For the past couple months I have had the chance to work with the new Logos 6.
Logos 6 offers a host of new features and tools for language study, Bible study, research into ancient cultures, and literature. However, the most amazing part of Logos 6 are the host of new visual tools that help teachers of the Bible better communicate the content to a broader audience.
I could write a lot on this, but instead of reading about it, watch this short video which shows a lot of the new features in Logos 6.
If you are new to Logos, you may be overwhelmed with all the options, books and features. You can check out each package for yourself at anytime, but to make it simple, here is my recommendation for which package is right for you.
Personal Study and Devotion = Bronze
If you are someone who wants to dig deeper into the Bible and sites like Bible Gateway just don’t provide enough, then I recommend starting with Bronze. Some of the important features here are listed below.
