Pros
The resources are good quality and if I want more they are available. It is easy to use for what I need.
The fact that I can search for a person and it recognizes the pronouns that refer to that person as references is wonderful. It's very intuitive and visually intelligent.
I love the ease of finding a lot of information about a text quickly on one screen. I also enjoy being about to work across my desktop, tablet, and phone somewhat seamlessly.
Cons
The techs are condescending and rude when you ask for help. The software is just beyond frustrating.
The mobile app can be quite unstable even on cutting edge phones.
I can't say I have a different idea of how it should work so this criticism is not significant.

Best Bible/Church Software I've Ever Used

Reviewed 6 years ago

My study of scripture has improved exponentially.

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.

My go-to resource for sermon preparation

Reviewed 6 years ago

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.

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.

Vendor response

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. =)

Difficult to navigate

Reviewed 3 years ago

I'm not very happy with my overall experience. My typical interaction with the help desk or sales had more of a secular feel. In fact, I think typically most mainstream secular companies tend to work a little harder for customer satisfaction.

Pros

The integrated nature of the application. It flows very smoothly across the various resources when researching or studying a topic.

Cons

The cost for usability. I paid $4,500 for the software and wasn't sure I would be happy with it because for many things, while it may not provide the depth of information, a google search is simpler and faster.

Logos is a powerful tool for studying the Scripture and also very expensive.

Reviewed 6 years ago

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

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

Logos is an incredible tool to help you dig deep into the Scripture!

Reviewed 6 years ago
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.
