  • Re: Reformed theology, Logos, and the rest of us.

    Logos has the Jimmy Swaggart Bible. I have one volume in hardcover (ordered before I became a Logos -customer), 1 Cor, it covers my needs on 1 Cor. To my understanding, Pentecostals often use tools that are produced by other denominations - but that is based on what I've seen ½-educated people use in different Bible softwares. What genre do You want

  • Re: Catholic Reference Collection almost over the top!

    I can see that it's getting closer to the lower bid of $20. I'm temporarely ruined due to the sudden Hermeneia/Contintental Commentaries -offer last month (well and I have a very low income and high rent due to that I live in a modern house in a large city-area), so I wouldn't bid higher.[quote user="fgh"][quote user="Tom Rach"]It is really close![

  • Re: Too Many Prepubs shipping at the same time

    Me thinks that purhaps some Logos employees have been doing a bit of typing during their vacations! Another reason could be that Logos is avoiding that non-conscientious "competitors" catch up (those that steal). Logos has a lot going on, so we may have to get used to the situation more often. Those in seminaries are probably thrilled getting volumes

  • Re: Good news: new Bibles / new publisher

    I've been agonized when or if the REB would ever be released by Logos! I wonder if Logos has a list of all offered Bibles, divided by language? If not I suggest they make such a list and include Pre-pub items such as the English Bible Collection, and put a link on the storefront or perhaps include the list in a slide in the presentation! I would advice

  • Re: Upgrade to higher package version?

    I've been interested in English Bible versions for 8½ years. I would definately say that the versions that the Scholar's package add, are NOTHING to have. The most expensive purchases I've made were the OLL ($333), Catholic Foundations Library ($212), Hermeneia/Continental Commentaries ($600) and soon the ICC -volume on 2 Cor 1-7 by Thrall ($110).

    No, I'm not gonna do that because of 2-reasons: 1) I don't want to be forced to read it through with comprehension immediately 2) I've promised myself not to because I would be very tempted to keep it anyway regardelss if it has the content I want Better option to go to the biggest university library and have a look there.[quote user="Jack Caviness

    Mark Smith, who wrote in this thread on February 28. 2012 hasn't (yet?) answered the question I have. I'll add now another question regarding the same volumes: ICC Ep (by Best, E., 1998) and 2 Cor 1-7 (by Thrall, M, 1994): do they help structuring Scripture texts as to which parts of it consists of instructions and exhortations (mainly) for Church leaders

    It seems like if a computer is worn & doesn't have Word or LibreOffice installed, that the cheapest thing to do is to change the HDD to a new one with 7200 rpm!

    I'm thinking of getting the Ep and 2 Cor 1-7 ($110) -volumes (I have no commentaries on those books/parts-of-books). I'm probably buying them with Logos, and they are not very cheap as printed matter (printed would not be an option as I would be unable to look up things).
