I have Logos 4 Silver Edition.  Does anyone have an outline of the books as to what is generally considered either liberal or conservative scholorship.  I enjoy people like MacArthur and Sproul.  Sure appreciate some guidance.

Thanks

Read your Bible and then everything else.  If you follow my advice, you will begin to look more like me than like Jesus.  You may have to come to conclusions that differ from those around you.  But that is not a bad thing - so did Luther, Calvin, Wesley, and many others.  They listened to scripture first - so must we.

Yours because His,

John,

There are plenty of ways to research individual works on the Internet. You realize the terms you are using have different meanings to different people?

That said, the content of the Silver edition is almost all what most people would consider conservative. Someone might be able to point out an exception but exceptions will be rare.

Mark has summed it up pretty well.  To that, I would add that you will run into a variety of conservative flavors: Baptist, Reformed, Stone-Campbell movement, etc. 

"Liberal" commentaries within Logos are sets like Hermeneia, Anchor Yale, some say Word Biblical.  For sure the first two are seen more as "liberal", even as they will offer very helpful insights even to conservatives!  Smile  (I like Raymond Brown on John (gospel and epistles) and Markus barth on Ephesians, to name two in AY)

Those two guys are two of my favorite. I would recommend you pick up Da Carson's NT Commentary Survey http://www.logos.com/ebooks/details/NTCOMMSURV and Rosscup's Commentary Survey available in the Kress Biblical Studies Collection (http://www.logos.com/products/details/4648) for specifics. Parts of a series may be conservative and quality, with an assumption of innerancy and infallibility, other's may not. I':

  • Bible Exposition Commentary
  • Bible Knowledge Commentary
  • Portions of the New American commentary series (portions not)
  • Opening Up Commentary Collection (You should enjoy this)
  • Word Pictures

I would recommend you also consider looking into the following which are pretty much good throughout their entirety. These are all high-value purchases. I know I'm missing some, so others of a similar theological persuasion may want to add some:

  • Expositor's Bible Commentary.
  • Baker New Testament Commentary (Hendriksen & Kistemaker)
  • Baker Exegetical
  • MacArthur NT Commentaries
  • Calvin's Commentaries & Spurgeon's Sermons (You might not be able to find these anymore, but be creative with search engines. They used to come together in a single cd).
  • R Kent Huges Preaching the Word
  • Boice's Expositional 
  • The Bible Speaks Today Series
  • Pillar Commentary Series
  •
