Skolar is indeed a beautiful font, and I agree that it makes reading English and Greek in Logos attractive, but it's rather pricey to buy for personal writing I do. While I do all my work in Unicode (which Skolar is), exporting text from Logos to MS Word means that there will be font conversion, e.g., to the SBL unicode font set or to Times New Roman. If I want to share a document and be somewhat confident that what I share will look on someone else's system like it does on mine, Times New Roman is the safe choice. While SBL Greek is very attractive and works well with the Latin characters (I use the SBL Bib Lit which has Latin, Greek, Hebrew), the SBL Greek does not go very well with Times New Roman. As for Hebrew, I agree that SBL Hebrew is also quite attractive, but it again does not pair well with Times New Roman. (The Hebrew characters are at most 3/4 the cap height of the Latin characters.) Here's where Ezra SIL you mentioned is good, since its cap height matches Times New Roman.
