It would be nice if Verbum could offer this as a resource ASAP .... after the Logos side got a freebie on the virus.

I’d second that. Of course I have no idea what they have to do to get permission for publishing it.

We work with the Vatican publisher. I'd like to make this available in Verbum.

Hm. I don't want to discuss what we got on the Logos side (free advice is worth every penny, as people used to say) but I think the concept of that book makes it difficult to work as a Logos resource:

"The digital copy of the book will be updated several times a week in the light of new developments and the “rediscovery” of other treasures of the Church’s tradition. It can, therefore, be downloaded several times to keep abreast of new addition" (Zenit.org)

This would ask at least for a fast and automated process, such as with eBooks - and a regular version update shipment. But it seems like a new concept that doesn't really fit to Faithlife production.

Alternatively, users could easily download the pdf, open in Word and save as docx (no interaction) and then build as a PB in Verbum. Once Zenit updates the book, just do the same steps again. There are some quirky fonts in it, but the content seems to come over quite nicely.

EDIT: Of course, if Faithlife brings it over, I'm all for it.

I'd like this in my Verbum library. Yes
