Comments

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

  2. Craig McAulay says:

    How do we win, I love Logos!

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

  4. I would use it on my commute.

  5. John Salmon says:

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

  7. Tommy Miller says:

    How do we enter?

  8. Michael LaRusch says:

    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 says:

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

  10. Study the Word

  11. …to annoy my kids.

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

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

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

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

  16. 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. 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 says:

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

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

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

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

  23. James Earl Wells says:

    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. Connecting at a deeper level through regularstudy.

  25. Ben McLain says:

    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 says:

    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 says:

    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 says:

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

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

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

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

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

  33. 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 says:

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

  35. 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 says:

    Looking forward to the upgrade

  37. Jeff Kunze says:

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

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

  39. Reading and studying on the go.

  40. Scott Michael says:

    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. 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. 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 says:

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

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

  47. S. Daniel Owens says:

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

  48. 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. 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 says:

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

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

  52. Dale Winters says:

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

  53. Phil schenck says:

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

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

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

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

  58. Adrian Tien says:

    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 says:

    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. 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 says:

    Very nice.

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

  63. Melinda Autry says:

    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 says:

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

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

  66. FrankToler says:

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

  68. I’d ditch my iPhone and have Logos everywhere.

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

  70. Mike Shrubsole says:

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

  71. Ockie Struwig (VDM) says:

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

  72. 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 says:

    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 says:

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

  75. 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. 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 says:

    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 says:

    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 says:

    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. As I have with iPad.

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

  82. J L Littlejohn says:

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

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

  84. Kyle Washington says:

    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. I can read and study everywhere

  86. Anthony Hamlin says:

    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 says:

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

  88. elias ayala says:

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

  89. This sounds awesome. Love having these resources portable

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

  91. Michael Roe says:

    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 says:

    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 says:

    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 says:

    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 says:

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

  100. Juan Sanchez says:

    I would use it with my family!

  101. Clark Pfaff says:

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

    • Jayson Bradley says:

      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!
