Use the coupon code

FSBForums731

at http://FaithlifeBible.com for free access to the Faithlife Study Bible for over a year!

The FSB is specifically designed for the iPad and other mobile devices, like the iPhone, Android phones and tablets, and the Kindle Fire. You can even access it online at http://Biblia.com.

Logos Bible Software users: The FSB was not designed for you! We'd love to have you use it, but we designed it as an easy-to-use tool for everyone who wants to get deeper into the Word. As a study Bible it can't compare with the large library of Bible reference books and tools in Logos Bible Software. But the good news is, it's fully compatible, and even provides links from the study Bible to Logos books with deeper discussions.

You need an account to use the Faithlife Study Bible; it's the same account as Logos.com. If you have a Logos account already, don't create a new one for the FSB.

Are you leading a church or small group? You can use http://Faithlife.com to connect online. And everyone using the Faithlife Study Bible can share notes with any group they choose, with complete control over privacy and membership. (Logos 4 supports the same Community Notes -- look for the new "Community Notes" panel on the Tools menu; control which groups you see notes from using the visual filter button on the resource toolbar.)

Faithlife is still in beta; we'd appreciate it if you held off blogging, tweeting, etc. until it's ready for release. But you should personally invite people you think would like to be beta testers. You can email them a link to this forum post for the coupon code and instructions. Why not invite your small group to use the FSB and connect via Faithlife? Your church is probably already listed at Faithlife.

Want more? Take a look at http://Faithlife.com/whatsnext for the actual PDF specifications created by our user interaction designers and provided to our software developers -- you can see exactly what's coming in Faithlife!

Please post questions or reports on your experience in the Faithlife forum groups. We'd love to hear your feedback!

-- Bob

This makes it a lot clearer for me; I was wondering, especially when the Infographics for FSB were a subset of what I have in Logos.

My early sadness is that Faithlife won't run on my son's iPod Touch because it needs at least iOS5...I was hoping to get him up and running with an electronic bible for church that didn't take as much power as the Logos app...and would work offline, since he doesn't own a Logos package (yet).

In such a case, I personally will create a new account to use FSB.

No use your Logos account, the FSB has many links to Logos resources that need our Logos account. What Bob is saying I think is that it's not designed to work with the desktop. You can use the study notes, but the videos ect. work best on mobie devices.

Well I think it does work on the desktop and I understand Bob in the sense of that heavy-duty Logos users who are seasoned scholars of theology, experts in original languages and knowledgeable of obscure minutae of passages etc. are not the target audience of the FSB.

Your right it does work on the desktop. What I meant was the Infographics and videos don't work as well on the desktop. I use the notes on the desktop as my preferred study Bible. I think it's target might not be the scholar, but with the linking to resources it will prove helpful to wide range of users. To get the most use I think using it in conjunction our Logos account/library gives it the most use.

For me, the Infographics and videos work very well on the desktop - so I'm looking forward to see them work even better, should I ever get a mobile device!

I wonder what happens once the free access expires: Will the Faithlife Study Bible resources be disabled or just not any more updated (unless I have a paid subscription)?

Huh, why not?

Or, are they going to make something similar to FSB for people who work with languages?

As for the why: I assume to broaden the user-base (= customer base of Logos Inc., potential customers of Logos 4/5/6... ) - the FSB is the low-level entry to Logos world that oftens has been asked for. And of course they made it with the usual flavor that generates the need for more resources to get deeper into study for those who are after this.

That's my interpretation of Bob's lines from the original post:

Okay, I see that makes sense. I didn't know anyone was asking for a low-level entry to Logos. So, I guess now both Biblia.com and this new FSB will serve the audience you speak of.
