  • Re: Prayer books (Liturgy of the Hours) for non-Catholics especially Calvinists

    As someone who as used For All the Saints off an on for over twenty five years, this would be great. That said, unless somehow ALPB has some form of digital rights to all the fourth readings and various prayers of saints included that Logos would be able to use, getting rights for it would be almost certainly be enough of a nightmare that it would be

    [quote user="MJ.

  • Re: What are your top 3-5 resources in the different categories?

    English New Testaments: As a leader, you want to have on your priority list the English text that most of your people have in front of them, so whatever else I suggest, make sure that whatever else I say and suggest, you include it. It probably can fit one of the roles I am about to list, but make sure you use it - and know what roles it can do. 1)

  • Re: Why do some Jews not believe that Jesus is Messiah

    Decades ago on a religious debate forum, I recall a Jewish participant basically saying this: If Jesus is the messiah, then he would have brought in the messianic age. But in so many ways the world we live in is not the messianic age. But Christians, being so nice have decided to give Jesus a second chance....

    [quote user="MJ. Smith"]As the lessons/readings of the lectionary are by definition canonical[/quote] I see more than a little of your point, MJ. But the Anglican church has famously waffled on canonicity of certain works while admitting they are good to read and including them in lectionaries for centuries, and we Lutherans have often said similar

  • Re: Basic features for 1,189.24$?

    When I run that report I get a section "Septuagint Translation" that uses the "Logos LXX" but when I click on it, it does list Swete as an option to use for the report. Perhaps it doesn't work with the Greek-English Interlinear? That would be stupid, but computers and certainly be stupidly literal...

  • Re: Basic features for 1,189.24$?

    My understanding is that with Logos Basic, you don't actually "own" anything. Instead, you get a renewable free rental of things. Going from purchases to rentals is the way the market in general seems to be going with the digital world, and so would be a different negotiation between Faithlife and the rights holders... Since I am a long time Logos user

  • Re: Why two Anchor bible commentaries on Revelation?

    The Anchor Bible series has been going since at least the 1960's. In that time scholarship has changed in its focuses, and the Anchor series itself has evolved from being deliberately short works aimed at non-technical readers into a main-stream commentary. Some of the early volumes have not gone over well, and Ford's commentary on Revelation was one

  • Re: Personal Books

    Based on my experience... Yes, you need to change the font in the source file - usually made with MS Word. And then you need to re-compile it. This re-compiling it will change the font in this personal book, but should not change it in any other works. Of course, if you change MS Word defaults, these defaults will be used in future books you create

    [quote user="Sean"]The CUA series is vastly better than the Schaff collection, and also vastly more expensive.[/quote] True enough. But the CUA series isn't really that expensive compared with many works of more recent theologians. And while IMHO we should certainly study recent works, Augustine is a figure whose influence continues to be significant

    Well - there is "Confessions". That would be one of them. IIRC he also treated the opening of Genesis in some Anti-Pelagian writings, but the exact name of the treatise escapes me at this time.

It was unable to connect to the Logos servers to log into my account. When I DLed the Logos 8 installer, it worked fine though. So I can't say exactly what the problem is, I strongly suspect there

  • Re: Essential reference works

    For centuries there has been quite a bit of theological study on various early Christian witnesses in academic theology. Of particular interest to many is Ignatius of Antioch, who left us some letters that he wrote when he was being transported from Antioch to Rome for his expected martyrdom. The textual history of these letters is arguably complex
