5 Ways to Use Logos 5′s New Timeline

The Timeline is a new Logos 5 tool of epic proportions, connecting you to the legacy of God and his people through the ages. Much more than a static list of events, it gives you new ways to interact with the books in your library.

Here are five ways to see the big picture using Timeline:

1. Connect your reading to a world of history 

Hundreds of books in your Logos 5 library are equipped with the Timeline visual filter, allowing you to connect your reading to the other major events in the era you’re reading about. (Example)

2.  Find your subject of study on the Timeline

Use the Timeline’s filter to cut out events irrelevant to your study. Or hit CTRL + F (PC) or CMD + F (Mac) to jump quickly to a person or event in history and see what’s happening around it. (Example)

3.  Get the Timeline to follow along with your reading

When you set the Timeline to the same linkset as a book with Timeline flags, the Timeline will move you as you scroll through your book, jumping from era to era. (Example)

4.  Branch out

Studying 1 Kings? Go to the Timeline and find the events of Solomon; if you find an event you want to know more about, jump into Bible Facts and find every person who was involved, find out where it took place, and see what biblical passages mention it. (Example)

5. Browse for fun—you never know what you’ll find!

As you scroll through the massive Timeline of Christian and world history, you’ll find events that link directly to articles and chapters from your library—works like Exploring Church History, 131 Christians Everyone Should Know, The New Bible Dictionary, Third Edition, and History of the Christian Churchmost of which already come in certain Logos 5 base packages. (Example)
