    [quote user="Garrett Mercury"]I am one of the nicest and most patient people on the planet (!) but even I am getting cranky about the pink elephant.[/quote] "Elephant in the room" is a metaphorical idiom for an obvious truth that is being ignored or goes unaddressed. "Seeing pink elephants" is a euphemism for an intoxicated hallucination. (But we knew

    [quote user="alabama24"] Personally, I would rather have the few mislinked passages and submit them to Logos.

    [quote user="Chris Roberts"] Most likely this tagging all took place automatically [/quote] Possibly, Chris, but bottom line, (at least for me) as a customer of any business I'm giving my money too, I don't care nearly as much about how they create a quality product and try to ensure that it is, indeed, one that people like myself can be relatively

  • Sloppy, Sloppy, Sloppy (Sadly)

    I was excited to see “The Finished Work of Christ: The Truth of Romans 1-8” by Francis Schaeffer on Vyrso, at a great price no less, but am pretty disappointed in the quality of the tagging so far, (and I haven’t even read beyond the commentary narrative on Paul’s greeting yet). For example, an introductory reference to Romans 1:16-17 pops up Acts 1

  • Re: What is your all time favourite resource in Logos?

    Jesus Christ The Greatest Life A favorite for both the detail and readability of this Gospel-harmony publication, as well as the enhancements Logos provides with color-coding of source material, pop-up answers to end-of-section discussion questions and more.

    [quote user="Dan Pritchett"]The private sale is a way to get more personal. It is a real conversation with a human being, that can look over your unique account, licenses, history... and treat you like the unique individual and valued customer you are.

    Gotta love the business creativity on the part of Logos trying to staff their team: LOGOS OPENS PHOENIX DEVELOPMENT OFFICE http://blog.logos.com/2011/12/logos-opens-phoenix-development-office/ (But the real question is can you work winters in Phoenix, AZ and summers in Bellingham, WA.)

    "You can please some of the people some of the time..." While I know that we all use Logos and the resources in our library in different ways, and we all have different expectations of what books we find most valuable and want (hope) to pay for them - especially on the newer, broader-in-scope Vyrso site - I remain incredibly impressed with how the people

    [quote user="5 Solas"]Yes, to a big ticket items[/quote] I was actually thinking more along the lines of a few add-on resources currently in the $200-$300 ballpark, (i.e. Tabletalk), less Logos' 12 Days discount, but I suppose the definition of "big ticket" (and the hoped for discount) is in the wallet of the beholder.

    [quote user="DAL"]Hope this helps![/quote] Very helpful! Thanks! I decided to indeed purchase the Pillar Commentaries, not so much in response to your "PS" quote from the Book of 1st Hesitations, (inspiring as it was), but primarily thanks to the inadvertent temporary over-slashed price by Logos and the ability to spread the $ impact over a few months

    With Nelson repackaging a portion of the various "Lifeworks Libraries" into "Essential Bible Study Libraries" that seem similar, if not identical, to the average consumer, but in reality have a fraction of the resources and sell at a fraction of the price, (currently $10 each at Lifeway), I'm not sure how much of a dent it will make in helping with
