New Resources for Logos 3

We made a mistake.

We stopped making Logos 3 / Libronix editions of new resources on January 1, but we neglected to give any advance warning about this change, and it surprised some of our users.

I am sorry; it was my fault. I authorized the change in process but didn’t think about the need to communicate the change to all of you with plenty of advance notice.

We’re going to make it right. We’re going back and creating Logos 3 editions of resources we’ve already shipped in 2012, and we will continue to make Logos 3 editions of new releases through March (except where a resource requires Logos 4-specific functionality).

New products released after March, 2012 will only be made available for Logos 4.

April will be two years and five months after the release of Logos 4, and more than 11 years after the first release of the Libronix platform used by Logos 3. We’re flattered that some users still like Logos 3 and find it useful. And the good news is that it still runs, and should for the foreseeable future. Installing Logos 4 doesn’t disable Logos 3, and we’re not retroactively removing anything.

Logos 3 / Libronix support articles have moved to an archive on Logos.com, to avoid confusing the majority of our user base which only uses Logos 4. Post-purchase email download instructions will continue to reference Logos 3 until March 31, and existing Logos 3 ebook files will still be available online through the “Orders” tab of your Logos.com/MyAccount page.

We want to be efficient in our use of resources; building new products for the old platform takes time and money we’d rather put into forward-looking development.

But we understand that some users had placed pre-orders or made purchases with the expectation that they could use those resources with Logos 3, and we want to honor that expectation.

New content released since January 1, including Pre-Pubs, will be available for you Friday, January 27. You can unlock and download these files from the “Orders” tab in your account after next Friday.

I apologize for any confusion and frustration we have caused you.

President, Logos Bible Software

We’re always working hard to bring new titles to the Logos library—from the latest books by top publishers and best-selling authors to tried-and-true classics. But with the sheer number of titles going up each week, it can be difficult to stay up-to-date.

That’s why we’ve created two new email subscriptions to notify you when the latest works become available on Pre-Publication and Community Pricing. Whenever a new title is available for Logos, you’ll be the first to know. This ensures that you’ll never miss the chance to get a classic on Community Pricing for up to 95% off or to snag a new title on Pre-Publication at a steep discount!

Signing up for these notification lists is easy:

  1. Go to the account details page on Logos.com
  2. Click on the Notifications tab
  3. Scroll down and select the boxes next to Pre-Publication and Community Pricing

That’s it! Now you’re all set to get updates on the latest titles to add to your digital library.

Get a Free Book Every Month in 2012

Would you like to get a free book every month throughout 2012? We thought so! That’s why we put together the Free Book of the Month. Each book is part of a larger collection, and every month you can enter to win that collection, too!

January’s Free Book of the Month is John Owen’s Temptation and Sin. This book contains:

  • On the Mortification of Sin
  • On Temptation
  • On Indwelling Sin in Believers
  • Exposition of Psalm 130

Temptation and Sin is more than a fanciful book on behavior modification; this is a powerful resource for anyone looking  to understand and battle sin. Theologian J. I. Packer has admitted to owing more to John Owen than to any other theologian—and owing “more to On Mortification of Sin than to anything else he wrote.”

Not only can you pick up your free copy of Temptation and Sin, you can enter to win the 24-volume Works of John Owen! Just head over to the Free Book of the Month page to download your free book and enter the giveaway!

Use Proclaim Free through February!

When Logos launched Proclaim Church Presentation Software’s free beta version in October, pastors, worship leaders, and other ministry partners were excited by Proclaim’s sleek presentations, collaborative, cloud-based interface, and other game-changing features. As of January 2012, Proclaim is out of beta and the full version is ready to go.

Due to the overwhelming response to Proclaim last year, we are extending the free trial period to give your team a chance to run the full version of Proclaim during their worship services.

Proclaim will continue to be free through the end of January, but getting it free through February is easy (more details below). Of course, you are able to purchase your On Air license anytime (monthly or yearly) and it will begin once this free trial period is over.

How It Works

Extending your free Proclaim On Air license through February is a simple three-step process:

  1. Go On Air and take a picture of Proclaim being used during your weekend service.
  2. Post your picture on Proclaim’s Facebook page. (You will need to “Like” the Proclaim Facebook page before you can do this.)
  3. Tag your worship team members and Proclaim Church Presentation Software.

It’s that easy!

If You Haven’t Tried Proclaim

Proclaim’s cloud-based presentation is changing the way pastors, worship leaders, and other ministry partners put together a service. With presentations available online, every member of your team can access and edit the presentation throughout the week from anywhere with an internet connection.

Go to ProclaimOnline.com for information, screenshots, and to download Proclaim.

So enjoy Proclaim for free this January. We’ll keep an eye out for your post and look forward to extending your free On Air license through February.

Let’s Talk! Call Us for a Custom Deal.

We need to talk.

I don’t know exactly how to say this other than “we can’t figure it out,” but the truth is, with over 17,000 titles, thousands of different publisher licenses/price-points/royalties/geographical restrictions, and hundreds of thousands of unique customer purchase histories, collections, and libraries, we just can’t figure out how to make a one-size-fits-all Christmas sale any longer.

We have certainly been trying, as you can see by how many deals we have going on right now but we know that some of our best customers still feel left out in the cold.

So I’ll say it again. “We need to have a talk. . .” 

No, not a text, email, live-chat, Tweet or Facebook message. . . I mean a “real” talk.

Let’s connect in real time.

If you feel passed over by all our Christmas Specials this year, let’s connect in real time as human beings and pick up a phone for a real conversation where we can learn from each other, discuss how to go deeper in Bible study, and enjoy the pleasure of each other’s company while we serve you and give you the full attention and personalized service you deserve.

We will treat you as an individual and go over your specific account details, purchase history, and product interests to create a Christmas special that is custom-made for you.

This call is not for everyone.

It is a real conversation designed to discover how we can serve you better. There is no set list of offers or products to tell you about—we’ve already given that list out—that’s what the web is for. If you are looking for a discounted shopping list, or just want to know everything we have on sale, carefully look over all the published Christmas Sales that are still available here.

The phone conversation is a two way “conversation,” to see how we can serve you better with a custom special. 

There you have it, we want to serve you. It is as simple as that. Give us a call at 800-875-6467 and we will take care of you. We’ll work with you to create a custom deal for you, and we’ll even count all your purchases made before January 2, 2012 toward the Christmas Credit promotion.

We have backgrounds like you.

When you call a Logos representative, you are not being passed off to a call center 20,000 miles away from us. All our representatives are right here at our headquarters in Bellingham, WA and have backgrounds like many of you. Among our representatives we have a wide variety of life experiences and jobs—everything from pastors, worship leaders, engineers, small group directors, exercise equipment salesmen, news reporters, youth leaders, marketing reps, police officers, graphic designers, children’s ministry leaders, manufacturers, travel agents, teachers, homebuilders, pulpit supply preachers, waiters, legal consultants, basketball coaches, Bible college students, restaurant managers, young adults pastors, real estate agents, missionaries jailed for preaching the Gospel, pastoral care pastors, women’s ministry leaders. . . and more.

And if you need to talk to someone who understands your history with Logos better, we even have reps that have been here as long as eighteen years! 

The mad rush of pre-Christmas shopping is over, the office is quiet and peaceful, and our well-trained, experienced and knowledgeable representatives are ready, willing, and able to serve you now.

Please call us so we may serve you today:

  • USA & Canada: 800-875-6467
  • UK Discounted: 0871-218-1700
  • International: (360) 527-1700

If you won’t be able to reach us during this last week of 2011, or you live overseas and timing or costs don’t permit you to make the call, please send an email to sales@logos.com with the details you would have liked to have discussed in our conversation, and we will see what we can do through email.

So let’s talk. Pick up the phone and give us a call.
