Review of Logos Bible Software’s “Abraham: Following God’s Promise”

Logos Bible Software has offered the curriculum, Abraham: Following God’s Promise for free in return for writing a review of the material on my blog. So here it is!

As with most anything Logos puts out the technical quality of this material is first rate. The content of the material is very good. The writers do a great job of giving background material of what life was like in Abraham’s time. I do believe they try too hard to make a modern application of Abraham’s life to ours, such as “Reflect on an occasion when God led you to the right place at the right time. Was your experience like Abram’s, with God leading in a clear and obvious way? If you couldn’t see His hand in the events of that time, how did you react?”  The leading of God that many profess today often is very subjective. Not so in Abram’s case. God communicated with him verbally. But, as they say, eat the fish and throw away the bones.

The PowerPoint slides in the curriculum are excellent. I would love to see Logos produce more  high quality artwork such as this that will serve to illustrate the teacher’s own content and inspire his own creativity.

Well done Logos.
