- From my years of using Logos, I see that the official explanation of Community Pricing is as given by "Batman" down below in the comments. But I strongly do not believe that's how it functions. I believe Logos just charges what they wont to begin with and hope people choose that amount ignoring the number of people who choose the lowest bid.
- I dont how true that really is; but, sure does seem like it, quite often. Having a higher or lower community pricing doesn't really matter to Logos, FaithLife, or whatever name they are being called this week :D since they gain about the same, regardless. About, because it won't be exactly the same; like the elections, it is possible for the lowest bid to actually result in more income than a higher priced segment. The main goal would be a higher price point after production. This probably would come about with a lower price point, because they could artificially offer "higher discounts". A $350 price gives much less wiggle room for Pre-Pub. At this point, there's not a lot of interest apparently at a $350 price point, as this has been around for over 3 years. So, selling it for even higher seems rather unlikely. Now, even after saying all that, I had bid $25 or $50 on a series of collegiate lectures, and suddenly the lowest bid increased to $125, leaving my bid unattainable. So, while I don't truly believe what you have said, when things like that happen, it makes it difficult to believe my explanation. Regardless, I do hope people will see this and begin to bid on it, at the $50 price point because that's what I can afford, but, will not be able to pay $200-350 even if it turns out to be "worth" it. So, come on everyone: Bid $50 for it, so we can have what appears to be the coolest collection ever, at a great price.
- Hi Logos team, think you meant to title the book authored by John H. Walton in this series as "Job" but it shows up as "Deuteronomy".
- Awesome resource. The ESV Study Bible is great. One of the best tools I have invested in. It has always helped me in giving good information even in the difficult to understand verses. Although the level of English is at College level, it is easy to understand. Have bought over 3 (hard copies) of these for my friends and they are all happy with it. There are a ton of maps, charts and illustrations as well to aid you in your Bible Study. There are some awesome Articles & Resources as well, they are: Articles & Resources God's Plan of Salvation Biblical Doctrine: An Overview Biblical Ethics: An Overview Interpreting the Bible Reading the Bible The Canon of Scripture The Reliability of Bible Manuscripts Archaeology and the Bible The Original Languages of the Bible The Septuagint How the New Testament Quotes and Interprets the Old Testament The Bible in Christianity The Bible and World Religions The Bible and Religious Cults History of Salvation in the Old Testament
- This series is an awesome resource for those who want a good mixture of the technicality of the Greek language + pastoral commentary + good historical and background information on the text. The work in these books are phenomenal. The exegesis is thorough and scholarship is top-notch. This series is a perfect balanced technical and pastoral commentary. Bock's commentary on Luke-Acts, Köstenberger on John, Jobes' on 1 Peter are some of the awesome books I have partly read in this series. They do not disappoint!
