The green dot is creeping higher. Interestingly, the dot for funding at $90 isn't far behind.

Hm. I would have expected https://www.logos.com/product/192163/mobile-ed-ot362-book-study-ezekiel to move faster, after Jan found that only a small number of bidders is needed to get this CP into production (included the link as a service on this new 3rd page of the thread).

Am I the only one who was confused by the math? If one bid increases $100’s progress by 0.2%, wouldn’t it need 100 bids to go from 80% to 100%?

Either way, it’s good to see the funding getting closer and closer to production costs!

You're right. I calculated with 1.2% instead of 0.2% by mistake... Embarrassed

It’s all good! Glad that you can get this info in the first place!

And 100 isn’t that big a number, is it? Lord willing, we’ll get there!

It's nice to see the OT362 CP on the Home page!

How different do you expect this to be from his NICOT commentary?

Kevin M. Adams:

How different do you expect this to be from his NICOT commentary?

To risk stating the obvious, the essential difference is that one is a university level series of lectures and the other are reference books.

I expect that the course will distill the key themes and elements of Block's research on Ezekiel and present them in an accessible, audio-visual lecture format whereas the NICOT volumes will be text-only and contain greater depth, thousands of footnotes and copious references. If you buy the NICOT volumes instead of the course then, to get an overview of the whole book of Ezekiel, you would need to read through all 1700+ pages. Technical commentaries are perfect to dip into if you to seek greater understanding of particular Bible passages but it's not a form of literature that one typically reads cover to cover. Block's technical commentaries are highly regarded in their own right yet, given the length and challenge of Ezekiel, I'm drawn to working through the book being guided by his lectures.

Another difference is that the NICOT volumes cost over $100 but the course will be $100 or less. Big Smile

From what I can tell, the green dot is a smidgen from 90% at $100. The $90 price point seems to be creeping up too, at over 80%. This course is an absolute bargain at either price Big Smile

Looking at https://www.logos.com/product/192163/mobile-ed-ot362-book-study-ezekiel I'd see it at just over 90% - Jan would need to provide the precise figures. Glad to see it's moving up (and the $90, 80, 70, 60 will automatically move along when people bid $100 - but it looks like some people bid lower than $100, so $60 is at near 60%).

EDIT: So it seems we need about 50 bids more to make it cross the line.

That's for sure.

Hmm, I may have jumped the gun a little. I changed the zoom setting on my computer and the green dot didn't look like it was at 95% yet. Still, it's been moving steadily nearer the 100% line. Maybe I'm too excited about this Embarrassed

I think it's been just the right amount of excitement, Gordon Yes

This thread has been so peaceful -- no debates over what to bid, or cheaper vs. sooner.

So glad that FL offered this course on CP! Thanks, FL!

Yes! It’s closing soon! Please, don’t nobody go crazy pulling out their bids or changing them now.  Leave it at $100! 😂 We have a better chance lowering the price by getting more bids now than by changing bids or pulling out altogether!

I'm excited, too!  I just started using courses about a month ago after using Logos daily for a year and a half.  Their value is great.
