  • Re: Refrain from editorializing author biographies- ex. Brevard Childs

    [quote user="SineNomine"]Whether "liberal" is pejorative or not, I think a fair number of Bible scholars would raise an eyebrow or two upon seeing that adjective related to Brevard Childs. Others would disagree with "positive."[/quote] Exactly. Brevard Childs had a career of criticizing Liberal Theology and Biblical Studies. He may not be some people

    It is currently not possible to use personal books on the mobile app. I am not aware if they are working on adding this functionality any more.

  • Re: Loeb or Perseus?

    An example of both Loeb (on Left) and Perseus (on Right) opened to a passage quite early in Plato's Republic. Both have tagging as a destination for the Plato datatype. Both have the surface text and are tagged with lemma forms for each word. Loeb is broken up into more readable paragraphs. Loeb also includes page number tagging. The about panel says

  • Re: Ante Nicene Fathers?

    Looking closer I see a few sets that may interest you. First off, there is the old "Schaff" - although he didn't edit the ante Nicenes... It is actually a decent collection, but it has a few problems. It is dated - unaware of the many textual discoveries since then. Clement gets a bit specific in how he talks about sex, and the Victorian editors decided

  • Re: Ante Nicene Fathers?

    There are lots of different collections of various "fathers". The collection you link is almost certainly the largest collection of ante Nicene writings translated into English. I have not read all of them - or even most of them. But the volumes I have read from that series are quite readable and include some good basic notes to get you started on them

  • Re: Prayer in the Church Fathers - A request for help from Catholic/Orthodox brothers and sisters.

    Like MJ, I was shocked by the Beale quote you posted - and even more shocked to see how well this work has been reviewed online, with a few reviews saying how well he knows the primary sources. What I have learned in trying to seriously engage some of these figures is that while they are almost always using the terminology of various forms of Platonism

  • Re: Time line for "heresies" in the NT

    Just about any Church History text will give evidence for when certain ideas were debated in the early church. But the exact history of when the idea started has been greatly debated since at least Bauer's Orthodoxy and Heresy was written, where he argued that there is evidence that ideas rejected as Heresy later have quite early roots - and were actually

  • Re: Prayer in the Church Fathers - A request for help from Catholic/Orthodox brothers and sisters.

    In just about every field of study a vocabulary develops over time to express the concepts of that field. Almost always this jargon comes from the wider world, but develops certain specific meanings in that field. And much of the study undertaken to become a professional in that field is to learn that specific jargon so that you know what it means

  • Re: TIP of the day: Interactive - why I avoid Counting the Ten Commandments interactive

    I am sure that there are people more expert than I, but the stone tablet looks quite odd to me. Usually I see the two tablets divided by "Tables of the Law" with (since I am Lutheran) the first three commandments being on the first tablet on the left, and 4-10 on the 2nd tablet on the right. Of course, this "tradition" may be something that was made

  • Re: PBB error

    I have noticed behavior like this with the compiler for years. Sometimes it happens because the book is "open" by the indexer working in the background, but often I can see no reason why it is giving that error. But closing Logos and restarting it almost always works.

  • Re: Augustine on the Cheap

    I pulled up the Concordance tool on my Battles translation of Calvin's Institutes.... 573 links to the works of Augustine. The Verbum Augustine collection would include a more readable The City of God, The Trinity as well as many of the Anti-Pelagian works Calvin references. In addition, the collection includes two volumes of Augustine's works on the

  • Re: Prayer in the Church Fathers - A request for help from Catholic/Orthodox brothers and sisters.

    I just listened to the podcast you mentioned. First thing I must say is that it the whole podcast shows how vastly differently different communities express their faith in Christ, and the different challenges they are facing. These differences make me hesitate to speak - and yet I already have. There is a lack of shared language and history that makes

  • Re: Prayer in the Church Fathers - A request for help from Catholic/Orthodox brothers and sisters.

    I am Lutheran, but have spent a fair amount of time with some of the Fathers... I would start off with what the Ecumenical Councils said. The first two are largely about the doctrine of God, and Constantinople 1 has given us the "Nicene" creed we still use today, granted in various translations and debate about the filioque added in the West... The

  • Re: using Logos for theological research

    I hesitate to disagree with Mark Barnes, who has given countless users quality advice. That said, I would go about things slightly differently, holding off on using Commentaries as long as I can. First of all, I would re-read 1st Corinthians - ideally in a translation different from what I am used to. This can be either a radically different English

  • Re: Confused about guidelines. Is there a place for theological discussion?

    Words are important. And the first word to notice is that they are Guidelines, and not rigid rules, or terms of service. There are many times when conversation has drifted beyond those guidelines, and I have participated in some of those discussions. That said, there is a lot of wisdom in those Guidelines. The users of this forum includes sometimes

  • Re: Any hot rumors on MM?

    Like many others, the bundle size for MM just seems way too much for me, even if they won. That said, I found the Verbum fathers collections smaller, and found a few that would be attractive since I had most of it already (eg. Athanasius), and for better or worse a few where I already had all of the collection (eg. Justin and Irenaeus). I certainly

    As someone who has three printed volumes of the NCP Augustine series within arms reach right now, I am both excited that they are finally coming to Logos as well as put off by how expensive they are. That said, I have more than a bit of hope that some volumes from the NCP set will eventually make it into base packages, topical collections, etc. This

    My installation of Logos 8 has three versions of the KJV text, and I believe they are the same three versions that have been in the software since Logos 4.0 days, namely the Cambridge Paragraph, the 1900 Cambridge, and the 1769 KJV that has been in Logos since the beginning. I will fully admit that I don't know the exact details about which ones are
