  • Re: Verbum Now Slim Pickings

    For Lutheran literature, there is a problem with finding things in English that are public domain. Luther: You are actually pretty good now at having the PD English Luther in your catalogue. There are some 16th century translations that would be of historical interest in how they influenced Anglicans, but I am not really an expert on those. What I am

    [quote user="Ken McGuire"]In the original, the footnotes were numbered by page. I have renumbered them for this edition. Where footnotes reference other footnotes, I have added a parenthetical note for the new number. In addition, I have converted the greek into unicode. From Archive.org I see that there is extensive introductory material. I have not

  • Re: Verbum Now Slim Pickings

    As a Lutheran, I sort of feel your pain. When I look at Logos Now offerings that are Lutheran, I have a grand total of 3 that are new to me, other than a collection of Ambrose Letters and books on the Heidelberg Catechism that are mis-catigorized.

  • Re: How is your church adapting for COVID-19?

    [quote user="Olli-Pekka Ylisuutari"] Here's what Martin Luther had to say about this during the 1520's when pestilence (the Black death) was wreacking havoc in Wittenberg, Germany: "It is even more shameful for a person to pay no heed to his own body and to fail to protect it against the plague the best he is able, and then to infect and poison others

  • Re: Jacobs - Elements of Religion

    Recently I looked over at Community Pricing and saw that Henry Jacobs has a later "systematic" theology work up for bid at https://www.logos.com/product/43138/a-summary-of-the-christian-faith . It looks like the work up for bid is significantly longer, and written about a decade later than this work. Since the last update I posted years ago, I have

  • Re: ( multi user ) Add My wife as a User but I don't want to mix my highlights, notes, etc.

    The reason I am a Logos user is because Logos has had sufficient Digital Rights Management that they have been able to license many "top shelf" books into digital form. It started when I was getting tired of going to the local Community College library to look up articles in their copy of the Anchor Bible Dictionary, but there are many other such works

    While we are at it, the two volumes from SPCK by James Stevenson, namely A New Eusebius and Creeds, Councils and Controversies are also missing any destination milestones.

    Unfortunately for us, Father Harmless has graduated to the Church Triumphant, but the annotated Bibliography he left on the web has been quite useful for me over the years. It is currently hosted at http://moses.creighton.edu/JRS/toc/bibliographies.html

  • Re: Bonhoeffer book

    For better or worse, publishers often pick the title they want when they see a work. In 1937, Dietrich Bonhoeffer published a work in German called Nachfolge . After Bonhoeffer did indeed die as a result of living out what he understood as his calling as a Christian, this work was translated into English and published as The Cost of Discipleship with

    As someone who as used For All the Saints off an on for over twenty five years, this would be great. That said, unless somehow ALPB has some form of digital rights to all the fourth readings and various prayers of saints included that Logos would be able to use, getting rights for it would be almost certainly be enough of a nightmare that it would be

    English New Testaments: As a leader, you want to have on your priority list the English text that most of your people have in front of them, so whatever else I suggest, make sure that whatever else I say and suggest, you include it. It probably can fit one of the roles I am about to list, but make sure you use it - and know what roles it can do. 1)

  • Re: Why do some Jews not believe that Jesus is Messiah

    Decades ago on a religious debate forum, I recall a Jewish participant basically saying this: If Jesus is the messiah, then he would have brought in the messianic age. But in so many ways the world we live in is not the messianic age. But Christians, being so nice have decided to give Jesus a second chance....

But the Anglican church has famously waffled on canonicity of certain works while admitting they are good to read and including them in lectionaries for centuries, and we Lutherans have often said similar

  • Re: Basic features for 1,189.24$?

    When I run that report I get a section "Septuagint Translation" that uses the "Logos LXX" but when I click on it, it does list Swete as an option to use for the report. Perhaps it doesn't work with the Greek-English Interlinear? That would be stupid, but computers and certainly be stupidly literal...

  • Re: Basic features for 1,189.24$?

    My understanding is that with Logos Basic, you don't actually "own" anything. Instead, you get a renewable free rental of things. Going from purchases to rentals is the way the market in general seems to be going with the digital world, and so would be a different negotiation between Faithlife and the rights holders...
