  • Re: August FBOTM - Biblical (+Systematic) Theology

    Paul, I have the current Berit Olam series and find it useful because of the approach taken. You will find that the Google Books website will give a good sample of pages that will present the approach of the book of interest. Another place I will always check is the Best Commentaries website, often first because of the links to Google Books and WorldCat

  • Re: The Canon of the Bible and the Apocrypha

    The contents of the Apocrypha have been treated in a variety of ways by the various Christian traditions. Many are surprised to find that it was included in the Geneva Bible and also in the KJV at the beginning. Whether or not the Apocrypha is essential very much depends on ones fundamental assumptions related to the Canon as influenced by their faith

  • Re: How do you write articles?

    I agree with JT. I use multiple software systems for my study needs and really only trust the usual office oriented packages for document crafting. I have experienced too much unhappiness when proprietary systems change formats and I now prefer formats that may be read by multiple products. There are many inexpensive or even no cost tools available

  • Re: What features/datasets did I just get?

    Thomas, I agree! I always followed this kind of detail in the past versions and I really missed it in Logos 8. Yes, I am the kind of person that reads install logs or follows the console screen on systems the gives detail on exactly what is happening on the system. In the old days I used to watch the light panel display patterns when the IBM 1130 booted

  • Re: Mike Heiser Special Edition Logos 7

    It does not show up as a Base Package in the About Logos Software panel (I am still on Basic by this report). Under Features it does report "Many Logos 8 Features" and under software it reports version 8.2. —Joseph

    In relation to the value of the Mike Heiser Special Edition—this was the first engine I have purchased since Libronix. Yes, I have added books, but I waited for the no-cost version of the L5 through L7 engine when I could not longer activate books on Libby. This package pushed the correct buttons on my books wanted list (a bunch of original language

  • Re: Carta!

    The Carta Bible Atlas is a newer edition of the Macmillan product. I have the revised Macmillan Bible Atlas from 1977 and the 5th ed. of the Carta Bible Atlas still contains those features you liked—still in the two color style for the maps. Shalom, Joseph

  • Re: Exegetical summaries returning to their former glory

    Whyndell, USB connected 3.5" floppy disk drives are pretty easily obtained in the $10-$20 range. They are actually useful for reading those old files. Perhaps you know someone who has one of these USB Floppy Disk Drives. Me, I'm looking for the USB based drive that can read 5.25" and 8" floppies. Yes, I know—it's time to get rid of all that old

  • Re: Is the Ancient Christian Commmentary (ACCS) worth $170?

    Marshall, welcome to a wonderful stage of life! I am five years ahead of you and I find time to study and reflect in a very focused way. Why is this important? As I stated in my previous post, I become keenly aware that issues of today match, in many ways, issues of he past. The basic nature of sin and its manifestations have not changed. We of more

  • Re: Is the Ancient Christian Commmentary (ACCS) worth $170?

    By studying the early church fathers, one discovers that certain ideas arise, are debated, refuted, defended, rejected, suppressed, and reappear for the process to repeat. There really is nothing new under the sun, and we may actually learn from bad behavior of the past. Being humans, (said in that sneering Ferengi accent), we like to think that we

  • Re: Cornerstone Biblical Commentaries feedback?

    Since I enjoy the NLT, I enjoy using Cornerstone since it interacts strongly with this translation. It is somewhat like using the notes in the NET for that work. Take a peek at the Google Books preview of Matthew-Mark. https://books.google.com/books?id=iv3RCwAAQBAJ&printsec=frontcover&dq=cornerstone+bible+commentary&hl=en&sa=X&ved
