    [quote user="Olli-Pekka Ylisuutari"] [quote user="DAL"] The Apostle Paul had a shady past and I love his material ( 1 Thessalonians 5:21 ) 👍😁👌 [/quote] Well put! While we're at it, I might add that the Jews in Berea "received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so" (Acts 17: 11).

    [quote user="DAL"] The Apostle Paul had a shady past and I love his material (1 Thessalonians 5:21) 👍😁👌 [/quote] The difference is he was reborn with the Spirit of God, and his works as we have them are after that event. In these other cases, these are presumably men who were Christians, claimed the Spirit of God, but still fell back to some of the

I can't think of how it reflects on their work itself, or shapes the "what" of their point, so maybe these two are still useful (although I've hardly examined all of Kittel, either the full or condensed versions).

  • Should I feel bad for using scholars with shady pasts?

    Finding out Kittel was a literal Nazi prosecuted in the Nuremberg trials, or that Archibald Robertson was an enthusiastic segregationist kind of spoils using them as reference materials. And it's not like you can wave them off as "men of their time" either. They had plenty of opposing viewpoints in their own time. At the very least, it'd be nice if

    [quote user="elliott siu"] Hey folks. While I would not consider myself a progressive Christian, I would be interested in reading from that point of view to broaden my approach to sermon application. Does anyone have recommendations for commentaries or study Bibles that have a progressive Christian perspective on Logos? [/quote] That's a good question

That would put us at October 2022 This is total speculation, but I wonder if a complete GUI change will come. It has not changed tremendously since Logos 4 and they MIGHT want to do something different for version 10 - a bit of a milestone. Besides

    It's certainly fast enough (using a MacBook Air btw). I don't really notice that it's still emulated for Intel. What speed issues exist always existed for both Windows and Mac. I'm not a fan of the .NET design underlying the program.. or any robust program like this. It's better for short term rapid development. Logos is begging for a more "bare metal

  • Re: Wesleyan Bible Commentary (7 vols.) - Reviews?

    If you're looking for an Arminian commentary, I'd snatch up the Logos 7 Wesleyan Starter Library before anything. Who knows when that will disappear. It's an amazing deal and has Ben Witherington/Craig Keener/David DeSilva's Socio-Rhetorical series (it only covers the NT), along with Adam Clarke and Wesley's old commentaries, which are still great themselves

  • Modern Apocryphal New Testament

    Logos could use a modern variation of apocryphal NT writings to accompany Charlesworth's Pseudepigrapha. I have a hardcover from JK Elliot, printed by Oxford in the 80s, called the Apocryphal New Testament (the same name as MR James' classic. This was intended as an update). It's only in softcover now (ISBN: 9780198261810) , but it seems to be the same
