Mark and Cynthia Thomas
- While extensive and thoroughly researched, I found the tone 'snarky' at times. After speaking with great customer service rep, Ben, I found out that the contributors come from all areas: secular, Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, etc. When he said that it made sense that the article on Ezra included scholarship that supported that no real Ezra ever existed-- without that seeming like it was a big deal. Now that I know that, when I read the "Praise for the Print Edition" above now, I see I could have found this out prior to purchasing. The quote above even mentions "feminist hermeneutics." I don't know what that is, but I am more comfortable with using other resources and am grateful for Logos letting me exchange this for something else. Cynthia Thomas
- I can appreciate being careful about theological perspectives in reference works. However, just for clarification, the "praise for the print edition" mentions the "feminist hermeneutic" as an example of contemporary, up-to-date subjects that the dictionary addresses. It's simply an entry in the dictionary for people who want to know what that is (and that older dictionaries won't have). It's like looking up arianism, an ancient heresy. They're not condoning it; just telling you what it is.
