  • John Bachman - The Doctrine of the Unity of the Human Race

    John Bachman was born in 1790 in New York. He moved to Charleston, SC in 1815 to serve as Lutheran Pastor there. He became one of the most important leaders of Lutheranism in SC. At his recommendation, the local ministerium set up an academy to train pastors which has since expanded into Newberry College. In addition to his parish work serving segregated

  • Re: Exodus & Numbers in the "Interpretation Commentary" Series

    Too many books - too little time. And so we have various recommended commentary lists. For better or worse, the Church is fragmented - and this fragmentation expresses itself in what reference books we consult. In general, the Interpretation series is by US Mainline scholars to serve as an easy to read source for their pastors. It aims to always put

  • Re: BUG: Why does Logos discriminate against the Lutherans (with regards to the Book of Concord)?

    Impressive documentation of the Logos BookOfConcord datatype. As you have seen, it is not ideal - and not what I would go with if I were coming up with a data structure from scratch. But it is surprisingly functional while we can hope and pray for something better.

  • Re: Question About Longevity of Logos on Mac

    This is all guestimates, but Apple Mac has successfully made the transition between very different hardware architectures twice before - namely from the 68000 family to PowerPC, and then from PowerPC to Intel x86. While there have been hickups on the way, it was generally able to work because so much in the Mac world is done by OS system calls instead

  • Re: Non-Evangelical Systematic Theology and Theology Resources

    Going with your interest of Trinitarian Theology, I would recommend at least the following: Athanasius of Alexandria - On the Incarnation - preferably in the Popular Patristics series . Gregory of Nyssa - Not Three Gods to Ablabius Basil the Great - On the Holy Spirit - Popular Patristics (same collection as Athanasius above - we need this pre-pub to

    Glad you both got it to work and are finding these books useful. I also hope that the official edition will happen without too much delay and make a better offering that Bill made, to which I tweaked a bit.

  • Re: Same books in multiple Book Series of Church Fathers? Don't want to purchase duplicate books

    There are classic works that appear in multiple sets - yes. But personally I think of the sets that have Patristic works the following way: Early Church Fathers - a 19th century Protestant set that is half-decent at Ante-Nicene with a decent selection of Augustine and Chrysostom afterwards, but is extremely thin otherwise, although it does tend to catch

  • Re: BUG: Why does Logos discriminate against the Lutherans (with regards to the Book of Concord)?

    [quote user="Sakarias Ingolfsson"]At least for Ap IV:122-400 and XII:98-178, the milestones do not fit the surface text. Perhaps this is true for other articles as well. The reason is probably that in some versions of BOC these paragraphs are numbered differently. [/quote] It has been a while since I have dug into the details of the BookofConcord datatype

  • Re: Contours of Christian Theology [8 vols.] on sale: Your opinion please

    I have not read the set and so cannot give the most informed opinion. That said, I have read more than a few articles by some of the authors in the set, and respect their work. As much as I respect the great classic works of theology - and wish my theological education had emphasized their study more - I also recognize that there are specific issues

  • Re: Personal Book Builder (PBB) Error - unable to fix

    The only advice I have is to split the book in two to find the problem, and then keep on doing this to the "problem" section. In general this will either get you to a page where when you look close, the problem will be obvious, or a small section where you can't see the problem, but can re-key without too much of a problem....

  • Re: Personal Books

    If I understand what you are asking, what you need to do is make sure the text is marked as a Greek text in your Word Processor. I use MS Word 2007 (I know - stone age now), and do this by clicking the Language box on my Status Bar at the bottom of the screen, or the "Set Language" box in the Proofing section of the Review ribbon.

  • Re: Fathers of the Church Series (127 voluimes). Entirely comprehensive?

    To my knowledge there is no such thing as an entirely comprehensive edition of the Fathers. The one you mention is probably the most complete edition in English at this time. Of course, Migne is even more comprehensive if you can handle the Latin.

  • Re: Linking a personal book with a regular Logos resource

    The wiki provides a decent reference at https://wiki.logos.com/Personal_Books . Please do check it out. Exactly how you would do it would depend on exactly how you want it to behave. Do you want it to link to ANY bible, or to a particular translation? If you just want it to scroll with a bible, all you have to do is add tagging in the format of [[@Bible

  • Re: Patristic References/Citations

    At the risk of talking down to you, let me try explaining how many of the patristic references are made. Someone wrote something in some language in the ancient world in some language. The author may have given it a title and divided it into "books". Even if the author didn't do this themselves, often this was done in in the ancient world. Most of us

  • Re: Ancient Christian Texts Collection

    Since you have Silver already, take a look at " Athanasius: The Life of Antony and the Letter to Marcellinus " in your library and try reading a few chapters to see if anything grabs you. This volume from Classics of Western Spirituality is pretty good and somewhat representative of many things you will run into in other writers in how it integrates

  • Re: Ancient Christian Texts Collection

    When I went to school in the 1990's, while there were a few figures who were consciously making sure that they interacted with the great exegetes of the past, this was generally something done by only a few - and those few were generally very fluent in the original languages. Since then there has been a flowering of interest in Patristics from a wide
