  • 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. Shalom, Joseph

  • 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

  • Re: What features/datasets did I just get?

    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

    In relation to the value of the Mike Heiser Special Edition—this was the first engine I have purchased since Libronix. Yes, I have added books, but I waited for the no-cost version of the L5 through L7 engine when I could not longer activate books on Libby. This package pushed the correct buttons on my books wanted list (a bunch of original language

    Whyndell, USB connected 3.5" floppy disk drives are pretty easily obtained in the $10-$20 range. They are actually useful for reading those old files. Perhaps you know someone who has one of these USB Floppy Disk Drives. Me, I'm looking for the USB based drive that can read 5.25" and 8" floppies. Yes, I know—it's time to get rid of all that old

  • Re: Is the Ancient Christian Commmentary (ACCS) worth $170?

    By studying the early church fathers, one discovers that certain ideas arise, are debated, refuted, defended, rejected, suppressed, and reappear for the process to repeat. There really is nothing new under the sun, and we may actually learn from bad behavior of the past. Being humans, (said in that sneering Ferengi accent), we like to think that we
