lexham-bible-guides-pauls-letters-collectionOur introductory sale on the complete Lexham Bible Guides: Paul’s Letters Collection is coming to a close. Now is the perfect time to jump-start your research: you have just a few days left to get the whole collection for $100.00 off!

A quick recap

Lexham Bible Guide: Romans shipped on July 16, completing this 13-volume collection. The Romans volume is the largest and most complex Bible guide we’ve ever created: it’s over 650 typeset pages long and includes thousands of links to the Logos library. Each page is filled with carefully curated research, enabling you to study Romans from a multitude of scholarly perspectives.

Last week, we gave some context to the phrase “time is money,” using the Bible guides as an example. In terms of time saved, a pastor using a single Bible guide from this collection could save up to $130.00 per week. If you’re a seminary student, just think how much faster your writing will go when you use these Bible guides to maximize your research time.

Why people love it

We’ve been able to get the Lexham Bible Guides into the hands of a few reviewers, and here’s what they’re saying:

“This series does a very fine job of introducing interested persons to many of the letters of Paul and divulging to them just some of the treasures contained therein. . . . It is useful, in my view, not only for beginning students of the Bible but for those wishing to introduce various biblical texts to Sunday School classes, Bible study groups, and small group discussions.”
—Jim West, pastor of Petros Baptist Church, professor of biblical studies at Quartz Hill School of Theology, and blogger at Zwinglius Redivivus

“It is vitally important that anybody who seeks to understand the meaning of a text wrestles with an array of ‘camps’ or ‘voices.’ Thanks to the Lexham Bible Guides, in a matter of mere minutes, you are able to survey multiple highly respected theologians for their take on an issue.”
—Jason Brueckner, blogger at The Brave Reviews

“If you want to know how effective Logos Bible Software is, this is one of the most dynamic ways of finding out. . . . This is more than a sophisticated search.”
—Joel Watts, blogger at Unsettled Christianity

Why You Haven’t Upgraded: 8 Questions Answered

SocialShare_612x612_4Logos 5 has been our most popular version ever, and thousands of customers have made the jump to the new software. But now, after August 5, upgrade discounts are ending.

Of course, it’s natural to have a lot of questions about upgrading your base package. It’s a big investment—both economically and educationally. We’ve heard questions as simple as “Which upgrade should I get?” and as complicated as “What dataset can help me find every place in the Bible where Jesus declares that he loves someone?

Since upgrade discounts are ending very soon, we wanted to address several important questions that you’ve maybe been wondering about. If, at any point while you’re reading this post, you want to upgrade, go to Logos.com/Upgrade to get your custom discount.

Let’s get started:

1: Is now really the best time to upgrade?

Short answer: yes. When we launched Logos 5, thousands of people were excited to get the new features and resources, and quickly upgraded to the new software. But, like me, many wanted to see how well Logos 5 performed before making the leap to the next level. Now, more than a year after launch, Logos 5 is our most acclaimed version ever!

Act quickly—the Logos 5 upgrade sale discounts are coming to an end. Upgrade discounts end August 5!

2: What does a dataset really do?

The secret sauce behind Logos 5 is Logos’ new datasets. If you’re using a previous version of Logos (or the free Logos 5 engine), you’re missing out on these powerful tools. Datasets make studying the Bible both quicker and more interactive.

Let’s say you’re doing a search in the Bible for how many times Jesus heals. Traditionally, you’d have to do several individual searches to get this information, and you’d miss every time Jesus is mentioned by a pseudonym like teacher, him, or rabbi. With Logos 5′s Clause Search, though, you can find answers in a matter of seconds. Imagine what types of study you could do, and what you could do with the time you save!

Take a look at the rest of Logos 5′s datasets and features to see how they could improve the way you study, teach, and share information about the Bible.

3: Do I really need more books?

Before you upgrade to a larger library, you might have questions. “I already have the books I want; why would I get more?” “What’s the point of having more resources?” Having more books isn’t necessarily about the books you use every time; it’s about the power of a networked library of resources.

More books means more connections between your books. You’ll find authors who share your same understanding, and you’ll also find authors with completely different views. You’ll benefit from resources that make your datasets more powerful, and you’ll understand more with illustrations that show the text from new angles.

In the end, more books equals more learning.

4: Am I going to lose the books I already own?

You’ve purchased several resources in Logos. Maybe you even own a previous base package. Will you lose your resources when you upgrade?

Definitely not!

When you buy a book in Logos, you buy the license to that book, and the license is yours forever. That means that when you upgrade to Logos 5, you keep everything you already own.

In fact, you’ll even get a custom discount based on your current library. That way you never pay for the same book twice.

5: I got the free update to Logos 5; isn’t that the same thing as an upgrade?

This is one of the most common questions about Logos 5. The answer is important: there’s a big difference between getting the free update and upgrading to Logos 5.

The free update is just the engine, without any resources or datasets—it’s missing all the tools that make Logos 5 powerful. You won’t have access to things like the Timeline or Clause Search, and you’ll miss out on the key resources that connect these datasets.

When you upgrade, you get the full experience. In a lot of ways, Logos 5 is like a car. If you don’t have fuel in the engine, the car won’t do what it’s intended. You can think of Logos 5′s datasets and resources as that fuel. Without them, you’re not using Logos to its full potential.

6: Which upgrade should I get?

Selecting the right upgrade can be tough. There are many levels of base packages, and you might have a very specific type of study you want to do. Which dataset would you benefit from most? Which resources would be best for your small group? What if you’re a pastor—which base package is best?

Our Logos 5 specialists want to hear these questions, help you pick the package that’s best for you, and get you the best possible deal on an upgrade. Call them today at 888-875-9491!

7: What if I don’t like the resource selection in an upgrade?

You understand the value of having a larger library, but maybe, despite the large savings, the resources in a given upgrade aren’t exactly what you’re looking for. Good news—you now have more options to choose from!

Over the past four months, we’ve released Reformed, Anglican, Lutheran, and Seventh-day Adventist base packages! Each gives you Logos 5′s main datasets, along with a resource selection built specifically for your tradition of choice.

Hurry: these tradition-specific base packages are 15% off for a limited time. Discounts end August 5!

8: What do I do if I have more questions?

If you still have questions, don’t worry! Our Logos 5 specialists are waiting to hear from you, and they’ll answer any questions you have about upgrading.

Give them a call right now at 888-875-9491, and get the upgrade that’s right for you!

Remember, discounts end after August 5! Go to Logos.com/Upgrade today to lock in your upgrade discount.

Pre-order the Ancient Christian Writers Bundle for $180 Off!

AncientChristian_collectionCoverThe Ancient Christian Writers Bundle is available now for pre-order from Logos—get it for 20% off!

An important library addition

With 65 volumes and almost 20,000 pages, Ancient Christian Writers is one of the premier modern English-language collections of early Christian writings. All together, these books would cost you between $1,500.00 and $2,000.00 in print, but if you pre-order them from Logos, you can get the entire set for less than half that price.

If you already own the Early Church Fathers or Fathers of the Church series, Ancient Christian Writers forms an important complement. It contains a number of important writings not available in the other sets. You’ll get Origen’s Exhortation to Martyrdom and his influential commentary and homilies on the Song of Songs, Jerome’s Commentary on Ecclesiastes, and John Chrysostom’s Baptismal Instructions, along with writings of Paulinus of Nola, Prosper of Aquitaine, Theodoret of Cyrus, and others.

Ancient wisdom, modern translation

Even where there is overlap, you can use Logos to easily compare the translations side by side. The study of the early church is a developing and sometimes contentious field, so the differences in translation and interpretation between editions can be as eye-opening as comparing different translations of Scripture.

Ancient Christian Writers gives you the wisdom of the early church with modern translations and scholarship. Logos makes that wisdom instantly accessible and searchable and connects it to the broader history of the church and development of theology.
