Laridian Logo Apparel Available at our Lands’ End Store

Posted on: August 21st, 2009 by Craig Rairdin

Laridian LogoOne of our PocketBible beta testers spotted a picture of Jeff in a Laridian pullover with me in a Laridian polo and asked if he could purchase Laridian apparel anywhere.

We have a long-standing relationship with Lands’ End going back to our days at Parsons Technology. I have a picture on my wall of the entire Church Software Division staff at Parsons in our purple Parsons polos from 1995, and for a couple of years I gave out Lands’ End gift certificates to them as Christmas gifts.

Lands’ End normally password-protects logos so that they won’t be used without permission. So I went fishing for a way that you can use our logos on your purchases there. Turns out they have a way for us to create our own store. We don’t get a commission, which is dumb, but you get to use our logos.

So here’s a link to Laridian at Lands’ End. There are two versions of the Laridian logo. One is the one you see here. The other has LARIDIAN in large type with a very small version of the flying book logo below it. That version is in black and looks good on most colors.

Note that you don’t automatically get the Laridian logo on everything you buy. You have to add it. Once you select your item, there’s an option to choose a logo and a location on the item to put the logo.

Like I said we don’t make a dime from these sales, but the quality is very good and customer service is excellent. We hope you’ll enjoy your Laridian apparel from Lands’ End!

Book Review: Bible Knowledge Commentary

Posted on: August 12th, 2009 by Michelle Stramel 6 Comments

As you spend quiet time with God, studying His Word, do you ever wish for a better understanding? Seek to really KNOW what God is saying in the passage, and how you can better apply it to your life? I do. I am often not satisfied with merely reading, but need to truly understand what is being said. This can mean not only finding out the original Greek or Hebrew of the text, but also understanding in what context it was originally written, who it was originally written to, and in what circumstance the receivers were in that they needed those particular words at that particular moment in time. Incorporating the Bible Knowledge Commentary into my study times; gives answers into the background information of a book or passage and insight into the original text.
