Pros: Logos allows me to write sermons with greater depth in less time by bringing all my resources in one place. With the recent addition of the Sermon Builder and integration with Faithlife Proclaim, my workflow has been streamlined even further as I can now write it, build slides, and export them without ever having to leave Logos.

Cons: It is pricey. I was able to purchase it at a significant discount while a student, but it can get expensive quickly. I would still say it is worth the investment!

Overall: Helps me deepen my walk with Christ, my messages, and recover my time.

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.

Love Logos!

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: 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: This is just the best program to study the bible. I love how my favorite books of theology, Bible dictionaries and commentaries are all in the same place. 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.

Overall: There is never a dull moment using this program

This is a very powerful tool!

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: Searching ability is super intuitive, as a newer pastor I needed something fairly simple to use to find things in a hurry and Logos made that simple.

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 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: I used the Catholic version of Logos (Verbum). Not only is it first-rate Bible software but it also provides in-depth access to the writings of the Church Fathers and great theologians, saints and mystics from throughout Church history!

Cons: Not always the most intuitive interface. Would like to see better online help features and tutorials.

Overall: My study of scripture has improved exponentially.

Pros: Who doesn't like having their entire library right at their finger tips? 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). But with Logos, I can have my entire library sitting right in my lap!

Cons: Sometimes Logos moves a little slow and feels a little glitchy, but overall the product is fantastic!

Pros: The Logos software is easy to use, possesses good support, and the cloud based environment means that you can use it anywhere. Being able to add more books to your library as you go is a great investment that yields great fruit. The software creates efficiency in the sermon crafting process.

Cons: If there were one thing to change it might be that the user manuals were included in the cost of the software.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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: 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.

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: - Vast libraries available

Overall: Faster/deeper study of passages that I'm teaching/preaching on.

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: I like that I can access what I want whenever and wherever! I like that I can set goals, read daily devotionals, and have access to books that I would typically have to purchase individually.

Cons: The least I like about this software is the efficiency in reading scripture as far as keeping track of where you last read.

Overall: Growth!

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: Logos offers a massive library. I have books on every area of theology at the tips of my fingers. I love being to open large works on my laptop, phone or tablet.

Cons: The languages tools, though I'm told they are excellent, are very difficult to use. I've had logos for four years and I still don't know how to use most of it.

Overall: I love the library!

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.

Pros: I like the ease of use and the package deals that are available for this software. I do believe it is the most updated software for church presentation on the market.

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.

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.

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
