And if you are looking for items to use up the rest of your Lottery winnings try:

Be sure to also get Migne's monumental work on the Latin Fathers, the Patrologiae Cursus Completus: Series Latina (221 vols.). And to round out your collection of the church Fathers in their original languages, don't forget the Patrologia Syriaca (vols. 1-2) and Orientalis (vols. 1-14, 16) which contain the Arabic, Armenian, Coptic, Ethiopic, Greek, Georgian, Slavonic, and Syriac writings of the Fathers of the Eastern Church.

[[see the foot notes at the end of the Patrologiae Cursus Completus: Series Graeca (167 vols.) listing]]

[[On the other hand - WOW]]

Martin - I have been asking for this since the old newsgroup days (before this forum). I have never gotten an answer one way or the other from Logos.

I did a quick search Foxe's Book of Martyrs, My-utmost-for-his-highest, and Tozer-Knowledge-Of-The-Holy.

Can all be found as a pdf on many websites. they could be converted to a pbb.

For the most part I would agree that these are desirable works to have, but I would disagree regarding the "concise" versions.  It isn't as though we're going to walk around with these in an attachè case so why have a concise version?

The price tag was 200 dollars if I rememberer correctly for the comparative one so I thought concise is better than nothing.

All Bibles currently in pre-pub or community pricing especially the collection of older English translations and the REB.

The Community Bible

The apocrypha section of Bibles that include it but have excluded in Logos

Important early translations - Georgian, Armenian, Gothic, Anglo-Saxon (partial), Old Church Slavonic, ...

This is, remember, BIBLE study software.

Okay, so it has been over a year and a quarter since I made my contribution to this thread, it is worth looking at how well Logos has responded to my list.

First the journals.

Stephen Edward Paynter:

Okay, this is easy ...

   all the good academic journals not already available, but especially:

  • Journal for the Study of the New Testament (JSNT)
  • Journal for the Study of the Old Testament  (JSOT)
  • New Testament Studies (NTS)
  • Novum Testamentum (NT)
  • Vetus Testamentum (VT)
  • Journal of Biblical Literature (JBL)  - The early missing years

Quickly followed by:

  • Biblica
  • Bulletin for Biblical Research
  • Scottish Journal of Theology
  • Scottish Journal of Systematic Theology
  • Biblical Interpretation
  • Interpretation
  • Havard Theological Review
  • Journal of Theological Studies
  • Theology
  • Theology Today
  • Zeitschrift für die Alttestamentliche Wissenschaft 
  • Zeitschrift für die Neutestamentliche Wissenschaft und die Kunde der Älteren Kirche

Also some of the missing "evangelical" and "Reformed" journals from the Galaxie collections, such as:

  • Calvin Theological Journal
  • Evangelical Quarterly

Unfortunately, none of these have been able to be added to Logos. This a pity, as Logos searching is so much better than that provided my the various databases of journals available on the web. I realise that adding these resources will depend upon the publishers, but I hope logos continue to badger these publishers. It is not as if Logos would sell these products particularly cheaply.

Now we turn to classic scholarship on Acts.

Stephen Edward Paynter:

Also, I would love more classic scholarship books on Acts. First and foremost:

  • Foakes Jackson and Krisopp Lake's, "The Beginnings of Christianity Part 1: The Acts of the Apostles" (5 volumes;
    • Vol. 1 Prolegomena (1920);
    • Vol. 2: Prolegomena Criticism (1922);
    • Vol. 3 The Text (1926);
    • Vol. 4 Translation and Commentary (1933);
    • Vol 5 Additional Notes (1933)
    • Then there is the book that made scholars take Luke-Acts seriously as a single work in 2 volumes:
  • Henry J. Cadbury, "The Making of Luke-Acts", 2nd Edition, 1958 (1st Edition, 1927)
  • Leander E. Keck and J. Louis Martyn (eds), Studies in Luke-Acts (in honour of Paul Schubert), Fortress Press (Philadelphia), 1966.
  • A modern supplement of Jackson and Lake's is the Eerdmans Series "The Book of Acts in its First Century Setting"
    • Vol. 1 The Book of Acts in its Ancient Literary Setting, Winter and Clarke (eds) - 1994
    • Vol. 2 The Book of Acts in its Graeco-Roman Setting, Gill and Gempf (eds) - 1994
    • Vol. 3 Paul in Roman Custody, Rapske, 1994
    • Vol. 4 The Book of Acts in its Palestinian Setting, Bauckham (ed) - 1995
    • Vol. 5 The Book of Acts in its Diaspora Setting, Levinskaya - 1996
    • Witness to the Gospel: The Theology of Acts, Marshall and Peterson (eds) 1998.
  • Also highly desirable are following conservative works:
    • Colin J, Hemer, The Book of Acts in the Setting of Hellenistic History", Eisenbrauns (Winona Lake: Indiana), 1989
    • W. Ward Gasque, A History of the Interpretation of the Acts of the Apostles, Wipf and Stock Publishers (Eugene: Oregon, 1989

 

I know there is a collection of 31 classic commentaries on Acts which should be delivered soon, http://www.logos.com/product/15838/classic-commentaries-and-studies-on-the-acts-of-the-apostles, These are welcome. Furthermore, there is the Fortress press collection on pre-pub: http://www.logos.com/product/30096/fortress-press-studies-in-luke-acts. This contains the classic collection of papers by Deblius and Tennenhils excellent two volume work on the narrative unity of Luke-Acts. Both extremely welcome, and arguable should have been on my original list. When these are available on Logos a good step in providing some decent Acts scholarship will have been taken. However, until all the volumes I mention above, the Logos library will remain seriously weak with regard to Acts scholarship.

 

When we turn to scholarship on the New Perspective on Paul, we see some important advances which are to be warmly welcomed.

Stephen Edward Paynter:

Some of the important pro- and con- New Perspective on Paul resources, including:

  •  Krister Stendahl's Paul Among Jews and Gentiles
  • J.D.G. Dunn's collection of papers, "The New Perspective on Paul"
  • N.T. Wright's "Climax of the Covenant"
  • Justification and Variegated Nomism", Baker Academic, 2001, 2004. (Edited by Carson, O'Brien and Seifrid).
  • Stephen Westerholm, "Perspectives New and Old on Paul: The Lutheran Paul and his Critics"

 

Krister Stendahl's "Paul among Jews and Gentiles" and E.P. Sanders important work "Paul the Law and the Jewish People" are included in a pre-pub collection which is gathering interest, http://www.logos.com/product/29485/paul-and-pauline-theology-collection.N.T. Wright now has a 34 volume collection, http://www.logos.com/product/8576/n-t-wright-collection, which includes his "Paul: Fresh Perspectives" (also available separately). Plus there is his new collection of studies on Paul, http://www.logos.com/product/29160/paul-and-the-faithfulness-of-god, which looks like it contains a volume which will subsume much of "Climax of the Covenant". Furthermore, there is his "Justification: God's Plan and Paul's Vision". http://www.logos.com/product/30283/justification-gods-plan-and-pauls-vision, which is going into production.

This means that the pro-NPP is now well supported, although it would be strengthen by adding Dunn's collection of papers I mentioned above.

Unfortunately, con-NPP resources have not kept pace.  There is a collection of Pauline studies, http://www.logos.com/product/23093/baker-academic-pauline-studies-collection, which includes the important works: Paul and the Jews, and Paul, the Law and the Covenant, both by A. Andrew Das, and T.R. Schreiners, "The Law and Its Fulfillment: A Pauline Theology of Law." (This collection also strengthens Acts scholarship, by including T.E. Phillips, "Paul, His Letters and Acts")

I note that the helpful collection of papers on justification (including papers by Gathercole and Wright), Justification in Perspective: Historical Developments and Contemporary Challenges edited by Bruce L. McCormack, is included in the collection http://www.logos.com/product/25832/baker-academic-theological-studies-collection, currently being developed. Hopefully this will soon be broken out from its fellows once it has been published.

However, Logos needs other anti-NPP works, most notably the ones I mentioned above, but others are available.

 

Now we turn to other works, including works of classic philosophy and the early church father's in their original languages.

Stephen Edward Paynter:

I would also love to see the some works of classic philosophy:

     Pre-Socratics; Plato; Aristotle; Descartes; Locke; Rousseu; Hume; Berkeley Kant; Russell; Ayer; Gilbert; Austin e.t.c.

The Church Fathers in Greek and Latin

Oh, and Francis Turretin's "Institutes of Elentic Theology" (in English!)

Spurgeon's Sword and Trowel volumes that deal wih the Downgrade Controversy 

It is great to see so many works of philosophy in commnity pricing ... this is fantastic, and very exciting.

Furthermore, there are important collections of the Church Fathers in their original languages also in community pricing .... One can only hope that enough interest will be generated to make these important works available in the digital age.

Not so important, but still of interest would be the English version of Turretin's Institutes, and Spurgeon on the Downgrade controversy. The latter is an important look at how one stands for historic Christianity in an age when scepticism is encroaching on the church. Surely it will be needed again.
