    [quote user="Bob Pritchett"] Almost all of our customers are in ministry; as far as we can tell around 40% of our users are in full-time ministry, and 20% are full-time students, 10% faculty, and the remaining are (mostly) in part-time ministry. It's a small number who invest in a tool like Logos and don't use it in ministry. With that in mind, we try

    [quote user="Edwin Bowden"] I assume that a very large part of the Logos users (if not the majority) are in ministry. [/quote] That's a massive assumption, especially when you consider that the greatest discounts are offered to educational users. [quote user="Edwin Bowden"] My pastor has used Logos for many years. When I was on our church board, I always

    [quote user="PetahChristian"] Paul supported himself making tents, while teaching and engaging with many different communities, and he did it all without technology. My pastor does word studies and other sermon prep with his print library. He'll use a computer to type up his outline, but doesn't rely on bible study software. Of course, he's been doing

    [quote user="Greg Corbin"] I wonder if it might help some feelings if FaithLife offered a discount on base packages or the intital purchase for those in full time ministry? That would provide a discount and entice people to buy in without locking FaithLife into huge discounts as long as a person is a customer. It would also encourage new customers to

  • Re: Logos unsupportive of local church and ministry

    [quote user="DAL"] So the title of this thread is not really appropriate since it's stating something that is not true. Logos does help, maybe not in the way some would want them to help, but they do help. [/quote] There's no argument about the use of Logos. However, that only applies if you can afford it.

    [quote user="Joseph Turner"] I would argue that Logos offers discounts all the time for everyone. You specifically mentioned the sermon builder functionality, and base packages with that functionality have been discounted now for some time. If your question is more about getting extra discounts on top of that, I can say that the academic discount does

    [quote user="Denise"]But I don't subscribe to your front-line imagery. Christians are the frontline. Every day, every hour.[/quote] True, but most don't carry the need to prepare sermons, teach nor engage with the community on the level a church minister would in his parish.

  • Logos unsupportive of local church and ministry

    I recently enquired whether Logos offers discounts for those in full time ministry, after all they are on the frontline needing to preach sermons and teach their congregations as well as interact with their community. Logos as a resource would be wonderful. However, the response from Logos was that they do not offer a discount for full time ministry

    [quote user="MJ. Smith"] It sounds like you've done a solid analysis of what meets your needs. That is a major step in being the happy (or resigned) user of any software. I do hope that you periodically try features potentially useful to you for speed and internet requirements as these are always changing and may change your analysis over time. [/quote

    I've been using Logos since the Libronix days. Each year the price increases and I now purchase very very little. People tend to think because the company is selling Christian resources that there should be little profit involved. Logos is a business and therefore part of its objective is profit. I've been part of many "Lifetime" memberships, but these

    I find a lot of applications suffer from memory leak. Safari is the worst. If it's left open for a number of days it can be using over a 1GB memory. I've not tested L6, but might try it. So the upshot is that L7 is no quicker. Is it slower?
