Look at your bookshelf. How many books are there? 10? 100? 1,000? Now imagine viewing the entire Portfolio base package library on bookshelves—all 2,585 books lined up, row after row.
You may stop and wonder why anyone would need so many books. Even the most avid scholar would struggle to read all those books cover to cover. Why would you ever want or need more books? Because books power Logos 5’s features.
For example, imagine you’re studying 1 Corinthians and you find that it was a letter written by Paul to the Corinthians in about 55 AD. You go to the Timeline feature and see that Paul was on his third missionary journey and that during this period Nero was reigning in Rome. You click the Timeline event and you’re brought to a passage in The Complete Book of When & Where in the Bible and throughout History.
See the flags? Each represents an event on the Timeline. Simply click a flag to see the event and what else was happening at that time. The more books in your Logos library, the more links you’ll see connecting the events and your books.
Features such as Timeline are enabled by books and datasets. This is because the books are tagged—and not just by algorithms, but by human intelligence.
When you buy a base package, you’re not simply getting shelves of books. You’re getting networked books that work together to help you see the Bible in a new way. And the more books you own, the more powerful your software becomes. When you upgrade to Logos 5, you also get an update to your existing books—they’ll work with Logos 5′s new features.
