About us

For over 30 years, Logos has been committed to building the best Bible study platform on the planet. But we’re not only interested in selling Bible tech. The Bible is the heart and soul of everything we do. We aim to inspire and nurture active students of the Word who read the Bible carefully and dig deep for the riches found inside. The Bible is for everyone, not just pastors and scholars. We want to help Christians everywhere feel empowered and confident to read, study, and share God’s Word.

Word by Word (this site, otherwise known as the Logos blog) is home to Bible-focused content written with ministers, scholars, students, and laypeople in mind. It is operated by the Logos Content Marketing Team:

Our publishing values

At Word by Word, our values drive the content we publish, the authors we interview, and the way we engage with our readers.

We are broadly evangelical. Logos (via Lexham Press) is a member of the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association, which has the following Statement of Faith. The statement is broad by design. By publishing a variety of perspectives, we seek to showcase how much we actually agree on, while also demonstrating how to disagree charitably at those points where faithful Christians sometimes reach different interpretive and theological conclusions.

We are all about the Bible. For us, this means we aren’t chasing every shiny new development in the news cycle or even in theological circles. The Logos platform is designed for deep Bible study, and our content aims to encourage Christians to be more faithful and careful students of God’s Word. We hold Scripture in the highest regard and believe in its unique authority. Every Bible student and Bible teacher must interpret and apply God’s Word both on their own and within their respective communities. We have intentionally (and consistently) taken the position that we serve Bible study best by offering a wide range of content rather than content that reflects narrow (sometimes strongly held) theological positions, no matter how inclined we may be to those positions.

We care about unity and diversity in the church. You can read more in Our Commitment to Unity and Diversity.

We want to encourage charitable engagement. While you may not agree with every article on our site, we hope you will find the writing consistently honest, thought-provoking, engaging, and soaked in Scripture. Our goal is to foster healthy, charitable conversations about the Bible among people who take the Bible seriously. We ask everyone who interacts with our content to commit to respectful dialogue as laid out in our community guidelines.

How to submit an article pitch

The first step to pitching an article is to have something worth saying. As Mark Ward writes, good writing is an act of love for God and your reader, and one way to express love in your writing is to say one thing well. (Reading Mark’s article, “Good Writing: Ten Short Maxims,” will help you understand what we’re looking for in articles we publish.)

One of the most important parts of your pitch is the thesis: your main point should be clear, focused on serving your reader, and built upon the Bible. We encourage you to write from a fresh perspective. Bring your unique experience and context to engage our readers in a new way around the timeless truths of Scripture.

When you have a topic in mind, you can drop a short pitch in the form below. We will request a full article if we believe we’re the right site to publish it on. Unfortunately, we cannot respond to and/or publish every article idea we receive, so we encourage you to send a pitch before writing a complete article. Additionally, we cannot accept an article published on another site. All work must be original and cannot already be published elsewhere.
