A search for Orbis on logos.com misses this book, which is published by Orbis Books:


EDIT: Also a search for nicot amos does not find the new pre-pub of the NICOT Amos volume that is shipping tomorrow.

See https://community.logos.com/forums/p/196309/1137348.aspx#1137348 for the discovery that this is broken.

Definitely a BUG. Even the links to "Orbis Books" on that PDP don't find that page.

"The saints are the true interpreters of Holy Scripture. The meaning of a given passage of the Bible becomes most intelligible in those human beings who have been totally transfixed by it and have lived it out." - Pope Benedict XVI

Note that "publisher:orbis" site:www.logos.com finds it. But expect Search on the Logos website to work. I can understand having to go to Google to search the forums, because that's third-party software. But Faithlife developed the Logos.com website, and it's relatively new, and if I can't trust it to find products I'm looking for, that doesn't bode well for sales.

Note that it's even hard for me to find this post to keep bumping it, because the following Google search does not find it. What gives?

"Orbis" "Rosie Perera" site:community.logos.com

BUMP again.

Seems to be broken on ebooks.faithlife.com too. Can't find books by publisher. For example, I stumbled upon a new book published by Broadleaf Books. I was curious what other books they've published so I searched for Broadleaf. Nada, not even the one book I'd found in the entire catalogue sorted by Recent.


So I tested further. Searched for Zondervan. It found only the few dozen Zondervan audio books, not the hundreds of ebooks published by Zondervan. I know that I can find all the Zondervan books using facets. But Broadleaf doesn't even show up in the list of Publishers for facet searching.

This used to work. Please fix it!
