I would heartily agree with these books. I know Dr. Cottrell personally and he is well worth the time and effort to read/study/cogitate his writings.

I would especially like to see the first three.  It is a comprehensive explanation of Arminian theology.  He also has a new book out:  What the bible says about Grace:  Set Free!

  2. What the Bible Says about God the Ruler
  3. What the Bible Says about God the Creator

I just spoke with Steve Jennings from College Press.  Prof. Cottrell is reworking these three books into one volume.  It is slated to be published later this year.  Steve is certainly open to Logos publishing them, but admitted that "Logos has to want to."  College Press regularly sends Logos works for review to be published. 

I would think Cottrell's above works (especially if condensed) would be attractive to Logos.  Several of his works have already been published, and this would be a good resource from an Arminian (whatever THAT means, lol) perspective.  I often don't agree with Cottrell (and I am certainly NOT saying I am smarter, just that I disagree with his views on some things, like the Holy Spirit!), but he is definitely a good thinker and clear writer.

Again, we need to voice our support for these works, to give Logos the heads up on them.

I like Apples.  Especially Honeycrisp.

I was hoping you talked with them about more than just the Bible Study Textbook series. The "What The Bible Says About.." series was also great. Jack Cottrell's are some of the best published by College Press.  I did however diagree with a couple of his views in a book on difficult social issues. His view on organized labor fell short of the parable of the vineyard workers. Overall he is thought provoking and states the case clearly.

If College Press is submitting works for publication consideration it should not be hard to secure rights to publish.

I would add my strong agreement to the addition of these titles to the Logos library. These 3 works in particular are invaluable. I had the pleasure of being a student of Dr. Cottrell's for a number of years, and although I Iikewise am not always in agreement with all of his views, I find his works to be thoughtful, clear, and well-presented. In my opinion, these works should be included in every bible student's library.

Emile, you might want to change your forum ID so spam bots can't harvest your email address from the forum. It's a little counter-intuitive so read this: http://wiki.logos.com/Changing_Forum_Display_Name

I'd like to add another voice to those that would like to see more of Dr. Cottrell's works in Logos. As I'm sure the original poster knows, his book "The Faith Once for All: Bible Doctrine for Today" is already available in Logos. This is "yet another" systematic theology book (with the title perhaps crafted to appeal to a more general audience, just my guess) which I became aware of in a ST seminary course. It is comprehensive and well reasoned. After presenting the major views on a topic he does not hesitate to argue for his position (which is always conservative). I now have the Logos version and it is the first resource I go to on theological topics. Another note - he is editor of the College Press NIV Commentary series which is also available in Logos.

Floyd, while I am still very interested in Ted's perspective, I can add a little bit on Jack Cottrell, until others, who are more familiar with him, add more (Keith has given some insight already).  Professor Cottrell has been with Cincinnati Christian University (college and graduate) for decades.  He is with the non-denominational "Christian Churches/Churches of Christ."  That is a movement (sometimes known as "Restoration Movement,"  "Stone-Campbell" movement, etc.) that has historically placed a primacy on "going back to the text" for faith and practice, rather than being "encumbered" by creeds and tradition.  Many early leaders came from Presbyterian, Baptist, and Methodist backgrounds with the goal to "unite under Christ."  He is an accomplished  author (as you can see by the list), never afraid to stake out his viewpoint and express it in unequivocal terms.  His breadth of knowledge is wide, and one of his hallmarks is being able to clearly communicate complex issues.  He knows how to break down ideas so that they are more easily understood.  He stands more in the Arminian tradition ("Arminian" can mean many things . . . but here I use it as "non-Calvinist.").  Whether you agree or disagree, you will be helped by his thinking.  He is a joy to read (lol, and also annoying, when you disagree! Stick out tongue) because of his clear writing/thinking style.  He is also on facebook, and submits many "notes" on theological matters (as well as practical church issues).

You can read more about the early leaders (Barton W. Stone, Alexander Campbell) in the Biographical Dictionary of Evangelicals (http://www.logos.com/products/details/2605) and the Movement itself in Encyclopedia of Christianity (http://www.logos.com/products/details/2060--look for "Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)", and "Restoration Movements."  The link only shows vol 1-3, there is also vol 4, and the pre-pub vol. 5, for separate purchase from Logos).  That may be more than you need about Jack Cottrell, but it will tell you a bit about the tradition he stands in.

  He also has Baptism: A biblical study and he wrote the classical Arminian view in the perspectives on election book.  He is very thorough and scholarly.  I actually write this post while sitting in his classroom

He did not say Dr. Cottrell was in the classroom - just that it was his classroom. Smile
