Logos 4 is "Really" Bible Study Re-imagined

Having used Logos 3 for about 6 years getting an opportunity to get on the ground floor for the introduction to Logos 4 was a great experience. Although the first look is nothing like Logos 3, which was a bit confusing on first glance, once you took the time to see what was done you get a great appreciation for the elegance of the interface. Logos has always been very customer centric, but with a distinct eye towards the future. The Logos 4 release provided for some very great improvements with a sleek and elegant interface. The ability to spread windows across dual monitors is a great addition. Logos does give fair warning that the startup takes time, which is due to the massive indexing the program does on your library. The word for word indexing takes a long time, but the value is there when you can have thousands of matches on a search in seconds rather than minutes. There are some functions not quite ready for release, but Logos has created an approximated timetable to get those released. One side note is that Logos was based on the capability of systems around 2 years old or newer to run. I have been running on a 5+ year Dell D505 without a hitch and the speed is fine, so I don't see it as an issue.

All in all, Logos 4 is a vast improvement over Logos 3. I am all for investing in Biblical studies and what Logos 4 offers is a definite plus to anyone's desire to study. So head over to http://www.logos.com/4 and watch the demo and see where Logos can take your Bible Study.
