Logos 6 Platinum remains unrivaled in its category, with certain meaningful upgrades from Version 5, especially in language research/study (which as a layperson, I don't often use. I upgraded for the new data base / engines, plus additional resources.) Consequently, a base package (preferably Gold or above) has become almost essential for any person in seminary or expositional pastoral ministry. However, that does not mean the program/package does not have its drawbacks. As a retired consulting scientist, I was exposed to a wide variety of software programs. For all its power, Logos does a mediocre to dismal job of releasing that power to the end user. The lack of an in-house comprehensive manual, either on-line or hard copy, is stunning. Faithlife/Logos has spent a fortune to build a "Ferrari", and when finished, failed to give the driver the "ignition key". The on-line tutorials/examples are OK, but somewhat disjointed and no substitute for a comprehensive, well-indexed manual. At a minimum, manuals such as those offered by third party Morris Procter should be included in any base package. Many useful features remain undiscovered or unused, especially by new users, simply because of lack of documentation. (Did all the programmers come from Microsoft?) This raises another point, that is not so much a design flaw, but rather a design "incomplete". The tips, often by users or the Morris Proctor column are great - but why are they necessary? Many of these multi-step manipulations to "make" the program do what the user wants could/should have been developed and pre-programmed into a dictionary of one-click applications, or even user-defined reusable applications. (For example, think MS Excel, Adobe Photoshop, or various CAD programs). Complex manipulations in Logos are certainly not all intuitive, especially to a new user without a manual. Consider also that many of the users do not have an extensive technical or computer science background - the old adage "Make it so you mother could do it" applies (however recognizing that there are now many "tech savvy" moms). As to the resources, it is of course most cost effective to upgrade by base package. However, the coverage is still somewhat uneven, driven by the publishers and their contracts with Logos. For example, one would think at the Platinum level one would get the Expositor's Bible Commentary (at least the old edition) or perhaps the John Phillip's series, or portions of the NICOT, NICNT, or Baker Exegetical Commentary NT to sample. The enumeration or quantification of resources is somewhat spurious, as a journal issue is counted the same as a large commentary volume, and the subsequent retail valuation suspect. Most of the base packages contain many old or historic publications (many in the public domain). Some are available on the internet for no charge. (That is not to say they are not useful, but rather I garner the sense of package "inflation" by including so many.) As an aside, I have noticed many of the add-on packages exhibit similar unevenness (e.g. The Dwight Pentecost package, which fails to contain his seminal work "Things to Come"). However, taken as a whole, this package contains a vast amount of resources, which can be augmented when necessary. Do not misunderstand, I think the program is exceptional, and brings Bible study to another level. I highly recommend it. It is simply that with more work, and some cases minimal effort, it could be even better. For that reason, especially the manuals/documentation, I subtract one star in the rating.
