Start a Free Trial of Our New & Improved Online Bible Software

What if the next time you opened your Bible, your commentaries flew off the shelf, opened to the right page, and settled down on the desk in front of you? What if you could just tap a word in your Bible, and instantly see the Greek or Hebrew word it translates? Then, seconds later, you’re looking at everywhere else that word is used in the Bible—all without leaving your favorite English translation.

If you’re at all familiar with Logos Bible Software, then you already know that this is exactly what it’s like to study with Logos. (Without the danger of flying books.)

With the new and improved Logos Cloud, that same level of in-depth Bible study is more accessible than ever. Monthly plans start as low as $8.99 a month, and you can get started for free—no commitment and no strings attached.

Here’s a rundown of what to expect with the new Logos Cloud, and why you should start your free trial today.
