Would love to see the Dake Bible and the other writings of Finis Jennings Dake (www.dakebible.com) made available in the Logos format.  Also would love to see the writings of David K. Bernard (www.pentecostalpublishing.com) made available in the Logos format.

Men like Dake and Bernard should have their teachings made available in Logos, which is the best bible software on the market today.  

Thanks.

They are some controversial authors (especially Dake), in the little bit I've been able to learn about them since you posted this. I trust those controversies can be left off of these forums, as that is not their purpose.

Since both of them publish through specific publishing houses, I'd encourage you to contact those publishing houses as well.

Logos does not have many resources from the various Pentecostal perspectives and both of these are certainly in that camp.

So what you are trying to say is that Logos rejects any material that does not fit within a particular orthodoxy.  That is so wrong.  I don't agree with everything Dake says, for example, so much good material is there that the whole work should not be disgarded.  

Every one of your users spend money on this product because they feel a burden to fulfill the great commission, and shouldn't Logos be available to all religious persuasions, especially the fastest growing Christian group in the world, the Pentecostals?  Occasionally I find some of the material available in my Logos package misguided from my perspective, but I don't believe we should throw the baby out with the bath water.  We each pick and choose what we want to read, as overall Logos is a great resource.

I use Logos extensively to prepare my sermons and study notes, and if I don't agree with a particular author's perspective, I either don't purchase their material or just ignore it altogether, just as we would do in a library or bookstore setting.  If you don't like like Pentecostal books, then walk right past those shelves in your bookstore.  Logos should strive to be a digital collection of every religious work that is available so that the reader can pick and choose what they want to read as they desire, not limiting your collection to what the librarian is willing to read.  I bought this software when it was called the Libronix Digital Library, and I never expected a "library" to have an agenda.

The Bible says, "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: Because thou hast rejected knowledge...."  Please don't reject knowledge, even if you do not understand it or agree with it.  The Pentecostals are another market that your company is ignoring, and I am suggesting you fill their needs too, a true "library".  Thanks.

No. I did not say that.

What I did say was that to date, Pentecostal resources have been under-represented in Logos' material. (BTW, that isn't the only category where it seems under-represented, IMHO.)

Perhaps I should have been more clear.

Anyone have any information as to whether or not this is ever likely to happen?

So what do we have to do to get Dake and others like him published that are not currently published.  What if we are able to get a group who would fund such a project, would it still be rejected?

Generally, this requires an agreement between the publisher and Logos. If you haven't done so yet, send emails (or other forms of communication) to both.

I agree with the main idea behind this post. I too am a long-time Logos user, and I too find Pentecostal thought somewhat underrepresented in the Logos universe. Did Dake have some thoughts from "way out in left field?" Sure, to a preacher from another system of Christian thought. But would that person's favorite teacher also have some far-flung ideas of their own, from the perspective of Rev. Dake? You can count on it. I'm not a fan of many Reformation beliefs, but I have one or two Logos courseware collections which, though taught by Reformation scholars, have much value that I can see, and are among my favorites. Back to Dake, who was a widely respected theologian, pastor and teacher from the previous generation: Whatever some may think of his theology, please incorporate his chief works in the Logos collection. The sooner the better!

Both Dake and Bernard are in the Wordsearch catalog that was just acquired by Faithlife.

Bernard and other Oneness Pentecostals are in the range 0:2612 - 0:2637

Dake books are at 6:1 -  6:18

Exactly!  Dake most definitely held some, shall we say, unique ideas.

Dr. Bernard is an excellent academic who holds 2 Ph.D.’s & is the president of UGST (cf. online).  He is a man of impeccable character & is very down to earth.  We have dialogued for years & years now - and he’s never too busy to interact.

Look forward to having his works on Logos.
