The New and Improved Logos Blog

In case you have missed it, there are some excited changes happening on the Logos blog! Not only does it have a sweet new design and layout, it is sporting some incredibly useful (and user-friendly!) features as well.

Logos talk

At the top page of the blog you can choose from a list of categories and instantly bring up all past content in a particular topic. Are you interested in reading more stories related to Logos’ culture, plans, and employment opportunities? Simply click on the Company tab and you can see a good picture of what has been happening with your favorite Bible software company. You can also choose from categories like Apps, Community, Products, Training, and Web.

Categories are not the only avenues to experience some of the great content you may have missed. In the sidebar we have featured ten posts that we feel are significant to read again or—if you have missed them—read for the first time. We will periodically be highlighting different posts so make sure to keep your eye on the Featured Posts section.

But that’s not all. There are just so many opportunities to catch content that you may have missed. With a lists of popular posts, recent posts, and posts similar to the one you are currently reading you might find it kind of difficult to tear yourself away!

New from Morris Proctor: A Practical Video Course on Preaching

Preaching. When it’s great, you never want to go home. When it’s poor, your mind wanders and you day dream and suddenly develop keen insights into why so many people skip church.

I often ask, “Does your pastor preach well?” I often get the answer, “My pastor has a real heart for ministry and is a kind and compassionate person.”

This is good, but at the heart of the matter a preacher needs to be skilled at preaching. It is a New Testament prescribed method for building our faith by understanding God through his Word. Everybody knows that good preaching is a good idea, but few make it a priority.

I can think of no single thing that would have greater impact in the local church than absolutely great preaching during that single hour when the majority of the church members are present. With this in mind, I want to endorse Morris Proctor’s practical course on sermon preparation, the I-Beam of Message Building.

Whether you have been preaching for years and just need to revitalize your sermon prep or whether you want to be a better teacher, or perhaps you feel called to ministry but realize you will never be able to go back to school, this is the tool for you.

Logos 4: Display Basic Search Results Differently

mp|seminars TipsToday’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos
training seminars.

With the recent release of Logos 4.2a comes different ways to display Basic Search results. Here’s how:

Generate a Basic Search and select:

  • Ranked – to arrange the search results in order of relevance determined mainly (but not exclusively) by the number of hits compared to the total number of words in the article in which the hits were found .
  • By Title – to sort the search hits alphabetically by the name of the book then sequentially by chapter or article.
  • By Count – to display the search results in descending order according to the total number of occurrences in each resource.

Personally, I prefer viewing the results By Title because I like looking through a list books to locate just the specific results I need.

New Reasons to Download the Free Logos App

Hi, I’m Dave. I’m one of the developers on the mobile team. We’re pretty excited about the recent release of Logos for iOS 1.7. We focused this release on making it easier to do the things you want while ensuring the best reading experience possible.

New Reading Controls
