5 Reasons to Get Logos 5

Logos Bible Software 5Three months ago we launched a brand new version of our Bible study software for PC and Mac: Logos Bible Software 5. If you haven’t checked it out yet, I’d encourage you to. Logos 5 is faster, better organized, and easier to use, and it has a cleaner look and lots of new and improved features. It’s a fabulous tool for studying the Bible, theology, church history, and so much more. I’ve been using it for more than a decade. It’s easily one of the best investments I’ve ever made. I wish every Christian family in the world owned at least one copy.

Here are five reasons you should consider purchasing it:

  1. It’s an excellent value. The base packages give you access to a wealth of books, data, and tools at a significant savings off print.
  2. It’s cutting-edge. You’ll get access to some one-of-a-kind data and tools that will help you study the Bible more deeply and efficiently.
  3. It’s accessible. Unlike most programs that limit the number of devices you can use your purchase on, Logos allows you to access your library on as many of your personal devices as you want: PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, and online at Biblia.com.
  4. It’s extensible. The base packages give you a library of hundreds or thousands of resources, but there’s plenty of room to grow from there. You can choose from more than 32,000 Logos and Vyrso books to grow your library to meet your needs.
  5. It’s on sale. The special introductory upgrade discounts end today (Monday, February 4, 2013).

If you’re still not sure, there’s a risk-free, 30-day, no-questions-asked, money-back guarantee. You can easily return it for a full refund if you’re not completely satisfied with your purchase.

Here are a couple videos to whet your appetite.

If you’re new to Logos, start by checking out the features, and then compare the 7 base packages.

If you’re an existing user, check out the new and updated features, and then compare your discounted upgrade options.

    I’ll have to look into this in more detail. I am using eSword currently. What advantages does this software offer versus eSword?

      Esword is a great program for what it is and does, but it’s quite a bit different from Logos in many ways. The closest analogy I can think of is Microsoft Paint vs. Adobe Photoshop.

      The differences can probably be categorized into three main groups: the software itself, the unique datasets, and the book selection.

      Logos is a robust piece of technology with some very sophisticated tools that let you do things you can’t do anywhere else. It’s far more than just a reader with basic search functionality. It’s hard to cover all of those differences in a blog comment. I’d suggest you watch a few videos and check out the links I posted above.

      Logos includes some one-of-a-kind datasets that enable some really powerful functionality. We have custom-created datasets of all the people, places, things, and events of the Bible. We have syntax and clause databases that allow you to find connections that just weren’t easily discoverable before. We have a senses database that makes connections through word meanings rather than merely word forms. And many more. Esword doesn’t have any of this.

      Esword has mainly public domain titles. Logos has most of those public domain titles (and more) and tens of thousands of recent works as well. For serious Bible study, it’s important to learn from voices old and new.

      Hope this helps a little. Sorry I can’t go into more detail right now.
