Logos 5’s new Sermon Starter does pastors’ groundwork


Logos Bible Software’s digital tool helps pastors kick-start, craft their sermons

BELLINGHAM, Wash., January 17, 2013 — Logos Bible Software’s new Sermon Starter Guide pulls together all the information pastors need to build lectures and lessons. It lets pastors access the most advanced sermon-prep resources — smart lists of Bible verses, illustrations, suggested outlines, scholarly articles and more — in seconds by simply entering a passage or topic. Sermon Starter Guide connects to the Logos ecosystem and Faithlife community with massive libraries, shared reading plans, notes and prayer requests.

“Like most pastors, I appreciate all the help I can get when I’m building sermons, especially help in sharing God’s Word using the latest technologies,” says Mark Driscoll, bestselling author and senior pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle, Wash. “Sermon Starter Guide helps me pour the wisdom of God’s Word, biblical media, and tens of thousands of other digital resources into my sermons in the form of relevant Scriptures, illustrations, videos, scholarly quotes, related Greek and Hebrew words and more.”

Logos 5’s Sermon Starter Guide helps pastors brainstorm new sermon ideas and build gripping visual displays using photos, maps, infographics and charts that can easily be exported to Proclaim church presentation software or PowerPoint. Other Logos 5 tools include the Timeline, Clause Search, Bible Facts and Topic Guide.

“Logos Bible Software is an extraordinary tool for both the Bible teacher and the Bible student,” says Ray Comfort, founder & president of Living Waters. “Its extensive and expandable library of resources, ingenious search capabilities, and user-friendly interface make Logos 5 an indispensable and delightful aid for every user. You won’t be disappointed!”

Friends, family, colleagues and churches can connect in Logos 5 through Faithlife, which is wrapped around the world’s largest, most advanced study Bible, the 2.2-million-word Faithlife Study Bible. Pastors and worship leaders can collaborate on multimedia worship services using Proclaim church presentation software’s cloud-synced technology. And readers can bring one-touch Bible references to their Christian fiction and nonfiction with Vyrso Christian ebooks, which, with Logos, offers tens of thousands of digital Christian resources.

Until Feb. 4, Logos is offering an introductory 15 percent off Logos 5’s seven base packages, which range from the 191-resource Starter, now priced around $250 and worth $3,500 in print, to the 2,585-resource Portfolio, now priced under $4,300 and worth $78,000 in print. The intermediate packages are Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond.
