Logos Bible Software Overview

What is Logos Bible Software?

Logos Bible Software is a cloud-based solution designed to help pastors, scholars and religious organizations streamline processes for biblical studies using built-in search tools, summaries and an eBooks library. The platform comes with step-by-step instructions which allow users to choose from a variety of learning options such as Bible study or sermon preparation.

Logos Bible Software’s canvas tool lets scholars create charts/diagrams to summarize meaning or highlight passages with personalized messages using custom fonts, colors and shapes. The platform offers a range of features including custom workflows, theology guides, a course library, psalm explorer, notes, visual filters, and more. Logos Bible Software enables users to create, organize and share notebooks or passages with other scholars. The sermon editor automatically generates customizable slides, as well as visual handouts, and allows users to add speaking prompts, scriptures and quotations.

Logos Bible Software includes predefined search templates which help scholars find content for people, places, addresses, cross-references, or verses. The reverse interlinears feature allows users to access lexicons and explanations to get word-by-word comparisons.

Can't Live Without It

I am thoroughly impressed by Faithlife (the corporation behind the production of Logos). I use Logos every day, and can't imagine a day without it.

Invaluable Bible Software

I find Logos Bible Software an invaluable tool for researching the Bible to write sermons and produce research papers. I love the integration with Proclaim presentation software. The breadth of features are enormous and the output is well organised and accessible.

Keep your Books and Build Your Physically Library

Horrible. The techs are condescending and rude when you ask for help. The software is just beyond frustrating. Why would you take a platform like WordSearch away from pastors that are already struggling to find time and energy to prepare with all the added issues of Covid and the chaos in our culture?

The Swiss Army Knife of Bible Study

I've used a lot of Bible software over the years. Many of them have been very well done. But Logos is more powerful and feature rich than others. It seems very mature and polished having a professional feel to it. For me it takes my Bible study to the next level. It provides quick cross references, images, Greek and Hebrew resources including audible pronunciations, maps, and much more.

Top Class Software by any measure and a joy to use

I have been using Logos for over 15 years and have found that the software goes from strength to strength. From simple reading on the better than Kindle e-reading system to complex academic research, Logos knows it's craft, designs beautifully and effectively, and gives more than it takes.

I am thoroughly impressed by Faithlife (the corporation behind the production of Logos). I use Logos every day, and can't imagine a day without it.

Pros

I use Logos every single day, and I have no regrets. I have almost completely migrated my theological library from physical books to Logos. It is unbelievable how useful it is to be able to search through my library when studying a passage of Scripture, as everything is cross-linked. What used to take hours in study or research, I can now do with Logos in minutes or even seconds. This gets me farther than before, faster and more effectively than ever.

Cons

Logos has a drastic learning curve. The software is not very intuitive but requires lots of patience and instruction. I have found that curve worth plodding, however. The customer service is fabulous in helping people get up to speed with the system.

I find Logos Bible Software an invaluable tool for researching the Bible to write sermons and produce research papers. I love the integration with Proclaim presentation software. The breadth of features are enormous and the output is well organised and accessible.

Pros

Logos bible software is a dynamic integration of research features available for serious students of the Bible. I use the product regularly to prepare sermons and research topics. The software is vast in its scope but has good entry level points for the inexperienced user. Advanced use of the software allows complex searches using other languages. Greek and Hebrew students will find excellent resources. I love the clear presentation of results which enables me to make sense of lots of material.

Cons

Software of this complexity does not come cheaply. However, I have found the investment well rewarded over many years. Intermediate and advanced users of the software may struggle to come to grips with the nuances but there is paid and free support from an enthusiastic community. Logos themselves support the product well. Of course, logos cannot provide every book needed for study, so the software will likely need to be supplemented from a print library.

Why would you take a platform like WordSearch away from pastors that are already struggling to find time and energy to prepare with all the added issues of Covid and the chaos in our culture?

Pros

Nothing. It is expensive, over complicated and not practical for a pastor that has multiple demands on his time and attention.

Cons

Everything. I resent the fact that I was forced by LifeWay to leave WordSearch that I have invested thousands of dollars in to build a wonderful library. Logos cannot compete with WordSearch so they bought and shut it down. This is one the most unethical things I have witnessed and it is no difference than someone walking in my house and stealing over 2,000 volumes from my library.

It provides quick cross references, images, Greek and Hebrew resources including audible pronunciations, maps, and much more.

Pros

Logos Bible Software is simple enough to be used by anyone yet has enough power for the scholar or theologian. There are quite a few different packages which can help get you started for less money and still have some solid features. However, if you can afford it a more expensive package comes with an amazing amount of resources.

One of my favorite features is how you can hover over words and instantly get all kinds of information in an instant. Also, the Reading Plans can really help keep you on track and there are many to chose from. You can have multiple panels open and then link them together so that as you scroll through the Bible and other resources they all stay synchronized.

Hover over any Bible reference and it displays a preview. Click on it and it takes you to that passage in your preferred Bible.

Another great feature is that all your data, notes, highlights and documents are kept in sync and available if you go to another computer or Logos on a mobile device.

Cons

Honestly, the downside would be the price. I understand why it can be expensive with all the resources and features you get but it makes it hard for the average person to purchase. Lately they have provided some good options though, whether it's Faithlife Connect or through your church using Faithlife Equip.

Pros

The company works hard to innovate new ways of studying the Bible, highlighting insights, tagging 1000s of books with extensive metadata, creating unique reports from research, and streamling research.

Cons

The bundling of tools, databases, and features can sometimes mean I miss out on something useful because I just can't justify paying for the bigger bundle for one or two functions.
