I know how to create collections in Logos 4.  However, what I want to do is create a collection of paraphrase bible translations.  Is there a way to search for these in the Library?  What's the syntax to find them?  Further, the only one I can find in Logos is The Message.  What about J.B. Phillips or The Living Translation or The Jewish New Testament (I'm not sure this is a paraphrase)?  Are there others?

Thanks and God bless.

Looking at the chart on page 96 of How to Choose a Bible Version, it looks like the Message is the only true paraphrase in the Logos packages.  You can buy the Jerusalem Bible and the Living Bible if you choose to.

The only true paraphrased bibles I have are the Message and The Living Bible (different to the New Living Translation). I leave them out of my English Bible collection because the versification is irregular.

Are there other English paraphrase Bibles out there?

Floyd Johnson:

Now we get to the "contemporary" language versions:

  • The Contemporary English Version (CEV)
  • God's Word Translation
  • The Good News Translation (GNB)
  • New Century Version (NCV)
  • New International Reader's Version  (for people to whom English is a second language)
  • New Living Translation (NLT)

But they claim to be translations and have regular versification.
