If you cannot find or open a resource in the Logos Bible, Verbum, Biblia, FaithLife Study Bible or Faithlife eBooks app, follow these troubleshooting steps.

Note: If after following these solutions you need additional help, tap the More Menu icon Hamburger icon, tap Help, and contact support by selecting Report a Problem.

Tip: Watch this video, and be sure that your Library search field is clear when browsing for a specific book title.

Solution 1: Verify Internet Access

The Logos Bible app is primarily “cloud-based,” meaning resources, search results and many other features are internet-dependent. Be sure your device has an active internet connection before opening the app to ensure all features and resources are available.

If you did not have internet access when the app was opened, switch your device to Airplane Mode, then back again to refresh the connection.

Additionally, newer Logos resources require the latest version of the software. Ensure the app is updated on your device.

Solution 2: Verify Account Details

The Faithlife mobile apps display resources based on the account that is signed into the app.

Account Types

Resources will vary by account as follows.

Active Account

If you feel you are missing resources, based on the above table, please verify you are logged in with the same account used to purchase them.

Tap the More Menu icon Hamburger icon, tap Help, and find Account. Your account email address should be listed.

Account setting in mobile app

If it is not, tap Sign in. If the wrong address is listed, remove the app from your device, and reinstall the app as shown below.

Solution 3: Reindex your Library (iOS only)

One the mobile homepage and type rebuild index into the input field and tap enter.

Wait a minute or two with the application open, and then open the Library panel and search for the book again.

Solution 4: Manually Restart the App

You can refresh the syncing engine by restarting the app.

Solution 5: Re-Install the App

If your resources are still not visible, or if the wrong account is listed, reinstall with the instructions below.
