Workflows in Logos

Logos on a computer Workflow

The Logos Academic Blog is committed to helping scholars, pastors, and students of the Bible do their work with more efficiency and enjoyment through the use of the very best technology available today. To that end, we are reposting a helpful article introducing Workflows, a new feature that is part of Logos 8.


Something powerful happens when we study the Bible for ourselves. Familiar stories become richer, old truths more meaningful, and new discoveries change our lives. And at Faithlife, we want you to experience that for yourself.

That’s why when we made Logos Bible Software 8, we challenged ourselves to create new ways for you to take the next step in your Bible study, whether you’re a Bible scholar or are just beginning to study the Bible for yourself.

And that meant making Logos easier to use than ever.

Introducing Workflows in Logos

In Logos, you’ll find step-by-step instructions for every type of Bible study.

Choose your study goal—like personal devotions, sermon prep, or exegesis—and Logos lays out the books and tools to use each step along the way. We don’t just give you what you need, we explain how to use it.

Even if you know the steps you need to take in your Bible study, you’ll appreciate Workflows in Logos. You’ll discover books and tools you didn’t even know you had, and perhaps most exciting, you can create your own workflow from scratch. You can even share your expertise by making that workflow public.

Clean, simple organization

From the moment you open Logos, you’ll find clear ways to jump right into your Bible study. The redesigned Home Page provides quick links to your favorite workflows in Logos, reading plans, layouts, and other resources central to your study.

We’ve improved Notes, making it easier to organize your thoughts and capture insights on a biblical passage or resource.

The same goes for your books and documents. Whether you’re looking for that passage list on prayer you made three years ago or a solid commentary on Romans, you’ll find it in a few clicks thanks to Logos’ clean, simple organization.

Theological study made simple

Logos has always been great for studying the Bible. And now it’s great for studying theology, too.

Look up a doctrine like “atonement” and the Theology Guide gives you quick links to relevant Bible passages, excerpts from your systematic theologies, and other key information.

Even better, you get a detailed overview of the doctrine with the new Lexham Survey of Theology. This comprehensive resource covers over 230 theological topics and features contributions from Fred Sanders, Gerald Bray, John Frame, and other theologians.

A new way to visualize biblical truth

Everybody has their favorite way to work the biblical text. Some highlight, others underline and circle, and some take notes. Others go the extra mile and diagram sentences and do detailed outlines of the passage.

Whatever your style, with Canvas in Logos, you get a set of easy-to-use tools to help you mark up, outline, and create beautiful images based on Scripture

Workflows in Logos means deeper Bible study for everyone

Take a look at everything new in Logos 8, and let us know what you think. We’re confident Logos will make your Bible study easier and even more rewarding, whether you’ve been studying the Bible in depth for decades or are just getting started.

  • I love the new notes tools and am very interested in the canvas. Would love to see more on how to use canvas and it would be helpful if I could copy and paste graphics and pics from resources I own into noes. Any comments would be helpful. Thanks.
