“I am so glad that we partnered with Verbum to put this software into the hands of our priests and deacons. It is an excellent resource for crafting better homilies and for prayer and study as well. All Catholics can benefit from Verbum and grow in their knowledge and love of Jesus Christ.”

“As Catholics, we are called to read the Scriptures from the heart of the Church, from within the living Tradition, and to be transformed by our encounter with the Living Word. Verbum is an amazing tool toward this end. It illuminates the text of sacred Scripture with valuable sources from our Tradition, allowing us to study the Word of God in symphony with the fathers, doctors, and saints, and in harmony with the Magisterium. What is more, Verbum enables you to enter more deeply into the biblical text itself—studying the Greek or Hebrew, even for those with limited knowledge of these languages. I use Verbum myself, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to all Catholics who are looking to grow deeper in their faith and understanding.”

“Verbum is on the cutting edge of Bible Study. The tools that they have provided for Catholics make studying the Bible more fruitful and portable. Verbum is always thinking ahead and providing opportunities for Christians to engage Christ in His word.

“Verbum gives you the ability to instantly and effortlessly make discoveries in the Bible that would have taken scholars endless hours of labor in the past. Verbum provides a treasure trove of insights both on Scripture and on countless other faith-building resources, including the Church Fathers, Church councils, and the great saints and doctors of the Church. I use Verbum constantly, I am convinced of its value, and I enthusiastically recommend it to others.”

“The invention of the printing press forever changed the way we study the Bible. Now there has been another paradigm shift in the world of Bible study. Verbum Catholic software puts resources at our fingertips that were inconceivable in previous generations. The powerful tools behind the software make the study of Catholic resources and the Bible more powerful than ever. This power extends beyond computers to smart phones, iPads, and other platforms. And everything syncs through the Logos cloud, making the program even more invaluable.

I was one of the first Logos and Verbum users. It has been the basis of my biblical studies since 1990. You can’t comprehend what it is like to drive a Ferrari until you sit behind the wheel, and there is no way to understand the power and ease of Verbum until you open it on your screen. Strap yourself in and prepare for the ride of your life. Download Verbum and experience Catholic and Bible study like never before. There is no competition for this marvelous program.”

“Verbum’s ease of use for men and women just starting out in Scripture study, and its deep libraries for pastors and scholars, make it the premium Scripture study tool of this next generation. Nobody I know who has used Verbum has been disappointed. Rather, they have been delighted beyond their expectations.”

“I’ve been using Verbum for years and I can’t remember how I did Scripture study without it! Not only can Verbum do word searches, analysis of texts in their original languages, etc.—it does much more! Verbum has papal documents, key sources from Catholic tradition, and works by prominent Catholic scholars like Scott Hahn. What I especially like is the way Verbum has hyperlinked all of these works to one another. Curious what a particular father or scholar has to say about a given passage? Verbum’s intertextual links will take you there in a moment! And you can have access to your entire library on your cell phone! As I tell my students, if you’re trying to do Catholic Bible study without this Software, you’re handicapping yourself! Insisting that it won’t add much to your ability to study the Bible is like insisting that using a typewriter can do just about as much as a computer. Unlock your potential as a student of Scripture and get Verbum today.”

“Verbum is not just the premier Bible software today; it’s the most powerful scriptural tool in the history of the Church. Where else can you study the Bible alongside Jerome, Augustine, Aquinas, and Benedict? Or in light of liturgical prayers, conciliar documents, and writings from the saints? Verbum brings all of that to you in an elegant, easy-to-use package. It surrounds the Bible with the riches of Tradition and thereby unveils Scripture in all its color, beauty, texture.”

“I believe Verbum could be a highly effective tool in helping the students in our Catholic high schools deepen their understanding of and love for our faith. I’m especially impressed with the ways in which Verbum links text with source documents, enabling students to appreciate our faith tradition in new and scholarly ways. ”

“I’ve been a happy and satisfied Verbum customer and cheerleader for years and have recommended the software countless times to folks on my weekly radio show, at my parish seminars, and talks. I’m very excited about these Catholic libraries and resources and wholeheartedly recommend them.”

Fr. Ted Martin

Priest for the Diocese of Kalamazoo, Michigan, and graduate student at Santa Croce University in Rome

“There is no greater task for the priest than to preach the Gospel so that the faithful may fruitfully encounter Jesus Christ in the Sacraments. In a world where priests are more and more "on the go", the resources offered by Logos are truly a Godsend. Even a priest who is moving frequently can have essential resources at his side in a way unimaginable not many years ago. Serious study and reflection on the Word of God is now available to even the busiest priests as a veritable digital library of Scripture, Tradition, and the Magisterium follows us with Logos. We are truly blessed by your apostolate—thank you!”

Fr. Devin Roza

“Verbum is the most powerful tool available, not only for the study of the Scriptures, but also of the entire living Tradition of the Catholic faith. Whether it be preparing your next homily, studying a passage of the Scriptures, or reading the best works available on the faith, nothing beats Verbum. Verbum unlocks the Scriptures, the Fathers, the Magisterium, and the Liturgy, and the best modern authors, and allows you to study them together with ease. I use Verbum every day and heartily recommend it.”

Fr. Kenneth Malley

Pastor of St. Timothy Parish in Lutz, FLorida

Verbum has been a great tool for our preaching team at St. Timothy Parish. We are blessed to have three deacons and two priests. My parochial vicar already had the Verbum Program and this year I purchased the Verbum parish program for myself and our three deacons. We are only beginning to see the benefits of all these resources.

“This software is simply incredible. From researching a scripture passage for a homily, to referencing Canon Law and the Catechism when drafting policies, my work is easier, more enjoyable, and the things I am producing are more effective.”

“Behind all Spirit-filled motivation is Spirit-led education. Verbum is the perfect Catholic Bible software for anyone interested in a massive library of Scripture. It’s great, not only for scholars and theologians, but also for lay people wishing to learn more about their Catholic faith in Christ. I highly recommend for clergy, consecrated, and laity.”

“This is more than software. It’s a respectable theological library that fits easily onto an iPad and goes everywhere you might have to go. In some ways it’s better than the bookshelves of a theological library, since it’s searchable. Verbum is helping us train for the kingdom of heaven—with treasures old and new (Mt. 13:52).”

“As a bishop I have taken notice with delight of the partnership Verbum has reached with some of the prestigious institutions of our Church, such as the Pontifical Biblical Institute in Rome, the Collegeville Catholic Reference Library and others. As ex-president of the Pontifical Theological Faculty I am convinced that we need to overcome—as soon as possible—our ‘ecclesial deficit in the appropriate use of electronic media’ and fill in the gaps in the biblical formation of our contributors. Verbum is the ideal partner.”

“I use Verbum daily as I prepare blog posts. I’ve also used Verbum for my doctoral dissertation, and in both books that I’ve written. I can copy and paste quickly and easily into a MS Word doc or into a blog post. I also appreciate how I can customize the presentation in a Catholic way. I have my window set up so that I can see the Greek, Latin Vulgate, and the Douay-Rheims English—each is searchable. I was delighted that Verbum has the traditional Clementine Vulgate for academic research. Five stars!”

“I highly recommend Verbum for everyone engaged in ministry or studying for it, whether as priests, deacons, or lay ecclesial ministers.
Last year over 80 seminarians, faculty, and commuter students at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit purchased Verbum. It is a wonderful tool.
Without doubt Verbum provides the best electronic format available for reading or consulting the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture. The live links to Scripture, the Catechism, other magisterial documents, various translations, and other Scripture resources make it a breeze to use, not only on a computer, but on all kinds of devices.
I do a daily lectio continua of the Greek New Testament on my Kindle Fire using the Verbum app. When I encounter a word or form I don’t know or want to study, the information I seek is available at the touch of a finger.”

And as a professor of Scripture for Catholic seminarians, I can’t express just how enthused I am about all the Catholic resources available from Verbum. Hundreds of volumes of vital Catholic texts at one’s fingertips . . . from the Church fathers to Catholic Bible translations to the Summa and Newman, Ratzinger—even St. Thérèse of Lisieux! Way to go, Verbum!”

“During this era of the New Evangelization, Verbum is indispensable and invaluable for every priest, deacon, religious or lay faithful . . . As president of a national association of priests and deacons (Confraternity of Catholic Clergy), I enthusiastically recommend this product and urge and exhort my colleagues to use Verbum. It has become my vademecum, as I can access my documents on my iPhone, iPad, laptop & desktop computer. Best of all, the software allows me to connect and link the Scriptures and Catechism not only with each other but also with the Fathers of Church, the Summa and gemstones like Denzinger’s Enchridion Symbolorum (in English) . . . Verbum is a pearl of great worth.”

“I can’t say enough good things about Verbum. There is absolutely no comparison to what they have done in Bible software technology. Just about everything that a student of Scripture could possibly want is now at their fingertips! You can have a great assortment of resources right on your iPad and take it with you wherever you go! And now students of Catholic Scripture Study International will have not only this wealth of information available to them, along with their CSS studies, but also the means to study and share new insights and information with other CSS students around the world. This is truly answered prayer!”

“Verbum makes something as deep and vast as Scripture accessible, fast, and awe inspiring . . . even for Catholic hackers like me! With this tool, in mere seconds, we can take any verse and read related commentaries, quotations from the Early Church fathers, Church councils, spiritual works, parallel passages, original language tools, and so much more! This is a MUST have for Scripture divers like me. Give yourself a gift: get this tool, then use it and share the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic faith with all the world. Dive deep!”

“My door into Verbum as the electronic home for a Catholic scholar opened in 2001 when I bought Luther’s Works. I used BibleWorks and then Accordance for many years. Verbum is more powerful, elegant, and comprehensive. I regularly use the Summa (English and Latin), Newman, Brown, Ratzinger, Fitzmyer, Hahn, and many others. The great texts of the whole Tradition are needed to read Scripture. Verbum is well on its way to fulfilling that need.”

Fr. Christian Mathis

Chaplain at ETSU Catholic Center

“Verbum is an invaluable resource for anyone who is serious about studying the Bible and the great minds of Catholic theology. It has allowed me to grow my theological library without spending a fortune and I love the fact that the whole collection can easily travel with me. The most useful aspect of Verbum is one's ability to link books together and to search through the entire library by topic, author or theme. What an amazing tool for homily preparation, lesson planning, or personal study!”

Fr. Andrew Dalton

Priest and graduate student at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross

“Late have I loved you, Verbum! I discovered this powerful Bible software after beginning my post-graduate studies in Rome, and I immediately realized how it could exponentially increase the fruits of my study. My only lament is that I didn’t find it sooner! Verbum has become a part of my daily routine, and there is simply no going back. I am convinced that Verbum has revolutionized the way we study the Word of God. Less than a generation ago, you needed a doctoral thesis to do the kind of investigation that you can do now with a few simple clicks. If you’re a theology student, you will be amazed at what Verbum can put at your fingertips in the classroom (teachers beware!). If you preach or teach or write, or are simply in love with sacred Scripture, you will love what Verbum can do for you.”

Fr. Hezuk Shroff

Parochial vicar at Holy Redeemer Parish in Ottawa, Ontario

“Since I began using Verbum, my love for the Word of God has continued to grow exponentially. As a Catholic priest, I prepare many homilies, talks, and presentations on various aspects of the Catholic Faith, and Verbum has allowed me to be much more efficient and effective in this aspect of my ministry. I highly recommend Verbum to all priests, to those involved in catechesis, and to any Catholic who simply wants to enter more deeply into the Sacred Scriptures and to discover the inexhaustible depths of our Catholic Faith.”

Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson

Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter

“Verbum is, far and away, the best resource available to help people connect with the Tradition of the Church. One literally can have a vast library available at one’s fingertips, whenever and wherever needed. The capabilities of Verbum to assist with homiletical and catechetical preparation as well as personal study and research are both comprehensive and incisive. There is simply no reason why anyone cannot preach and teach and think with the mind of the Church. It has been a tremendous resource for us, given the special circumstances of priestly formation for former Anglican clergy.”

Dr. Nathan Schmiedicke

Professor of Exegesis, Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary

“Suffice it to say that being introduced to the Verbum Bible software has been a transformation. The sheer content presented in a user-friendly format to meet the basic needs of beginners and the rigorous demands of academics is impressive. ”
