Edwin and Lynden, Logos does have a relationship with Oxford University Press that applies to some of their publications. I asked our publisher relations department to try to get this for us. We will see if they are successful..

Fred, I've been trying unsuccessfully to contact Words of the Pioneers. I will keep at it because everything they have would be of interest to Logos. Although most of their content is in the public domain, they could perhaps make it quicker and easier for me to get into the Logos system.

Yes, the dissertation series is an excellent resource that I'm working on securing. Thanks for yet another great suggestion!

Perhaps the White Estate could help? Or maybe?

Today is Aug 3.  Started on one on the Words of the Pioneers' works on July 22 [12 day's work and am only one quarter done] and 4500 minutes of editing.  Yes, please get the Words of the Pioneers into Logos. [Other threads speak of the expense of Logos resources - take a 300 page file and prepare it as a tagged PBB with 1000 footnotes. - How much would you be willing to pay someone to do that for you? At minimum wage I have put $600 into this edit and have 75% more to do]

Good idea, David. We are discussing with the White Estate getting their entire galaxy of writings into the Logos system, obviously beginning with the re-tagged writings of EGW.

David your point is very well made. I have tagged works for my own personal use and know how long it takes me. If only the grumblers would try tagging something themselves they might not winge quite so much.  After all, no one forces us to patronize Logos!

Your dedication is amazing, David. Actually, Logos has its own system of preparing books for digitizing and tagging, under a contract in an amazingly efficient and productive arrangement. I'm not directly involved in that process. My role is to bring in new resources and then help facilitate their marketing.

Has anyone mentioned the late Dr Edward Heppinstall's 3 books  Our High Priest, Salvation Unlimited and The Man Who Is God? All pub by R & H but out of print.

Written on a relatively popular level I am not sure how they are regarded now. Any one any thoughts on these?

Not familiar with the other two, but i definitely remember interacting with "Our High Pries" would be interested in getting that one.

Lynden yesterday I just I downloaded the SDA Sabbath School Quarterly and converted it to MS Word and imported it into a Personal Book. It works great for looking up the texts and reading the Quarterly. I'll try it this week and see how I like it. So far so good. What do you use for an abbreviation for the SSQ? Something Like SSQ1306?

What about a Bible Studies Set like Seminars Unlimited, Storicles of Prophecy, or the Discovery Bible Studies set. We could then print them and share them instead of having to buy a whole set each time. Many people don't follow through to the end with a study series.

I usually name the lesson the theme for that week or quarter. Someone has already converted it, you may want to check out this faithlife group. https://faithlife.com/adult-bible-study-guide/activity

Felipe and John, thanks so much. This book was off my radar screen. But anything published by SBL from an Adventist deserves prime attention. I'll add it to my list.

Licensing is always a potential issue. I can't be specific because of delicate negotiations, but please pray with me that all the wonderful resources suggested in this forum and elsewhere can be co-licensed with the publisher for inclusion either in a base package or an add-on library bundle (for the sake of discounted resources for pastors as well as sales volume for publishers--win-win!). Logos does have excellent working relationships with publishers, and we need to see that expanded to completely cover our SDA market.

I'm working hard to be "worthy" of representing you all here at Logos. I feel the responsibility very deeply and appreciate your prayer support.
