About 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.

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.

This is the most used and most cherished program on my Mac. I have been a Logos (formerly Libronix) user since 1999. I am thankful for the effort and ingenuity of the Logos team to continue to advance the exceptional quality of their product.

Pros

You can't beat having an entire digital library in the palm of your hands. The speed at which users can access resources is unparalleled and the linking up of books is genius.

Cons

Two features that would dramatically improve my Logos experience:
1. Allow users to move more quickly through opened resources. At present a user has to click on the left and right button in order to move through resources. This is slow, cumbersome and inefficient. Especially when a user has 20 or more resources opened.

2. On the mobile app allow users to set their own highlighter defaults. The current default is set to highlighter. But this user prefers solid colors as well as bold, underline and large text. This feature would be greatly improved if you allowed user to selected their own default highlight once a text is selected rather than creating a few extra steps.

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?

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.

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.

Best Product for Bible Study

Reviewed on 2021/01/19

Fantastic!

Fantastic!

Pros

I love the great variety of digital resources that are available in the software and for purchase. I love the way the works are all tagged and can be searched. The integration features are fantastic.

This software beats the old days when I would have multiple commentaries & resources open and spread out all over my desk while studying for sermons, listens, et.

Cons

It has so many options that it takes a lot of time investment to learn how to utilize them all. Of course, you don't have to use all the options, but you feel like you're paying for stuff that could be helpful and and you hate to pay for it and then not use it.
