Gabe Martini:

Clayton,

I know this is a few months late, but I wanted to let you know that Logos has brought me on board for just this purpose (Announcement on my blog: http://onbehalfofall.org/2013/03/25/a-personal-announcement/).

I am relocating to the Bellingham area soon, and will be very focused on dramatically expanding the selection of Orthodox books and resources for the Logos ecosystem. Please stay tuned, and follow both Logos and my personal blog (www.onbehalfofall.org) for updates! Please feel free to contact me with any specific requests or ideas you might have. My ears are open.

Have a blessed Great Lent.

In peace,

Gabe

Welcome Gabe!

And, I look forward to seeing what you'll have to offer us.

MJ. Smith:
Whereupon, the best known Oriental Orthodox Church - the Copts - have somehow migrated from Africa to the Orient?Huh?

Wikipedia (my bold):

In European historiography the meaning of "the Orient" changed in scope several times. Originally the term referred to Egypt, the Levant, and adjoining areas.[2] Later the term became synonymous with Islam and Judaism and its scope expanded both eastward and westward to include all non-European areas of Eurasian civilization, including North Africa as far west as Morocco.[2] During the 1800s India, and to a lesser extent China, began to displace the Levant as the primary subject of Orientalist research. By the mid-20th century Western scholars generally considered "the Orient" as just East AsiaSoutheast Asia, and eastern Central Asia.[2] As recently as the early 20th century the term "Orient" continued to often used in ways that included North Africa and even parts of southeastern Europe. Today the term primarily evokes images of ChinaKoreaJapanVietnam, and peninsular Southeast Asia.[2] Throughout the history of the changing sense of the term, "the Orient" was never equivalent to Asia as a whole. "The Orient" being largely a cultural term, large parts of Asia—Siberia most notably—were excluded from the scholarly notion of "the Orient".[2]

Welcome indeed! I had assumed it would take another year or two before Logos hired someone for the Orthodox market. I thought they would expand the Jewish one first. 

I'll write more later. Right now I have to prepare for Mass.

I promise that our expectations are so high you have no chance of matching them - which is a very good thing for my bank account. Just make sure your priorities are Orthodox, Orthodox, Orthodox, Lutheran, Lutheran, Reformed. Wink

Gabe,

Welcome! This is very exciting! 

I'm hopeful that there will be resources available soon to make for easy study in this area. While I have already purchased several resources, I am hoping to do my M.A. thesis on hesychasm, and would absolutely love to have access to relevant Orthodox works. 

I pray that your work will be enjoyable and fruitful!

Welcome, Gabe! This is great news.

Do a Google search for orthodox site:community.logos.com and page through the results to find several other threads where people requested specific Orthodox resources. Here are a few key ones right off the bat:
