  • Suggestion: (Tonnes of Journals from Maney Online (attn: Phil Gons)

    There are a number of other journals from this publisher (Maney Online) that I'd love to see, specifically: Theology and Sexuality (48 issues) Political Theology Black Theology Journal of Adult Theological Education Would it be possible to add these to the list of "good to have" journals? Am hoping Phil Gons will see this post as I think he is keeping

    [quote user="John Goodman"] Could we get the texts of Common Worship for UK and other Anglican Churches? I noticed that they recently got released on many other ebook platforms... I'd really rather get them in logos! [/quote]

  • Suggeston: Howard Thurman - "Jesus and the Disinherited"

    Howard Thurman was an African American preacher, theologian and philosopher born on the cusp of the 20th century. He was a very well known civil rights leader, but none of his work is on Logos. I'd like to see Jesus and the Disinherited (1949) in Logos, but he has tonnes of works and I'm sure it must be of interest to some US Logos users.

  • Re: Suggestion: Genesis Commentary by Dianne Bergant, CSA

    [quote user="George Somsel"]You are correct. After I saw the recommendation based on its being by a woman I was too annoyed to continue. It shouldn't matter whether it is by a male or a female. The question is "Is it good." This is akin to the question of whether a female should be elected President. Does it really matter? Or is it more important whether

    [quote user="George Somsel"] [quote user="Rayner"] I'm surprised this isn't yet in Logos/Verbum as some other work by Dianne Bergant has made it in. Here is a taster of the Genesis commentary: http://www.litpress.org/Content/Site145/FilesSamples/146566978081468_00000050713.pdf It's from Liturgical Press, and I'd have thought would be of interest to

    [quote user="MJ. Smith"] The series was started in the 1970's to counteract the flood of youth to the East simply because they were unaware of similar traditions in the West. For many of us there are more "essential reading" books here than in other Logos collections. Unfortunately, we are not the majority. [/quote] Ooh, I didn't know the history. I

    [quote user="MJ. Smith"] They have already split the series into at least three smaller packages. [/quote] Cheers :) I'll need to do some digging.

  • Re: URGENT: we need to rush to be ready for Lent 2016

    It's a great price "per book", but the package overall contains a "useful", but not essential mixture and thus it appears somewhat expensive. It might be better if FL were to separate it into Classics of Western Spirituality Part 1 and Part 2, and halve the price for each.

  • Re: Treasure Hunt - Dear Faithlife: What about an international alternative?

    [quote user="Rosie Perera"] Every country has its own laws regarding contests and giveaways, including some very restrictive ones (the EU is known for being very restrictive), some that disallow international ones, some that disallow such things altogether. It would be impossible to abide by every single country's laws in doing something like this,

  • Re: Do you want every ebook in the world in Logos?

    [quote user="Francis"]As a Christian, I have a vested interest into how Christianity is represented to the world. When a professed Christian is found to be a swindler or perpetrator of sexual abuse, it affects me because it discredits the faith, and more importantly "causes God's name to be blasphemed among the nations". [/quote] Agree.

    [quote user="MJ.

    [quote user="Mark"]I also am not convinced.

I'd not have slightest interest in purchasing maths or physics books, but I really would like access to more academic
