Verbum | Installation Guide

Please use the instructions below to download Verbum. If you haven't purchased a Verbum library yet, you will want to do so in order to make fuller use of the software's tools and resources. If you're upgrading from an existing version of Logos Bible Software, there is no need to uninstall first. Simply enter Set Verbum to Yes in the command bar. For the additional information about the upgrade process, look here.

Please Note: The links below will install Verbum, a separate application from Logos. These will run side-by-side, if you do not uninstall Logos. If you already have Logos, no additional installation is necessary. Simply restart Logos and ensure that Verbum mode is turned on (You will see the Verbum logo on the home page). If Verbum mode is not turned on, type: "Set Verbum to yes" in the command bar to enable it.

Step 3: Sign in to your Account

Now that installation is complete and you have opened the software, you should get a "Sign in" window. Sign in with your Logos.com email and password (If needed, you can reset your password here).

This is where the software will identify your account and prepare to download your unique library. This includes any additional purchases you've made at Logos.com and any Libronix DLS products you've activated or unlocked in the past. This also includes any notes, or other saved documents you may have previously created in Logos on another computer or device.

Upgrading from Libronix DLS? If this is your first time installing Logos, and you've been using Libronix DLS previously, you may want to Synchronize your Libronix DLS licenses before continuing. Just open Libronix DLS and go to Tools | Library Management | Synchronize Licenses and follow the prompts. This ensures all Libronix DLS content is recognized by the Logos server.

Step 4: Preparing your Library

At this point, the newly installed program will start with two automated processes:

  1. Preparing or downloading your library. This process requires an internet connection as it is pulling up all of your past licenses and downloading the corresponding book files to your computer's hard drive.
  2. Indexing your library. During this step, no internet connection is required, but the computer must not be turned off or put to sleep until it is complete. For more information about indexing see the indexing training page.

Download & Indexing time will vary according to the size of the library being downloaded and indexed. Please allow extra time for larger libraries.

You will not get full search results until the indexing process is complete.

After indexing is complete, Verbum will be completely configured and ready to use. If you need to install to another computer, please repeate these steps on that computer. It is recommended to install to only one computer at a time, to improve download speeds.


If you need further assistance with installation, our Customer Service department would be glad to help. Please call 1(800)875-6467, or email support@logos.com.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: What is "Verbum" and how is it different from Logos 6?

A: Verbum is the Catholic version of Logos Bible Software. It is functionally the same application, but provides a primary focus on specific resources and information for Catholics in addition to any other Logos products that are owned.

Q: Now that I’ve installed Verbum, what’s next?

A: The Verbum Desktop application is a very large and expansive research tool, but you can quickly search your entire library right from the Home Page. Simply, enter a passage or word you wish to study, then click “Go”. You’ll get results from your entire library almost instantly, including your top Bibles, Commentaries and other reference works.

Q: I’ve got a good handle on basic use, but I know I’m not using Verbum to its full potential. Where can I learn to do more in Verbum?

A: Remember, since Logos and Verbum are functionally the same, Logos Training can be a powerful tool for learning Verbum. First, check out the Verbum 360 Training videos. You can also find a lot of great training materials right here at Logos.com/Training. Or, for more advanced, interactive training, we would highly recommend visiting Camp Logos with Morris Proctor.

If you can’t make it to camp, Morris provides DVD versions of his fantastic training seminars to follow along at home!

Q: Is there a place where I can talk about Logos with other users, share tips and get help along the way?

A: Yes! We have a very active community in our Forums, where you can chat with long-time “Power Users” and laymen alike.
