I'm a graduate of West Coast Baptist College in Lancaster, CA. At West Coast is were I was first introduced to Logos, by the college administration. In fact they went as far as to every year I was there (2006-2010) they had Logos come in and do a seminar on how awesome Logos was. West Coast is a super strong open supporter of Logos, did mention that they are an Independent, Fundamental Baptist College? So my question is why are there very few fundamentalist resources available? Like where are the Jack Hyles books or the Lee Roberson? I would even like to see Jerry Falwell's work. I'm starting this post to spark user interest in fundamentalist works and hopefully get the Logos developers to begin converting these great fundamentalist works to Logos. The following is a list (not complete of course) of some of the authors that I'm sure most if not all baptist would love to see. (Please reply with your suggestions of authors and even Specific titles)

Authors:

1. Paul Chappell

2. John Goetsch

3. Clarence Sexton

4. Jack Hyles

5. Lee Roberson

6. John R. Rice

7. Curtis Hutson

8. Tom Malone

Publication Companies

1. Striving Together Publications - www.strivingtogether.com

2. Crown Christian Publications - http://bookshop.faithforthefamily.com/

3. Sword of the Lord Publishers - http://swordbooks.com/

3. Hyles Publications - www.hylespublications.com

Some Specific Titles

1. Understanding the Bible Commentary - by David Sorenson

2. Order in the Church - by Paul Chappell

3. Hyles Church Manual - by Jack Hyles

4. Hyles Sunday School Manual - by Jack Hyles

 

These lists are not near complete. I could write all night about publications that are fundamentalist that should be featured on Logos. Please respond to this and add more Authors and Titles to the List as i will be doing so in the future!

Oh yeah I know that there are some, but I just think there should be more. A lot of the evangelical resources are great but it just would be nice to see some more as the Fundamentalist category is one of the smallest. I did appreciate the adding of H.A. Ironsides work and I love all the Spurgeon stuff on there. I also noticed that they are begining to add resources from BJU Press. I'm just trying to spark some interest to see more of these great resources added. Thanks for the reply!

I'll admit that from the (somewhat misleading) counts on the products home page I'm surprised that the Puritans rank higher than the Fundamentalists. But revel in the fact that you exceed the Orthodox and Anglican combined.Wink

MJ. Smith:

Within the first minute my memory came up with:

Why do I suspect that the "Anglican (17)" + "Episcopalian (4)" has more to do with sloppy tagging than with how many Anglican resources Logos actually sells? Hmm

A quick check finds that only 3 of the collections above are tagged as "Anglican", and even then only as collections. The separate volumes don't show up at all. Nor do the BCP and the BCP lectionaries. Is one supposed to laugh or cry when even resources that are literally published by "The Episcopal Church" aren't tagged as either "Episcopalian" or "Anglican"? Confused

I'll go report it in the Website forum...

Hint to Logos: SPCK might be a good publisher to check for more Anglican resources. Oh, and there's a rather well-known author named NT Wright. I think he won your March Madness recently. And I think he's supposed to be Anglican... Stick out tongue

I would say that there are a lot of evangelical/fundamentalist resources in L4.  What we need are more liberation, feminist, womanist, etc... resources.

Agreed - although they unfortunately have a hard time getting through pre-pub status.  When something moderate like the New Interpreter commentary can't even make it through, there's not much hope in more liberal resources.

Let's not take this off-track, which I'm afraid I helped do. The original poster requested that particular authors, publishers and titles be included in Logos resources. I'm not at all interested in sorting out resources between evangelical/fundamentalist/restorationist. However, I set this thread off course when I posted a fragment of the Logos Products Home page to show that Matthew was correct that Fundamentalist works are a smaller slice of the pie than I would have expected. Unfortunately, this did not result in more thumbs up for Matthew's list as I had intended but led to a discussion of the balance of resources in Logos in general. Can we move that to another thread and recognize the legitimate request that started this thread as a very legitimate request.

My apologies for the hijacking of the thread ... and welcome to the Logos forums where not everything leads where we intend.Smile

Same here.

MJ might have started to take this thread off-track, I took it off road.  I  am Sorry for doing this.

In all fairness to LOGOS, the OP should really contact the publishers first. Logos makes a cut from all sales, so they are happy to publish pretty much any resource that relates to Bible Study. The real decision is the publishers'.

As an independent Baptist, I would love to have above mentioned authors in my digital Library Yes

I would really like to see Striving Together publications added to the Logos library of resources!
