Introducing Logos Bible Software 5

When Bob Pritchett  was 15 years old, he wrote his first Bible software program. He was enamoured with computers and tired of using his mother’s bulky Strong’s Concordance of the Bible. He was convinced computers would save us from heavy reference books, long indexes, and flipping pages!
And all that was true, though it was years before we stopped simply imitating paper books on screen and started to discover what we could do by designing new tools specifically for digital research.
It has been 26 years since the President & CEO of Logos Bible Software wrote his first Bible software, and today he is more excited than ever about how software can help people do more and better Bible study.
He says: "Because Logos 5 is not just “books on a computer.” It is a unique collection of tools and databases that open the Bible for reading, for teaching, and for study. It’s not just pages of text—it’s nearly a million connections between the Bible and years of new editorial work and careful scholarship.
It’s social, it’s mobile, it’s cloud-connected. It works on your desktop, your laptop, your phone, your tablet, and the web. It’s as easy to use as a web page, and it lets you explore more deeply than you can imagine. And it’s here now."
