- What is Faithlife? Why do I have an account with them?
In August 2014, the company known as Logos Bible Software rebranded as Faithlife Corporation. We are the same company as before, with the same people, and we are still the makers of Logos Bible Software; but Faithlife also encompasses the many other services we offer to serve the Church. The Faithlife family includes Proclaim Church Presentation Software, Mobile Ed, Vyrso, Lexham Press, and so much more. All of these tools are connected by a single account—your Faithlife account. Learn more about Faithlife.
If you previously created an account on Logos.com it is still active and valid. It has simply been renamed as your “Faithlife Account”.
- What are my Faithlife login and password?
Your web login is the email address you used to register your account. Your user–created password was entered during the new user registration process. Both email address and password can be changed once you have logged into your Faithlife Account.
If you have forgotten your password, you can reset it online by entering your email address. If you do not have access to your email account anymore, contact customer support by phone at (800) 875–6467 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

- What is the End–User License Agreement (EULA)?
The EULA is the license every user agrees to when he or she installs a copy of Logos Bible Software. In essence, the EULA says the software can be used by one user on multiple devices. Your base package is yours for your own personal use and can be used on your PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, Android, and other devices at home or at work. Read a copy of the license agreement for more information.

- What am I allowed to do with Faithlife / Logos media? Is it copyrighted?
Logos 7 and Logos Now deliver a rich set of media collections, which raises some questions: What am I allowed to do with Faithlife / Logos media? Is it copyrighted? Do I have to ask permission to show it in front of an audience? What about posting to social media?
The answer is: It depends on the media. Logos media collection slides, videos, and still photographs are released under four different licenses: Public Domain, Logos Free, Logos User, and Copyrighted. For more information please read permissions & copyright for Logos Media.
- Why was an item in my cart replaced with a different item automatically?
If you add a product to your cart that is fully contained within another product, we will remove the smaller of the two products so you don't pay twice for the same resources.
For example, if you are purchasing an individual book, and then you add a bundle that contains the individual book in your cart, we will remove the individual book because that item is contained within the bundle. This ensures that you won't pay for the same book twice.
- If I live outside the US, what currency will be used for my order?
All order on Logos.com will be purchased using USD.
- What is Logos Bible Software?
Logos is the world’s leading Bible software. Its massive networked libraries, fast searches, original language tools, and helpful Bible–knowledge features help you draw insight from the Word. The software’s beautiful media allows you to easily share these insights with others. No matter what device you’re using—Windows, Mac, iPhone, iPad, or Android—you can take your library anywhere.
- What is a base package?
A base package is made up of two essential parts:
- A theological library spanning reference works, ancient writings, and current biblical scholarship
- A Logos 7 Feature Set, including research tools and datasets that work together with your library
The power of Logos 7 is how these two work together. The Logos 7 libraries are curated to help you get the most out of the Logos 7 Feature Set. You can learn more about base packages here.
- How is a library different from a base package?
A library is a bundle of resources, carefully balanced across many categories: commentaries, Bible dictionaries, original language references, and many more. A library does not include the Logos Feature Set, which organizes the content from the library resources. A base package is a library plus a Logos Feature set.
- What is a Logos Feature Set?
The Logos Feature Sets are the tools, datasets, interactive content, and media that make Logos 7 functional. It can also be thought of as the “software” portion of Logos 7.
- Do I need a Logos 7 Full Feature Set if I have Logos Now?
With a Logos Now membership, you have access to the Logos Cloud Feature Set, which includes:
- Logos 7 Full Feature Set
- Logos 8 Early Access Features
- New, subscription-only features
However, if you are a Logos Now member and wish to own the Logos 7 Full Feature set, you can purchase it at a discounted price..
- Why did the cart replace the Logos Feature Set when I added a Logos Now membership?
In order to ensure that customers don’t purchase the same item twice, we remove the Logos 7 Feature Set when a Logos Now membership is added to the cart. This is because the Logos 7 Feature Set is contained within a Logos Now membership. If you want to become a Now member and purchase a Logos Feature Set, you’ll need to check out with each product separately.
- Where can I learn about what’s new in Logos 7?
To learn more about the new features, functionality, and resources you can get with Logos 7, visit Logos.com/7.
- Where can I learn more about using Logos 7?
The best place to begin is the Logos Pro page. You’ll also want to read the Logos blog, where we explain many of the new features in Logos 7. In addition, we have an active community of forum users who are eager to teach new users how to get the most out of our software. Finally, you may want to consider attending a Camp Logos seminar with authorized trainer Morris Proctor.
- Are there any special pricing options available?
- I thought Logos software updates were free—why do I have to pay to upgrade?
We offer free updates to the software to keep our promise that you’ll never have to pay twice for your books, and that the software to read your books on new versions of your operating system will be free. You don’t pay for updates at all, and depending on how long you have been using Logos Bible Software, you have probably already received dozens of free updates since your initial purchase.
You can think of it this way: “free updates ensure that you won’t have to pay to maintain access to content you’ve already purchased.” Since that’s a mouthful to say, some people have abbreviated that to “free updates for life,” which is easier to say, and has effectively been the case.
As far as “upgrades,” you can “upgrade” to any package—even “Starter”—and only pay for the new content, tools, datasets, etc., in that package, calculated off what you have already invested in. Typically, upgrades contain thousands of dollars’ worth of content for a small fraction of the price you would pay if you purchased the content individually. Click here to learn more about upgrading versus updating.
- Why should I upgrade?
You should upgrade to take advantage of the best value you may ever encounter on a library, and to make sure you have the latest and greatest tools for Bible study. The new base packages contain hundreds to thousands of dollars of new content for pennies on the dollar. What’s more, with dynamic pricing your resources are tallied and you receive a custom discount toward your new base package. You only pay for the new content—nothing more.
- Where can I see a list of all the contents in each package?
All the Logos Bible Software base packages have been reconfigured with new content for Logos 7. For a complete list of the exact contents in each package, visit our compare libraries page.
- What happens to books I’ve already purchased if I upgrade to Logos 7?
You keep them all! You won’t lose any books by upgrading. In fact, dynamic pricing analyzes the books you already own, so your current library counts as credit toward your Logos 7 base package.
- What are the actual download sizes for each Logos Base Package?
Logos Base Packages download size varies depending on the package. You can estimate your download size using the approximations below.
Approximate Resource Download Size Per–Package:
- Starter 5.99 GB
- Bronze 7.89 GB
- Silver 8.71 GB
- Gold 9.98 GB
- Platinum 11.41 GB
- Diamond 13.29 GB
- Portfolio 14.79 GB
- Collector’s Edition 20.09 GB
Note: Logos 7 will require more space than listed above if you own additional resources or collections. Actual download sizes will vary by user. These approximations do not include the size of the actual application files or the index. The download sizes above do not reflect the mobile apps. Logos for mobile devices is cloud–based and only uses storage for the application and individual resources you may choose to manually download.
- Will I lose any features or datasets when I upgrade to Logos 7?
Absolutely not! When you upgrade to a new Logos 7 base package, not only do you get brand–new features and datasets—you also keep everything you already have in Logos 6. And it doesn’t matter which new Logos 7 base package you choose. Upgrading only gives you more features and datasets—it doesn’t take anything away.
- Will I lose my notes, highlights, and favorites when I upgrade to Logos 7?
No. Your notes, highlights, and favorites, when synced to the cloud, will transfer to Logos 7 as long as you have internet connection.
- Do I need to uninstall Logos 4, 5 or 6 before I upgrade?
No. Your Logos 7 upgrade will replace your existing software installation (but not your books and features). If you remove Logos from your computer, you will need to re–download all of your Logos content in Logos 7.
- I just upgraded to Logos 7 and downloaded my books, but my software still says an older version of Logos. How can I get the Logos 7 engine?
If you are upgrading from Logos 4 or 5 to Logos 7, your new books will automatically download when you restart the software; however, you may need to manually install the new Logos 7 engine. If your computer meets the system requirements for Logos 7, locate the install link on your Order Summary email and follow the instructions.
- I bought a USB drive. When will my order arrive?
Most non–download orders typically arrive in 5–7 business days. Please allow extra time for delivery during the holiday season or if the drive is being shipped internationally.
- What’s the difference between the USB and download versions? What is a “media-only” USB.
If you don’t have high–speed internet, you can purchase any of our base packages on a USB drive. You will receive a USB and may receive an attached serial number with your order for activation.
Most users prefer to download the software instead. Your Logos Bible Software download begins as soon as your purchase is complete, and can be re-downloaded at any time as needed.
The media-only USB is a USB backup of your books, but will require the Logos Core Engine to run. You will need this in-addition to your base package purchase.

The payment will vary depending on order size, the number of months you choose, the items on the order, and the amount of your initial payment. You can see the payment plan options available for your purchase displayed in your shopping cart, and use the selector to see how your monthly payments would change based on your choices.
- Do you require a downpayment?
Depending on the size and length of the plan being established, and the items contained in the order, we will sometimes ask users to make an initial payment which will be greater than the monthly payments to follow. This will be clearly shown in the shopping cart.
- Why am I charged a service fee? Is that interest?
The $5 monthly service fee is not interest, but is collected to cover the very real administrative costs associated with the payment plan.
- Is a payment plan consistent with good stewardship?
Payment Plans, like credit cards, can be used either constructively or carelessly. We offer payment plans as a purchase option to allow individuals the opportunity to invest in our Bible study tools in a way that works for them, within their budget constraints.
- What happens to the pennies that can’t be divided equally?
Any remaining pennies that cannot be divided equally are included with the initial payment. For example, an order totaling $300.04 paid over three months would be split into one payment of $100.02 followed by two payments of $100.01.
- How do I purchase a product using a payment plan?
Shop as usual! You will be presented with a payment plan option in your cart on Logos.com or you can call (800) 875–6467 and ask a sales representative to assist you with a payment plan.
