Logos now has the Catechism (and a new blog!)
Logos Bible Software, already the best Scripture tool around, has now integrated the entire Catechism of the Catholic Church into its program. And it couldn't come at a better time with this year marking the twentieth anniversary of the Catechism's release.
With Logos, studying the Catechism is easier than ever. The whole thing is tied to Scripture. All the footnotes are tagged so they appear on mouse-over, and the software allows you to move from a citation to its original context in just one click. Watch below to see it in action:
The great part is that you don't have to have any of the other library packages to use the Catechism. You can simply download the free software, purchase the $50 Catechism Collection, and from there you're ready to go.
When buying the Catechism Collection, however, you also get the documents of Vatican II, the Canons and Decrees of Trent, Denninger's Sources of Catholic Dogma, and much more:
"With the Catechism of the Catholic Church Collection, thousands of the Catechism’s citations come alive—linking to the original documents. The Collection allows you to get behind the Catechism’s summary of the faith and into the primary sources themselves. The Collection includes the most important texts cited by the Catechism and so allows one to see not just what the contemporary Catholic Church teaches, but what it bases this teaching on.
What’s more, the Catechism itself can be used as a type of commentary on the other texts in the collection. For example, one can quickly find every instance of the Catechism citing a certain document of Vatican II or a particular Bible verse. The Collection includes the lectionary of the Catholic Church, so the Catechism becomes an automatic companion to the daily readings.
With the Catechism of the Catholic Church Collection, the Catechism is transformed from a summary of Catholicism to a gateway into the Catholic faith."
Logos also has a new blog titled Verbum which is dedicated to their Catholic products. Check it out at ScriptureStudySoftware.com and enter their incredible giveaway to win the $790 Catholic Scholar's package.
