Why is Ex Auditu no longer available?

Any chance of getting it online electronically otherwise?

I posted a few but no one is voting.

I had not seen these yet but now I have voted. I think it was good to post here to encourage others to vote as well.

Do we have any idea when the 6.1 collections will release?

Woohoo! Finally!

Why is this not in any of the Bundles?

Is the price too steep? I thought more would jump on this or has everyone already gotten access to it otherwise?

My answer to this is "yes". Perhaps if it was bundled with other journals that would lower the cost.

I think what I have understood is they will introduce new journals in this manner to get them published to cover the upfront cots involved. Then after so many years they will eventually get bundled in the packages which come at quite the discount. This balances out peopel being able to afford the bundles while FL being able to add new content. First, they will see the interest and get the required work done on them via the individual sellings and eventually after time has passed roll them into the bundles as their upfront costs in producing them are quite high. I may not have worded this correctly. Someone else might be better equipped to shed light on this. This is the gist I got.

    Why is this not a part of any bundle? Master's 6.1?

  • Feb 13, 11:19 am Phil Gons (Faithlife)

    Some journals can't be bundled.

  • Others need to be funded individually before we include them in bundles.

  • We don't collect enough revenue on new journals in the big bundles to make releasing them that way sustainable.

  • Our latest decision is that new journals will generally be released standalone and then after a period of a year or two added to the appropriate bundles.

I take it this thread is dead and the bundles shrink each quarter. Has FL decided these mechanisms just are no longer feasible and hope to move on to something else? I guess one can hope that Galaxie expands its subscription base to add the journals and, via the annual update, one can get access?

Journals may be free but FL still incurs costs in tagging them and making them available. To formally request that a journal be carried by Faithlife, you need to add it to feedback.faithlife.com and encourage enough people to vote for it to show that it would not e a loss leader.

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

Understood. If you look I have posted them in Feedbear and above in this thread as well to that extent. My point was, based on the history of this thread, I thought FL had handled it well by offering quarterly updates finally. However, the past few quarterlies have dwindled in size (when compared to past offerings) which leads me at least to think that they are scaling back the number of volumes they are choosing to go forward with and have decided to release journals in individual packages; thus, the Master Journal Bundle, now offered each quarter does not at this point include newer titles like the Journal for the Study of the Letters of Paul while at the same time being significantly smaller than what was offered in past quarterlies. In addition, older offerings I had requested in this thread apparently also have not garnered enough interest either. This leads me to believe the posts herein that said that FL is still experimenting with journals and has no concrete plans seem to have hit the mark. Therefore, as others in this thread have suggested based on the history of FL and journals it is best for one serious about them to find other means of accessing them. For those of us who do not have those ways, we can either hope FL again chooses to focus on journals which apparently is not feasible at the present time, or we hope Galaxie improves their services and offerings and that the subscription for Galaxie in Logos would as a result of Galaxie improving its own catalogs assist us in getting better journal access. Have I gotten it correct?
