The Verbum Easter Giveaway has ended, and we have a winner! Dustin Busse from Oregon is now the proud owner of Verbum Capstone+ and a brand new MacBook Air. Congratulations Dustin!
We were excited to find out that Dustin will be going to seminary this fall, so I asked him a few questions about his upcoming studies:
1. Where are you going to seminary?
I will be attending Mt. Angel Seminary located here in Oregon.
2. What are you most excited to study?
At this point, I am very interested in Systematic Theology and Sacred Scripture studies. Having just finished a 27 week series of online courses on Spiritual Theology through www.catholicgospelproject.org, I feel spiritually supercharged as I head into seminary studies. I have been reaping the benefits of a strong devotion to Lectio Divina. As a result I am diving deeper and deeper in Sacred Scripture and soaking up everything I can in terms of the teachings of the Catholic Church throughout the ages.
3. How will Verbum help you with your studies?
Verbum has already been a valuable tool in terms of scripture studies and I have barely scratched the surface of what it has to offer in that regard. I am sure that as I go further into studies in this area a resource like Verbum Capstone+ will be a well of knowledge that I will go back to time and again.
4. Do you have a favorite Catholic author/Church Father that you enjoy reading? Why do you like them?
I love St. Augustine of Hippo. The Confessions of St. Augustine has been one of my favorite spiritual readings outside of Sacred Scripture. He had such an eloquent way of writing and speaking the to heart as well as the intellect. With his background in rhetoric and study under St. Ambrose, it is no surprise that he can pose a power-packed treatise on a wide array of topics.
I also want to thank everyone at Logos and especially those involved in bringing the Verbum product to the market. I feel that the Catholic world has been starving for a good comprehensive means of scripture study that allows us to tie Sacred Scripture to sound Catholic teachings. As more and more people discover this wonderful resource and learn how to unlock everything in it through its many research tools, it will present the opportunity to grow in leaps and bounds in terms of faith and knowledge.
Thanks again to everyone who entered. We hope you had a wonderful Easter season!
Like everyone else, I was really hoping I’d win, but the Holy Spirit found someone much more deserving. I’m thrilled to see a soon-to-be seminarian will have these tools. I can’t think of a better use of them. God Bless, Dustin.
Dustin, I don’t know of a more deserving guy than you. Congratulations and many blessings to you in seminary. And Verbum, great giveaway contest!
Congratulations! This is awesome that a seminarian won the contest. You will find Logo’s helpful. Try to get to Camp Logos in Bellingham if you get the opportunity.
You will be in my prayers!
Congratulations Dustin! Prayers for you as you enter seminary and begin the discernment process. God Bless.
