There are 28 links to Richard A. Burridge's book What Are the Gospels? but it's no longer available to purchase. So is the whole chapter about Burridge's criteria useless?

Unfortunately, it looks like the rights to this book was moved to a different publisher, and we are no longer able to sell it. Richard Burridge's contributions to the field are still important for the discussion in the course, so the section where Dr. Pitts discusses his book is definitely not useless. If someone wants to dig deeper into Burridge's work, though, they will have to buy the print book.

The current, "Twenty-fifth Anniversary Edition" is published by Baylor University Press (no longer by Eerdman's), which should enable FL to be able to sell the book. However, this seems to be a new, third edition with some additional content, which would require Logos not only to license with the new publisher, but also to produce a new resource (and subsequently to update the suggested course readings).

But maybe Baylor want to sell off the dead trees before allowing electronic versions, at least there's no Kindle edition available for the moment - this seems to become a kind of publishing practice. But the paper book is from 2018, maybe they are over their self-imposed "Hardcover only" period. Or can be told that the Logos edition won't make it to shipment before this is over.

Oddly it is still listed as available in part of a collection though. See: https://www.logos.com/product/185330/eerdmans-ultimate-collection-2019

Mr. Colclough,

Thanks for catching this. Rights reverted to Baylor for this resource and we failed to catch that when making this collection. I've taken the collection down.

We don't currently have a timeline for getting the new resource on our platform. Once I hear something different, I'll update everyone in this thread.

Thanks!

Product Manager, Faithlife
