It’s Here, Albeit in Beta

Earlier this morning, Logos Bible Software announced the release of the beta version of Biblia.com. To all visitors, Biblia.com offers access to slightly more than forty resources, including various Bible translations and a few more dated Greek New Testament texts. Free registration at Biblia.com allows users to access still other resources.

What looks to be the real beauty of Biblia.com, however, is how it integrates with the Logos platform to allow Logos users online access to their own personal, Logos libraries, as in the following example where Biblia.com is opened to both Romans 1 and (Cairo) Damascus Document 1 from my Logos library:
Biblia.com Sample
For Logos 4 users, this integration will even allow synchronization of the “last read” positions in their resources.

I had been wondering for a while when we would start seeing some more substantive, web-resource integration from the major software platforms currently used for academic work in biblical studies, and it looks like that kind of integration may now be peaking its head around the corner.
