I second this very strongly. Having these resources in my Logos library is a God send; I used them regularly on the Perseus site, but not as much as I would have liked, due to the clumsy interface. Now they're in Logos I look forward to putting them to even better use. Smile Yes

Me, too,

I was afraid that there would be too much of ancient languages, but "Greek-English" versions of works is a great thing.

I hope I will read this, or my growing daughters may caught up later :-)

I know their free, but, I am contemplating if I would use these resources.  They seem very esoteric/academic in regards to typical Bible study usage.  I do not want to add resources without understanding how I could benefit.

How do you use the resource(s) Jonathan?

Oh, hey brother, I cannot concur with you enough, I have been thanking Logos the whole time for this incredible software, but now 3000 free volumes?!

Unbelievable! In my recent research interest (possibly doctoral dissertation) studies of Rhetorical analysis of the Bible, I have been telling everyone how much I desired for months now the ability to study the Greek classics since so many of the dictionaries use them to help us define words in the Bible that appear very few times, and what does Logos come out with? What do I see pasted to the front home page of Logos software? What do I see?

Perseus 1100 volume collection of THE GREEK CLASSICS???!!! What???!! You guys are scary. Down right Holy Spirit stirred.

Ohhhh but how the plot thickens. . . I click into it thinking hundreds of dollars, maybe close to a thousand, and I'm already scheming ways in my mind of how to make this thing work, put it on a payment plan for the next ump-teen months, school loans, and whatever else. . . and what do I see?. . . "Price 0.00"? !!! . . . Huh? I seriously asked myself, "What in the world does "Price 0.00" mean? That just could NOT register mentally. I did a double and triple-take on that one, let me tell you. I thought, no, I was convinced my computer needed restarting or something. Seriously, I thought I lost connection to their server . . . 1100 (well really 3000) for FREE?

Seriously?. . . FREE? No "strings"? No "fees"? No "trial periods"? No, "we'll just hold on to your credit card information until you finish your order"? Wut? Who are these people? Just when I think I got Logos figured out, just when I tell people I cannot praise you enough for the difference this has already made in my life (and continues to make) and in the lives of those around me, you guys pull a stunt like this--wow--lol, lol, lol (look at me, I'm delirious now)

I don't know how you do it Logos. I don't know how you know to time these things, but your team does some pretty divinely inspired stuff. I NEVER heard of a company staying in business with free product. That's Holy Spirit activity there, my friends.

Does the Logos team have some permanent prayer team for these issues? I'd like to get on that team! I do not know the kind of Christian I would be without it; I kid you not; that's the level you guys are in my walk. I may not have won the Logos scholarship but this is worth more than any scholarship I have been awarded. 

Incredible guys. I truly wish I could work for Logos. I would move to Seattle with my wife for that if God opens the door. For now, though, I'll keep the military chaplain gig. Great job.

Does anyone know how big these resources are? Are they in megabits, or the gigabits range. It would be nice to have large collections have an estimate for how much room they need to have on your computer.

J,  according to this thread, Bradley estimates 1-2 Gigs for the initial download and then another 1-2 Gigs for indexing.

 

...and Yes, Big Thanks to Logos!

Thanks indeed!

Considering all the work that has to go into every resource to make it compatible with the rest of Logos, this is amazing.

MJD, I second you questions. I ordered them and then cancelled because I thought "Why am I ordering these, I'll never use them?"

 

Nevertheless, it is a generous offering by Logos.

Peace, Shawn!        *smile*

You are using my picture!

In reply to your Lexham Bible post, I wrote ...

Peace to you, Shawn, and to my Logos Forums Brothers and Sisters! *smile*

 

and! Always Joy in the Lord!

I am confused and perhaps a bit perplexed and thinking about being upset .... BECAUSE!

My picture is on your post! What gives, eh?
