Logos Bible Software is one of the biggest bible programs. Fairly recently, the newest edition Logos 10 was released. I recommend every church leader have some level of Logos, because of the monthly free and heavily discounted books, and Lexham Bible Dictionary, a free dictionary which is modern and helpful. For instance, the free books for this month (Nov 22, more books because of Black Friday promo) are Luke (Preacher’s Commentary series) by Bruce Larson, Jon Courson’s Application Commentary: New Testament, Christ and Spirituality in St. Thomas Aquinas and Choosing Gratitude by Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth. In terms of brilliant discounted books for this month (using USD), MacArthur’s Quick Reference Guide to the Bible 1.99, God in the Manger by MacArthur 1.99, 1 Peter (NIV Application Commentary) by McKnight 4.99, Sermon on the Mount (Story of God, NIV commentary series which is somewhat an update on the NIVAC) by McKnight 4.99, 1 and 2 Thessalonians (Story of God commentary) 5.99, Ecclesiastes (Word Biblical Commentary) by Murphy 6.99, Joel (Zondervan Exegetical Commentary) by Joel Barker 7.99, Mark (Zondervan Exegetical Commentary) by Mark Strauss 8.99, Acts (NIVAC) by Ajith Fernando 8.99 and John 2nd ed (WBC) by George Beasley-Murray 9.99 [Grab these books here if it’s still November 22]. These work out quite cheap and while the Word Biblical Commentary is probably not recommended for new leaders, NIVAC and Story of God are aimed at application and can be helpful for small group leaders through to starting preachers and even after conversion to AUD these are quite cheap.
I hope to put together my own review for Logos 10, and evaluate a few of the packages but in the mean time, I wanted to collate a few resources on Logos 10 to help you with any decisions, and these will provide another perspective, when my review is finally done. Please note that I’ve compiled a number of resources here, from a number of different sources. Inclusion of this other content shouldn’t be taken to say that I agree with all comments, that there is any relationship between me, this blog and the other creators, and shouldn’t be seen as approval of this content by those who I’ve referenced here.
Also, if you decide to make a purchase then an affiliate link that I have as a Logos package owner is https://partners.faithlife.com/click.track?CID=444667&AFID=525197 and I may get some credit to purchase more resources.
