  • Re: A little help from Liturgical types (re: free October devotional resource)

    Please forgive me if I get really basic here. Since I don't know you and your background, I cannot get visual cues about when you get it, and so abbreviate what I am going to say... The Church Year is dominated by two big festivals - Christmas and Easter. Christmas is on a fixed date - December 25 here in the west. Easter, however, is based on a simplified

  • Re: KJV and Apocrypha?

    [quote user="Paul"]I guess that for Protestants at least, its simply a case as to why you should read them. [/quote] This is drifting way off topic for what is allowed in the forums, but I will try to answer anyway. There are many ways to read the Bible. There are some who try to just read the Bible and say that is enough - and I would even agree that

    [quote user="Paulo Andre Viana Fidalgo"] I have not yet used the uploadind option because of another question: if it is necessary to change the original docx that generated the personal book and it is necessary to generate another - to update the content - the previous file transmitted will also be updated automatically?

  • Re: reuse personal books in case of computer formatting

    If I am understanding what you want, this can be done already by uploading your personal books to Logos. After you do this, they will be automagically installed on all your Logos Desktop installations.

  • Re: Recommendations for resources about church history?

    Just looked through what Logos currently offers and I would recommend https://www.logos.com/product/3670/early-church-history-collection . The Stevenson/Frend collections are very good collections of writings from the early church. In addition Klauck will help you understand the Religious context when the Church was born.

  • Re: Support for Linux?

    I have followed Linux off an on since the 1990's. It does many things well - and probably the Internet would collapse without it. I personally use it for my Home File Server... But it has never reached a critical mass for the desktop. It seems like every few years there are prophets claiming that now is the time that Linux will break out - usually because

  • Re: Resource suggestions wanted

    For an overview of the historical theological debate, I would say John Behr's study , although if you want to save a bit, you could just grab the 1st volume which is available separately. Eventually you will want to study Against Eunomius , and this is probably the best edition of it in Logos. But the issues show up in lots of writers - and different

    My current favorite is the Oxford, which I was lucky enough to pick up on disk on close out about a decade ago. I have also used the NBC , The Bible Guide , and for their specialized perspectives, the Jewish Study Bible , and the Women's Bible Commentary . As for when I use them? General ones I use when I am curious about really basic information about

  • Re: Personal Book Page Numbers

    To the best of my knowledge there is no official way to insert page numbers automatically. That said, users have created macros to do this. I know there was one floating around that would put a page break every so many words or so - but since I wanted my PB's to match printed editions, I have never used it. It is conceivable to have a macro that recognizes

  • Re: Logos 8 release coming?

    Historically Logos has released new versions/packages right before various professional conferences and before the school year. While it has been two years since 7 came out with two years between many recent versions, if version 8 doesn't come out in a week or so, I strongly suspect it will not come for a while. And with the way Faithlife has been transferring

    First of all, while Logos/Faithlife does provide this forum to help customers, usually it will be fellow customers who will reply. I am one of those customers. I have been a Logos user since early 2002. Since then I have spent a fair amount of money with this company, and yes, it is easy to spend a lot of money on their products. And yes, there are

  • Re: Why are some books classified as 'Bible Commentary'?

    Both the terms "Bible" and "Commentary" from a historical level are not fixed concepts. As far the "Bible", while there was very limited argument about central books (eg. the books of Moses and the 4 gospels), the exact limits have varied. In your theological understanding, you may have a very clear understanding of where this limit is - but other Logos

  • Re: Anchor Yale Commentary

    [quote user="Denise"]Well, they're still missing Matthew (the original one NA).[/quote] Sort of. Back when I was in school in the 1990's, the (then) Anchor Bible did have volumes on all four gospels. The thing is that the volume on Matthew was not useful - and the volume on Mark was barely useful. Matthew (Albright and Mann) was one of the first ones

  • Re: Hardware question for Staff from Logos...

    My main Logos machine is a year old Dell that was low end (less than 400 bucks) when I got it. 7th generation i3. 6 GB RAM. 1 GB HD. 1 USB 3 port, 2 USB 2 ports. My library is Lutheran Gold, with various other books purchased over the past 16 years for a total of 8.5k books - and a Resource folder of 35 GB. When running Logos by itself on this low end

  • Re: Fathers of the Church - 60% off

    I have no idea, but it might be interesting to you to run the Bibliography tool within Logos to see what works and data type references are cited in the IVP commentaries. But personally, I am more interested in trying to understand how various of them think/understand/pray the faith instead of how exactly they interpret a particular scripture passage

  • Re: My Logos 7 is Snail Slow

    I currently run Logos on a machine with 6 GB and one with 8 GB. Neither is "snappy". Both are way faster than walking to the way I did things back in school - walking over to the library, looking something up in the card catalog or going to the reserve room, finding the dictionary and commentary references manually, etc... About a year and a half ago

    In general, the Ancient Christian Writers set has more introductions and notes. In print those notes are endnotes unfortunately.
