“Just Looking” with the Bible Browser

Like many Christians during this season, I’ve been rereading the Christmas story in Matthew and Luke. Of course, in Matthew we find the Magi visiting Jesus at some point after his birth. Famously they testified, we saw his star when it rose. Without getting into the specifics of what the star may have been, I […]

Create a Slideshow with Sermon Editor

As you well know Logos Bible Software is huge with many features. Depending on your wants and methods of study and lesson preparation, you may not need all that Logos has to offer. So I always tell people at Camp Logos, Use what you need, but always try to explore more available options. You may […]

Send an Outline to a Sermon Document

In Logos 7 standard base packages Gold and above, you’ll discover numerous sermon outline books. While I’m not a big fan of “borrowing” other people’s messages, sometimes we may come across an outline that we want to use as a skeleton for a sermon, lesson, or devotional. There’s now a feature in our software that […]

Slides and Outline Views in Sermon Editor

I certainly hope you’ve discovered and are enjoying the Logos 7 Sermon Editor! This “multi-document creating word processor” continues to expand with new and improved features. The recent release of Logos 7.10 contains 2 big new enhancements: Slides View and Outline View. To view (and subsequently export) just the slides in the document: Click the […]

Create a “Lesson Template”

If you’re a preacher, teacher, or Bible study leader you probably have a fairly consistent approach to study and/or preparation. In other words, you may go through the same steps of lesson development each week. For example, I personally follow my methodology called the I-Beam of Message Building. Toward that end, I’ve been asked numerous […]

On the Search panel menu resides the option to Match all word forms.  With this feature selected, a search for faith also finds faithful, faithfulness, etc. […]

Save a Concordance Resource

One of my favorite Logos 7 features is the Concordance which allows us to conduct a word count, develop a lemma list, and much more. As I’m sure you’ve discovered, a few minutes are necessary the first time we create a Concordance report for an interlinear Bible. And since only a select number of resources […]

Open Logos the Way It Closed

I recently received this question from a fellow Logos user: I’m often in the midst of my study when I have to close Logos to move on to other tasks for the day. Is there a way to open the program to the desktop arrangement I had when I closed the program? The answer is […]

Locate Hymns Based on Author, Title, or Lyrics

Last week’s blog answered a user’s question on how to find hymns based on a Scripture reference. Today, using a feature called field searching, we’ll locate hymns written by a specific author, with a desired title, or containing certain words. If you’re looking for a hymn, give this a go: Click the Search icon in […]

Locate Hymns Based on a Passage

My mentor years ago told me that outside of the Bible, one of the most important books to have in my library is a good hymnal (or 2 or 3 or more!). In light of that I was thrilled to recently receive the following question from a fellow Logos user: Very often hymns are based […]
