It’s 2018. Where’s Your Bible?

You want to grow closer to God this year, and you know Bible reading is a big part of that. But where to start?

We have a few suggestions, starting with the new version of a favorite app. We’ll also introduce you to a bundle of new (and free) resources.

A fresh way to browse

Begin with the popular new Logos mobile app, now with tabbed browsing. This new feature makes it easier than ever to switch between Bibles, commentaries, and more. With a single tap or swipe you’ll switch effortlessly between all your open resources.

As one excited user put it, “Wow wow. Love this update!”

We do, too! So if you haven’t already, use this tool to dive into a deeper Bible reading habit this year. And that’s just the beginning.

Get the mobile app today.

It’s all in the bundle

In addition to the mobile app, we recommend downloading a new bundle containing the Christian Standard Bible, Logos 7 Basic, and a helpful devotional from one of America’s leading Bible scholars.

The CSB is a new translation from a team of more than 100 scholars representing 17 denominations. It’s easy to read without sacrificing accuracy, and it’s yours free through Jan. 12.

Logos 7 Basic helps you turn Bible reading into Bible study. Its feature-rich mobile version keeps your notes, highlights, library, and preferences completely in sync. There’s no better way to keep your study going when you leave home or office. And yes, it’s also free.

Finally, you’re sure to enjoy the devotional from D.A. Carson (co-founder of the Gospel Coalition). For the Love of God helps you read through the Bible in a year, with rich insights on the unity of Scripture. And once again, it costs you nothing.

Bible, Bible software, devotional—it all comes together this year. So get a fresh start—and keep your wallet in your pocket.

Download these free resources now.

  • I dislike the fact that devotionals no longer go to the proper day automatically.
    Also when I select a day in a devotional sometimes it is a different day.
    If tabbed browsing means the other features I used no longer work. I consider it more of a problem than a useful tool.

    • Thanks for your feedback, Steven. The updates to the interface should not affect any functionality; devotionals should still open to the correct day. One caveat, which has always been the case, is that the resource must be a “calendar devotional,” which supports dates. Try it again with Connect the Testaments, or another devotional that you are sure has dates in the reference box. If it still doesn’t work, the best way to fix a problem on the mobile app is usually to reinstall from the app store.

  • The new user interface is really a big improvement, and I’m glad for the change. BUT, in my Kindle Fire 8 as well as my LG G5, I get the same behavior – if I try using the “Favorites” to save a verse to quickly refer back to, when I tap on that saved Favorite, Logos crashes, and I start all over again. That’s a pretty useless and unwelcome feature to say the least. Another feature, syncing tabs doesn’t sync too closely, and so when I switch tabs, I still have some swiping to catch up the version that I’m wanting to view. Tighten up the tab synchronization, please?
    Finally, after more than 2 tabs are in use, when I leave my commentary (Pillar – Acts) it looses its place, and so then I have huge bit of swiping to bring the commentary back to where I was reading. This is not fun either…
    I mention these in a public setting because thus far, mentioning them directly has not been effective. Perhaps the dev team can address these deficiencies?
