Book Suggestions

In order to properly utilize these suggestions, we need all the following information (all of which can usually be found on Amazon.com or on the publisher’s website):

1. Individual or series title. E.g. “The Fellowship of the Ring” for a single title, or “The Lord of the Rings” for the series title (one book or series per entry, please. If there are multiple books by various authors in one entry, we cannot properly track votes and the entry will be deleted)
2. The author(s)
3. The current publisher. E.g. “Baker” or “Hendrickson”.
4. The copyright/publication date
5. The ISBN (this is included on most Amazon.com book pages under “Product Details”)

  1. NET Bible 2.1 (Thomas Nelson)

    The NET Bible has undergone another update (2.1) and has a new publisher (Thomas Nelson). According to netbible.com/faq/, a primary area of updates is bringing the text-critical notes up to date with NA28. We need this in Logos ASAP. Also, NET Bible 2.0 included Strong's tagging. This should enable the creation of an interlinear and other related datasets easier.

    If you are interested in understanding the Bible, presumably you are also interested in knowing how the Early Christians understood its texts and the faith taught by the Apostles.
