I’m pleased to announce that Logos 8 is now available for purchase online, over the phone (888-875-9491), and by email (sales@logos.com).

I’m thrilled about what our team has built for you and can’t wait for you to try it. It’s my hope and prayer that you’ll love it and be helped by it in significant ways in your preaching, teaching, education, ministry, marriage, family, personal study, and in all the spheres of influence God has placed you in.

It’s available in English, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Korean, and Chinese.

It’s also launching on desktop (Windows and macOS), mobile (iOS and Android), and the web at https://app.logos.com/. Not all features are available on every platform, but we’ve worked hard to deliver a consistent experience regardless of the platform you’re on, making it easier for you to continue your study no matter where you are and which device you have with you.

The goal of Logos 8 is to deliver better Bible study for the whole Church—regardless of your occupation, your role in your church, your progress in your spiritual journey, your needs, your budget, the language you speak, where you live, or what devices you use.

Our mission at Faithlife is to use technology to equip the Church to grow in the light of the Bible, and our vision is to increase biblical literacy and accessibility for every Christian around the world.

It’s my desire and prayer that God would bless Logos 8 in your life and use it to these ends as it pleases him.

Here are some links you may find helpful as you learn about Logos 8 and its new features and libraries:

As you explore Logos 8 and learn the ropes, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us and let us know how we can make your transition as smooth as possible. We’re available to help you through the following channels:

  • here on the forums
  • by email at cs@logos.com
  • over the phone at 800-875-6467

We’re looking forward to serving you.

What about for Faithlife Connect (Logos Now) subscribers? I got an email about the new features. Thanks! But, what does it mean? Is there an update to the software that comes with the features?

Yes - Faithlife Connect subscribers get access to the Logos 8 software when they install it. Details to get it should be in the email you received.

Email that was sent to Connect subscribers: 

Logos 8 is here, and you can start using the new features before anyone else. Click below to add the new features to your account. You’ll be asked to check out, but there will be no charge to you.

A Big Change to Notes
As a Faithlife Connect subscriber, ordinarily you’d get a major update like this automatically. However, there are big changes to the Notes tool in this release, so we’re giving you a chance to opt in to see the improvements we’ve made.

We think you’ll agree with one Logos 8 beta tester who said, “I love the new notes system—it is faster, allows you to quickly find and organize your notes, and it's all around more powerful.”

On November 5, we’ll migrate all Connect subscribers to the new Logos 8 features.

As a connect subscriber I have not received an email and have never received the monthly connect subscriber email even though I am signed up to receive them,

Likewise.  I've did not receive an email and have never received an email with information pertaining to me being a Connect User.  I do receive other emails from them, but nothing ever about being a Connect User, specifically.

The price you see in your check-out cart should reflect the 25% discount for first time upgrader.

Hi Phil, 

What's the plan for people who were on the Bible Works Upgrade package? 

I've noticed the packages for people who had bibleworks have been modified, but CS are asking for the same price of the package that people who didn't have BW would have, which doesn't seem right to me.

Amy, there may be a problem with the settings. A couple months ago I checked my settings. I was receiving Connect emails but the option was NOT checked. I checked that option and the following month I did not receive my Connect email. I did a reset on my settings and re-selected everything and I am waiting to see whether I get anything this month. But the email preference was definitely inverted.

If you're seeing the message "on sale today," you're getting your 25% off.

Hello Amy:  Sorry...I found mine.  I have it set now to make sure they all come in to my main mailbox.

Have you tried using a different browser (not logged in to your account) to check prices?

Do all formerly logos now subscribers get the upgrade free?  Does this mean that we do not have to pay for the upgrade which gives all of the new features?
