Craft Your Message
Format your presentation
Format your main points and subpoints in a snap. Bring attention to key words or quotes to make them easier to read as you present. With the Sermon Builder feature, you can simply select a quote or word you want to emphasize and choose a font size or highlight color from the palette under the Speaker drop-down menu. In just a few steps, your study notes become a finished sermon.
Add Scripture and quotes in no time
The Sermon Builder recognizes Scripture references and automatically inserts the corresponding text. If you are preaching on Jesus as the Good Shepherd from John 10, you can quickly add the parable of the lost sheep from Luke 15. Simply enter Luke 15:1–7 into your sermon document, and Logos automatically inserts the passage. Does a different translation better capture the nuance of a word or phrase? Click the hyperlinked translation to select a different version, and Logos automatically updates the text. Want to incorporate a quote from a commentary or other author? Copy and paste selections from the resource in your library in a fully-formatted and hyperlinked form.
Build your presentation as you write
The Sermon Builder automatically creates slides for your main headings, but you can add slides for your Scripture text with a simple click. Do you want your audience to follow along by filling in the blanks? Highlight words and phrases, and select Fill-in-the-blank. The Sermon Builder creates the handout for you and, if you like, a discussion guide too.
No need to reinvent the wheel . . . or outline
Modify a thematic outline from the Sermon Starter Guide or another sermon outline from your library. Just copy an outline to the Sermon Builder with a single click. Logos opens a new document using the outline, and you can add or delete content to tailor the outline to your purposes.
Present Your Message
From prepping to preaching in a single tap
Now that you’ve finished your hours of study and preparation, you don’t have to waste another minute with printing. Just tap the Present button on your computer or mobile device to enter Preaching Mode, and Logos converts your manuscript to a presentation you can smoothly navigate page by page or in a continuously scrolling fashion.
Extend your sermon’s impact
Share your sermon with your Faithlife group, publish it to Faithlife Sermons, or print a copy with a few clicks. Just enter some basic sermon info and relevant tags. When you include Scripture reference and topic tags, Logos adds your sermon to the various Guides for the corresponding Scripture passage(s) or topic(s). For example, if you are preparing a message on the incarnation, add reference tags for John 1:1–18, 1 John 3:4–10, and Romans 5:1–11. The next time you search for any of these references in a Passage Guide, your sermon appears among the resources.
