  • Re: How to quote a plagiarized resource (or not).

    I suppose that professional academics may have somewhat different standards, but from my understanding of plagiarism, you site the sources you used . So if you used it and it has influence on your work, you should site it. Even if it was not appropriately intellectually honest, you still should be, and not claim someone else's work as your own. Perhaps

  • Re: Original language lookup

    I admit it has been a bit since I have tested this, but the Desktop application should be able to do this - assuming you have the relevant resources. The ESV bible with the ESV reverse-interlinear can take you to the Greek, where you should be able to look up the Greek in any Greek Lexicon for which you have a license. That said, I personally think

  • Conversion error in The Hammer of God

    I know, I know. Vyrso books are automatically generated from the files the Publisher gives you. But I have found what seems to be systematic error in the The Hammer of God. I was reading it on my phone and saw the term "bodytext" or "bodytexts" more than a few times. This sounds like a style not the text that should be printed. A quick look at a few

  • Re: Error when compiling a personal book

    The Warning statements are common when you compile PB's with MS Word Tables. I have seen it countless times - and yet it worked fine. The Error statements are where the problem lies. The problem is the Error statements are a bit less than clear. If I were you, I would start testing the first half, and then the second half to try to narrow down where

  • Re: How long since significant finds of ancient manuscripts?

    Often the marketing blurbs do seem like overstatements. That said, the Dead Sea Scrolls were published in their entirety only in 1991. I do remember back when one of the selling points of the Anchor Bible commentaries on Samuel were that the author had access to and interacted with the various DSS fragments that were not all yet public.

  • Re: Adulterated Bible presented to Catholics and others

    So D-R has been edited over the centuries. Yes, the exact edition in Logos could be (should be?) clearer. Unfortunately this is not unusual for Bible Translations in Logos. Faithlife is getting clearer about this. They have been pretty clear that the KJV's they offer are not an attempt at 1611, but are rather later editions. Luther 1545 is not really

    All three were new to me - in Logos at least. Have the Romans and Galatians in print, and in a previous Anchor sale, the Romans volume was one of the last cuts I made to stay in budget. The Verbum free book is up as well. Actually I had that one already, but the additional highly reduced price volume was new to me. If you are interested in the Fathers

  • Re: Logos and Verbum interface

    Officially, Logos and Verbum are separate desktop programs that can read the same resources. So officially, you would install Verbum from the website - which gives DL install links. Unofficially there is a command in Logos ("Set Verbum to yes") which will make the Logos desktop look like Verbum - and then "Set Verbum to No" to put it back. Generally

  • Re: Verbum Now Member Benefits for September 2017

    For better or worse I see the split between "Logos" and "Verbum" as more of a marketing thing than anything else, and so tend to group Verbum in with the various denominational collections on the Logos side of things. Separate platform? Yes in the sense of separate home website and having parallel programs like "Now." But when I can turn my Logos installation

  • Re: Laptop Processor Help

    Logos 7 requires the same books to be installed in all setups. And so your laptop will have the same books as your desktop. Depending on the size of your library, this could eat up a lot of SSD space between the books themselves and the index. Having a larger SSD will give you more growing room as your library expands - while also letting you use your
