FL is an amazing company and with the purchase of WordSearch I believe it is even more formidable. For this reason I believe the company can deliver on several projects that have gone limp. I list them in no particular order of importance as for me they all have popular support in this forums and I would surmise with customers at large. I offer some context by including some relevant threads. I hope this post will reignite interest in these all but abandoned projects.

Baylor Handbooks

A popular series which has yet to offer for purchase all existing volumes.

Textual Criticism of the Hebrew Bible by Emanuel Tov

A resource that was pulled shortly after its release from prepub by the author presumably due to errors in the resource offered by Logos.

Idiom Book of New Testament Greek by C.F.D. Moule

A top rate scholarly resource that would be a welcome addition to the Logos corpus.

We want this resource to be offered once again; need I say more.

Edit:

And how could I forget.

The Epistle to the Romans by Karl Barth

FL says the rights to this resource are complicated.

Beloved Amodeo:
I hope this post will reignite interest in these all but abandoned projects.

Good list, and many years involved. I remember the Samaritan magically showed up with the big BW push (up from Jericho, if I remember).

I wonder about Tov, and hebrew in general. Do they still have the expertise, especially after flaming out with Tov. But in-depth criticism books in general tend to be avoided by Logos. I was reading a review on Amazon, listing the top 3 for the greek NT. Logos didn't have any ... its sole participant was over a century ago.

Hi Beloved,

I like you post and your pushing FL to bring valuable resources to us. And it sometimes happens that they take up again formerly abandoned projects, such as publishing and translating Schlatter's https://www.logos.com/product/192127/faith-in-the-new-testament 

Regarding your post, I think I remember differently for 

Beloved Amodeo:

L’ Épître aux Hébreux by Ceslas Spicq

A resource that was offered for prepub and was to be translated but was abandoned without a full explanation.

 

My recollection was that Cliff Kvidahl unearthed the French original after a long search odyssey, but the obscure French publisher, who still holds the copyrights, refused to allow the translation. This closes the case until Spicq's works fall into the public domain (in 2063, if no changes to the rules are made).

Yeah, Mick

Cliff was instrumental in bringing this work to FL's attention and since he frequents these forums on occasion perhaps he is able to fill out the story on this one. I hope he sees this and comments, if he is able.

Regarding Spicq's Hebrews commentary, the publisher at the time—Gabalda—was rather difficult to get on the same page with. However, since then the rights of Spicq's Hebrews, and all of Gabalda's catalog, have been purchased by Peeters. So, now there is a whole new conversation to be had with a different publisher, who to my knowledge is very approachable and may be willing to work with Logos.

I would reach out to Phil Gons and see if you could convince him to have the conversation with Peeters.

It seem that Faithlife is making an effort to bring forward the French language section (it seems there's a new employee dedicated to that language, who posted a lot in the French language subforum). Makes sense to bring on this French original - and maybe some others from the same bucket - and of course have a translation, if at all possible.
