- I would like to use an atlas to follow along with daily reading and family devotions. Do any of you Logos veterans have a good suggestion?
- Looking for info on this too. I'm new to the Logos software and just trying out the free version at the moment. there is so much to learn.
- The Holman Bible Atlas is a great one to use. The maps are helpful (though hard to see on small screens), and the articles have enough depth to make Scripture clear without getting hung up with minute details and academic jargon.
- I would like to see the following resources made available in a package for the benefit of many home schooled children who participate in the National Bible Bee: Greek and Hebrew language and helps such as Strong's concordance etc; Bible Memorization tools; Maps; Ray Comfort Collection; A few commentaries; 5 different Bible versions (KJV, NKJV, ESV, NIV and NAS)
- I would add "The Pilgrims Progress" and a few biographies as well. George Mueller, Spurgeon, Luther, as examples. I'd also add "Foxes Book of Martyrs" Our 7yo is amazing for his age in Bible knowledge,but, The inspiration of "The Heroes of the Faith" can really inspire a young mind and help them to see that Bible knowledge in action.
- Thanks for adding to the idea. I was rethinking the Bible versions and thought that Faithlife could offer a package giving an option of one of those 5 versions since they are the ones used in the National Bible Bee.
- Can my 6th grader get a discount on a Logos bundle as a "student?" I want to start teaching her to use some Logos features like reverse interlinears and need to get her a basic package. Or if you could launch a Homeschool package that includes some of these resources I would be very interested
- >not at this point. But perhaps in the future we'll be able to allow you to share your existing library (or qualifying portions of it) with members of your family. Phil Gons (Faithlife), I'd love to see that "future possibility" implemented. That said, as long as the new Base Packages have dynamic pricing, that should be a good start.
- Praying for Godly wisdom as Faithlife creates & implements Christian Home base packages (perhaps in 2019 for License Agreement modification) while being cognizant that Faithlife apps & applications have been designed with single user focus so suspect every group-licensed user should have their own installation(s) for personalization, reading progress, ... FYI: know of one church youth group using YouVersion mobile app that tracks usage with points. Like idea of Christian Home mobile education certificates.

At the time of establishment in 1850, it was one of the very few non-partisan newspapers around and featured relatively unbiased articles.

The Daily Dispatch continued to produce a daily (except Sunday) publication throughout the war, but with inflation, a lack of supplies, and a need for some sort of revenue, its format was altered—including more advertisements than actual news.www.logos.com
