Anyone ever heard of the Hebrew-Greek KEY WORD STUDY BIBLE by AMG Publishers

SUGGESTION:  Please consider acquiring rights to produce this resource digitally and make it available in Logos Bible Software.

This looks like a pretty neat study bible.  What I like about it is that it emphasizes and highlights the most important keywords throughout the scripture - from Genesis to Revelation.

Here's what AMG says about it on their website:

There are times when a Greek or Hebrew word has a distinct meaning that seriously affects the proper interpretation of Scripture. Unless you are familiar with these languages, you will not be able to determine what word in the original text was used or the differences between these words - until now.

The Hebrew-Greek Key Word Study Bible identifies the key words of the original languages and presents clear, precise explanations of their meaning and usage. Those who love God's Word will treasure this Bible, for it contains a whole library of biblical helps within its covers.

SUGGESTION:  Please consider acquiring rights to produce this resource digitally and make it available in Logos Bible Software.

LOGOS' version is found in this bundle: 

The bundle could be improved by updating to one of the more modern translations (ESV, NASB, NIV, or NKJV). Most of the functionality can be had without a newer translation; but if one is familiar with a specific translation, it would be helpful to have this tool keyed to that translation

Yes, I have both of those resources already - in both my Logos and WORDsearch Libraries.  But this is something different. 

It's a study Bible that identifies, for the reader, the main Key Words right in the text of the scripture. 

I think this would be awesome in Logos

Here is a link to a video from AMG:

I have this in my Logos Library. I do not recall when I purchased it or how as I have been using Logos a long time.

With all the tools and features now available in Logos, many of the features of this resource seem out dated. For example everything is in footnotes rather than tags, which makes it difficult to search for anything other than words and strongs. The Reverse Interlinears now provide morphology more detailed than the AMG. In the AMG Study Bible they are shown as footnotes. One feature I really like is that is shows whether nouns have the definite article or anarthrous. Again, this can be done with a reverse interlinear and visual filters.

The Key commentary is also a footnote and pop up. Here is the commentary on John 1.1:

Hope this helps.

I own a couple different hardback copies of the HGKSB, including a modern translation (NIV). I bought them both in the 80s or early 90s. I loved the features they provided.

However, John is right. These features are redundant in Logos, and much less detailed than some of the Logos features that serve the same purpose. While you could rightly argue that a hardback copy of the Bible with these features beats carrying a laptop to church, I don't see any way you can rightly argue that the HGKSB in Logos is a better tool than many of the built-in features of the software, including the aforementioned resources from AMG (which I also own and still use on occasion due to familiarity and respect for Spiros' Z's scholarship). Since the actual study notes from the HGKSB are included in the AMG resource package, I can't see any reason to add anything else to it. (And as I said, I'm a *big* fan of the HGKSB.)

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Faithlife Corp. owes the MVPs free resources for life.

Hello Stein,  

I personally have issues with  key word explanatory notes section. I have 3 of these bibles. I have used them much for the past year. So you know I do very much like this bible lay out. I stay in the scriptures. I do use the Hebrew / Greek to verify that I am understanding the word correctly. 

The thing is, the few times I looked at the Key Word Explanatory Notes I realized the Notes are bent to / toward a certain view of the scriptures. The Holy Spirit is to guide us into ALL truth. I trust the Spirit of God to reveal to me what the meaning of His word is.

Yes...thank you and why I have been thinking in this regard what I need that would be helpful in this direction. I was looking at the Key Study bible and also the Word Study Dictionary I believe both by AMG. I have the Key Study in NASB that was given to me but like KJV.

I have two HGKSBs.  One in KJV and one in ESV.  I really like the features, and the dictionary in the back.  However, I think that the various lexicons and dictionaries and the reverse interlinear feature in Logos makes the Key Study Bible pretty unnecessary in software.  I can right-click any word in a reverse interlinear translation and get the Hebrew or Greek, and look it up in any of my lexicons that I choose.  The notes of the Key Study Bible are only so-so.  Certainly not something I would ever refer to in Logos.

So I dunno.  As a fan of the printed version, I am not clamoring for it in Logos.
