  • Check out the Verbum freebies too.

    As I did a few months ago, this Lutheran recommends that we outside the Church of Rome look at the featured Verbum books this month. The Freebie is Origen’s Homilies on Luke. Origen was probably the most important theologian and exegete of the 3rd century. He was near indispensible for those who followed him, and yet was also startling original

  • Importance of Cassiodorus

    I have been greatly impressed by the volumes of ACW which I have read - and in spite of being a Lutheran, tend to spend a fair amount in the "Fathers". And so I am more than a bit interested at a surface level on the volumes that are in the Verbum July sale. But I know little about the importance of Cassiodorus's work on the Psalms. Is there anyone

  • Re: Duplicate entries & typos in Factbook: list here

    Ran into an odd one today. It appears that "Joh Konrad Wilhelm Loehe (Gymnasium)" is the same as "William Loehe". As much as I want to claim him for my Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod, he was a Bavarian Lutheran. He sent quite a few missionaries to LCMS, but actually started by working with the Joint Synod of Ohio before working with Missouri, and

  • Re: "New Testament Originally in Aramaic": Resources?

    About all I know about is that I ran into some people who were claiming this based on the popularization by Dr. Errico and his Noohra Foundation . I am not aware of anything in Logos of this theory that the New Testament autographs are Aramaic, and should be interpreted as such.

  • Why you should look at the Logos 7 denominational Starter packages

    As many have mentioned here, the best deals to expand your library are usually the base packages. And denominational base packages have been a way to add some good books, even if it isn’t your denomination. With the sale on Logos 7 packages at the end of this month, I want to recommend the following Starter level packages. Logos 7 Anglican Starter

    [quote user="SineNomine"] This seems like a straightforward problem for Kyle to resolve. [/quote] Yeah. It certainly sounds like a simple oversight that can be corrected if the issue gets in the hands of the right person. And so I truly want this to be a gentle nudge to Faithlife and not a whiny complaint.

  • Gregory of Nyssa Catechetical Discourse missing Gregory of Nyssa tagging

    Over the weekend I was pleased to see the Popular Patristics volume of Gregory of Nyssa's Catechetical Discourse download to my library as the prepub went through. And I was quite please to see how it is tagged to send me to other patristic works in my library. I was disappointed to not see that it is not a destination for the Gregory of Nyssa datatype

    I am not aware of anything to your specific question.

    Most of my PB's are like this also - but I am pretty sure it is because I usually don't enter the information Logos needs to provide the data - namely, I have not added the "Publisher & Publication Date" field in the Library Information section of the PB tool. This field is NOT listed by default, so it is quite easy to not input. But if you click

    I cannot see any clear rule as to how Logos tags these - and that is a problem. And yet, while I would say that some documents are both, there is a distinction between Catechisms and Confessional Documents. Speaking as a Lutheran, Luther's Small and Large Catechisms are both Catechisms and Confessional Documents. But the extended Explanations of the
