    Don't know if it has something to do with the server change, but I could not post this using Internet Explorer. I had to use Firefox.

  • Why I decided to take the Hermeneia/Continental Commentary Deal

    Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE I would have posted this in the other thread, but that thread has moved on to other subjects, and I wanted people to get the end result. I know that I said that I was going to pass on the deal, but I couldn’t stand it. Why? 1. 1. It is unlikely that I will ever find another deal like this one for this set

    [quote user="Eric Weiss"] [quote user="james e snow"] I see. Thanks.[/quote] I had the same question - i.e., how does 39 + 31 = 63? But then I saw that the OT and NT sets both contain 7 of the same volumes. So it's either (39-7) + 31 or 39 + (31-7) = 63. [/quote] Ah, I get it now...math...good job.

    [quote user="james e snow"] What am I missing? I see the collection we are discussing with 63 volumes, but I see an OT collection with 39, NT with 31, and 2 upgrades with 3 and 2 respectively. So without printing out the lists and comparing I'm assuming the sale collection doesn't include 12 volumes? [/quote] The 63 volumes include the OT and NT sets

I went to other online bookstore to check out some of the sample. I already have Anchor Bible, NICOT/NT, WBC, NIGTC, PNTC. I

  • Strange Tab Behavior

    Ok, as of the last couple of updates (not sure which), whenever I have a number of tabs, such as after a passage search where I have my 5 tabbed Bibles, whenever I click on a different tab, it is like it doesn't want to go to that tab. It is almost like a memory issue, where it is struggling to display the new information, but it shouldn't be that.

    [quote user="Eric Weiss"] I don't have $600 to blow on this, but it might be crazy to pass this up, especially with the non-canonical commentaries. It looks like the 63 vol. set includes Upgrade (1) http://www.logos.com/product/4704/hermeneia-upgrade but is only missing Upgrade 2 http://www.logos.com/product/17913/hermeneia-upgrade-2 Decisions, decisions

    [quote user="Unix"] Watch out regarding the 4 Esdras -volume. As You can see from this page: http://www.logos.com/product/7756/hermeneia-new-testament#026 ... it's bundled with the NT. So that likely means that the title regards 4 Esdras 1-12 as a Christianizied book. I oppose that view and suspect those who say that to be the same ones who claim that

    [quote user="George Somsel"] That is the problem with a position that is doctrinally oriented rather than faith oriented. We are called to believe in Jesus Christ, not to accept certain teachings. If one must accept THEIR interpretation of Genesis, e.g., in order to be considered Christian, how much else must one accept doctrinally? If someone differs

    I think my friend was lashing out against anything that required more than a surface level understanding of the text. In his defence though, he has apparently been looking into the issue for a long time. It just seems that he only reads pro-(his position) works.
