For nearly two decades, Logos users from around the globe have gathered annually at the Faithlife headquarters in Washington state to learn more and do more with their Bible software. This year’s National Camp Logos is on the books for June 24–26, and we want you to join. Both Camps 1 and 2 will be presented during the three days of live, hands-on training. Here’s what makes National Camp worth the journey to Bellingham.
Today we’re launching Logos Now, a new way to enjoy the future of Logos Bible Software without the wait.

Get started today with your free month of Logos Now!
Your Logos library becomes more powerful (and valuable) when you add resources. Besides providing you with new content and reading material, additional resources are one of the easiest ways to get more out of what you already own—they create connections that you wouldn’t have been able to find otherwise.
If you don’t yet have a Logos 6 base package, that’s the best place to start: base packages give you the best value when you’re building your library.
But if you already own a base package, here are five of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to build your Logos library:
1. Upgrade to a higher base package
During the Logos 6 introductory sale, you can take advantage of promotional discounts paired with Dynamic Pricing when you upgrade your library—you’ll be able to add resources found in Logos 6 without giving up any books you already own. And if you’re already using Logos 6, you’ll only pay for the books and tools that are new to you—you’ll never pay for the same datasets, media, or other resources twice.
But Logos 6 introductory offers end February 2: now’s the best time to save on an upgrade. You’ll get a custom discount based on your Dynamic Price, you’ll get the 15% promotional discount, and you could qualify for gifts with your purchase. You can also use an interest-free payment plan to spread the cost over up to 24 months.
2. Add another base package
One of the best ways to add tons of new books at great prices is to get a second or third base package. Once you own all of Logos 6’s tools, datasets, and media, you can get additional base packages and only pay for the books that aren’t already in your library.
Check out base packages based on different faith traditions or special interests—you can choose the perfect collection of books to round out your library for your faith or expertise. You can also pick your library based on the specific resources included. If you see a base package with collections or series you’ve been eyeing, you could get each new volume for just a few dollars.
3. Get book bundles on the topics you care about most
If you often focus on a specific area of study, topical bundles are a great way to get high-quality resources at a fraction of their regular prices. These bundles are tailored to excel in Logos 6: you’ll get key resources that enhance the tools and capabilities built into your software.
When you add bundles that fit the areas you’re most interested in, your study becomes more powerful. Having more books on specific topics will create more connections between them, empowering you to discover new insights.
Choose from bundles on Greek and Hebrew studies, church history, pastoral care and counseling, and much more. Or, get them all with the Master Bundle!
4. Monitor the monthly sale
If you’re looking for individual resources, start with the monthly sale: you’ll find deals at every price point on a variety of topics. And don’t forget to check your wish list—chances are good you’ll see something on sale you’ve been wanting! You can get big savings on commentaries, reference works, biblical-studies resources, and more.
5. Claim your freebies
What’s better than adding free books to your library? You can often find free books attached to different sales, so watch for these opportunities throughout the year.
However, some titles are free year round—for example, get R.C. Sproul’s Crucial Questions Series and add 20 volumes on various theological topics, including the Holy Spirit, baptism, and more.
Plus, every month, check out the Free Book of the Month—over the course of a year, you’ll add 12 additional titles to your library at no cost.
Start building your library today with Logos 6!
Logos 6 introductory offers end February 2, so time’s running out to save on new base packages and upgrades.
Upgrade to Logos 6 today, or get an additional base package to pair with your existing library: whatever you choose, you won’t want to miss this chance to save.
Logos 6 is powered by three major building blocks: the core engine, datasets and media, and a massive research library. Base packages have all three of these components, but they aren’t the only way for you to get Logos 6.
We’ve built a few other options so you can get the parts of Logos 6 that fit your needs without breaking your budget. Watch this video to check out your options:
Here are the three ways you can move to Logos 6:
Grow your library and get Logos 6′s features
Logos 6 base packages offer a combination of value, features, and books. When you upgrade your base package to Gold or higher, you’ll get all of Logos 6’s features, datasets, media, and major components—plus tons of new books.
With a new base package, you’ll grow your library for pennies on the dollar, creating new connections between hand-tagged resources and making your library more powerful. This option is for the serious student of the Word, and it’s your best choice for getting richer, more insightful Bible study with Logos 6.
Sign in and see which package we recommend for you.
Get just the Logos 6 features
If you just need the key Logos 6 features and datasets without growing your library, you can choose a crossgrade option. Crossgrades allow you to power your existing library with the new Logos 6 features. If you already own a base package but want Logos 6′s smart research tools and functionality, this is a great option for you.
Get the Logos 6 look and feel
If you don’t want a bigger library and don’t need access to the new datasets, you can wait for the free core engine to be released in early February. You’ll get the new Logos 6 look, but you’ll be missing almost all the new functionality and features.
Logos 6 empowers you to discover new insights and equips you to share them with others. When you get Logos 6, you get an impressive set of Bible study tools—like the Ancient Literature tool, which connects ancient texts to the biblical text; Factbook, which quickly assembles an overview of resources related to any biblical topic; Visual Copy, which makes creating and sharing quote images and slides easier than ever; and dozens more.
But maybe you’ve heard all that, and you’re still not sure if you should get Logos 6.
Here are six reasons to get Logos 6 now:
1. You’ll discover new insights.
Logos 6 includes the latest research tools and an abundance of resources, and you have the opportunity to show the world what you can do with them.
Some of Logos 6’s brand-new datasets contain information that’s never been assembled like this before. This original, curated content is the first of its kind in the world of biblical research. You can be one of the first to explore this new territory: who knows what insights you’ll find. And once you find them, who knows whose life you’ll change with them.
2. You’ll start saving more time.
With Logos 6, you’ll save more time than ever in your biblical research and sermon preparation. New features like Visual Copy will save you valuable hours—no more going back and forth between your books, your software, and your presentation.
Our in-house scholars have tagged your Logos texts and other relevant information to free up the time you previously spent scanning pages and working through book indexes. You’ll do better searches and find the results you need in just a fraction of the time.
In short, Logos 6’s tools are designed to get you relevant information, fast.
3. You’ll be able to quickly share your findings.
Logos 6 includes the most powerful tools for Bible study ever—tools that help you glean insights from the Word. Whether you’re doing ancient-language study, preparing for small group, or searching for answers to difficult questions, Logos 6 will help you find insights and equip you to share them with others.
Studying the Bible isn’t just about personal growth: it’s also about growing others.
4. You’ll go back to the original sources.
You’re working in the Word and studying the Bible regularly: Logos 6′s tools will allow you to get back to the sources. Logos 6 won’t replace your hard work—but it will help ensure your work is an accurate representation of biblical truth.
With Logos, you can study multiple reference works at once. Drawing from a variety of perspectives in your studies will keep your work well rounded. Tools for ancient-language study will help you get into the source material so you can read the original text and draw your own conclusions without having to completely rely on English translations.
5. You’ll get the same software others are already loving.
Logos 6 is the most user-loved, critically acclaimed Bible software available. Here’s what a few users are saying:
— Norman Clack (@NormanClack) October 29, 2014
In case you are wondering, the new Send to Kindle on @logos 6 absolutely rocks. Game changer. Lovin the update, thanks for all the work guys
— Chris (@chrisandandria) October 31, 2014
The new Atlas feature on @Logos 6 to help you better understand cultural context is a game changer! The zoom option is money too!
— Adam Donyes (@Donyes) November 1, 2014
6. You’ll get a great deal.
During the Logos 6 introductory sale, you’ll get 15% off all Logos 6 base packages. Plus, if you spend at least $500 during your base-package purchase, you’ll get special introductory gifts.
In addition to 15% off, you’ll also be eligible for Dynamic Pricing. If you already own any resources included in your Logos 6 base package, you’ll get a custom discount—only pay for what’s new to you.
With a wide range of base-package and crossgrade options, you’re sure to find one that’s perfect for you. You can also take advantage of an interest-free payment plan to spread out the cost.

In slightly less than 58 years, Charles Spurgeon, the British Baptist preacher, wrote and preached the hundreds of sermons that made him one of the most influential preachers ever. Mark Driscoll called Spurgeon, one of today’s most quoted preachers, “The greatest Bible preacher outside of Scripture.” The elegance of his arguments makes them memorable.
Whether you’re a casual reader of Spurgeon’s Morning and Evening or a scholar using Logos 5 to search the 86-volume Charles Spurgeon Collection, you’ll find wisdom in the following 30 quotes from the Prince of Preachers himself.
Did we miss any important quotes? Let us know in the comments!
- Ambition: Our meat and our drink is to do the will of him who sent us.
- Atheism: Atheism is a strange thing. Even the devils never fell into that vice, for “the devils also believe and tremble” (James 2:19).
- Authority of the Bible: If there be anything in the church to which you belong which is contrary to the inspired Word, leave that church.
- Neglect of the Bible: There is dust enough on some of your Bibles to write “damnation” with your fingers.
- Teaching of children: Where the plow does not go and the seed is not sown, the weeds are sure to multiply. And if children are left untrained, all sorts of evil will spring up in their hearts and lives.
- Purpose of the church: Not for yourself, O church, do you exist, any more than Christ existed for himself.
- Compassion: I am certain that to preach the wrath of God with a hard heart, a cold lip, a tearless eye, and an unfeeling spirit is to harden men, not benefit them.
- Christ’s death: Nothing puts life into men like a dying Savior
- Fear of death: Dying is the last, but the least matter that a Christian has to be anxious about.
- Discipleship: If persecution should arise, you should be willing to part with all that you possess—with your liberty, with your life itself, for Christ—or you cannot be his disciple.
- Faithfulness: I know of nothing which I would choose to have as the subject of my ambition for life than to be kept faithful to my God till death, still to be a soul winner, still to be a true herald of the cross, and testify the name of Jesus to the last hour. It is only such who in the ministry shall be saved.
- Holiness: If your religion does not make you holy, it will damn you. It is simply painted pageantry to go to hell in.
- Holy Spirit: All the hope of our ministry lies in the Spirit of God operating on the spirits of men.
- Hope: Christ always preached doctrine that was hopeful. While he denounced self-righteousness, he would turn round and say, “I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance” (Luke 5:32). If he ever had a frown on his brow, it was for the hypocrite and the proud man. But he had tears for sinners and loving invitations for penitent ones.
- Jesus’ name: This is the one unbuttressed pillar on which all prayer must lean. Take this away, and it comes down with a crash.
- Joy: The greatest joy of a Christian is to give joy to Christ.
- Love for Christ: Come, Jesus, come into my heart, and let thy treasures be mine forevermore!
- Mercy: God’s mercy is so great that you may sooner drain the sea of its water, or deprive the sun of its light, or make space too narrow, than diminish the great mercy of God.
- God’s patience: We have heard in these days a blasphemer stand on a public platform and say, “There is no God, and if there is a God,” taking out his watch, “let him strike me dead in five minutes.” When he still found himself alive, he argued that there was no God. The fact was, God was much too great to be put out of patience by such an insignificant wretch as he.
- Perseverance: I protest that if you take final perseverance from me, you have robbed the Bible of one of its crowning attractions.
- Neglect of prayer: Live and die without prayer, and you will pray long enough when you get to hell.
- Power of prayer: You can be omnipotent if you know how to pray, omnipotent in all things which glorify God.
- Preaching: When I cease to preach salvation by faith in Jesus, put me into a lunatic asylum, for you may be sure that my mind is gone.
- Pride: Pride is the devil’s dragnet in which he takes more fish than in any other, except procrastination.
- Resurrection: The resurrection is a fact better attested than any event recorded in any history, whether ancient or modern.
- Satan: He can make men dance upon the brink of hell as though they were on the verge of heaven.
- Slander: The first sin which came into the world hardened man’s heart in a most terrific manner, so that he dared to excuse himself and even to charge God as being indirectly the author of his sin, by giving him the woman (Gen. 3:12).
- Suicide: That crime of all crimes most sure of damnation if a man commit it willfully and in his sound mind, I mean the crime of self-murder.
- God’s wrath: If there be a man before me who says that the wrath of God is too heavy a punishment for his little sin, I ask him, if the sin be little, why does he not give it up?
- Worship: All places are places of worship to a Christian. Wherever he is, he ought to be in a worshiping frame of mind.
