Big Smile Yes, this was another joke.

Does the Logos Humor Patrol approve?

Would the word "Logos" make meet minimum requirements?

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

This is not my experience from prison ministry although women felons are a bit of a different group than their male counterparts

Due to current & ongoing personal experience I must agree that there probably are a bunch of innocent people in prison.

But to avoid raising Terry's ire I will say no more. Zip it!

I think I was wrong! I finally find one thing that has the same function with the Dictionary of the "Complete Biblical Library":

New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology (4 Vols.)

and

New International Dictionary of Old Testament Theology and Exegesis (5 Vols.)

These two are produced in one consistent set (as the Complete Biblical Library does) including both NT and OT. And, when I compare the way they explain the word, it is pretty much the same (but these two are more lengthy, thoroughly)

Please see if you agree with me too. I would buy these two sets if it is really better than the Complete Biblical Library.

Thanks.

FYI, Thoralf Gilbrant died in 2006. I had the privilege of serving as the Associate Editor of the Greek-English Dictionary for the Complete Biblical Library. Thoralf was a man of great vision whose greatest work (CBL) had the unfortunate fate of coming out just at the same time resources like Gramcord were being developed, and then later products such as Logos mad e it very difficult to market CBL.The scope of the work was unparalleled at the time, and the vision of a system that allowed those without technical language training to access the treasures of the original was extraordinary.

Thoralf was one of the greatest men I have ever had the honor of knowing, and the joy of working alongside for nearly 4 years.

Thanks for the information. I believe God will remember what he had built. I benefit a lot from the CBL actually. This is the first place that I have a tool to study the original words as a layman. And it is that Library open up my eyes so that I know there is a way to study the word of God more seriously (for layman). And only after that, gradually I know that some software can do similar job too. And finally I am here using Logos.

Thank the Lord very much.

And if you know more about how the CBL fades out. I would like to know more about it.

Thanks.

I met Brother Gilbrant as a grad student in Springfield MO. In 1987 I was a freelance editor producing the 1st English volume of CBL-- The Commentary on Acts. Tor Inge had a major hard drive crash and much time was lost. After receiving my M.Div., Brother Gilbrant hired me full time and I added a more extensive critical apparatus in the Commentaries and then became Managing Editor of the 5 volumes of the Greek/English Dictionary. Later I composed Vol. 17--The Greek Grammar/Index.

Mr. Gilbrant was a genius and added many features at the last minute, such as the cross references to TDNT, Strongs, Bauer, etc in the Dictionaries. As I explained the amount of research, proofreading/editing man-hour with a projected cost, as was his custom, he waved off the details and simply said these aspects were vital and Just do whatever is necessary. I loved that man.

At one point in about 1990, he was living in his small apartment in Springfield and was quite discouraged--which was not typical. The Lord brought to my mind a prophetic word spoken to me in 1981. The Lord said I would have opportunity to study His word (seminary) and that the ministry He was preparing me for would "not reach hundreds, or thousands, or even tens of thousands. The work I have called you into will reach hundreds of thousands..."

Upon hearing this testimony, Brother Gilbrant leaped off of his recliner and became very excited and animated. The Holy Spirit reinvigorated him and poured a fresh zeal and hope into his heart. I shall never forget that day, and dozens like it when we in Springfield were graced by his visits. I am happy to report that he was extremely pleased with the English version of his CBL.

If you have any information about Tor Inge, please let me know.  Your brother in Christ--Denis Vinyard

I agree. I own the The Complete Library NT in book format (a treasure to have) and I kick myself for not having bought the OT when they had it (the complete set was about $700.00 10-14 years ago). Now the competitor has it for $1500.00 in software format which, in my opinion is high robbery to say the least. 

If Logos would get their hands on, I would buy both with my eyes closed as long as they make it affordable, but since Mac for Logos is taking such a long time to come out, (I had to say it, sorry!), I don't see it as a real possibility in the future, but I would love to be "dead wrong." Wink

Not true, more like $500 if you know where to check for it or who to call.

If it's the one published by Gospel Publishing House then it is Penticostal. Many of the writings were writen by Stanley M Horton. But it will be good for anyone - Penticostals are evangelica.  I don't want to have to put two big bible progragrams on my computer myself - I wish they would hurry up and put the collection in print.

It's the people who wrote parts of the Library that most people are interested in. But yes, those two dictionaries will do just fine.

That is not the same product. The series they are talking about in this thread was created by Thoralf Gilbrant and published by World Library Press in Springfield, MO

I have owned two hard-copy sets of Gilbrant's New Testament production. My wife enjoyed them very much. I would like it in Logos but as Todd asked early on in this thread;  "It seems to me that Logos already has all those functions (greek/hebrew lexicons, interlinears, word study analysis, etc).  What features in particular do you like that Logos doesn't have?"

We can already accomplish every feature of the book version AND the software version using Logos 4. We can even customize the resources according to our liking. The only thing we must do is learn all the features of Logos 4. With the several instructional video sources and the catalog of fine resources we can have better study than Gilbrant envisioned.

Here are some training videos that will maximize your use of Logos 4:

  1. Camp Logos Live   brings the seminar home to you.
  2. Learn to Use Biblical Greek and Hebrew with Logos Bible Software
  3. Logos Academic Training  has a special focus for those in seminary (shipping next week)
  4. Learn to Do Word Studies with Logos Bible Software  without knowing the original languages! (shipping soon)

disclosure: I do own the software version of The Complete Biblical Library: New Testament in "other-than-Logos."  I speak not in ignorance when I claim you can supersede this work with Logos 4 tools.

I hope and pray that Logos will now get access to the "Complete Biblical Library" because Wordsearch has been bought out by Lifeway which is a Southern Baptist entity.  We Pentecostals/Charismatics are big fans of the word of God and love Logos, but we need our sets of resources.  Here is a sampling:

The works by Stanley Horton

Works of P.C. Nelson

Works of Thomas Holdcroft,

Works of William Menzies

Access to the Flower Pentecostal Heritage center documents (can be downloaded into logos) DREAM ON, I KNOW.

The Complete Biblical Library

Perhaps a Gospel Publishing House Collection

PNEUMA issues (scholarly publication of Classical Pentecostals)

All the issues of the Pentecostal Evangel, Advance, Enrichment, etc.

Thoralf Gilbrandt passed away in Feb, 2006.  He was a personal friend of mine, yet some 26 years older than me. He was a Dear friend of both my parents,who were pioneer missionaries to Mocambique,(where I was born) and later South Africa.  Thoralf Gilbrandt, as my parents, were of Norwegian descent, and my parents and Thoralf Gilbrant were part of teh Norwegian Pentecostal movement, affilliated with teh assemblies of God, in Springfield Mo.  The Last time I saw Thoralf Gilbrant was at the A.G. headquartes, together with Ralph Harris, and two other younger theologians, myself and then General secretary of the A.G., My friend Raymond Carlsen.  Thoralf Gilbrant and I had many conversations on eschatology, before I finalized my treatise on the "first resurrection and it's seven distinct and different orders". Of Course the A.G. did not agree with the biblical facts I presented, as they had "bought into" the fraudulent  Darby / Irving  "pre-trib" Rapture theory. (my book "None Dare Call It Deception" is available at my website. just google 'sorensen ministries'. Thoralf Gilbrant had a tremendeous knowledge in the scriptures, and I had the greatest respect for him. I believe few theologians of our day could hold their own with him. So much for you calling him and 'old Man'

Morgan,

We were informed in this post of Gilbrandt's passing. If he had not passed already, he would have indeed been an "old man" by everyone's estimation. I praise God for men like Gilbrandt who work so hard for God they get old doing it. What better way to spend one's life?

Rosie meant no disrespect stating the obvious. Her guess that he would not be involved in the publishing of his work in Logos turned out to be correct.

I bet you feel blessed to have known him.

I am translator of the Bible from Greece. If there is someone who has The complete biblical library of WordSearch, and he/she would be so kind to grant me for free a copy of the Program, I would appreciate it very much.

Thank you.

The Complete Biblical Library is not a Logos product. Maybe you should post on the WordSearch forum. It is also still under copyright so you should ask WordSearch for a free license. If they deem your project of translating from the Koine Greek into Modern Greek worthy of a free license, they may donate a copy to your efforts. Otherwise it sounds like you are asking for a pirated copy. 

Logos has asked that their forums not be used to conduct business transactions or to post things unrelated to using Logos software. Thank you for your efforts in Bible translation. Coffee

I have the CBL  NT17 vol set  printed edition and have acquired a 15 vol OT set without the 7 volume dictionaries. Curiously volume 17  of the NT set is a grammar and index which includes both the CBL to Strongs conversion numbering for both the  New  and Old Testament volumes in the 39 complete set. To obtain the 7 volume OT Dictionary could set one back up to $1500 dollars which is prohibitive. So I am wondering if the 50 or so pages dealing with CBL OT conversion numbers appear anywhere else as I certainly don't want to mutilate my index volume. There is no pdf download that I can find on the internet covering this which would enable me to swiftly access my private theology library which covers many Judaic/ Christian standard reference works ......probably in excess of 2,000 tomes.
