When I was in Bible College I didn't own a computer. Even if I did, most of my biblical study required a dozen books open and spread out across my desk, dresser, and bed. From an NASB Exhaustive Concordance, to Bible dictionaries, to commentaries, and much more it took a lot of time and effort to do good research. Today we have the gift of Bible software that dramatically cuts down the time and increases the ease involved involved in serious Bible study.
If you read this blog you might know that I have been a Logos user for a number of years and am all-in with this program. I believe, with many others, that this is the best option available for those looking for an all-inclusive platform from which to study Scripture. And today Logos 6 is now available. Check out the video below and following press release for all the details. Now's the time to upgrade or even pick up the Logos for the first time.
BELLINGHAM, Wash., October 27, 2014 — Faithlife Corporation, makers of Logos Bible Software, just released Logos 6, the world’s most innovative Bible study software. Logos 6 offers a brand-new lineup of tools and resources that empower Christians to study the Bible’s background, explore Greek and Hebrew, visualize the biblical world, and make new and exciting discoveries.
“Logos 6 is all about delivering insight,” said Bob Pritchett, Faithlife president and CEO. “Building on the innovations in Logos 4 and 5, this release offers new Bible study tools and interactive media that aim to dramatically change the way Christians study the Word. Logos 6 will impact pastors, scholars, students and laypeople all over the world.”
For pastors, one of the biggest wins is Logos 6’s ability to help them create better sermons, faster. Innovative tools like Visual Copy and Cultural Concepts equip pastors to create engaging presentations while they study and explore the cultural perspective from which Scripture was written.
“Logos 6 empowers pastors to take back their Fridays,” Pritchett said. “They can make new discoveries and share their findings in fresh and engaging ways — all in a fraction of the time.”
For scholars, tools like Textual Variants and Ancient Literature equip them to do intense academic research with ease — with a click, they can connect Scripture to ancient literature and study the Word side by side with original manuscripts and primary texts. Likewise, students can perform impressive research with new study tools, like Inline Search, Morph Charts and Text Converters.
The layperson will also find everything they need for powerful study: easy-to-use tools like Factbook, Everything Search and Interactive Media offer a deeper, more engaging look at Scripture.
“We created Logos 6 so that real people all over the globe could do better, more insightful study — no matter how busy they are or how little they may know about the Bible,” Pritchett said.
Logos 6 is the most advanced Bible study software on the market. Faithlife, its parent company, is the worldwide leader in electronic tools and resources for Bible study, partnering with more than 200 publishers to offer over 43,000 resources across the globe.
