  • Re: How to quickly search Vatican II in Verbum

    [quote user="Fr Devin Roza"] Would you like to be able to type "v2 to lg 56" in the command bar and have it open up LG 56? That's what I do! (v2 stands for Vatican II) Here is how you do it: ... [/quote] Thanks for the example. Are there many Logos users at the PIB?

  • Format BUG in NABRE Bible?

    A couple of times I have noticed the characters $1 in front of a bold paragraph heading while reading the NAB-RE Bible. Today in Joshua 19, which has numerous bold paragraph headings for different tribes, there are an awful lot of $1's in front of the names. For example: $1Simeon. 1 The second lot fell.... $1Zebulon. 10 The third lot fell... $1Issachar

    Sorry, that should have been: "The JPS Torah Commentary: [Genesis...Deuteronomy]" 5 volumes, and "The JPS Bible Commentary: [Esther...Jonah[" 4 volumes.

    [quote user="Hapax Legomena"] [quote user="Sleiman"] Wow... did they remove the JPS commentaries from the Capstone offering? [/quote] It sure looks like it from the full listing. The individual volume listings suggest that they are still included. Confusion? [/quote] While I do not know about details of "Capstone offering," they are certainly present

  • Re: Question for MJ or other Catholics

    [quote user="Tim"] I am very new convert to the Catholic Church, I am looking for materials that will be easy for me to grasp in the beginning and will then move on to "heavier" material. I guess what I was wondering is this a good place to start other than the commentary? What would you recommend? [/quote] In that case, the materials would probably

  • Re: Question for MJ or other Catholics

    Well, since you asked, and I qualify as "other Catholic," the product does not really appeal to me, personally. Perhaps I find it a bit too general, too introductory, somewhat dated. On the other hand, for someone with very little background in some of the topics, it could be useful. The NAB (1986) has now been replaced by the NAB-RE (2012); I prefer

  • Re: Help: Using Logos to learn Greek?

    Although you can do a lot through independent study, I would highly recommend that you have at least some classroom experience with an instructor and fellow students. And if you cannot find a New Testament Greek class, you might consider an introductory Classical Greek class (just be sure it is Attic, and not exclusively Homeric). Classical Attic Greek

  • Re: What modern languages to learn?

    "what (or which?) modern foreign language...has been the most influential theologically" really depends on which theology. For general biblical studies (this being Logos), you cannot beat German. German also works very well for studies of Lutheran theology, and the Reformation in general. But maybe I am biased because although English is my mother-tongue

  • Re: Learn Greek

    [quote user="David Taylor Jr"] Anyone have a suggestion on the easiest way to learn Greek? [/quote] I am not sure that "easiest way" and "learn Greek" belong in the same sentence. Anyway, I think there are a few "common ways" that generally include taking a class. I am assuming that you are asking about koine (NT) or at least classical Greek, and not

    [quote user="Stephen Kerr"] Can anyone shed some light on the UBS Old and New Testment Handbook Series that are part ot the Master and Capstone Base Packages? The comparison chart on the Verbum home page lists the Old Testament Series at 21 volumes, but when you look up that series in the Logos catalog it says is has 29 volumes. A check of the list

    [quote user="Bruce Dunning"] I can see that updates occur but how can you tell which ones are updated each time? [/quote] On the Logos homepage, the "Features" (little settings gear icon) contains, in the Content section, a check box (on or off) for "Updated Resources." If you check that you should get a list of updated resources on your homepage.

  • Re: Bible Sense recommendation for Rev.4:6 - "sea"

    Perhaps the use of "sea" in Rev 4:6 is asking too much of the BSL. After all, the phrase is ὡς θάλασσα ὑαλίνη ὁμοία κρυστάλλῳ. That is a whole lot more to contemplate than just a body of water, regardless of size. The Logos tool that I find most useful here is the Topic Guide for "Sea of Glass" which brings up Rev 4:6 and 15:2, and also Ezekiel 1:22

    For a younger man with a screen name of "Unix," there may be some "peer pressure" or just old-fashioned "desire" (not necessarily a bad thing; it is good to be passionate about our work).
