  • Re: The first protestant

    [quote user="SineNomine"] MJ (and others), which books on Christian history (and parts thereof) available from FL do you find the most helpful? [/quote] For the specific question of the OP, the problem is that to truly answer it, it would require a much more in-depth understanding of the various schools of medieval thought - much of which is locked

  • 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

  • Re: Any thoughts on this set?

    [quote user="Rick Ausdahl"]Wow! I've been doing a study of Genesis 1, and have read through many, many pages in several commentaries. I'm impressed with how well this commentary has taken all the various views and arguments I've been reading through on verses 1-3, and synthesized them clearly and neatly into just a few paragraphs. For someone who wants

  • Re: Anyone else on a go slow?

    Yes it has for me. But I have been having lots of re-indexing, and so assumed that was it, and it would be fine once it stops wanting to rebuild the index just about every time I load.

  • Re: Any thoughts on this set?

    I got on the Christmas Special CD's about a dozen years ago. I found it to be decent set, but have generally not used it after my library grew and I had other sets. Pulling up Gen 1.1-2, we get this treatment: The Beginning of Creation (1:1–2) The Bible begins with a statement unlike that which can be found in any other known creation story (including

  • Re: Detailed History of Southern Baptist?

    [quote user="Justin Gatlin"]Fun fact, according to a prof I had in undergrad (secular). Protestant as "one who protests" doesn't come from the reformers, but from the RCC. It probably means "pro testari," for the testimony. So it was the Papists versus the Protestants. Those for the Pope versus those for the Scriptures. [/quote] A bit of a zombie thread

  • Re: Free Books

    Good catch! Not new for me since it evidently was in some base package I have had over the years, but they could be useful for some. That say, be aware that the Episcopal Church USA changed from this Sunday Lectionary to a version of the Revised Common Lectionary. That said, the 3 year Sunday Lectionary above for free is quite significant historically

    Pretty sure I picked up the Aulen volumes in a Lutheran base package at some time, but can't say when exactly that was.

  • Some random initial impressions of the Logos 8 packages

    For a while I was one of the more vocal Lutherans here – although I admittedly have not been active here lately. Since L8 has rolled out, I have looked a bit at the Lutheran packages… As a word of background, I describe myself as an over-educated lay person. I do not have, and never had a teaching office at any Lutheran church. That said

    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

    [quote user="Paul"]I guess that for Protestants at least, its simply a case as to why you should read them.

There are some who try to just read the Bible and say that is enough - and I would even agree that

    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.

    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.

    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
