I have seen some Oxford University Press books appear at pre-pub, so I ask for more. These would help understand biblical hebrew too:

Case in Semitic: Roles, Relations, and Reconstruction. Hasselbach 2013.

Semitic Languages: Features, Structures, Relations, Processes. Goldenberg 2013.

The Ugaritic Texts and the Origins of West-Semitic Literary Composition. Pardee 2012.

Two more ones i would like to see are the New Oxford Annotated Bible 4th Edition (Wordserach offers it so I am sure Logos could get it if the wanted. The Oxford Study Bible would be nice too and a great fit too since they are about to release the REB, now it is not an extremely robust study Bible (the articles are very in-depth for a study Bible though) but would love to have it in Logos.

The New Oxford Annotated Bible would be a welcome addition. After all, pretty much every college, university, and seminary requires it at some point along the line for biblical studies courses.

The Oxford title I really want to see? The New English Translation of the Septuagint. It's really surprising that Logos doesn't have this yet.

It looks like Oxford University Press books are beginning to flow into the pipeline at quite a rate. If this keeps up, there will be no more "buy everything that comes out in pre-pub" for me! I cannot afford it.

I felt after reading these reviews and looking at my hard copy again I may have made the OSB sound less important than it is. I would love to see it in Logos as I said.

The two by far most asked for OUP books must be

Others on my wish list, or that look interesting (star indicates books I've already posted on Gabe's or Ben's forums):

"The Christian way of life isn't so much an assignment to be performed, as a gift to be received."  Wilfrid Stinissen

Great suggestions fgh!  I'd be interested in having one of these books in my Logos library.

Rosie Perera:

  • Oxford English Dictionary

As great as it would be to have this in Logos, I would be equally happy if they simply integrated a link to the OED web portal within Logos, similar to the Perseus Web Lookup tool. Many of us already have access to this resource through an academic institution, and would be unlikely to purchase it all over again.

I completely forgot about the Oxford Handbooks series - The Oxford Handbook on Eschatology would be particularly welcome. It's a great volume yet rather bulky, so a digital version would be perfect.

Since the OUP is no longer PRINTING the OED, I wouldn't be surprised at all if they are entering into a whole plethora of distribution/use agreements for it's digital resource.  

I hope, nay, I pray, that Logos finds a way to get on this bandwagon.  Having the OED on Logos would just be, well, amazing beyond words.  Seriously.  

Here's hoping!  Stick out tongue

Whatever happened to the OUP? It started out so well, and then it stopped.Crying I really thought we would have seen at least

fgh:
The two by far most asked for OUP books must be

on prepub long before this, and hopefully several others as well.

I have the NETS in Olivetree and JANT in Accordance. Both are very good resources, Logos needs both as soon as they can get them even though I am not in the market for them myself.

Many of us don't have access through an academic institution.  Some of us would like the opportunity to have it in Logos, well at least Rosie and I would like to see it on Pre-pub.  Perseus Lookup tool was fine because it was available for use to anyone with an Internet connection.  A lookup tool available that only works for those with academic access is not so fine IMHO.

Maybe they could give it to us free like we got all the Perseus content free. Wink

I wanted to bump this thread because Bob said they'll be going to the London Book Fair next week to meet publishers, so now's a good time to ask for  more OUP books. (Only OUP on this thread, please!)
