Logos 5 Topic Guide finds everything Bible has to say about given theme, issue
New tool pulls up passages, rich media, profiles; connects searches to topics, themes, original-language tools
BELLINGHAM, Wash., December 27, 2012 — With its new Topic Guide tool, Logos Bible Software makes it simple for Bible readers to quickly and precisely find everything Scripture says about a given theme or issue. Logos 5’s Topic Guide pulls up key passages, scholarly articles, rich media, lists of verses, and profiles of related people, places, things and events. Logos 5 connects to the Logos ecosystem and Faithlife social network with massive libraries and shared reading plans, notes and prayer requests.
“In my writing for About.com’s Christianity site, I often feature articles on what the Bible says about important topics like fasting and suicide,” says Mary Fairchild, writer and blogger. “In a matter of seconds, the Topic Guide does the hardest part of the research for me, automatically.”
The Topic Guide finds every place Scripture addresses a searched-for topic, and connects topics with their larger themes. It equips users to find passages that expound on areas of interest and to explore relevant Greek and Hebrew words. Other Logos 5 tools include the Timeline, Clause Search, Bible Facts and Sermon Starter Guide.
“Since 2008, Logos has been the starting point for research in almost all of my writing for About.com’s Christianity site,” Fairchild adds. “It’s given me one-stop access to such a wealth of resources, I’m not sure how I managed without it before. Logos simplifies the harder tasks, providing a depth and breadth to Bible study I never dreamed possible. With each new upgrade, the powerful tools just get better. Since attending Bible school nearly 30 years ago, I’ve loved exploring God’s Word. With Logos 5, I’m more excited than ever to study the Bible.”
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 2.3-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.
