This post will help you get the most out of your Logos Bible app. If you aren’t using the free Logos app on your mobile device, you’re missing a premier Bible study experience. Get it now for iOS or Android.
The Logos Bible app is more than your simple Bible reader—it’s an in-depth study tool designed to help you comprehend the Bible’s complex text in a whole new way.
Get the free Logos Bible app right now, and instantly access three valuable study guides that put difficult passages into an understandable context.
Meanwhile, here are three guides included in the Logos Bible app that can help you get more out of your Bible study.
The Bible is filled with complicated passages. “What does this passage mean?” and “How does this passage apply to my life?” are common questions.
The Passage Guide in your Logos Bible app is here to help.
Using the Passage Guide, you’ll gain a “big picture” view of any Bible excerpt, and access a bevy of valuable information from the commentaries, cross-references, and media that are in your library. The Passage Guide is the fastest and most exhaustive way to find where a passage is talked about anywhere in your Logos library.
Sometimes there are specific words in a Bible passage that require further explanation. A word may have had a specific meaning in the original language—one that is difficult to convey in the translation process.. These obscure words make it difficult to fully comprehend the full Bible passage when you’re reading an English translation.
That’s where the Exegetical Guide in your Logos Bible app comes in handy.
Dig deeper into the original Greek and Hebrew text to break apart a complicated passage word-by-word. Get definitions and direct links to your lexicons and library in tremendous detail—no Greek or Hebrew language experience required!
The Bible is full of engaging topics—grace, prayer, the resurrection, and more. When you own a library full of resources and are looking to study a particular topic, where do you even begin?
Use the Topic Guide in your Logos Bible app to comb your library for resources that have relevance to any biblical topic.
After running the Topic Guide, you’ll retrieve resources and information broken up into several sections:
- Definition Section – get a definition of the topic from different dictionaries and encyclopedias in your library.
- Related Verses – find Bible references related to your topic.
- Illustrations – get stories and sermon illustrations from your library.
- Media Resources, Biblical People, Places, Things & Events – find images from your library, related to the topic.
