I think this would be a great resource to add to Logos:  Character Sketches published by Institute in Basic Life Principles. I believe there are 3 volumes altogether. I remember how these books brought the Bible lessons and themes to life when my dad would read these books to me. I think these would add preachers and teachers in a searchable format.

Product overview: The very nature and character of God is seen all throughout His created universe. Job remarked, 'But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee: Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee' (Job 12:7-8). Each section of this Character Sketches volume begins with a captivating read-aloud nature story that introduces the character quality being taught and continues with interesting facts on the featured animal's characteristics and physical features. This is followed by a story from Scripture that illustrates the character quality, along with background information on the individual or situation in the story, which is then summed up in a character sketch. Generously illustrated with stunning lifelike watercolor and pencil drawings, this oversized book (9 1/4 by 12 1/4) will be treasured and enjoyed for generations. The series is designed to be a tool that fathers can use to teach their children basic concepts of Scripture that are illustrated in the world of nature. Since publication in 1976, hundreds of thousands have enjoyed the gripping stories and beautiful illustrations that the volumes contain. In Character Sketches, Volume I, you will learn about animals such as the Great Horned Owl and how it demonstrates loyalty, and the Raccoon and how it displays initiative. You will also discover from Scripture how people like Daniel showed decisiveness and Stephen exhibited determination.

Sounds suspiciously like a beastiary - and I love them.

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

Yes   That would be wonderful, especially if the beautiful artwork is included. The stunning production was first farmed out to Rand McNally. I believe subsequent printings were done in-house with no loss of quality.The textual content is excellent.

I have suggested Logos attempt to publish all of Bill Gothard's books,  publications of the Institute in Basic Life Principles (aka Institute in Basic Youth Conflicts) and the curriculum from Advanced Training Institute. I was in the ATIA program for five years and used their curriculum for homeschooling.

All of this material is recent and under copyright. I doubt we will ever see it in Logos but it would not hurt to ask.
