  • Re: How Will Logos/Faithlife Handle This?

    I should have specified. Bruce's quote comes from an even earlier work of his, Paul: Apostle of the Heart Set Free , p. 401. This was written in 1977, which predates Rupprecht.

  • Re: How Will Logos/Faithlife Handle This?

    During seminary I have written two exegetical papers (on Ephesians and Philemon) in which I engaged heavily with O'Brien's work. With his Ephesians commentary especially I started keeping a running document of the instances in which he quoted F. F. Bruce verbatim without attribution. If you compare F. F. Bruce's NICOT volume side by side with O'Brien

    Hi Joseph, There are a couple of tips and tools that made life much easier for me when I walked this road before. 1. For vocab . The flashcard app called Genius worked wonders for me. Unlike conventional paper flashcards or digital apps that merely mimic paper flashcards cards, Genius uses a smart recall method. Its method really engrains vocab in your

    I'd like to see the works of the late Robert Lindsey in Logos. Lindsey did extensive work on the Synoptic Gospels with an emphasis on their Semitic background. http://www.jerusalemperspective.com/jp-kiosk-books/

  • Re: Comentary Comparison Thoughts IVPNTC and BNTC

    Black's volumes are a little bit older than those in IVPNTC, the volumes are written by Brits, and the authors' leanings would be more toward the critical side of scholarship. The BNTC set also does not cover the whole NT. However, there are no "stinker" volumes. Each one is solid, and some are even outstanding (Mark, Galatians, Philippians, 1 and 2

    [quote user="Mattillo"]Does anyone know how the concise version of the HALOT compares to the regular version?[/quote] The HALOT bundle is consists of five volumes, while CHALOT is a one-volume lexicon. A comparison can be seen below of a commonly looked up word . The first is CHALOT's entry, and second is HALOT. The two most obvious differences between

    [quote user="Everett Headley"] I think this is the exact resource you are looking for. I have found more nuggets in it than I will ever be able to use.

  • Re: Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament for $9.99

    I am thrilled to see this sale! I've been eyeing the Acts, Galatians, and Colossians/Philemon volumes for some time. Schnabel's Early Christian Mission work blew me away. After purchasing his Acts commentary and diving into it, I can say that it will be my go-to Acts commentary, superseding Bock and Polhill (and that is saying a lot). I feel like Pao

    [quote user="Paul Caneparo"] The problem with these sales for commentary junkies is deciding when to stop spending! Does anyone want to persuade me that I'm wrong to not have any of the following from the NAC series in my Logos library, as I now have the rest: Deuteronomy Job (have in Kindle when it was $1.99 - doubt I'll preach much from Job) Proverbs

    [quote user="Paul Caneparo"] Thank you Jonathan. I've now bought the Iain Provan volume. I did buy the Genesis one in Kindle format once, but returned within the week as it didn't seem very helpful on the passage I was preaching from. I do have access of the Galatians volume and so I haven't bought that one this time. Thanks for your feedback. [/quote
