  • Re: What are your Top 5 Bible Translations in 2021 and why?

    I could almost copy P A 's list verbatim, but I'll make a few more comments: ESV--My default for teaching, personal, and academic use; I like the elegant language and accuracy. NIV 2011--When in doubt, my default for preaching or casual usage at times when the ESV's precision is not required. I agree wholeheartedly with the description of it as "a bit

    [quote user="Robert Neely"]I was wondering what the basis of your statements were regarding the ratings on Logos. Are you saying people are "sandbagging" the ratings? Do you have evidence of this? If so, can you share it? Distorted ratings should be brought to management's attention if true.[/quote] Not at all. I think some of it is just people wanting

    [quote user="SineNomine"]There may not be anything in it that you want at the prices offered, but that doesn't make it a bad sale.[/quote] Sometimes--like after a version upgrade and a Christmas sale--this is a relief more than anything.

    Well, color me surprised! I'm more disappointed that a long-awaited pre-pub hasn't shipped today as it was supposed to, though I guess there may still be time for that. [quote user="SineNomine"] Maybe we'll get something tomorrow about starting the New Year off right with a 2,021 book collection. [/quote] It's possible!

  • Re: FAITHLIFE IS MORE LIKE A BUSINESS

    [quote user="Rene Atchley"]It's neither in my view. I think the observation that FL is akin to a business like McDonald's pretty much sums up all the endless debate about the Christian nature of FL...its like a McDonald's. [/quote] I beg to differ. It's like an Applebee's.

  • Re: Look at Starter Packages while Introductory Pricing is in effect!

    [quote user="John Kaess"]Now that I'm settled into Logos 9, it occurred to me that with the 15% discount available, this is the perfect time to take a look at all the Logos and Verbum Starter packages. I've purchased 5 so far all for less than $20 each (some less than $10). It's a great way to inexpensively broaden the scope of your resources for a

    [quote user="MJ. Smith"]No thank you. Best Commentaries has no basis for authority and would be akin to Faithlife explicitly supporting one particular theology above others.

  • Re: Divergent upgrade prices...confused and need help

    I'm by no means an upgrade expert, but a few points: Ref. Silver doesn't come with the full feature set but the Silver feature set. I think the price is lower in the cart because it's just for the library and not the feature set. I tried putting it in my cart (I've not upgraded to L9 at all yet), and it just says "L9 Reformed Silver". So, apparently

  • Re: I am tempted to buy Barth....why should I?

    [quote user="Rosie Perera"]I remember my mother saying something about being suspicious of Barth when I was a young believer. She had heard he was "liberal", so she didn't want to read some book of his that had been given to her, so she was getting rid of it.[/quote] Technically, Barth was the diametric opposite of a liberal theologian.
