So, am I a Bibleworks, Accordance, or Logos user [NB: not a very good pick-up line BTW]? Answer: yes, yes, and yes. On my Mac, I run Bibleworks, Accordance, AND Logos! What can I say? I have moved so many times in the last 6 years that I do my best to make sure most of my library and research resources are online!
What about version 5? Is it worth the upgrade? From what I gather, the upgrade is not really a matter of adding more books to your collection, but using your Logos resources more efficiently and effectively. I am playing around with version 5 now and I will eventually do a more thorough review, but, for now, I wanted to direct you to the short “What’s New in Logos 5” video.
As of late, let me list the top 4 reasons I use Logos
1. Quick access to commentaries, dictionaries, and lexicons.
2. Greek word search of Greek classical literature. Now that Logos has the large collection of Greek texts, I turn to it quite regularly.
3. Images – they have some great pictures and maps for classroom use.
4. Septuagint/MT study – they have some neat tools for finding out what LXX Greek word tends to correspond to particular Hebrews MT words (and vice versa) in a given OT text.
More to come…
