I am using Logos Bible Software 4.3 (4.30.0.1516) and created a pbb from my favorite devotional.  Someone kindly referred me to the following link: http://wiki.logos.com/Devotionals_in_the_Home_page#Selecting_Devotionals !  The only problem is that the instructions do not work with the beta.

My desire is to put the pbb devotional on my home page. Any suggestions.

Thanks,

PCMcF

Hi Graceman,

Graceman:
My desire is to put the pbb devotional on my home page. Any suggestions.

 

It works for me. There are a couple of things that you will need to do to create your own Devotional PB

 

Here is a sample tagged Devotional PB (checkout the way it is tagged for each day of the year): 4848.Test Devotional.docx

Next you will need to create your PB using the Personal Book tool in Logos4, below is a view of how i setup the book (make note that the Type is set to Calendar Devotional)

 

 

Then you will want to add your new PB to your prioritization list (as shown in the wiki page article that you have already looked at). Mine is shown below, notice the red rectangles

 

And lastly you will go to your Home page, you probably will need to press the F5 button to have Logos4 reload your home page. Then your devotional PB will show up somewhere in your home page as the one i built is shown (see red rectangle).

 

 

EDIT:

Graceman:
The only problem is that the instructions do not work with the beta.

You mentioned the BETA, you should be running the last full release (Logos Bible Software 4.3 SR-3 (4.30.0.1592) )

Peace, Steve!

          Your help is absolutely incredible!                 *smile*

Superb!

                         I feel inspired (at least at this moment!   -- *smile* ) to come up with my own devotional - tailored just for me! -- in addition to the quite the number of devotionals I have from Logos.

               ....   am grateful

Thanks for your help! You are right I am using the full release. Plus,  I had the type set to something other than "Calendar Devotional:". Your instructions cleared up the problem on my laptop running Windows 7.  On my desktop running Windows xp however using the same formula I get different results. There I have 3 other devotionals and Book of the day displayed on my home page now. How do I  add my PBB devotional or replace one of the three logos has put there.

Thanks,

PCMcF

PBs will not sync between computers yet. So this complicates things right now. i suggest setting up your devotional on the one that you use the most and wait for the next release. L4 will set both of your computers with the prioritization that you have made and since the PB is not sync'd the second computer will be confused.

Rather, Thank You, Steve!  For the insights!

           It will take me a long time -- maybe years if the Lord grants me years -- to finish -- probably never will!  But, what a Joy!

                       I will use this personal book devotional to remind me of Who I am and Whose I am and use it to focus in on our Loving God and His Holy Word on a daily basis, even as I do now; however, I can use my own Personal Devotional PB to aid me in this goal.

                I am entering great quotes -- great hymns -- great Scripture Verses -- great poems -- to be reminded of How Great He is and how much he has loved us -- and me! -- through our Lord Jesus Christ!

*smile*

                         It shows up on my front page as you indicated it would; and I will be improving and editing and revising it as the days go by.

                Thank God for Logos!  It's so easy to re-compile and to be always be at the "leading edge"!!!  Using Logos to condition my mind and spirit (dichotomy?) to live and to live life to the fullest!

As N.T. Wright puts it in another way:

“Our task as image-bearing, God-loving, Christ-shaped, Spirit-filled Christians, following Christ and shaping our world, is to announce redemption to a world that has discovered its fallenness, to announce healing to a world that has discovered its brokenness, to proclaim love and trust to a world that knows only exploitation, fear and suspicion...The gospel of Jesus points us and indeed urges us to be at the leading edge of the whole culture, articulating in story and music and art and philosophy and education and poetry and politics and theology and even--heaven help us--Biblical studies, a worldview that will mount the historically-rooted Christian challenge to both modernity and postmodernity, leading the way...with joy and humor and gentleness and good judgment and true wisdom. I believe if we face the question, "if not now, then when?" if we are grasped by this vision we may also hear the question, "if not us, then who?" And if the gospel of Jesus is not the key to this task, then what is?”
N.T. Wright, The Challenge of Jesus: Rediscovering Who Jesus Was and Is  (a much valued Logos resource of mine!)

Peace to you, Steve!               ...............           and to All!          *smile*
