So here are my lists of resources divided up into three incremental versions.

GREAT! Thats really great! Thanks!!

I tried to make a full list with all suggestions, but didn't have enough time (finally it was too nurdy for me Sleep - preferred to work on nurdy personal books).

This is how I like the incremental system. Maybe we do not need a lot of commentary works in Base Packages. The higher quality english commentaries aren't in base packages either. 

What I fear, when I think on the incremental system is, that the really pro-versions could get just too expensive for the German market. Sometimes, when I have a look on the english pro-ones I feel bad and sad. So I thank God that I own the SESB 3 (similar to the German Bible Society Bundle). But in my worst moments I wish luck & blessings to the rich & beautiful.  

So would prefer a combined Bundle-System like the other Bible-Software companies. So I don't have to buy resources I do not want and which hinder me to buy the stuff I need.

Hi all,

Things have progressed a little in the last few days and I would like to invite all of you to join me over in our very own Forum "Deutsch" .

All things German will hopefully collect there from now on, making it easier for those of us interested in German to find things on the Forum.

Since this is a thread that in my opinion contains very good information I am going to look into moving this thread into the new category in the coming days.


Here is to a hopefully great debate in our new German Forum!

(1) What resources would you suggest for possible German Base Packages?   

  • Bibles / Dictionaries / Commentaries / Church History / Lectionaries / Counselling
  • etc. 

(2) Which type of Base Packages would you prefer? ... thematic Base Packages (Theology, Biblical Languages, Counselling, etc.) or incremental Base Packages (as the english ones <-- the bigger and more expensive packages contain the resources of the smaller packages).  

After the "fruitful" discussion above.... ...maybe we should add the following questions:

(3) What would/should be the price-range of/for German Base Packages (B.P.)?

(4) How important are theological/hermeneutical presuppositions and denominational/confessional arguments for a german B.P.? For example:

(a) Would there be the need of German Verbum Base Packages too?

(b) What would be the real difference for Base Packages between possible "conservative" and "liberal" Logos users

This is a tricky question. My impression is that the German speaking community is not willing to invest a lot for a Bible program. So I give it a try but I don't know whether this is realistic or not :

Grundversion              120 - 150 Euro

Studienversion            299 Euro

Akademische Version 599 Euro
