Anyone have any comparison for using Roam Research for Bible Study vs Logos? Seems like Logos does a lot of what Roam does...

I've never heard of Roam until you mentioned it.  After checking it out, I think if one wants to use Logos as an app for Bible study then it works great.  Roam seems to be geared more toward all aspects of life.  I use Evernote as my main note taking app but keep all of my Bible study, sermon prep, etc. notes in Logos.

Well, I had read a post on The Sweet Setup how a writer uses Roam for Bible Study... seems interesting

Bill Cook:

That is an interesting article. It could help one develop some best practices for using Notes in Logos. In a strange way Roam Research reminds me of Houdini - the first hypertext note system. It seems to me that the main differences between Roam and Logos are:

  • Roam provides a graphic interface for its web ... something I would like to see in Logos even if just on its own datasets such as Biblical cross-references and commentary influences (references by author)
  • Most of the structure of Roam notes can be had via the disciplined use of Logos
  • Logos provides a vast base of texts and dataset which serve as a base for notes rather than having to import all such data into the notes.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
