When I was approached to review an electronic book product, I at first didn’t know what to think. I am a book lover. I will never get past wanting a physical book in my hands. Still, it is the wave of the future, maybe even the present, and electronic books are here to stay. Among such products there is no doubt that Logos Bible Software is the preeminent place for all kinds of scholarly and pastoral books.
I had the 10 volumes of the New Library of Pastoral Care made available to me for this review. Of course I couldn’t read all 10 volumes in this short time, but there is a wide variety of topics covered in this set. Topics like counseling, caring for the dying and bereaved, helping those with mental illness, developing listening skills, and even being a theologian as a pastor are some of the best discussed. As its title implies, this set is a virtual library in pastoral issues. I recommend it. Check it out here.
A valuable feature is that you can get a copy of the Bible to incorporate as you study. Check it out here. This greatly increases the value of this product.
The beauty of Logos is that it can be used on any “smart” device. It worked well on my iPad, and it of course works on regular PCs. There is a simple link to download any needed apps.
I feel YouTube videos will make more sense than me trying to explain uses in words. Check out this video for ideas for using in sermon preparation, or actually writing out a sermon. Here is another video with an impressive clause search feature.
I am still sticking to books, but I am glad to have this opportunity to use a product that is so widely used by preachers and Bible students every where. If I can take a plunge, anyone can!
I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
