I think it is about time we see The Cradle, the Cross, and the Crown: An Introduction to the New Testament in Logos, or even Vyrso format. Vyrso already offers the Old Testament counterpart, The World and the Word: An Introduction to the Old Testament, as well as the abridged edition The Lion and the Lamb

I have the print version, but it would be much more valuable here on LOGOS Yes

I totally agree. There is a version of The Cradle, the Cross and the Crown in Kindle that I might buy, however my preference would really be in Logos.

Unsure why they selected Vyrso as the outlet for this resource, but excited nonetheless. Yes

Whoa!! The quality on this is horrendous! I understand Vyrso is a largely automated production process when it comes to tagging, but this volume is horrible. Entire paragraphs with zero relevance to a passage of Scripture are tagged as a Scripture passage. Where is the quality control guys? The fact that you decided to publish an 1100+ page academic textbook as a sub-par eBook is one thing, but the quality here is simply unacceptable. Quality control is out the window... IMO, this should be produced in Logos format with proper tagging. Period.

If you provide a clip with an example, we can probably tell you why.

The feed from the publisher is automatic. Logos must scan the titles, recognize that it should be a Logos resource rather than Vyrso and pull it.

I'm unfamiliar with this resource.  How is this different than other Intro to NT books?

I think is is, but can someone confirm of the Vyrso edition is the Second Edition?

I (like Jonathan) read the first edition in print, and it has been very beneficial.

It is indeed the second edition, stating in the info pane that, "The second edition features update bibliographies and footnotes, interpretation sections that cover different literary genres in the New Testament, an epilogue that canvasses the entire storyline of Scripture, and a variety of maps.  All of these new features contribute to making this a life-long resource for students of Scripture."

I experienced the same thing John Kight with "The Bible and Homosexual Practice" by Robert A. J. Gagnon in VYRSO. It was and still is a mess; really ridiculous.

In my case, the fault lies with the "Publisher" ; and FAITHLIFE has requested updated files from the Publisher.

"The Cradle, the Cross, and the Crown: An Introduction to the New Testament" should have been a full-blown LOGOS EDITION from the beginning, just as "The Bible and Homosexual Practice" should have.

I agree. This should be an official Logos edition, not a mere Vyrso eBook.

I second the move from Vyrso to Logos.

You've got my support for all of these books being moved from Vyrso to Logos.
