Why I Bought Another Base Package

logos-6-goldI got Logos 6 Gold the day it came out. For me it was a no-brainer. The combination of new tools like Visual Copy, Interactive Media, and a solid set of reference works—many of which I’d already been eyeing—made it an easy decision.

At the time, I was deep into a study of Old Testament altars, and Cultural Concepts helped me make connections that I would have otherwise missed. My love for Logos 6 hasn’t waned an ounce since then. Every time I open the software I learn something new.

But last week I noticed something. Many users, especially Logos 6 owners, were buying second and third base packages. I had never considered doing this; one research library seemed to serve me just fine. I wondered, “What do these people know that I don’t?

So I did a little investigating, and it turns out that I could add some very valuable reference works to my library at a huge savings if I picked up a second base package.

baptist-bronzeI started with the Baptist track because it’s the most familiar to me. (I grew up Baptist, and my father is still a Baptist pastor in the southeastern US.) And sure enough, Logos 6 Baptist Bronze included 63 books that would be new to me.

The tradition-specific base-package tracks share many of the same reference works that powered my library, but they also included some works that I lacked, including:

Thanks to Dynamic Pricing, I could add these 63 titles to my library for just $175.66—that’s $2.76 per title! This seemed like another no-brainer to me.

reformed-bronzeThen I jumped over to the Reformed track, and found much of the same. Dynamic Pricing offers me Logos 6 Reformed Bronze (and its 26 books new to me) for less than $100. The price per title was a little higher—at $3.17—but the quality of works included was also high:

So for less than $3.25 per title, I could add nearly 100 more exceptional reference works to my Logos library. I was missing out!

If, like me, your appetite for learning seems to outrun your book budget and you’re always on the hunt for a bargain, I’d encourage you to add a second (or third) base package to your library.

Base packages are the most cost-effective way to grow your theological library, especially for those of us who have been Logos users for a long time and can—by virtue of our existing libraries—make good use of Dynamic Pricing. Base-package families enable us to augment our library with teaching from the traditions we’d like to explore further.

With introductory offers like 15% off and up to $900.00 worth of gifts available, this is the best time to buy. These offers end soon, so take advantage of them before they’re gone!

Shop for your second (or third) base package today.
