Why people love Logos 5

Advanced tools, essential resources, and powerful datasets make Logos 5 our most acclaimed version ever. But don’t take our word for it—we’ve received tons of endorsements from well-known ministry leaders and laypeople alike.

Here’s what other users are saying about Logos 5:

“The 5 in Logos 5 is for 5 stars . . . I have been with Logos for years and really thought the upgrade to Logos 4 was about as good as it could get. Wrong . . . Logos 5 is a significant upgrade and worth every penny. I went from Logos 4 Platinum to Logos 5 Diamond and couldn’t be happier. I love Logos 5 and can honestly say that the program is so intuitive.”

“Never seen software like this, amazing what you can do with it. I recommended it to everyone who loves God and his Word.”

“This collection of materials is enormous, [and it] allows one to peruse and select whatever’s needed to study, meditate, prepare for a sermon or Bible study . . . or just discuss with friends who may not believe in Christianity at all. . . . Set up a monthly payment plan and enjoy the benefits. You won’t be disappointed, and it’s money well invested.”

Choosing the right base package

Selecting the right upgrade can be tough. Which dataset would you benefit from most? Which resources would be best for your small group? Which base package is best for preparing lessons and sermons?

Our Logos 5 specialists want to hear these questions and help you pick the package that’s best for you. Give them a call right now at 888-875-9491 to talk through your options!

Logos 5: Cross‑References for Topics

Today’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 the most popular types of Bible study enjoyed by many Christians is cross-reference work. Toward that end, most English Bibles provide some cross-references inline with the biblical text.

If you enjoy this method of Bible investigation, you may find that those embedded cross-references are limited. So if you’d like to look up more biblical references for a given topic, try this setup that incorporates several Logos features:

  • Click the Library icon to open your electronic bookshelf (A)
  • Click Prioritize in the upper right corner of the library (B)


  • Type nave in the Library’s Find box (C)
  • Drag New Nave’s Topical Bible to the Prefer these resources list (make sure this resource is in the top five of your topical prioritized books, such as dictionaries and encyclopedias) (D)


  • Open an English Bible, such as The Lexham English Bible (E)
  • Navigate in the Bible to a passage containing a topic of interest, such as Colossians 2:14 (F)


  • Right click on a word in the verse, such as cross (G)
  • Click Selection: cross on the right side of the context menu (H)
  • Select New Nave’s Topical Bible on the left side of the context menu (I)


  • Notice this resource opens to an article containing numerous cross-references for the topic cross (J)
  • Rest the cursor on a blue Bible cross-reference to see a popup of that verse from your preferred Bible (K)


  • Click a blue Bible cross-reference to open your preferred Bible to that verse

To see multiple cross-references at once, add this to your study:

  • Choose Tools | Power Lookup
  • Select some text containing cross-references in Nave’s (L)
  • Notice that Power Lookup displays the biblical text for all of those selected cross-references (M)


If you find yourself using this setup frequently, make sure to save it as layout.

Pets That Love Logos

You know we’re passionate about bringing you the best possible tools for studying and presenting the Word. You also know we’re passionate about our mission to serve the church. But did you know we’re passionate about our family pets, too?

We want to see your pets! Post a photo of your furry friend with Logos merchandise and tag it on Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #PetsLoveLogos. Then, check out everyone’s pets on our Tagboard.

With over 400 employees, we have hundreds of pets to choose from, but here are four that we think you’ll like:


Tallulah Kangaroola

This adorable baby red kangaroo belongs to Scott Lindsey, director of ministry relations, and his wife, Michelle. Tallulah particularly bonded with their youngest daughter, Havensong. When not curled up in her carrying pouch or playing with Havensong, Tallulah enjoys donning a soft Logos onesie! This onesie is made from 100% organic cotton—making it both environmentally friendly and comfortable, perfect for kids and kangaroos alike.



Louie the Rhodesian Ridgebackpets-love-logos-louie

Rhodesian Ridgebacks are known for the strip of fur along their spines that grows backward, creating a ridge. Louie is looking particularly handsome in his blue tie adorned with a Logos sticker! Louie is part of recruiter Jennifer Spoelstra’s family, and he enjoys long cross-country trail runs with Spoelstra’s husband, Jared. You can get these stickers in two sizes—each pack includes both large and small icons to fit any surface.


Kes the Canadian Sphynx Catpets-love-logos-kes-the-cat

With blue point markings and baby-blue eyes, Kes is a striking girl! She’s been a part of my family for nearly two years, but I don’t think she’ll ever be big enough to fit a Logos onesie. Sphynx cats are nearly hairless, with a fine dusting of peach fuzz that is usually thicker on the tail, toes, and nose. Kes enjoys cuddling, knocking things off the kitchen counter, and playing fetch.


Wolfgang the Hedgehogpets-love-logos-wolfgang-the-hedgehog

Tiny and spiny, Wolfgang is an adorable little hedgehog. He is pretty relaxed, often posing for photographs snapped by owner Chris Jespersen, a member of our video team. In this shot, Wolfgang broke out his party hat and climbed into a bowl—both adorned with Logos stickers for a Logos-themed celebration! If you’re a fan of Faithlife, you can expand your sticker collection with its green leaf logo, too.

Why Studying the Apocrypha Matters

Tobit, Judith, Sirach, Bel and the Dragon—these and all the other books of the Apocrypha aren’t in the Protestant Old Testament, but they are important pieces of literature that help inform our biblical studies.

Many Christians may be nervous about studying the Apocrypha—after all, if it’s not the Bible, why does it matter? Yet these books open up a world of insights into Jewish religion and culture, especially during the intertestamental period.

Dr. David deSilva, distinguished professor of New Testament and Greek at Ashland Theological Seminary, is convinced that Protestants should be studying the Apocrypha. Watch what he has to say about it in this clip for his new Mobile Ed course:
