  • Re: Mormon Studies Collection (45 vols.)

    I think a good resource for this set would be one that compares Orthodox Christianity with LDS theology. For example, Looking at the eternality of the Father in Orthodox Christianity and the belief that the Heavenly Father was born and lived as a man on another planet before coming here as god with a body in LDS theology. Or that Jesus was born spiritually

    [quote user="Ben"] "Ben - Would you consider yourself a Mormon?" Yes, and have been for all 20 years I've been using Logos and on the forums. And I'll prove it by saying, since calling it "the Mormon Church" can be misleading, we'd really prefer to use the full name, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I'm a Latter-day Saint, a follower

    [quote user="Ben"] I have a list of good recent scholarly material here. https://community.logos.com/forums/t/88557.aspx Evangelical counter-cult materials tend to distort the groups they are looking at. Would James White sell as a "mormon expert" to the average logos user? Almost certainly. Would it be helpful in actually understanding Mormonism? No

    [quote user="David Wanat"] I’d be interested in authoritative but non-dogmatic works that would give me context for claims made in favor or against. Assuming I haven’t misinterpreted Ben, the works other than BoM/D&C/Pearl don’t fit that. [/quote] Linked back to different versions of the BOM, " 2000 Changes in the Book of Mormon

    [quote user="Jan Krohn"] Copyrighted books can't go into community pricing, so James White's books are not really an option. But I'm quite sure I've seen him use Logos in his live streams, and as a customer he might be willing to give some input on the contents of such a collection. Ron Rhodes would be another scholar who has done a good amount of research

    What do you suggest should be added to it to make it more complete? Maybe James White's Letters to a Mormon Elder? Or Is the Mormon my Brother? Maybe Forgotten Trinity?

    Another few years have passes and it looks like we have 70% of the people we need to make this product a reality. Let's pray God will work in the hearts of those whom He desires to bring the gospel to the Mormons through this resource and it will be available soon - Maybe in this lifetime?

  • Re: Logos 9 Sermon Manager inserting a sermon

    Thank you. I will check it out again when 9.2 is released. Until then, I am using logo resources, but preparing my messages outside of Logos. This and being required to have an internet connection to go into preach mode are 2 show-stoppers for me.

  • Re: Absolutely (almost) thrilled with Preaching Mode

    Gregory - Thank you for raising this issue. It was a show stopper last week. I tested it at home and everything worked great. When I got to church with no internet, it didn't work. Thankfully I could still access it in Logos, just not the view I expected. I will try bringing it up before I leave, but if it doesn't get fixed, I will need to go back to

  • Logos 9 Sermon Manager inserting a sermon

    I am putting my sermons in sermon manager and notices I missed a week. Can I insert it and push all of the weeks back or delete a week and pull all of the messages forward? If I am going to put more than a month or so in here, this would be helpful as things come up that interrupt the current series.

    Facebook and Youtube (owned by Google) are about the same level of evil and from that perspective there isn't much difference.

    I would be VERY VERY disappointed if they moved away from an installed version of the software. I often go long periods without internet. We have no internet at the church. While I don't travel as much as I used to, I used to write my sermons on the plane. Right now, I have a powerful laptop and over 6000 books at my fingertips without having to go
