Open Multiple Factbook Reports at the Same Time

One of the most exciting new features in Logos 6 is the Factbook. It’s an almanac, Bible dictionary, concordance, search engine, and more all rolled into one. You can build a Factbook report for virtually any biblical subject imaginable! Also, within most Factbook articles you’ll discover links to other Factbook articles. When you click a […]

Quickly Discover an Author’s View of a Topic or Passage

If you’re like I am, as you’re studying a topic or passage you’re interested in what a specific author thinks about it. What are A.W. Tozer’s insights about worship? What does John Wesley or Charles Spurgeon say about John 3:16? To zero in on a specific author you want to create author search collections which […]

Hide Chapters and Verse Numbers

As you probably know, chapter and verse numbers were not added to the Bible until the 13th and 16th centuries, respectively. While these numbers certainly help us navigate through Scripture, sometimes they may hinder us from seeing the natural flow of the text as it was originally written. For example, Paul sent to the saints […]

Camp Logos is a Wise Investment

For over 17 years I’ve had the privilege of training users to better use Logos Bible Software through live seminars called Camp Logos. I’m often asked if it’s worth the investment of time and money to attend. As objectively as possible I’d like to answer that question. Yes, I believe Camp Logos is an investment […]

All Resources vs Everything Search

As you well know, arguably the most impressive feature in Logos is the powerful search and retrieval system. Almost instantly we can find practically anything in the Library. You may have noticed when you open the Search panel and set the search type to Basic (A), you can select from the resources to search drop […]

Hide the Hash Marks in the Scrolling Area

A fellow Logos user recently sent me this inquiry: As I’m navigating through resources, I notice hash marks in the scroll bar area. What are they? Can I hide them? Officially, they’re called Auto Bookmarks and, yes, they may be hidden. Think of the Auto Bookmarks as the “dog ears” we make on pages in […]

Copy Highlighted Text to a Word Document

A very common question I’m asked is exemplified in this recent email inquiry from a Logos user: Is there a way to copy and paste the biblical text into a Word document and maintain the highlights I’ve added? Excellent question! The short answer is this: some highlights easily copy / paste while others do not. […]

See All the Places an Event is Mentioned in Scripture

Often times a biblical event is not only mentioned in its original context, but also elsewhere in Scripture. For example, the Israelites being fed with manna is recorded in Exodus 16, but John 6:31 also alludes to it. The fall of Jericho occurs in Joshua 6, but it’s also referenced in Hebrews 11:30. To thoroughly […]

Quickly Mark Up Similar Words in a Passage

A good friend recently emailed me explaining that while studying Philippians in the ESV he noticed the words persecutor in 3:6 and press in 3:12 and 3:14 were all the same Greek lemma. He then asked if there was an easy way to automatically obtain a lemma count as well as highlight the same lemmas in […]

Attach Same Note to Different Verses

As you well know, the same biblical event is perhaps mentioned in multiple places in the Bible. For example, Jesus’ prayer in Gethsemane is recorded in Mathew, Mark, and Luke. Let’s imagine we’re working our way through Mark when we come to the phrase this cup in 14:36. We want to record our insights so we […]
