  • Re: ACCS v The Church's Bible

    The Church Fathers can be viewed as a never ending pit, or a rich well. While the 19th century "Early Church Fathers" set does have many important Patristics texts, it also has weaknesses - as does any collection, Personally I am glad I picked up

  • Re: Linking a personal book to scroll with a bible

    You can most certainly do this by tagging your Personal Book to be a destination for the Bible datatype. Basically, you would put tags like [[@Bible:Gen 1:1]] for whatever passage you are discussing. If you want an example of a PB that does this, take a look at where there is an actual Bible Commentary

    The default place is C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Logos\Data\RandomFigures\ResourceManager\Resources where UserName is your username on that computer and RandomFigures is some odd 8.3 name that Logos came up with when it was installed on your computer. And then, yes, the compiled files have the extension .lbspbb. I am an old command line nerd, so

  • Re: Thoughts on April sale's Dictionary of Luther and the Lutheran Traditions?

    In the past century "Luther studies" has had many developments - especially the discovery of Luther's early Romans lectures and Roman Catholics reading Luther with sympathy and telling us about how he actually fits the Medieval background. This dictionary is written by experts who are aware of these discussions. In spot checking, it has good articles

  • Re: Verbum Now Slim Pickings

    For Lutheran literature, there is a problem with finding things in English that are public domain. Luther: You are actually pretty good now at having the PD English Luther in your catalogue. There are some 16th century translations that would be of historical interest in how they influenced Anglicans, but I am not really an expert on those. What I am

  • Re: Verbum Now Slim Pickings

    As a Lutheran, I sort of feel your pain. When I look at Logos Now offerings that are Lutheran, I have a grand total of 3 that are new to me, other than a collection of Ambrose Letters and books on the Heidelberg Catechism that are mis-catigorized.

    The reason I am a Logos user is because Logos has had sufficient Digital Rights Management that they have been able to license many "top shelf" books into digital form. It started when I was getting tired of going to the local Community College library to look up articles in their copy of the Anchor Bible Dictionary, but there are many other such works

After Bonhoeffer did indeed die as a result of living out what he understood as his calling as a Christian, this work was translated into English and published as The Cost of Discipleship with
