If video killed the radio star, then software killed, or at least maimed, the print industry. However, one software company doesn't think print is ready for the morgue just yet.
"Paper isn't dead," said Bob Pritchett, President of Logos Bible Software, "and while more and more people are discovering that it's an awkward format for a ten volume Greek lexicon, it still remains a very attractive, portable, friendly, accessible, and bathroom-compatible format for browsing."
In November, Logos Bible Software, a 17-year-old software company, launched its first print publication, Bible Study Magazine.
Logos Bible Software, which develops industry leading software for Bible study, realized that there are many people who know very little about how to study the Bible. Logos is hoping that Bible Study Magazine will change that by introducing readers to resources and approaches to studying the Bible.
"For searching the writings of the Apostolic Fathers, there's no better tool than Logos Bible Software," said Pritchett. "To introduce someone who's never thought of them to the Fathers and explain how their writings can illuminate our Bible study and encourage us in our faith? That's a job for Bible Study Magazine."
The customer response to Bible Study Magazine has been impressive. Bible Study Magazine's inaugural issue (Nov-Dec 2008) had a controlled circulation of 10,000 and since the initial distribution over 6,000 more people have subscribed.
Bible Study Magazine, which ships six times a year, will deliver tools and methods for Bible study, as well as insights into the Bible from respected voices in the church and biblical scholarship.
Subscriptions are available at www.BibleStudyMagazine.com.
