Well said. Yes Yes

I don't think that it's the occasional delay that concerns people, it's the continual delays.  For example - Amos, Jonah and Micah is scheduled to be released this month.  However, it was initially scheduled for release May of 2017, this was pushed back to December 2017, then January, then March, then April and now May 2018.

The issue is the lack of clear open communication from Faithlife...but that's something I have been saying for many years. They just don't get it because they are too busy chasing their next big idea to take the care and consideration to do communication well.

True, but it is also the reality that after a seven year search they still have not been able to even identify authors for some of the texts. If they have truly made this a priority that is very discouraging, if it has not been a priority that is also discouraging! Either way, I have just reached the point that I will be happy with whatever is produced in my lifetime. I would certainly not spend money in advance like that again, but live and learn Smile

This is why I sold my set- if I need it and its available- I might purchase it- but at 63 i'll use the $$ elsewhere.

I would request not thanking me for making a huge mistake.  Detailed updates cannot hide the fact that this product has become a marketing fiasco.

Yes. I have looked through the commentary today, and again I am very pleased with what I'm seeing so far.

This IS a great series. I guess that's why I feel so disappointed about the major delays and frustrated by the poor/inaccurate info being shared. Buying this entire series is the only purchase at Logos that I regret, despite the fact that I absolutely love the commentaries that have come out. Since several volumes were give-aways and others highly discounted, I could have saved a lot of money and spent it on stuff I can actually use in my lifetime. Anyway, every time a new volume does come out (and this is only the second one in three years time!), I feel a little bit of comfort. Smile

Hey,

Can anybody make a list and resources timestamp that have published?

Ex, lls:.....

Thanks

I could look in my library but it's not accurate since there have been updates to the EEC volumes. I could look in my orders but that wouldn't work either because I bought the entire set before it was published.  I can't help you so maybe Faithlife can.

And to make things even more complicated James was released and pulled due to plagiarism concern... I really wish they had simply corrected the errors and kept it. At least I own it but it was a fine volume.

Sorting by Electronic Pub date will give the year of release. The Publication date in the next column would yield the same result.

FL Staff or EEC Staff

Are there any updates on the EEC?  I looked at the product page today on logos.com and I noticed that some have "In Writing" next to them and others "In Review with Series Editors" but the vast majority don't have anything.  Does this mean those authors haven't even started them yet?

Thank you

Mattillo,

Thanks for checking in again. I currently have no new updates regarding the EEC. I'll see if Derek has anything to add.

As for the volumes without a publication status, I'll refer you to my post from May:

Jake Mailhot:

When we updated the product page with the new publication status updates, we removed all of the estimated release dates (as we said we would). For the volumes that we don't have any concrete update for (as provided by Derek), we did not include a publication status at all. This does not mean that they are not currently being worked on. I can assure you that there are more than just four volumes currently in the writing stage. When I have more concrete details for these volumes, I will update the product page and post here on this forum thread. But I'm hesitant to assume anything until I have those details in hand from Derek.

The product page's bio of the author of the commentary Philemon in this series should be updated, as he's no longer a grad student. The author of the commentary on Song of Songs has also moved up and over in the academic world, as has the author of the commentary on the Epistles of John, while the author of the one on Jude is no longer a professor. And I noticed a change in another published EEC author's bio that I haven't mentioned.

Given that the series is still under publication and that most of the changes enhance the authors' academic credibility, I think that someone from FL should check and potentially revise all of the bios, at least of the authors not yet deceased.

Thanks for the update Jake, I was wondering about this today. It would be good if this update was in a more obvious place... I only found it through the link in the product page comments.

I asked back in March:

André Kamphuis:

Out of the 37 volumes that still need to be published, only has a publication date, 3 are in review, and 4 are in writing. All the others, 29 commentaries in total, are not even in writing!

(Faithlife, please tell me I misunderstood the labels and that a lot of researching and writing is happening on all these 29 volumes!)

Publication date (1): Amos/Jonah/Micah

In review (3): Joshua, 1&2 Chronicles, Daniel

In writing (4): Leviticus, Ecclesiastes, Jeremiah, Galatians

Not started yet (29): Genesis, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Judges/Ruth, 1&2 Kings, Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Hosea/Joel/Obadiah, Nahum/Habakkuk/Zephaniah, Haggai/Zechariah/Malachi, Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Acts, Romans, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Colossians, 1&2 Thessalonians, 1&2 Timothy/Titus, Hebrews, James, 1 Peter, 2 Peter, Revelation.

How difficult can it be to just find out if a commentary is in writing or not? Hmm
