Use Proclaim Free through February!

When Logos launched Proclaim Church Presentation Software’s free beta version in October, pastors, worship leaders, and other ministry partners were excited by Proclaim’s sleek presentations, collaborative, cloud-based interface, and other game-changing features. As of January 2012, Proclaim is out of beta and the full version is ready to go.

Due to the overwhelming response to Proclaim last year, we are extending the free trial period to give your team a chance to run the full version of Proclaim during their worship services.

Proclaim will continue to be free through the end of January, but getting it free through February is easy (more details below). Of course, you are able to purchase your On Air license anytime (monthly or yearly) and it will begin once this free trial period is over.

How It Works

Extending your free Proclaim On Air license through February is a simple three-step process:

  1. Go On Air and take a picture of Proclaim being used during your weekend service.
  2. Post your picture on Proclaim’s Facebook page. (You will need to “Like” the Proclaim Facebook page before you can do this.)
  3. Tag your worship team members and Proclaim Church Presentation Software.

It’s that easy!

If You Haven’t Tried Proclaim

Proclaim’s cloud-based presentation is changing the way pastors, worship leaders, and other ministry partners put together a service. With presentations available online, every member of your team can access and edit the presentation throughout the week from anywhere with an internet connection.

Go to ProclaimOnline.com for information, screenshots, and to download Proclaim.

So enjoy Proclaim for free this January. We’ll keep an eye out for your post and look forward to extending your free On Air license through February.

The John Wesley Collection: A Legacy of Faith

The 29-volume John Wesley Collection tells a story of perseverance, strength, and extraordinary faith.

In June of 1720, John Wesley entered Christ Church College, Oxford. John’s younger brother soon formed a group called the Holy Club, which met weekly. They were named “Methodist” by their fellow students because of the methodical way in which they lived. Wesley and his brother chose to sail upon The Simmonds from Gravesend, Kent to the Province of Georgia in the American colonies with a plan to spread Christianity.

On his voyage to the colonies, Wesley came to know the Moravian settlers. During their travels across the sea, they came upon a massive storm. The mast was ripped off the ship, and while the other passengers worried themselves, the Moravians prayed and sang hymns. Wesley was in awe of their incredible strength and faith. The Moravians left a lasting impression on his heart, and heavily influenced his theology of Methodism.

After spending some time in Georgia, Wesley decided it was not the place for him, so he soon returned to England, determined to earn money for a church. Back in England, he came to admire the evangelist George Whitefield who gave sermons in the open air to people excluded from church. This inspired Wesley to begin offering his own non-traditional sermons, seeking to reach a wider range of listeners. He preached in fields, houses, and even town halls.

Wesley continued evangelizing until his death in 1791. At this time he had led approximately 135,000 members and 541 itinerant preachers to Methodism. His legacy still resonates through Christianity today, and his writings remain a source of exhortation and teaching to evangelicals around the world.

The Logos Bible Software edition of the John Wesley Collection allows you to perform in-depth searches on all 16,951 pages so that you get the most out of your Bible study, sermon preparation, and research.

Key Features

  • All 14 volumes of his collected works
  • Complete and authoritative eight-volume journal
  • The four-volume Explanatory Notes, Wesley’s complete commentaries on the entire Bible
  • In-depth biography
  • Essays, letters, sermons, grammars, psalms, hymns, and addresses

The John Wesley Collection is valued at $882.24, but you can pre-order it today at the incredible Pre-Pub price—a savings of 77%! That brings the cost down to less than $7 per book.

This Is It—December Deals End Tonight!

Bringing you this year’s Christmas sales has been a blast. Between offering deep discounts on powerful resources, a return of last year’s Christmas collections, and offering it all with credit back on future Logos.com purchases—this has been a real fun ride. But it all ends tonight.

All 12 Days of Logos products, base package discounts, Christmas collections, and opportunities for Christmas credit will disappear at 11:59 PM (PST).

Here are a couple of last minute things to be mindful of in regards to Logos’ December Deals:

You Can Search Logos.com by Price Range

Our Christmas Credit promotion returns a greater percentage of your December purchases in Logos.com credit based on how much you spend. If you spend more, you earn more.

Tiers You Spend We’ll Match You’ll Earn
Tier 1 $10–$99.99 15% $1.50–$15
Tier 2 $100–$499.99 20% $20–$100
Tier 3 $500–$999.99 25% $125–$250
Tier 4 $1,000–$2,499.99 30% $300–$750
Tier 5 $2,500–$4,999.99 40% $1,000–$2,000
Tier 6 $5,000+ 50% $2,500+

We did a blog post before Christmas which showed you how to search Logos.com by price range. Searching by price range is helpful if you are looking for another purchase to bump you into the next tier.

Let’s say you needed another $127 to get into Tier 5 to save an extra 10% on all your December purchases. You could enter price:[125 TO 130] into the Logos.com search engine, and see every product we sell between $125–$130!

We Will Be Open Tonight until 9:00 PM (PST)

We are expecting a lot of calls today, and we want to be able to help each one of you. You can call to speak to one of our representatives by 9:00 PM (PST)!

  • USA & Canada: 800-875-6467
  • UK Discounted: 0871-218-1700
  • International: (360) 527-1700

Take Advantage of Payment Plans

We have hit this point pretty hard the last couple weeks. But to be completely honest, this might be the most amazing aspect of the Christmas promo. To be able to purchase something like The New International Commentary on the Old and New Testament (40 vols.), which you might have had your eye on for a while, take up to 12 months to pay for it, and get over $475 to spend at Logos.com (even before your original purchase has been paid off) is pretty impressive.

Don’t Forget to Sign Up

You may have thousands of dollars in Logos.com credit coming. If you have neglected to sign up, we are not going to be able to give it to you. Make sure you are signed up!

We Will Start Processing Credit January 3

If you have signed up for Logos.com credit and have made qualifying purchases, you will be receiving a preliminary email soon!

So check out the December Deals one last time, because they disappear tonight!

Let’s Talk! Call Us for a Custom Deal.

We need to talk.

I don’t know exactly how to say this other than “we can’t figure it out,” but the truth is, with over 17,000 titles, thousands of different publisher licenses/price-points/royalties/geographical restrictions, and hundreds of thousands of unique customer purchase histories, collections, and libraries, we just can’t figure out how to make a one-size-fits-all Christmas sale any longer.

We have certainly been trying, as you can see by how many deals we have going on right now but we know that some of our best customers still feel left out in the cold.

So I’ll say it again. “We need to have a talk. . .” 

No, not a text, email, live-chat, Tweet or Facebook message. . . I mean a “real” talk.

Let’s connect in real time.

If you feel passed over by all our Christmas Specials this year, let’s connect in real time as human beings and pick up a phone for a real conversation where we can learn from each other, discuss how to go deeper in Bible study, and enjoy the pleasure of each other’s company while we serve you and give you the full attention and personalized service you deserve.

We will treat you as an individual and go over your specific account details, purchase history, and product interests to create a Christmas special that is custom-made for you.

This call is not for everyone.

It is a real conversation designed to discover how we can serve you better. There is no set list of offers or products to tell you about—we’ve already given that list out—that’s what the web is for. If you are looking for a discounted shopping list, or just want to know everything we have on sale, carefully look over all the published Christmas Sales that are still available here.

The phone conversation is a two way “conversation,” to see how we can serve you better with a custom special. 

There you have it, we want to serve you. It is as simple as that. Give us a call at 800-875-6467 and we will take care of you. We’ll work with you to create a custom deal for you, and we’ll even count all your purchases made before January 2, 2012 toward the Christmas Credit promotion.

We have backgrounds like you.

When you call a Logos representative, you are not being passed off to a call center 20,000 miles away from us. All our representatives are right here at our headquarters in Bellingham, WA and have backgrounds like many of you. Among our representatives we have a wide variety of life experiences and jobs—everything from pastors, worship leaders, engineers, small group directors, exercise equipment salesmen, news reporters, youth leaders, marketing reps, police officers, graphic designers, children’s ministry leaders, manufacturers, travel agents, teachers, homebuilders, pulpit supply preachers, waiters, legal consultants, basketball coaches, Bible college students, restaurant managers, young adults pastors, real estate agents, missionaries jailed for preaching the Gospel, pastoral care pastors, women’s ministry leaders. . . and more.

And if you need to talk to someone who understands your history with Logos better, we even have reps that have been here as long as eighteen years! 

The mad rush of pre-Christmas shopping is over, the office is quiet and peaceful, and our well-trained, experienced and knowledgeable representatives are ready, willing, and able to serve you now.

Please call us so we may serve you today:

  • USA & Canada: 800-875-6467
  • UK Discounted: 0871-218-1700
  • International: (360) 527-1700

If you won’t be able to reach us during this last week of 2011, or you live overseas and timing or costs don’t permit you to make the call, please send an email to sales@logos.com with the details you would have liked to have discussed in our conversation, and we will see what we can do through email.

So let’s talk. Pick up the phone and give us a call.

800-875-6467

Huge Sale on the 20-Volume NIV Application Commentary: New Testament

It’s the eleventh day of the 12 Days of Logos, and we have quite a deal for you. The 20-volume NIV Application Commentary: New Testament is now available for only $249.99! This is nearly 50% off the retail price of $477.99. In fact, right now the NIV Application Commentary is even 35% cheaper than our usually great sale price.

The NIV Application Commentary: New Testament is unlike any other commentary series. Not content to simply focus on application of the biblical text, this series seeks to actually work through the process of moving from the original meaning of the text towards it contemporary significance. It would be a mistake to see the NIV Application Commentary as devotional literature. The ultimate goal of this series may be application, but that doesn’t stop these commentaries from being credible reference material.

The Application Commentary: New Testament series includes insights from a host of  such luminaries as Darrell BockDouglas J. MooCraig Blomberg, and Craig Keener. Each author in the NIV Application Commentary breaks their exegesis into three sections:

  • Original Meaning: This section helps you grasp the author’s intended meaning by looking at the biblical passage’s historical, literary, and cultural context.
  • Bridging Contexts: In this section, the commentary wrestles with discerning the historical aspects of the passage which have direct twenty-first century correlations—and those which do not. This section focuses on drawing out both explicit and implicit parallels.
  • Contemporary Significance: By looking at contemporary issues and contexts, the authors of the NIV Application Commentaries confront modern readers with ideas and principles as powerful and challenging as the Scriptures would have been to its original audience.
Here is what people are saying about the series (check out the product page to see even more endorsements):

The NIV Application Commentary series doesn’t fool around. It gets right down to business, bringing this ancient and powerful Word of God into the present so that it can be heard and delivered with all the freshness of a new day, with all the immediacy of a friend’s embrace.
Eugene H. Peterson

It is encouraging to find a commentary that is not only biblically trustworthy but also contemporary in its application. The NIV Application Commentary will prove to be a helpful tool in the pastor’s sermon preparation. I use it and recommend it.
Charles F. Stanley, pastor, First Baptist Church of Atlanta

The NIV Application Commentary series promises to be of very great service to all who preach and teach the Word of God.
J. I. Packer, Regent College

If you pick up the NIV Application Commentary: New Testament during the Christmas 2011 sale, not only will you get a great deal these powerful commentaries, but you are going to earn at least $50 back to spend on Logos in 2012!

Logos Opens Phoenix Development Office

Logos Bible Software has hired some great software developers in the past year, but we still need more!

Earlier this year we offered a $1,000 Logos credit to anyone who referred us a programmer we hired. We’re happy to extend that offer, and hope lots of you will take us up on it.

We believe that Bellingham, Washington is one of the country’s greatest places to live, and we’ve gone to great lengths to make our office here a Best Workplace. But sometimes moving to Bellingham isn’t possible for everyone.

So in January we’re opening a development office in the Phoenix, Arizona area. Different weather, different community size, and more people who can join our team without having to move!

(Why Phoenix? To start with, we have direct flights from Bellingham’s easy, little airport to the easy, little Phoenix-Mesa Gateway airport. And then there’s the sun, which apparently spends the winter in Arizona so we will appreciate Bellingham’s glorious summers all the more. . . .)

So now it doesn’t matter if you want a big town or small town, a large office or a small group of co-workers, waterfront living or a desert paradise. If you’re a software developer who wants to serve the church and the world, we’re the place to be—in two places!

All of our software development jobs are now open in Bellingham or the Phoenix-area office.
