    David Paul wrote: " I have some misgivings about these Logos categorizations. Maybe they are correct...but maybe they aren't. These text/context scenarios are certainly something which needs both interpretive attention and interpretive wisdom, but for FL to make the interpretive "choices" for customers and tell them, "This here is X, and that there

  • Re: Elohim sense categorized as deity vs idol

    Biblical language is just not that consistent. The meaning of any word in Hebrew or Greek is ultimately determined by context, and context, and also context. That messes up a lot of great sermons, but 'tis true.

    ESV (has become my "go to" translation for its accuracy or translation) NIV ('84) (Was my "go to" translation, but moved to ESV because my congregation cannot buy a NIV ('84) NLT After that I go to the Greek (NA 28) for New Testament and the Hebrew (BHS)

  • Re: FAITHLIFE IS MORE LIKE A BUSINESS

    I do not mean to be insulting, but I find this post bewildering. Of course, Faithlife is a business. Who said otherwise? It happens to a business owned and operated by Christian people. who love God's Word. That is my conclusion after being a customer for more than 25 years. Like any business, if they do not make a profit, they are soon out of business

  • Re: Early Church Fathers PB Table of Contents

    I would love to have it for the Fathers of the Church series also. I also suspect this took a lot of work to create.

  • Re: So...what would make you buy more books from Logos?

    I Faithlife could offer Abingdon Press' edition of The Bicentennial Edition of the Works of John Wesley, which is the only scholarly edition available. It is not available in Logos format. But that would move me to make a major purchase. For someone of a Methodist / Wesleyan theology that is a major problem and oversight by Faithlife.

  • Re: Apple Silicon M1 Chip

    [quote user="Gregory Lawhorn"] [quote user="Mike Binks"] I wonder how well the Logos App will run on the Apple Silicon. [/quote] Apple claims that Intel apps will run faster on M1 with Rosetta 2 than natively on Intel. I confess that I am sorely tempted to pick up a MacBook Air (which has always been grossly underpowered for my needs/desires). [/quote

  • Re: Offensive Grudem Second Coming Headline

    I am not for making a big deal out of it, but it is obvious that many people dislike the "second coming" headline. I doubt the use of the phrase attracts many people, and it does turn away some. If I were the author, I would not want my advertisement to be a turn off. Why would any writer? I would say pointing this out does the excellent writer a favor

  • Re: C. S. Lewis Upgrade?

    Of course, it is not Logos format, but because C, S, Lewis is not under copyright in Canada, many of his works are available from Project Gutenberg Canada for free. At least you can get them to read there. I did that for years until Logos began to publish them, and then I bought them from Logos.

    [quote user="William McFarland"] I've always like the New Bible Commentary. I have it in hardback and electronically. Very solid. [/quote] Me, too. When I want a one volume commentary, it has been the New Bible Commentary for over 40 years.

    [quote user="mab"] But I don't need to look at it all. And I don't. And most of the time neither should you. You don't need to understand Logos either, especially at first. I've been with it for more than a decade and I sure don't. You use it to help you understand the Bible and that's one verse at a time. Focus on using Logos to do just that. Forget

  • Re: New Interpreter's Bible?

    The New Interpreter's Bible is far better than the old Interpreter's Bible in that it has included some evangelical scholars. it is much more balanced, overall. So, if one is Wesleyan in theology, I do think it is worth having. My favorite commentary series is one you already have - the NICOT/NT set. But it has far more scholars from a Calvinist tradition

    Mark, am I right to assume that The Academic packages are only for students or teachers? In other words, not for pastors?

  • Re: Best Values Among the Logos 9 Base Packages

    For me the Logos 9 upgrade was a great opportunity to build my library. By purchasing the Anglican Platinum package for $636.32, I was able to add all of Carta, complete several of my commentary sets that have new or updated volumes, add several excellent commentary sets, add much Patristic or Church Father material, and much more. After that I added

  • Re: So, who else has found L9 to be a bit...underwhelming?

    Personally, I like this upgrade. But not for the reasons that many others will. It has been a long time since a new "feature" has been an important reason for me to upgrade, though I have not missed a Logos Bible Software upgrade in over 20 years. That was when they gave us the "passage guide". That is the last feature that I have gotten excited about
