These were at one time in the Logos stable, but I believe they were discontinued.  I seem to note that several Westminster John Knox Press books are no longer in Logos including the Interpretation commentaries.

I noticed they don't have very many books from WJK Press at all. Maybe a publisher relationship that went sour? I do sometimes wonder what goes into decisions to discontinue products. Perhaps lack of sales....?  But once the work has been done to get it into Logos format, any further sales are pure profit. So it must have something to do with the publisher not wanting it sold anymore.

Incidentally, some other items that have been discontinued which I wish I bought before they were discontinued are:

  • Columbia Encyclopedia
  • Encyclopedia of the Reformed Faith
  • Reformation Study Bible  (aka New Geneva Study Bible)

Fortunately for those who did get them, Logos doesn't do what Amazon has done to some people with Kindle books when they discontinue a product.

I did manage to get the exegetical set before it was pulled as welll as the Encyclopedia of the Reformed Faith.  As regards Amazon, I too was unhappy when I heard of the removal of a purchased book from Kindles, but I wrote to Amazon and learned that the person who offered the work didn't have the rights to the work.  The purchasers were reimbursed.

It seems, the connection to Westminster John Knox has improved - at least we have some titles available, including "Interpretation" and the updated "Daily Study Bible", and even some that are in PrePub!

So I'd like to bring up this topic once again (stumbled over it in another thread today) and hope the Logos product people and the publisher get together and reconsider this and

  • get back OT Exegesis (which is availble in electronic format elsewhere) and
  • moreover, if the Amazon anouncement of a fourth edition of NT Exegesis scheduled for September is true, put this on PrePub a.s.a.p. and give us the new version (or the old version now with an upgrade promise) 
Please!

Yes

I hope other publishers follow the example of Zondervan and Baker Academic in releasing  a lot of publications for Logos.

Yes please bring back both books, and make it available for mobile devices as well

I know this is an old thread, but it doesn't hurt to keep knocking does it? Both the Stuart and Fee books would be brilliant. Surely there is some money to be made by selling them!
