I would love to see those up for bid on community pricing! Currently, it would seem Logos is somewhat lacking in Reformed confession resources (though not referring to confession commentaries or history), by way of comparison to what is available. The Schaff three volume Creeds set is broader (including RC creeds, Lutheran, etc.) in scope and not intended to be exhaustive collection of  creeds/confessions, and their is a focus on history. The Westminster Confession, larger, and shorter Confessions available in Logos while nicely supplemented with Scripture proofs, are bare bones without supplemental history or exposition (great way to make more money).The "Three Forms of Unity" are oddly also missing in Logos (except perhaps in an issue of Tabletalk). Meanwhile The Reformed Church in the United States has an official nicely formatted and visually appealing version of The Three Forms of Unity on Amazon on kindle for .99 cents. I've also searched for volumes like "Confessions and Catechism of the Reformation" edited by Mark Noll for Logos to no avail. Looking at the list above, I had no previous knowledge of the existence of most of those Confessions/Catechisms, and I think it is helpful if not important for people to at least have a general awareness of these things.

Mr. Youngblood, I agree! However, I doubt that they could put this work on community pricing as it is. Many of the resources listed above were freshly translated or translated for the first time, so I imagine they are under a brand new copyright. Logos might could attempt something similar on their own from the existing English translations that are in the public domain. I'd be happy with either these exact books on Pre-pub or a similar type of work on CP.

I agree, Pre-Pub will most likely be the more feasible route to take and even then it would be well worth it to see these amazing confessions in Logos format.  All properly indexed with all other resources would make for one wonderful time of serious study.

Awesome but is it worth the asking price?

Evan,

I own the full set in hardback and I can most emphatically assert that is worth its weight in gold.  Moreover, having this resource in Logos format, properly indexed, would be a work of magnificent proportions.

Orrrrr Vyrso. While I don't know for certain, it seems to me that there wouldn't be much linking in these sorts of titles....

There is a massive amount of scripture. They are creeds and confessions after all.

Scripture is automatically picked up though isn't it? Unless they use mention chapter and verse, and then just verse until they reach a new chapter it should work fine IIRC.
