    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. [/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

  • 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.

    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
