  • Re: Prayer in the Church Fathers - A request for help from Catholic/Orthodox brothers and sisters.

    I am Lutheran, but have spent a fair amount of time with some of the Fathers... I would start off with what the Ecumenical Councils said. The first two are largely about the doctrine of God, and Constantinople 1 has given us the "Nicene" creed we still use today, granted in various translations and debate about the filioque added in the West... The

  • Re: using Logos for theological research

    I hesitate to disagree with Mark Barnes, who has given countless users quality advice. That said, I would go about things slightly differently, holding off on using Commentaries as long as I can. First of all, I would re-read 1st Corinthians - ideally in a translation different from what I am used to. This can be either a radically different English

  • Re: Confused about guidelines. Is there a place for theological discussion?

    Words are important. And the first word to notice is that they are Guidelines, and not rigid rules, or terms of service. There are many times when conversation has drifted beyond those guidelines, and I have participated in some of those discussions. That said, there is a lot of wisdom in those Guidelines. The users of this forum includes sometimes

  • Re: Any hot rumors on MM?

    Like many others, the bundle size for MM just seems way too much for me, even if they won. That said, I found the Verbum fathers collections smaller, and found a few that would be attractive since I had most of it already (eg. Athanasius), and for better or worse a few where I already had all of the collection (eg. Justin and Irenaeus). I certainly

  • Re: I don't understand...

    As someone who has three printed volumes of the NCP Augustine series within arms reach right now, I am both excited that they are finally coming to Logos as well as put off by how expensive they are. That said, I have more than a bit of hope that some volumes from the NCP set will eventually make it into base packages, topical collections, etc. This

  • Re: Are the 3 KJV the same?

    My installation of Logos 8 has three versions of the KJV text, and I believe they are the same three versions that have been in the software since Logos 4.0 days, namely the Cambridge Paragraph, the 1900 Cambridge, and the 1769 KJV that has been in Logos since the beginning. I will fully admit that I don't know the exact details about which ones are

    Oh my. This whole discussion is almost certainly both off topic here and beyond where I would be qualified to speak. But here goes anyway... When I had a rather liberal religion professor who based on his study of the thought of John Hick was able to talk about what John Hick would say about a topic even before Hick wrote a book or article on that topic

    I am aware of the problems some of my PB's have with the Logos 8 compiler. But I have not systematically gone through my files to see which ones have problems to fix them - since the compiled ones I actually use work. I made a choice a while ago that if Logos brings an official version of a book I released, I would not update it. I am glad that you

    Back when this collection came out, my father took me to a "Jesus Seminar on the Road" presentation with Dr. Hal Taussig where this volume was promoted. My opinion is that like just about everything that comes out of the Jesus Seminar, the PR is grossly overstated and much of their talk that theirs was THE scholarly view is a simplification, that in

  • Re: The first protestant

    From what I understand, the "easy" answer is that the term "Protestant" comes from the protest made by the Evangelical Princes after the Diet of Speyer in 1529. In the view of the "Protestants" the Diet in 1529 where the Emperor was not present improperly set aside a ruling of the Diet of Speyer of 1526 where the Emperor was there. The ruling in question

  • Re: Lexham Survey of Theology - feedback

    Like Sine Nomine, the first portion I looked at to see theological bias was in the sacrament section. In my case, I started with Baptism to see how it fits with my Lutheran understanding. I do not mean to engage in theological discussions, which indeed would be against the forum rules. But to critique the Logos resource, I offer the following: The initial
