Humm....  I like this idea.  So just everything we've got related to the deuterocanon?  Only some resources?  If so, which ones?

Ironically I might have all the resources already. But I was thinking when I saw this maybe

Anchor bible commentaries

new collleville volumes

The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges,

Lutheran study Apocrypha 

Introducing the Apocrypha message context significance 

invitation to the Apocrypha 

Sheffield Academic Press Study guides

wise lives: orthodox reflections on the wisdom of Sirach

UBS Handbooks

This would be to me an ideal collection.

PS:I obviously meant related volumes of larger collections I mentioned, but just thought I would say it for complete clarity

Craig St. Clair (Faithlife):

My ideal version would have the relevant Bible Commentaries, particularly the Catholic and Orthodox ones (ergo the patristic ones). It makes sense, I think, to prioritize commentaries by people who consider the Deuterocanon part of the Bible. Monographs are not quite as helpful/frequently consulted, so I would be cautious about them. I put the Deuterocanon all under one heading because I'm not sure that there is enough good (and bundle/discountable) material on the Deuterocanon to divide it into a few packages.

Specific resources that I would hope would be found in it (a list that includes some I already own and non-Catholic/Orthodox ones) include:

https://www.logos.com/product/160607/old-testament-xv-apocrypha

The relevant handbooks from https://www.logos.com/product/39479/ubs-handbook-series-old-testament-and-apocrypha

https://www.logos.com/product/163080/sirach

https://www.logos.com/product/46985/wise-lives-orthodox-christian-reflections-on-the-wisdom-of-sirach

https://www.logos.com/product/32166/come-and-see-wisdom

https://www.logos.com/product/41458/the-anchor-yale-bible-the-wisdom-of-ben-sira

https://www.logos.com/product/163082/first-and-second-maccabees

https://www.logos.com/product/50215/hermeneia-2-maccabees-a-critical-commentary

https://www.logos.com/product/46979/the-rest-of-the-bible-a-guide-to-the-old-testament-of-the-early-church

Perhaps also https://www.logos.com/product/56707/ignatius-catholic-study-bible-daniel

Naturally, the absence of a book from the above list is not a vote against it, nor might the absence of one or more of the above volumes necessarily make a Deuterocanon Study Collection unattractive.

I guess. But a Catholic product seems depressing ... no offense intended. They're jewish writings fully speaking to the OT (rumored to be jewish) and most of the NT (also rumored to be mostly jewish).

I guess the depressing part (which also applies to the apostolic fathers) is the denominational fences (mainly from the evangel-side, my impression).

Ok, a deuterocanon collection.

I agree although for somewhat different reasons. It is not desirable for Faithlife to promote the misconception that the canon issue is Protestant/Catholic. It is Protestant/Septuagint-Anglican-Catholic-Eastern Orthodox-Lutheran-Oriental Orthodox-some mainstream Protestants-some Evangelical scholars ...

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

For the record, I asked in this forum because I wanted the collection to actually happen.

I specifically included non catholic resources and indeed some volumes also mentioned are done by protestants. Indeed some of the best classic volumes to include might come from the speakers commentary but that has yet to make it into proction levels to get it out of community pricing. That said the 3 Cambridge school volumes are quite well done and worth owning.
