Could Logos eventually translate the RCL into Chinese?

I could really use it when speaking to the pastor and elders in my wife's village in Xishuangbanna. Thanks.

Hi, Scott,

Thank you for your request.  May I know what is RCL?  Thanks.

Best regards,

Philip

I think Scott referred to this: https://www.logos.com/product/8748/revised-common-lectionary, the lectionary that is used by some denominations.

Hi, NB,

Thank you for letting us know.  Currently if the user owns a Chinese Bible, the Bible texts itself in the RCL will display Chinese Bible if user choose preferred Bible as Chinese Bible.  We only need to translate common titles from English into Chinese.  We will take a look.  Thank you, Scott, for your suggestion and patience.

Best regards,

Philip

Sorry, I was texting while walking at a mall.

I know that with hot links you can open any Bible, click on the RCL link and it will open the Bible of your choice. I guess I was thinking if the locals could just see it with the Chinese book names that would make a bigger impression on them. Or I could copy say all the Advent readings - the listing in the RCL - print them out and hand them a piece of paper which they could look up at their leisure without them having to come to my office to my computer. It's not a deal breaker if it didn't exist, but it would help, that's all.

They don't really have a good system for selecting text, they just do half a chapter a week, and don't really understand the text they are expo siting. But in a Lectionary, the OT text is tied to the Gospel (in the complementary readings) and it will really make a difference I think in their sermon preparation, to see the connection of thone two passages. Also what season in the Church Year the texts read fall, that helps guide the speaker/preacher.
