Logos Is Serious about Scholarship

We are excited to announce that our Academic Editor, Dr. Mike Heiser, was named 2007 SBL Pacific Northwest Regional Scholar in November at the SBL National Conference in San Diego. The details are available in our press release. In our commitment to being the most advanced and powerful Bible software on the planet, we are thrilled to have gifted people like Mike in the company.
Mike is ably leading the academic team to make advanced biblical studies easier and more powerful than ever with ground-breaking products like Hebrew and Greek Syntax databases, the Niese edition of Josephus in Greek, the Ugaritic Library, the Semitic Inscriptions: Analyzed Texts and English Translations, the Qumran Biblical Dead Sea Scrolls Database, the Lexham Greek-English Interlinear Septuagint, the Lexham Greek-English Interlinear New Testament, and many more exciting products that are in the works but too top secret to mention yet!
Logos also hosts a monthly academic Lecture Series, featuring speakers like Dr. Rod Stiling, Dr. V. Philips Long, Dr. James Herrick, Dr. Mark Futato, Dr. Mark Goodacre, Dr. Daniel B. Wallace, David Sielaff, Dr. Michael Heiser, Dr. H. Wayne House, Dr. Peter Flint, Dr. Samuel Lamerson, and Dr. Steve Delamarter.
In short, Logos is serious about scholarship.
But don’t read into this strong academic tone a movement away from our commitment to lay Bible study. The very heart of our vision is to provide an incredibly powerful tool that is still very accessible. Logos is easy enough for a beginner, yet powerful enough for the most advanced scholar. No matter where you are in the spectrum, Logos offers you a vast array of powerful tools and resources perfectly suited to take you to the next level. From the simplicity of the homepage to the power of the syntax databases, Logos is the right tool for any age and any skill level—and we plan to keep it that way.

  1. When are the bilblical DSS and inscriptions databases due to see the light of day?

    Congratulations and best wishes to Dr. Heiser. Way to go!
    It was Logos’ decision to invest heavily in scholarship that drew me away from BibleWorks.
    But I really appreciate the accessibility of Logos for the lay folk I teach as a retired pastor.
    So, may our Lord “envision,” enable, and encourage all of you to keep up the good work He has begun in you.

  3. “But don’t read into this strong academic tone a movement away from our commitment to lay Bible study.”
    A pity ;) I think some people are driven off by Logos’ overt Protestantism, or at least, appearance thereof.
    Of course, EV Protestants are also the prime market…

  4. I’m with Ben. I don’t mind committing to lay Bible study, but the overwhelming mass of ultra-conservative (bordering on fundamentalist) resources could use some more balance at the lay level.
