  • Re: Piper sermon archive: Why or why not?

    I haven't found the Piper archive all that insightful or helpful. But, then again... I'm not a huge fan of his preaching. The Adrian Rogers archive is more exegetically focused... the J.D. Greear archive (though sometimes cut/ paste from Keller) is often my favorite. But, if your set on Piper... purchase his books. Just my 2 cents.

  • Re: Is AYBC and ICC worth owning?

    Keith, Unlike some, I actually own both sets, so my evaluation isn't simply parroting what others have said. Though many of the ICC volumes are dated, the ones that have been updated are truly superb- particularly those on the NT (not such a fan of the Isaiah volumes). These commentaries are extremely technical and provide great exegetical insights

  • Re: AYBC Matthew Missing?

    It was dropped from the set several years ago... but honestly, it was one of the poorest commentaries in the set- almost as bad as the original volume on Revelation. The authors addressed several peripheral issues, but failed to provide any real exegesis- many pericopes only received a 1/2 page comment. I'm not sure when it'll be updated.

  • Re: How would you compare Anchor Yale Bible Commentary to Hermeneia?

    Michael, As a set, the AYB is better... hands down. Hermeneia is often SO technical that it misses the forest for the trees (in addition, many of its conclusions are suspect). The AYB has many exceptional volumes, such as: Leviticus, 1 & 2 Samuel, Proverbs, Jeremiah, Jonah, Luke, John, James, Hebrews, & the revised Revelation. Though I come

  • Re: Faith Life just plain sucks

    If you have a "beef" with FL, take it up with FL (Mt. 18:15- though the context is a bit different, the principle still applies). The forums are not the place for this. So, seeing that this was "the last straw," I suspect you'll be leaving the forums. I wish you the best!

  • Re: How do I find the page number of a digital resource for citation purposes?

    Cynthia, If you copy the desired text and paste it into MS Word it automatically includes a footnote (with the page number). IMO this is the easiest way to determine the page numbers while also citing your source. Just make sure that you choose the appropriate citation style in the program settings.

  • Re: The Preacher's Outline & Sermon Bible

    Greg, I’ll try to answer each of your questions in turn: 1) The general theological perspective is not identified (e.g. Baptist, Methodist, Lutheran, etc.), but based upon their statement of faith- https://www.outlinebible.org/learn/statement-of-faith/ and what I’ve seen, it is solidly evangelical. 2) According to the Logos site the prepub price is

  • Re: The Preacher's Outline & Sermon Bible

    JH, I have several volumes in paper, and I have found them invaluable- they're great for teaching in-depth Bible studies. Though they touch on significant theological issues, they are not commentaries; they provide expositional outlines, exegetical insights (key words, historical background, etc.), and focus on application (its pretty in depth). The

  • Send to Kindle

    The send to Kindle feature was one of the best innovations/ features that Logos has ever introduced. I for one, am thankful. But... I would love to see this feature for the various sermon archives (e.g. MacArthur, Keller, and Platt). Piper's sermons already have this feature, so I suspect it can be done.

    My new DP on base packages has increased anywhere from $50 to almost $1000 (Collector's). Unacceptable.

  • Re: The Anchor Yale Bible (88 vols.) Feedback

    Jim, For me, the AYB was an excellent investment. Though I may not always agree with a given author's conclusions, the exegetical insights (at least among the newer volumes) are top notch. To provide some perspective, there are many volumes that I value more than the NICOT/ NT, WBC, NIGNT, PNTC, and BECNT/ OT counterparts. I strongly recommend the following

  • How to Zoom in on Maps?

    On my previous laptop, I was able to zoom non-"atlas" maps by using the mouse toggle (not sure what its called). But, my new computer doesn't appear to have that function. Is there some other way to zoom maps that don't show the "Fit" scale on the toolbar?

  • Re: The Preacher's Outline & Sermon Bible

    I'm not as familiar with the other works, but based upon their product pages several observations are noteworthy. 1) The Baker Sermon Outlines (50 vol.) appears to be a collection of short pamphlets totaling 3,021 pages (about 200 words per page and 300 words per outline- extremely brief), with no real exegetical insight. 2) The Sermon Outline Bible

  • Re: The Preacher's Outline & Sermon Bible

    Well its been a long time coming, but its finally nearing production! I suspect we only need a few more bids and it'll be pushed over the top. For those who are unfamiliar with this set, it is a top-notch... not to mention quite a steal for this price.

  • The Preacher's Outline & Sermon Bible

    While searching through the PrePub page, I came across a real gem: The Preacher’s Outline & Sermon Bible . Those who have used it can attest to its value- 1) it provides both an exegetical & expositional outline, 2) identifies and defines key words, and 3) suggests a possible development of the sermon. Like any other commentary or sermon archive, this

    I'm embarrassed by the obvious lack of love and unity among those who claim the name of Christ. Why are we arguing and accusing one another over a book ? Enough said.

    Thank you for your quick replies! It sounds like NICOT/NT may be the better investment. Surprisingly, no one has recommended the Portfolio upgrade. Thanks again!

  • Which is the Better Investment... (Portfolio, Anchor Bible, NICOT/NT)

    Which of the above resources is the best investment for a pastor of a mid-size church? I already own L6 Platinum (standard), PNTC, BECNT, NIGTC, NAC, JPS, TOTC/ NT, NIVAC, EBC, and newer volumes from ICC. Quantitatively, an upgrade to Portfolio is the best “bang for the buck,” but I doubt that I would use many of the resources (e.g. classic commentaries

  • Suggestions for a Tablet?

    I am considering purchasing a tablet, and would greatly appreciate input as to what would be most suitable for my needs… Not looking to run “full” Logos, but simply able to read various books (i.e. commentaries)- more like an e-reader I don’t want to be “tethered” to the internet- my library access should not be dependent upon my connection to the internet
