  • Re: Connect Loeb volumes: what's the deal?

    Good news, Francis. These are indeed the Loeb volumes. The Greek and English volumes are available separately. I picked up both the Greek and English editions of Hippocrates this way. And, yes, dynamic pricing works with them. They're not exactly the same as the Perseus volumes, although at first glance there is little difference (e.g. they include

    [quote user="Randy W. Sims"] Andrew, Here is a small modification ... [/quote] Many thanks, Randy. That seems to work for the first collection I tested it on at least. I think ideally I would remove all references to publishers and series, leaving just authors. I would then add about another 1000 authors to cover Logos Ultimate (which incorporates all

The view that most scholars support? Most scholars don't think one Isaiah could have written Isaiah, because they believe that no one could have predicted so accurately

    3. On Hermeneutics in Hebrews "There has been widespread disagreement over the hermeneutical technique used, with some interpreters arguing for a Philonic type (see Philo) of allegorical exegesis (e.g., Sowers, Spicq), but most recent studies (Hanson, Longenecker) have shown a much closer correspondence with Qumran pesher, Jewish midrash and typology

    2. On Hellenists If all academic questions were settled by vote, the clear winner in the precinct of Acts 6–8 would be Baur and his Hellenist party. All the same the choice would not be unanimous, and the incumbent’s future would not be assured. Scholars are asking new and substantial questions about the validity of Baur’s interpretation

    I hope many of my comments above have illustrated that this is not just about checking statements that begin "most scholars say...". There are a whole host of different uses, but on a similar theme, I thought I'd add a couple more comments. Here are three examples from IVP's big black dictionary series that remains a bestseller in Logos. 1. On Hell

All the software would say is that a particular book by someone who is happy to self-define as "Feminist" agreed with such and such a view

    Thanks, MJ. It is indeed not about "true interpretation" (see my response to Dan above). The expression "fact check" drew attention, but the project is about so much more than just being able to fact check expressions like "most scholars say". Hopefully, I demonstrated this with regard to Jude, even if the tools to delve into the data and display it

    [quote user="Al Het"] 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 that others are "teaching" against Scripture. This goes for books, sermons, or casual conversations.

    [quote user="Dan Francis"] One person's fact is another's heresy. It is an accepted fact in most scholarly circles that Paul did not write the pastorals due to their vastly differing style from his unquestioned letters. While many more conservative scholars would say it is an undoubted fact Paul wrote it because his name is right there. It is one thing

    Thanks for the positive start, Denise. You often seem to be among the first to respond to my posts. I'm often torn between trying to over explain, and writing something that contains ambiguities and then just responding to whatever misunderstandings arise in other people's posts. Maybe by now I should be better at heading these off, and I can certainly
