David Ames,

You might want to re-read the title of the forum section, "What Adventist products do you want?" This is the section for you to list the books you would purchase from Logos if they were available.

I don't believe this is the forum section to discuss books you wouldn't buy and why you wouldn't buy them. You might want to start another section entitled "David Ames' Index Logos Prohibitorum." Perhaps Logos could even hire you to determine which books they should sell and which books they need to stop selling.

Question: If a friend asked you 'what would you like to drink?' would it be OK to answer 'I don't want anything that is alcoholic'. ?  IMHO I think negative answers count.

Lynden, Phil, David, and all,

I just started a new thread to address the general principle discussed here about whether SDA products at Logos should represent personal opinion or a "big tent" philosophy. Please contribute your opinions to that thread.

Thanks!

When i first started with logos then libronix, I got a cd about the "geoscience Research Institute: Origins Library"
I do not see that on sale anymore, even though some things still works in my logos 5

what about the "daniel and Revelation committee series" in 7volumes?

-. How to Understand the End-time Prophecies of the Bible: The Biblical-contextual Approach.  Hans K. LaRondelle

-. Understanding Scripture: An Adventist Approach by George W. Reid

-. Interpreting Scripture - Bible Questions and Answers - v. 2

there was a series of short "commentary/devotional" on the whole bible (see for example http://www.amazon.com/Bridge-Space-Island-Ken-McFarland/dp/0816306575/ref=sr_1_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1373988004&sr=1-3; or http://www.amazon.com/Let-Daniel-Speak-Arthur-Keough/dp/0828003718/ref=sr_1_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1373988124&sr=1-3&keywords=arthur+keough, or http://www.amazon.com/Prison-Papers-Captive-Ambassador-Veloso/dp/081630601X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1373988204&sr=1-1&keywords=prison+papers+veloso ) some may not find it valuable, but that is just my opinion

Edwin, the Origin series was developed by the Geo Science Research Institute. they never updated the product, and now they do will not make the Journal available for mobile use.

If you have any contacts with them, use your influence to persuade them to make the rest of the journals available in Logos, and for mobile use.

Just saw this

http://www.wallawalla.edu/nc/about-wwu/news/article/view/ellen-white-volume-to-be-published-by-oxford-university-press/

In early July Oxford University Press announced that it would publish a new biography of Ellen Gould Harmon White. In 18 chapters prepared by 20 authors Ellen Harmon White: American Prophet examines her ideas and the impact she has made on the Seventh-day Adventist church and American religion generally....

“Taken together, these chapters show how White was both a product and a producer of her age,” said Grant Wacker, professor of Christian history at Duke University, in the book’s foreword. “They also show that however one judges the role of supernatural inspiration, White ranked as one of the most gifted and influential religious leaders in American history, male or female. Ellen Harmon White: American Prophet tells her story in a new and remarkably informative way.”

Would be nice to have this book available.

Thanks David, seems interesting. I guess while it may not be by an Adventist author, it speaks about things important to Adventist. 

This raises another question: What material should be listed under the Adventist umbrella?

1. Only those written by Seventh-day Adventist

2. Material coming from our press

3. Anything about Adventist.

For products that will be listed on the Logos page and marked as Adventist, I favour the first two.

Hi Lynden

Lynden Williams:
2. Material coming from our press

I have seen "our press" referenced by you and others on several occasions but I'm aware I don't know what this actually is.Embarrassed

Is this an Adventist publishing house to which you are referring or is this something different?

Hope you can satisfy my curiousitySmile

Thanks, Graham

The Adventist Church is divided into 13 divisions. Each one has one or more printing presses. 

The list is a bit outdated, but it gives you an idea. It does not list Pacific Press or Review and Herald, (both in the United States).

I agree with your recommendation for Adventist listings for only #1 and #2.

By the way Graham, I think you are in the Trans-European Division.

Somebody knows more about it?

Edwin I am not getting any hits on the Oxford University Press website. From the WWU website, it seems as if it was just announced that they would publish, with no date as yet.

I am writing the OUP and asking them to make it available in Logos. The more people that do this, the greater the chance that we will get it.

Martin

I would like to see all the Books in the Words of the Pioneers collection (APL) in Logos. That would be #1 for me. There is a lot of material and it is on the EG White Estate CD DVD now. I am sure the organizer of that material would want to get it into Logos. Fred Bischoff I think.

Others are:

Bible Hand Book, SN Haskel

Studying Together, Mark Finley

The Cross and its Shadow, SN Haskel

And one that I saw listed earlier, The Sanctuary Service, and The Book of Hebrews, ML Andreason

The Seventh-day Adventist Church Manual, Revised and updated as needed.

Seventh-day Adventists Believe....   (AKA 28 Fundamental Beliefs)

Exodus and Advent Movement in Type and in Antitype, Taylor G. Bunch

And a long shot: Seven Mysteries Solved, Howard Peth (two Volumes) (ISBN 0-9618580-0-1 and  0-9618580-0-X

There are many more that could be found in an Adventists library of this nature.

What about the Sabbath School Quraterly? Subscription?

Good suggestions Fred. As it relates to the Sabbath School Quarterly, the best we have right now is we put it in word and compile it as a personal book. You can type your notes in it. If you are not familiar with creating Personal Books in Logos, then see the wiki article for instructions. http://wiki.logos.com/Personal_Books

I do not remember if it was suggested before, but what about the Andrews University Seminary Dissertation Series. Here is the pdf file listing all of the books coming from the University Press.
