The projected Community Price for Dr Daniel Block's 20 hour Deuteronomy course is now only $90 (regular price $749.99), which is 88% off. The final price could be even lower if more people pre-order before Thursday.

Daniel Block is excellent. I listened through his Sunday School class on Deuteronomy, and it was top notch. Engaging teacher, great insight, well communicated. I have high hopes for this course.

I guess some people are cancelling and/or lowering their bids. Perhaps they think lowering their bid below $90 helps lower the price?

We should be able to gain more successful bids to drop the current price to $90 again.

Bidding $105 will drive the price down.

$85 is already touching the line and if enough last-minute bidders take advantage of this deal it will cross the line at or even below that price-point.

I bid over twice that amount when the product was first advertised so I'm delighted by the current ridiculously low projected price.

88% off is an amazing deal, especially for a Daniel Block course on a key book of - and for understanding the rest of - Scripture. Happy happy happy! Big Smile

While $90 is a great deal, but I wouldn't consider it 88% deal. $749 price is ridiculous and I dont think anyone would buy for that price. It seems to me Faithlife jacked up the price because in the future in some package included it could raise dynamic price higher for some books. The advantage to us who bought on CP is that it can help to lower the price of the package. Anyway, those videos to my opinion are not worth more than $250 retail price.

You are more generous than I- I only buy on CP and then only if they get $90 or below- that's why value is in the eye of the beholder.

Some may ask why? so far I am not overly impressed with the products.

Mobile Ed regular prices are based on the number of hours of video. 1-hour courses are $39, 2-hour courses are $69, and so on.

This is a 20-hour course. It appears that FL priced it consistently with other (very long) courses.

Good point PetahChristian, but seriously, would you pay $749? Don't you think the whole comentary bundle would worth better, and I am pretty sure they put more hours in to it Wink

How many credits would this course be at a seminary?  If it would be more than 1 credit (with some seminaries charging $400-$500 or more per credit hour) then is this not a good deal if what you're looking for is a higher level study of the material but you don't have time (or the inclination) to write papers and/or attend a class?  I'm in on the CP offering and love getting it for the lower price. I got his course on the book of Judges and I've really enjoyed what I've been able to watch so far and how it integrates into my library.  I'm curious as to what others think.

Mr. Gabriel,

Can you please tell me where you found Daniel Block's Sunday School class?  I'm fascinated by his teaching style and would love to be able to get a perspective on how he teaches in a longer, classroom format.

A whole week and not much movement. I guess $90 it is, better than $145 or $105 👍😁👌

I looked closely at the CP graph and I think that the $85 price-point has edged closer to the target in the last few days. Whether it goes on to cross the threshold or not, I'm delighted with the price. That it hasn't already doesn't surprise me too much because when Block's OT317 Judges course crossed the line, a number of Logos users lamented that they hadn't taken advantage of the deal when they had the opportunity. History may be about to repeat itself. Judges and Deuteronomy probably aren't very exciting Bible books for many Christians. Sadly. Of course, if they studied them... ;-)

What does puzzle me are comments on Logos forums (I'm genuinely not looking at anyone in particular) that question the intrinsic educational value and pricing of certain products. I realise that the Mobile Ed format will not appeal to everyone but some people simply prefer, or learn more easily by, receiving the spoken rather than the written word. Some people relate better to a teacher who they can see - albeit on video - than to the teacher hidden behind the text of a book. Some people like to learn from multiple formats: books *and* audio-visual lectures. The criticism sometimes raised that Mobile Ed courses don't carry academic credits overlooks the fact that plenty of people sit in on university/college courses to 'audit' them: they aren't interested in acquiring a diploma but wish merely to learn. Objecting to Logos' over-inflated regular pricing - if that is one's perception - is fine but it is perhaps unhelpful to do so when the specific product being addressed in a thread is being offered at a significantly lower price. Logos is a business operating in a capitalist market economy and uses what appear to me to be wholly standard marketing and pricing techniques. If the regular price seems unreasonable, don't make the purchase. You pays your money and you takes your choice, so the saying goes, but you can equally make a choice by not paying. Another objection seems to be that the internet has many academic level biblical studies and theology courses available for free and, therefore, only suckers would stump up cash for Mobile Ed. I think that if you find a good quality course online that's from a trustworthy source and which also happens to be free then, by all means, make use of it. I would. But Mobile Ed has advantages and features which meet my needs - I'm not going to write a list - and because I'm not studying at a seminary with deadlines for essays I can add the course/s I'm interested in to my wishlist and wait for a sale or, like Block's Deuteronomy course, pick it up for a vastly reduced sum on Community Pricing. I have over 30 Mobile Ed courses and I don't think that I've paid full-price for a single one.

I hope that my above comments don't come across as a rant or as being judgemental against specific individuals because those things are not my intention. I love to learn about God's Word and want to encourage others to learn about God's Word. Blessings to all :-)
