Pradis is dead, long live Libronix!
“Zondervan announced today they are retiring the Pradis engine and moving their titles to Logos Bible Software.

Amazing! They said it would never happen (whoever they are). But Logos Bible software has finally cut a deal with Zondervan to publish Zondervan works in Libronix format!
I couldn’t ignore news this big. Take a peek and be impressed at a Zondervan library in Libronix.
“Logos Bible Software is pleased to announce the release of 87 Zondervan books! This massive collection contains four collections of commentaries—such as the Expositor’s Bible Commentary and the NIV Application Commentary—plus five collections of multi-volume Bible reference works and 22 individual titles from authors like Gordon Fee, Robert Mounce, and Rick Warren.

I do know that I was never impressed with Pradis when I compared to the few books I had in Pradis format so I’m not saddened to see it go. I never did get excited about the interface. It was too weak.
Go check out the pre-publication list and place an order if you’ve got some big money to spare. Or look into the individual books and snap some of those up.
