If I didn’t think it would be repellent, I would write this post in all caps with bold, italics, and underlined font. Behind the scenes in Bellingham, WA, Logos Bible Software has been working on what I predict will be a genuine game-changer for Reformed research, scholarship, and education. Add this as the most recent significant event on Tim Challies’ “Where Did All These Calvinists Come From?”
As a Logos user for the past few years, I have experienced unexpected benefits from using the program for exegesis and theological research—mining the original languages, consulting online commentaries, and searching with breakneck speed through digitized theological volumes. But as research progressed, I found myself in a financial position of only being able to purchase a couple digitized Reformed works—the works of Cornelius Van Til and Richard Muller’s 4-volume Post-Reformation Reformed Dogmatics, for example.
- Calvin’s Institutes (2 vols), his tracts and treatises (8 vols), and his commentaries (46 vols)
- The works of John Owen (including Hebrews commentary)
- The works of Thomas Goodwin (12 vols)
- The works of Charles Hodge (29 vols)
- Select works of Geerhardus Vos
- B.B. Warfield Collection (20 vols)
- Bavinck’s Reformed Dogmatics (4 vols)
and on and on. The list above is a tiny sample from the master list of what the package includes.
This post only serves as a brief heads up, but stay tuned for a full episode of Reformed Media Review where we will go into detail about this, and we will also let you know about more exciting things coming from Logos.
