• I currently have Logos 7 Gold with a scholar's package. This version works great and I am very happy with it. However, I have compared all of the options in the new base package, and unless I go with Logos 8 Gold, I do not see the value in an upgrade for my needs. Even at the Gold level, a lot of the resources seem to be dated, redundant to what I already have, or fluff. I do not want to sound difficult because I LOVE this software, but for academic use, I think there needs to be a little more flexibility in the options.
    1. I don't see a non library upgrade that includes all the features like workflows. The feature upgrade page suggests I would get a lot of interlinears and other books which of course bulks up the price.

      Charles Archer -- Good point. In my estimation, Karl Barth is more deformed than reformed. But L8 and previous "Reformed" packages inevitably include a hefty dose of "Barf".
    3. I agree it's ok to sell a product but I think Wells Fargo, I mean Faithlife need to turn down overtly I mean overly pushing resources. If Wells Fargo made there bank better, Sorry once again I mean Logos made their software better let me enjoy the new features without forcing /opening new accounts/ resources that I really don't need regardless of " pricing incentives " …..12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, 13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.The Holy Bible: King James Version. (2009). (Electronic Edition of the 1900 Authorized Version., Mt 21:12–13). Bellingham, WA: Logos Research Systems, Inc.  Jesus did not toss them out just because they were selling in the temple but because they were taking advantage of the peoples needing/ wanting to make sacrifices and over charging and pushing stuff that people did not necessarily need e.g. He was to be the only sacrifice they would need!!!
  • I hear this text is great, but it is 50 years old, and there has been a lot of work done since this was first published. Is there anything comparable that is current? : - )
    1. The only comprehensive selection of ANE texts besides Pritchard's that I know of on Logos is The Context of Scripture (3 vols.). If you want something a bit cheaper and up-to-date, but not on Logos, then I would recommend Beyer's and Arnold's Readings from the Ancient Near East or Matthew's and Benjamin's Old Testament Parallels. Perhaps Lopez-Ruiz's Gods, Heroes, and Monsters which includes come Greek material.
