Hi there.

Would you take a minute to tell me about yourself?

My name is Matt, and I oversee the Logos Talk blog. I’ve designed a short survey to get a better feel for who you are and what you enjoy reading, and I’ll use the results to make this blog more relevant to you.

Would you take a brief moment to answer some questions? All questions are optional, so you can skip any if you are in a rush.

Take the survey

Thanks for your time,
Matt

If the survey appears odd below, take the survey in a better view.

I Already Have Logos. Is Upgrading Just Buying It Again?

If you’ve invested in previous versions of Logos, you may look at Logos 8 and think, “Why would I pay for something I already have?”

The short answer is, you wouldn’t. And you won’t.

This post is about Dynamic Pricing, and why it means:

  1. You never pay for Logos features and resources you already own
  2. Upgrading to Logos 8 will cost less than you may think

Preparing Sermons with the New Workflows Feature

If you’re writing expository sermons, it means you’ve developed skills for serious Bible study.

And not only that, you’ve developed skills for sharing the wealth you discover with others.

As you know, that process takes a lot of time, demands many steps, and requires a number of resources. How can you tighten it up without skipping the steps you know you need to take for an accurate, thorough, transformative sermon? [Read more…]

Everything You Need to Know about Notes in Logos 8

Notes is where you store your insights. It’s how you capture that important observation, powerful quote, or memorable illustration in Logos so you can return to it later.

Logos 8 brings new and powerful changes to Notes, making it easier than ever to capture, organize, find, and share your insights.

As Logos user Mark Barnes said, “The new notes tool in Logos 8 makes all my existing notes and highlighting immensely more useful, as I can now find and read my old notes—on any subject—in a matter of seconds.[Read more…]

How to Get a Great Deal on All the Features of Logos 8

Logos 8 launched last week and with it awesome features like Workflows, Canvas, the Theology Guide, and more.

While many Logos users have already chosen to get a complete upgrade (new features and new books), another popular option is the feature upgrade.

With a feature upgrade, you upgrade your software with new features without adding new books to your library, and you get a custom price that ensures you only pay for what’s new to you.

Learn about all feature upgrade options, and keep reading to learn if this option is best for you.

This option is for you if . . .

You want to make the most of the books you already have 

If you already own Logos, chances are you have a lot of books—thousands of pages of insights just waiting to be let out.

The new Logos 8 features release those insights so you can understand the Bible even better.

For example, the new Workflows feature will usher commentaries into your study at just the right time, or bring an insight from a Bible dictionary to help you understand a key word or concept. Having those resources gives Workflows more to work with.

So a feature upgrade is for you if you want to make the most of the books you already have.

You only want certain features 

Every new Logos feature is powerful and fun, but you might have your eyes set on a few that best fit your needs.

With three levels of feature upgrades, you choose just the features that matter most to you.

Take Workflows, for example. There are different types of Workflows in every Logos 8 Feature Upgrade, and some are only included in the Full Feature Upgrade:

  • Workflows in Starter: Bible Study, Biblical Person, Topical, Devotional, Praying through Scripture
  • Workflows in Bronze: Everything in Starter + Biblical Place, Word Study, and Lectio Divina
  • Workflows in the Silver and up and the Full Feature Upgrade: Everything in Bronze + Expository Sermon Preparation and Passage Exegesis

You can compare all feature sets in complete detail to help you decide, but here’s a highlight of the main differences between the levels:

Now is not the time for new books

If you are a Logos user, chances are you love books. And who can blame you? Books throw open the windows of our mind and change our lives.

But for a variety of reasons, now may not be the right time for you to invest in an expanded library. We want you to be able to make use better use of the books you already do own, which is why we make feature upgrades available.

And if you choose to grab a Logos library upgrade later, you can.

See your unique price on feature upgrade options.

So why get a feature upgrade?

In summary, a feature upgrade is for you if:

  • You already own a Logos base package and want just the new features (at your custom price)
  • You want to see what certain features in Logos 8 can do with your current resources
  • You sense that your current library will give the new features plenty to work with

If that’s you, shop feature upgrades.
