Since I will be here all week.  I intend to catch the News on LOGOS.

Will keep my fingers crossed.

The price I gave you was Faithlife essentials. Faithlife Starter is only 8.99 a month. I would call customer service and ask about it. You would probably get some additional volumes added to your library, but it does not come with the 2% cash back coupon every February. If you aren't buying anything, that will not be a drawback. As long as you have Connect, you get any new feature upgrades immediately.

I don't mind the rant. 

Question, you mentioned a lot about sermons. Have you kicked the tires on the Sermon editor yet?  You can develop an outline, slides, handouts, etc. 

Obviously, I don't preach, being a female in the Church of Christ, but I do write. Currently, just for personal reasons, but I will be branching out in the near future. Haven't decided what that will look like yet, but I will be doing some kind of writing. Probably having to do with the Bible and mental health. I plan on using those tools, Sermon editor and Sermon Manager to keep it all organized. Right now, I am just using Word and One Note, but hope to integrate all that in Logos eventually.

Give customer service a call and have them explain in depth about the different levels of subscriptions. There are four: 8.99/mo, 99/yr, 14.99/mo, 24.99/mo.

Thanks, Carla

I may have mis-spoke. The Faithlife Connect Starter, the one that is 8.99/month may not include all the features and feature upgrades. You may have to go to 14.99/mo for that. Call customer service to make sure.  Carla

Vol. 1-Gen-Ruth

Vol. 2-I Sam-Job

Vol. 3-Psa-Isa

Vol. 4-Jer-Mal

Vol. 5-Matt-Romans

Vol. 6-I Cor-Rev

Yes, Calvin  That is what I've Got.
Actually, It used to be Six(6) volumes as you list in your post.
Before they started printing in Paperback Version, the publisher
Combined Vol. 5 and Vol 6 into one large Volume.  So, if you can
find this out-of-Print Hardback, it will probably be Five Hardbacks
instead of the original Six.  The Combined Volumes 5 & 6 has 
approximately  377 pages in Volume 5 and 356 pages in Volume
Six.  That's a total of  over 730 pages covering the New Testament.

The print is pretty small, with no scripture.  Just commentary.  If it was
printed in a larger Print and Page size it would probably be somewhere 
between 1200 and 1500 pages just for the New Testament Portion.  I'd 
say altogether, more like 4,000 pages altogether.

You can download the .PDF versions of all the Volumes from the Restoration
Library at   In the search box, type "ZERR" and
it will give you the links for all the Volumes and then allow you to download
each volume.  The owner scanned all Five of the Hardbacks for me and mailed
the books backed to me.  The .PDFs on the above site are the .PDFs he 
created when he "scanned" my books.  I entered all the text into WORDSearch
several years ago.  When I switched over to LOGOS I decided to take the 
WORDSearch Userbook and convert it to LOGOS format.

You can download the entire WORDSearch Userbook from my old Bible website
at   What I did in WORDSerch, was
to export the entire module as a single HTML File (Over 20MB in size).  I then
loaded into WORD and saved as a .docx format which is about 9MB in size.  Now,
when I do Zerr's Commentary on a particular book, I just copy the text from the main
.docx file, past it into a new .docx file and save it for edited and eventual use in the
LOGOS Personal Book Editor.

By the time you read this Post I will probably have uploaded Zerr's Commentary on 
the book of 1st Chronicles.  I have already started on Zerr's Commentary for 2nd Chronicles.
Also, on my old website (see above)  I believe you can still download the Commentary for
Zerr's on each of the 66 Books of the Bible.

Zerr also published in the early 20th century a book with over 16,000 Study Questions on
the New Testament.  It was divided into Questions for each chapter in the New Testament.
Some of the Chapters have as many as eighty (80) Questions per chapter.  He also published
a book which has  Questions for Every book of the Old Testament as well.  I have been thinking
of taking his questions and adding them to the Commentary I have been working on for LOGOS.
Thought it would be a good way to supplement his Commentary.  Also, these Questions are also
available as a download from my website listed above.  They are in .PDF Format.

In Christ,

Mark Johns

I love discussion and study questions, application resources. I can't wait for you to add the questions. My biggest gripe with Logos is they do not have the resources "Complete Bible Discussion Guide for the Old Testament and the New Testament." I have to make sure and load this over in the new feedback tool. I may visit your website and download them myself after I get the Audie McKee studies done.

Below you and the other LOGOS Users on this forum will find Zerr's Bible Commentary
for the book of Genesis thru 1st Chronicles.  2nd Chronicles is coming very soon.....
These files listed below are the lasted updated ones I have.  However, I did not take the
time to correct all the Spelling and Grammar mistakes.  Here they are:

5102.Zerr-Genesis.with BI.docx

1106.Zerr-Exodus.with BI.docx

3750.Zerr-Leviticus.with BI.docx

5670.Zerr-Numbers.with BI.docx

1754.Zerr-Deuteronomy.with BI.docx

4034.Zerr-Joshua.with bible index.docx

5126.Zerr-Judges.with BI.docx

5545.Zerr-Ruth with bible index.docx

4617.Zerr-1st Samuel.with BI.docx

2742.Zerr-2nd Samuel.with BI.docx

3465.Zerr-1st Kings.with BI.docx

1411.Zerr-2nd Kings.with BI.docx

0876.Zerr-1st Chronicles.with BI.docx  Just finished 1st Chronicles on 10/26/20 at 2:30pm EST.

I would also like to thank NB.Mick for helping me get started inserting and adding all the "Milestones" thru 1st & 2nd Samuel. Now that I have learned how to do Milestones, it's not so hard.  I also give credit to Carla (cshover) for providing me with some of her Personal Books to help me see how "Milestones" are employed in the creation of Personal books for LOGOS.

Forgot to say that when all the .docx are loaded in order into the Personal
Book Editor to create the Zerr Bible Commentary there are no errors or mistakes
when they are compile into a single Bible Commentary.

Again, below is the image file for Zerr's Commentary so you can include it
in the mix when you compile the book.....

You're welcome.

Probably will have Ezra and Nehemiah in a couple days.
Wife home this week from work and will keep me away from the keyboard!

Anyway, NB.Mick, hope you like it.  Cannot wait to get to the Psalms.....

Below you will find the Book of Ezra from the E.M Zerr Bible Commentary.

All the necessary Milestones are included in this file.

This now makes available the books of Genesis thru Ezra. Like the other ..docx files from
this commentary, together they compile with no errors and/or mistakes.

Here it is:  3872.Zerr-Ezra.with BI.docx

Please find below the Commentaries for the Book of Nehemiah and Esther from the Zerr Bible Commentary.

This will complete the Zerr Bible Commentary for Genesis thru Esther.

Once I complete the Book of Job, I will start on volume 3 of Zerr's Bible Commentary.

Volume Three Includes: Psalms thru Isaiah

8713.Zerr-Nehemiah.with BI.docx

1512.Zerr-Esther.with BI.docx

Please note that so far, the Books of Genesis thru Esther compile with no Mistakes and Errors.

                                 Zerr Bible Commentary for Genesis thru Esther

Notice:  So far I have tried to keep the Spelling, Punctuation, and/or Grammar Errors to a minimum.

You will probably find some in any or all of the Books for Genesis thru Esther.

Sorry about that, but I don't have time to go back and look for them.

If you correct all of these errors in any or all of the Books, please post the update and share with this forum.

Thanks for your help.  I am now working on the Book of Job this weekend.  After that, i will start on the Book of Psalms.
