Update now to the Logos 7 platform with Logos 7 Basic.

Logos 7 Basic is the free version of our Logos Bible Study application, allowing you to try a limited-feature version until you’re ready to get the fully-featured version of Logos 7. With no credit card required, you can get started with Logos 7 Basic today and enjoy a few of the features we’ve included, as well as select datasets, books, and other resources*.

If you’re on a previous version of Logos, Logos 7 Basic will update you to the Logos 7 version of our software. While Logos 7 Basic is not the full-featured version of Logos 7, it is an application version update, with a few additional datasets and resources added in.

*The features, datasets, and books provided in Logos 7 Basic are “access-only”, which means you have access to them, but do not own them permanently.

When you’re ready to get the full-feature version of Logos 7, along with a Logos 7 library, all you need to do is upgrade to one of your options here.

Tell a friend—Biblical insights are within reach!

Bible software can be expensive and can feel out of reach for many potential customers, and getting started with a complicated tool can be intimidating. You can feel good about recommending Logos 7 Basic to family and friends and introducing them to digital Bible study.

Cost. Logos 7 Basic is a great way to introduce your family and friends to the digital Bible study you love, at a price within everyone’s reach—FREE!

Simplified. Logos 7 Basic is a limited-feature version of Logos that will help those you care about get comfortable with using Bible software. Plus, we include a free course on how to use Logos, right inside the software.

Accessible. With our desktop and mobile apps, Bible study is always within reach because Logos 7 Basic works on Android/iOS tablets and smartphones, and Mac or PC desktop computers.

Email a friend today and recommend Logos 7 Basic, and help them put Biblical insights within reach.

Milkmam, true!

That's the remains of a church built maybe 400 years ago, at the end of a dusty road 2,000 miles long. The single missionary in the middle of nowhere was expected to be well versed in construction. And so, last week, a truly bored park ranger sat discussing with me the various construction talents of 3 example missionaries, complete with the challenges of foundational geology, load-bearing walls, and the rear angle of the worship hall (a hair more than 90 degrees). Quite amazing.

Yes, this is great. I'm going to write a post on my blog; I think Logos can definitely attract some more users with this.

I agree, and it even includes a KJV, which is our default translation. I may be able to get some of our members interested.

Yes, Tools menu has seven items in light grey that are not usable. Basic package(s) enable functionality for many items in 30 Day Training => https://www.logos.com/30-day-training (with four Documents not being usable: Morph Query, Sentence Diagram, Sermon, Syntax Search)

Thankful for two Basic packages => Basic and => Verbum Basic that enables a number of features, which could be followed by purchase(s) and/or rental(s). Access-only resources with temporary license has no effect on dynamic pricing for future purchase(s).

Before I go plugging this everywhere, I do not wish to mislead. Does this sentence mean that a feature or resource may randomly disappear in a month, or without warning?

I'm sure FL will chime in, but it is my understanding "yes, but no." I was led to believe that this is an introduction to the platform. It wouldn't make sense to randomly delete things. The primary thing to note is that you don't actually own any licenses for these resources, and consequently, you won't receive dynamic pricing for them in the future. 

One thing which wasn't clear: Will these resources be made available to the user on mobile?

As usual, either a sloppy presentation or misleading.  According to the above, if we switch from Logos 6 to Logos 7, we lose the Atlas, Bible Sense. Timeline, Passage Analysis, and Pronunciation.  I certainly won't be taking that step until such time as that's cleared up for us.

No, you don't lose them if you had them in L6.

The diagram KS4J showed above indicates what your get if you didn't have any package at all previously

No, that's a misunderstanding of how licensing works. Since you already own those features, you will still own those features when you upgrade to the free Logos 7 engine.

Logos 7 Basic doesn't remove any features you already have. It adds features where people who did not have Logos had none.

This is great!

I've posted a link to it to my Facebook feed, and on a private Facebook group for pastors (only) in my denomination (the Christian Reformed Church).

Logos 7 Basic is a very nice way to allow people who are using the many free engines that provide limited (usually public domain works) library packages to experience a system that will match their current use, put also provide features and a potential library that they have not experienced. I have been using Logos since version 3 when it was available on CD with a library of resources that matched a particular interest and didn't have a particularly high purchase price. The first package I bought demonstrated the usefulness of the Logos system and I purchased other packages that addressed my particular interests. Logos 7 Basic will provide the same opportunity to those who missed the Logos 3 era.

A Pocket Lexicon to the Greek New Testament is listing as new to me despite I having logos now and a logos 7 base package.  Why is that?

The Pocket Lexicon to the Greek New Testament is not bundled with Logos Now, or a Logos 7 library.

It is really new to you, since you don't already own it.

It would have been less confusing if Basic was a subset of a higher tier, showing you owned everything, but FL chose an inexpensive lexicon that doesn't happen to come with any other L7 library.

PetahChristian answered well, but for clarification: If the use of an item is acquired via a LN membership, it should still show as unowned on the product page because you don't own it
