I love the idea of Noet. I was requesting something like this many years ago around the time of Logos 3. Back then I was lamenting the fact that Logos had virtually no quality resources for philosophical theology or apologetics.

Over the years Logos has been able to get some really good stuff and I appreciate that. I'm very happy to see the works of Plato, Aristotle, Hume etc. These are fantastic! Unfortunately Faithlife still lacks some of the most relevant contemporary works in this area. For instance, the Nicholas Wolterstorff collection, which doesn't even show in Noet for some reason, is absurd. There is only one pre-pub book by Alvin Plantinga, and of course it nothing but a summary of his magnum opus.  There is nothing by Richard Swinburne. There is nothing by Michael Rea. Nothing by Marilyn McCord Adams. Nothing by Thomas McCall. 

Noet has a nice package on classic studies on free will... but the works in that collection only drive one crazy that there is nothing relevant to the contemporary debate!! Nothing by Robert Kane, nothing by John Martin Fischer, no Thomas Flint! 

Also, what about journals? Philosophia Christi, Faith and Philosophy?

Anyway, you get the point. Logos has made some progress over the last several years (and I really appreciate what Noet is trying to do), but contemporary works that are high quality in the field of philosophy, philosophical theology, and apologetics are still seriously lacking. This post is really just a friendly reminder that there is a consumer base for this stuff. These are the sorts of books Faithlife needs to try and acquire in order to really catch the eyes of some of the people it's trying to catch with Noet and in order to offer some top notch resources.

P.S. Thank you for having some good stuff from Oliver Crisp! But still missing some very important works from him: God Incarnate, Divinity and Humanity, Retrieving Doctrine, etc.
