I just got an email that 'Sacred books of the East' are now ready to be released.

However, I wonder what benefits this collection has (tagging etc) - apart from the benefit of having the books in your Logos library.

As the collection is quite old and can be downloaded for free several places on the Internet, I wonder if I could do with the free downloads the few times I'll actually need it.

What do you think?

That's a question I have asked myself several times about this. My additional issue is whether I would actually ever read it. I hope some folks come up with some compelling answers.

Certainly this is a bit of a specialty item but it would be excellent as a reference, especially for those who teach world religion courses or are particularly interested in reading more about it.

Lew Worthington:
My additional issue is whether I would actually ever read it.

I doubt whether I would sit down and systematically read it as there are many more books that I would actually like to read that way but to me it will serve more as a reference. What I would really like would be an overview reading plan for some of the key books in this set. Is anyone aware of a resource that would help with this?

By the way, here is the link for the product - https://www.logos.com/product/16532/the-sacred-books-of-the-east

I agree this is mainly just a reference work.  The Qu'ran is available in Logos for $12 and the Bhagavadgita  in another work for $18.  Your halfway in price if you were to buy those by themselves.  This collection includes those and Vishnu, Confucianism, and many other Far East belief systems.   There is a general rise in the interest of these religions and having their primary sources is good.  Necessary? Not really, but helpful. 

FWIW, I am having a hard time biting the bullet on this one at $60 right now, especially with other sales and releases, but I think long term they could be helpful and there won't be a better price.

I took a pass.

I 'live' on the east. Specifically northern Taoism, Shinto, Confusism, and their extensions ... GO, tea ceremony, and koto. Family life swirls around each.

And so, I invest in the critical editions, the commentaries, and so forth ... just like on Logos with the Bible.  Gee, where is that Logos Japanese interlinear? (hint, hint).

If I had little interest in the east, $60 seems high. The reason is, if indeed you need one for a person you wish to chat with, you'll need a discussion book ... not just raw text. Same with a Bible vs discussion of the Bible.

I am sticking in with it, I am not sure of the quality of the translations but it does give a starting point and the ability to look up quotes to see context will be invaluable.

I'm sticking with it because it complements the Great Books of the Western World somewhat.

Dan Francis:

I am sticking in with it, I am not sure of the quality of the translations but it does give a starting point and the ability to look up quotes to see context will be invaluable. 

My thoughts also, Dan Smile

So is this what we need next?

Even given that I've read a number of the books - a 50 year reading plan is a tad optimistic given I'm 55 Wink

Review Year one!    

It will take much more then one year to read all the books listed for year one.

Also some of the Year one books can not be understood until you have completed at least your high school education.  

But it is an interesting list!  Thanks.

West or East I really could not justify buying neither set.  Plus, I'm saving my pennies for L7 this year (if it comes out).  I'm very selective with my purchases now.

Thank you, Matthew. This one looks far more useful.  Below, from vol 10:
