I think that the Story of Christianity, Vols. 1 & 2 by Justo L. González would be an excellent addition to Logos.  I have read these two books in the past, and am having to read them again for a Church History course that I am currently taking.  These two books provide a very nice introduction to the history of Christianity, and even though these would come out to late to benefit me for my course, I would definitely buy them for Logos if and when they ever do come out.

EDIT:  Found out that the auto-correct kicked in to change Justo to Gusto.

Yes Yes! (It's spelled Justo, though.)

It's ridiculous that these volumes have been available in Spanish in Logos for so long yet still not in English. Vol 1 & Vol 2.

Incidentally, a search in Logos products for Gonzalez doesn't find even these Spanish volumes, because it's spelled González and the search engine on logos.com doesn't match a = á, which it should! I knew these were there but had to find them by searching for Justo.

My suggestion was for the English version, I was not aware of a Spanish version of these books, but for anyone who speaks Spanish, I would recommend that they get these books.

By the way, you can edit your post subject to fix the spelling of his name (all the better to ensure it gets correctly onto Logos's list of books people have requested) if you do it within I think it's 10 hours. Just click the More button next to your first post, and choose Edit.

Is this suggestion different from this https://vyrso.com/product/39580/a-history-of-christian-thought-in-one-volume because it says in the overview "This volume, condensed from Dr. Justo González’s popular three-volume history, is revised and updated."

Anyway, I don't expect too many immediate replies as its Christmas Eve and there far more important things to get on with!!!!

It is. The one volume seems to be condensed from the three volumes on the History of Christian Thought (two of which are in Vyrso as well, see https://vyrso.com/products/search?Author=9484%7CJusto+L.+Gonzalez&start=&sort=title ) whereas the Story of Christianity is another book.

Apparently González's history works have been suggested for quite some time to be published in Logos (example). I'll just add my voice to the rest in requesting this: it would be a great service to the English-speaking population. The originals in Spanish have been a standard among Protestants for quite some time.

 

HarperCollins released an updated (2nd) edition in 2010 of both volumes, and Amazon has them available on Kindle.
The Story of Christianity: Volume 1: The Early Church to the Dawn of the Reformation 
The Story of Christianity: Volume 2: The Reformation to the Present Day 
However, these Kindle editions leave much to be desired: no real page numbers (either in the contents or individual pages), and of course all the value-added features of a Logos work that link your resources together.
