  • Re: Convince me: Hermeneia/Continental Commentaries

    [quote user="Unix"] Are You ready to omit verses and/or refer to Hermeneia when You teach why a specific passage that is not omitted in any Bibles, should be omitted? Do You expect the high-school students (who don't have and won't afford to for many years to have the Hermeneia set) to easily agree on the statements. Well on second thought probably

    [quote user="Unix"] But I talked to a 20-year old girl in a small Pentecostal Church today at 3 pm local time, over here in Sweden. She is in Sweden this summer (and I guess all summers) to take a driving license. She is studying in the US in a 4-year Bible College that leads to a degree. The Bible College uses the KJV and says that not too many commentaries

Despite the search functionality You need to read through a lot to come to the valuable conclusion and the points that make difference (regarding for example the critical ones, You know every critical remark doesn't actually make

  • Re: Convince me: Hermeneia/Continental Commentaries

    [quote user="Unix"] Well do You think the authors of homiletical commentaries in their turn relied on homiletical commentaries or technical critical ones? And what should Turner rely on when it comes to Q ôheleth? Personally, I use Believer's Church Bible Commentary for it, and considering purchasing the Ep volume also. [quote user="George Somsel"]I

  • Re: Convince me: Hermeneia/Continental Commentaries

    I guess it would be useful to know what I use Logos for. I would consider myself firmly on the conservative side of the fence, even though I may get strange looks from time to time from some of my Southern Baptist friends for not towing the line in some areas. I enjoy studying critical scholarship because I like to know all of the information so that

  • Re: Seeking Advice On a New Dictionary

    I very much like the AYBD and the IVP Collections. Some would say that you get a liberal bias in the AYBD, whereas the IVP volumes are more "conservative." I like both personally. I like the volume and breadth of books that you get with the IVP collections. I like the IVP background commentaries for quick background, which I often even use in church

  • Convince me: Hermeneia/Continental Commentaries

    Ok, so 50% off on this set is a great deal. What I want to know is, do I really need it? How good do you feel it is? I currently own WBC, PNTC, BEC, NIGTC, NAC, Socio-rhetorical, NIVAC NT, and some other odds and ends, and I have the Hermeneia Enoch vol 1 in hard copy which I like because I like to study extra-canonical literature (which is part of

  • Re: OT: How we Got the Bible Question

    Also, even though the MT is in Hebrew, the copies we have are dated at best after 800 AD or so. The Septuagint is dated back to 200 or so BC, but it is in Greek. It is also better preserved than the MT, but again, it is in Greek. The Dead Sea Scrolls are the key, which represent the Hebrew text of the Hebrew Scriptures (OT) from about AD 200-Jesus'

    [quote user="D Bouey"] I want the individual Beale volume, too. However, why it is that more often than not the worst motive is ascribed to Logos at the outset? [/quote] I don't assume that at the outset, but over a long period of action on the part of Logos. If you notice, I don't think that they have ever explicitly blamed the publishers for making

  • Logos has compounded my annoyance!

    OK, so I am already annoyed by the fact that so many good books are strategically placed in sets by Logos so that we will spend more money, not because of requirements by publishers as has been strongly implied in the past. Then we had the thread about Beale's New Testament Theology which many have wanted for a long time (as it was asked for here ,

  • Pseudepigrapha not linking correctly

    I have the Pseudepigrapha sets from both Charles and Charlesworth. When I open a reference in L4 it correctly opens in Charlesworth, but the exact same link opens in Charles on the iPad. Is there a way to prioritize to Charlesworth on the iPad? I figured it would take the settings from my L4 account. The links in question are from The Apocalyptic Imagination

  • Re: Spurgeon's Sermons on CP

    Amazon is my go-to place for information on anything that I want to buy, so I naturally headed over there to see what the paper versions are going for. It seems that you can get the 5 volume set for no less than $50 new (up to about $100), which of course would not get you tagging and the other benefits of Logos, so for me, $75 seems like a fair price
