Between here and here I count a dozen different CUA collections priced between $89.95 and $219.95 USD that share one very important and equally unfortunate quality: they're all stuck in Pre-Pub. Not one of them is half way there yet; most are far from it. 

These collections include important works by such theologians and philosophers as Lawrence Dewan, Christopher Kaczor, Mathew Levering, Ralph McInerny, Joseph Owens, Nicholas Rescher, Martin Rhonheimer, Jean-Pierre Torrell, James Weisheipl, and John Wippel. Particularly notable contributors to essay collections include William Alston and Thomas Langan, plus others who contributed to (the many) collections lacking lists of contributing authors on their product pages.

There's plenty of important works, some of them classics and even commonly assigned undergraduate textbooks. They should be saleable.

Now that Faithlife has started listing books individually on Pre-Pub that are also in bundled form, perhaps these collections deserve some more attention.

And now there is only one collection, not because the rest have since been produced, but because they were all purged.

Now Faithlife has a great opportunity to re-offer at least many of these works individually and/or in smaller, much more focused collections. If Faithlife does this, a good percentage of these works will end up being produced, some likely quite quickly.

Please do not squander this opportunity.

I'm grateful for what is left, but this is definitely a bummer.  Great resources gone. Sad
