With the expansion into the Messianic Christianity packages, some of the rest of us need more history of Semitic Christianity/Messianic Christianity to put the new group in perspective, may I suggest: (yes, I know these are more polemic than academic)

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

Thank you. I waffled around badly on Aphrahat. But then Kindle'd it. I'm probably going to get in logical trouble, but I've never signed on to Christians taking ownership of jewish history or writings. Similar to tourists here begging to go to snake dances at Hopi, but oblivious to the beliefs.

But Aphrahat sort of begs a look. I was impressed he (apparently) didn't know greek/latin. So, what you see is what you get (syriac monastic). Be good in Logos.

I agree with MJ and would definitely support those works by Dr Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg being included within the Logos platform.  His religious expression is Messianic Judaism and his writings reflect that perspective.  

Here’s a few more of his works on Amazon and so currently available in Kindle:

 The Samaritan Woman Reconsidered

 The Hidden Story of Jacob: What We Can See in Hebrew That We Cannot See in English

It would be great if works by Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg could be included in the Messianic Jewish packages or sold separately by Faithlife.  He’s well worth reading!  Keep well  Paul
