I noticed Ben Witherington III had a post on his blog concerning Cambridge University Press, so I took the opportunity to ask him about the New Cambridge Bible Commentary, as well as some of his other Cambridge published works, and if he could put in a good word to get them into Logos.  He answered very quickly!  The post is here.  It may not do anything, but he is an editor for the commentary series, as well as a world renowned scholar, so it doesn't hurt to ask!

YesYes  I agree!  Would love to have the New Cambridge Bible Commentary.  Well done, Joseph!

Six years later and still no sight of it. I've added a post on UserVoice about it, so throw your votes at it and see if that helps:

Thanks. We hope to bring these into Logos, I will update on any developments.

That's great news. It would be great to get the Gordon Fee Galatians commentary that no other Bible software company offers either. Hopefully an opportunity for Faithlife.

Wow, I had no idea he'd written that. Gordon Fee's credentials as both a biblical scholar and a passionate Pentecostal believer are unmatched.

And that link opens my eyes to another Christian academic publisher I never knew about, Deo Publishing. Faithlife ought to be in touch with them and try to get some stuff from their catalogue. In addition to more in that Pentecostal Commentary Series, it looks like there are lots of other titles that would be of interest to Logos users. From their website: "Deo Publishing is an independent academic publishing venture specializing in Biblical Studies, conceived and operated as a genuine service to the academic and religious communities. The publishing programme is a direct response to the needs of scholars, their students, and interested general readers."

Deo was purchased by Brill late last year, and Faithlife does have a relationship with Brill already, so that could help.

Another publisher with a well regarded theologian who don't seem to have taken up the opportunity to partner with Bible software companies like Faithlife is Athanasius Press. They have 3 commentaries by Peter Leithart:

Thanks for the suggestion, Rosie.  I've happily voted for it, having not paid much attention to the suggestbooks UserVoice before.

However, a quick look at the top 100 suggests that a number of these resources are now in Logos, but haven't been removed from UserVoice.  Is it given attention by anyone at Logos?
