Pros: I like pretty much everything about this software! It makes studying and sermon preperation so much easier and cuts down on time as well. Its amazing to have thousands of incredible resources in digital form to search with the click of a button.

Cons: The only negative of the software is that some of the features are more difficult to use. There is a fairly high learning curve for some of the deeper methods of research.

Logos is the most powerful and useful Bible software out there.

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.

Logos is feature rich and customizable, but can often be difficult to navigate.

Pros: I love the breadth of features. Commentaries, study guides, word studies, translations. There are so many resources within the software. I never feel like I have to go somewhere else to find more information.

Cons: It's cumbersome at times. With all of the resources present, it can be difficult to find some of them within the software, and also difficult to interact with them. If time is taken to learn all of the processes and shortcuts, it can be done.

It is a simple and complete mobile library.

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: Simple access to various forms of research on any passage of Scripture (languages, dictionaries, commentaries, historical documents, books, etc.)

Cons: There are so many resources to keep indexed and functioning together that it demands a majority of my computer's system resources often "bogging" my computer down or just making Logos run slowly.

Overall: A one stop research tool for Bible study and preparing Bible talks

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: 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.

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.

By far the most robust collection of Bible and Theology study resources!

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!

Pros: My favorite feature is the Strong's concordance implementation, which allow me to study word by word and get the Hebrew and Greek original meaning which can give a whole new perspective to the verses.

Cons: I really cannot find a negative side for the software, I could say it is expensive but I guess its price it is somewhat reasonable for all that it offers

Overall: If you are really into studying the bible, Logos is probably the best software tool at the moment. You get bible translations, maps, images, and a lot of historical data.

I've been using Logos for over 15 years and love the product.

Pros: This software is very in depth and integrated. All library books are fully searchable. The language tools are fairly easy to 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.

The best Bible study software experience available.

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.

Pros: Makes word studies so easy. Makes me a more effective Greek student. Helps me easily decide which versions of scripture to use for certain applications.

Cons: Not visually pretty (not that it really NEEDS to be though...). I think it would be great to add some extra devotionals or preaching stories applicable to various passages.

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: 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.

Great way for spiritual growth, starter packet it's a bit expensive.

Pros: Got the free trial and it's a great way to study the Bible and God himself more deeply, excellent way to compare versions and other books. It's great that you can have that with you on your phone

Cons: The translation comparisons are my least favorite, it took a while for me to get it. some of the 17 books were not what I would of pick. I've only used the free trial, still thinking about buying a packet.

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.

Cons: Price. Though it is not to bad I wish there was a basic version that would be a one time payment and not an monthly fee.

Overall: Great product and is everything you need in your church, however the cost for a small church maybe to much. There are other softwares that will fit the need at a better deal. However I will have to say they are not as good.

Overall: Proclaim has been easy to learn to use. It is full featured and the user interface is very intuitive. They have some extra nice features built into the software such as the availability of pre-made professional slides that can be easily purchased incorporated into a presentation. Also, I think it was genius that they designed the software with the ability to record a sermon and made that feature super easy by creating buttons to the use in your regular playlist to start and stop the recording.

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.

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.

Pros: Easy to get started and fast learning curve. Cloud-based data storage - syncs across all devices - IOS, Android, Mac OS, Windows. Subscription-based pricing - very affordable and high-value feature set for the price.

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: 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
