Steve, with all due respect, I think that your complaint is unfair. Logos software is, indeed, complex and extremely powerful, but we have to bear in mind that what is offered is a library. One does not have to be fully proficient in the use of all the features of the software in order to get the good of system's content. I've been using Logos since the time it was delivered on cassettes and, admittedly, still discover features and strengths that I never tapped before. This is a testament to my slowness of wit, NOT to any fault of Logos. You've attended MP Seminars, that's a leg up on me and, probably, most other users. I wonder what your purpose was in purchasing one of the most complete of Logos' products if you had no Greek, Hebrew or Latin and, apparently, no inclination to learn anything about those languages? I believe the package that you own contains reference grammars for both Greek and Hebrew. Nevertheless, the library that you own contains a wealth of literature that requires no knowledge of the ancient languages, yet provides an education in exegesis and hermeneutics as well as very powerful and practical advice to pastors, preachers, and laypeople.
- Mr. Shea, the reason I purchased the Gold and then upgraded to Platinum was because I was led to believe that the user-interface would enable me to benefit from original language tools without the necessary language training. Few things turned out to be farther from the truth to date, sad to say.
- Steve, Logos actually sells two products that might approach a solution to your problems. They are entitled respectively: "Learn to Use Greek with Logos Bible Software" and "Learn to Use Hebrew with Logos Bible Software". Neither product presupposes any proficiency with either language, but shows you how to use Logos to research and analyze words and material in those tongues using the system. I haven't checked to see if they are still available or not, but it might be worth your time to take a look. Hang in there!
- Mr. Shea, I am sick and tired of buying, and buying and buying to obtain the promised benefits. Enough is enough. I'll stick with the English language products and keep my money for the time being. One thing I've been telling myself and trying to tell my local church is that the Word of God is for living out, not perpetual studying.
