- The Word of Promise dramatized Bible is excellent. The audio quality is good. The actors are good. The sound effects are good. Unfortunately, the Logos implementation for Android Mobile doesn't have any way to navigate. You literally have to scroll through every single chapter of the Bible, every time you want to use it. --Five stars when they develop a navigation system for Android mobile. It would also be nice if we could have an auto-scrolling text to go with it.
- The audio production quality is excellent. Having all the different actors helps immerse you in the story. Unless I'm missing something, though, in the mobile version, you have to scroll through every single chapter in the Old Testament to find the one you want, every time. You can't even type in the reference you want, either. It would be five stars, if the mobile implementation had a verse picker.
- Logos. Please get back to me about this commentary set when you have all but a few volumes completed. There are people on here who paid 10 years ago, who are still waiting for even half of the volumes to materialize. I'm too old to wait 30 years for this set to finally be finished.

- The advertisement for this work implies regular commentaries are caught up in the minutiae of the text, without much regard for the larger context. I have not found this to be the case. In the places I've consulted the Lexham Context commentaries, they give about the same attention to context as my other sources. The second (and more important) issue I have with these, is their tendency to subject God's word to cultural relevance. When today's society doesn't like Biblical instruction, they have a fine way of setting aside God's word for the sake of man-made tradition. For example, the instruction not to let women teach or exercise authority over men in 1 Timothy 2:11-15, is effectively dismissed as some temporary, local issue that was only relevant to Timothy's audience at that time. The problem with this is the context bases the instruction squarely on God's design for men and women at creation, and woman's role in the fall, not on temporary, local circumstances. If employed consistently, we could dismiss any passage we don't like as irrelevant by this standard, and we wouldn't even need the Bible.
- The NT is missing 2 Corinthians, Philippians, 1 & 2 Timothy, Titus, Hebrews, 1 & 2 Peter, and Jude? The OT only has Joel, Jonah, Nahum, Obadiah, and Ruth? There's no mention of these missing volumes being added later? Yeah, I'm out.
- These are more topical and theological than exegetical. They are solid as topical outlines, using cross references and good theology for each point. Each individual outline generally covers a single verse, or a few verses. As near as I can tell, the complete collection has around 1600 pages of material. If you're looking for solid, topical outlines, this may be for you. If you want something you can reference like a commentary, on a whole chapter or passage, this is probably not what you're after.
