BAR is available elsewhere through 2016, but it stops in logos at 2005.  Is there any chance we could get more current volumes, preferably past 2016?

BAR is no longer sold in Logos that’s why there are no more updates.

Yeah, I guess I could have said re-release the previously available volumes and add new ones, but I think those at Logos know what I mean.

+1 Yes for more Biblical Archeaology Society (BAS) resources to use in Faithlife applications & apps. To me, BAR, &c. without Logos & Verbum library for search & look up lacks a lot (so have no interest in BAS stand alone stuff).

Well the letters to the editors pages always made for interesting—often entertaining—reading 😉

BAS decided to publish their own BAR back-issues product, no longer associated with Logos. Feel free to contact them and let them know you will NEVER purchase their product unless it is Logos format. I have a few times.

I sent the following message on this page:

Hello, I am writing in hopes that you will begin offering BAR through Logos Bible Software again. The linking to other sources in Logos makes BAR infinitely more valuable in their ecosystem. I have purchased BAR in paper, IOS app, Accordance, and Logos, and I love it, but I can't ever see purchasing new editions again unless they are made available through Logos. I hope you guys can come to some sort of agreement to offer these (as well as other BAS resources).
Thanks, Joe Turner
