A pastor friend told me not long ago, “I have Logos, but I probably use only 5% of its capacity.”
This comment came from someone under 40, meaning that he knows how to turn a computer on without fear or antagonism. It hardly counts as “technology” to him; a computer is just “normal” and “useful,” like a hammer is to others. So if this 5% figure is true of a seminary-trained pastor born after the great technological generational divide, at what percentage are the less technologically inclined? Have they successfully even logged in yet?
I want to let you in on something: When the Logos Pro team discussed this 5% anecdote in our office, we didn’t all sneer and scoff. “Ha! Those plebes. Why can’t they ever get it?! They will never achieve our measure of technological and exegetical prowess! Ha ha ha ha! Ha ha! Ha! Ha ha ha ha!”
No, there was no maniacal laughter. You want to know what we said? Things like this:
- “He probably doesn’t realize how close he is to getting far more out of the software. We need to encourage our users by helping them see that.”
- “With Logos, you might not use every feature every day, but you need to know how to use them when the job calls for it.”
- “Nobody says this about Photoshop, even though almost nobody uses all of its functionality all of the time.”
- “If he would just learn two things, he’d be well on his way to getting almost everything out of the software that he needs for routine Bible study.”
This last comment came from the one Logos Pro whom I consider to be probably, among all of us, the very tallest. And the comment interested me, personally, as a daily Logos user and Bible student.
Do you want to know the two things that a true Logos Pro, who has made countless training videos about the software, considers to be the keys to getting you past 5% functionality?
That very Logos Pro, my good friend John, has put together a free, 30-day course to teach you that and more. (It’s presented by another Pro, Adam). I’m very pleased to announce the 30-Day Challenge. If you want to learn the software you’ve invested in, all the Logos Pros invite you to join in. And did I mention that it’s free?
We’re convinced that every Christian—from the lay person to the scholar—can unlock far more insight in their Bible study with a little training. That’s what’s great about Logos: the tools you need for your Bible study are ready and waiting. As Logos Pros, we’re dedicated to helping you find the right tools for the right job, and showing you how to use them. Wouldn’t it be great to unleash the full potential of Logos for your Bible study? That’s exactly what we designed this course to do.
