  • Re: CP: Classic Commentaries and Studies Collections Pricing Strategy

    I changed the bidding to $50 as suggested - I see a second peak arising.

  • Plug - the Value of a Roman and Byzantine period lexicon

    LSJ is of course the standard work to see the background of NT words, but the middle ages tell us where the word in the NT was heading in terms of meaning. From Logos: "The sheer range that the Greek Lexicon of the Roman and Byzantine Periods covers sets it apart from virtually all other lexicons. In English, there are only two lexicons that even attempt

  • Re: Dictionary of Early Christian Beliefs

    Has anyone tried contacting Scroll about this one? I will, if no-one comes forward, though I think someone with a good relationship with them would be better to approach them. This work would be very valuable on Logos, as it would allow instant checking of the sources in context, and would also be suitable for cutting and pasting quotations to be used

  • Re: Need more bids for the Classic Commentary on Philippians

    [quote user="MJD"] Why would you lower your bid? It is like letting air out of a balloon, it needs all the air to stay in it, in order to lower the price further. If you remove overall dollars more people need to bid. [/quote] I lowered mine too - as long as it doesn't immediately return to $80, it's fine - it doesn't change anything either way, but

  • Lower Bidding Range on Revelation Commentaries

    The Revelation Commentary set at http://www.logos.com/product/8522/classic-commentaries-and-studies-on-revelation is currently peaking at $160, but this high peak has also apparently brought the bidding process to a complete halt, as potential new bidders are scared off by the high price. The $160 price is not much less than what other sets are selling

  • Any News on Dead Sea Scrolls in English?

    Any news on when Michael Wise's translation might be available? We do have Vermes, but this is the expensive 1995 study edition ($120), not the cheap ($11.70 book, $9.99 kindle) 2004 edition.

    Yes, that would be a better buy. I still hope Wise's version is developed soon.

  • Re: Dear Logos, If you would like to reduce me to abject poverty - me and my laptop on the streets stealing wi-fi from Starbucks

    The Ancient Christian commentary series can still be purchased for Logos - I picked it up a month or so ago for around $250, sealed in its box.

    These threads seem to be used as an excuse for foolishness and stupidity rather than Logos related discussion.

  • Re: Why upgrade from Logos 4 silver to platinum?

    [quote user="Cory MacNeil"] Hi, This is my first post on this forum. I've had Logos 4 silver for about a year now. This upgrade deal for Christmas is appealing, but I want to know what some seasoned users think. Is it worth it to upgrade from silver to platinum? I realize it's an opinion, but I'm curious. It seems as though I'm not getting much more

  • Re: Lenski - whatdya wreckon

    I'm in two minds too - the introductions seem pretty unimaginative, and just trots out the usual on times, dates, authors (and I'm big in these things - I buy commentaries often as much for the intros). But a few things he says in the actual commentaries grabbed my eye as I reviewed on Google. I'm going to give it a try. I have thirty days to change

  • Re: Lenski - whatdya wreckon

    I'm not sure about all this. Verbal aspect is a major area of debate and discussion among scholars these days, and it's not an area I know much about, having learned Greek in Classics departments seemingly more at home in the nineteenth century. Where do scholars like Wallace stand with respect to the work of Porter, or Black? If participles are not

  • Re: Lenski - whatdya wreckon

    Well I have just gone to the introduction to the Gospel of John in Lenski and have already found some observations that have been useful. The chances are looking good that I'm going to keep this set.

  • Re: Lenski - whatdya wreckon

    I'm surprised at how dogmatic Lensky is, presenting conjectures as fact, such as when he states that John settled in Ephesus between 66-69, without so much as a note to the reader that this is at best an educated guess. I'm also surprised to see him claim that Papias referred to only one John, when even scholars who reject the existence of a separate

    [quote user="George Somsel"] It says it's unicode, but apparently it's snot. I had to download it to see the Greek myself. I would suggest that you download the Logos Biblical Greek Keyboard and install it following the instructions in the accompanying PDF if you haven't already done so and retype each line of Greek in unicode, then copy it.

    [quote user="Kevin Becker"] You can use macros to convert old documents from legacy fonts to Unicode characters. See this tread for an example: http://community.logos.com/forums/t/37520.aspx [/quote] Thanks Kevin. It looks like this could be quite time consuming, especially with accents etc, but it's something to consider. Looking around, it looks like
