With the launch of Emmaus Academic last year, it would be great to see Verbum reach an agreement for many (or all) of the works they are putting out. In particular, the following would be my top picks:

Letter & Spirit Journal, vols. 10-12

Lawrence Feingold's excellent volume on Fundamental Theology and his forthcoming volume on the Eucharist

Also, it would be wonderful to have all 15 years (4 vols/yr) worth of the journal Nova et Vetera made available.

Looks like the St. Paul Center beat me to the punch in creating three Verbum libraries with various resources from Emmaus Academic. While dynamic pricing appears up and running, there is no link yet to more easily view which resources are in each library on the Verbum website. Libraries level 2 and 3 include all the volumes of Letter and Spirit journal currently available (vols 1-11).

However, you can view the full list of resources for each library on the St. Paul Center website (scroll down on each):

St. Paul Center Verbum Library 1

St. Paul Center Verbum Library 2

St. Paul Center Verbum Library 3

The level 3 library includes Randall Smith's really nice volume Reading the Sermons of Thomas Aquinas: A Beginner's Guide. It would be great to see the CUA volume of Aquinas' Academic Sermons (included in the Medieval Continuation set for the Church Fathers) made individually available to pair with Smith's work.

Looking forward to the collaboration between SPC and Verbum in the future and the many great resources that will hopefully be made available via this partnership!

Thanks for sharing this information and links to the SPC Verbum Libraries.  I had not seen this before on the Verbum website, which seems a little unusual as there are Catholic Answers libraries offered in the catalog.

I am wondering how these SPC resources are being developed - solely by SPC or by Faithlife under contract with SPC. 

I would want to understand better what support these would have should there be changes in the Logos library software in regard to future updates should they be needed.

Thoughts?

What I want to do but seemingly cannot do is get a complete list of what is new to me for each of the three packages. I do not want to have to figure it all out manually(!) but Verbum.com does not seem to want to tell me and the St. Paul Center libraries do not show up on Logos.com, which is what I usually use to solve such problems.

They are on the Verbum site with dynamic pricing - but you can't see what is new to you:

This is a list of the titles that are not in Verbum libraries. Not quite what you need but a help.

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