The following is an article I published in the March 2022 edition of Faithlife’s Bible Study Magazine.
Join us for a special online seminar hosted by yours truly in partnership with Logos Bible Software. The topic is: How to best use Logos in ministry — pastoral and more.
Logos Bible Software is currently used by over 6 million people worldwide. In this free seminar, you will learn how Logos can help you accomplish Bible study and ministry tasks effectively and efficiently.
We’ll be joined by National Presenter for Faithlife and Logos Bible Software, Matt Stack. You’ll be able to ask questions, and together we’ll explore ways to utilize Logos in your ministry.
Approximately six months ago, I reviewed the new Logos 9 following its release.
I’ve been asked again by Logos to give a follow-up review, now that I’ve had a chance to use the product for some time.
In this review, I’ll survey Logos 9’s new features again, but now from the vantage point of having used Logos 9 for approximately 6 months.
As you may remember in my original review, I was a bit uncertain about dark mode and whether or not I’d ultimately like it and utilize it. “Jury’s out,” I said. Well, the jury has finished deliberating, and I like it.
I have my Logos set to follow my computer system which follows the sunrise/sunset. So, once sundown hits, I’m all dark mode with Logos. I have found my eyes able to adjust (something I was originally skeptical of). The dark mode can be easier on the eyes, not to mention the fact that just switching between dark and light modes keeps the aesthetics fresh.Continue reading

The following is part 3 in a 3-part series on Why I Choose to Build My Library in Logos (The Benefits of Logos Over Physical Books) — follow this link to see the other posts from this series.
Benefits of Owning a Library in Logos
11. Books Are More Than Books–Integration with Powerful Tools
12. Side-By-Side with Fantastic Study Tools
13. Greek & Hebrew Made Easy
14. Pricing (Bundles & Discounts)
Admittedly, it’s not abnormal for Logos’ prices on individual books to be more expensive than, say, its price Amazon or other book retailers. (Part of this is due to that fact that, as I’ve said, when you’re buying a Logos book you’re not just buying the book, as you would elsewhere, but a book that’s been enhanced by their team for integration in Logos’ program and its functionalities.)
Nonetheless, Logos frequently runs sales–and every few months they even put out some really good sales. Moreover, if you buy your books in their bundles, you can save some money in the long run. Specifically, if you can afford to purchase a package, that’s one of the best ways to get a load of books at a significantly discounted rate per book.
15. More Books (Base Packages & Bundles)
Finally, when you build your library in Logos using their bundled, discounted packages, you’ll likely find your library to be far larger than it would have been otherwise if you had built it merely by purchasing physical books one at a time–or even set by set. The way Logos is built on packages, which supply a well-rounded assortment of resources, you’ll find your library to be much fuller and complete than it would have been otherwise.
