What about an Eastern Orthodox package (similar to Verbum)?

I'm not sure if the demand for an Eastern Orthodox package is there, but I might be interested in Eastern Orthodox resources. What sort of Eastern Orthodox resources did you have in mind?

I would like the Patriarchal Orthodox Greek Text in Logos, for one.

I think its too early in the cycle for an Orthodox (Byzantine) package to be under consideration. If the partnership with St. Vladimir's goes smoothly (first product under development), then some of the other Orthodox Presses might be inclined to partner with Logos as well. Add the completion of the 2 or 3 Bibles currently being translated and the basis for such a package would be in place.

PATr needs to be in Logos, hands down. It's the authoritative Greek New Testament for Byzantine Christians, and the electronic edition is already tagged with morphology and available on Kindle but needs to be in Logos so I can use it with my other resources.

Many Patristic resources are already in Logos but could be bundled into this package. I suspect more will rapidly be translated and become available as more and more Protestants seem to be taking an interest in the Fathers (and will thus create a market for them). The Chrysostom bible commentary series from OCABS would be an essential (in fact lots from OCABS would be good). Getting the IVP ACCS commentary to become available again would also be good (I know it can be bought from IVP separately, but not through the Logos store).

The popular Patristics series from SVS will be good (I believe I pre-ordered it). Also many would probably want the OSB (but I could take it or leave it). Some additional resources that would be essential are:

 

  • The Philokalia (numerous volumes and translations)
  • Schmemann books (Great Lent, For the Life of the World, etc.)
  • Jaroslav Pelikan's 5-volume book on the historical development of doctrine
  • Pelikan's book on the Christian encounter with Hellenism
  • Mystical Theology by Lossky
  • Lectionaries, prayer books (Horologion), Divine Liturgy resources (Heavenly Banquet by Hatzidakis)
  • Works by Zizioulas
  • Canons (tons here)
  • Dogmatic books by various theologians (Nafpaktos, Staniloae, Pomazansky, etc.)
  • Works by Kalamiros, Romanides, Florovsky, Kallistos Ware, McGuckin, Bulgakov, Meyendorff, DB Hart, etc.
  • Works involving dialogue between Orthodox and other groups (Augustana Graeca, etc.)

This would be a substantial Eastern Orthodox library.

For those of you who haven't yet found out, there is now an Orthodox suggestion at Logos' new Uservoice site for prepubs: Add more Orthodox works, and also one for Patristics: Add more Patristic works. Please go add your votes. And then add the remainder of your votes to other suggestions -- preferably mine.Big Smile

(There is also a new Uservoice site for CP's, with another ten new votes for you to spend: http://communitypricing.uservoice.com/forums/183260-general/filters/top.)

Logos has now hired a product manager for Orthodox (and Lutheran and Reformed) resources, Gabe Martini:

So look forward to the above and more needs being addressed in the hopefully near future.

It is true! I'm a multi-tasker.

A standalone Orthodox product would be interesting. Right now, my focus is to get as many Orthodox resources as possible. With your support (in CP and Pre-Pub), the sky's the limit!

Milford, I saw it in his forum profile, but it has not been mentioned in the forums per se (except his confirmation above that he's a multi-tasker).

For those interested in works on the canons (some of you mentioned this above), we have added The Rudder as a two volume collection (in both Greek and English) to Community Pricing.

Sure thing! Keep your eyes peeled for more Orthodox works on both CP and Pre-Pub in the future.

Not only does that link not seem to work but I get the message that Logos doesn't sell this. I'm not sure what is going on.

Apologies for any confusion. This went up before all rights research had been complete. We are working to resolve this and I'll keep you posted.

Thanks for the clarification Gabe. Perhaps you are trying to whet our appetites.

It took two years from the manager being hired till Verbum came out. Shall we give the new added managers equal time?
