  • Re: Ancient Christian Writers Bundle (Newman Press) and Ancient Literature DB

    Sorry, I should have explored more fully before posting. It seems the tagging is uneven, but, properly tagged resources are present. I am sorry for my exaggeration in the initial post above. I love the Ancient Literature section and I am glad to see that more and more resources are being properly tagged with time. I realize this service isn't monetized

  • Ancient Christian Writers Bundle (Newman Press) and Ancient Literature DB

    I just grabbed Orthodox Diamond for the Ancient Christian Writers Bundle. I already have the Paulist-Press and St. Vladimir's sets, but there are some works here not in the others and I also wanted other translations. I especially can't stand the ANF/NPNCF translations, so wanted something a little more current, even if most of these are still 50+ years

  • Re: New Journals - next publications & crown sourced functionality

    I'd really like as many journals in Logos as possible, and keep them as current as possible. Logos is always my preference because it keeps track of my annotations--any time I return to an article, I can see my previous notes and highlights. When I read something on ProQuest or ATLA, it's a pain to copy quotes or make notes to begin with, and even then

  • Re: Timeline Tool Question

    I'd be curious to hear how (if?) anyone currently uses the timeline tool. Perhaps the "time period" tool would be a better name. It does not seem to have an usefulness for looking at events chronologically in time (scrolling left to right), but rather for looking at bunch of events that occurred at a given point in time (scrolling up and down).

  • Re: Bloomsbury Bundles on Pre-Pub...Academic Discount is Deeper?

    I guess it's still only ~16 a book, compared to about ~30 a book for the anchor yale reference library ones. I can probably go in for these. Looks like they've been here forever though, backed up at least 3 years...

  • Bloomsbury Bundles on Pre-Pub...Academic Discount is Deeper?

    I am definitely interested in some of these pre-pubs, e.g., https://www.logos.com/product/156330/the-library-of-hebrew-bible-old-testament-studies-2017 but the pre-pub discount is only around 40% on any of the sets when if they were published I'd get around 60% with academic discount. Is there any plan or consideration to have academic discount impact

    [quote user="Rick Brannan (Faithlife)"] It is the 2nd edition, but note the Greek text in the Logos version was created around the same time that Holmes was about to publish the 3rd edition. We provided some typo reports in the Greek to him, and he confirmed they were issues and also provided some additional typos and corrections. So the Greek text

  • Anyone with Holmes' Apostolic Fathers in Logos can confirm which edition it is?

    It looks like there is still no 3rd edition in Logos, but if someone owns the old one can you confirm it hasn't been updated and it's just the product page that is old? https://www.logos.com/product/3937/the-apostolic-fathers-greek-texts-and-english-translations I started a uservoice for the 3rd edition, but I just wanted to check and make sure. https

  • Re: MM duplications and overlap

    Well, hopefully no one is buying them now anyway. The campaign says there will be deeper discounts after the 4th. Maybe they'll have the basic arithmetic of things worked out by then, but always good double check. caveat emptor.

    [quote user="Ken McGuire"] I hesitate to disagree with Mark Barnes, who has given countless users quality advice. That said, I would go about things slightly differently, holding off on using Commentaries as long as I can. First of all, I would re-read 1st Corinthians - ideally in a translation different from what I am used to. This can be either a

  • Re: using Logos for theological research

    Your question will be addressed in a few places: 1) the introductions of your 1 Corinthians commentaries, 2) in the commentaries, journals, and monographs that intersect with particular verses in 1 Corinthians (e.g. 1 Cor 15:12), 3) excursus columns in commentaries, 4) dictionary entries on 1 Corinthians or Corinth For 1, you can pull up all your 1
