Now, how long till they ship? Huh? How long?   Huh? Huh? Stick out tongue

Our goal is to be finished and ready to begin shipping around the beginning of September, if not sooner. I believe Stephen Smith will soon be looking for people who are able to review pre-release copies for academic journals or high-profile blogs though...

Thank you, Logos! I really appreciate this, Dan.

I wonder if you could link Lane lexicon (The Arabic collection) to BDB and HALOT. The references to Lane contain page numbers and it would be very beneficial (I think the total of references in BDB and HALOT is around 300). Even better would be linking all references of Arabic words to Lane (that would be around 4,000 references).

Whoa, that is a fast timeline compared to the other books I've had on pre-pub. I am impressed.

Timothy Ha:

Since you're ready to do that, I now believe it's a great resource, and will wait with great expectations.  Thank you for doing that :-)

Please nobody PM or DM me about it.  I will wait.

I was worried Thomas Black's understatement of "someone is going to be happy" would make many think they would not be in that group.

I won't tell you what it is but I recommend  Daniel Luke Gonzalez 's idea:  Set your home page to the Pre-Pub list sorted by "newest."

Thanks a lot.  Now I have pre-ordered all 7 sets :)

Thanks, Logos. Wrote to my Russian friends and blogged about the sets now.  Maybe you'll get some new customers from Russian-speaking people.

Awesome! and Thanks Logos!

 

Now, pardon my ignorance, but now that I've purchased it, and am looking forward to downloading it, what exactly is it, and how does it help with bible-study and/or sermon prep?

I guess the help is indirect, as with reading of any classics would do.

Now that my Logos library will double, I think I really have something to use until end of life and pass on to children :-)

Derek, I was pondering the same question and had to laugh at the thought of American Civil War analogies and references skyrocketing in preaching and sunday school lessons for the last quarter of the year

The most recent Logos Blog entry gives a short explanation on the possibilities of the Perseus collections

Derek,

I think your question is spot on... I also wonder...How will I use these new resources in my Bible study?  These new resources seem very esoteric, and don't think that I would typically have much use for them in my own study.  However, I have still placed these on Pre-Pub and I don't want to be ungrateful, but, I am contemplating on the amount of space required for these resources and weather it is worth downloading to my library?  I don't want to download 3000 plus resources that could slow down my critical resources I use on a regular basis.

I know there will be some healthy discussions on the forum, so I look forward to reading the pro's and con's of these resources.  But, regardless of my personal opinion on my usage, thank you Logos for making these available at no cost!

When logos considered the offer of making these resources available (especially the civil war sets) it should perhaps have considered that just because you can do something it does not mean that you should do that thing. Logos should be very protective of it's image and purpose, I am uncertain where it is going with this development.

Your comment is quite serious.

I hope Logos will answer soon.  I like the Civil War thing in the library, although I am not American.  But as a company for Bible study tools and Christian books, perhaps, Logos has some vision and direction for creating new resources.

May be somebody in the management can help us understand.

Thanks for big library anyway!
