  • Re: Personnel changes at Faithlife

    [quote user="Denise"] Independent of glass-door representativeness, my concerns: - A significant firing, to include families and children in mid-school year, should give pause to hiring good people in the future. That is worrysome for the amount of sophistication Logos tries to deliver. - Mark (other Mark) is pushing Strack & Billerbeck. I appreciate

    I am delighted by Bob's response. I really enjoy the product and I want the company to thrive. Hence, despite the risk of being flamed on this forum, I decided to speak up. I know this thread is being read by lots of Faithlife current and previous employees and I just want to say Thank You to all of you. i do appreciate your hard work and I will keep

  • Re: Personnel changes at Faithlife

    I would love for the company to prosper, because I have a large library and Logos is important to many Christian academics/ pastors. But as the owner of a large Logos library: If Faithlife were to close, would we be able to access our books? Would I have to keep one computer operating an old operating system just dedicated to Logos? Is there a backup

  • Re: FaithLife Restructure Affects Verbum Staff?

    Faithlife tried to expand into other markets aggressively. But the expansion strategy seems to have been poorly executed. The way it behaved, revenue seems to be more important to them than providing serving its customers with the best products with the best pricing. In order to finance its expansion, the cost of its products kept increasing. It seemed

    I did a comparison of the John MacArthur sermon and commentaries on John 3:11-21. The sermon was " Responding to the Divine Offer of Salvation." May 3, 1970. MacArthur, J. F., Jr. (2014).

  • Re: Undecided if Logos is right for me...

    One additional money saving tips: Dr. Constable's Expository (Bible Study) Notes is very informative and helpful. For most "non-professionals", his note is as good as many commentaries set and only cost around $30 on OliveTree and Logos. Dr. Constable was the Department Chairman and Senior Professor of Bible Exposition at Dallas Theological Seminary

    I use both Logos and Olivetree. The books on Olivetree are usually cheaper, especially with their frequent discounts. Logos engine is more powerful: in terms of original language ability (you do not have to know the original languages yourself because the software offers a lot of "clutches"), in terms of searches (e.g. checking who have cited a certain

  • Re: Logos has overtaken Accordance for good

    I am a user of both OliveTree and Logos. I have a large library in Logos and I appreciate its original language and search ability. My own experience is that Logos search is most valuable on resources such as journals, sermons, theology (such as Barth Church Dogmatics), and monographs. However, on OT, Zondervan resources are often sold for half price

    On Job 42: "And yet, to come back to earth, what has happened to Job’s question? It is all very well for the poet of Job to change the discourse from rationality to delight, but humans are rational beings as well as participants in delight, and what, at the end of the day, has happened to justice? Should we not be wary of poets who sweep questions of

    [quote user="Jack Caviness"] There may be organizations that are run by Christians, but there is not such thing as a "Christian organization". Logos is a for-profit business that is run by professing Christians. If they do not make a profit, we have no resources to purchase. Here in the States we have a name for a non-aggressive for profit company.

    Consumerism risks making the Bible as another product for consumption; commentaries collection can become idols if these books are for building ego instead of helping us closer to God. In consumerism, freedom is often equated with consumer's choice; and the consumer's need are unlimited and insatiable (Craig Bartholomew. Christ and Consumerism. http

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

    My background is different from yours: I am evangelical and non-academic. I found it distasteful when Luz said that Jesus made a mistake when he prophesied his imminent return in his commentary on Matthew 24. I had to detoxify my brain with Carson's Matthew commentary. Occassionally the commentary is brief (e.g. Haenchen's Gospel of John) and I go:

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

    The commentary on Luke by Bovon is exceptionally good and it is not representative of the remainder of the set. I don't think Volume 2 of Bovon's commentary is included in the set. Citing Parableman: "The Hermeneia series is noted especially for its comprehensive attention to parallels in other literature. This will almost invariably involve many speculative

    Please look into ZeBible. http://www.editionsbiblio.fr When I visited a French monastery in Provence I saw this beautiful French Bible for young adults. It is like the Application Study Bible but it is more "hip." The publisher has a Facebook page and they madeYouTube movies explaining why it is hip to be a Christian.

    I pre-ordered the set awhile ago: I am most excited by Seow's commentary on the book of Job. I hope he can shine light on the mystery of Elihu and solve the questions of suffering once and for all. I am not a big fan of Brueggemann: his OT theology is too challenging. He needs to learn from Job that we will never understand why God does not act the

    Thank you Brother Mark for your prayer. You will be glad to know that Gordon Fee holds a bible study in his living every month for seminary students and church planters in NYC. Over coffee and breakfast, he would dive into Paul's letter, one small morsel at a time. At first I thought these studies were going to be textual criticism of Greek genitives

One of the key lesson I learned is that the Bible should be savored like a delicious meal. Take it and eat it. It will turn your stomach sour, but in your mouth it will be as sweet as honey.
