  • 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

AB?[/quote] There was considerably less consistency - often authors rather than series were recommended. But looking at the various recommendations AB, Reading the New Testament and JPS came next on my wish list. [/quote

It is probably the biggest load of bilge foisted on Bible readers in the last thousand years.

    [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.

    [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

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

    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
