I'm going to try a different tack: posting a separate UserVoice suggestion for each of his books, since the "all his works" one which has 266 votes already seems like it's being ignored. I guess Faithlife can't act on something that isn't specific enough.

So please go vote for any and all of these that you'd be hypothetically interested in (even if, in the end, you couldn't buy ALL of them).

These others were already on UserVoice, but need more votes:

Yes keep pushing

Yes. I don't understand the obstacle or reluctance here. They're clearly in demand, and have been for years. I'll go vote.

Ben:

I'm guessing it's because they have no relationship with Alter's main publisher, W. W. Norton & Company, and it's hard to get a new publisher on board. Norton is primarily a secular publisher that might not be eager to deal with a bible software company, even though they do publish some Christian books. It took Faithlife/Logos the longest time to get a deal with HarperOne to publish C.S. Lewis's books, even with much begging from users.

Thanks for the persistent interest, I agree that these would be great additions to logos. We will let you know when we have an update.

I sat down after work to read portions of Alter's Isaiah and pondered just how easy it would be to compare it with other versions with Faithlife.

Isaiah 44:3-4 Robert Alter 2019

For I will pour water on thirsty land, // and rivulets upon the dry ground,

I will pour My spirit on your seed // And My blessing on your offering

And they shall sprout among the grass // like willows by brooks of water.

Y’all won’t believe this—but I found his entire OT work in PDF online...free😳!  Just sayin’.

PM me if you want more info.

They only have the first volume of Everett Fox’s translation. The second volume would be another fine addition.
