As we get closer to releasing Proclaim, we’re already working to make the most intuitive church presentation software even better! Of course, one of the keys to doing this is getting insights straight from worship leaders themselves.
If you’re a worship leader, please take this quick survey. Not only will you help make a great tool better, you’ll also be able to try Proclaim free for a month.
As an added incentive, one worship leader who responds will win a year of Proclaim for their church—absolutely free!
If you’re not a worship leader, make sure you tell your worship team or pastor about this opportunity. They don’t want to miss this opportunity to help shape the future of church presentation software, and they’ll be blown away when they experience what Proclaim can do for their worship services! Share this post with any worship leaders you know by tweeting it, “Liking” it, or sending them the link in a quick email.
Take the survey, then leave us a comment and let us know what excites you most about Proclaim Church Presentation Software!

Tomorrow is the last day to enter Vyrso’s iPad 2 Giveaway. If you haven’t entered yet, now is your chance. The giveaway ends Thursday, June 30th at 11pm, Pacific Time.
What is Vyrso?
With Vyrso, you’ll find books by bestselling authors like Donald Miller, Dave Ramsey, Ted Dekker, and more. Whether you like to lose yourself in a mystery, kick back with a comedy, or dive deep into a biography, Vyrso is your Christian ebook store.
Within the publishing world, books can generally be divided into one of two categories: reference books and trade books. Reference books include things like commentaries, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and other academic works. You can put almost everything else—novels, popular non-fiction, and children’s books—into the trade book category.
For nearly twenty years—long before the ebook boom—Logos has been bringing you the best in electronic reference books. With Vyrso, Logos is bringing that experience and expertise to trade books.
Vyrso helps you find, buy, and read your favorite Christian books. The Vyrso store will offer your favorite bestselling and classic Christian books, and you can use the Vyrso reader on iPad, iPhone, and (soon!) Android devices.
(Vyrso titles also work in Logos Bible Software 4, and you’ll be able to read all your Logos 4 titles in the Vyrso reader, too!)
To get a picture of what’s to come, check out these 25 bestsellers and start reading them with the Vyrso app today. For a limited time, all ebooks are at least 50% percent off!
A new version of Logos Bible Software began shipping yesterday. Version 4.2a is an update available for both Windows and Mac.
How Do You Get It?
If you have automatic updating enabled (PC screenshot | Mac screenshot), which is the default setting, Logos 4 should notify you that updates are ready to be installed. When you see the balloon tooltip window, right-click on the Logos icon in your system tray and choose to “Install update” (PC screenshot).
AppShouter.com called it “by far one of the best free Bible apps to hit the App Store.” A writer for the Unofficial Apple Weblog lamented that he didn’t have it when he read through the Bible in a year.
A new version of Logos Bible Software for Windows began shipping on Monday, December 6. Version 4.2 is the sixth major update since we launched Logos 4 last year. Like all previous updates, version 4.2 is a free download for all Logos 4 Windows users.
How Do You Get It?
If you have automatic updating enabled (screenshot), which is the default setting, Logos 4 will notify you that updates are ready to be installed. When you see the balloon tooltip window, right-click on the Logos icon in your system tray and choose to “Install update” (screenshot). If Logos 4 hasn’t downloaded the update by the end of the day, type Update Now into the Command Bar (screenshot). This will force Logos 4 to check for any available updates (screenshot) and begin downloading them.
If you haven’t downloaded the Logos Bible Software iPhone app, what are you waiting for? It is not only an absolutely free mobile solution for your Bible study needs and an incredible complement to your Logos base package* (giving you access to many of your resources wherever you are), it also gives you free previews of entire Christian books right there on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch.
With FreeBookPreview.com you can examine a book as closely as you want for the preview period. It’s sort of like going to your local bookstore and getting an entire week to really peruse a book before you buy it (except you get to take the text with you, wherever you go). Then—when you love it—you can purchase a print edition right there from the app, or sometimes even add it to your Logos Bible Software resources.
