Will Logos Work on Windows 10?

logos_logo_RGB_v_500x500Windows 10 has been in the news a lot lately. Microsoft’s move to offer a free upgrade to many of its customers has certainly garnered some attention! If you’re like many Windows users, you might wonder whether you should upgrade. And if you’re a Logos user, a couple of other questions may come to mind.

Will Logos work on Windows 10?

Has anyone tested Logos on Windows 10?

We set out to answer those concerns as soon as we were able to get our hands on the public beta of Windows 10. The answer to both questions is an emphatic “YES!”

We’ve had several people using Windows 10 since very early in the public beta program and have found no issues that impact normal daily use of Logos. We came across a few very minor issues related to Windows 10 and have already fixed many of those in Logos 6.4.

Should you upgrade? That’s a question only you can really answer. But as a Logos user, if you want to upgrade to Windows 10 you have nothing to worry about. If you want to take advantage of the free upgrade to Windows 10, don’t let any concerns about Logos hold you back.

If you’ve not yet upgraded to Logos 6, upgrade now to get the most out of your software in Windows 10.

Serve the Church without Burning Out

Ministry Leadership Bundle_Artwork 2
Ministry leaders have a high calling. They must serve their churches and communities with grace and integrity, evaluate the spiritual progress of their congregations, and unite the church to work as a body. They live lives of service and humility while inspiring and motivating others. And they do all this while planning sermons and Bible studies, praying for their people, organizing small-group ministries, overseeing the administrative needs of the church, and performing the countless other duties of church life.

Those are some intimidating responsibilities, and the risk of burnout is huge. Ministry leaders don’t simply need to learn a set of leadership skills; they need an approach that values their spiritual formation just as highly as boots-on-the-ground training.

How to Search the Original Languages with Logos

search original greekToday’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris, who has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos seminars, provides many training materials.

One of my favorite verses is Mark 1:35 which states in the NASB:

In the early morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went away to a secluded place, and was praying there.

The Greek word translated praying is the lemma proseuchomai (προσεύχομαι), the most frequently used Greek word for pray in the New Testament.

Let’s say we’d like to discover other places in the Bible where this verb is used in the context of Jesus’ praying. That is very simple with a Clause Search along with a little help from the context menu.

Understand the Flow of Biblical History

Timeline CollectionGenesis through Revelation isn’t laid out in neat chronological order. For instance, Ezra and Nehemiah depict events that took place near the end of the Old Testament period. But those books are placed before the book of Job—even though many scholars believe Job depicts some of the earliest events recorded in Scripture! This is an accident of the literary arrangement of the canon, but if you’re trying to understand the Bible’s chronology, you face many other challenges. From sorting out the kings of the Northern and Southern kingdoms, to following the succession of Paul’s missionary journeys, keeping track of it all can be daunting.

When you branch into church history and theology, the problem only magnifies. It’s hard to remember who influenced whom, which theologian pioneered which doctrines, how schools of thought battled it out in the public arena, and which ideas came to define the worldview of their eras.

Pastoral Wisdom from Charles Bridges

rsz_1shepherd_the_flock

Popularity is yet more dangerous: the few, who escape its influence unhurt, have been exercised in painful conflicts, such as have shown their deliverance from this fiery trial to have been nearly miraculous.

It is not easy to overcome our natural love of ease, our indisposition to self-denying devotedness, and our false tenderness in flinching from the declaration of unpalatable truths.

I‘ve only recently discovered the surprising relevance of Charles Bridges’ writing. As a preacher and church planter, I can understand why his The Christian Ministry, from which the above quotes are pulled, went through nine editions in 20 years, and is still highly valued among pastors. As I scoured over quotes from the book, I couldn’t believe I hadn’t come across this book before.

Compare Outlines of Biblical Passages

LogosPro_blogOne of the first steps of any Bible study is to develop an outline of your passage. It’s a straightforward way to grasp the argument, flow of thought, and themes in that section of Scripture. As you’re developing an outline, it’s immensely helpful to see how others have understood the structure of the passage. Seeing the work of multiple commentators can open your eyes to possibilities you haven’t considered.

Comparing outlines from commentaries and sermon collections in a paper library would be time consuming and cumbersome. But with Logos’ Bible Outline Browser, you can instantly see outlines drawn from your resources, all in one place.
