Logos’ Christmas sale is here, and for just a little while, you can save 15% on a new base package. This is a great deal no matter what, but there’s a way to make it even better. For the best library and the best value, go with Portfolio.
What you’ll get:
1. The best books and features
Portfolio is simply massive—it’s by far the biggest base package we’ve ever produced. You’ll get 2,585 resources, which would cost you $78,000 in print; that’s 500-plus more resources than Diamond and 1,500-plus more than Gold.
But maybe you knew all that. Maybe you think Portfolio’s just so big that it wouldn’t be useful—after all, when would you find the time to read all those books?
If that’s you, here’s the thing: Portfolio’s books are what power its smart tools and features. In Logos, your books (which are exactly as valuable as their content) connect to other books, and thus to other content. Metcalfe’s Law states that the value of a telecommunications network is proportional to its number of users squared; networks like Logos behave the same way. As you build your library, your Logos resources become exponentially more valuable:
- Timeline events link to articles for further study. With Portfolio, you understand more context.
- Original-language words link to original-language tools. With Portfolio, you get more resources to appreciate Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic nuance.
- Commentaries link to Bibles link to dictionaries link to atlases. With Portfolio, you make more connections.
The takeaway: whether or not you read all the books cover to cover, choosing Portfolio sets you up with the biggest, smartest, best library.
2. The best value, by far
Base packages are a remarkable value: bundled, their contents are way cheaper than they would be purchased one by one. But figures like “print value of $78,000” don’t always make that clear, since print prices can vary pretty dramatically. So let’s keep the math rigorous: let’s look at base package savings vs. individual resources in Logos.
Turns out Portfolio’s such a good deal that, at Logos.com’s current prices, Portfolio’s 31 commentaries alone cost more than the entire 2,585-resource library. Still not convinced? Try picking up these 8 resources, all of which you’ll get in Portfolio:
- Sheffield/T&T Clark Bible Guides Collection (44 vols.): $849.95
- Second Temple Period Collection (19 vols.): $799.95
- The College Press NIV Commentary Series (40 vols.): $739.95
- Gnostic & Apocryphal Studies Collection (10 vols.): $649.95
- Hermeneutics Collection (12 vols.): $649.95
- Exegetical Summaries Series (24 vols.): $499.95
- Library of NT Studies: JSNTS on Paul (17 vols.): $449.98
- Charles Spurgeon Collection (86 vols.): $399.95
That’s already more expensive than Portfolio, and we’re still counting on our fingers—at this point, the rest of the library might as well be free! It’s simple: if you study lots of Logos books, you should look at Portfolio. And remember: if you already own something, you won’t pay for it twice—Dynamic Pricing gives you a special low price based on your current library.
Trouble is, Portfolio’s price tag can make it tough to work into your budget. That’s why we offer 12- or even 18-month payment plans. Choose Portfolio and an 18-month plan and you’re looking at payments of just $282—and that’s assuming you don’t already own even one resource in the base package! If you do, of course, your custom price will be even lower.
Why you should get Portfolio right now
OK: we’ve established that Portfolio is the biggest, smartest library. We’ve established that it’s far and away the best value. We’ve established that payments plans make budgeting easier. But you’re still on the fence.
Here’s why should get Portfolio right now:
1. For a limited time, you’ll save 15%
Logos’ Christmas sale is your chance to save 15% on a new base package, but it’s ending very soon.

Again, if you know you’ll be buying lots of Logos books, you should certainly look at Portfolio—and if you know you might eventually pick up Portfolio, why leave your 15% on the table?
2. You can customize your library with expanded bundles for 50% off
