I'm sorry Rosie but I can't resist pointing out that Pelikan was a Lutheran scholar who became Orthodox after he retired but always sounded Catholic. I'm glad you recognized where he really belongs. Big Smile I really want his Creeds and Confessions of Faith in the Christian Tradition (4 Volumes with CD-ROM) by Jaroslav Pelikan and Director Valerie R. Hotchkiss

MJ, Is this the set to which you are referring?

Excellent suggestions. I would buy both sets without hesitation.

As a Reformed pastor, I add that, I, too, would buy Pelikan's histories in a heartbeat. I already own them in print but would love to have them searchable. Pelikan has wide appeal for those who know of him.

I too would love to see this collection in Verbum (Logos), but there are rights restrictions that prevent us from licensing it.  Otherwise, we would have had this long ago.

Thanks for letting us know - such a shame as it is a great resource!  Hoping those restrictions might change!
