Bob has indicated that he views notes as equivalent to what one writes in the margins of your Bible. Thanks to Brown's blog I can agree!!

"Here are some of the items that will go in my margins:

  • Notes – Black pen
  • Topical heading for chain references (similar to Thompson) – Blue pen
  • Chain References (similar to Thompson) – Red pen
  • Parallel passages
  • Translation notes, variant readings – (maybe in green)
  • Definitions – English, Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic (including terms like monotheism, eschatology, etc)
  • Chapter headings
  • Subject headings
  • Fulfilled prophecies
  • OT quotes
  • Time chart, timeline
  • Alleged scientific mistakes
  • Alleged contradictions
  • Updated names (Esias = Isaiah, Noe = Noah, etc)
  • Study helps from other study Bibles – Full Life, Greek-Hebrew Key Word, Prophecy, Promise Keepers, Defender’s, etc
  • Apologetics – Oneness (one God, salvation, holiness, gifts of the Spirit), the Bible (science, archaeology, etc), Creation, also- Angelology (Angels), Bibliology (The Written Word), Critical Thinking, Ecclesiology (The Church), Eschatology (The Last Things), Hermeneutics (The Science of Interpretation), Pneumatology (The Spirit), Soteriology (Salvation), Theology Proper (The Person of God), Hamartiology (Sin)
  • Arguments against false doctrine
  • Doctrinal rebuttals
  • General facts
  • Commentary from other authors
  • Note at beginning of each book showing chronological order
  • References, sources, and citations
  • Drawings, charts, diagrams
  • Controversial topics (including archaeological, etc)
  • Popular sayings (by preachers, etc)
  • Helps – daily devotions, building good habits (including 7 habits of highly effective people), one year reading plan, etc.
  • Timeline of Church Fathers
  • Notes from “I don’t have enough faith to be an atheist”
  • Important dates and timelines (book of Acts, gospels, etc)"

I'd post a picture of myself gloating but that wouldn't be very nice, would it?

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

If you think there's a chance this will get implemented, go back and take a look at the (short) list of feature enhancements in Logos for Windows over the last 7 months.  That ship has left the dock, we're on to mobile devices, Proclaim, Vyrso, Faithlife, and who knows what else now.

I hear Facebook is thinking about getting into the bible software business. They are talking to Faithlife, Inc, formerly known as Logos Bible SoftwareWink
