. Logos is a joy to work with. Sometimes I just start it up because I like looking at it and playing with it so much.
- Bray's voice takes some getting used to, but he gives a really good overview of the history of Biblical interpretation. The links to additional readings are very helpful as well. Sometimes, though, you get a list of 4 readings where 2 readings pretty much share the same information. I think that that is useful for people who do not own all or most of the books this course refers to, but it is a bit of a waste of time to try and read everything, as much information is duplicated. I would have liked a bit more in the way of case studies. For instance with the Jewish interpretation that Bray would give an example of a Pesher interpretation of a certain passage, or maybe a reading link where that happens. Just to get more of a feel for what the interpretation looked like. Though I understand that that may be a bit difficult and too deep for a course with such a broad scope. All in all great resource. Definitely recommend it.
