Hunter’s thesis was that, although the Apostle Paul was an innovative and impressive thinker and defender of his mission, he was also heavily indebted to “those who were in Christ” before him. Hunter conducted several investigations of Pauline texts to demonstrate this, and he did so persuasively in my view.

Stephen Altrogge has a helpful post introducing time blocking. Stephen begins,
Most people use their calendars reactively, meaning that they put things on their calendars as they come up. Someone wants to grab coffee? On the calendar. The boss calls a meeting? On the calendar. A conference call with the publishing team? On the calendar.
The problem with this approach is that it can lead to the day getting very chopped up, which then makes it difficult to get things done which require in-depth thinking. If you’re constantly interrupted by meetings, phone calls, and emails, it’s tough to make progress on meaningful tasks.
Enter time blocking.
Some of the key steps Stephen outlines for time blocking are to:
Stephen also recommends that, when time blocking, you “overestimate the time it will take you to complete tasks”—since we have a tendency to do just the opposite—and “create an overflow day if you find yourself constantly falling behind in your schedule.”
There’s no doubt about it—you can drop a lot of money on biblical studies software.
For Logos users, there’ve been ways to gift resources in the past. But at least for a good while, this was comparatively cumbersome.
The Logos store now, however, has a proper gift card purchasing option. I haven’t used this as yet. And from the comments on the page, there look to be some limitations with the current implementation.
But for those of you who are considering or who have also joined the Logos community, this offering may prove a helpful addition.
