With a research tool as powerful as Logos, having a guide show you how to use it to its fullest potential is a must. More valuable still is having this guide available down the road—when you really need it.

You’re in church for worship, and your pastor is preaching through the book of Acts. The day’s text is Acts 8, the part about Philip and the Ethiopian eunuch. Your pastor is reading from the ESV, and you’re following along in your NKJV.
The translations are a little different, but you can usually follow. The pastor reads:
36 And as they were going along the road they came to some water, and the eunuch said, “See, here is water! What prevents me from being baptized?” 38 And he commanded the chariot to stop, and they both went down into the water, Philip and the eunuch, and he baptized him. (Acts 8:36–38, ESV)
A few weeks ago, I explained why the Lexham Bible Guides have become some of my favorite resources. But the best way to see how helpful they are is to actually use one for yourself as you study a passage.
What follows is the complete examination of Romans 8:29–30 from the Lexham Bible Guide: Romans.
When you study with your Logos software, every reference to another resource you see below is linked to the original source. Open your preferred translation, and Logos automatically scrolls Lexham Bible Guide: Romans in sync with the passages your studying.
The history of the Christian church is riddled with teachers whose work looked and sounded like orthodox Christianity—but wasn’t.
Sometimes their teaching was so close to Christianity it was hard to tell the difference. The same is true today.
Can you spot the difference between Christian orthodoxy and heresy?
“For many within the biblical field, the publication of yet another commentary seems about the last thing needed,” says Brevard Childs in the preface to his commentary on Isaiah. The author of Ecclesiastes would probably agree: “For the writing of books is endless” (12:12). This phrase haunts publishers in the night. But there are some books that truly transform your perspective—Childs’ commentary on Isaiah is one of them.
And it’s April’s free book of the month.
One of the greatest benefits of Logos is the ability to find anything in your library.
When you open the Search panel and set the search type to Basic (A), you can select All Resources (B) or Everything (C).
I’m often asked, “What’s the difference between these two search types?”
Simply put, All Resources searches all of your books while Everything searches all of your books plus the Factbook, Atlas, Community Tags, and more!
Imagine you’re studying Jesus’ prayer in Matthew 26:36. When you read that he was in the Garden of Gethsemane you say to yourself, “I know I need info about Gethsemane, but what do I need—and where do I start?”
In times like these, try an Everything Search:
- Open a Bible to Matthew 26:36 (D)
- Right click on the word Gethsemane (E)
- Select the English word Gethsemane on the right side of Context menu (F)
- Select Search: everything from the left side of the context menu (G)
When the Search opens, it is set to Basic (H) and Everything (J). As you peruse the search results, notice:
- Preferred Bible lists occurrences of the word in your designated Bible (J)
- Factbook links you to reports containing your word (K)
- Topic shows links to articles about your word (L)
- Media displays images related to your word (M)
- Atlas Results provides links to relevant maps (N)
- Library Results presents every occurrence of your word in the Library (the same as searching All Resources) (O)
As you can see, the Everything Search provides a buffet of choices to further your study.
