A lot of good suggestions here. Is Logos interested in these requests? Do they want our input? Is there a way they could have user generated product requests like pre-pubs that "gather interest"? There are so many good books unavailable in Logos.

Did anyone suggest Graeme  Goldsworthy's books?

Some that would have relatively wide appeal...

Bauckham's Jesus and the Eyewitnesses

Kaesemann's Romans

Barth's Romans

They are if you mail them to suggest@logos.com and/or post them in the Suggestions forum. Whether the right people see something that's wished for in the General forum is considerably more doubtful.

This post & another today (about the One Year Bible) have me wondering if these type of resources can be version independent in Logos and allow users to choose from any Bible versions they have in their library to display references from that particular version. Or would that be a sticky copyright issue?

 

Logos 7 Collectors Edition

I have a question which kinda goes with this topic. I'm trying to rationalize purchasing a LOGOS 5 plan, and i don't want to just purchase a whole bunch of material which will either go unread, or keep me from viewing the resources which I am most interested in. I'm loving the idea of the timeline, so at this point i'm looking at either a Gold plan or a Platinum plan. The thing is, i've been researching Apologetics and Patristics with a friend, and am seriously considering purchasing these three sets from Amazon.com; (or have been for over 2 years) - but am closer to pulling the trigger. In everything else, I have switched from purchasing books in print, and have moved to either Kindle, iBooks, Zinio, Kno, or  iTunes-U. I have a Macbook, & an iPad2 to work with.  I've also downloaded Olive Tree, Bible.com's App, and a number of other "free" App versions of Bible study or Scripture diving  - but have not picked one as a solid winner to start investing in a large library with. in fact, all the books i've purchased in iOS have either been free in app purchases, or less than $2.99.

What i'm looking to purchase in digital format are these books from Amazon (however Amazon doesn't offer this in digital format): 

  • Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers: First Series, 14 Volumes $419.00
    Series I of the Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers consists of eight volumes of the writings of St. Augustine, the greatest and most influential of the early Church Fathers, and six volumes of the treatises and homilies of St. Chrysostom. The series is edited by the eminent church historian Philip Schaff (1819-1893), professor at Union Theological Seminary, New York.

    Volume Titles:
    Volume 1: Augustine: Prolegomena, Confessions, Letters
    Volume 2: Augustine: City of God, Christian Doctrine
    Volume 3: Augustine: On the Holy Trinity, Doctrinal Treatises, Moral Treatises
    Volume 4: Augustine: Anti-Manichaean, Anti-Donatist Writings
    Volume 5: Augustine: Anti-Pelagian Writings
    Volume 6: Augustine: Sermon on the Mount, Harmony of the Gospels, Homilies on the Gospels
    Volume 7: Augustine: Gospel of John, First Epistle of John, Soliliques
    Volume 8: Augustine: Expositions on the Psalms
    Volume 9: Chrysostom: On the Priesthood, Ascetic Treatises, Select Homilies and Letters, Homilies on the Statues
    Volume 10: Chrysostom: Homilies on the Gospel of St. Matthew
    Volume 11: Chrysostom: Homilies of the Acts of the Apostles and the Epistle to the Romans
    Volume 12: Chrysostom: Homilies on Corinthians, 1st and 2nd
    Volume 13: Chrysostom: Homilies on Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, Thessalonians, Timothy, Titus, and Philemon

    Volume 14: Chrysostom: Homilies on the Gospel of John, Hebrews 
     
  • The Ante-Nicene Fathers (10 Volume Set) $299.00
    The Ante-Nicene Fathers ranges from the Apostolic Fathers to various third and fourth century sources including the liturgies and ancient Syriac documents. It was intended to comprise translations into English of all the extant works of the Fathers (with the exception of the more bulky works of Origen) down to the date of the first General Council held at Nicaea in 325 A.D. This American edition by Arthur Cleveland Coxe is a revision of the original series edited by Alexander Roberts and Sir James Donaldson and published in Edinburgh. The revision involves a major rearrangement to conform to the historical sequence, the addition of brief introductions and notes indicating variances in readings, specifying references to scripture or literature, clarifying obscure passages, and noting corruptions or distortions of patristic testimony (as forged in the Decretals). The basic aim of the translations has been to strive for literary exactness, placing the English reader as nearly as possible on an equal footing with those who are able to read the original.

    Volume Titles:
    Volume 1: Apostolic Fathers, Justin Martyr, Inrenaeus
    Volume 2: Hermas, Tatian, Athenagoras, Theophilus, Clement of Alexandria
    Volume 3: Tertullian
    Volume 4: Tertullian (IV), Minucius Felix, Commodian, Origen
    Volume 5: Hippolytus, Cyprian, Caius, Novatian, Appendix
    Volume 6: Gregory Thaumaturgus, Dionysius the Great, Julius Africanus, Anatolius and Minor Writers, Methodius, Arnobius
    Volume 7: Lactantius, Venantius, Asterius, Victorinus, Dionysius, Apostolic Teaching and Constitutions, Homily, and Liturgies
    Volume 8: Twelve Patriarchs, Excerpts and Epistles, The Clementina, Aprocryphal Gospels and Acts, Syriac Documents
    Volume 9: Gospel of Peter, Diatessaron, Testament of Abraham, Epistles of Clement, Origen and Miscellaneous Works

    Volume 10: Bibliography, General Index, Annotated Index of Authors and Works
     
  • Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers: Second Series, 14 Volumes $267.29
    The Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers: Second Series contains in fourteen volumes the works of the Greek Fathers from Eusebius to John of Damascus and the Latin Fathers from Hilary to Gregory the Great. Several of the writings appear for the first time in English. The first three volumes are a complete collection of the historical writings of the Fathers, whose permanent value as the primary sources is universally acknowledged. Other volumes contain the works of eminent figures in early Christian history, such as Athanasius, Jerome, and Ambrose. The series concludes with the canons and decrees of the seven ecumenical councils, as well as canons of local synod with ecumenical acceptance. The Second Series is edited by Philip Schaff, eminent church historian and professor at Union Theological Seminary, NY, and Henry Wace, Principal of Kings College, London.

    Volume Titles:
    Volume 1: Eusebius: Church History, Life of Constantine the Great, Oration in Praise of Constantine
    Volume 2: Socrates, Sozomenus: Church Histories
    Volume 3: Theodoret, Jerome, Gennadius, Rufinus: Historical Writings
    Volume 4: Anthanasius: Selects Works and Letters
    Volume 5: Gregory of Nyssa: Dogmatic Treatises, etc.
    Volume 6: Jerome: Letters and Select Works
    Volume 7: Cyril of Jerusalem, Gregory Nazianzen
    Volume 8: Basil: Letters and Select Works
    Volume 9: Hilary of Poitiers, John of Damascus
    Volume 10: Ambrose: Select Works and Letters
    Volume 11: Sulpitius Severus, Vincent of Lerins, John Cassian
    Volume 12: Leo the Great, Gregory the Great
    Volume 13: Gregory the Great, Ephraim Syrus, Aphrahat

    Volume 14: The Seven Ecumenical Councils

     

I guess what i'm asking, is are these covered in any one Plan of Logos 5? Am i being too overzealous in my quest for study. I'm looking at the plans and all I see from the list is a reference to Early Christian Fathers. I wonder to what degree these early Christian works are made available in Logos 5. I hear many people say that Logos 5 is worth every penny, and that spurs on my smile, and thought that if i make an investment in scripture, i can't go wrong, unless i just don't read. while I hear others look at me like i'm trying to purchase every language that Rosetta Stone offers. Should i just stick with the next language i'm looking to learn (eg: purchase a lighter plan and just start to fall in love with LOGOS gradually?) or is it better - given that the search factors in the specific questions you are looking for - to just dive into the faith and absorb as much as i can before i come up for air?

Stephen,

welcome to the Logos user forums.

The resources you mention are part of the ECF collection available in a protestant and a catholic edition:

you'll see to the right of the screen the L5 packages where each of the two are contained. The Amazon Hardcover prices are ridiculous, given the fact that the Logos versions are searchable, linked and linkable etc.

Hope this helps,

Mick

The sets you mention above are what Logos calls "Early Church Fathers".  For some more information about the Logos version, please see the product page at http://www.logos.com/product/5771/early-church-fathers-protestant-edition They are included in Silver and up collections.

As far as picking a package?  The higher level packages are expensive, but they do include a lot of resources - including a lot of standard reference works that to purchase in any format would be expensive.  You know what you can afford financially.  In general, Logos tries to make the bigger packages into bigger deals, but how "good" those deals are is dependent on what you are interested in.

Mick, 

Thank you very much - this answers my question, and i appreciate it greatly. Big Smile

I hadn't seen that the Early Church Fathers came in two different sets: Protestant Edition & Catholic Edition. What's more is there is a link that shows me the authors in the sets. I love it! Thank you thank you thank you. PS: Thank you LOGOS 5. I think this just helped me make my decision. One last  question - is all this content accessed via online search database through LOGOS 5, or is actually downloaded to the device itself?

If You want the Catholic Edition, one option is to buy a minimum base-package at http://www.logos.com/verbum that contains it - if You want the additional books/Bibles.

Stephen Ornelas:

With very few exceptions all content is downloaded to Your internal drive (Logos 5 can't be installed on an external drive) and then indexed. After that You don't need an internet connection, You access Your books from the drive. For faster search response an SSD might be a good investment.
The only exceptions are the Faithlife Community that's on the internet and a few items that come on a CD or DVD, such as Catholic Practicum: Learn to Use Logos Bible Software, Biblical Archaeology Review collection (up to 2005, not sold anymore on the logos site, can perhaps be purchased second-hand), The Essential IVP Reference Collection Version 3 (if purchased second-hand (cheaper), Learn to Do Word Studies with Logos Bible SoftwareLearn to Use Biblical Greek and Hebrew with Logos Bible Software, Introducing New Testament Discourse Grammar: Video Series, but all those can be copied to the HDD or SSD, as I've understood it an external one will function.

The unabridged Hebrew-Aramaic Lexicon!!!

I believe he was referring to : http://cal1.cn.huc.edu/

I would also like to see this, along with:

1. New English Translation of the Septuagint (NETS)

2. More patristics in Greek

3. Lampe's Patristic Greek Lexicon
