Over the last year and a half I have been using the Logos Boble software for my personal Bible study, sermon prep., and digital library. I have been almost %100 satisfied with the prodcut that they put out, and I am constantly amazed at the upgrades and downloads that they make available to their customers for free. They are constantly working to improve their product and move it forward. Here is a cool e-mail that I received from Logos on that subject:
Isaiah 40:8 speaks volumes. It conveys more depth and richness of content in fifteen short words than some authors get across in their entire collected life’s works.This powerful declaration reminds us why we are here at Logos. We believe in this verse with all our hearts, and want to do everything in our power to make sure that during our brief time on this earth, we do as much as we are able to advance the study of God’s Word.
You have probably heard the story behind the founding of Logos Bible Software before: A couple of young Microsoft programmers with their entire careers of high-pay and lucrative Microsoft stock options ahead of them, dropped everything to join a partner and risk it all on pursuing their dream.
They weren’t satisfied with using their skills to help businessmen have access to the latest and greatest in technology just so they could be more productive or do better in business…
They wanted more.
They wanted to use those same skills to help God’s people in every walk of life have better access to the treasures of God’s Word.
They wanted to use the latest and greatest in technology to create tools for taking people deeper into Bible study than they ever thought possible.
“Advanced Technology for Eternal Truth”

Want a really cool story to tell your friends?
You probably realize by now that we are passionate about making sure we stay on top of the latest and greatest technology so you will always have the best tools for Bible study right? Well, here’s a cool story you can tell your friends…
When we heard that Microsoft was going to start using a new technology called WPF for Windows Vista we just had to check it out. We wanted experience with this cool new technology to see if it could be used to make Bible study better. Our president had a great idea. He always wanted to have a really simple note-taking program to use at his desk and he also wanted the developers to have experience creating a real WPF application, so he told them to learn all they could about WPF and create an entire application from the ground up with the latest technology.
A little while later they completed one of the first applications ever for Microsoft Windows Vista that utilized the new WPF technology. The app. is called NoteScraps and it is really cool. If you use Vista or XP with .NET 3 you should really check it out: http://www.NoteScraps.com
The best part of this story is that our tiny little application is getting rave reviews all over the world from hard-core programmers who have no idea it was made by a Bible Software company! (several are actually high-level Microsoft employees.) Just do a search for “NoteScraps” and you will see that in just a few days word has spread like wildfire.
Ok, did we say that last paragraph was the best part? We were wrong…
The “best” part of our new secular mass-market technology release is not just the fun of secretly knowing that our Bible Software programmers made something that is being respected and enjoyed by people who would never have anything to do with us otherwise…
The “best” part is knowing that all the money we make selling copies to those same people, who would never in their wildest dreams support a Bible Software company, will go back into making the best Bible Software in the world for you, so someday you can share the treasures of God’s Word with them! 🙂
If you want to share in our little secret and have your own fun, go ahead and “spread the word” about NoteScraps to your local paper or favorite technology blogger/reviewer. Who knows, maybe the money generated from your spreading of the word will be used to “spread the WORD” somewhere else.
We aren’t asking you to buy one thing, and we know this may not be businesslike to say, but why not share our excitement and dream for just one minute with us! Wouldn’t it be so great… if the money spent to buy NoteScraps by Joe, an unsaved soul… went back into making better Bible Software that was used by Larry… to study God’s plan of salvation and witness to his unsaved friend Joe (who happened to have purchased NoteScraps ten years ago)… and God used that to save Joe. –How cool would that be?

Want to let the world know that God’s Word pushes technology to new heights?
Right now we have a rare opportunity to show the secular world in a very public way that we take the Bible seriously and that just because we are Bible Software developers, it doesn’t mean that people who care about the Bible can’t be the best at what they do in any field.
Logos has been selected as a finalist in the WSA (formerly the Washington Software Alliance) “Heroes of Industry” awards for “Consumer Product of the Year” out of more than 1,000 software companies representing a total of more than 50,000 employees.
In case you didn’t know, Washington has a lot of very prestigious software companies. Just take a look at some of the companies that are members of WSA: Microsoft, Nintendo America, RealNetworks, IBM, Lockheed Martin, Accenture, Adobe, ADP, Ernst & Young, Onyx Software Corporation, and Sun Microsystems just to name a few.
Whether we win for “Consumer Product of the Year” or not is up to the official judges, but right now you can let your voice be heard by voting for Logos Bible Software as the “Community Choice” winner.
