In the spirit of the Easter season, and as an aid to believers; I recommend the excellent book by Frank Morison (Albert Henry Ross).  It is not available in Logos (that I could find), but it is freely available in various ebook formats on the web, and the original edition from 1930 is in the public domain.  Hence, you may download it, convert it to .DOCX format and create your own Logos Personal Book.  Here is a portion of the Wikipedia citation:

"He is best known today for writing the book Who Moved the Stone?, under the pseudonym Frank Morison. First published in 1930, the book analyses texts about the events related to the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. The book has been repeatedly reprinted (in 1944, 1955, 1958, 1962, 1977, 1981, 1983, 1987, 1996 and 2006). Ross was skeptical regarding the resurrection of Jesus, and set out to analyse the sources and to write a short paper entitled Jesus – the Last Phase to demonstrate the apparent myth. In compiling his notes, he came to be convinced of the truth of the resurrection, and set out his reasoning in the book Who moved the stone?. Many people have become Christian after reading the book, and some have used the work as a reference for more work on the subject." (Bold emphasis mine)

The steps that I followed were:

  1. Downloaded the epub version from the Internet Archive
  2. Converted the epub format to .DOCX format using Wondershare PDF Editor (there are many free and commercial conversion applications)
  3. I did not bother with PBB tagging as this is a monograph that I am unlikely to rely on for cross referencing
  4. Copied the cover to the clipboard, pasted it into MS Paint, and saved it as a .JPEG
  5. Opened Logos, selected Personal Books from the Tools menu, used the cover that I saved in step 4, and built the book as a monograph.

I hope this is helpful to some forum users!

Thanks. Good to get this resource in electronic form. (I have both hardback and paperback versions. Now I can give them away and save space.)

This is a book I recommend every Easter to my people.

Every blessing

I took Brother Mark's docx and tidied it up, removing the mid-sentence paragraphs, fixed cover page to show, fixed character spacing, added chapters (headers in doc).

Appreciate your work!

One additional correction: Under, "13 THE WITNESS OF THE GREAT STONE," second paragraph, second second line, "fal len" should be "fallen"
