  • Re: Definitions that don't show in Info.

    Well, now I do too with both midrashim and midrashic. I can't explain why that occurred before. At the time I tried more than once. Is it possible that one of the instances it is used was not linked? Later I will go through the sections I was using and try each time the word is used to see if that is the case or if I just had a temporary issue. Thanks

    There was no definition or acknowledgement of "midrashim". Only when "midrash" happened to be used later in the commentary was I able to see definition by clicking on it. I didn't know enough about it to look for "midrash" on my own had it not shown up.

  • Re: Definitions that don't show in Info.

    Looking further, I did see that "midrash" is defined in this particular instance. So perhaps the extension of forms of the terms is what would be helpful in this case. Still, although I can't recall specific words at this moment, frequently there are times where a term is not defined.

  • Definitions that don't show in Info.

    I often have a small Info tab to the right of what I am reading/studying so that when I click a word the definition (among other things) show. I have noticed many times that words that are common in or at least relevant to scholarly study of Scripture, do not show up. The most recent was "midrashim". I Google them but it would be nice if I could see

    Hmm, there was another link I used before to see Package contents, now it is not working.

  • Re: Repeating sales

    Have only been on here since Aug but I wish I had another shot at the Top Commentaries Sale. It was approx Sept. It was heavily discounted sale for top individual commentarise for each book of the Bible not the series. I think it was the top 5 rated for each book of the Bible?

  • Re: My Reading Plan 2021 (Share your own!)

    Michael, I am retired as well and have the time for it, despite having 12 & 15 year old kids :-) I want to stay the course for my current daily reading plan this year, so I would start this new plan Jan 2022, to your point I don’t want to overthink it but have plenty of time to adjust. Your total collection hits right around the sweet spot

    Michael, Loved the idea of what you are doing and thinking of what resources I would use. I am interested in what went into you choosing: -Introduction/Survey (Exploring the Old and New Testament - 6 volumes): I have this but have not utilized it and at this point I plan to use this for my plan as well. If anyone else has suggestions for what to use

  • Re: My Reading Plan 2021 (Share your own!)

    Michael, be encouraged I suspect you will get it done with room to spare. This encourages me. I like it because of structure. I am good about sticking to my reading plan. Outside of that I have way too many books/resources I am reading simultaneously that I not only don’t end up finishing them all but certainly am taking less from them than I

    RE: Spouses. I am optimistic that FL in good faith stands by their communication to us customers by their reps. In late Aug of 2020 before I began utilizing Logos and made a large purchase, I asked about my wife using Logos. I am paraphrasing but the communication was that although their written policy states that it is for single person use, as long

    Also, reviewing Logos 9 Basic (Free), there is a lot of redundancy in the Christian Family Level 1 ($99) further reducing the value of the Christian Family Level 1. Would be wise to provide different resources.

  • Re: Christian Family Base Packages - now available!

    In general I am excited about a move in this direction! Thinking both about the big picture and longer term about the value for my family, I have some questions comments and some suggestions. -It was indicated that each family member would not have access to resources I already own, on the flip side would if my family members create a stand alone account

    Thank you all for the feedback, I pulled the trigger.

  • Re: "A Marginal Jew"

    Thinking of pulling the trigger on this, very intrigued. Olli's recommendations have proven to be solid in the past and that alone is enough. I did want to see if anyone else has read some or all of these volumes and in your opinion would you recommend to someone that is neither in ministry or a seminary student?

    “although I would describe it is that you start at whatever is the first point of divergent beliefs” Well sure if you want to say it more succinctly

    MJ, your list of topics from the diocese lean more towards theology than what I typically think of as apologetics as all of them would assume that you are starting with someone who believes in our God. I personally think Apologetics begins at its basis with someone who may not in believe a any type of god. Then the the topics progress from there based

    Regarding Geisler 12 points Jan referred to, I hope this link is copied correctly but Geisler does an online Apologetics course that offers a certificate from SES for free. I did it and is a great starter course. The one at Biola was much, much more comprehensive but not free and much more time consuming. https://academy.ses.edu/courses/introduction

    Ha, that is where I “borrowed” most of the primary topics I suggested ;-)
