    [quote user="David Wanat"] [quote user="Jeffrey Visser"] Just like the rest of us, the decision makers at Logos will be accountable in that great day for decisions they made that drew people towards Christ or away from Christ as well as what motivated their decision - User counts, money, desire to spread the gospel, putting tools in the hands of teachers

    [quote user="David Wanat"] I do recall back in the days of Libronix 3, they had to make a disclaimer that they were not equating it with Scripture when they first offered the Quran for sale. And some people were still troubled by that. [/quote] Yes, they have come a long way. My library has 3 different English translations of the Qu'ran and one Arabic

    The Qu'ran is there for apologetic purposed. The Mormon material is there for the same purposes. Just because Islamic and Mormon resources are offered on Logos does not mean Logos is including them in orthodox Christianity.

    [quote user="MJ. Smith"] Ben did not say he did not have a term for it - only that it is not "polytheism." Much of the problem is that Western translators used "god" for many types of spiritual being quite unlike our concept of "God"; this is compounded by the lack of terminology in general usage. The religious study's semantic spectrum is not just

    Just out of curiosity, when the resources changed, did the total need to product this change as well? Did the % complete go up?

    [quote user="Ben"] " I am not looking for a long discussion/argument on this. Just a quick question." It doesn't matter. What you're looking for is outside the scope of the forum and would inevitably lead to argument. I speak from long and weary experience. But call Mormons polytheists in our presence, and you lose credibility instantly as someone who

    0552.CommunityServer.Discussions.Components.Files_77_0383.Mormon Studies UPDATED.xlsx [quote user="Ronald Quick"] [quote user="Jeffrey Visser"]It did not go from 45 to 22. One is a condensed list while the other lists each volume separately. For example, History of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, vols. 1–7 contains 7 volumes.

    [quote user="MJ. Smith"] [quote user="Jeffrey Visser"]he LDS church falls outside of orthodox Christianity with their belief in polytheism rather than the traditional Christian belief in the Trinity. This is a fundamental part of Christianity and puts the LDS outside of orthodox Christianity. [/quote] Please reread the guidelines ... it is way over

    [quote user="Ben"] ... Please stay focused on the collection (which, fwiw, I still don't see a point to bidding on. There's nothing in there I would consult on a regular basis except scripture, and I have better resources for that.)

    [quote user="Ben"] Latter-day Saints would not apply the term "polytheism" to themselves, nor is the theology akin to Greek, or Roman systems of pantheons which the term alludes to. Call us non-trinitarians if you must. Please stay focused on the collection (which, fwiw, I still don't see a point to bidding on. There's nothing in there I would consult

    [quote user="Juan Pablo Marichal Catalán"] I'm a Latter-day Saint (aka mormon). The collection is valuable, because it has some good works. The problem with this list is that it is focused mostly in apologetic or controversial works, tought maybe more than 10,000 important works are left aside. It has an anti-mormon flavor, not a neutral one

    Maybe there is a way for volunteers to help and decrease the production costs? Many of us want to see this done. If I can get an electronic copy, maybe I just need to add it as a personal book....
