  • Re: STUDENT DISCOUNT CUTS? :-(

    How does one know if Faithlife/Logos/or whatever is either making money or is viable if it is a private company that limits disclosure of sales figure...unless of course someone has made such information public so that we are...absolutely...accurate in all statements about this company.

  • Re: Logos Now

    I would only point out that companies like Ford Motor Company relied on its founder (i.e. Henry Ford's personality and integrity) to assure the success and continuation of the company. Yet, much like Ford Motors, such reliance on a personality didn't always turn out so well when the founder died or vision didn't meet the changing market conditions.

    [quote user="David Paul"] [quote user="Thinking"] That is the problem. If the dataset isn't very important, who would subscribe? If it is important, the desktop version is in effect somewhat crippled, thus making it a "requirement" to continue subscribing forever.

  • RE: Logos NOW

    My interest in all this is my relatively small investment in the electronic library that I have...quite small in comparison of others I suspect. As a business I am somewhat fascinated with the notion that Faithlife will not try to soak as much money out of it's "customers" as they possible can for profit. It is the nature of business in a Capitalistic

  • Re: My take on Logos Now

    I find that all I want is less bells, whistles, gadgets, pretty pictures, whizz bang thing-a-magigs, and endless "opportunities" for great deals on 100 year old public domain works. I still wait on Paul Tillich's work to be added (if not recently) since he was a foundational figure in 20th century theology. So what do I want...really...less fluff with

  • Re: Comparing Software

    Logos is the Cadillac of Bible software....it is the most for the biggest fee for an endless supply of books most of which your pastor will never use. It is terribly sophisticated and requires extensive background to master in order to use it effectively. Quickverse is a older product with much more limited amount of resources that is, perhaps more

  • Re: When Bible Software Marketing Crosses a Theological Line

    Sometimes I wonder if the marketing dept. at Faithlife could be a more powerful service to the Church than any of its software products.

  • Re: When Bible Software Marketing Crosses a Theological Line

    Never really had another poster say that I was a pro Faithlife customer much less that I worked for them. In the real world I work for a local psychiatrist. I was merely pointing out that the most successful, and least buggy, part of Faithlife is their excellent marketing department that seems able to assure each of us that whatever we have bought isn

  • Re: Quality control in Logos 6 - a new perspective

    I find it incredibly frustrating to post on this site. Every generalization seems to be opposed by someone somehow by injecting that "wow" that statement isn't true because it isn't true for me. The point of the thread and post is a critique of the quality control issue for a product from a company that sells a very expensive bible library product.

    Clearly having a monopoly in a field does not assure an equally dominant product from that field.

  • Re: Taco Bell and LOGOS.COM

    In some ways the very nature of a Capitalist Company (although supposedly Christian in content) and the various resources it offers of a substantial nature (books) related to various subjects does make this topic relevant to the software...imo. More and More Faithlife/Logos is reaching into the culture using marketing techniques to cross the cultural

    It's a private business that has the right to function in any or all ways they feel appropriate. While it might be offensive it seems like a small issues for a couple of taco's I guess.

  • Re: Logos by Subscription?

    My only interest in a subscription is to gain access to theological journals that otherwise seems to be problematic for Logos to produce regularly...and only at a very "reasonable" cost per month.

  • Re: "Valued Customers"

    Perhaps the key to fully appreciating the power of Logos is to prepare for a world of academia with some minor ministerial activities on the side. The power. The abilities. The insight. The magnitude of knowledge at ones finger tips. Truly an amazing instrument. It has a place and a purpose for many who serve the Kingdom of God. Yet I am not sure that

  • Re: "Valued Customers"

    In a general sense I made the mistake of transferring my tangible resources into literally nothing...a few electrons maybe. While I have some 2900 resources most of those are junk that just litters my hard drive instead of items that taught me how to think theologically. This junk includes lots of old materials, limited diversity of opinions, and books
