Only Two Days Left—Upgrade Now!

We have offered a discount to upgrade to Logos 4 since we launched the platform in November, 2009. These discounts end Friday, September 30, at Midnight (PST). Find out what discounts you qualify for by going to our personalized Upgrade Discounter now!

Make the Switch to Logos 4!

If you have been waiting to make the switch to Logos 4, now is the time!

With Logos 4, we rebuilt our software from the ground up in order to provide you with the most advanced Bible study tools available. Logos is faster, more powerful, more intuitive, and more customizable than ever before.

When you upgrade to the award-winning Logos 4, you will get:

  • Up to hundreds of new resources added to your library for pennies on the dollar
  • Improved passage guides, word study guides, exegetical guides, reports, and search results
  • Powerful new tools, features, databases, and more
  • Syncing between home, office, mobile devices, and the web
  • The free Personal Books tool
  • An interest-free payment plan to help stay within your budget

When you upgrade to Logos 4, you can take advantage of having your library syncing across multiple platforms. Whether you are using a PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, Android, or any device with internet access, your resources are available wherever you are.

Logos 4 Users—Upgrade to a Higher Base Package!

This applies to Logos 4 users as well. If you have considered moving to a higher base package, time is almost up to save money on your upgrade!

If you act now, you can still save up to $630.00. Think about it, no matter which package you upgrade to, you are going to pay considerably less when you upgrade by September 30, 2011! And remember, the higher you upgrade, the deeper your discount.

In many instances, upgrading to the next level costs less than if you were to add just one or two of the individual collections you would get while upgrading. This is by far the most cost effective way to get more books.

Check out your personalize upgrade discount now!

Don’t Forget Our Payment Plans

Spread your upgrade payments out for up to 12 months with our interest-free payment plans.  If you are a student, a parent, or a pastor with a monthly book budget, payment plans can help you take advantage of our upgrade discounts while keeping your payments low.

Check out the what discounts are available to you now, then apply a payment plan at checkout to see how low your payments could be!

We don’t want you to regret letting this moment slip by. Compare contents and discounts side by side and get the one that’s right for you! If we can help answer any questions, please don’t hesitate to call us at (800) 875-6467 or (360) 527-1700. Just call us before the current deals expire!

Upgrade or Call Now!

The easiest way to get your discount is to upgrade on Logos.com, but if you’d prefer to call, don’t wait until the last moment to phone in. We expect a very high call volume over the next two days. Either way, take advantage of this special offer today!

Get Proclaim Free through the End of the Year!

We are excited to announce Proclaim will release a FREE beta version on October 11, 2011.  This new church presentation software is compatible with Logos 4, allowing you to easily send images and quotes over to your presentation. Sign up below to be notified as soon as it releases!

This release is going to change the way pastors, worship leaders, and other ministry partners put together a presentation. Not only will pastors be able send information and media directly from Logos 4 to a presentation, but worship leaders and others will be able to access a presentation throughout the week to add songs, backgrounds, and announcements. That’s right, multiple people can work from home or their church—or anywhere with internet access—on the same presentation.

Each presentation you create in Proclaim includes a unique “signal.” Signals” is a feature allowing you to send out interactive information to the mobile devices users in your church so they can follow along with the presentation. When creating or editing your presentation, Proclaim will tie a “Signal” to the slide as you select which content you would like to send to local mobile devices. You can send a Scripture, a quote, or even a donation request for mobile giving.

You can also sync with your CCLI SongSelect account to pull in lyrics with one button, without ever leaving the application. With engaging and easy-to-use features like this, Proclaim is sure to become the standard in church presentation software.

LIKE Proclaim on Facebook and it could be free through the rest of the year!

Not only will Proclaim be FREE when it releases initially, but you can get it FREE through the end of the year, if the Proclaim Facebook page reaches 11,000 fans by 11/11/11. Be sure to tell your ministry team, worship team, and fellow worship leaders to “Like” the page as well.

Click “Like” in the box below and help us reach 11,000 now!

Be Encouraged by Bible Study Magazine

For three years, Bible Study Magazine has been delivering an impressive array of tools for Bible study.

We’ve always featured cover articles on church leaders and biblical scholars with a focus on their interaction with Scripture. You will find it inspiring to read how Scripture enriches the lives of leaders like Josh McDowell, John Piper, Kay Arthur, and Mark Driscoll.

Subscribers to Bible Study Magazine enjoy powerful discussions with notable church figures, discussions which yield quotes like:

“Some of the happiest hours of my life have been sitting at the desk with a sheet of paper and the biblical text and thinking, ‘How does this text divide? What are its main themes? What’s going on here?’ You are looking into God’s workshop. God is in this text and you are actually seeing how the Holy Spirit worked; that’s just amazing.”—N. T. Wright

“I’ve done pretty much the same thing for the past 30 years—I have a morning Bible study time. What works best for me is to have one book in the Bible that I am reading, and I read until something strikes me. I don’t have any prescribed length to read—it could be a chapter or a few verses. When something strikes me, though, I’ll put a date in the margin of the page. . . . [I'll note why] that passage speaks to me. In all my Bibles for the past 30 years, you will see dates in the margins.”—Max Lucado

“I don’t memorize verses that don’t help my soul. I’m not into mechanical memorizing. I’m into fighting the fight of faith. I want to memorize Scripture so that I can defeat the devil at 3 o’clock in the afternoon—that’s why I memorize!”—John Piper

It is stimulating and empowering to note how these leaders and scholars regularly interact with the Scripture in their personal life, and an encouragement to do the same.

On the cover of the Sept–Oct ’11 issue of Bible Study Magazine, you’ll find Chuck Smith, founder of Calvary Chapel. He told us that Bible study is addicting: “The more you know, the more you hunger and thirst for knowledge of the Word. . . . Feed that, and watch the desire grow.” 

We at Bible Study Magazine couldn’t agree more.

Make sure to subscribe by September 30 to begin your subscription with Chuck Smith’s remarkable insight.

Join Bible Study Magazine on Facebook and tell us who you would choose to see featured in a future issue. Not on Facebook? Leave us a comment and tell us who you’d love to have on the cover of Bible Study Magazine.
