Logos 4: Instant Information

mp|seminars Tips

Today’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos training seminars.

As you know, we live in an instant world: instant coffee, instant oatmeal, instant potatoes! Sometimes, even as we study the Bible, we need instant information. We need a quick definition, a pronunciation of a Greek word, a few cross references and the like. Well, Logos is here to help:

  • Open an English Bible such as the ESV to a specific passage like Acts 17.16
  • Choose the Tools menu
  • Select Information
  • By default the Information panelopens on the right hand side of the screen

Now rest your cursor on a word like Athens. Notice the data in the Information panel. Now move to the word provoked. More instant information! This panel is available to you wherever you are in the Bible offering previews oftremendous amounts of research. When you need to dig deeper, just click one of the links in the Information panel.


  1. This is one great feature! I love it, the only thing is that you have to make sure your mouse doesn’t go crazy floating on too many words at the same time or else the information pane will be going crazy trying to catch up…LOL…that’s all!

  2. This is even better if you leave Logos up and running and have priorities set.

    Thank you again.

    Thank you for your faithful service to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. You make it possible for bi-vocationals like me to prepare a message that is so much better than it would be otherwise. Thank you!
