More Great News from Logos Bible Software

As you know, Logos Bible Software has been producing some fantastic scriptural and theological resources for Catholics. I recently received a copy of their Catholic Scripture Study Library, which is an amazing resource. I will be posting about it in the coming weeks, once school is out at the high school where I teach. As part of their continued push into the Catholic market, Logos will be offering collections from Pope Benedict, Scott Hahn, the Navarre Bible Commentary, as well as the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture in the coming weeks.   All of these great resources, when purchased, are seamlessly integrated into the Logos Bible software program. In addition, they are having a giveaway, where you can have a chance to win the entire Catholic Scholars Library.

Also, make sure to check out their new blog, Verbum.

Awesome! It will be nice to see the Ignatius Catholic Study Bible: New Testament added to the resources.

"open only to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia" -- that puts a pin in the balloon for me.

Hello Timothy,

Do you know if the basic Logos' Catechism (for $15) comes with the hyper text capability? Which allows you to click on a note or reference and see the actual text noted. Or do you have to buy the more expensive 9 Vol Catechism Collection (for $ 50).

I can't seem to tell from their website.

I'd love to have that on my iPad, but I can't afford the larger package right now.

Thanks for you help.

Regards,
John

John,

My name is Alex Renn, and I work for the Catholic Division of Logos Bible Software. The answer to your question is yes and no.

The hyper text capability works with every resource you own. Thus if you only own the Catechism, internal cross references will work, but the footnotes will have nowhere from which to draw the original text.

The key thing to note is this means you can buy each resource as you are able and they will link to each other as they are added to your library (however, you will end up paying significantly more for the individual texts). The Catechism Collection is certainly worth the $50 (Individually, the contained resources are worth $130+)

I hope that clarifies everything for you!
