  • Re: Precision in the treatment of deuterocanonical/apocrypha/non-canonical texts

    I have read through the thread with some interest as an "outsider" to many of these academic oriented discussions. As a casual user what strikes me is that when doing bible study with Logos the impression that is given with all of its charts, rivers, and canned responses is that results are "objective" This impression gives me the sense that I have

  • Re: The future of Logos and Faithlife: Help us make the right decisions!

    To be honest this software is so expensive, cumbersome, troublesome, and difficult to use that I keep it for one reason....because I have had it. I use other less expensive, easier to use, and closer to my theological training for exegesis in my counseling ministry. Nor would I recommend this mess to another christian, a local church congregation, or

  • Re: Logos Now and Faithlife Connect: The Why

    On the positive side I can appreciate the feedback and "justification" for switching from one product line to another...related to profitability. I can also appreciate ownership expressing their editorial view on how the product will change for the better in the future. Yet I recall numerous times that FL and its products is a business and is in the

  • Re: Faithlife! Is Logos Now Really going to be discontinued?

    I occasionally meander through some of these threads for the ever evolving drama that is as FaithLife Turns. For me the only question remains about the changing, but obscure, product line from FL is why keep pumping money into this beast?

    Welcome to a monopoly producer in a free market...its all about the cash.

  • Re: No NEW Journals - why not?

    Fairly simple determination: Galaxie-new products regularly available. FL-uncertain, unknown, unknowable. Free market forces at play-monopolies get to set distribution, price, availability, and content without regard to customer requests or needs.

  • Re: How do you use Logos? How can we improve it?

    For me I don't need more features, more useless book collections (especially public domain), or doing exegesis from a few limited perspectives. What I would like is a streamlined interface that allows me to do exegesis like I was trained. What I would like is book collections geared to more contemporary theological streams of thought....liberation or

  • Re: My Big Concern about Logos future for ownership model

    For what it is worth I have invested in a Logos Library since my seminary days...which was a while back. I have very limited monetary resources and plan to continue that practice due to the changing nature of e-books as a general matter. It also disturbs me, along with my confidence in FL, to see the company continually (imo) trying to stretch itself

  • Re: Bob: From King To Customer - The end of Faithlife as we knew it?

    I don't know if FL is run by Christians or not. I don't know if FL is dedicated to their customers or not. I don't know if FL is about helping me grow as a person of faith with their software. What I do know is that every other piece of Bible software that I have bought over the years have gone out of business or their software doesn't function as well

  • Re: Logos Now: Why do you have it, or why are you passing on it?

    Personally I have no desire to rent more software than is necessary for my needs. In terms of Logos my fear is that the subscription base will ultimately eliminate my site license for what I have purchased then they will require ever higher fees for whatever it is Logos will use to replace it.

  • Re: Word vs WordPerfect for Larger Academic Papers

    I should have used WordPerfect for my doctoral project but didn't. Almost didn't complete the document (and degree) on time because of formatting difficulties with Word. My advise? Stay with WordPerfect for completion of documents in a timely manner.

  • Re: Faithlife Now Selling Books that Mock God and Promote Atheism

    Debates like this thread is a good reason that Faithlife shouldn't declare itself a "christian" e-publisher...imo. Academic debate from a classic liberal arts perspective is about opening a well educated person to the possibilities other than their own cultural preferences. If what is published is left up for debate nothing would be sold e-book style

    [quote user="PL"] And companies don't typically lay off 15% of its staff unless there's some kind of trouble or concern, especially for a small, tight-knit company like FL.

  • Re: Personnel changes at Faithlife

    I am somewhat curious as to why this particular thread has such staying power. People get laid off all the time in businesses across America. People face tragedy and difficulties because of such layoffs. FL is just another business that has laid people off due to whatever circumstances being put out by the management team on these forums. A sad situation

  • Re: Again: Trapped feeling

    Of course we shouldn't express our unhappiness with an expense, overly complicated, public domain dominated library droid to others... Each of us decided to spend the amount of money that was dropped into our packages. I too started gathering resources in seminary at better discounts with few upgrades over the years. I too find that few of the resources

  • Re: Undecided if Logos is right for me...

    Logos is, in fact, the Cadillac of Bible oriented software. However, it is more of a library than Bible Software proper due to its open ended manner in which it needs to have huge amounts of resources to run this as money out of your pocket. For me I bought version 3 in Seminary and never have purchased anything more than a minor upgrade

  • Re: Do you want every ebook in the world in Logos?

    How does one maintain their "integrity" and "vision" related to Christian faith issues when the business is to sell as many books as possible on every subject imaginable? That is sort of like telling Pepsi their soft drink products are so much better because they also sell bottled water...what an Orwellian view of marketing imo.
