Logos 4: Add Websites to the Logos Shortcuts Bar

mp|seminars Tips Today’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris, who has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos seminars, provides many training materials.

I was reminded this week that new users join the Logos family every day. And what is a “yesterday” tip for me (and perhaps for you too) is an “ah ha!” feature for a newcomer. With that in mind, I offer this oldie but goodie.

A Logos user contacted me recently, explaining that he used several websites in his Bible study and sermon preparation. Was there, he asked, an efficient way to jump from Logos to a website?

Yes, there is, and here’s how to implement it:

  • Open Logos and your web browser.
  • Arrange the Logos and the browser windows onscreen so that you can see both at once.
  • Navigate to a website.
  • Drag the website’s icon from the browser’s address bar to the Logos Shortcuts bar.
  • Repeat the above two steps for as many websites as you want.
  • Click a Logos shortcut icon to jump to that page.
  • Right click a shortcut icon and select Delete to remove it.

Here are some suggested websites:

Remember that these shortcuts will synchronize to your other computers using Logos’ desktop version, so you only have to create them once.

Get Interactive with Abraham Complete Church Curriculum!

Are you the kind of Bible reader who likes to fill the margins with handwritten notes? Do you feel compelled to underline significant verses when working through a reading plan? For many people, this record of study makes their own Bible more significant to them. That’s why Abraham: Following God’s Promise includes fill-in-the-blank boxes [see an example] where you can write and save your answers to reflection questions, giving you the option of leaving the same kind of record in your Logos book.

An eight-week self-study program, Abraham: Following God’s Promise combines in-depth interpretation, theology, and application insights. And to help you reflect on the material’s relevance to your life, each section of the program contains questions encouraging you to pause and contemplate the reading and your response.

Beneath each question, fill-in-the-blank boxes allow you to record your thoughts in your Logos book. As a personal study tool, Abraham: Following God’s Promise combines the best of the digital features you’ve come to expect from Logos resources—interconnectivity with other Logos materials, memorable media, and in-depth Bible study—with the appeal of the personal notation possible in print Bibles.

As a group-study resource, Abraham: Following God’s Promise becomes a powerful tool for weekly small-group meetings. Take your digital book to your group and review the material together. With the answers to your reflection questions saved in your book, you can easily share your reflections and insights with others.

In addition, if your pastor has adopted Abraham: Following God’s Promise as your church’s curriculum, you can take your digital book to church on Sunday morning and follow along.

As your pastor preaches the sermon series, compare your insights. Your entire church—as individuals, as groups, and as a congregation—can grow together in a deeper understanding of Abraham’s story. You can discover its relevance for you and your church community starting today.

Abraham: Following God’s Promise provides a robust Bible study for those who want to grow in their understanding of Abraham’s life and its significance today. Known for providing tools for original-language study, Logos now provides an in-depth Bible study program for those who want to go deeper but who may not have training in original languages. Join us by purchasing the single volume self-study program or the complete church curriculum for pastors and leaders today.

Free Book of the Month: The Epistle to the Hebrews

“Every student of the Epistle to the Hebrews must feel that it deals in a peculiar degree with the thoughts and trials of our own time.”

Thus begins Brooke Foss Westcott’s The Epistle to the Hebrews, August’s Free Book of the Month.

This classic reference work takes you deep into Hebrews through extensive verse-by-verse exegetical commentary and multiple dissertations on related subjects. An extensive introduction covers this important epistle’s title, history, and purpose.

“Bishop Westcott’s treatise is, and will doubtless finally take its place as, a classical work. This it deserves, not only from the fulness and completeness of the materials he has assembled, and the refined and scholarly judgment with which they are handled, but from the clear, the just, and the measured views which he takes on all the difficult problems connected with the Epistle. There is a wonderful charm too in his wider views, regarding the deep subjects treated of in the Epistle.”—The Church Quarterly Review, 1891

Westcott studied at Cambridge’s Trinity College from which he graduated in 1848. He stayed at Trinity, where, in 1849, he attained fellowship and was ordained as a deacon and priest. He received honorary degrees from Oxford (1881) and Edinburgh (1883). In 1890, he became bishop of Durham.

His Hebrews commentary is part of the 14-volume Classic Commentaries on the Greek New Testament. Enter to win this commentary set—worth $239.95—at our Free Book of Month page. And download your free book today!
