As I try to create appropriate layouts and workflows for Logos newbies using Logos Bible study "workbooks" or the methods described in particular hermeneutical books or for a devotional start to the Logos day, I keep finding a number of obstacles that require only small Logos tweaks to improve dramatically.

As you can capture only what we do not what we want to do from the cloud traffic, I suggest that you offer a free resource in exchange for a screen shot of a layout for a specified task along with a description of workflow,  what works well and what is an unhappy compromise. Examples of layouts you might ask for:

  • morning devotional
  • participant in Bible study using a Logos "workbook"
  • participant in Bible study using a Logos "how to book"
  • preparing a Bible study on a set of lectionary readings
  • preaching a topical sermon
  • detailed study of a book of the Bible
  • academic paper on a particular pericope

Yes, the free resource (or choice of) would need to be valuable enough to get a variety of participants - lay, seminarians, academics and clergy; new and seasoned Logos users; cross-section denominationally ... but its still cheaper than setting up a lab and flying people to Bellingham.

Edit: P.S. You could even use the best practices in blogs.

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

It's fun to spend other people's money MJ. I like your thinking. If Logos offered free resources in exchange for sample layouts I'm sure that they would receive a plethora of responses.
