As ETS comes to a close and SBL just beginning, there is a palpable excitement about getting the most recent scholarship on relevant issues and topics; Logos Mobile Education provides a new, high-quality way to do just that. Mobile Ed instructors are experts in their fields, and many have decades of experience teaching and writing while continuing to interact with other scholars and hone their insights and research. The instructors are paired with an instructional designer who works with them to take their flagship material, hone it, and craft it into an incredibly useful and efficient learning platform.
If you have not yet added Mobile Ed courses to your library, you have many options and instructors to choose from. But don’t worry if you’re not interested in “taking a course” in the traditional sense: Mobile Ed courses are deeply integrated with Logos Bible Software to bring the content from these scholars to the forefront of your studies as it would any commentary or reference work in your library. Speaking of Douglas J. Moo’s Mobile Ed course on Romans, Michael Bird writes on his blog:
Doug Moo has written six commentaries on Romans – yes, that’s right, you heard me, six - in the WEC (1991), entry on Romans in NBC (1994), NICNT (1996), NIVAC (2000) plus companion BBL (2008), EBS (2002), and ZIBBS (2007). You can see the complete list here. A second edition of the EBC volume just came out and I believe that a second edition of the NICNT is scheduled too. Rather than than read all six commentaries or even just his magisterial NICNT commentary, in this Logos module you literally get Moo talking at you and giving you a distillation of his mature thought on the matter.
Whether you’re looking for Dr. Moo’s latest thought on Romans, Dr. George Guthrie’s extensive work on Hebrews, or a refresher on missiology, Mobile Ed has something to help you in your studies.
