Faithlife: Build a Community Wrapped Around the Word


Faithlife is where Christian community happens online. There’s no place quite like it for sharing life with other believers. You keep up with friends on Facebook. You manage your messages with email. If you have a band, you (might) still be on MySpace. Now there’s a place to connect with your church, your friends, and your school over what’s most important: God and his Word.

  • Create and join groups of friends, family, coworkers, and classmates.
  • Share your Logos resource notes with groups.
  • Share announcements, news, and events with your church groups.
  • Create study groups and share documents for your seminary classes.
  • Share notes on Bible verses with your groups through the Faithlife Study Bible.

And soon, you’ll be able to do much, much more.

Don’t Forget the FSB!

Faithlife is a community wrapped around the Word, so we’ve developed a study Bible for the community. The Faithlife Study Bible is ever growing, mobile-friendly, group-focused, and huge—it’s the largest study Bible in the world. The FSB is compatible with several different translations, it includes a built-in Bible dictionary, and it lets you share notes and reading plans with your Faithlife groups.

Best of all: you can get it free through 2014!

How to Subscribe to Logos RSS Feeds

Logos has several helpful RSS feeds that bring you our latest blogs, news, and product information. If you’re not sure how to use an RSS feed, this post will get you started.

RSS (Real Simple Syndication) is a quick and efficient way to get up-to-date information from multiple sources in a single place. It’s like having your favorite websites send updates directly to you.

Getting started with RSS is a simple, three-step process:

1. Find an RSS Reader That Works for You

If you want to read RSS feeds, you’re going to need an aggregator—a single program that compiles your feeds.

There are lots of choices out there, but it’s pretty easy to find online articles explaining the pros and cons of various programs. Many browsers integrate RSS readers, or you can even subscribe to RSS feeds in Microsoft Outlook. In my opinion, you can’t beat Google Reader:

  • It’s free.
  • It syncs with your Gmail account.
  • You can access it from any browser.
  • You can subscribe to any page (RSS feed or not).
  • There are a number of mobile apps.
  • It’s super easy to use.

Other popular aggregators include NewsCrawler, Bloglines, and NewsGator; if you’re a Mac user, you can also check out aggregators like Shrook or Cyndicate.

Don’t get bogged down in the myriad of choices; find a simple one that works for you and get started!

2. Find an RSS Feed and Subscribe

Keep your eye out for this symbol: . It lets you know that a website has an RSS feed. (You also see a small orange rectangle that says RSS or XML, but these are rare nowadays.) These buttons are typically links to a website’s feed. You may have noticed that certain browsers detect feeds automatically.

Subscribing is just a matter of copying a site’s RSS feed into your aggregator. Every RSS reader is a little different, so get to know the best way to subscribe to a feed with your reader. When you click on a site’s feed button, you will often get helpful instructions. Once you get the hang of it, it’s an easy process.

3. Read Your Feeds

Once you’ve subscribed to some feeds, your aggregator will automatically check for updates. There’s really nothing more you need to do! Log in and find a list of the newest information from your favorite websites in one place.

Don’t Miss These Logos RSS Feeds

Here are some Logos RSS feeds to get you started:

  • Logos Talk: Get the latest info on new projects and promotions, learn about Logos culture, find tips on using the software, and hear about upcoming features.
  • Pre-Pubs: Don’t miss out on all the newest Pre-Pubs.
  • Community Pricing: Keep up to date with new additions to the Community Pricing program.
  • Logos Press Releases: Stay on top of the latest Logos news.

If you aren’t an RSS user yet, you’ll love getting all of your favorite website updates compiled into one easy-to-navigate reader. Subscribe to our RSS feeds and get started now!

On the Road with Matt Chandler’s Explicit Gospel Tour

Scott Lindsey’s job is pretty cool. Since 2001, he has presented Logos Bible Software at more than 300 conferences, and worked with ministry leaders like Dr. David Jeremiah and Kay Arthur.

Recently Scott has been on the road with Matt Chandler and the Explicit Gospel Tour.

I talked to Scott this morning and mentioned that riding from state to state in a windowless bus didn’t look that appealing. Scott replied, “Yeah, I don’t envy the rock star lifestyle at all. It’s like being shaken around in a brown paper bag.” Turns out, high-profile ministry isn’t always so glamorous.

But Scott reminded me that exciting things are happening. Conferences like this give Logos an opportunity to partner with dynamic ministries.

On the Explicit Gospel Tour, Matt Chandler attests to the need for intimacy with God’s Word, and we get to come alongside and provide people the tools to build upon that foundation.

In the end, being able to equip people to grow in their understanding of God’s Word is worth a few days in a windowless bus.

If you can make it to Anderson, SC tonight, don’t miss an opportunity to see Logos presented and spend an evening with Matt Chandler! There are still a few seats left for the Explicit Gospel Tour at NewSpring Church; tickets are $15 at the door.

There are also tickets available for Saturday night’s Orlando, FL event!

Scott would love to see you there.

The Logos Academic Discount Program gives students and faculty access to thousands of resources at reduced prices. This gives students (and faculty) the freedom to pursue academic excellence with Logos’ advanced tools without worrying about the price tag.

Qualifying for the program is easy. You must be a student currently taking at least three credits or a full-time faculty or staff member at a Bible college, seminary, university, or a similar institution. Once your application is approved, you’ll have access to special savings through the Logos Academic Discount Program.

Need $1K for School? Apply for a Scholarship before It’s Too Late!

There’s a month left to enter our current Seminary Scholarship and Bible College Scholarship giveaway rounds. We’ll select this round’s winners May 10, and each will receive a $1,000 tuition scholarship and a copy of Scholar’s Library.

Kim K. of Lancaster, PA, is the latest recipient of our Seminary Scholarship. Here’s what she had to say after receiving the scholarship package:

“Thank you so very much for the abundant blessing of the scholarship and library! Both gifts will be put to great use for my remaining seminary studies.”

Apply Now

With one month until the next winner is selected, it’s not too late for you to apply. The application process takes less than 15 minutes. You’ll watch a brief video demonstration of Logos and then answer a few questions on the application page.

You only can enter once per giveaway period,  but encouraging your friends and family members to apply is like entering multiple times! That’s right—if they win and they entered your name in the “other” section, when asked, “How did you hear about the scholarship?”, then we will award you the $1,000 and a Scholar’s Library collection as well!
