I guess I slept thru 2015 somehow. The cover of the book bounces off of 'post-Christian'.

I never really signed on to post-modern ... that seemed to be ego-istic ... modern is modern.  Only the end of the end time could be post-modern.

So, now, post-Christian. They have a list of characteristics and you have to get 9 or more to be post-Christian. My browser refused the quiz ... probably good thing.

I was surprised Arizona was in the running ... we have state-supported Christian universities. Turns out it was 'Tucson'.  Might have known .... which begs the question about the quiz, if you know Tucson (avoiding a theological cataclysm here).

Anyway Logos selling it for $2?

Not a sale for Canadians this is the first time I have ever been directed to the Canadian kindle store without a similar pricing I know the Canadian dollar is down but $1.99 us is not $14.57 can. Had it been a similar price I might have considered it.Thanks for pointing it out.

I am REALLY tempted to get it, but I'm not. A book like this has little value in Kindle and would be too difficult to turn into a meaningful PB.

The normal Kindle price in the U.S. is just shy of $15.

It's unrelated but you guys do know that the ISBE is only $4.99 on kindle. It's the new and updated one (not the 1919 or whatever version). Then you can set it as your dictionary and whenever you highlight a word while reading it will magically look up the word in the ISBE and give it in a pop-up window. Crazy.

what do you consider to be meaningful? As long as the largetext search works, its useful to me (For those who don't know, the base text must be 12 or less and the large text (headings etc.) must be 14 minimum for this to work.). Its very easy to do with the "select all text with similar formatting" function in Word.

Personally, I would consider this kind of work to be meaningless without scripture links

If you are referring to hyperlinks that Logos recognizes as Bible references, that provoke popups of the passage when the book is built, then yes it happens automatically as long as the reference is in the format that the system recognizes.

It only needs further tagging if you want milestone tagging, which this particular resource would not need (its not a commentary) or if the verse is mentioned without the chapter and book name (which is rare in a book like this, though there can be some instances).

As James mentioned, many/most scripture links are automatically created when you build a personal book. The more explicit the reference, the higher the percentage.

Did you get this resource? If so, did a TOC get auto created?

The ToC is pretty basic, it only has The Alphabet.

From the copyright page of the book

"This book was adapted from The Baker Encyclopedia of Christian Apologetics, published in 1999 by Baker Academic."

The original is available here: https://www.logos.com/product/26313/baker-encyclopedia-of-christian-apologetics

I am not sure what the differences are between those two.

That's definitely the Public Domain version, the publication date refers to the Kindle version. That publisher has a lot of Christian public domain books he is selling on Kindle.

Good news (for me) - I already own The Baker Encyclopedia of Christian Apologetics so I've just  potentially saved myself $1.99 . It's actually included on a Geisler Apologetics Library CD which I bought as a Libronix CD-ROM a while back. According to the CD case it needs a minimum of Windows 98 to run which shows how old it is!

Interesting, I didn't notice that.

Here's a comparison: some of it is word-for-word, but the A-Z resource is more concise in certain articles, it completely cuts out certain paragraphs, and then is word-for-word again

You can migrate your Kindle account back and forth between amazon.com and amazon.ca, and save a few bucks.
