  • Re: Why did Jesus Come to Earth?

    [quote user="Mark Smith"] [quote user="Dennis Davis"]In this Christmas season, many of us are working through Christmas sermon series on the birth of Jesus. I am doing the same but it just occurred to me that I'm not entirely sure how to go about using Logos to help research the question, "why did Jesus come to Earth?" I can find the answers I need

  • Re: Why did Jesus Come to Earth?

    [quote user="Dennis Davis"]...how would you start to research the broader question of "Why?"[/quote] Why questions are difficult in part because they are ambiguous. For example, are you asking about the purpose of Jesus' birth, or about Jesus' motivation, or something else? In other words, are you asking about the intended result, or impetus? Why questions

  • Re: New Believer - Where To Begin

    [quote user="Michael Kinch"] I am working with someone who as an agnostic but is not examining the claims of Christianity through some apologetic books that I have shared. Now wants to begin reading the Bible. Do you have any suggestions for resources to recommend or study plans? Thanks! [/quote] Where to start depends somewhat on the personality of

  • Re: Configuration connection between NIV and commentary

    [quote user="Bill English"] I can't scroll the Biblical passage and then scroll the commentary independently. How do I remove this connection?[/quote] The simplest way to do that is to remove the link from the commentary. This article in the WIKI explains how, though you probably want to remove the link from the commentary, rather than the Bible (which

  • Re: How to resolve course issues when a resource is pulled for plagiarism?

    [quote user="Miles Custis"]In this case, Carson's commentary is a good choice to replace the Baker links...[/quote] Carson's commentary on John is absolutely excellent. I don't have the mobile ed course, but I'm preaching through John and have found his and Morris's (NICNT) to be the most helpful.

    [quote user="Dale E Heath"] Now it's back to slow again, ever after running ngen. I think it's a matter of running too many things at once, downloads, installs, etc. Dale Heath [/quote] (If NGEN doesn't run when you install a Logos update, maybe it's the beta that runs NGEN whenever it updates.) However, if you run it manually, you will probably not

  • Re: Best resources for preaching application

    I'm with Francis on this. (Where's the "like" button?!) I'd also say that a great resources for application is the folks in the pews. Many of them are already living the truths we preachers preach about. How do they do it? What do they do? But I'd also like to challenge to ponder the question: "What is application?" For some it means that you need to

If I wanted to purchase the products, I think after 15,000 resources, I can determine for myself to do so. It is invasive and unwanted conduct. Thanks. [/quote] Posting here may

    [quote user="Rodney Jenkins"] I encounter this (cf. p. xxx) often but want to know how I find the "cf" - "confer", or "compare". What is the document to "confer" with, or "compare" to?

    [quote user="Sacrifice"] Randy, Many thanks. Even though you spelled it out wonderfully, that is probably beyond my capabities. I tried it from the first post you made and gave up. It will be a huge project and I know me I’ll want to add every theological term in existence to it, not just the Bible. So there goes more time... I want to thank you

    [quote user="Michael S."] Has anyone heard who will be the publisher on sale in October? [/quote] No. But, given we are nearing the 500th anniversary of Luther's nailing of the 95 Theses on the door of Wittenburg, I wouldn't be surprised to see Concordia Publishing House be highlighted, if not the featured publisher.

    Is this something the whole country is doing, or is this some kind of commemoration in your denomination, or ...? Also, is this a Sunday to honor Israel, or to call it to repentance for it's treatment of Palestinians, or something else? As a Reformed pastor in the US (Christian Reformed Church), I can tell you what I do with such things: usually I ignore

    I can think of two alternatives (given what has already been written here): Treat it as if it were a single print copy: One writes in the book, the other on a separate piece of paper (or in a separate Word file, etc.) One of you use the Notes feature to write answers/responses. (I don't have a workbook in Logos that can accept direct input, so I'm not
