I got it. It's not something I've ordered. I'm assuming its part of the Logos Now preview for the month?

Whow, that would be a huge benefit for LN, even if it's only for a month.

It shows as temporary in my library, and its webpage shows that it is a part of Logos Now. https://www.logos.com/product/16532/the-sacred-books-of-the-east#030

That explains why it downloaded for me this morning.

Am a LN member.

Thanks

I'm hoping people don't miss it with all the other books that downloaded, but it looks like we also get Modern Christian Theology this month. I'm only a little ways in, but so far it looks like a very readable approach to a challenging subject.

These are some old books. Does anyone know if these would have been some of the books that the early believers in Ephesus burned in Acts 19:19? 

I notice that in the index book it lists this:

I. Vedic-Brâhmanic Religion.

(a) Prayers and Hymns, vols. 32, 42, 46.

(b) Magic, Rites, and Theology, vols. 12, 26, 29, 30, 41, 42, 43, 44.

 Müller, F. M., & Winternitz, M. (Eds.). (1910). A General Index to the Names and Subject-matter of the Sacred Books of the East (p. xv). Oxford: Clarendon Press.

Also related to this, if these books were burned by the early church, should I be keeping them on my computer? Any thoughts regarding this?

Very very unlikely as the chances of anyone in ancient Ephesus knowing the language they were originally written in (Sanskrit) is minuscule.

However, as Indo-European languages, your knowledge of Sanskrit will help your Greek and Latin (and vice versa). Stick out tongue

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
