JimDean:
"An Introduction to Classical Evangelical Hermeneutics" (KREGEL) ed by Mal Couch.

 

Thanks Jim Dean for this suggestion.  Perhaps it would be good to put this as a second suggestion to have in Libronix if possible.  I think we all could benefit from books in Libronix that help us all to understand better the various theologies.  I know we have some already, but the more the better.  Especially at a time in history when the church at large is (for good or evil) attempting to be one again, these types of books could be very beneficial in Libronix.

Ted, thanks for your response.  I am in agreement with it.  If anyone thinks I have been uncivil in these exchanges, please forgive me.  But at the same token, please point out where I have been uncivil.

George, I have said previously, I very much appreciate many of your suggestions, comments and help.

At least in the newsgroups we tried to keep our discussions first of all civil and secondly, on topic. The topic is using Libronix. The topic is not whatever theological banjo someone prefers to play. I wish the Logos folks would step in and 'lay down the law' on this. It's getting ridiculous.

I seem to remember a number of rather testy exchanges on the newsgroups also. Other than that, I agree with your post wholeheartedly.

A horse is a horse of course of course,
And this one'll talk 'til his voice is hoarse.
You never heard of a talking horse?
Well, listen to this...

" I am Mr. George!"

It's unfortunate that you only got to be one part of a horse.

George, can we get a definition of what a kook is?

I can't resist butting in. In searching for uncommon creeds, I've found my own standard for kook-dom: someone who believes that the use of  text only, text in various colors and sizes of letters constitutes making a point.  I believe they have confused a printers' point with a logicians' point therfore allowing me to classifying them as "kooks"

 

Guess that makes me a "kook" too.   But then almost every map in Libronix must be made by kooks.....hmmm.  And lots of charts made by Wayne House &  Tyndale Publishing & Rose Publishing & so on. 

My early training in the graphic arts running offset presses makes me appreciate options more than the plain vanilla text reader.

Ted/Mark,

I also appreciate both of your comments regarding George and from the ng they are very accurate. It is best to take the high road where George is concerned for no one here will change George. Only God can change George's heart, so the best approach is to hold George up in prayer.

In Christ,

Ken

How about adding E.W. Bullinger's notes from The Companion Bible as a Logos book? 

It's out of copyright, so you all could ca$h in.

Can we just stop all this name-calling and one-upmanship. Somebody made a suggestion. Whether you or I think it is a good book or a bad book, is irrelevant to the fact that this is a suggestion.

Too many of these discussions are getting hi-jacked these days, to discuss everything from KJV onlyism, to Genesis 1 issues, to Dispensationalism.

At least in the newsgroups we tried to keep our discussions first of all civil and secondly, on topic. The topic is using Libronix. The topic is not whatever theological banjo someone prefers to play. I wish the Logos folks would step in and 'lay down the law' on this. It's getting ridiculous.

Please, let's lay down our verbal weapons, and our theological sensitivities and discuss the software.

Your humble and self-appointed moderator,

You're absolutely correct.  When I started this thread, all I was interested in was suggesting that the Notes and Appendixes of the Companion Bible by E.W. Bullinger be considered as a possible Logos resource.  I've used the printed work here for years and I find it to be a very valuable resource.

The first response that I got from anybody was a generalization that affixed the label of "kook" to anyone that used this work.  Then I was told that I'd be better off buying a non-existent book authored by the person calling me (and others) a "kook".   Sometimes I don't like to play doormat for people like this.

I use Bullinger's Figures of Speech Used in the Bible and his work Number in Scripture extensively in my studies - as do I use the collation of the Massorah by C.D. Ginsburg and Ginsburg's Massoretico-Critical Edition of the Hebrew Bible, the Septuagint, BHS, and like works.  I find Bullinger's scholarship to be very high in quality, but I do not happen to agree with him on every point.  The man was obviously blessed in his work though.

I'd still like to see the side column notes and appendixes from the Companion Bible offered as a Logos resource.  I'd also like to see Ginsburg's collation of the Massorah and Ginsburg's Massoretico-Critical Edition of the Hebrew Bible included as resources as well.  Those Massorah notes are VERY valuable, and I'm rather surprised how overlooked they are by today's scholars.  Both of these works are also out of copyright, so Logos should be able to produce them for perhaps less than some other works that are under copyright.

The Massorah would probably require a new font to be added to Logos though, as all of the various crowned letters that the masoretes used are included in that work - and I've never yet located a font that will display any of these.

I couldn't agree more.  I know of a guy who is a KJOnlyist and has appeared on various forums (including b-greek and b-hebrew though he knows neither) who is continually trying to promote the Textus Receptus who puts various paragraphs in differing colors.

george, (small "g")

Who might that be?

It is hard to imagine you are referring to anyone but me since I am one of the few who ever used the color options in the forums 

Your characterizations are false, & nothing more than personal attacks. (KJV, TR, knowledge of Greek, -NEVER posted re:Hebrew)

"There was a certain man who fell among thieves.....   "

Since all the old timers appear to tolerate your constant belittleing and borderline vulgarities, I don't expect them to rebuke you  now.

Lots of Priests & Levites in these forums, I'm just lookig for the Samaritans.

I find it rather curious that you take this as a personal attack on you.  This seems to be the problem with much of what results in "flame wars" on the forum -- everyone seems to think that they are the one's being criticized.  If you will trouble yourself to read what I wrote, you will in the first place I was making light of the whole matter by colorizing my reply contrary to my usual custom.  Secondly, you will note that I specifically referenced someone who appeared on various forums "including b-greek and b-hebrew."  To the best of my knowledge you have never been on either.  If I had meant you, I am not too shy to say so.  It's time for you to quit looking for a fight.  If you choose to reply, I will put you on notice beforehand that I have no intention to respond further.

Actually I think you'll find that a number of the old timers do regularly comment when they feel that George has posted something that could be perceived as offensive both here on the new forums and on the previous news group. Personally I respect George's opinion and his right to express it but I definitely wish he was gentler sometimes.

Now I assume this was meant as a global personal attack on and false characterisation of the old timers (can we actually be old timers on forums this new?) am I offended? No!

11The discretion of a man makes him slow to anger,

And his glory is to overlook a transgression

The New King James Version. 1982 (Pr 19:11). Nashville: Thomas Nelson

11     A man’s wisdom gives him patience; it is to his glory to overlook an offense

The Holy Bible : New International Version. 1996, c1984 (electronic ed.) (Pr 19:11). Grand Rapids: Zondervan..

Proverbs 23:9     Do not speak to a fool,

for he will scorn the wisdom of your words

Proverbs 20:3     It is to a man’s honor to avoid strife,

but every fool is quick to quarrel

Proverbs 12:16     A fool shows his annoyance at once,

but a prudent man overlooks an insult.

Proverbs 15:18     A hot-tempered man stirs up dissension,

but a patient man calms a quarrel.

Proverbs 16:32     Better a patient man than a warrior,

a man who controls his temper than one who takes a city.

Proverbs 14:29     A patient man has great understanding,

but a quick-tempered man displays folly.

1 Corinthians 13:4

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

1 Corinthians 13:5

5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

1 Corinthians 13:7

7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Ephesians 4:2

2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.

Ephesians 4:32

32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

Colossians 3:12

12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.

Colossians 3:13

13 Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.

Hebrews 12:14

14 Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.

1 Peter 2:23

23 When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly.

1 Peter 3:9

9 Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.

Romans 12:18,21

18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.

21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Sorry Graham,

I should not have used the global descriptive "all" when "many" or "the most vocal" would be more accurate. It is the deafening silence of the most verbose  which amazes me. When a child misbehaves in public there is usually some wise senior that speaks up. Here, in the middle of a Bible software forum, you would think there would be a Priest, Preacher or Levite who would give some correction. (Those who are aware of Brother Richard admonishing me in another post should appreciate this mentoring activity. I know I do.)

I don't know why this post on Bullinger's Companion Bible Notes should have degraded into this. I know everyone reading this is aware of the VAST scope of theological writings LOGOS has already published and has coming down the pipeline. There is no way an honest, thinking person can say everything is correct and complimentary. That does not give someone moral liberty to publicly brand someone a "kook" for reading or discussing divergent views.  And the moral laws of Christ are stricter than our so called freedom of speech.

Still, I feel George's post (regardless of Whom it was written) is nothing more than a personal attack denegrating someone bought with the Blood of Christ..

I resurrected an old project that I am not fully satisfied with, but some may find useful. It is on the files newsgroup. I leave it to some more industrious soul to put it here on the web forum. Though I visit here, I am a newsgroup die hard.

Speaking of Bullinger and kooks, this kook would like to see more Bullinger, like "The Witness to The Stars". 

I have not said anything about what I personally believe; though, I am sure the analytical will make assumptions (right or wrong). 

God bless you and keep you,

Hey George,

My everyday Bible is the ESV; is that ok with the "AV types"?

I like Bullinger and I believe his "Witness to the Stars" book is very interesting; is that starting something?

God bless you and keep you,
