I noticed that http://www.mobipocket.com/ has the  HARPERCOLLINS STUDY BIBLE (OT and NT) available for sale. I bought them and it is the complete bible (in two volumes) but it's hard to navigate, mostly a hit and miss thing to get to where you want to go. I would love to have it available for logos and it would make sense to have it in Logos format as Logos already has the 1980s versions of the Harper's Bible Dictionary/Commentary.

I agree, that is a great study BIble. I wouldn't mind seeing the updated versions of the HarperCollins Bible Dictionary and Commentary, either.

Outstanding suggestion! I used the HarperCollin Study Bible in Seminary (actually, it was required). To have their notes (don't need the full text of yet another NRSV) would be a real boon

I would also suggest the New Oxford Annotated Bible...I feel positively towards both the HarperCollins and NOAB and would love to have the notes for both in Logos

I am new to Logos, but I am surprised by the relatively slim selection of reference resources that try to avoid an intentional theological/denominational slant. If Logos offered more of these "mainline" resources, I would be more satisfied, and I think Logos would appeal to more customers and come closer to its goal of providing whatever resources one needs to  study the Bible.

To start, I would like to have available in Logos:

The whole HarperCollins Bible series--Study Bible w Apoc, Dictionary, 1-vol. Commentary--has heavy involvement by SBL and wide use in "mainline" seminaries and divinity schools.

The New Oxford Annotated Bible w Apoc and 1-vol. Oxford Bible Commentary. (IMHO, their Dictionary to the Bible pales in comparison to the HarperCollins).

Lastly, the New Interpreter's Study Bible w Apoc  (The multi-volume Dictionary and Commentary series are in pre-pub; I have not viewed the 1-vol. NIDictionary or NICommentary).

(While I personally like the Cambridge Annotated Study Bible, IMHO it doesn't rank with the three Bibles listed above. I am not aware of any Cambridge Bible dictionary or 1-vol. commentary.)

 Would love them all, but Logos main focus seems to be the evangelical spectrum, likely not a big surprise since that market will spend a great deal on Bible study items. I would dare say it is a significant majority of it's users, so while many of us more mainline people make suggestions, Logos needs to look at it;s bottom line, will enough people want to buy resource x to make it worth publishing. I am very hopefully we will get NIB into publication, but unless HC or oxford commission Logos to do it I wonder about it ever happening. And while it would make sense for them, publishers often have their own agendas. Oxford has a web based subscription program to allow access to a great many of their Biblical resources, it is extremely expensive from what i remember, and of course is on going. Why get royalty from selling a digital book, when you can get rent for having them available online and no one ever owning them, forcing people to subscribe every month to have access.

Dan,

I totally understand (worked 20 years in publishing).

However, a dead end lies down the road of offering only what the majority of your current customers will buy. After time, customers in all the areas for expansion (i.e., Judiasm, scholars, Catholic, mainline) will perceive that you offer nothing for them. Once that perception is set, it takes extraordinary marketing, even rebranding, to change that perception. [Been there; learned that. Sad ]

Hapax. Thanks. But Harper is not the same as HarperCollins. See latest edition of Bible here; Dictionary here; 1-vol. Commentary here.

Well I do realize Logos is trying to expand into more mainstream things but I think they need to make a leap of faith… I mean if they had gone ahead and made the New Interpreter's Bible stuff, I am sure they would have customers who would come to them for that alone. The pre pub system works ok, but sometimes it's like offering a hamburger to vegetarians and then saying there isn't much market for hamburgers…. Logos already offers some more mainstream/catholic/jewish items and I am glad, hopefully more comes soon.

The HC SB is also available on Biblereader.

I have it on their Mac version. Hope Logos will follow publishing this SB.
