The newest version of Logos Bible Software is here—Logos 9! Discover all the new features that will help you do the work of ministry—without the busywork.
Before we were a fully-fledged publishing house, Lexham Press had its roots as a creator of digital resources for Logos Bible Software. As we’ve grown and our vision has expanded, we haven’t lost sight of this foundational relationship to innovation. Building digital-native resources designed for and integrated into the most advanced Bible software platform gives us the flexibility to do whatever works best for a given project and audience.
By designing digital-first resources, we are able to reimagine how to help you do what matters most: studying, teaching, and preaching God’s Word.
A redesigned Factbook
The databases that power Logos Bible Software gave us exhaustive coverage of the Bible while providing clear answers to crucial questions. In Logos 9, the power of that underlying data is integrated into the completely redesigned Factbook. Look up biblical terms, lemmas, specialized theological terms, manuscripts, and so much more. Each Factbook entry starts with a succinct overview drawn from authoritative biblical resources like the Lexham Bible Dictionary.
Lexham Context Commentary
The Logos digital platform also gives us the opportunity to build inventive resources, like a commentary series unlike any other before it—the Lexham Context Commentary. This brand new commentary guides readers through the literary context of the Bible, especially the contextual thought flow at each level of a book’s organization. The Lexham Context Commentary is like a heavily annotated outline of the entire Bible. Zoom in as close—or out as far—as you want, and you’ll never take a verse out of context again.
The New Testament volumes in the Context Commentary were released earlier this year. The upper levels for the entire Old Testament were shipped with the new Logos 9 Libraries. The remaining content in the OT will be shipped once it’s completed.
Connecting the dots
These innovative resources are perfect examples of using technology to make God’s Word more approachable and more understandable. And since we’ve been creating these resources for years, there’s a wealth of data to draw on to continue building new, cutting-edge resources and tools. That’s one of the overarching themes of Logos 9: connecting the dots between the data and the tools and features you use in your study.
We’ve created brand new research lexicons to leverage some of the unique information that’s only available in Logos. These new lexicons have been specially designed with full definitions for words rather than merely translation equivalent glosses. Building on the various original language datasets we’ve created over the years, the Lexham Research Lexicons pull all that information into once place, making them an excellent starting point for language research.
The Bible Book Explorer and the Greek Grammar Ontology are other examples of pulling data together in new and convenient ways to give you the tools you need to complete your study.
The freedom to develop groundbreaking digital resources is a cornerstone of Lexham Press’s DNA. This allows us to develop the tools we’ve always dreamed of—uniting publishing and technology to equip the Church to grow in the light of the Bible.
