I have been using the Logos 2.0 Library System for a short period of time,
and find that it is very easy learn and use. The expandability of the will
allow it to grow with your friend. I think that your friend should ask
herself the following questions:

1. How do I want to effect my world for the Kingdom of God and what tools
do I need to do this?

2. Do I want a Bible Software program that will Grow with me and meet my
needs in the future as well as today?

3. Do I want a program that is on the cutting edge of Bible Software programs?

4. Have your friend dream a bit and come up with what she would include in
a Bible Software program and what it would do that would best meet her

I do not believe that there is any better tool in the area of Bible
Software that can help a person be better suited to effectively make a
impact on their world for Christ than the Logos Library System (LLS). The
LLS is a flexible and powerful tool that can be used by both the novice and
the person who has a lot of computer experience.

The program is designed to grow with the user. It is easily expandible
without loosing the easy of use and the power of the search engine. It is
the only software I know of that lets you search your entire library no
matter how big and no matter how many books you add to it .

The Logos Library System was designed to take advantage of Windows 95, but
since it was released before Windows 95 it is still a 16 bit application,
however, it acts like a 32 bit application.

Because the Logos Library system is so flexible there are several different
options that can be taken that will include the Greek Text.

1. Level 3 which includes the following:

King James, New International, American Standard (1901), New American
Standard, Revised Standard Version

3. Or you can buy only the books that you desire. It is not necessary to
purchase a level even though they are designed to help you save money. It
is possible to buy on book at time. Once you purchase a book you have the
program with a cd full of books that can be unlocked as your pocket book
