LOGOS BIBLE SOFTWARE
BECOME BETTER EQUIPPED
Logos Bible Software
To help our students be better equipped to complete their degree requirements and to help them be efficient in their study of Scripture, all degree-seeking students are required to purchase Logos Bible Software. Beginning in the fall of 2018, new students will receive a revised package that was built in cooperation with the Association for Biblical Higher Education.
The ABHE Essential Package offers students the full feature set of Logos 8 in addition to a specially selected group of resources, including the entire New American Commentary set (valued at $1,297 in printed materials alone) and the Tyndale Commentaries on the Old and New Testament ($269 value). In addition to the full package, students will also receive the Mobile Ed: Logos Academic Training Bundle ($99 value) which is used in our Advanced Bible Software course.
And CCBS students get all of it for the extremely low price of $300.
Logos users now have the option to download all resources onto a device or to access some resources from the cloud freeing up space on their hard drive. Downloading all resources is the best option and gives the greatest functionality; however, it does require a large amount of hard drive space if you have a significant library. This document explains how to add/remove resources.

Doing Research in Logos
The following 3 videos will help you think through how to use Logos in conducting research for a class paper. First, consider the direction of your paper. Then you’ll need to gather the sources. Finally, learn how to cite your sources correctly.
Step 1: Finding Direction
The first step in writing a research paper is to understand the general discussion about a topic. This video shows how you can use Logos to begin this process.
Step 2: Gathering & Analyzing Sources
The second step is to develop a working bibliography of sources that you need to read and analyze. This video shows you how to gather and begin working through those sources.
Step 3: Citing Sources
The third step in conducting research is knowing how to cite the sources properly. Logos can help, and this video gives a brief overview of how to do it.
