Black Christians remain the most Bible-engaged Americans and the company behind Logos Bible Software is looking to tap into that trait by finally integrating the perspectives of Black leaders into its popular program with an initiative dubbed the Kerusso Collective.
“The Kerusso Collective has been a vision Faithlife has been working toward for over a year,” Chauncey Allmond, a Logos Bible Software national presenter, said in a news release about the venture. “There is a large population of Black church leaders using Logos yet we realized their voices are not fully represented in the digital Bible software. The formation of the Kerusso Collective is the first step in ensuring the diversity of our users is representative of the scholars and resources available in the software.”
Although Faithlife, developers of Logos Bible Software, has been operational for nearly 30 years, this is the first time the predominantly White Bellingham, Washington, company has set out to “boldly call the church to listen to voices that have been sidelined,” by intentionally integrating Black scholarship into its mainstay digital program.
