I wanted to share with you one of my favorite features in Logos. At the beginning of this month, I discovered the SBLGNT reading plan. The reading plan breaks down all the passages in the NT into manageable chunks to provide you with a no fuss approach to reading through your Greek New Testament in a year.
When I load up the program at the bottom left of my screen is the reading plan with the reading for the day:
When I click on the passage, it pulls up the passage, and I can get to reading immediately:
As you see, there is a “Start Reading” and a “Stop Reading” bar that appears in the text. After you get to the end of the reading, you simply check the “Mark Read” box, and the program updates to your current position. The great thing is that it updates across all your devices.
There are a number of other really nice features. If you want a daily update to remind you to read for the day, just click on the “Export to iCal” option, and a list of options appears:
Also, you can get an overview of the plan for the year or even edit it as you see fit:
Finally, and this is the best part, it is all free. You can just go over to Logos, download the program, download the SBLGNT for free, and get to brushing up on your Greek. I’ve already cut into Luke 6!
