Rosie Perera:

This is an important work I'm glad to see making it into the Logos catalogue.

As far as I can tell, this is the first and only title from Orbis Books in the catalogue. They have a lot of works significant for academic study of theology. I hope more are to come.

Agreed. Orbis is an important publisher of Christian books. If you do a Google search for Orbis on the forums (orbis site:community.logos.com),  you'll see that lots of people have requested various books from Orbis. I hope Faithlife develops a relationship with Orbis and gets more.

It would make things a lot easier if Logos offered a Carta package

Logos should develop a Liberal/Liberation/Woke base package.

Also, Alister McGrath, Reformation Thought: An Introduction!

I've been asking for more Alister McGrath, particularly his history and science/religion works.

They do offer one with 13 volumes in it, but it doesn't include these latest additions.

I agree with this assertion. I would add this bundle should offer a price break. Thanks Rosie! NOAB yippee!

Yes  This would indeed be great if they would have another Carta package to include these new additions!

Rosie Perera:

I do agree that a Liberal/Progressive base package would be a good idea and would have takers, though I wouldn't include the word "woke" in its title as that can be sometimes used to ridicule the movement. Liberation Theology is only one facet of Liberal readers' interests. They're also interested in the social gospel, social/racial justice, feminism/egalitarianism, gender studies, LGBTQ+ studies, indigenous theologies, rethinking the literalism of Scripture, etc. There would need to be liberal/mainline reference materials like Anchor Yale Bible Dictionary, liberal/mainline commentaries (e.g., Anchor Yale Bible Commentary, New Interpreter's Bible, Hermeneia), books by some of the more liberal theologians, preachers, and biblical interpreters, e.g., Friedrich Schleiermacher, Rudolf Bultmann (Faithlife doesn't have much by him, only one volume of Hermeneia), Albrecht Ritschl, Adolf von Harnack, Henry Ward Beecher, Walter Rauschenbusch, Harry Emerson Fosdick, Paul Tillich, John A.T. Robinson, John Hick, William Sloane Coffin. As for Liberal Catholics, would want to include Hans Küng, Gustavo Gutiérrez, Joan Chittister, Leonardo Boff (Liberation theology), Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza, Sallie McFague, Allyson Jule. And hey, why not even some of the ones that evangelicals truly think are heretical, whom even I as a progressive evangelical sometimes find it hard to swallow, such as John Shelby Spong, Marcus Borg, John Dominic Crossan, Bart D. Ehrman. And then there's the whole realm of neo-orthodox/progressive/universalist/neo-anabaptist/emergent/post-evangelical authors, such as Karl Barth, Reinhold Niebuhr, H. Richard Niebuhr, Walter Wink, Stanley Hauerwas, Douglas John Hall, Walter Brueggemann, Phyllis Tickle, Phyllis Trible, Rosemary Radford Ruether, Brian McLaren, Brad Jersak, Robin Parry (pseudonym: Gregory MacDonald), Jim Wallis, Tony Campolo, Shane Claiborne, Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, Bruxy Cavey, Ron Sider, John Howard Yoder, Stuart Murray, Gregory Boyd, Scot McKnight, Rob Bell, Rachel Held Evans, Sarah Bessey; and Catholic authors who stretch the boundaries of Catholic orthodoxy, such as Richard Rohr. Probably also of interest would be existentialists and early higher criticism proponents (form criticism, history of religions, etc.), critical theory, historical Jesus quest/Jesus Seminar, the New Perspective on Paul, and assorted others: Martin Heidegger,
Søren Kierkegaard, Baruch Spinoza, Ludwig Feuerbach, Albert Eichhorn, Johann Gottfried Eichhorn, F. C. Baur, Julius Wellhausen, Hermann Gunkel, Martin Noth, Gerhard von Rad, Ernst Troeltsch, William Wrede, Rudolf Otto, James Muilenburg, Jürgen Habermas, Albert Schweitzer, Krister Stendahl, E.P. Sanders, J. A. Fitzmyer, James Dunn, N.T. Wright.

[EDIT: Another category to include would be the Unitarians and Transcendentalists, e.g., William Ellery Channing, Theodore Parker; I don't know of others that were theologians/pastors per se who published works or sermons, but Ralph Waldo Emerson was among their number (an essayist/philosopher/poet, and the son of a Unitarian minister).]

I'm probably missing plenty, and probably conflating many areas that wouldn't necessarily all belong in one base package, and there might even be contradictory views among some of these authors. But they'd all be of interest to stretch one's thinking, that's for sure. If nothing else to be able to refute them better if you wanted to, by reading their own words, not caricatures of them written by others.

Reinhold Niebuhr
Speaking of Reinhold he has a few titles in prepub that are receiving little attention. One I'd like to spotlight is The Nature and Destiny of Man. I'd like to see this in production tomorrow.
