Reading Plan

Logos allows you to create, customize, and share reading plans of the Bible or any other resource in your library.

You can create a Reading Plan by clicking Doc > New > Reading Plan. Reading Plans you’ve already created will appear in the main pane of the Docs menu. Logos will open a dialog box providing you with three options for generating a Reading Plan.
