As a Wordsearch convert, is it too early to expect to find my Bibles (NLT, NASB, Message, etc) in my Logos library?

I found around 30 of mine - so about half. Some of the labeling is a bit different.

I do not see The Message in my Logo library either. Nor do I see the New Century Version (NCV) [which seems a poor choice for study but I find it useful in devotions as a verse will hit me different when from such a moderate dynamic equivalent translation].

-- update --

I do see that The Message is offered by Logos, so they have it available.

Possibly at some point we ask about license issues. I'm not at all surprised that there are some hiccups in that transfer, as you know it was automated rather than individually handled.

-- update --

Now I verified that they also have NCV, so in time we should be able to get those added to our license.

Hi Wordsearchians!

Do you know if J. B. Phillips' The New Testament In Modern English was available in WS? If so, I hope it means we Logosians might finally be able to get it.

I have the same question. I get the impression from how the new app looks on my MacBook that it is done importing, but the vast majority of my bibles have not 'come over.' For example, the ESV, which I rely on a lot, is missing.

I have just come abord the logos train, there seems to be alot of discrepancies from the Wordsearch library to the logos library. I am not sure if many of the titles have been brought over. Is there a way that we can just copy our libraries out of our download directory and insert it into this new program so that everything is in one place and we dont have to waste time that we all dont have to be going between 2 programs????

check out the other posts guys. There are several listings of books that will not be over for a few business days due to legalities. Someone posted a link to a rough list

This was sold as two separate resources (OT and NT) in Wordsearch, but it's just one resource in Logos. We're waiting to see if we can unlock the whole thing for WS users.

This looks simply like some incomplete data on our end; it may be fixed soon.

Posting the Book ID will help us track this down: https://community.logos.com/forums/p/193845/1117297.aspx#1117297

Book summary:

The New Testament in Modern English was born out of a perceived need by J.B. Phillips, to translate a Bible that would speak in a clear, readable way. At the time, the King James Version was the most prevalent and widely-read Bible translation, but Phillips felt it was arcane and did not relate to the young people of the day. Schooled in classical Greek, he translated the original Greek text and rendered it as a thought-for-thought paraphrase of the New Testament. The whole New Testament was first published in 1958, it was later revised in 1961, and then again in 1972. The New Testament in Modern English is best known as the original modern paraphrase, in the same family as the Living Bible and The Message.

About the Author

John Bertram Phillips (1906-1982), was an English clergyman who had studied classical Greek at Cambridge University. Time Magazine described Phillips this way: "...he can make St. Paul sound as contemporary as the preacher down the street. Seeking to 'transmit freshness and life across the centuries'". Phillips served as a minister to the youth at Church of the Good Shepherd in London, during World War II. While ministering in bomb shelters, he realized the need for a translation that would speak to all people in a contemporary way.

Thank you, Ruben!

I just noticed that Faithlife emailed a link Fri night to a list of new resources from the acquisition.

Welcome to the forums Steven. It may take a while for the conversion to complete. If it does not, then give Logos a call/email or post back here.
