An example: At LogosTalk, we write and edit using a modified version of the Chicago Manual of Style, which is more than a thousand pages long. When I was getting into the field, I asked a veteran editor how on earth she remembered the whole thing. She explained that she didn’t—she was just really good at finding what she needed. It came down to 1.) having access to all that information and 2.) being able to navigate it quickly and accurately.
It’s the same with experts in lots of other fields. Translators don’t need to memorize every last word in the original language; they need to know the language overall (its syntax, its standard reference works) well enough to learn what new words mean. Software developers don’t need to know how to solve every single problem ahead of time; they need to understand new problems well enough to look for solutions, and they need to know where and how to look. The important thing isn’t knowing everything off the top of your head—it’s being smart and resourceful enough to find useful answers fast.
Logos 5 helps you learn
Last week, we discussed why a large library is so valuable: interconnected by Logos’ tagging and datasets, it constitutes a network that’s far richer than any standalone volume. The cool part is that Logos 5 doesn’t just change what you study—it changes how you study, too. Logos 5 sets you up to learn more, faster.
We’ve seen that the two key criteria to really high-level learning are 1.) how much information you have access to and 2.) how confidently and precisely you can navigate it. Logos 5 base packages address the first criterion through their wealth of resources. The largest base package, Portfolio, gives you more than 2,500 resources from experts in their field—that’s a treasure chest of potential knowledge, more books than you would read in decades’ worth of formal education. (You can browse the contents of all the base packages at Logos.com/Upgrade.) And the second? Logos 5 sets you up with study tools like the Timeline, Clause Search, Bible Facts, and the Bible Sense Lexicon, which connect you to context, precise search results, original-language nuance, and far more. You don’t have to sit down and read every book in your library—thanks to Logos’ tools, you can find useful new answers exactly when you need them.
Logos 5 gives you an enormous biblical and theological library. It gives you the means to find fast, accurate answers. It equips you to study like an expert.
Get Logos 5 at the best price
Right now, during the Logos 5 upgrade sale, you can save on Logos 5 in three ways:
- Bundling discounts: Base packages are already a superb deal—because they bundle so many resources, they let you build a library that would cost far, far more in print. (The print equivalent of Portfolio, for example, would cost around $78,000!)
- Dynamic Pricing: Logos.com looks at your current library and gives you a custom discount based on what you already own. Let’s say you own a commentary included in your new base package—you’ll get a lower price, because you’re only paying for the books that are new to you.
- Special upgrade discount: For a limited time, the upgrade sale gives you an extra way to save. Like Dynamic Pricing, this discount is based on what you already own; unlike Dynamic Pricing, it takes your whole library (tools, datasets) into account, not just your books. If you’re upgrading from Logos 5 Starter to Logos 5 Gold, for example, you’ll get a personalized upgrade discount—one in addition to what you’re saving with bundling discounts and Dynamic Pricing.
The upgrade sale won’t last forever, though—if you’re still on the fence, now’s the time to upgrade.
Get equipped to learn more, faster. Take advantage of all three discounts before the upgrade sale ends. See your custom upgrade discount right now!
P.S. Budgeting doesn’t have to hold you back from getting the library you really want. If you’d rather spread out the payments in easy-to-manage chunks—interest-free!—look into a simple payment plan. Why not lock in your upgrade savings while you can, make budgeting a little easier, and start exploring your new library today?
