I have used Logos for many years now. It has become a trusted companion in my Bible study, teaching preparation and seminary. You guys have had a rough go of it in the release of Logos 4 and I wanted to tell you that I am thankful that not only are you a great company with a great product but you are clearly a group of people who desire to please God in your vocation. I hope you can all have time in the holidays to enjoy your families. None of the things people are clamoring for are so important that they should keep you from the people who are most important in your life, who are gifts to you from God.

Have a great thanksgiving. I, for one, am thankful for you.

Alright Bob, It's a holiday - this is work for you and goofing off for me.  So go eat some turkey.

Be blessed with your family today.

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.

I was going to post something like this, but you beat me to it, so rather than creating a new thread, I'll just add my absolute agreement to this post.

As I open up Logos4 and go to the Psalms to read and pray, I am thinking about how thankful I am for Logos. 

I thank God for you guys!

I would like to thank the Lord for giving all who work  at Logos the insight and wisdom to develope a product that is truly a blessing to me. I am so blessed by the new Logos Bible Study 4. I have not returned to the L3 due to I want to really learn how to use all the new features in L4. I know this will only get better, but please know and believed you all are loved and appreciated. Thank you for what you do and may the Lord continue to bless you richely.

I started using Logos in 1994, in the fall of 1995 I went to Seminary at 49.  Logos and hard work along with some fantastic professors got me through with good grades.  I could have made it through seminary without Logos but the experience would not have been as rich.  What Logos was in 1995 would look like an Ox Cart to Logos today.  I have been to 5 seminars with MO, and had the privilege of hosting one in Fort Worth, TX when the Bus was going across the  country.  Bob took a leg of the tour and was in Fort Worth.  I had the privilege of eating some great barbecue with him.  I asked Bob why he started Logos. His response was that as a kid his parents required bible study.  Bob who was computer savvy saw a way of making Bible study more in depth and at the same time easier. Today not only the English speaking world but in multiple languages around the world, there is Bible study going on.  There are times that I wish things would move faster, but I remember we have folks all over the world enhancing, creating and supporting those of us who study the Word.  I can't speak for anyone but me but I am thankful that God put it on Bob's heart to use his skill set so that my time in the Word is more in depth and much more productive and also extremely exciting.  To learn something new about this software that I have been blessed with for 35 years is a blessing.  So every time I sit down at my computer I thank God that there is a bunch of folks enabling me to do what I love to do better, dive into the riches of His Word! Thanks Logos, thanks Bob.

I agree. I use logos for 4 - 5 hours every day. Love. Love. Love.

How did you find this thread? It’s almost 12 years old.

I’ve always wondered how people revive a decade old thread.  Did you guys google a similar topic and the thread showed up and decided to comment or did a forum search bring it up? Otherwise it seems impossible to just all of the sudden be able to comment on a thread that’s been buried in pages upon pages of other newer threads.

In my case a google search on a topic has done it, but how did you guys do it? 😂😂😂

@Joe Mayden- I had Logos in the late 90s when I was a young Christian (remember LLS and subsequently Libronix?). I then started my formal seminary studies at a ripe old age of 45 some years ago (also had some modules from my younger days). Without Logos, I would reckon that research and the biblical languages would be much tougher and time consuming. The ability of Logos to search and to integrate various results is like having a very efficient helper for one's studies. Time is a resource that is a very limited commodity for everyone. I am very blessed to have Logos to help me along the way. Very grateful to @Bob Prichett for these years of support.

I find it invaluable. If I were doing my Masters now instead of back in the 90s, it probably would have helped a lot.

I am in awe of this software.  Everyday I discover something new and it just amazes me.  I am very thankful for Faithlife/Verbum/Logos!

Thank you,

To the glory of God, Logos has helped me in so many ways. Going through seminary, it saved me at least 10-15 hours a week when it came to research and everything. On top of that, it allows me to do more in much less time when it comes to sermon prep and other lesson prep during the week. While I *can* imagine what it would be like to do all of this without Logos, I try not to! 

I do love a good, hard-copy of a book in my hands, but the portability and ease of use of Logos makes Logos my hands-down favorite when it comes to Bible study! 

Thank you for such an excellent product!

I’m thankful also, but let’s not forget Logos hasn’t been cheap either. I’m sure most of us have invested A LOT in it.  So thankful first to God for providing the money to buy the software, thank you customers for investing and thank you FL for creating the software and improving it 👍😁👌

I have thanked God for this resource multiple times over the past year...

First, it is amazing that we have the ability to explore His word like this with all kinds of tools that were either not available or manually much more difficult to use just a generation ago.

Second, that we are able to make connections and look things up in a fraction of the time and go deeper in both a vertical fashion and horizontally, seeing how things fit together-- it makes me think of mining new treasures and adds richness for me personally.

Third, that there is a community of people here to help and who are also interested in these things, far deeper and more knowledgeable than I am-- and that the internet makes this possible. Even scholars and professors that I would have known little about unless I spent years looking through public library shelves, limited to what was locally available until I would have discovered and tracked down things. I'm only mid 40's but I remember the paper card catalogs, rooms with typewriters and word processors that you would have to schedule time to write your papers, getting citations "just right" or getting marked down in red ink. What greater breadth and depth and efficiency we have today.

Fourth, and what just hit me was the incredible value that is in the books I have in my library. I was literally just thinking of sharing or sending a hardback book to someone as a thank you and I realized that I own it in Logos, completely searchable and linked for a tiny fraction of what it would cost as it came as part of a set. It's really humbling to think about in these times. I feel incredibly blessed.

I know sometimes there are times that some are frustrated with pricing or resourcing or some minor glitch or such, but I just wanted to pass along this perspective. At whatever level you are using this product, if you have 20 books or 10000 books, you are blessed. What an amazing effort of this company and an amazing gift of God in using technology for His glory. I am often frustrated with the way "the world" uses tech and internet because of the wickedness and sin that abounds. I thank God for this perspective shift this afternoon.

Blessings in Christ Jesus,
<3 Angela
