Few deny the gulf that tends to exist between laypeople and those in biblical academia. If the shared vocabulary between the average church-goer and the biblical academic were mapped on a Venn diagram, I suspect the shaded area would be surprisingly small. Sermons become lofty and hard to understand, teaching neglects the effectiveness of simplicity, and books are written by academics, for academics. How can we bridge that gap to bring biblical and theological training to the layperson?
Enter Logos Mobile Education.
The Mobile Ed team works closely with scholars like Craig Evans, Darrell Bock, Jeannine Brown, and Mark Futato to bring in-depth theological and biblical studies to the layperson in a helpful and understandable fashion. But don’t assume the content is dumbed down! Rather, each Mobile Ed course integrates with Logos Bible Software to become an unparalleled learning environment. Teaching segments are short—around 5–10 minutes—with a logical start and end to each. So students won’t have to block out an hour for a complicated lecture. Instead, they’ll get to focus on each topic in a bite-sized chunk, delving into one thing at a time.
Every video lesson is accompanied by an enriched transcript. When a systematic-theology course starts talking about Barth’s revised supralapsarianism, students can pause the video, highlight the word or phrase, and explore an entire library of information with a click, helping them understand important and complex topics. At the end of each segment, students will find further readings on the topic, so their courses become starting points to propel them into greater study. Mobile Ed is a great tool for training, and Logos Bible Software is the perfect platform for learning.
We—along with Ben Witherington, Jonathan Pennington, Doug Moo, and all the other world-class scholars we have partnered with—commend Logos Mobile Education to you, your students, and your church members. Help foster a spiritually robust life and ministry. Take a look at the courses available from Logos Mobile Education, try them out, and spread the word!
