  • "Subject" in Library filter

    I was looking for some books on the early chapters of Genesis . So I opened the Library and filtered by Subject, choosing "Bible O.T.", then Genesis. Doing so will not show me some very important resources because they're classified under "Genesis 1-11" or "Genesis 1-3" or "Genesis 1". (Yes, I know about the search function, but it's an extra step that

  • Classic NT and OT works

    There are lots of historically significant New Testament and Old Testament works available for Logos which makes those missing a bit more conspicuous. Here are a few: Martin Kähler (especially Die sogenannte historische Jesus und der geschichtliche, biblische Christus and Die Wissenschaft der Christlichen Lehre ) Heinrich Holtzmann ( Die synoptisclien

  • Re: If You Got the New Hermeneia Judith Today

    I may be missing something, but the heading at the start of the table of contents looks identical to that of VanderKam's Hermeneia work on Jubilees. Judith: Jubilees: The Logos version does seem to reflect the actual printed version.

  • Re: What Are Your Biggest Problems and Pain Points?

    About the only thing for me is SineNomine's #1 (and other aspects related to that). As Phil requested, this is not a Logos gripe other than being embarrassingly spoiled by things like PBB. But to take say, music manuscripts (say ones provided by IMSLP.ORG) such as Handel's "Messiah", would be a rich, biblically based experience for me.

  • Re: HELP: Fact Checking NAC: Luke use of Babylonian Talmud (Sanh. 25b)

    I should add, though, that it almost doesn't matter what they were really like since Luke (and other NT writers) wrote to an audience that may have had a negative perception of the way they were. And, as Rich's citation suggests, the NT does a lot to speak against that perception.

  • Re: HELP: Fact Checking NAC: Luke use of Babylonian Talmud (Sanh. 25b)

    You are right to be suspicious. This is the same odd jump many scholars make when they assume rabbinic writings accurately reflect a "monolithic Judaism" or even a Pharisaic Judaism in the NT era. (I think it's even worse when social science methods are applied to NT exegesis based on the assumptions that Mediterranean societies worked the same way

  • Re: Cyber Monday Bust

    I'll admit I was a bit confused by what was what. I had read about the hourly deals ahead of time, so I knew I needed to look for an hourly thing. But with the clock counting down, I can see how one would think everything on the page was valid all day long. Customer service is usually very gracious in such matters, however.

  • Re: Looking for Comments & Opinions on Interpretation: A Bible Commentary Series

    I agree with MJ's assessment. I'm decent handling technical details on my own, and I frequently consult this one for additional ideas or sometimes to highlight another facet. I use it fairly regularly in spite of the fact that I have a bajillion resources at my disposal. As with any series with various contributors, some volumes are better than others

    I agree with Graham. It's not overly technical and often offers refreshing insights.

  • Re: Faithlife Connect Question

    It may be worth considering that buying the Full Feature Upgrade only gives the full features currently in the set of features. When other features are added, you'd have to buy something again (although with dynamic pricing).

  • Re: Why two Anchor bible commentaries on Revelation?

    I've never known Anchor to fear being accused of being innovative (a.k.a. "liberal" to some ). Now, I've given no effort to get an official explanation from Yale on this particular issue, but here's my 2 cents (one cent per point): A) As you know, it's common for volumes in a series to be refreshed for any number of reasons. B) But in this case, the

  • Re: Greek Vocabulary Cards

    Testimonial evidence may not be worth much, but I used to write my own; maybe a couple thousand or more of them in various languages. I think there's merit to what Doc B said, especially if you learn well by writing. In my case, my "distinct" (translation: "sloppy") handwriting was both a benefit and a liability since I would associate the remembrance

  • Small bit of Deutsch

    When I opened the app today, the placeholder text on all the text boxes was in German. The search box, for example, said, "Bibelstelle oder Suchbefeh" (cutting off at the h) instead of "Enter passage or search". All other language specific components (menus, etc.) were correctly in English. After confirming that my language setting was, indeed, "English

  • Re: Best price you have seen on Barth's Dogmatics?

    I don't remember the sale or the circumstances, but my order for it 2 years ago was 64.80. There was a bit of dynamic pricing making it lower than whatever sale price they had at the time.

  • Re: Disappionted- again!

    [quote user="Joseph Turner"] Just for the record, I am against linking citations to an edition other than the one originally cited. There is too much of a chance that the edition could have changed the information being cited. Unless there is some way to provide a suggested citation to the new edition, but this is a slippery slope. [/quote] I'm with
