The Batmobile of Bible study: Logos Bible Software 6

Logos Bible Software 6

I’ve received a few emails and comments about the tools I use for Bible study, and with the new launch of Logos Bible Software 6, I figure it’s time to give credit where it’s due.

A lot of research goes into this site, and without Logos Bible Software, it would be way out of my league. I’ve yet to find a better, cooler, higher-tech tool for this kind of stuff—it’s the Batmobile of Bible study. And now that Logos 6 is here, the coolest thing I own just got a little cooler.

I know a lot of you Bible geeks are doing similar Bible studies yourselves, so there’s a good chance you’ve heard of Logos. I just want to give you my take on it. It has its pros and cons, but overall, I’m really happy with the newest version of Logos.

How about I give you a little tour?

Before I launch into a full-on review of Logos 6, let me get a few things out of the way.

  • I hate fine print, so I’m telling you up front: I’m an affiliate of Logos. That means if you read my review, decide Logos 6 is right for you, and purchase Logos, they give me a kickback.
  • Logos 6 isn’t for everyone. Like the Batmobile, it’s too expensive and high-tech for most people.
  • But if Logos 6 is for you, I can get you a sweet discount.

I really think a few of you Bible geeks should get this tool. Like I said, it’s the coolest gadget I own. But remember: I’m calling Logos Bible Software 6 the Batmobile of Bible study—not the Batman. Why? Because like the Batmobile, Logos 6 is a force multiplier. Continue reading…

Who are the main characters of Genesis?

If you were to ask yourself who the main characters of Genesis are, Adam & Eve, Noah, or Cain & Abel might jump to mind. But who does the first book of the Bible really talk about the most?

Hint: none of those five are even in the top ten!

I took a look at how many times each person in Genesis is mentioned by name. Sometimes characters are called by several different names, and I joined those counts together. For those who are curious, I also added what each name means.

A few of the results surprised me. Take a look at whose names show up the most in Genesis.
