vyrso is the "the trade book" store Faithlife runs. Generally speaking, Vyrso editions are the kinds of books you would find at your local "Christian" bookstore, whereas logos books are "academic". There is some overlap in kinds of books. You should also know that Vyrso books are "bare bones" whereas logos editions are "value added."

This is a great deal, but I thought theology titles like this one are normally in the Logos (not Vyrso) format?

Yeah I expect something based on Calvinism to be on Logos not Vyrso. Vyrso doesn't seem like a place where you would find Theology based books vs Logos.

The most surprising one I have found so far in Vyrso format that I would have expected to be in Logos is Brueggemann's A Theological Introduction to the Old Testament.

Which is wrong. If you look at the offering, Vyrso may be compared to a Christian Bookstore (well, the books part of it, mugs und clothing still sell at logos;-) which will have various genres of Fiction, Children's books, Self-Help, Christian Living... but also some theological books.

But that's not all of the story. There are publishers that don't come together with Logos regarding contracts for Logos editions (where Faithlife puts in some editiorial work and therefore expects a share of the revenue). Moody is the most obvious example. Abingdon seems to travel the same route (with exception of the NIB and NIBD), which gives great works which are just not available on Logos.com but will be found on Vyrso.

Other publishers may licence only a subset of their offering to Logos - but if they are producing ebooks anyway, they probably don't mind which platform their books are sold on whereas for us it's helpful to have those in the Logos environment, even though in a non-Logos quality. So we will find some decent books among the >600 sorted into Theology or the >400 in Biblical Studies or >150 in Sections of the Bible

It's long overdue that a search on logos.com (e.g. for author:brueggemann or author:neusner) gives the information "additional results are found at vyrso.com".

Ah, that explains the work I referenced, as it is from Abingdon.

Yes I looked for the Brueggemann Theology for a long time before I realized it was already available on Vyrso.

For those interested in Edwin Palmer I got this from the BOT website

Edwin H. Palmer


Edwin H. Palmer (1922-80) was born, grew up and went to school in Quincy, Massachusetts. He graduated from Harvard College (A.B.) in 1944, following which he served as first lieutenant in the U.S. Marine Corps 1944-1946, service which included operations in the Pacific theatre and involvement in the fighting around Okinawa.

In 1949 he received his Th.B. degree from Westminster Theological Seminary and furthered his education at The Free University of Amsterdam, receiving his doctorate (Th.D.) there in 1953. His accomplishments and contributions were so respected by the Christian academic community that, in 1977, Houghton College conferred on him the honorary degree of Doctor of Divinity.

Palmer was a pastor, educator, author, and a concerned citizen. He pastored three Christian Reformed Churches in Michigan: Spring Lake (1953-1957), Ann Arbor (1957-1960), and Grandville Avenue, Grand Rapids (1964-1968). He was Instructor in Systematic Theology at Westminster Theological Seminary (1960-1964). He wrote numerous articles and pamphlets and two books, The Five Points of Calvinism (1972) and The Person and Ministry of the Holy Spirit: The Traditional Calvinist Perspective, the latter of which is published in Spanish by the Trust (El Espiritu Santo).

Besides his being a frequent conference and convention speaker, Palmer served as National Chairman of the Board of Citizens for Educational Freedom (1964-1968) and chairman of the New Jersey Right-to-Life Committee (1969-1972). He served as Executive Secretary for the Committee on Bible Translation for the NIV from 1968 until his death. In 1979 he was appointed General Editor of the proposed NIV Study Bible. He was unshakably committed to his part in seeing that the body of Christ had the best translation of Scriptures available, by which the reader could know the Word of God with complete confidence and in his own idiom.

Palmer died from a heart attack in September 1980.

I check Vyrso for things all the time... but it would have never crossed my mind to check for that.

This is really a fine book. With you, I wonder why it isn't available in Logos.

Thank you everyone who assured me that the Vyrso product will work in my desktop Logos 6 application. I just ordered and received it. I'm hoping it will lead to some good "proof texts" for my index for TULIP.
