What do you think is the most important question you might have if you were about to begin a rigorous MA in biblical studies at Oxford? Would it concern your reading list of primary and secondary sources? Would it be more practical, as in which part of Oxford to live?
But a good friend of mine, who is about to begin a daunting two-year MA program at Oxford this fall, asked me none of these questions. He wanted to know, “Which Logos Base Package should I buy?”
Having considered other Bible programs on offer, he was especially impressed by the dual capabilities of Logos, both the original language resources and the digital library. But importantly, which base package would suit a young scholar-in-training at one of the most elite institutions in the world?
There was really only one choice, which he actually made himself: Logos Platinum. And then he told me, with glee, that instead of the normal 20% for faculty and students, he could now take advantage of a 25% discount on all Logos base packages.
Of course I affirmed that choice, because he gained himself a substantial theological library packed with the best commentary sets and original language resources. I believe without a doubt he has made the most important financial investment of his career (this is true when you’ve earned a full scholarship).
I personally made the upgrade to a full-blown Logos package halfway through my PhD, and I still regret having waited so long to do it. My current Logos-equipped workflow is more efficient than anything I could accomplish with physical books (and I have many). Unfortunately for me, I wasn’t able to take advantage of a 25% off deal like my friend, and you, are now able to do.
So stop asking yourself the question, “Do I need Logos Platinum?” Of course you do. I needed it at Durham. My friends need it (and use it) at Oxford, Cambridge, Duke, Wheaton, Princeton, Edinburgh et al., both during their degrees and now as full-time faculty.
With zero-interest financing, the new academic year quickly approaching, and 25% off any base package you choose, it’s time to grab your discount and get to work.
Finally, if you really want to boost your preparation for the new school year, consider purchasing all nine of the excellent hand-picked resources in the Back-to-School deal for an extra 20% off.
