I just started using Verbum Basic a few days ago. I tried to search my library for information on the lives of various saints and some of their writings and came up with zilch.

I would like to see a bundle made available that contained books on the lives of the saints and their various writings. I see from another forum topic that the complete works of St. Fracis de Sales is available in six volumes and I intend to look for them and by them since he is one of my two patron saints. But I need more. So much more!

To some extent this is already underway. The Saints resource has links to additional readings on the saint and a link to the Wikipedia article on the saint. The Factbook entry for the saint has/will have their writings. The problem is getting priority for the Saints in the Factbook team as well as expanding Saints. But Verbum/Logos has not forgotten that this is an area that needs attention. We'll have to wait and see if the reorganization of the Verbum division and the release of an Orthodox package results in more attention in this area.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
