  • Re: Happy or Blessed - which do you prefer?

    We always have to remember that words communicate not based on their dictionary definitions, but their popular perceptions. Language is fluid and ultimately democratic. A lot of people hate that, and there is plenty of evidence that Orwell was right and language is slowly melting down--look at the sad fate of the word "awesome"--but in the end, common

  • Re: Gospel Harmonies and Parallels

    fgh, I would have to agree with George that questions of order, such as Matthew being placed before Mark, are not inspired in the way that the Word itself is inspired, any more than verse and chapter divisions are inspired. These are things that men have added. It makes sense to me to work outward from Mark, knowing that the gospel narratives are often

  • Re: Gospel Harmonies and Parallels

    Mick, can't thank you enough. I think you've just about convinced me. This is exactly what I was looking for. I had been leaning toward the Robertson myself. Though it would seem there are plenty of these already, it would be kind of nice to have one with just refs and no texts. In paper books, of course you need the full text, but in Logos, with the

    Very helpful, Jerry. I will try that!

    Thank you, Thomas. Your last sentence is something I suspected, and am glad to hear your confirmation.

  • Gospel Harmonies and Parallels

    I have at least seven of these. I think I actually bought Throckmorton's parallel gospels because I had heard good things about it. Does anyone have opinions about the best, most reliable and helpful volumes in this genre? I realize that about 95 percent of them will be the same across the board. I'm thinking of working closely with one in the future

  • Re: OT: David Wilkerson has died in a car accident in East Texas

    When i was a teenager, my dad accepted a request to be a boys' Sunday school teacher. He went to a Baptist Book Store and bought a bunch of books that might help him, since he knew nothing about the Bible. I had always enjoyed Sunday school but was quickly reaching an age of questioning, when one's faith must become one's own, or be left behind with

  • Re: Nook or Kindle

    One other point: It's worth looking at how the experts review things. I don't think I've seen Nook best Kindle in a review yet. Consumer Reports continues to rate Kindle higher . Of course, the linked review is a year old. Kindle 3 was a vast improvement, but Nook has definitely bettered itself, too. Color was the way to go because it doesn't have to

  • Re: Nook or Kindle

    People can make legitimate arguments for each. eInk, which Kindle uses, is by far the superior choice for serious readers who might read 70-100 pages of a book before sleeping at night. Studies show that standard backlit screens, such as Ipad or Nook have, will not relax the eyes. Matter of fact, they are counterproductive to becoming sleepy. However

  • Re: Logos 5: What would you like to see

    One other thing on notes. I currently have to type my notes in another program, like notepad, then cut and paste them into a notes document in Logos. I have a fast laptop, and in every other way it runs Logos with good speed. But notes are veeerrrryyyy slow and frustrating to type. It helps a bit to close a few resources in Logos, but I don't always

  • Re: Logos 5: What would you like to see

    In terms of notes, it seems that many want improvements here. I've tried to figure out exactly what it is that seems awkward about the current notes setup, and from my limited perspective, here is what I'd like to see: The current setup, plus another kind of note. As it is, we set up a note file, then we have to open that file to put notes in it while

  • Re: Logos 5: What would you like to see

    Further vs. Farther: Strictly speaking, farther should apply to physical distances: I walked farther today than I ever have before. Further should be used to apply to intangible "distances": A further reason for walking was that I needed exercise. However, the dictionary notes that these words have been used interchangeably for most of their histories

  • Re: Logos 5: What would you like to see

    While we're talking grammar, there's an interesting one in the thread just referenced: "why less women?" It's actually "why fewer women?" Less is used for non-quantifiable things, such as water or money. Fewer is used for quantifiable things, such as dollars or doughnuts. "Less money" but "fewer dollars." Learn something new every day, eh? Coming soon

  • As I sit quietly and savor a beautiful Easter Sunday...

    I reflect that this foundational day of our faith resonates more powerfully than ever for me this year. I suppose there are a number of reasons why, and prominent among them are a few that many of you may share. First, my Bible study is deeper and more meaningful than it's ever been, on a daily basis, due to the Logos software that I use. Yes, let's

  • Logos Resources as "New Media," dynamic rather than static

    The frequent resource updates got me to thinking. I saw that a couple of my commentaries and references were about to be "updated," and I assume that this is the tweaking of old content to jibe with a new kind of Logos software. But I wonder when the books themselves will become more dynamic and behave more like firmware? I remember how thrilled I was

  • Re: ESV Study Notes

    I actually got the full ESV Study Bible--Scripture and all the notes--for 10 dollars. On Kindle. I was shocked it would be sold for this low a price, and I jumped on it. Very good functionality, too. You read the Bible and the notes are hyperlinked to each verse. Works great. I would bet there are a few features missing but most of the good stuff is

  • Re: New laptop: will it meet the challenge of L4?

    Logos 4 ROCKS on the new laptop, by the way. Just far faster than I even hoped, maybe faster than L3 on my old computer. No worries.

  • My L4 is definitely faster than a couple of weeks ago

    I know I'm not the only one. I've seen at least one other mention of this on the forum. It seems as if Logos 4, which a few weeks ago was a bit glacial in speed, has picked up in speed. Not perky, mind you, but workable. I confess I had gone back to L3 to a large extent, but now, just after I ordered a new and speedy laptop, my older laptop is doing
