I know this has been suggested before, but I thought it might be good to make another push for The Minor Prophets: An Exegetical and Expository Commentary, edited by McComiskey.  This is a fantastic commentary series on all of the Minor Prophets by Individual Old Testament scholars (some of the best Old Testament scholars in the field),  which includes exegesis that deals with the Hebrew Text, as well as exposition.  This is truly the best of both worlds in a single series, especially since the exegesis and exposition are separated into two separate sections.  Though the set retails for $69, it can be purchased new for $28 in Hardcover.  If Logos could strike a balance between $69 and $28, this series would likely sell a lot of units for Logos.  One reason we may not have seen this series arrive in Logos, is that Old Testament commentaries do not sell as many volumes as New Testament commentaries.  Most of our Logos libraries reflect this reality, since there are fewer Old Testament commentaries to purchase.  If we are going to preach and teach the whole council of God, it would be beneficial to have more Old Testament commentaries in Logos.  So if we want this series in Logos, we need to let Logos know that we would actually purchase it.  What do you think?  Would you purchase this on Prepub if Logos could strike a balance between $69 and $28?

Yes,

and have you sent an email to suggest@logos.com ?

The only reason I want to make sure you have sent the email is because I really would like to see this in logos format too.

thanks

No, but I took your advice and sent them a formal request via suggest@logos.com.  Thank you for this suggestion.  I also linked this forum thread in my email to them, so that they can gauge interest in this resource.  So if one really does want this resource, please speak up.  Otherwise, Logos may look at this thread and surmise that interest is low.

+1

 

Logos promised to publish almost every book from Baker, I think this commentary qualifies Smile

I am glad to see that it is now available as a single volume, the three volume set cost me a fortune a few years ago.
