  • Re: How many reference books consult to write 1 sermon

    [quote user="scooter"]In very general terms, as a pastor, how many books do you consult for each sermon? [/quote] Besides Bibles (several in English, plus at least one original language Bible - depends on the text), I'll also consult a lexicon from time to time, at least three, and often more commentaries, a Bible background commentary or two, sometimes

  • Re: Psalm 110:1 word study

    [quote user="Into Grace"] I’m studying the Hebrew word “ לַֽאדֹנִ֗י ” (adoni) found in Psalm 110:1 . I want to (1) determine how many times this word is found in the Old Testament, and (2) the range of meaning for this word. A search of the manuscript form of this word (“לַֽאדֹנִ֗י”) using the Lexham Hebrew Bible yields

  • Re: Question About Longevity of Logos on Mac

    [quote user="Tim Nargi"] A report came out today that Apple plans to make their own chips for the Mac by 2020 instead of relying on Intel chips. I'm guessing this means that FaithLife would have to rewrite their software to support the new chips. My question is, does FaithLife always plan to support Mac and PC? Is that stated anywhere? They had to do

  • Re: are purchased resources always available to download/redownload if for some reason license is lost by Logos?

    [quote user="Stephen Smith"] So, if someone bought that book or the entire series years ago before vol 2 disappeared would they still be able to download it say in the case where they do a new install on a new computer?[/quote] My understanding, from what Logos has stated and from experience, is that the answer to that is "Yes." I believe this is part

  • Microsoft Common Language Runtime Native Compiler (?)

    On the last couple of updates Windows has popped up a message asking if I wanted to make changes to my system referring to running the Microsoft Common Language Runtime Compiler. I used to see a message about running NGEN. I no longer see that message, but now I see this one. I looked at the release notes and didn't see anything there about the change

    Are you also reporting these via the typo dialog from within in Logos? That is the preferred way to do this sort of thing.

  • Re: MM: Let's get serious for a second about commentaries...

    Any commentary set will be uneven: some will be very good, others not so much. If I were you, I'd create a long-term plan for myself to get NICOT/NT and WBC. To those I'd add the Pillar Commentary series. (I'm preaching through John right now and Carson on John is excellent!) I've found WBC to sometimes wander too far into some of the less "inerrency

    [quote user="Alexander Fogassy"]But sometimes I am interested in why translators chose to translate that specific word (morphology and all) into the particular English rendering. I'm using NASB as my baseline, but I'm not tied down to it. [/quote] There have already been some fine responses to this. To those, I'll add my two cents. Words are strange

The Faithlife account is under my name, as I got a lot of it during seminary. Here's my question. My wife is starting a seminary program in the fall which includes a Logos package with a lot of resources we don't have. I'd love

    [quote user="Dave Hooton"] You shouldn't have a Pending folder if the software updated succesfully i.e. if you restarted Logos when notified. Restarting Logos or the computer should update Logos, remove the Pending folder and LogosCom.exe will be in the \System folder. Alternatively, do a Repair from Control Panel >> Programs and Features.

  • Smart Tags stop working LogosCom.exe moved/delted

    Yesterday I noticed that SmartTags stopped working. In trying to get it to work using the script provided, I got the error message "LogosCom.exe not found" and gave the location where it was supposed to be (.../%AppData%/Logos/System). Eventually I found the file in the Pending folder. I copied it to the System file and all worked. This morning SmartTags

  • Re: Please remove the asterisks in Hermeneia

    [quote user="Kyle G. Anderson"]I would very much like to get rid of them as well.[/quote] Please don't. The Hermeneia series is based on the NRSV, and it's helpful to have quick access to the NRSV text when looking at this series. The asterisks are small an mostly unobtrusive, plus once you know what they are, they're easy to ignore when you're reading
