HansK:

Robert Thomas, his Exegetical Commentary on Revelation is (was) in Logos.

Sadly, it was a victim of the infamous Moody dispute. I would love to see it return to Logos.

David Thomas:
Grant Osborne on Revelation is a hard resource to bea

Would he be considered historic premillennial?

Mike Measley:

For Dispensational Pre-millennialism I would agree with all who mentioned Chafer, Ryrie and Walvoord.

 Walvoord's The Prophecy Knowledge Handbook.

I would recommend Shower's There Really is a Difference, which will explain some of the distinctions between Covenant and Dispensational views succinctly.

**However, for a one volume handling of Dispensational Pre-millennialism without the full systematic theology, I personally find J. Dwight Pentecost's Things to Come second to none in handling this theological framework, and in examining the relevant scriptures. Unfortunately, it is not available in Logos, though I have suggested it, and hope that someday it will be available.

I heartily recommend the three resources above from Mike's post.  I'd also add some of Dave Hunt's works, as he is a classic Premillennial Dispensationalist and does a nice job of succinctly pointing out aspects of the belief structure in the following books, "How Close are We?", "Global Peace and the Rise of Anti-Christ", "Whatever Happened to Heaven" (which deals with some of the different views on eschatology down through the centuries), "A Woman Rides the Beast", "A Cup of Trembling", and "Judgment Day."

It would be a dream come true for me if Logos would carry at least some of Dave's books.

Scofield practically coined the dispensational perspective.  at a less scholarly, but still valuable level: Larkin for his graphic representations.

The best on Historic Pre-millenialism is George Eldon Ladd.

I have both already in my library and on the list, thanks! Scofield collection I picked up recently for 20$ from Logos. Felt like that was quite a steal.

Everett Headley:

FWIW, Ryrie's Dispensationalism is in Logos, however it was pulled when Moody pulled their works in Logos.  You may be able to find other channels to get a copy and transfer the license.  

As for Historical Premillenialism, I know Francis Shaeffer held that view, but again his works are no longer available in Logos, but see above for getting a copy.

The most prominent Historical Premillenial scholar is George Ladd, and Logos has a George Ladd collection.

Forgive my comment here, but George N. H. Peters would be a great resource to add to those already mentioned, and it is available from Logos. In three volumes, Peters in his work The Theocratic Kingdom is the most thorough scholar I've encountered in the field of Bible prophecy. Dr. Dwight Pentecost cites Peters a number of times in his great work, Things to Come. In my estimation, Ladd and some other contemporary scholars, even Tim LeHaye, might have written even better volumes than they have had they made a careful study of Peters first.

I emailed my sales person about the third option. Thanks for bringing it up.

I think I had that title on pre-pub, but it must have finished at an inopportune time.

Different prof unfortunately. But yes, had I been writing about Eschatology for him, I'd have quoted Pentecost. Still may, I have that book in my print library
