text size A A A

Author: Logos President/CEO Bob Pritchett

Introducing the Biblia.com beta release: a super-simple Bible for the web that’s backed up by the incredible technology (and massive library!) of Logos Bible Software. What makes Biblia.com so cool?

1. Simplicity

Need to link to a Bible verse?
http://biblia.com/bible/jn3.16
Want to choose multiple verses and a specific version? http://biblia.com/bible/nlt/jn3.16-20

2. Power

Want to see the verse in context, or side-by-side with a commentary? Just click the “more >>” link and the single-passage display turns into a two-pane viewer where you can scroll through the Bible and thousands of other books from your Logos library.

You can even link directly to a book in your library: http://biblia.com/books/summbblnt/Jn3

Need to search? Biblia.com has the power of the Logos 4 search engine, running on the web.

3. Depth

Biblia.com offers thousands of resources for searching and reading online. Everyone can use a small collection of books (including more than a dozen bible translations). A free account allows access to dozens more free books. And Logos 4 users can access their library online, complete with synchronization of “last read” position between Logos 4, the iPhone/iPad, and Biblia.com! (The list of books available online is subject to publisher permission, as with availability through mobile applications.)

In the future, everyone will be able to purchase content at Biblia.com and use it wherever they choose: online, on mobile devices, in Logos Bible Software 4, etc.

4. Freedom

With shared licenses between Logos Bible Software 4 for Mac, Windows, iPhone, iPad, Mobile Web, and Biblia.com, your content is available wherever you are.

And we’re opening up to your great ideas, too: http://api.biblia.com offers a powerful set of web services for Bible search and retrieval. Anyone can harness the power of Logos Bible Software 4’s underlying engine to build new web sites, mashups, etc.

Biblia.com is still in beta, but the features that are live are running well. You can link to the URL’s created by Biblia.com’s “Share” feature and they will continue to work into the future. We will also be redirecting RefTagger and Ref.ly links to Biblia.com in the next few days.
