This is it: The year you’re going to do deeper, more engaging Bible study. Oh, and it’s also the year you’re going to spend more time with family, exercise five times a week, consume vast amounts of kale, start writing that novel, and, if there’s time, achieve world peace.
While you’re pretty much on your own with the majority of these resolutions (especially that kale one), there is a way you can do smarter, more insightful study and save hours of research time (freeing you to spend more time with family). The answer is Logos 7 — Faithlife’s newest, most advanced Bible software, and it’s one of the best investments you can make this year.
Instead of exploring mere words on a page, Logos 7 opens your study to an entire world of new insights. Gain a greater understanding of the biblical world and ancient nuance, save hundreds of hours of study time with smart search tools, and dig into original meaning with Greek and Hebrew tools.
With Logos 7, you can:
1. Better understand the biblical world
The Bible is filled with imagery and cultural references that were meaningful to the ancient Eastern mind, but get lost in translation when trying to make sense of them today. In order to truly understand Scripture, you have to wrap your mind around the cultural perspective from which it was written. That’s why Logos 7 comes with with smart, visually appealing tools designed to help you contextualize Scripture and derive greater meaning from the text.
With Logos 7, you can reveal obscure cultural concepts in the Bible with a click, connect Scripture to ancient literature, explore 3-D flyovers of ancient places, connect biblical narratives to their geography, and more. Powerful tools like Atlas, Cultural Concepts, and Ancient Literature make the biblical world come alive.
To take advantage of all these tools, get Logos 7.
2. Save hours of study time (and take back family and friend time!)
Do hundreds of hours of research in minutes. With Logos 7, you can search any verse or topic—like marriage, prayer, or grace—and get all the relevant commentaries, reference works, and media resources you need to get started.
Logos 7’s smart search tools help you find exactly what you’re looking for: get instant information on biblical people, places, things, and events, easily connect biblical topics with history’s greatest sermons, sweep through your massive, interconnected library in seconds, and link what you’re studying with the best dictionaries, commentaries, and lexicons.

3. Derive greater meaning from the Word
The Bible wasn’t written in English—it was written in Greek and Hebrew. And there are many Greek and Hebrew words that have a myriad of foreign meanings. For example, the Greek and Hebrew word for “house,” can mean a physical house, a family, a group, or a temple. When we better understand Scripture’s original languages, we can better understand Scripture. And regardless of your background, Logos 7 makes Greek and Hebrew study accessible to everyone.
With the Sense Section, you can see all these meanings of a Greek or Hebrew word, and go straight to where they occur. Search Greek and Hebrew lemmas in your Bible with Inline Search, learn to read and write Greek and Hebrew with interactive tutors, see every lemma’s form and frequency with Morphology Charts, and explore textual differences across ancient manuscripts with Textual Variants. New tutorials also show you how to use interlinears, so you can do insightful original-language study, even if you haven’t had formal training.
Gain a greater understanding of biblical meaning with Logos 7’s powerful original-language tools.
