    Reading plans, electronic bibles and background commentaries all help me connect at a deeper level.

  2. Craig McAulay November 20, 2012 at 10:26 am #

    How do we win, I love Logos!

  3. Brian November 20, 2012 at 10:29 am #

    Logos on Surface would mean always having resources right at hand–for study, for reading, and for teaching/preaching.

  4. Eric Weiss November 20, 2012 at 10:29 am #

    I would use it on my commute.

  5. John Salmon November 20, 2012 at 10:31 am #

    Currently use a hodgepodge of methods for study, would like to consolidate everything into a simple and direct single system. Also love the expanded ability for language analysis and realizing connections between different scriptures.

  6. Tobias Lampert November 20, 2012 at 10:55 am #

    I could definitely use a tablet with Logos 5 on it for some study on the go! :)

  7. Tommy Miller November 20, 2012 at 12:05 pm #

    How do we enter?

  8. Michael LaRusch November 20, 2012 at 12:15 pm #

    Logos 5 on a Surface tablet would help me to study scripture with the hopes of planting a new church in the very near future.

  9. Bob Wiegers November 20, 2012 at 12:17 pm #

    I would use it on my couch, mostly, which is a good spot to study the word.

  10. Ron November 20, 2012 at 12:20 pm #

    Study the Word

  11. Doc B November 20, 2012 at 12:23 pm #

    …to annoy my kids.

  12. Jackton Omukoko November 20, 2012 at 12:41 pm #

    I love this, quite admirable and i need this, it is the best tool to have.

  13. Wes November 20, 2012 at 12:49 pm #

    I would use this to teach my high school Bible classes!

  14. jackton omukoko November 20, 2012 at 12:54 pm #

    this is the best tool i need to enhance my Bible knowledge. .

  15. Levi November 20, 2012 at 12:57 pm #

    I would use this during small groups, when leading others, and for my study when a computer just isn’t practical.

  16. Andrew November 20, 2012 at 12:59 pm #

    The benefits of having such an interactive timeline and clause search from Logos 5 would greatly assist me in understanding the context of Scripture!

  17. Philip November 20, 2012 at 1:01 pm #

    I’m already looking forward to the Surface Pro when it comes out. Being able to use Logos 5 on it will make it even that much more useful for my studying.

  18. James Cross November 20, 2012 at 1:10 pm #

    I would use the new tablet to introduce my church members to the world of Logos.

  19. Jason November 20, 2012 at 1:16 pm #

    I’m headed to the Philippines and will have to say goodbye to the library I use. I need the portability of Logos 5 on the Surface.

  20. Geoffrey November 20, 2012 at 1:16 pm #

    It will nome handy for my studies in Bachelor of Theology next year.

  21. J Morris November 20, 2012 at 1:24 pm #

    I do not see instructions on how to enter the “drawing”….!

    • David Bayne November 20, 2012 at 2:07 pm #

      Me neither – and the Platinum plus Surface looks like a great combo!

  22. Daniel November 20, 2012 at 1:35 pm #

    Having a Surface with MS Office would help me have truly mobile capability.

  23. James Earl Wells November 20, 2012 at 2:02 pm #

    This would make my ability to teach much easier plus it will teach me about those places that I have had problems understanding. I want to enter this. I am disabled and work from home to help others receive the knowledge and word of God.

  24. Rick November 20, 2012 at 2:27 pm #

    Connecting at a deeper level through regularstudy.

  25. Ben McLain November 20, 2012 at 2:32 pm #

    I would love to use the Logos software and Windows Surface to dig ever deeper into God’s Word. As a seminary student I have only scratched the surface (no pun intended) of what God wants to show me.

  26. Charles Broadway November 20, 2012 at 2:41 pm #

    If I had a Microsoft Surface and Logos combination, I would be able to comfortably study in a more convenient environment. As it is, I am stuck behind an old desktop that is slow and unfortunately being stuck in one position gets tiring. With a MS Surface, the ability to move around to various locations would be golden for study and the combination with Logos would multiply that ten-fold. In addition to the benefits of personal Bible study, the combination would be an enormous aid for preparation in teaching of a Sunday School class and its implementation, and during group studies. I could even see the benefits of having it at my fingertips for presentations and even witnessing.

  27. Bonnie MacGillivray November 20, 2012 at 2:42 pm #

    My husband is a pastor so I would love to win this for him but I am having trouble getting the link to work. What should I do?

  28. Emerson Sangiorgio November 20, 2012 at 3:05 pm #

    O melhor software bíblico de todos os tempos e de todas as eras.

  29. jjh November 20, 2012 at 4:05 pm #

    It would come in handy on the bus commute, which is when I do the bulk of my time in the word.

  30. Grant Lea November 20, 2012 at 5:36 pm #

    I would use Logos 5 to prepare my sermons and then use the tablet to present them, what a combo!!!

  31. Dave B November 20, 2012 at 5:53 pm #

    I use logos everyday and the Surface would turn into my primary means of using logos!

  32. Michael November 20, 2012 at 6:24 pm #

    I would use it to increase my studies and sermon writing.

  33. Rob Krieg November 20, 2012 at 6:27 pm #

    It is hard to imagine having Logos 5 on a thin tablet with more books than my hardcover bible library at home, yet all indexed for immediate search results. Instead of a table full of opened books I’m taking this incredible library with its powerful searching and presentation capabilities anywhere I want. And it is smaller than a magazine! I absolutely love Hebrew & Greek word studies using Logos.

  34. Christopher November 20, 2012 at 6:39 pm #

    I could move from the kitchen (where the computer is) to a quieter place in order to concentrate better!

  35. Jacob November 20, 2012 at 6:46 pm #

    I would absolutely use it for preaching and teaching, for completing my seminary training, for church planting, and for book writing. Logos is amazing!

  36. Jeff Kunze November 20, 2012 at 7:04 pm #

    Looking forward to the upgrade

  37. Jeff Kunze November 20, 2012 at 7:07 pm #

    Would make Logos mobile since my current version is on my desktop

  38. Nelson D. November 20, 2012 at 7:10 pm #

    I would use it for Bible College, Sunday sermons, and personal study.

  39. Salvador November 20, 2012 at 7:19 pm #

    Reading and studying on the go.

  40. Scott Michael November 20, 2012 at 7:37 pm #

    I’m happy to see a tablet other than iPad promoted at Logos. But I’m puzzled. Is Logos 5 (for Windows 8 Pro) optimized for touch? If not, why promote the Surface? While Surface Pro (with a Core i5 processor) will run legacy applications well from the clasic desktop, classic menuing at worst is difficult to use with touch on a 10.6″ tablet screen such as the Surface’s, and at best fails to take advantage of the new Windows 8 interface (formerly “Metro”–which I’ve enjoyed on Windows Phone 7/7.5 for two years but has been ignored by Logos and others–perhaps understandbly given relative market share). I’ve used a Surface RT and the interface really blossoms there, but if I buy one (or even a Surface Pro), it will be despite the shortage of touch-optimized apps. So I hope this promotion betokens greater interest at Logos in all the new Windows 8 platforms, including touch-oriented tablets.

  41. Bill November 20, 2012 at 7:42 pm #

    The Surface tablet allows me to be silent but public witness to the word of God as I connect to all the incredible resources through Logos in the coffee shop, at work, in the airport, etc. I want people seeing me connect with God’ s word wherever I go.

  42. Rob November 20, 2012 at 9:58 pm #

    Logos 5 on a Windows 8 tablet will give me study time between commutes in the rural community that I live in.

  43. Roman Klusák November 21, 2012 at 1:34 am #

    I am student of Theology from Czech republic. I really like to use Logos on my computer, but it is impossible to study elsewhere. I will surely use the teblet, as everyone else to study.

  44. Joel November 21, 2012 at 2:00 am #

    Logos 5 would run very quickly on a Surface with its solid state hard drive and also Win 8 is a VERY fast OS. The combination would let me get my studies done faster and hence get lessons prepared quicker letting me devote more time to visitation. The portability of a Surface would mean I could more easily take a very advanced Biblical resource with me when out on the road.

  45. Victor November 21, 2012 at 2:24 am #

    While travelling or on the move. I can easily fire it up while I am away from my notebook.

  46. Michael November 21, 2012 at 3:09 am #

    A library in my “pocket”? Why wouldn’t I take it everywhere?!

  47. S. Daniel Owens November 21, 2012 at 5:15 am #

    I would use it in my studies and for my work.

  48. Thomas November 21, 2012 at 5:24 am #

    I’m hoping they’ll keep support for all platforms (iOS, Android, WinRt/Win8) to allow people the choice of hardware – while maintaining a consistent Logos experience via web, tablet, pc/laptop, or smartphone.

  49. Josh November 21, 2012 at 5:35 am #

    I would use it when we move to Latin America as missionaries. I could use it as a teaching tool or for personal study.

  50. Bobby Crotty November 21, 2012 at 5:38 am #

    I would use my tablet to take notes at church at for studying when I’m traveling.

  51. Luke November 21, 2012 at 6:50 am #

    I don’t know how it would “connect me to the world.” But I would love to have Logos 5!

  52. Dale Winters November 21, 2012 at 7:10 am #

    My laptops on the decline so a Surface would be awesome and an upgrade would be great as well.

  53. Phil schenck November 21, 2012 at 7:28 am #

    Logos rocks. I don’t have a laptop so this would be very handy.

  54. Dan November 21, 2012 at 8:14 am #

    I would use the software and tablet to study, write lessons, and papers.

  55. Mike November 21, 2012 at 8:45 am #

    The surface would be a great travel companion for reading and writing on the go.

  56. luca November 21, 2012 at 9:10 am #

    I’ve enjoyed logos software for years now, it has helped me tremendously to deepen my personal walk with the Lord and to be more effective in the church planting ministry that we are doing here in Italy. I would love to to win any of the logos 5 packages and use the tablet. It would allow me to use it on the trains travel I make and to prepare for the messages.
    Thank you guys for putting so much of your effort into this and for serving the Lord by serving us.
    God bless you

  57. Bruce November 21, 2012 at 9:19 am #

    I would use it for sermon prep and just reading from my growing Logos library.

  58. Adrian Tien November 21, 2012 at 10:04 am #

    While it is true that we depend on the Holy Spirit for unveiling God’s Word to us – Logos is a must-have for believers.

    Whether a new believer or even a seasoned preacher, the array of information at your finger tips (literally) and a click of a button will shave away much time you do on your own when flipping manual pages.

    This technology is a real God-sent. Be it used on ipad, iphone, any mobile or computer technology – once you use it, you get addicted to it!

    1. This will save a lot of money in purchasing theological references

    2. Will help for those of us who are no Greek/Hebrew scholars – it helps me to study the Bible in its original language (by the way, I am no geek)

    3. Adds a major touch of facts (history, cultural, geopolitics) of Bible times – so your faith is based on what the Bible heroes experienced in their time

    4. Saves alot of time. From hours to minutes – you are freed up to study more indepth!

    5. Consider this your ‘mobile bible school’ if you would

    6. I have experienced different software. Logos tops them all.

    7. How long does it take to learn Logos if you are no IT geek?You start clicking away & you are on your own

    8. Customer service support is awesome! I am based out of US, & living in Asia – that’s super important for me

  59. Bob Dennison November 21, 2012 at 10:11 am #

    Love using my logos 4 & would love logos 5 & the tablet. Between preaching at the church, studying at home, & teaching at a Christian school the portability would be hugely beneficial.
    Thanks logos for the software & for an opportunity to win one.

  60. Billy November 21, 2012 at 10:16 am #

    I would use it for my theological study & with my kids to read ebooks to them. We just found out we have serious mold poisoning from long term exposure to mold, and had to evacuate the house 35 days ago because of it. We lost around 500 of my theology books and over 2000+ children’s books because of mold contamination. It would be nice to go digital.

  61. Chris Culver November 21, 2012 at 10:40 am #

    Very nice.

  62. jason November 21, 2012 at 10:44 am #

    I would use it for my sermon/teaching prep as well as my own personal reading.

  63. Melinda Autry November 21, 2012 at 11:21 am #

    I would use amy Surface and Logos 5 to help me teach at Heritage Bible College in Dunn, NC. Also in my Children’s Ministry at Long Branch Church.

  64. David phillips November 21, 2012 at 12:09 pm #

    I’d use it for reading and writing in the library and note taking in class

  65. David November 21, 2012 at 12:15 pm #

    I am looking for the best Tablet software to boost my productivity.

  66. FrankToler November 21, 2012 at 1:07 pm #

    I would take the opportunity to not only read the Word more but I would also blog more about God’s movement in my own life through the more consistent time spent in His word.

  67. Jackie November 21, 2012 at 1:53 pm #

    It’d be great to have all my study tools with me, so that whenever I have spare time, I could digg in!

  68. Matt November 21, 2012 at 7:16 pm #

    I’d ditch my iPhone and have Logos everywhere.

  69. Steve Hereford November 22, 2012 at 3:23 am #

    I am a long time user. i believe Logos is the absolute best Bible study software available!

  70. Mike Shrubsole November 22, 2012 at 3:33 am #

    Your giveaway widgets never seem to work in Google Chrome, or perhaps I have some other problem with them?

  71. Ockie Struwig (VDM) November 22, 2012 at 4:11 am #

    Logos 5 – because God’s Word knows no boundaries!

  72. Thomas Zimmermann November 22, 2012 at 5:02 am #

    We are searching for a new tablet, and having a tablet with Logos on it would be absolutely awesome, especially when the library would be a little bit bigger ;-)

  73. Royal Hale November 22, 2012 at 6:23 am #

    This combination will be great for studying while traveling or at home when I don’t feel like siting in front of my PC but want to sit in my recliner.

  74. Tommy Miller November 22, 2012 at 6:04 pm #

    I dreamed of having a touch screen Bible and my library at the pulpit in the early 90s. Finally, a dream come true.

  75. Chuck November 23, 2012 at 7:13 am #

    my friends would benefit from being able to see all the great materials that logos provides me wherever and whenever I am with them. As good as the cell phone app is, it just doesn’t have the same impact as the larger screen does.

  76. Dave Gifford November 23, 2012 at 10:45 am #

    I would use Logos 5 in my missionary work in Mexico City, to aid me in teaching and course preparation, to aid me in the free Spanish materials I produce at http://www.giffmex.org/recursosgiffmex.html, and to read the Bible for my devotions on my iPad. I have been a fan of Logos since 1995 or 1996 when I bought “Logos library level 4″.

  77. Eric Joel Ortiz November 23, 2012 at 3:07 pm #

    I would use it in my sermon prep, small group study, and daily devotions so I can progress in my spiritual formation through proper interpretation and books as well as others that I serve.

  78. Kevin Moore November 23, 2012 at 11:17 pm #

    I facilitate a class at church called Bible Basics. It is a survey of each book of the Bible. In this class of Haverim, the participants are taught how to “hagah” the scriptures; to dig deeply into them and devour them as a lion would its prey. In fact, this class is why I purchased the Bronze level (being all I could afford), to allow God to mould me into a better teacher of His inspired word. When class is not in session, I frequently travel to Brazil to the middle of the Amazon River to a town called Anori. A tablet with a Logos package would enable me to tell the Riberhinos about the redemptive sacrifice of Christ on the cross and about a wonderful God.

  79. Adam Scheidegger November 24, 2012 at 9:52 pm #

    I would use the Surface tablet to try it out as I’m more familiar with iOS. I would love to see the new features in Logos 5 and use them to quickly find more data about subjects.

  80. Jake November 25, 2012 at 6:26 am #

    As I have with iPad.

  81. Phil November 25, 2012 at 7:29 am #

    I would use the Surface on the train to and from work and for classes as well.

  82. J L Littlejohn November 25, 2012 at 4:46 pm #

    I would use it to read and research in the field.

  83. Andrew November 26, 2012 at 2:00 pm #

    I would use the Surface to further disciple those around me.

  84. Kyle Washington November 27, 2012 at 5:06 am #

    The possibilities are endless! Doing a morning Bible Study on a Surface with Logos 5 would have so many advantages. I believe it would be more conducive to actual study time on the couch with a tablet and a cup of coffee than it would sitting at the computer with all of the distractions.

  85. YK November 27, 2012 at 6:54 am #

    I can read and study everywhere

  86. Anthony Hamlin November 28, 2012 at 7:55 am #

    I would use it to teach Bible study classes and to preach from. Not to mention everyday personal study of the Word. *Plus I could wow them down at the coffee shop on the functionality and profit of Bible study using Logos 5.* ;)

  87. Kurtis Bueltmann November 28, 2012 at 1:43 pm #

    Logos makes it easier for me to travel with my theological library.

  88. elias ayala November 28, 2012 at 3:33 pm #

    I would use this to help me in my MDiv and preaching.

  89. shelley November 28, 2012 at 3:52 pm #

    This sounds awesome. Love having these resources portable

  90. Old Sarge November 28, 2012 at 7:28 pm #

    I would certainly benefit from the software and tablet! Thanks for offering such prizes!

  91. Michael Roe November 29, 2012 at 7:18 am #

    If I won a base package lower than my current Logos 4 gold I would give it to one of the elders in my church as a resource. If I won the platinum version with the Microsoft Surface tablet, that would be useful for study and sermon preparation outside of the office, while on break at work, etc.

  92. Isaac Pettersen November 29, 2012 at 8:37 am #

    I am a student at a seminary in Little Rock Arkansas so I use logos 4 on a daily basis and it really couldn’t make life any easier. I honestly don’t know if I would be doing as good as I am in school without. Though being a college student I can’t afford the upgrade to Logos 5 so winning this would be an answer to prayer. Especially the tablet because then I could take Logos everywhere, even when I’m preaching

  93. Darrell Adkins December 4, 2012 at 7:36 am #

    I have for years, sought to find better ways to study. The Platinum version is great the Porfolio is better. I have never been able to afford either one. LORD willing HE will provide a way where there seems to be no way.

  94. Chris DuBose December 5, 2012 at 7:32 am #

    I am finishing my first semester of my M.Div. program and would benefit from the added resources for my studies and ministry.

  95. Dwayne Justice December 5, 2012 at 9:14 am #

    I have been using these software programs since they were using the name Libronix. The software has come in very handy since I am currently working on my bachelors in Christian ministries. I am currently using Logos 4. I would love to have version 5 but it just isn’t in the budget right now. Winning Logos 5, especially with a tablet, would be the most awesome thing ever! So, what do we need to do and try to win this prize?

  96. Jonah December 5, 2012 at 12:51 pm #

    If I won the Microsoft Surface Pro with Logos Platinum, I wouldn’t be able to just take the Bible with me… No I could take the Bible AND my Christian home school curriculum with me too! I use Switched On Schoolhouse which would run great on the Microsoft Surface Pro tablet! Anytime I’m doing “Bible: Old Testament Survey” and it asks me to look up a verse, I just open Logos Bible Software! It would be amazing! Plus, I love the timelines that are in Logos 5, they would really help for finding out information about the Bible!

  97. Eustace December 7, 2012 at 2:48 pm #

    I would be able to have my study resources all in one place. I could preach from the tablet, pull up maps/graphs onscreen during sermons, and it would help lighten the load on my back in regards to seminary, lol.

  98. Vincent December 9, 2012 at 11:26 pm #

    As a pastor, I’d be able to bring my full library to visitations on the Surface Pro. We are connected better in the Word when we are with His body, the church, they who believe in Him, Logos, our Lord, Jesus Christ. Whether in hospital, home, or at the coffee shop, it is delightful to fellowship in the Word, but to let them read for themselves, in an accessible and handy tool. That’s how I’d use Logos 5 and Surface Pro.

  99. Erica December 10, 2012 at 12:25 am #

    I’d used it with my husband, as we grow closer studying together God’s good news.

  100. Juan Sanchez December 10, 2012 at 10:53 am #

    I would use it with my family!

  101. Clark Pfaff March 31, 2013 at 4:57 pm #

    You advertised it on “3/31 on the bible but this ad says its closed

    • Jayson Bradley April 1, 2013 at 4:19 pm #

      Thanks for your comment Clark. I don’t know how you ended up on this blog post, but to find what we advertised on the Bible series head to Win.Logos.com. Thanks!
