Two forthcoming books I'd really like to see in Logos. 

Walton and "a contribution" by NT Wright on The Lost World of Adam and Eve: Genesis 2-3 and the Human Origins Debate

Hofmeir, Denham, Sparks, Halton- Genesis: History, Fiction, or Neither?: Three Views on the Bible's Earliest Chapters

This is already in print, and I've found it quite useful. Reading Genesis 1-2: an Evangelical Conversation

Thanks guys! I've added these to our list of book candidates.

Ben, I received your email to suggest@faithlife.com and wanted to say a special "thanks" for taking the time to do that!

Yeah, I'd be interested. However, these books look so compelling I'm going to get all three on Kindle now, which means when and if they come out from Faithlife I won't buy them.

Brings me to this question though...

  1. I'd be interested in the percentage of sales Faithlife has missed because of Kindle/Amazon purchases - probably not trackable & 
  2. Is there another way to suggest books/resources that don't take away from applying to the Logos platform? 

Either way, and I'll speak for myself. I really don't 'care' or 'am not concerned' with where I get my books from. If I find a book I'm looking for, whether it's in a Kindle format or Logos, I'll choose Logos every time, but if Amazon/Kindle solely has it then Amazon gets my money.

There's my two cents worth which went to Amazon and not Faithlife this time.

Considering the exchange rate, I think I lost money.

mm.

I've also bought http://www.amazon.com/Four-Views-Historical-Adam-Counterpoints-ebook/dp/B00BW2U54G/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&sr=&qid= but I assume the newer books have about the same content.

When there are so many books and views about such a short passage, it means that nobody really knows what is going on. It is a bit similar as some issues in politics or sports, people love heated discussions. I have also put one speculative view to http://christiandiscourse.com/ but it is so odd nobody bothered to comment.

Looks like the third Walton volume has now been released. (I note that Logos doesn't carry any of his three Lost World books, all of which would be good additions.) 

If the newest one doesn't show up in Logos soon, I'm compelled to get it in paperback or Kindle, for a writing project with a deadline.

Bump. These still haven't been acquired.
