Out of the systematic theologies that can be purchased through logos, what is the most recommended for a protestant to understand the Orthodox faith?

Orthodoxy is generally less systematic than the western church, while certain father's were certainly systematic over all it was never a big thing... For early father's the EO saint John of Damascus' "the exact exposition of the orthodox faith" is pretty decent... Otherwise I'd try to get a catechism, or even St Cyril of Jerusalem's catechetical lectures!

Divinesoteriology:

There's two good options for something similar to this in Logos format right now:

Introducing Eastern Orthodox Theology (on sale in December)

Elements of Faith: An Introduction to Orthodox Theology

For both titles, I'd recommend at least a remedial understanding of Hellenistic philosophy, as they assume as much.
