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

    Every end user application...which we used (lol) to call "programs", long before they were "apps" is a child of its time. I remember getting my hands on Ami Pro, a beautiful "easy" graphical word processor for windows 3.1. 7 floppies to install. 300 pages of manual. Logos is old enough that it began in that age where full-service computer programs required

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

    The term can be used several ways. I think Piper intended it as a synonym for mercenary, i.e. doing it only for money or recognition. The nuance I have in mind is professional vs. dilettante, or amateur, if you prefer. Exegesis is not something preachers do instead something else. Yes it is a vocation, a passion, a daily divine imperative. I want to

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

    This may sound more snarky than I wish... Professionals use professional tools. Critical commentaries require Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic & comprehension of critical methodologies. We need critical commentaries. I would not recommend them to people for personal devotions. Conversely Matthew Henry can be a useful aid for devotional reading. It is not

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

    Forgive me for not replying to each and every reply so far in this thread. I have had this item on my things list for a couple of weeks but I wanted to give it more than a brief look. I use Logos, along with other tools. My church uses an older "presentation" program. By older I mean the buy/own mode. Old also means in need of upgrade. We also use a

  • What would make the Word Study Guide Golden.

    The Word Study guide is one of the most useful tools in Logos. It pulls together a lot of information allowing a quick triage of time needed to fully understand the term studied. One thing would make it even better. In the Lemma section it lists lexical tools and a quick summary of the glosses for the term in question. If there was an option to include

  • Re: Bait and Hook: Is Logos Now an example of the future of Proclaim?

    1. Responding 1.1 At first I did not know which thread to jump in. It seems that virtually everyone who has a Logos Now subscription has been alienated. Hopefully Logos (The company and program I and most of us signed up with) is looking and listening. 1.2 My wife and I talked in the car this afternoon. Last after I got the Email my first words were

  • Re: Logos 8 Wishlist

    1. In guides....when a hyperlink appears include the option to include the section, definition or article in-line. This would allow a single seamless research document. As things stand when you hit a link in the passage or exegetical guide you open the resources, from which you presumably cut/paste notes into the notes section of the guide....why not

  • Wishing for...

    Interactive Analysis and Visualization (graphing) for any search. The analysis module is good, but the focus is too narrow (You can't turn the tool loose on your own search). The analysis tab in search is good...but you can't really graph it or even print it. I produced a highly nested analysis of key vocabulary in John... When I exported it to Excel

  • Bible Sense Lexicon

    Good afternoon all, Is there some explanation somewhere for how the Bible-Sense Lexicon works? How are relationships conceived or constructed? What principles? That kind of thing. Sense it is a tool rather than a book there is no table of contents which, presumably is where one would find the introductory and usage material. Thanks all.

  • Re: Favorite Logos Resource and why?

    BBDAG and any reference book!! It can be hard to read large amount of text on a computer screen. BUT reference books?!? Heavens to Mergatroid! Reference books are all about speed, accuracy and integration. Logos is at it's very best pulling together reference materials and BDAG is the current pinnacle of the art in biblical studies. Bob

  • Re: Does Logos Master you or are you Master of Logos?

    Way back before Logos, when all I had was a KayPro 2 to do word processing promised vowed to never use a computer to perform a task that I could not perform by hand. In today's idiom: don't "do" digitally what you can't do with analog. Now, there are tasks I can do with analog tools, that would be impractical to do every week-there is just not enough

  • Re: A Christmas wish....

    Alan, That certainly gets the job done, that is essentially what I do know except I go directly to an external note taking program. It would be much more clean if the program did this internally. It already gathers collapsible headers and compiles links beneath them. If those links were also collapsible headers then the resource could just open where

  • A Christmas wish....

    Don't know if this a good spot for feature request. But here it goes. I'm smoothing out my Christmas eve message and using sermon starter, topic guide, and Word stud guide to drill down on a single term. When you click on a link it opens the resource in another tile (or flips to the right page if you have the resource open) My wish is the ability to

  • First, preliminary impressions.

    After my concerns regarding pricing I thought it important to share my first impressions about L5 after going with the minimal cross grade. Everything seems faster and more stable. Once all the downloading and indexing and waiting, things just seem to flow very good. I have not done much to really crunch things on either the PC or OS X side, but my
