Carson in Pillar New Testament Commentary William Hendricksen's volume in the New Testament Commentary Gerald Bochert's two volumes on John in The New American Commentary George Beasely-Murray in The Word Biblical Commentary

  • Re: So, who else has found L9 to be a bit...underwhelming?

    Speaking as a daily Logos user since Logos 3, I like what they have done here. Logos 8 was a BIG step forward - albeit with some snags that have been noted. Rather than a big step forward, Logos 9 keeps the same general look and flow but make some significant upgrades and improvements. Personally, I am glad. I don't like to have to "re-learn" Logos

  • Best Values Among the Logos 9 Base Packages

    From a quick glance at the packages it appears there has been some re-configuring of them for Logos 9 - although my impression is that the changes are not as great as in past versions. I will definitely purchase a new Logos 9 package very soon. Does anyone have suggestions as to which package(s) represent the best value in terms of resources you get

  • Re: Self Learn Logos vs MP Training - please share your experience and thoughts

    I have been a Logos user for 12 years - starting with Logos 3. I tried a number of training options, but far and away the most beneficial was attending a Camp Logos two day seminar. Now MP Seminars is offering the videos to watch on your own time. For many of us "time" is the problem. The advantage of Camp Logos is that you clear your calendar and you

  • Re: Fellow Baptists particularly pastors what do you recommend as a basic library?

    Josh, great question. Writing this as a 25 year Southern Baptist pastor - and 12 year Logos user. Given your parameters mentioned, I would recommend the following.... Buy three study Bibles (all are basic, one volume commentaries) - The MacArthur Study Bible, The ESV Study Bible, and The Zondervan NIV Study Bible. Then get Thomas Constable's Notes.

  • Re: LOGOS Version question

    Joe, I speak to this as a daily Logos user since Logos 3. I can say that Logos 8 is a great step up from Logos 7. There is always a pretty cheap upgrade option with the new versions if all you want is the new functionality. Or my understanding is that the basic engine of the new version is always made available for free. The BIG thing to keep your eye

  • Re: Thompson Chain

    Brought back old memories, as the gift of a Thompson Chain Reference Bible was greatly helpful to me early in my study/ministry. Even though the Thompson Chain Reference Bible isn't for sale in Logos, The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge is a very similar type resource and I have found it to be very helpful - along with the old Nave's Topical.

  • Re: When does 30% on packages end? And does this mean Logos 9 is near?

    If there are things you want in a package at 30% off, I would say to go ahead and buy now. Whenever Logos 9 comes out the packages will be reworked and the resources you want might not be in the new packages. I came in on Logos 3 and this has been the case every time a new version has come out.

  • Re: New User Commentary Recommendations

    Lance, If you have not already purchased them, I would advise you to purchase three study Bibles - the ESV Study Bible, the Zondervan NIV Study Bible, and the Macarthur Study Bible. The notes are extensive and they are like commentaries on the entire Bible. This would be $100 or so well spent. The following sets are excellent and provide good original

  • Re: Logos Now Should I renew or not?

    I agree with some of the other comments that the value of LogosNow/FaithLifeConnect seems to have gone down. However, I also wonder if it is because I haven't taken the time to explore it more. I just allowed my subscription to renew, not because I feel it is a good value but because FaithLife has made it clear that they need consistent subscription

  • Re: Word Biblical Commentary to be $399.99 this weekend

    What an INCREDIBLE price for a great resource. I bought this set in print in 1994 and then again in Logos a few years back. It is extremely valuable.

  • Re: The future of Logos and Faithlife: Help us make the right decisions!

    Bob, thank you for the opportunity for input here. Since much of the input given so far has come from the perspective of smaller attendance/budget churches (which is the overwhelming majority), I will speak to this from the perspective of a senior pastor of a church with 600+ in attendance and $2 million budget. Larger established churches will tend

  • Re: Questions about moving from print to Logos?

    Mark, I see you are a Lead Pastor too. I use Logos daily for my personal devotion and for sermon preparation - having been a user since 2008. I would like to take a somewhat different approach to your question regarding completely converting to Logos. For me personally, I was a pastor for 14 years before purchasing Logos - accumulating a 1000 volume

  • Re: Looking to upgrade - Help me Decide

    Agree with the other commenters here. Pay 100% attention to the books you will get for your money that you will actually use. I understand why Logos packages them as "Silver, Gold, Platinum, etc." after all there must be some coherent delineation. However, the reality is that the different levels simply correspond to different books in the packages

  • Re: Is Logos 8 an improvement?

    I use Logos daily and upgraded to Logos 8 the very first day it was available. I can say without hesitation that it is a vast improvement. The improvement in speed and stability alone with worth the upgrade. They have made really good layout improvements. Lots of small things that are really good once you discover them. The panels on the homepage are

    I agree 100% about the CSB. It has quickly become my favorite translation after reading through it this year.

  • Customizing Dashboard Cards

    Overall, I like the idea of having the Dashboard Cards and I think I will use them. However, there is the issue I have. In my Bible reading plan that I use daily, it automatically created a dashboard card for it. However, when I open the card, it is really a layout that opens the Bible I am reading through, the notes tool, the FaithLife Study Bible

    [quote user="Josh Hunt"] I purchased Logos 8 a couple of days ago, and I must say I like it. I have had not trouble with crashes or hangs. I use Logos all day, every day. However, I don't use most of the features. I mostly do searches and commentary work. The stand out feature is that is is snappier. This is the Logos I have been looking for. The upgrade
