Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but  this was inadvertently turned to live as a part of another Logos project.

Verbum still doesn't have the rights to produce this, but we are going to revisit the rights situation with both the German publisher (Herder) and a newer U.S. publisher (Baronius) to see if we can get this licensed.

Upon further review and discussion on the product team, this text can be made available for sale.

Whenever there is a doubt about the rights of a given title, we will always pull it from Verbum.com until we can get clarity.  I'm just happy to report that we got clarity on this title MUCH more quickly than we usually do.

I too will be downloading this title today....

Very sensible--with excellent results in this case.

Why is Fundamentals of Catholic Dogma gone again?

We learned more recently--and definitively--that the book has a new copyright holder.  We are attempting to work with them to license the book. 

In the meantime, we had to take the book down (again).

I'll update this thread with any progress on getting the book back into Verbum.

Rats. I was going to use my new-Logos-website promo code on this (and maybe other stuff too). Oh well. I hope you get it licensed soon!

Is there any chance of it coming back before the 30% off code goes away?

Unfortunately, I have no timeline right now as to when the book may be back in the software.

Although it's been years since I got to look at this book, I remember being extremely impressed with it. I hope FaithLife brings it back.

I would like to suggest, and get your thoughts on this idea, that an important companion book to this one would be Denzinger's Enchiridion Symbolorum. This book is compressed; the Enchiridion is in a way an uncompressed version, though while this book is arranged by topic, the Enchiridion is arranged in historical order. Both are very important and complementary - perhaps analogous to how a really good intro to Greek Grammar nevertheless would well be supplemented by something like Smyth's Greek Grammar or the new Cambridge reference grammar.

I would therefore urge those who are rightly interested in Ott's book also to vote for the Enchiridion Symbolorum at https://suggestbooks.uservoice.com/forums/308269-book-suggestions/suggestions/10852476--denzinger-enchiridion-symbolorum-a-compendium-o.
