Logos 5: Search for Bible Facts in a Biblical Passage

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.

Bible Facts, located in the Tools menu in Logos 5, helps us investigate the Bible’s people, places, things, and events. You’ve probably discovered that you can enter text in its reference box to generate a report on a person, place, thing, or event.

You can also enter a biblical reference!

For example, imagine you’re studying Exodus 14, and you’d like to get an overview of that chapter’s people, places, things, and major events. Here’s all you do:

  • Choose Tools | Bible Facts
  • Type Exodus 14 in the reference box (A)
  • Note the dropdown list that appears, with all the subject matter from that chapter (B)
  • Select an item in the list to generate a report on it

I don’t know about you, but I like not having to type much!

    This comment has nothing to do with the subject presented here. I have a question pertaining to my search for a Bible software that will provide a split screen format that displays the selected scripture as well as any applicable commentaries on the same page, and any reference scripture highlighted so that when clicked it will appear on the same page. I have seen just such a formatted software. Does Logos provide this feature?
