There is a non-Logos program which I own which is designed for the average Catholic - very limited capabilities i.e. essentially a read, search, export capability. However, I thought some Logos users might be interested to see the resource list if only to see what sort of resources a Catholic would go to for apologetics. I may follow up with a list of resources offered with the free Vatican software that has priests as its primary target.

One could correctly label these lists my Logos shopping list. If anyone knows of similar resource lists for the Orthodox, I would really appreciate knowing of them.

That list looks seriously incredible, even as a non-Catholic I'd like to get my hands on a number of those.

 Hmm.  Too fragmented, but I have seen a few. I'll see if I can find them again.

The Master's Seminary has one... 

50 BOOKS FOR EVERY CHRISTIAN http://www.tms.edu/LibraryBooklist.aspx

Then there's their original 850 book list:  http://www.tms.edu/pdf/850Books.pdf

I have noted a few other seminaries with similar list and at one point set out to compare and contrast them with Logos' evolving offerings but haven't completed that project.

Thank you for the links - and I'd love to see your comparison, it's a very worthwhile project.

MJ. Smith:
One could correctly label these lists my Logos shopping list.

These are some seriously great lists! I'd buy almost anything on them that we haven't already got.

MJ. Smith:
If anyone knows of similar resource lists for the Orthodox, I would really appreciate knowing of them.

The Master's Seminary has one... 

50 BOOKS FOR EVERY CHRISTIAN http://www.tms.edu/LibraryBooklist.aspx 

That was probably by far the least Orthodox list I've ever seen... And it most definitely wasn't for every Christian. But, then again, what can you expect from a man who considers Catholics (and Orthodox, I would assume) to be satanists rather than Christians...

I dug around and finally found a short list of recommended reading at the bottom of this page (and the beginning of the faq will give you a good laugh!). Also the General Information section here has a short book list at the end of each subpage, and lots of links to online stuff above. The other subsections have links as well, but less often book suggestions (though many of the links of course come from books). (Don't miss the Orthodoxy and Western Christianity section, where you can find pearls like Why I Abandoned Papism. Big Smile )

Here's a link page that may interest you as well, if you want to continue digging.

Thanks for the links - I find them a bit disappointing in the sense that they emphasis who they are not rather than the positive Orthodox tradition. If I were to build a list it would start with

  • Patristics (patristics, patristics)
  • Desert fathers
  • Philokalia
  • St. Gregory Palamas
  • Bible commentary from Ochrid
  • St. Ephrem the Syrian
  • Romulus the Melodian
  • The Way of the Pilgrim

but I fear that I quickly peter off into contemporary English writings ... knowing full well there is a rich history of writings that I am missing

I think Thomas must have been thinking of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church!

Actually I completely missed the word orthodox in MJ's initial post and just read in a general search for book lists, which triggered my memory on seeing this one.

Sorry for my confusion - I seem to be experiencing a lot of that these days.  

Next time I shall read twice before posting a response.  Zip it!

That list looks seriously incredible, even as a non-Catholic I'd like to get my hands on a number of those.

I purchased this software from the other company because I thought it would take forever for it to get published in Logos.  While it is not near the user interface that Logos is, it is better than nothing. I do hope Logos keeps the Pre-Pub machine humming.
