I am trying to decide if Logos Now is worth keeping or not. I only have my student discount for a few more months. Should I go with Baptist Silver or Gold while I still can? I do not know or make use of original language resources ever. I graduate from seminary in 2 months. What should I buy while i still can?

Hi Josh, 

My only general advice is that if you are going to buy a Base Package you ought to do it while you have both the student discount and Logos Now as that will get you the best price. Personally, I think Base Packages are the best way to maximise your buying power within Logos.

One last thought is that even though you are (I assume) baptist, one of the other BPs at a similar price may have resources which will be more useful to you, so don't only consider those packages.

Just remember that the fine print says that if you buy on the student discount, you can't transfer the resources. If I'd known that when I started, I'd have changed how I did some stuff.

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Faithlife Corp. owes the MVPs free resources for life.

You can only transfer to a student that has academic status

Of course you can transfer to family at that point, it is only transferable to a person with academic discount if you decide to sell it.

What are you planning on doing after you graduate?  That would be the deciding factor on how you should proceed.

A point to consider, concerning the original language usage and resources. Although you do not use them now, there may be a time that you will have the need.

Yes, yes, yes, so true!

Jewish poet, Haim Nachman Bialik wrote that, "Reading the Bible in translation is like kissing your new bride through a veil." There's so much richness of meaning that an ancient reader would have understood, which we miss out on when we only study in English.

Even if you don't use original languages now, there will certainly come a time when you want to do a bible word study, search for other occurrences of a lemma, or be reading a commentary and want to look up a transliterated word you don't know.
