- Clark Wilson started a discussionDiscussLogos hints and tricks
The following is a duplicate of a post I did in the main discussion:
I discovered one thing. If you "hide" a resource it isn't consulted in searches, etc., etc., and it seems to be omitted from the home page. If you control-rightclick a resource in the library list, a menu pops up. One of the choices is "Hide these resources". I did it to two Protestant commentaries and was very pleased to not see them again. :-) To see a list of hidden resources (and perhaps to unhide them) go to "Program Settings". All the way at the bottom is a section "Hidden Resources". A hidden resource is as if it doesn't exist -- search will ignore it, etc.
- I'm reading "Maximus On the Cosmic Mystery of Jesus Christ" with others in a Goodreads group "Reading the Christian Fathers" https://www.logos.com/product/169302/on-the-cosmic-mystery-of-jesus-christ-selected-writings-from-st-maximus-the-confessorOn the Cosmic Mystery of Jesus Christ: Selected Writings from St Maximus the ConfessorThe last half of the twentieth century saw the establishment of the reputation of St Maximus the Confessor as the greatest of all Byzantine theologians, with a wholeness of vision that speaks directly to many of our concerns today. Until very recently, however, little of his work has been available in English translation, save for some collections of brief reflections arranged in centuries and a few brief treatises, too easily classified as “spirituality.” This volume provides translations from ...www.logos.com
- Maybe we can help each other navigate the floods of books here. Thanks to Columbcille Dougherty I learned about the suggestbooks.uservoice.com site. I think there are 80 pages of books there. And I went to the prepubs page. There are 42 pages of books there. Maybe we can point out items to look at or vote for. In the prepubs I will call attention to: https://www.logos.com/product/186529/st-vladimirs-seminary-press-orthodox-theology-collectionSt Vladimir’s Seminary Press Orthodox Theology Collection (13 vols.)Founded in 1968, St Vladimir’s Seminary Press is the largest and most active publisher of Orthodox Christian books in the English language, with more than 400 titles in print.

Combing commentaries, sermons, and ancient texts, this collection consists of classic works and new publications to enrich your study of Orthodox theology.www.logos.com
- Are the Byzantine Lectionaries no longer updated? Last date seems to be Aug 31, 2019.
- I was wondering the same thing, but today noticed that at least the Revised Julian (which I used) has been updated and now works.
Clark Wilson — EditedMy Revised Julian table of contents now goes to 2030-2031.
- Yeah, it looks like they were updated about a month after I posted that. I think they will be keeping them a bit more up to date.
- Would love to see H.E. Anthony Bloom's book, "the essence of prayer" on logos!
- Trying to get more eastern orthodox resources in Logos. Spreadsheet it editable to public if you want to add items or publishing houses. https://faithlife.com/posts/1629149Logos Bible Software - FaithlifeWhat's the best way to get Logos to get a resource listed for prepub or community pricing? I'd really like to see more Eastern Orthodox resources available and I would think it would be a good opportunity for Logos since many aren't available in Kindle (for example). Some authors I'm interested in are: Metropolitan Hierotheos of Nafpaktos, Fr. Seraphim Rose, Ft. John Romanides, Bishop Hierotheos Vlachos, Archbishop Chrysostomos, Jean-Claude Larchet, Alexis Trader, Alexandros Benetus. A number of them deal with Christian counseling, psychotherapy, and pastoral care. In particular, the understanding of the nous. I think they would benefit many across denominational lines. Fr. Rose's book on Genesis and Augustine also. Fr. Romanides would just be fun to shake things up.faithlife.com
- Has anyone figured out how to get more Orthodox material to show up on the home page in Logos/Verbum 8?

- Check the original edition; the editor has inserted this erroneous understanding of Koine Greek and Christian theology. To correct the editor's Koine Greek: what he failed to mention was that "He that believes" in the Greek is actually a Present Active Participle Masculine Singular Nominative. And to correct his theology I point to St. John Chrysostom's Homily XXXI on this verse.Beginner’s Grammar of the Greek New TestamentNotice John 3:36: “He that believes on the Son has (ἔχει) everlasting life: and he that believes not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abides (μένει) on him. The present tenses indicate the continual present states. First, the present tense ἔχει tells us that one receives eternal life when he believes, not when he gets to heaven. Second, a person who is an unbeliever is already under the wrath of God, for it presently “abides on him.”
