If you live in the St. Petersburg, Florida, area you might have opened up the paper last Saturday to see Logos’ own Scott Lindsey looking back at you. The paper’s religion section carried a very nice feature article on Scott’s presentation at a Worldview Weekend event in the Tampa Bay area.
One of my favorite quotes from the article illustrates a cool phenomenon—teens getting excited about using technology to study the Bible:
Lindsey said parents have been buying the software for their teenagers, who request it after they see the demos.”I stumbled upon a statistic that shocked me as a parent,” he said. “The article stated that by the time the age group that is right now between 14 and 18 graduates, more than 70 percent of what they will learn, they will learn electronically.”Today’s young people don’t view study as paper. They view study as electronic.”

Other Recent Press
Über-blogger and tireless reviewer Tim Challies posted a highly complimentary review of Logos Bible Software 3 on his website a couple of weeks ago. Tim’s review will also be printed in an upcoming issue of Journal of Modern Ministry, edited by Dr. Jay Adams.
The latest crop of reviews from Review of Biblical Literature included an informative look at our Works of Philo product.
The Fall 2006 issue of Kindred Spirit—a print magazine published by Dallas Theological Seminary that goes to approximately 30,000 alumni and “friends of the school”—included an excerpt from a review of Logos 3 authored by DTS prof Dr. Hall Harris and alumnus Matt Blackmon.
And, finally for now, the September-October issue of Preaching magazine featured their annual “Survey of the Year’s Best Software for Preachers.” My favorite bit from that review, authored by former Preaching managing editor and current seminary student Jon Kever:
I get asked regularly by users if it’s worth upgrading to version 3. My answer is always an emphatic “YES!” [Logos 3] does more, faster and better, and looks good doing it. It’s obvious that the developers listened to users and put the time and effort into creating a superior Bible study software library. [Logos 3] works the way you study. There’s no way I can include all that’s new and improved.
