FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
Bellingham, Wash., November 1, 2013—Nova Scotia native Greg Monette is partnering with U.S.-based Logos Bible Software to strengthen and encourage fellow Canadians in their Bible study efforts. Monette will serve as Logos’ ambassador to any church or ministry group wanting to explore ways to deepen biblical engagement or how to effectively use tools like Logos Bible Software, Proclaim Church Presentation Software, the Faithlife Study Bible and more.
“Outside the U.S., Canada is our largest customer base,” said Bob Pritchett, Logos’ president and CEO. “Greg Monette understands the church in Canada and will be able to represent us in person more often, helping us better serve our users there.”
A Ph.D. candidate at Trinity College of the University of Bristol in the U.K., Monette is passionate about studying Scripture and helping bring it to life for others. “Helping people discover tools that really open the Bible up is even better than a great hockey playoff,” Monette said. “I am privileged and honored to serve as Logos Bible Software’s ambassador to my fellow Canadians.”
His role comes with new challenges for Logos — tasks Monette is already dispatching with enthusiasm. “We want to create a sense of community among Logos’ Canadian users and bring them together and assist each other in our online forum,” Monette said. “We also want to increase the number of titles from Canadian authors, pastors and theologians in the Logos Bible Software library. We already have great books from authors like Gordon Fee, Craig A. Evans, Stanley Porter, J. I. Packer and D. A. Carson — along with several others — but we plan to see that list to grow broader and deeper.” To accomplish this, Monette is building a mailing list of thousands of Canadian Logos users; presenting at ministry conferences; and inviting authors, publishers and pastors to publish their work using Logos.
“The Logos Bible Software resource library will soon have 40,000 titles in it,” Monette said. “A surprising number of those works were written by authors with deep but not well-known connections to Canada. I want to highlight this, draw attention to the intellectual gifts Canada has given to the world and help my fellow Canadians enjoy that same heritage using Logos Bible Software.”
