Logos 5’s Bible Facts puts all things biblical in reach, perspective
New tool connects the dots for all biblical people, places, things, events with profiles, maps, family trees, illustrations, more
BELLINGHAM, Wash., December 12, 2012 — Logos Bible Software’s new Bible Facts tool helps Bible readers get to know every scriptural person, place, thing and event, as well as how each relates to the Bible’s narrative as a whole. Logos 5 shows not only key passages and family trees for any character, but also illustrations and photos of ancient objects. Logos 5 connects to the Logos ecosystem and Faithlife social network with massive libraries and shared reading plans, notes and prayer requests.
“As an historian, I can attest that knowing the facts and how to get them fast is crucial — if you’re going to stand for truth and against the attacks on our faith and heritage — and Logos 5’s Bible Facts tool gets you exactly where you need to go,” says David Barton, founder and president of Wallbuilders. “History is all about being able to accurately make the connections, and so is Logos 5. Its Bible Facts connects every person, place, thing and event, from which you can select and pull up quick summaries and links to more information — including relationships, maps, photos, key passages and more — that appear with just a click. And with every event tied to an exhaustive 6,000-plus-year Timeline, you can virtually see history unfolding on the screen.”
Bible Facts lets users know if “Judah” is a person, tribe, place or all three. Besides letting readers see locations on maps and read relevant passages, Bible Facts lets them jump from dates and events to the Timeline. Other Logos 5 tools include the Clause Search, Topic Guide and Sermon Starter Guide.
Adds Barton, “Founding Era historian the Rev. Jedidiah Morse declared, ‘To record the progress of human affairs as directed by the providence of God; to exhibit the connection of events, showing how an immense series is produced as cause and effect; and to display the character of man and God is the interesting office of a historian.’ Logos 5 does exactly this.”
Logos 5 connects friends, family, colleagues and churches through Faithlife, which is wrapped around the world’s largest, most advanced study Bible, the 2.3-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.
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.
