Whyndell Grizzard:

There are a bunch of books that are only in audio. I don't know why. Probably has to do with rights, but it's irritating when it's a book you want, and it's not available in a Logos or e-book edition.

Here are some others that have this problem.

Published by Ligonier Ministries:

Published by Zondervan:

That's just from going through one page (of 23) of search hits on Zondervan audio books and looking them all up to see if there was a corresponding print version. I don't have time to do all the rest of the catalogue, but I suspect there are lots more.

Thanks Rosie, I had not done a search yet, but yes it can be a little disconcerting- I guess there must be a need there for others.

Seems odd to me that Ligonier would grant audio rights but not book rights, especially when they have a number of other resources in Logos.  Definitely a mystery.

Yes it is a mystery. It seems to me that Logos is trying to promote audio products. While sometimes I do listen to audio bibles for the most part I would much rather read the text than listen to it. I can read it faster and comprehend it deeper by reading and studying it.

They need to do a better job with the TOC for audiobook and audio lectures.  They’re not providing titles only “episode 1, 2, 3, etc.“ That doesn’t help to navigate the subjects being discussed.
