...you are definitely missing something!

It is sooo much better than Logos' regular blog, and it has posts that deserve to be read by many more people. 

For starters, there are a couple of excellent pieces by Andrew Jones on 

As many of you know, Andrew's a medieval historian and he clearly knows his subject. If you thought the medieval Church didn't care about the Bible, be prepared to change your mind.Smile

There are also training posts of a much higher class than Mo's Monday blogs. Some of my favourites include:

Plus, there's nowhere near as many ad posts as on the regular blog. Yes

Great post, fgh, right on.

Leveraging a Lexicon for Early Church Studies, Part II, which shows a clever new way to use BDAG (new to me, at least).

New to me as well. This blog post is just the type of advanced Logos training that is great to see and can really open up new ways to use Logos for users already familiar with the program. Thanks to Isaiah Hoogendyk for the post and we hope to see more!

I've never been very tempted by Mo's courses, but after seeing Andrew's Catechism video I was a bit tempted by this. I'd certainly like to see the last part. Don't think I can defend the cost, though. But I might be in the market for a second hand copy later (it's DVD's so I presume they're sellable like any other used DVD). 

Also wondering if "Over seven hours of content taught using Logos 4" will be true when it ships? The hints seem to suggest that L4 will be outdated by that time. And Andrew needs to update his credentials.Stick out tongue

I wonder if he will consider mentioning titles that are not in the Catholic base-packages, such as: Blenkinsopp Ezekiel -commentary (Interpretation -series) ... it's a bit briefer than some recommended protestant commentaries which I think are too ellaborate and thereby both expensive and time-consuming.
And I would like this made available in Logos and mentioned: Re: Steve K. Ray -books catholic-convert.com

But I hope he will not use up the time for talking about the Raymond E. Brown -titles!
I also don't read Scott Hahn, he is vague on the topic of Purgatory by not saying that it's only in afterlife. See: http://www.christianforums.com/t7510849/#post58365543

fgh, trying to smile as much as Milford, but I think he and KP4J have me beat.  I'm smiling none-the-less.  thanks for the heads up!  I'm curious about the training videos, too, although I'd have to say that Mo does a fantastic job.  I've wondered if some people are not enamored with the more simple tips he puts out on the blog, because I have found his workshops to be extremely helpful.

I like Apples.  Especially Honeycrisp.

So I "ordered" the Catholic Practicum back in May and as of today the website says "Under Development."  Is there anywhere that an expected date of availability is published?

I don't think there is an expected delivery date, yet.  However, it's been in the works for a long time now.  I ordered back in January 2012, shortly after the launch of the original Catholic base packages.

Hopefully soon!  Smile
