Thanks for that suggestion.  Will check it out.

BTW, I am working on an outline archive for the Book of Acts.
Eventually it will have 60 outlines or more.  The following iis
what I have done so far, if you want to Compile it into a Personal
Book.  So far it compiles without any errors.  As I add chapter(s),
I will upload updates to this area of the Forums.

Hope you like it.  Here are the files:

0272.ACTS OF THE APOSTLES-Introduction.docx

0882.ACTS OF THE APOSTLES-Acts Chapter One.docx

4718.ACTS OF THE APOSTLES-Acts Chapter Two.docx

5023.ACTS OF THE APOSTLES-Acts Chapter Three.docx

6644.ACTS OF THE APOSTLES-Acts Chapter Four.docx

Just compile them into a personal Book in the order listed above.  This will eventually be not only an outline archive, but also a
commentary on the Acts of the Apostles.  Let me know how it works......

Here is an update to the Outlines for Acts.  Sorry, would have added more, but
since most of my books from WordSearch have successfully migrated to Logos
I have been spending too much time enjoying and learning more about Logos.
Miss my WordSearch, but love my Logos more and more each day!

2260.ACTS OF THE APOSTLES-Introduction.docx

7217.ACTS OF THE APOSTLES-Acts Chapter One.docx

6740.ACTS OF THE APOSTLES-Acts Chapter Two.docx

5850.ACTS OF THE APOSTLES-Acts Chapter Three.docx

8547.ACTS OF THE APOSTLES-Acts Chapter Four.docx

1854.ACTS OF THE APOSTLES-Acts Chapter Five.docx

7268.ACTS OF THE APOSTLES-Acts Chapter Six.docx

7762.ACTS OF THE APOSTLES-Acts Chapter Seven.docx

If you have already downloaded any of these, you only need to download what you don't have.
Compile them in the Personal Book Editor in the order as listed above.
They should compile as is, without any errors.

Calvin,

You said you're a Stone-Campbell guy like me.  How is the best way to locate
the resources you have put on here over the years?

Also, I have all of the Gospel Advocate NT Commentaries.  They are available
online at http://restorationslibrary.org

You will also find that all of these commentaries are available online in the Bible
Module for the e-Sword Program.  It is named "Old and New Testament Restoration Commentary."
It is named this because it now includes Complete and Extensive Commentary on 2nd Kings
thru the Book of Revelation.  I have worked on it since September 2019 and have posted it 
on the website at http://biblesupport.com    Let me know if you want the .RTF source code, which
was initially created in WORD.  Will be glad to share it with you.  Shouldn't be hard to convert to
.docx format for use with Logos.  Right now the module(s) comprise about 100 MB in size.  There
are Four(4) files:  3 for the Old Testament, and 1 for the New Testament.  There are thousands of
Bible Study Questions, plus the entire Gospel Advocate Commentaries are located withing the
New Testament Module.

Later....

Mark

Thank for this link to the Restoration Library, Mark. At one time several of us were trying to get the College Press Textbook Series into Logos. It was put into "community pricing," however, it didn't fair too well. I have that complete set in paper and in e-Sword. I was able to get the Gospel Advocate in WS several years ago and it has been one of my favorite sets.

Thank you for the files that you've already provided and I'm looking forward to "many" more RM resources in the future. :)

Mark-

There are a couple of ways: 

1. Search for my name in the search bar.  Everything I have put up, questions and all will come up. Most of my RM materials are 2017 or before.  I teach world religions at a local university and in recent years I have put up quite a few eastern religion resources. 

2. Search by author "Alexander Campbell"  "Barton W. Stone" "Moses Lard" "David Lipscomb", "R.H. Boll", "Leo Boles", etc..  That will bring up quite a few. There are too many other RM authors that I've put on here to either enumerate  or for me to remember, but they're there. You could also try "Millennial Harbinger" but I'm not sure that that will bring many hits.  I have converted hundreds of RM resources, but most of the more obscure or very brief ones I have not put up here because while we are definitely present here in the forums, RM pastors and scholars are a distinct minority. 

May I have your email address?  I would like to correspond with you about some of the source documents you mentioned, but until either of us put them up as .docx files, I presume they are of no/little interest to the rest of the list. 

Mine is cal {dot} habig [at] gmail [dot] com.  If you just drop me a direct message there with your email, I can ask my spe4cific questions. 

I have served with the independent Christian Churches for 35+ years.  In recent days with the disintegration/demise of most of the institutions that held these churches together (North American Christian Convention, Christian Standard, the continuing closure of preacher training schools, [Cincinnati Christian College and Seminary among the most prominent] etc.) I have been reading more and more churches of Christ materials,,, although mostly older stuff.

Thanks.

I see you can also click "Forum Activity" next to my name and that will bring them up. 

All the best,

Mark-

In rereading your posts I saw something I missed last time.  We may not put up anything that is still under copyright without the author's express permission.  i have quite a few of Mark Copelands outlines as well for my personal use, but  since they are copyrighted we may not put them up here without Bro. Copelands express consent.  When I have tried to get consent from contemporary writers, sometimes they give it and sometimes they don't.  I've never contacted Bro. Copeland about putting his stuff here

Well, I see the Paper Clip and am giving it a try.  so here goes....

4431.Ruth Chapter One.docx

4745.Ruth Chapter Two.docx

0143.Ruth Chapter Three.docx

0245.Ruth Chapter Four.docx

There you are NB.Mick.  The four lines(links) above are the four files in my little Personal Book.

Now that you have figured out how to add files to a post. So that this content is easy to find I suggest you create a new post in this thread titled something like "Mark John's notes on the book of Ruth" because a search for "Ruth" is unlikely to find this post.

You're welcome.  My next project will be to make the Abilene  Christian  College Lectureships available for the years 1930 thru 1992.

I'm surprise ACC (ACU) didn't control their lectureships. FC is on Logos.

It is my understanding that those lectureships before 1993 are no longer under copyright just the ones after 1992. I do know that most of those let your ships are available online at Bible support. Com. However they are in a format for e-Sword Bible program

Mark-

I believe it is more complex than that.

While copyright law is very complex (and I am not an attorney and am not giving legal advice) my thumbnail sketch of copyright law is that..

  • All works published before 1924 are in the public domain.
  • All works published since 1978 are copyrighted for the lifetime of the author plus 70 years. For works (like the lectureships) that are compilations, the copyright lasts for seventy years after the death of the longest surviving contributor
  • For works published between 1924-1978 they may or may not be copyrighted depending on whether the copyright was renewed when it expired. That information has to be searched out from the US Copyright Office, however, there are databases online where one can go and search for that information.

If someone (esp. someone from Logos) knows additional or contramanding information, I would welcome a response.

I was recently given the college press textbook commentaries in print (1977 reprint). I haven't done much with them, I honestly don't know if its the whole set though it should be pretty close if its not. Its a LOT of titles... But if someone knows someone in or passing through central florida that would be blessed by them... let me know :)

Mark-

Since you have mentioned the Restoration Library, a few years ago I had a conversation with the guy behind the Restoration Library because they have lots of works on there since 1923.  He confirmed what I have said above and said re: the works they have online either he has explicit permission from the author or publisher or he has researched it and found that the copyright was not renewed,  As an example, I am attaching a screenshot of Don Earl Boatman's work on "Helps from Hebrews".  On the copyright status he has ""Under Copyright, Used With Permission". That permission is extended to the person who puts that website together,,.NOT for me to go and download that resource and make a Logos docx out of it and share it. I can download it and make a Logos doc for my own use, but I can't share it.  (I do that all the time for my own use).

Was this compiled as a monograph or Bible Commentary? I love these resources. I am always on the lookout for good restoration resources in logos, so thanks for sharing these. Carla

Cal,

Thanks for your information and responses.

I have already contacted Mark Copeland concerning this matter, via email with my request to
use his outlines to create Personal Book(s) for LOGOS 8.  My request included the stipulation
that the Outline for each Chapter (say in ACTS) would have a Copyright Notice, plus a Link that
would take any user direclty to his website at  http://executableoutlines.com

Until I hear from brother Copeland I do not intend to upload future Books (Old or New Testament)
until I hear back from him.  In anticipation of his approval, I will continue my work on the Book of
Acts, but will hold off on any updates to LOGOS until I hear from him.  Besides, I need to go back
and redo the first 12 Chapters of ACTS because I need to "beef up" the structure of the Outlines 
that apprears in the "Sidebar" in the LOGOS program.  That way, it will be more like some of the 
other Commericially available Books in apppearance.

I have already receive approval to use use outlines in my local congregation, for handouts and
for use on Overhead Projectors, etc.  So, keeping my fingers crossed, and a prayer in my heart
concerning this matter.  If brother Copeland grants his approval of my request, I will post such on
this forum so no one should question the legality.  Until then, I hope to hear back from himi this 
weekend on this matter.

In Him,

Mark Johns

Cal,

I think that in inserting a (c)Copyright Notice in each Chapter would
normally require two(2) lines of text, but if I insert a link(hyperlink) embedded
in the Copyright Notice, it would only require one small line of text...

Dear cshover

Being a newbie at LOGOS, I believe it was compiled as a monograph.

But I'm not sure yet what the difference is between a monograph and a Commentary.

Perhaps you could explain that one.  I have spent years creating modules for e-Sword
Bible program.  The editor in e-Sword compiles .RTF files which I create in WORD.

Anyway, what is the difference in the two?  In e-Sword Bible Commentaries have three
areas:  Book Notes, Chapter Notes and Verse (or Verse-by-Verse) Notes.  Reference
Books are more like monograph Books.  However, I have only begun to compile a book
or two thus far and am not sure:  What would be the special requirements for compiling
as a Bible Commentary?  I haven't come across that ino yet and could use your help
unstanding what the advantages, etc.  are in either one....  Thanks

Mark
