Faithlife Innovates Logos Bible Study Software with New Release

-

Faithlife Corporation, makers of Logos Bible Software, just released Logos 6, the world’s most innovative Bible study software. Logos 6 offers a brand-new lineup of tools and resources that empower Christians to study the Bible’s background, explore Greek and Hebrew, visualize the biblical world, and make new and exciting discoveries.

Logos 6 is all about delivering insight,” said Bob Pritchett, Faithlife president and CEO. “Building on the innovations in Logos 4 and 5, this release offers new Bible study tools and interactive media that aim to dramatically change the way Christians study the Word. Logos 6 will impact pastors, scholars, students and laypeople all over the world.”

For pastors, one of the biggest wins is Logos 6’s ability to help them create better sermons, faster. Innovative tools like Visual Copy and Cultural Concepts equip pastors to create engaging presentations while they study and explore the cultural perspective from which Scripture was written.

Logos 6 empowers pastors to take back their Fridays,” Pritchett said. “They can make new discoveries and share their findings in fresh and engaging ways — all in a fraction of the time.”

logos 6For scholars, tools like Textual Variants and Ancient Literature equip them to do intense academic research with ease — with a click, they can connect Scripture to ancient literature and study the Word side by side with original manuscripts and primary texts. Likewise, students can perform impressive research with new study tools, like Inline Search, Morph Charts and Text Converters.

The layperson will also find everything they need for powerful study: easy-to-use tools like Factbook, Everything Search and Interactive Media offer a deeper, more engaging look at Scripture.

We created Logos 6 so that real people all over the globe could do better, more insightful study — no matter how busy they are or how little they may know about the Bible,” Pritchett said.

Logos 6 is the most advanced Bible study software on the market. Faithlife, its parent company, is the worldwide leader in electronic tools and resources for Bible study, partnering with more than 200 publishers to offer over 43,000 resources across the globe.

  1. While I appreciate that Logo is continually improving and adding features, does anyone else think their upgrade fees are exorbitant? The pastors I work with are simply unable to afford the high cost of upgrades each year. With the high initial cost of Logos, I really wish they would lower the upgrade costs.

    • Hi Mike,

      I work for Faithlife, and I think the confusion comes from the distinction between an upgrade and an update, and what exactly an upgrade contains.

      An update is any work we do on the existing software and tools, and those are always free to anyone who owns the version of Logos we’re updating (if we update Logos 5, anyone who owns Logos 5 gets the update for free).

      Upgrades, however, get you entirely new datasets, tools, and resources. Our resident scholars and software developers have been working on these tools for years, and when they’re finally ready for release, the software looks and feels very different—because they’ve designed something completely new. Many of these tools don’t exist anywhere else in the world. Plus, an upgrade gets you a wealth of new books, many of which we pay substantial royalties on despite the fact that we have to put a lot of work into them to get them to work the way we want them to). We bundle the books and shrink the cost to thousands of dollars less than it would cost to purchase the books individually, because we want our customers to get the most value out of what they spend with us.

      There are also plenty of options for people who want the tools, but don’t want more books (like our crossgrade products).

      Lauren, I appreciate your review (I first read it yesterday), and I hope you don’t feel like I hijacked your post in any way. Mike brought up a great question, and one we’re answering all the time, so I thought I’d shed some light on the issue.

      • Hi Ryan,

        Thanks for weighing in here. It’s great to hear from “the horse’s mouth” a good response to Mike’s concerns below. At the end of the day, you often get what you pay for. It’s clear that Logos provides an incredible product. Thanks!

      • Thanks Ryan, I really do appreciate you weighing in. I understand that much work goes into each release, and you do have a great product. But I still stand by the fact that the cost of ownership for Logos is out of reach for many pastors. Maybe it is because I am in a rural area and the income for pastors is low. I am still on Logos 4, and even the crossgrade price seems high to me. I don’t know if there is an easy answer, but the people who need the software the most aren’t able to afford it. Perhaps, churches should be paying for the software for their pastors, or perhaps there is another way to reduce costs? I’m not sure what the answer is, but I feel there is a disconnect between the pricing and the market need.
