There's a great article (about 11 pages long) on Clouds in the Bibliotheca Sacra 165, Jan-Mar., 2008 journal. I was reading this yesterday and it was so good that I just studied it most of the day.  I didn't realize there was so much to be said about clouds. 

Enjoy!

Hamilton,

Thanks so much for your response and the suggestion for "Lists" to my article on clouds.  I do have a question.  Does Logos have a Forum to a list of books, journals, etc. that does this and may give me a suggestion of something I might can read that's in my Library? Or a book I might could get.  I'm not especially interested in buying a bunch of new books because I already have a bunch.

I do have a lot of articles and books that I've been coming across and have posted in an excel spread sheet.  I like this list that you presented because I will also be looking for these topics.

Many thanks and God bless,
Susan Murphy

Hi again Susan:

Logos has something like the site you mention, but is not as specific as you are suggesting it to be:

https://wiki.logos.com/Reading_Lists

Maybe you can try to start a group in Faithlife just to share articles, sites, etc. about different topics to see if people share what they have come across that seems specially helpful.

Dear Hamilton,

I've been thinking about posting journals, books, articles, etc. that I like and have looked at doing it in Logos.  My main problem is I don't really like the Reading List method of posting in Logos.  I've tried to read some of those in the past and always get confused.  Sometimes it won't let me because I haven't paid the fee to be in.  I had much rather post in the Forum.  Also in the Forum you dialog back and forth, which I like.

For example today I've been reading the Emmaus Journal, Volume 19.  It is such an interesting journal.  It talks about Marriage Makes a Home: Divine Counsel for Fathers and Children. It mentions the grave effect of a father in the home and sometimes a dad will be an absentee dad even though he's in the home.  It tell how he needs to get involved with his wife and children and continues to go into details how this can be done.

The entire journal is very interesting and there are other topics in the journal.  

Somehow the list method in Logos just does not appeal to me.  It is cumbersome.  I just wish we could do it in the Forum.  This method appeals to me much more than the Reading List in Logos itself.  It could be titled "General - What Are You Reading?" or "General - Let's Read This," "General - Interesting Reading," etc.

Just my thoughts,

Susan Murphy

This comment puzzles me ... are you thinking of links to subscription websites outside Logos?

I think I understand your point Susan:

In Faithlife groups not many persons participate if you start a group because maybe they do not realize it exists or do not see many followers at the beginning.

In the Forums, many high caliber believers can participate, but most shy away from good theological discourse due to the restrictions in the forums.

Reading lists, and logos topics are interesting but not user friendly for content developers and are not interactive.

I am not sure if it is permitted, but you could always start a thread here, about a topic, and then list subtopics that interest you. Then ask if anyone knows of good articles, sites, resources, etc. applicable to the particular area. I think you could do that, but need to be topics that persons have investigated, or are of practical concerns to have more contribute.

I find the Emmaus reference you make very interesting. I will not be able to have access to such Journal until 

Galaxie's Theological Journal Library, vols. 1–20 

comes out on the 22nd.

I do have a large Logos library, and do not make super good use of it unless someone comes up with a good topic in the Forums or FL, and then I start researching to see what I find.

I just bought a book on FL e books about self directed learning, to see if I can design a more systematic curriculum for myself.

That is one of the reasons I liked so much Christian Discourse site (now defunct), because it gave me many leads to do good research.

If you post threads on particular topics, time permitting, I would be willing to contribute, just remember that it may take a little time to find good info, I try to post as soon as my other obligations allow me to.

Kind regards.

P. S.  Parenting is not easy. We can share what we believe, and why, but should not impose our beliefs to our children?

We can recommend them to be Christians, but they have to make the decision themselves.

As someone said: "God does not have adopted grandchildren". Each generation needs to make the decision to follow Him voluntarily. 

All I can do is try to be a good example, live the Christian values, and give the child thinking skills to be able to analyze critically different worldviews for validity.

Then is the Holy Spirit's job to cut to the hearts of the children and move them to make the right choice.

That is why we dedicate children to God, but allow them to choose baptism when they grow, if they want to commit themselves to Jesus' requirements for the New Covenant.

Dear M.J.,
I checked out the reading list and discovered that when it says "You don't have a license to read," that it was saying I need to buy the book.

Sincerely,

Dear Hamilton,

I just want something that is practical and easy.  I don't really care to get into deep theological debates.  Another book that is very interesting and very economical is "Short Sentence Long Remembered" by Leland Ryken.  It is absolutely fantastic. It talks about the development of proverbs and good sayings.  It's really good. And it is only $2.99 right now.  Love this little book. 

If I could figure out how to do this on the forum I would do it.  Personally, I think many people would like something like this.  My husband was a pastor and anything that is simple and easy was great.  Especially, because a pastor's life is extremely busy.

Blessings,

Susan Murphy

Yes Susan:

FL ebooks= old Vyrso.  https://ebooks.faithlife.com

I looked up in a basic search: " absentee NEAR father".

Very interesting information came up. I ordered already the Galaxie theological bundle, I will read the article you mention first thing after getting it.

https://www.logos.com/product/156048/galaxies-theological-journal-library-vols-1-20

To me is not that expensive because I already have a lot of the journals from other bundles that I have gotten before.

With respect an absentee father: I read long time ago that in antiquity, a tutor raised the children that were then presented to the Father at certain age.

The rationale for that is that if you grow extremely close and familiar to your children, they will see you as just another play partner, and not as an authority figure.

Some even say that when the transfiguration of Jesus happened, the representatives of Law and the Prophets were the tutors presenting the Son to the Father.

So, as a person in charge of the household and the family, there has to be certain distance, so that familiarity does not bring contempt, or so goes the folk philosophy on that.

What is your take on the matter?

Blessings, and thanks for bringing the absentee subject to the limelight.

Dear Hamilton, Regarding the absentee father.  I do believe that there has to be the element of respect.  But I've seen many fathers that are distant to their kids.  They don't have time for their kids.  They're checked out in their mind about something else.  For example, not spending time with the children and having fun with them. It's important to listen to them about what they like and letting them know that you love them.  I think it's important for the dad to hug his child or children.  Always go to important events for the child, like ball games, music recitals, just being there and supporting them in important events to them.  Telling them that you love them and you're pulling for them.  Something my son-in-law does with his 3 year old son every weekend is that he buys donuts and he and my grandson take the donuts to the Fire Department near them. That means the world to my grandson. I'm a big believer in the family meal time.  I think it's important to have meals with the family, where you discuss all kinds of topics.  At a young age kids will listen to you but if you don't engage with them in conversation now, they'll be checked when they're teen-agers.  It's good for the kids to see that you love your wife.  If you have boys, how you treat your wife patterns to them how they probably will treat their wife one day.  I definitely don't think it harms the kids to be close to them. I don't know if you remember James Dobson.  He was real close to his Dad.  His Dad was extremely good and close to him.  My husband is with Jesus now, but his Dad was a pastor and was too distant and very strict to my husband as he was growing up.  They never were really close.  It was only by the grace of God that my husband got right with God and became a minister. That journal, Emmaus Journal Volume 19, explains things much better than I can.  I could email you what it says about the family in the journal if you want me to.  It's tremendous. I will check into the eBooks. In Jesus, Susan Murphy

Great article.  Thanks for pointing it out.  There is a lot of great material in our Logos Libraries and the bulk of it does not get seen.  So it is nice on this thread to learn of some resources, articles that someone has found helpful.

Hi Susan, what you wrote makes sense.

I read long ago that there are different kind of persons, and they express love differently depending on their main perceptual channels:

Visual, aural, kinesthetic.

To know which one you are, you have to ask the question: how do you know someone loves you?

If you say that the significant other shows it, most likely your primary perceptual channel is visual.

If you say that the other persons tells you so, then most likely your primary perceptual channel is aural (hearing).

If you say "I feel it" then probably your main perceptual channel is kinesthetic.

Most athletes are kinesthetics. They can be in a room totally in silence doing something, and yet love is moving between them kinesthetics.

I would guess that if the hypothesis is right, the problem arises when the persons in a relation have different main perceptual channels. If the man is kinesthetic, but the woman aural, she will complain that he never tells her that he loves her, and he will be surprised because all his love is sent in energy when in her presence.

I would imagine is the same with children. Maybe some children think that they are not loved because they do not receive the "proof of that love" in accordance with the primary perceptual channel that they have.

Is complicated, and I wish more study would be done on the topic.

Do not worry about the article, I will read it first thing as soon as I get it in Logos.

Nice topic, thanks for bringing it up.

Hi Landon:

If I understood you well, you are asking what recommended journal bundle for someone that is beginning to think about using them in Logos 8.

For the last few years, Logos has put out some bundles in journals that were unmatched. I was fortunate enough to be able to get them. So now the updates are not as expensive.

There was a similar question to yours and the answer given was:

https://www.logos.com/product/16250/florida-college-annual-lectures

Like you mention theological journals are great (if you are interested in theology), because they go more in deep about the beliefs of the author, why he / she looks at certain topics one way and not another etc.

To some, good journals are better to get into theological topics than commentaries.

There are missional type journals, counseling type, revival type, ministry type, and there is also the Christianity Today that was in offer not long ago.

In the Blog there are articles that may clarify things for you:

https://blog.logos.com/?s=journal

Lastly one good use of them is in the application part of a given passage, they can be useful too in application in general.

https://blog.logos.com/2014/06/how-do-you-use-logos-dave-moser/

I hope this helps you out a bit.

Kind regards.
