Bellingham, WA (PRWEB) June 2, 2006
Logos Research Systems, Inc., announced today the release of Logos Bible Software 3, the newest version of the leading software for serious study of the Bible. Logos 3 runs faster, is easier to use, and provides more books, new tools, and a number of freshly-minted resources that are exclusive to Logos Bible Software. The top 100 new features and enhancements in Logos 3 are listed at http://www.logos.com/logos3/100.
“We’ve devoted thousands of hours to building new tools, speeding things up, and giving the interface a new look for Logos 3,” said Bob Pritchett, Logos President and CEO. “With all the new features and resources in the reconfigured base collections, there’s never been a better time for pastors, scholars, students, and laypeople to take their study of Scripture to the next level.”
Logos 3 is easier than ever to use—the software opens to a streamlined home page where the user simply enters a passage, word or topic then clicks “Go!” to launch an in-depth study. For version 3, all major tools and reports have been revised to improve speed and usability. The new Bible Speed Search finds a word or phrase in your Bible as quickly as you can type. The new Bible Word Study report puts in-depth word study within reach of all users: just enter a word and the software looks up the definition, dictionary entries, root words, and generates a concordance showing every use of the word within the Bible.
Other new features enable the user to:
- view graphically the relationships between people in the Bible
- mark up text in Bibles and other electronic texts with 82 different highlighter styles and graphical symbols
- insert bookmarks and view browsing history to quickly return to a passage or book
- instantly jump to the next occurrence of a word within a resource
- and much more!
The newly reconfigured Logos Bible Software 3 library collections have been expanded with new content, adding value to each collection. A new top-end collection—Scholar’s Library: Gold—contains more than 700 Bibles and Bible reference titles worth more than $11,700.00 in equivalent print editions.
Most of the collections now include newly-created reverse interlinear Bibles, such as The ESV English-Greek Reverse Interlinear New Testament, co-published by Logos Bible Software and Crossway Books. These revolutionary, new interlinear Bibles put the English translation on the top line, in normal English word order, making it easier than ever for English-only students of Scripture to study the Bible in its original languages.
Logos 3 also marks the first time that syntactically tagged Bibles are available in a commercial Bible software package. Syntax is the counterpart to morphology—syntactic tagging conveys information about how the words in a sentence relate to one another and helps the exegete understand Greek or Hebrew words in context.
The reconfigured Logos Bible Software 3 language collections such as Scholar’s Library contain three syntactically tagged Bible texts: The Andersen-Forbes Analyzed Text of the Hebrew Bible, OpenText.org Syntactically Analyzed Greek New Testament, and Lexham Syntactic Greek New Testament. These texts are exclusive to Logos Bible Software and are useful to the scholar and to any serious student of Scripture. See: http://www.logos.com/logos3/syntax
