I’ve fallen off in my blogging quite a bit over the last few years: my last post (a book review) was December 2011, and, other than conference reports and book reviews, it’s rather sparse for the year or two prior to that.

But i’m excited to be reviving my blog and starting a new series today to celebrate the release of Logos 5. In Bob’s Pritchett’s overview post on the Logos blog, he talks about the importance of connection in Bible study, and says [italics mine]

Logos Bible Software 5 is a significant update that is all about connection.

This focus on connection is not just marketing talk or a conceptual metaphor. It describes in a very concrete way the important new datasets that make Logos 5 a major contribution to the world of biblical studies. I recognize that’s a mighty big claim, but i plan to back it up by describing the vision, architectures, effort, and technical approaches that have made the new features of Logos 5 a reality. In my role as Director of Content Innovation at Logos, i lead a talented and hard-working team of people who have spent the last several years making all these connections. (it wasn’t my idea, but that’s me in the “What’s new in Logos 5″ video) Over this series of posts, i hope you’ll gain a better appreciation for what went into these new features, and what makes them so important.

I’d love to hear your comments and questions. For example: which of the new Logos 5 features do you find most useful?
