Pros: What I love most about Proclaim is that it is so intuitive with the layout and how things are put together. It doesn't take a computer genius to be able to lay out a presentation. Also, the person left to run the presentation during the service needs to know nothing more than how to Progressive slide forward or backward. It's really that simple!

Proclaim is even made it super simple by integrating our work subscriptions, Bible versions in scripture, along with song lyrics within the software. It is literally a one-stop-shop. What used to take me over 2 hours to do in illustrator, Photoshop, and PowerPoint, I can now get done in about 30 minutes and Proclaim.

The customer service is also outstanding! Each time that I have emailed them, I've gotten a reply back usually the same day with a personalized email addressing my specific question. No Scripts or faceless reply to

Cons: One of the things I like least about this software is the dependability of the sinking upload feature. I can work on a presentation at home, and press the sync feature leave my laptop open for a couple hours, and it still won't show up on the church computer several days later. We end up having to share the actual presentation file through Google Drive in order to make sure that everyone has access to the file that they need.

I wish that there was a way that I could actually see the progress of a file being synced and know what it is 100% uploaded and ready to collaborate with.

The other thing that I don't like about the software is that all the art, song lyrics, and in-depth Bible study stuff are all extra subscription cost. Period. In addition to the money that is spent each month on Proclaim itself. For a small church, this can be quite an expense and not everyone is able to pay it.

The church that I attend is about 30 to 40 people on a good Sunday, and they do pay for the Proclaim software, but I end up having to pay for all the artwork subscriptions myself just so that I don't pull my hair out trying to put presentations together. The basic artwork included with Proclaim is lackluster at best.

Overall: Overall, I'm quite impressed with Proclaim. It has changed our worship service by Leaps and Bounds, and made me more efficient getting my work done during the week. There are so many features yet that we have not even begin to scratch the surface on, but I'm excited for the future in hopes that we will dig deeper and begin to use them.

Massive library program that does more than previous giants would have thought possible.

Pros: Logos is really incredible. It places thousands of resources at your fingertips and has them all cross-referenced and indexed. I don't know of another program that has this level of intertextuality built into the program. You can follow links and references to the works they were citing. You can build searches on top of searches. This is a one-stop-shop library program and powerful language tool all in one.

They are constantly upgrading and adding features to keep Logos cutting edge. Their language tools are rapidly catching up to their competitors and there are more things possible that I am even aware of. I probably only know how to use about 15% of this software, but the benefits it brings are astronomical.

I love that they are also expanding into the classics field with Not and other resources. I hope their language tools in Latin will improve to match what they have in Greek.

Cons: Logos is not cheap. At all. All of their resources cost significantly more than what they would cost in print. Add in the fact that I don't like reading on a screen, and I retain information far better when I can deal with the geography of a book, and that makes it a losing proposition. Their bundles inflate book numbers with filler junk that you will never use, and would never want. You will be oversold resources and features that you will never use.

Pros: Logos dramatically cuts down the amount of time I spend writing sermons each week by compiling all the resources I need in one location. Not only that, but with the fairly recent addition of the Sermon Builder component, my message slides can be automatically generated and inserted into Proclaim, Faithlife's presentation software. This saves this small-church pastor some valuable time while still delivering an excellent end result.

Cons: The biggest con with Logos is the price. However, I believe it has more than paid for itself in the last 10 years of ministry.

Overall: It would be hard to imagine my sermon preparation without Logos. From looking up number of occurrences of words, to research in the original languages, to having dozens of commentaries at my fingertips, Logos helps me consistently present well-researched messages in a fraction of the time it would take to do manually.

Sean, thank you for this. We love seeing people take advantage of the sermon builder and its integration with Proclaim. We're working on some great features to take this even further.

Also, make sure you check out our new website builder at https://sites.faithlife.com. If you publish your sermon to https://sermons.faithlife.com, it will automatically appear on your Faithlife Site.

We're trying to remove more pain points for pastors of small churches. We hear you have a few things on your plate. =)

Pros: This review is for Logos Bible Software, NOT for Proclaim

Logos simply has the largest library available for the student. The number of tools that are available are (honestly) overwhelming, but the experienced user can master these tools quickly. It is possible to easily get lost in the weeds with Logos because the weeds are so easily gotten to. However, sometimes chasing a rabbit down its hole is worth it!

Cons: It can easily get very expensive. I would recommend buying sets you want or only investing in a library if just about everything it contains is something you want to add to your library. It may be more expensive to purchase individual books, but you won't get hundreds of resources you don't want/need.

Overall: Logos is great for developing sermons and lesson plans!

by Faithlife Corporation on October 12, 2018

Gregory, thank you for this review. We appreciate it. You're correct. Purchasing libraries is definitely more cost effective than the individual titles.

If you're ever considering a larger purchase, don't hesitate to call in to our team. We're happy to help crunch the numbers and recommend the most cost-effective way to add the resources you're looking at to your library.

Pros: I like the availability and practicality of the material. There are many valuable resources available there. Also, they are always offering new content and it is perceptive that they want to cover many books that are important in the field of biblical studies and theology. There is also a discount program for students, which has been helpful to get essential sources for a less high price.

Cons: More advanced research is still tricky. By contrast, there are many features that are possible to achieve with Bible Works that are not possible in Logos. For example, Logos is not helpful when I want to research specific lemmas and common phrases within the Hebrew Bible. It is still very dependent on traditional, though important, lexicons and theological dictionaries. It is not versatile and dynamic, though. In that case, the advanced reader needs to combine logos with Bible Works. Both are, however, very expensive.

Pros: Love the fact that you can search across all resources and instantly pull those resources up in the links - basically like wikipedia. Saves so much time in searching out important resources. The portability of a library is also great. Being able to pick up where you left off on one device is also super useful. The extensive tools for studying the original languages are also incredibly useful - even if it takes a few hours to learn them all.

Cons: Slows down your computer a lot if it isn't powerful enough. Some things are not as intuitive as could be hoped, but fortunately there are really good Youtube channels to explain how to use it. The mobile app doesn't have/allow for the reading out loud option.

Overall: Financially, buying logos was challenging, but the reward was a great variety of tools. Don't buy beyond what you will use, however. Lot's of things look great, but you'll only ever use a fraction of it.

Pros: Simple, easy to use presentation software. Interface is great for volunteers to help use.

Cons: Connections to the presentation can be slow, causing slide transitions to happen with a significant lag. Limited display options. Inability to insert new slides within a song. Bugs and quirks abound.

Overall: Proclaim is a cloud based SAAS for churches looking to present songs, slides, videos, and more. Part of the FaithLife family of products, Proclaim offers integrations with a number of the other FaithLife products for advanced features. Proclaim will push Bible verse or screen cues to congregants using the FaithLife Logos Bible app. We have found this feature to be clever, but not terribly useful, as most people use the LifeChurch Bible app at our location.

There are a number of quirks in the Proclaim software... it will overwrite songs if you press enter to early when loading a song. Cloud based is great, but the presentation will sometimes lag if the connection to their servers are not strong. Presentation options are limited.

Basically, if you are looking to use it outside of their *exact* intention, your user experience may suffer. However, if you are comfortable in the box that they provide, you will be rewarded with some great presentation software.

Recommendations to other buyers: This is a great platform for a smaller church with limited resources. If you can get past the bugs and know how to work with the software, you will be rewarded with a rich presentation

Pros: I read a book by Randy Alcorn called Money, Eternity, and Possessions about how Christians hoard books and do not get them back into circulation, and I made a decision to build an electronic library instead of the libraries I grew up with as a kid. As a biblical counselor and a passion for discipleship evangelism, this allows me to have reproducible tools at my finger tips and the ability to create quality lessons and materials with hours of work and paying retail.

Cons: Sometimes the pre-pubs can hit without notice otherwise great product.

Overall: It is one of my favorite bible tools for discipleship evangelism and with the latest editions of Jeff Vanderstelt materials, it went over the top!!! Highly recommend.

Pros: Logos opens up a huge world of exploration when it comes to studying scripture, and goes even further with complex highlighting and notation features, sermon editor and prep guides, and more. There is really nothing else like it, and I feel lucky to live in an era where this depth of study is possible at the tips of my fingers. People even just a few short decades ago could only dream of being able to access so much information in such dynamic and "smart" ways made possible by modern technology.

Cons: The biggest drawback is price. It is extremely expensive when you start looking at larger resource packages, and just to unlock all the features of the software. To make matters worse, the amount of different pricing tires and resource packages is dizzying. I understand they want to be flexible for different denominations and offer multiple price points of entry for different budgets, but deciding on a package is quite an undertaking that can take hours to sort out if you are at all worried about spending less than $10,000.

Pros: The way the software developer packaged so many features together on a platform is amazing.

In same manner, the quick search mode is linguistically loaded for beginners and advanced users.

Coupled with suggestions for quick word references is another icing on the cake.

The tracking percentages of respective books is also a side attraction.

Cons: Anyway, there are some features that are needed to be worked upon.

1. If the interactive surface is simplified the more.

2. A program that will be relaunched on the same platform whereby you have logged off is better for continuity in study.

Overall: This product has made me to be more observant of things the more. Especially, all the daily applications that are essential for self development and office organization.

Pros: I really like how much the software team is updating the product every release. The software itself is much better than many alternatives in this space. I really like how it saves the edits you've made to certain song lyrics and allows you to reuse old slides just with a quick search.

Cons: It would be great to have a master template for the look / feel / design of the slides and then build off from it. For now we just named one of the days "Master..." and if you need to pull a song or a sermon slide you just search for that and reuse it. The sermon slides are cumbersome but when you get to know how it works it's not too bad. They finally allowed for lists of words to appear like PowerPoint presentations show them (one line at a time) and that was my biggest beef before. There's still a learning curve.

Overall: Our ministry operates smoothly because of this software. The accessibility from the cloud makes it easy for us to collaborate and get the service in order before we get there on Sunday morning.

Pros: Where to start? The amount of resources at the top of your finger and all in one place? The books, commentaries, and other resources that come with the base package is worth much more than what you pay. They have almost every book you would purchase on Amazon and then you can have those tools open with multiple translations of Bibles, and whatever commentaries you want to use. I write sermons using Logos and they have tools that help with that as well!

Cons: I wish the interface was a bit more user friendly, but I have been told by many they really like it, so it might just be me.

Pros: Logos is a vast software. It allows me to access my library with a few clicks and saves me hours of time in research (or to be honest, it allows me to do research that I would otherwise skip). The functionality of the Logos apps allows me to study on my mobile device even when I am on the road.

Cons: The vastness is also one of Logos' drawbacks. This program huge and there are literally 2 day seminars to teach you how to use it. I will never use anywhere close to its full functionality. It also requires a very fast PC/MAC to run well.

Logos is the most complete application for Bible study.

Pros: -It is extremely easy to use.

-In your library, contains a very large amount of literary resources that provide the user with the best approach to the Bible.

-It has the best known and used translations of the sacred scriptures.

-Contains titles of the most prestigious Christian publishing houses.

-It can be used to develop the tasks of biblical study, be it personal, pastoral or even academic studies.

-The tools you have and the information you provide does not have any other software.

Cons: -If you can mention one aspect to improve this application, without a doubt it would be its price because it can be somewhat expensive for some people. Despite this, it should be noted that the quality of the product is extremely high and that it is worth every dollar invested in this application.

Pros: The Logos App is easily the best Bible app I've ever used. From the early days, with its stiff interface and difficult switching between documents, to now a seamless transition between multiple windows of varying documents. In addition to these latest upgrades that make its UI much more intuitive and like a web-browser, the added functionality of being able to lookup a word in its original Greek or Hebrew language by merely highlighting the word or phrase is outstanding and not found in its competitors.

Cons: Two gripes - (1) No access to the NIV. Understandably a money issue with Zondervan, but still it would be nice to have in its collection of translations. (2) I wish more translations or documents were available offline. When I'm in a plane or somewhere without data, I am stuck with two or three very dated translations.

Pros: The features are fabulous and the quality is excellent. Customer support is great if you need help. The program offers a wide range of resources and information for the user. You can add to the library as you go at your own pace.

Cons: Can be overwhelming to use at first, even for those with some technical background in using software programs. The pricing could be better in my personal opinion so more people can access the program content.

Overall: The benefits of using Logos is wonderful. Once you become oriented to what it has to offer and how to access it quickly - it becomes a gold mine of information to help you in your personal walk of faith, Biblical studies, and to create content to help others.

Pros: Proclaim is typically marketed to churches. It's connections to CCLI song select make creating presentations so easy and fast. You can type a song title and an arrangement and the slides are generated, no need to type words. The whole program had cloud access allowing you to have multiple users who all work on the presentation: a pastor can add sermon slides, the worship leader can add songs, etc. videos, announcements, and YouTube links are simple and everything can be done from different computers. It is even integrated with a function that records sermons and can automatically publish to Facebook, a website or podcast feed.

Cons: The only thing I don't like is that the recordings can not have video added to them. The background library is a bit limited if you don't purchase the additional media packages

Pros: Logos Bible Software is awesome. This is the gold standard for pastors, scholars, and lay persons to study Scripture and discern its deeper meaning. Whether it's the ability to grow and expand one's library or access one's library from pc, phone, and tablet devices, there are so many positives to Logos Bible Software.

Cons: Offering more training that's more easily accessible (e.g. online) would be readily welcomed.

Pros: You receive A LOT of resources depending on what package you buy. You have access to an extensive digital library.

Cons: The learning curve for utilizing Logos is steep. For the amount of money you pay for the software, the free training should be better and more extensive. The IPad app is not fully functional. Most of the resources the give you will go unused because you will have no idea how to use them unless you invest copious hours in the software

Overall: I have access to a plethora of resources to aid me in study and preparation. It would be the equivalent of having a personal research assistant - a very confused and tedious one - but a personal research assistant none the less.

Logos has helped me go deeper not only for professional purposes but also personally!

I work at coffee shops a lot during the week to prep for teachings and sermons and carrying around a bunch of large commentaries or dictionaries really gets old (and attracts a lot of unwanted attention).

Pros: The language tools, in particular the Greek and Hebrew interlinear features that enable you to see what original language words were used, and quickly find their definitions.

I like having a number of commentaries available at the click of the button (much faster than having to pull them from the shelf; and easier when it comes time to move as well!).

Cons: The cost for a good set is very expensive.

Also, sometimes it can be challenging to remember how to do certain functions (such as export verse lists to Word, or execute various search functions).

Overall: It gives me deeper understanding of the Bible as I use the original language tools, and access to great commentaries, bible dictionaries, and other resources all on my computer so I can dive deeper into something I am wanting to learn more about.

Pros: The logos team gets 5 stars for functionality. It has so many features that are extremely useful. For anyone who is studying theology, it is a total must. It needs some training to get used to the software, but it is such a good place to get so many resources in one place and to compare findings. Googling commentaries often leads to personal journals, blogs and Bible Studies, so having a trusted place to find so many resources is like going to the Biblical section in a library. Being able to easily compare Biblical translations is also an extremely useful tool.

Cons: While this software is packed with features, the design is a big old school. It is definitely not intuitive and requires quite a bit of training in order to really get accustomed to the system.

Logos is the premier Bible-study program for the novice to the theologian.

Pros: Logos has been a go-to program for my personal study as a pastor for well over a decade. From their word-studies to the available commentaries, Logos is the one stop shop when it comes to Bible-study applications.

One of the greatest aspects about Logos is they have changed with the times. Since much of my studies and research is not accomplished in my church office, I now can access these tools on my phone, tablet or laptop.

If you are new to Logo, begin with the FREE Logo 7-Basic. I truly believe you will find their resources as helpful as I have.

Cons: Because Logos has so much to offer (i.e., original languages, courses, lexicons, commentaries, sermons, journals and multiple translations), getting to know the flow of the software can be a bit overwhelming at first. However, it is rather user-friendly and intuitive.

Overall: Logos provides all the necessary resources available for accurate and in-depth study of the Bible at your finger-tips. The greatest benefit is having the resources available at any moment on my tablet or phone. This is a must-have tool for anyone studying the Bible for personal benefit, or teaching others.

Pros: Logos is very sophisticated and can do many things. The books that are available for the system are tremendous. You can customize your workspace to suit whatever you are doing, whether it is an original language study or studying commentaries on a topic. Extensive searching functions make it easier to find information.

Cons: Logos is very expensive and it seems that they want you to do a full upgrade every year. It is difficult to use the more advanced functions although simple tasks are easy enough. It consumes a ton of resources on my computer so I cannot have too many things open at one time.

Overall: I have loved this software since I started using it years ago. It is great for preparing lessons and doing in-depth studies. I can't imagine preparing a lesson without it.

Pros: Logos has been a huge help both in my graduate studies and my ministry. The team at Logos has done the hard work of compiling and digitizing a vast library of resources and packaged it in a way that allows pastors and students to find and cite what they need quickly both for academic and ministerial use.

Cons: Logos has a big learning curve for the advanced features. If you are simply wanting to look up a Bible passage and some commentary, it is easy, but if you want to dig deeper into the feature list, it will definitely take some study and practice. I have seen that Logos is highly customizable, it just takes some time to get it set how you want it.

This is the overall best Bible software on the market in terms of books, features, and ease of use.

The customizable workspaces make it easy to set the appearance of the application to suit your specific needs. I have one set up for Greek language study and another for a commentary analysis.

Cons: The price of Logos is well beyond that of its competitors but you get what you pay for. I continue to update the base package but do not expand my library.

Overall: One stop location for all of my Bible study and language tools. It simplifies the process of creating Bible studies and drastically cuts preparation time.

I can select a work and see all the inline search between my library's content and the passage i am reading. I can have so much depth on the translations, maps, culture perspective and political perspective. I really love the Psalms presentation, it let's me search psalms thru authors, themes and more!

Once you open the program it give you a sort of dashboard were there is helpful links to tutorials and special blog themes. Everyday opening Logos is like opening a new piece of mind! I am literally mind blowned!!

Cons: It can be very overwhelming with all the options that it has. It does has some learning curve and i wish it had a night mode in the program it self.

Pros: The number of resources and the features that Logos makes available is astounding! There is just about nothing that you cannot do in terms of Bible study with this software.

Cons: It's a resource hog. I have to close down almost everything else and it still runs slowly.

Each new version (which is often - that's a good thing!) means a whole process of figuring out the cost of the upgrade. Often you have to purchase something else which means it's a constant financial drain - and that's not even thinking about the temptation to buy more resources whenever I use it!

Overall: It is my go-to software when I need to do in depth study.

Pros: If you are starting out in ministry or in depth bible study for other reasons, this software is a great way to gain a large library for a fraction of the cost. The search functions and versatility are amazing. There is a lot that can be done with it so you have to be willing to invest in learning how to use it, but they provide a lot of resources to do that including online videos.

Cons: Packages with larger libraries and more resources are a major investment. Individuals with an already large library will likely not find this software as good of a deal.

Cons: Like with Evernote, I do not see a lot of weaknesses with this program at all. I know local pastors and elders in our Conference who use this program all the time.

Overall: The main benefit I get from this software is knowledge into scripture that I could not gain in other ways, forms, or mediums. I enjoy this program!

Pros: By far the most amazing part of Logos is the ability to transport your library of books with you wherever you go. Their app works well, so you have the ability to read, cross reference, or check something as long as you have your phone. The software remembers where you left off in a book and opens it right back to that spot. The word search feature is helpful, as are the exegetical tools. In someways, there is almost too many things that Logos can do for you!

Cons: The number one problem is that Faithlife is always upgrading the Logos platform and offering you 'upgrades' and 'new packages' of material. Fortunately you previous materials all transfer over the new system, but at times you get confused about what version you have versus what the latest version is and if you have to pay for this upgrade or if it is a free upgrade. This comes from a good place--they are always

Pros: There is SO much that Logos can do. If you are in ministry and spend lots of time studying the Bible, you absolutely need Logos. It enhances your study by a lot. Working with Biblical languages (Hebrew and Greek) are so much easier with Logos. You can even add extra resources to Logos if the basic isn't enough for you.

Cons: I wasn't lying when I said Logos has and does everything. The problem with this is that it runs so, so slow on your computer. Worth the extra patience though.

Overall: This opens a lot of doors when it comes to studying the Bible!

Pros: First of all, Logos has been around for nearly as long as I can remember. I recall my father purchasing Logos in the 80s and they are still pioneering software based Bible study today. Logos offers a few different levels of service depending on the desired depth of study and with each level is included a very extensive library of additional resources that I have found very helpful in year past. Even the free version includes a generous amount of available resources. They have also done a lot of work in recent years to make the software even more powerful and attractive. It also provides a VERY neat new citation tool when you are referencing sources and it will automatically format the reference for your paper!

Cons: It wasn't the most attractive software to use, but what it lacked in appearance it makes up with usefulness.

Pros: Massive amounts of content (unmatched by any other program you could spend money on).

Endless options when it comes to digging into passages. You can look up original languages/word studies/historical content/cross references.

Factbook is like wikipedia for anything Bible. Interlinear ribbon allows you to have more information as you read through passages than most people know what to do with.

The pros of this overall program are too many to list. If you are looking for the greatest tool ever for deeper understanding of scripture this is it.

Cons: This program is not cheap. Even the cheapest level you can come in at is pricy.

It takes a ton of time to really figure out what you can do with this program. There is so many options and helps and books to access, this isn't a load up and run program.

For many people the program might even be overkill. If you only preach every now and then, are not a student of the Bible and hate reading this won't be for you.

Pros: I like the ease of use of this software and the array of features. It makes it easy to make a large number of slides without having to format each individual when creating song lyrics or a long list of points.

Cons: Max video upload is 300 megabytes, which isn't too bad, most of the time you wouldn't need that large of a file. The Program can be a bit laggy at times especially if you don't sync your slides a little bit ahead of your service or program.

Overall: I use proclaim to create slides for church services as well as just a general platform for managing what goes up on the screen during services at our church. Our preschool also uses it to do presentations and activities with their classes

Recommendations to other buyers: This is a great software, but depending on your organization size and service setup you might do just as well with a cheaper and simpler keynote, powerpoint, or google slides.

Cons: Song management UI to make it easier to manage a master list of songs independent of a particular presentation project. Audio recording project history and post-service publishing and review after going off-air and shutting down Proclaim would be a great enhancement.

Overall: Just started using Proclaim for a recent worship weekend where we had a total of five hours of worship with multiple worship teams. Proclaim did the job and more and was very easy to setup and ran flawlessly throughout the weekend - highly recommend this cloud-based platform for flexibility across devices and desktop OSs.

Pros: Logo Bible Software makes studying and Biblical research as easy as Google. It allows you to purchase resources from within the program, then streamlines all of your searches by included all of your digital sources. It also includes several free commentaries that you don't need to pay extra for.

Cons: It's expensive and they really push you to upgrade whenever there is a new version available. They really need to move to a subscription model.

Pros: If you are in ministry and/or spend a lot time teaching the Bible, Logos will be a great tool for you. There isn't a lot that it CAN'T do. There are countless resources available through Logos. It really helps you to go deep in your study without ever leaving your office/home.

Cons: The downfall of Logos being able to do everything is that it runs so slow. Not just the program, but it will cause your computer to run slow as well. It's also not user friendly. I am constantly looking up how to find something or do something on Logos. It can be very complicated unfortunately.

Overall: This is a great resource for studying the Bible!

Pros: When it comes to sermon prep and study, this software is the best bang for the buck anywhere! The amount of textbooks, commentaries, and other resources is unbelievable. There's multiple levels you can purchase. However, even with one of the more entry-level versions, it's better than anything that's ever been available to pastors, professors and students.

Cons: Because it's so robust, there is somewhat of a learning curve. To some, that can be overwhelming. The great thing is that Logos has many tutorials, and even training camps you can attend in person. It's worth the investment to learn it!

Easy to use and can be update by a team anywhere.

Pros: I like that the team can make updates in other locations and not have multiple copies like PowerPoint. I also like that slides can be jumped if necessary. I like that it offers scrolling text at the bottom to notify people without stopping an event.

Cons: The upload function does not work the best. One of the teammates uploads a PowerPoint presentation into it and the system loses all the data and just leaves the right amount of blank slides.

The library of backgrounds just loads them in order of download which makes it hard to find the right one if you have many backgrounds.

Overall: Project slides for events.

Upselling

Cross-selling

Overall: I've demoed Proclaim several times now, wanting to switch our lyric and projection software. I really want to use Proclaim, but it just doesn't seem to fit our needs. They are a cloud solution, first and foremost, which provides some nice integrations and collaborative tools, but it seems to hinder other parts of the software. It's dependent on a CCLI license and SongSelect integration, which adds to already expensive pricing. The software is also focused on upselling you to the other Faithlife products, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but the costs quickly balloon and just aren't reasonable for most churches.
