Beside the liturgical books in the other thread, I'd also like to suggest the following:

I believe all of these authors/editors are Anglican, except perhaps for some of the Great Theologians editors, and Keith Clements, who's supposed to be Baptist, but whose subject is Anglican enough.

It would also be nice if we could get some decent non-Evangelical fiction on Vyrso. The Anglicans I can think of right now are:

  • TS EliotThe Murder in the Cathedral
  • Dorothy Sayers: The Man Born to be King
  • Ellis Peters (Edith Pargeter): the Brother Cadfael series
  • I also happened to come across Episcopal Clergy as Amateur Sleuths, which might include something worthwhile.

Also, more generally: since you're working on Anglican resources, you'll have to work with British publishers. Please try to get SCM, DLT and Blackwell on board. The first two shouldn't be too hard: it seems that they -- as well as Canterbury Press -- are related to Westminster John Knox, which Logos already works with. (And it also seems like DLT holds the rights to the much asked for Jerusalem and New Jerusalem Bibles...)

Oh yes, Peter Vardy is Anglican as well. Let's have

I've only actually read the first, and that in an older edition, plus listened to him quite a bit. I can't say I agree with him all the time, but he's good at introducing complicated philosophical questions in a simple and fun way, and good at making you think.

I would like to see more detective fiction in Vyrso.

Also, Susan Howatch has a series of novels about the Church of England that is said to be good.

And there are well-known books by people like Richard Swinburne, Keith Ward and Alister McGrath that ought to be available. The first seems to have converted to Orthodoxy, but most of his works must have been written while he was still Anglican.

There's a novel that I remember reading years ago though I'm not positive that this was it.  What I read was rather interesting.

Thanks everyone for the fiction suggestions.  They all look wonderful.  I will look into getting them in either Logos or Vyrso.

New Interpreter's Bible (12 vols.) while not strictly anglican does cover most every lection you will encounter in the Anglican lectionaries (the only lection I can think of not covered would be 2 Esdras). And I do know many Anglican ministers who use it.

Thanks. As you probably noticed, my interests aren't all that Anglican. I'm just doing my best to find Anglican (Orthodox, Lutheran...) connections to the books I want, so that I can get them directly into the hands of a product manager.Big Smile

Talking about Take and Read: Spiritual Reading: An Annotated List: Logos should buy one or two dozen copies of that book, put them into the hands of all the product managers, and tell them to start getting the rights to the books recommended in it. I don't think you sell even half of them. Then you should also publish the book itself and give it away for free. Take it on the marketing budget. It ought to pay for itself several times over in increased sales.

More suggestions:

  • Diogenes Allen: Philosophy for Understanding Theology, Second Edition (Westminster John Knox)
  • John Macquarrie
  • Desmond Tutu
  • The best modern church history of Britain, whatever that is.
  • Who were the Anglican observers at Vatican II? Did they write something still worth reading?
  • I believe Anglicans like to see themselves as ecumenical, so how about Some ecumenical books? I have to admit I find it a bit of a disgrace that Logos still doesn't have even the most important ecumenical documents. How about adding Ecumenical Product Manager to your title?Big Smile Someone needs to take it on!
  • Which reminds me that SPCK has published A History of the Ecumenical Movement that might also be worth having.
  • Perhaps you and Gabe can cooperate on getting some of the publications from the Fellowship of St Alban & St Sergius?

(Btw, have you seen SPCK Alister McGrath Collection mis-title?)

Some older 'Anglican' Suggestion threads I came upon while looking for other things:

And here's the TOC for Bettenson's Documents of the Christian ChurchSUGGESTION: very broad swath of Christian church documents - please look at the table of contents not who posted this [:-)]. It's pretty impressive!

Not Anglican, but in assigning product managers, Logos is now getting better feedback n what their customers want for the different faiths.

hoping to see more product managers come on board.

There's also a Martin Thornton, who's written on pastoral and spiritual subjects, but I've never quite found the time to check out the books that I have. I've had him recommended, though. (EDIT: I just realized Eugene Peterson includes no less than three Thornton's in his Take and Read: Spiritual Reading: An Annotated List. He calls him "the sanest pastoral theologian of the century". I guess I should read him some day...)

Seems I never said: two of the ones I've got are SPCK, one is Hodder & Stoughton. Judging from the age of the books and the lists of the author's works inside, SPCK has probably taken oven the rights from Hodder & Stoughton at some point.

Another SPCK: Kathryn SpinkA Universal Heart: The Life and Vision of Brother Roger of Taize.
