  • Re: Logos, Please Consider Making the “Free” Engine Available Right Away

    This is a very complex, perhaps premium, program that requires a lot of work to get it into a reasonably useful shape. So having difficulties with bugs fresh out of the box is to be expected with a program of this size. I do understand the complaints that a customer expects full functionality of the program with minimum investment since each generation

  • Re: No more massive updates please

    I have very little interest in spending more money for (essentially) a pre chewed data sets from mostly conservative scholars (oh I know they don't have an agenda to grind) telling me exactly the same thing as a million other "bible scholars". Huge downloads. More money. Same information. Little intuition. More "facts". Similar results. More marketing

    Well when you have a monopoly on a product you get to do whatever you want to maximize profit. Not a bad thing just the way this kind of market dominance works in the favor of the company.

  • Re: A long time ago in a series of Galaxie Journals far, far away...

    In the long run neither a desktop app or a subscription will ultimately meet my needs...at least not for hundreds of dollars a year. More likely I will join the free journal service through the seminary I graduated from and only have one (lesser) bible program to use. Nothing wrong with making a profit from a private company. Nothing wrong with selling

  • Re: A long time ago in a series of Galaxie Journals far, far away...

    I sort of read through this thread with a jaundiced eye. My Logos icon just sort of sits on the desktop looking at me with a daily hope that maybe "TODAY I Will Be Used". One of the reason to maintain this minimum presence with a product that is increasingly becoming a paper weight...so to speak...is the hope for reasonably priced collections of journals

  • Re: Bible software fallacies

    [quote user="Sakarias Ingolfsson"] Some very interesting thoughts are accumulating here, so let me just recap what I have understood so far (maybe I missed something): Having access to a big library, and the powerful search tools offered by Logos, it will be easier to find support for a preconceived (possibly false) idea. At the same time an overwhelming

  • Re: Bible software fallacies

    I think that software that predigests your data (the text) tends to produce vanilla conclusions that look very much "factual"...after all the pretty graphs shows it's true.

  • Re: Does it EVER end at Logos?

    Again this sort of making an observation into a personal attack on the vaunted "morals" of this great institution. I really am not concerned about their faith, their morals, their religious tradition, and/or how they stand for Jesus. Since Logos is a business (as best that I can tell) the issue is price, quality of product, customer service, and other

  • Re: Does it EVER end at Logos?

    Surely an exegesis of words of the management of Logos is not necessary. I think this discussion is quickly becoming the standard argument in favor of Logos. If one criticizes the company on theological grounds well then the answer is they are a business. If one criticizes them on business ground then the defense is on theological grounds. The never

  • Re: Does it EVER end at Logos?

    While I can not question the personal conviction and witness of those of this company, or any other really, concerning their faith statement. It does seem odd to me to say in the same breath we are a "business" and were doing "holy work" by spreading the Gospel. I see no Biblical precedence in which profit motivate, efficiency of production, or marketing

  • Re: Marketing

    So they are both a sacred zone of the holy and a marketing oriented business living off the profits of its customers. Sort of making money for Jesus using the free market I suppose. The same arguments can be made for Christian Counselors, Christian Plumbers, and Christian Bankers...you know using religion to promote their business endeavors. The beauty

  • Re: Marketing

    While I don't post much I continue to be fascinated with the notion that Logos is, is this Incarnation, a "holy" business charged to serve the Church through a calling from God. What a great marketing gimmick this would be. This sacred business extends to high priced public domain products, weekend retreats, endless e-mails/flyers, push software, open

  • Re: Seminary Books?

    Perhaps one downside to total electronic library, which I found out in my D. Min program, is that once we get hooked on this delivery platform Logos drives the educational agenda. Theological education becomes the world according to Logos driven by what books the company decides to publish. Denominational distinctives begin to fade into the back as

    I would hope as the theological world turns that my electronic library, if it is to be relevant at all, would only be 50 or so revolutions behind the real world...maybe that is even to high of an expectation.

  • Re: Majority World Theology

    There are great holes in the theological library universe that Logos has produced. Why 150 year old public domain works takes precedence over more contemporary, many of which are seminal, leaves me saddened. Perhaps those who are on the advisory board has a rather limited view of what Christian is in this post-modern world.

    I sometimes wonder just how much profit a business must make before the moniker of "christian" is lost and company takes it place. It does strike me that asking for moderation from a multi-million dollar corp. (a guess) is sort of a self defeating proposition in that the forums says more about the posters than it does about the company...even when we
