Went ahead and bid $30, but I wonder if this collection will ever get off the ground.

I've just started reading the book of Tobit for the first time (never really dipped into the Apocrypha at all) so I'm a long way away from really wanting to dabble in Mormon writings. I'm really enjoying Tobit, BTW. Great story!

Did you enjoy the part about the bird poop?  Stick out tongue

You bid more than I since I bid $20.  I don't see that anything has made a dent (perhaps I should say "bulge") in the line.

Rosie Perera:

This one is supposedly worth nearly $1700, for a CP price of 98% off retail value. I wonder if that's a record?

Even so, I'd probably only pay $10-15 for it because the only books I'm even marginally interested in seeing are the top three: The Book of Mormon (one edition is sufficient), Pearl of Great Price, and Doctrine & Covenants. I've just started reading the book of Tobit for the first time (never really dipped into the Apocrypha at all) so I'm a long way away from really wanting to dabble in Mormon writings.

Then you'll probably like Sam Torode's novel, The Dirty Parts of the Bible: http://indiereader.com/2011/04/the-pains-of-being-pure-at-art/

‘Dirty Parts’ is largely based on the Book of Tobit and the story of Tobias and Sarah, and you also reference your grandparents’ marriage in the Author’s Note. What was it about both their stories that captured your narrative imagination?

I think the Book of Tobit is one of the unknown gems of world literature. It’s a bizarre and delightful love story, which is part of the Apocrypha in Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Bibles, but the Protestants threw it out five hundred years ago. I wanted to write something based on that story, and then I also wanted to write something about my grandparents’ stories of growing up in Texas during the ’20s and ’30s. Then, I realized I could combine the two ideas into one book. So I decided to do with the Book of Tobit what ”O Brother Where Art Thou?” did with the Odyssey—re-imagine it in this new setting.

http://www.amazon.com/Dirty-Parts-Bible-Novel/dp/1450567630/ - only $2.99 in Kindle.

Bohuslav Wojnar:

Joshua G:

I do not know how I feel about this. I wish Logos had a feature where we could build separate libraries. This would be ideal for maintaining the Perseus collection and for books from different religions (Islam, Mormon, JW, etc.). Thankfully Logos is not promoting this as a "Christian" resource.

Good suggestion Joshua. Yes

I would also buy the Mormon collection only if I have a clear way to keep my regular library separate. I use Collections, but some way to see the different Libraries/Collections in the Library window itself would be great.

One option is using two Logos 4 installations:

  1. Allow collection to download to original Logos 4 installation
  2. Copy collection resource files to a different folder.  May need to open resource to look at information for resource file name.
  3. Create another user account (perhaps in a virtual machine)
  4. Install Logos  4
  5. Turn off automatic downloads (Windows: uncheck during installation; Mac: cancel download, then change program setting to automatic downloads to No)
  6. Scan different folder path to collection resources
  7. Restart Logos 4
  8. Verify new Logos 4 installation has collection in library
  9. Hide collection resources in original Logos 4 installation, see =>  Tip: How to hide up to 10 resources at once
  10. Restart original Logos 4 to delete collection resources

Since automatic downloads are turned off in collection specific Logos 4, recommend manually updating Logos 4 program (as desired); also have option to turn off internet in collection specific Logos 4.

If want to keep collection in primary Logos 4, one idea is tagging collection so can click on "i" in an open resource to look at tag.

It is really not unrealistic to pay high prices for early editions of Mormon publications. The LDS church has an active program of purchasing early manuscripts and books. They say it is for historical purposes but others claim it is to cover up the many changes in the doctrines.. Whatever the goal of the program, the end result s very high prices for the old works. If Logos had to purchase paper copies of the whole collection I can see how it would easily reach $1700.

Joshua - 

I have created a User Voice item for an Archive/Hide feature change which would perhaps help to accomplish what you are asking for.
