  • Re: My yearly ASK - iWork Pages FOOTNOTES

    Not only Logos but other software acts in the same way. What would go in a footnote appears after the block of copied text, so I go to the Insert menu and add Footnote at the end of the block of copied text. I then move what would be in the footnote to the footnote space at the bottom of the page by highlighting the source information, then pressing

  • Re: New User Commentary Recommendations

    A workflow I often use to preview a commentary is to find the title of interest on the Best Commentaries website, click on the Amazon or Find at Google Books link, and then read the preview that is often available. Seeing a goodly number of pages is extremely useful. While on the Best Commentaries or Google Books page, check to see if the title is in

  • Re: Best one-volume commentary - to start study

    Looking at my order of priorities, I see that I place Eerdmans Commentary on the Bible and The New Bible Commentary at the top.

  • Re: OT: Is the IPA run by Internet Trolls?

    All measurement involves variability and uncertainty (think precision and accuracy issues in quantitative measurements). These issues become even more complex in qualitative measurement. IPA methods attempt to catalog and systematize the observed, not create the whole issue of language top down. It is inductive rather than deductive. As with all inductive

  • Re: OT: Is the IPA run by Internet Trolls?

    In the early 1960's I needed to take formal speech therapy provided by a credentialed speech therapist. As I listen to the IPA clips, I am transported back to those sessions in elementary school and the hours of weekly exercises. The first part of the exercise was to always isolate the phoneme to practice and listen to the therapist pronounce it slowly

  • Re: List Books arguing against the 'Social Gospel' ? Would you guys recommend me works?

    M.J. stated. " I do appreciate your taking the time to help me understand what you are looking for and why. You are simply out in an area using a vocabulary in which I am unable to be helpful." An excellent point was made. We often do not know the way in which an individual understands a term that we think is used in a single way only. Our life experiences

  • Re: Free Books of the Minth

    In agreement with Ken, I find Logos will provide what is needed to deal with the non translated Greek in the NIGTC set and others. I have my system (laptop) set up so that hovering over the word of interest will provide the basic information needed in the information tab. A click in the word 'freezes' the information tab to the selected word and provides

  • Re: Logos overstepping boundaries on promoting products

    I noticed the same behavior after a recent Logos 8 update. Unchecking the one box checked in the Explore section settings control of the Homepage just did not stick. I then tried checking only the "From Your Library Box" and then cycled the Homepage on and off. Seeing that only the chosen excerpts appeared, I then used the Explore settings control to

  • Re: Anchor Bible Dictionary

    There is a reason this item is found in most colleges, universities, Bible colleges, and seminaries of all types and persuasions. If such a diverse group of institutions have it in their holdings, it must be useful fora wide variety of folk. Check for AYB on WorldCat.org and you will see how widely it is found in libraries.

  • Re: Help

    As Mike and MJ describes, Logos 8 Basic is a definite option. And as mentioned, it only lacks pronunciation in your list of features desired. I have a second user space on my computer that has Logos 8 Basic and other programs that I use for demonstration purposes. In demonstrating the Logos 8 Basic system I have been pleased with the kind and quality

    Vincent, thank you for providing the link to "Spatial Analysis of New Testament Textual Emendations Utilizing Confusion Distances." That quick read made my morning. In the past I did a bit of work applying similar visualization tools to computational chemistry data sets— it brought back wonderful memories. If I were age 20 again, I could imagine

  • Re: August FBOTM - Biblical (+Systematic) Theology

    Paul, I have the current Berit Olam series and find it useful because of the approach taken. You will find that the Google Books website will give a good sample of pages that will present the approach of the book of interest. Another place I will always check is the Best Commentaries website, often first because of the links to Google Books and WorldCat

  • Re: The Canon of the Bible and the Apocrypha

    The contents of the Apocrypha have been treated in a variety of ways by the various Christian traditions. Many are surprised to find that it was included in the Geneva Bible and also in the KJV at the beginning. Whether or not the Apocrypha is essential very much depends on ones fundamental assumptions related to the Canon as influenced by their faith

  • Re: How do you write articles?

    I agree with JT. I use multiple software systems for my study needs and really only trust the usual office oriented packages for document crafting. I have experienced too much unhappiness when proprietary systems change formats and I now prefer formats that may be read by multiple products. There are many inexpensive or even no cost tools available

    Thomas, I agree! I always followed this kind of detail in the past versions and I really missed it in Logos 8. Yes, I am the kind of person that reads install logs or follows the console screen on systems the gives detail on exactly what is happening on the system. In the old days I used to watch the light panel display patterns when the IBM 1130 booted
