Shouldn't I suggest that Verbum acquires one of my most recommended historians, Bernard McGinn? He appears 29 times on the forums site.

Yes

Yes, and if you're going to get that first volume of the Christian Spirituality series (Origins to the Twelfth Century), then please also get the rest of the series:

That's a great list of books MJ!  Thank you for the suggestion.

Rosie, that series looks like a good one.  Jean Leclercq is someone I want to see more of in Verbum.

Yes

Leclercq's The Love of Learning and the Desire for God is on the short list of most impactful books I read in undergrad.

Ditto for me in grad school.

It is time to bring these to people's attention again This is still a major gap in Logos resources.

Verbum has recently released on Pre-Pub a collection of Victorine Texts in Translation.  The Abbey of St. Victor in the 12th century produced some extremely important works of theology and what we would call today spirituality.  I'd love to see all of the suggested resources on Verbum soon.  I'll put in a little plug for the Abbey of St. Victor and suggest that pre-ordering this collection may help encourage Verbum to offer more along these lines!
