With the launch of Logos 8 come several new features that will appeal to every biblical scholar. These features range from various ways to visually work the biblical text to building your own morphological queries.

Check out these eight Logos features and updates that working academics will appreciate:

Workflows

Workflows are step-by-step study guides that use Logos features and resources along the way to bring you fresh insights in the research work of a scholar. Advanced workflows like the Passage Exegesis or Expository Sermon Preparation include over forty sub-steps for a truly exhaustive study experience. A scholar can also create and share workflows with your students and peers who own Logos.

These workflows are available in Logos 8 Silver and above / the Full Feature Upgrade

Canvas

Work the biblical text with intuitive tools for breaking down, arranging, and marking up a passage. Circle. Highlight. Underline. Make connections. A scholar can even rearrange a passage to show logic and emphasis. Then, share your creation in just a few clicks. Great for teaching and classroom visuals.

Hebrew Cantillations

Cantillation marks guided Hebrew worshippers as they chanted the biblical text. For modern readers, they help identify major breaks in the text. Logos lets you quickly identify those marks and see how they influence the division of the text.
