Here is a new promo from Logos. They are giving away free books in exchange for reviews of their apps. They want an “honest rating and review” for the apps for iOS and Android. This is an interesting way to generate app store reviews, and is not really all that painful.
The first book was The Life of Charles Hodge by Archibald A. Hodge, and today they hit 2500 reviews and started giving away Luther’s Commentary on Galatians. Both books have been widely available as a ebook since Al Gore first invented the Internet, but it is nice to have them in the Logos format. In addition to the older free book, they are discounting another book by 50%. So far it is Fee and Stuart’s How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth and How to Read the Bible Book by Book. Both are worth having although they are widely available in print for a few dollars. Still, if you are looking for some basic Bible introductory material, these are both worth reading.
I read books with several apps (Kindle, Google Books (Play), GoodReader, Kobo, Goodreads, even Stanza occasionally), and I find that the Logos reader is the best of all. They were the first to use real page numbering, the footnote system is the best by far, and the highlighting is amazing. Notes sync between the desktop and the mobile device, so any changes I make are made on either platform.
Logos books can be read with the Logos App, the Vyrso App, or the Faithlife Study Bible.
The promo lasts through October 19, so do your part to help out the team and review Logos in the app store of your choice. More books will be “unlocked” as the numbers grow. While I am hoping for a Free International Critical Commentary set, I do not think that is going to happen.
