  • Re: Just a thought, but controversial I am sure.

    I don't normally respond on these types of threads, but I feel compelled. I'm really surprised that the responses you got made you feel unwelcome in the forum. I don't think anyone said anything at all that was derogatory toward you, or toward what you brought up. One person talked about why SHE does it, which I would think keeps perfectly with what

  • Re: When is Google better than Logos?

    Great point, and I think a common type of mistake. However, Google has gotten so good, I suspect if one might be able to get to some type of answer by googling something like, "approximate weight of domesticated sheep in the Ancient Near East in approximately 1500 BC." Only slightly kidding. I think it's quite possible you could get something of an

  • Re: When is Google better than Logos?

    I seem to be late to the discussion, but thought I'd throw in. Honestly, I don't use Logos to search for much of anything anymore. With Logos I study passages of Scripture with it, which includes using original language, English translations, lexicons, etc. I look things up within a resource (commentary passage, encyclopedia listing, etc) and occasionally

  • Re: Filing Illustrations as a preacher

    Brad's link reminded me about the very best (easiest) part of illustrations using Evernote. I now do most of my reading on my Kindle. In the past it wasn't my favorite way to read, I still prefer reading actual books, but the ease of transferring information this way makes it too easy and valuable to not use. On my Kindle, I highlight liberally, anything

  • Re: Filing Illustrations as a preacher

    Filing and then finding illustrations and sermons are the main reason I still use Evernote. Illustrations: I type them in, title them something relevant, and tag them with as many labels as it could possibly illustrate (Belief, anger, dedication, clumsy, whatever), and with the passage reference. When I want an illustration, I can search the tags, or

  • Re: Lemma vs Root

    This was a GREAT answer, using Logos to get it done. My answer would have been far more verbose, and perhaps much less clear...

  • Re: Prioritizing Commentary series

    Thank you, Mark. I just figured it out. The resources didn't automatically download to the computer. I didn't realize it, because about 300 MB of stuff DID download, so I assumed that the books were there. Once I downloaded them, they prioritized quickly and correctly. Should have caught that much quicker - the old brain isn't what it used to be. Thanks

  • Prioritizing Commentary series

    I bought a bunch of books from the NAC series through the "Top Commentaries" sale. Today I was trying to prioritize them as a series, and it wouldn't work. I could drag individual resources into the "Prefer These Resources," and only that resource would be prioritized there. I would right click on a resource, choose "Prioritize this series," and the

  • Re: Issues with Fuzzy Bible Search

    Sean, I've been recommending on these forums that people forget about Logos and use Google to search for Bible verses for years. The problem is, in Logos, you have to know what type of search you want to do (like a "fuzzy" search) and different ways to insert the search perimeters, etc. If I'm using my Logos library to search a variety of different

  • Re: Kudos for something I haven't appreciated in the past

    Interesting. Download and indexing went faster than I thought it would, also. As far as using the program, I know others have said it for a long time, but I'm finding L8 to be faster in everything, from opening to use. My big hope is that it doesn't develop problems when it has to be disconnected from the internet for periods of time.

  • Kudos for something I haven't appreciated in the past

    While setting up Logos 8, I have noticed that some of the things I want it to do are already set. I began to suspect that Logos had saved my my previous preferences online. Sure enough, when I went to set up my preferences, my old preferences were all right there, already set. Which was nice, as it would have taken some time to remember and reconfigure

  • Opening a Bible, not interlinear

    Okay, I suspect I'll be back here a few times in the next few days, asking what will probably be some pretty basic questions. I replaced my computer, so I'm now on Logos 8, and working on setting it up for use. Too many things I should be able to figure out easily, that my brain won't grab a clue with... So, the simplest of questions: I haven't been

  • Re: Need Help With Transferring Paper Notes to Logos

    I understand that the Logos Notes function is getting much better. That said, for me personally, I'd recommend either Evernote or OneNote. Evernote is good, and as others have said, you can scan/take phone pictures of them, and Evernote will store the images, and the text in the pictures will be completely searchable. However, I believe that with OneNote

  • Re: Favourite A. W. Tozer Books

    Interesting. I assumed that copyright had expired, since there are so many copies of Tozer's works published by different people.

    [quote user="Bruce Dunning"]It is disappointing but sometimes the publisher restrictions make it difficult if not impossible. Perhaps someday it will be in Logos.[/quote] I don't think that would be the issue any more. Tozer's been gone for a long time, and I think several publishers are printing his main works now. His stuff may well be public domain

  • Re: How to find if its true

    Something about looking back 2000 years makes it easy to forget that then, like today, people used words in slightly different ways.

  • Re: How to find if its true

    [quote user="MJ. Smith"]Remember that the grammar is descriptive i.e. it is a description of what grammarians see as the use in the language. That doesn't mean that an individual author always exhibits that use. The grammarians offer positive evidence not a declaration on its "truth".[/quote] What an absolutely great reminder.

  • Re: Please Explain the Negative

    I don't think it is that the commentaries explain the passages you mention as negatives, when they really are positive. I think that the actual passages mean them in the negative way. And, I would submit that the passages are often written that way, not to be more emphatic, but to be more precise. Sometimes stating a negative means something different
