      • That download includes both an Academic Basic Features Set and an Academic Basic Library. Someone listed all the books included, but where is a list of the Academic Basic Features added in that Set?

        Can you provide the Features List from that Set?

  • Unfortunately, the notice does not say that you have to be a current student or faculty member to qualify for this freebie. I should have known better. Obviously, Logos’ definition of scholar is much narrower than mine.

  • Does one have to be a student, etc.? I teach homeschool with my wife; does that count for anything?

    • Thanks, Dave, for your interest in Logos Academic Basic. We’re limiting this product to students/faculty currently enrolled/employed at learning institutions to ensure we have a product that’s just for them. I encourage you to try our free Logos 7 Basic, which includes many great resources to get started doing deep, meaningful digital Bible study. We’ve even opened up the Logos Web App to Logos 7 Basic users so you can use Logos on any computer, any time. Let us know how you like it!

  • Thank you for offering Logos for Students and Scholars for free. What a wonderful tool to begin studying the bible with in college. It has been many years since my college days at Arlington Baptist College, and had I had Logos back then I know I would have done better in school. I have been using Logos since about version 2 or 3. I have enjoyed it over the years, and it has taught me quite a bit. Logos is a great tool for studying the LOGOS.

  • I previously posted here a request for a list of the Features Set that comes with this offer, and my post was deleted rather than answered.

    I compared to my Laptop which was not updated yet and it appears those items from the Feature Set that comes with this are as follows:

    Found in my Tools Pull Down Menu 3 features added by this offer:
    Greek Alphabet Tutor
    Hebrew Alphabet Tutor
    Text Converter (converts original language words to English)

    Hope others find this information useful to complement the Resources List already provided earlier, and hope this does not get deleted this time.

    This is a very useful addition for students studying original Bible Languages.

    Thank you very much.
