Introducing Logos Bible Software 7

Logos Bible Software 7 is here

After nearly two years of preparation, Logos 7 has arrived! Our latest release represents the most complete Logos experience yet—with new tools to take you from that initial spark of insight to sharing biblical truth with others. We’ve made it faster to get started in Logos, easier to uncover essential biblical insights, and simpler to share what you’ve learned.

Like you, we’re passionate about studying God’s Word, and we know what it’s like to uncover something from Scripture that you just can’t keep to yourself. Even if you’re not creating a sermon or Bible study, biblical insights inevitably spill over into everyday conversation.

That’s what drove us as we created our latest release. Logos 7 is all about that process of digging into the Word, discovering biblical truth, and delivering what you’ve learned to the people you serve and love. More than any previous version, Logos 7 is fine-tuned for every step of in-depth Bible study, from start to finish.

New ways to start your study

Getting started in Logos is easier than ever with new Quickstart Layouts tailored to different types of study and core Bible study tasks. Just select a preformatted layout, and Logos 7 opens all the features and resources you need to begin your study.

Of course, not everyone uses Logos to drill into one specific passage. Some of us study by topic or resource, and the new Courses Tool provides the perfect starting point.Choose from dozens of carefully designed learning plans that pull together key resources, media, and Logos features. You can even work through one of the Mobile Ed courses included in all of our Logos 7 Libraries!

 

 

New tools to deepen your study

We’ve created lots of new datasets, tools, and media for your Bible study—and made the ones you already rely on even better.

New datasets and Visual Filters help you customize your study. Build a browsable index for any resource in your library with the Concordance Tool. This new feature is perfect for Greek and Hebrew study—browse repeated terms and lemmas and quickly identify key themes in the text. Or link your English and original language Bibles using the new Multiview Resources panel. Click, and the Corresponding Words visual filter lights up the text with eye-opening patterns.

Make fresh discoveries with new interactive media. Explore a first-century tomb and learn more about the significance of the resurrection for the Christian life. Get a crash course in biblical manuscripts and textual criticism. Or sort and explore every miracle in the Bible with a new interactive—visualized in the “bubble” style of our popular Psalms and Proverbs Explorers.

Find (and create) the right media, instantly. We’ve improved Visual Copy and added easy ways to search and browse all your media with the new Media Tool. Finding, sharing, and presenting the perfect image, video, infographic, or other media is easier than ever.

 

 

 

A new way to share what you’ve learned

Equipping preachers has always been at the heart of what we do. That’s one reason I’m so excited about Logos 7’s new Sermon Editor. Now you can write your sermon inside Logos with smart editing and styling tools created just for sermon prep. Sermon Editor even gives you a headstart on your sermon slides as you type, helps you create handouts, and formats your sermon manuscript or outline with easy-to-read speaking prompts.image01

This barely scratches the surface of what’s new. Take a look at everything we’ve made for your Bible study, and let me know what you think. I hope you’re as excited by Logos 7 as I am!
