  • Re: Favourite A. W. Tozer Books

    Interesting. I assumed that copyright had expired, since there are so many copies of Tozer's works published by different people.

    [quote user="Bruce Dunning"]It is disappointing but sometimes the publisher restrictions make it difficult if not impossible. Perhaps someday it will be in Logos.[/quote] I don't think that would be the issue any more. Tozer's been gone for a long time, and I think several publishers are printing his main works now. His stuff may well be public domain

  • Re: How to find if its true

    Something about looking back 2000 years makes it easy to forget that then, like today, people used words in slightly different ways.

    [quote user="MJ. Smith"]Remember that the grammar is descriptive i.e. it is a description of what grammarians see as the use in the language. That doesn't mean that an individual author always exhibits that use. The grammarians offer positive evidence not a declaration on its "truth".[/quote] What an absolutely great reminder.

  • Re: Please Explain the Negative

    I don't think it is that the commentaries explain the passages you mention as negatives, when they really are positive. I think that the actual passages mean them in the negative way. And, I would submit that the passages are often written that way, not to be more emphatic, but to be more precise. Sometimes stating a negative means something different

  • Re: The Impact of Digital Bible Reading

    In a setting such as this forum, you are most likely to get answers based on preference, as few of us have been part of objective studies. However, there have now been numerous studies done on retention with regards to paper vs plastic (electronic). People in the field of learning/memory almost universally say the debate is over regarding which reading

    Bob, I tried to give a quick read-through of the other responses, so my response might not be too redundant. I would affirm what many people have said. Your customers appreciate the ability of giving you direct input. However, I suspect that there are several who feel like I do, that the direction you are taking the company just happens to be different

  • Pastors, How do you use illustrations with Logos?

    After commenting in another thread about books in Amazon, it made me wonder how, or if, others are using Logos for illustrations. I know many pastors use Google as their primary source for illustrations, but I know there have to be lots of us left who keep and use personal illustrations. I have never taken to Logos Notes, but it sounds like it is getting

  • Re: Is it true?

    No one addressed your question about Prime, which is different than Kindle Unlimited. It is true that they offer a ton of free books with Prime, though I'm sure not as many as Unlimited. I've never looked for the Christian titles that might be available, and haven't ever used the free books anyway, as I just buy the books I'm interested in. However

  • Re: Best Scholarly Works on the Parables of Jesus

    Another vote for Blomberg's "Interpreting The Parables." It really is a hallmark work on how to interpret the parables. He gives a simple framework on how to understand several different styles of parables. His work was ground-breaking, with what was a whole new paradigm at the time, some 25 years ago. It received extremely high praise by scholars.

  • Re: Fact Check Preachers, Commentators and Other Bible Interpreters

    I'm all for fact checking anyone who is teaching you something about the Bible. I believe it is the responsibility of all followers of Jesus to check all truth against Scripture. However, in a software application like Logos, I don't believe the company would want anything to do with what you are asking. The purpose of Logos is to bring Biblical materials

  • Question for those who use Notes in Logos

    Reading and responding to another thread made me wonder about how others are using Notes in Logos - and maybe those who use and external note source as well. First some context. I'm a pastor who highly values the ability to store and then easily access useful information I come across, for teaching purposes. The computer age has made this radically

    My biggest, and ongoing frustration with Logos. They work hard to bring cutting edge software to the Bible Software table. This is very much liked, appreciated, pushed and encouraged by many people, including a significant amount of people on this forum. Many Logos users like that they keep evolving Logos into newer, more complex software. The biggest
