Mattillo:

Anyone know where this email came from?  Am I not subscribed to some special offer?  I checked zondervan's site yesterday but didn't see it listed

Some emails are personalized offers that only go out to a subset of people. E.g., "You have X in your wishlist, and it's on sale this month."

All we know is that it wasn't a general email which was sent to every subscriber.

Thankful for the forum thread, as that was also how I learned about it.

Thanks to FL for including Carta and a Hebrew audio bible in Logos 9!

honestly I have not had the chance to dig into the very much at this point. From the small amount of time I have looked at them they seem to offer good insights in a short space. So far so good! :)

Anyone know how long the sale is on for?

Just saw a new Zondervan FB add that states: "Save 64% on this 12-volume commentary set from Logos Bible Software right now: http://bit.ly/2mT93Wh Don’t wait, this sale ends March 27."

Would anyone buy this if they already had the Revised edition? 🤔🤔🤔🤔

Not likely but.....

  • Volume 1 articles are very good and hard to imagine why they were removed from the revision...
  • Tenny's commentary on Gospel John
  • James M. Boice on Galatians
  • Leon Morris on Hebrews
  • R. L. Harris on Leviticus

While there are 17 books that are completely replaced the above ones mentioned are strong ones and at this price tempting...

Articles plus 17 different commentaries are they wroth it, a lot might say yes most no.... I value the EBC more than the EBCR but had I owned EBCR first would i buy EBC now.... For me I think I can say yes but I highly value the articles and john/hebrews in particular.

The original is gold and cited so often it would be a shame not to have it. I had in print and jumped on it shortly after moving to Logos.

Yes but he was retained in EBCR and possibly polished a bit.

I bought it before the price increase originally because of all of the references to it from other resources.  For me, the ability to follow links quickly and easily is the most useful aspect of the Logos ecosystem, so I take advantage of discounts on popular scholarly sets whenever possible.

Always remember if you find it is just not worth it in a couple weeks you can call and let FL know it wasn't right for you and you can return it, but I hope you find enough value in it to want to keep it.
