Logos Bible Software is taking Biblical language study to the next level by releasing the SBL Greek New Testament. This brand-new copy of the Greek New Testament released by the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL) is a critically-edited edition of the text, complete with its own apparatus. Edited by Michael Holmes, well known for his translation of the Apostolic Fathers, he consulted various other Greek manuscripts during the production of this edition, leading to over 540 variations with the NA/UBS text. All the details on the SBL Greek NT are available at their website. Here’s the exciting part. The resource is available free from Logos! Simply visit here to get the free GNT and its apparatus. Mac users may experience an issue navigating the resource, but that will be fixed in the next update. In addition, the SBL GNT will be coming soon to the iPhone, iPad, and Biblia.com platforms. The SBL GNT is also available in Plain Text, XML, and PDF formats with a very freely generous license (which I imagine someone will convert it into an Accordance Module soon and send it to the WORDsearch Online Library), as well as can be purchased in print from SBL. It’ll also be available at the SBL Conference in Atlanta this November. Logos users can get […]
Sorry I’ve been away for a bit. I’ve been out sick for a couple weeks and away writing a technology brief for my company, but it’s good to get back on the blog again and submit something. I hope to offer a full review of Logos Bible Software 4 for Mac soon as well as some other interesting tidbits, but in the meantime I thought I’d post something short until I can bounce back into full time blogging. One of my professors told me to spread the word about this seminary in Duluth, GA, called the American Leadership Seminary. The website is http://americanls.org/. For those in the Duluth, GA, area looking at attending a Christian college or seminary, this one’s highly recommended from one of my professors, so it must be a fine institution. Of course for those looking in the Lithonia, GA, area, Luther Rice University is a great college as well (and they have excellent online courses, which I know from firsthand experience). And another good Bible college that I’m sure Tom would recommend is Moody. So there’s some good choices out there for those looking for solid Biblical training. If you’re in the Duluth, GA, area, check it out! Nathan Parker
Fresh off the heels of releasing Logos 4 for Mac, Logos has also released Logos 4.1 for Windows. This free update which will automatically update for most users contains a slew of bug fixes, as well as better printing support, some interface tweaks, smart tags for Microsoft Office, and Sentence Diagramming is finally back (and typing in “Import Sentence Diagrams” into the Command Bar will bring in any L3 diagrams). This article explains all the new changes. Mac users aren’t going to be left behind too long though, 4.1 will be arriving on the Mac soon, and it won’t be long before one of these days PC and Mac updates will probably come out simultaneously. Logos has been doing an amazing job on the new platform, and I’m thankful to just have it running on my Mac, even without the 4.1 goodies (remember iPad users still don’t have iOS 4 either, so it’s not uncommon for software developers to take a little longer to release updates, they’re worth the wait). So PC users, go grab Logos 4.1 today and enjoy the new updates! On a side note, Logos for Mac 4.0a has also been released. Mac users, grab the update to it to fix some bugs.
