I note that among others, Alister McGrath's book on reformation thought is one of the Wordsearch books being brought in. When will that (and similar books) be available to me to purchase as a Logos-but-not-Wordsearch customer?

The most specific date we've announced so far is "by the end of the year": https://blog.logos.com/2020/09/over-3000-new-reasons-to-love-logos/ 

While we now have a license for the content, it takes some time to convert it to a Logos resource, especially if it needs the tagging for a Research or Reader Edition.

Bradley, can you comment on resources not showing in your WS title list, such as Mattoon's Treasures and the Tommy Higle Journey series? I'm not seeing that in there. Mattoon has been on PrePub for the past 3 years...I'm hoping with the WS acquisition that this time will finally go into production.

Thanks.

It's been noted elsewhere that they accidentally didn't put PrePub and Community Pricing titles on the WS coming soon list. I imagine that'll be corrected within a few days.

The list was originally intended to capture only things that don't yet exist in Logos. We considered Pre-Pubs to be in the category of stuff that's sort of already in Logos in that we already have a contract, files, etc. But there's clearly a sense in which it isn't.

I suggested to the team that we expand the Wordsearch list to include the entire Wordsearch catalog, where we can indicate the status of bringing it into Logos. That will allow users to have to check only one place instead of multiple places.

Hopefully we can make that change next week.

Thanks Phil and SineNomine for your responses! Encouraging news. I thought I would never see WS unique resources in Logos.

You still won't. They won't be unique to WS anymore! Wink
