I didn't bother with the Logos.com sub-forum. I doubt they care, one way or another. Every since they intro'd the new-and-better site, there's been trouble in River City.

Below was a quick search I made, before heading for Amazon ... give Logos a chance. Now granted, no quotes (not demanded on Amazon). But I was amazed at just how naive the search strategy is. I wouldn't even put it at community college level. High school?

No thinning of filler words. No prioritizing on unusual-usage. Instead they delivered the best 'from' books. Woo-hoo!

Yesterday, they thought I'd appreciate changing 'Comptons' to 'Compton, Jered', even though they have a resource 'Comptons'. I really wonder if a Google-button might help out.

As it turns out, Logos.com has several Moshe Feldman volumes. Just not 'Joshua to Josiah':

  • In 1993, Weinfeld was awarded the Ben-Zvi Prize for the History of Palestine for his Hebrew book From Joshua to Josiah: Turning Points in the History of Israel From the Conquest of the Land Until the Fall of Judah, Jerusalem: Magnes Press (1992).
