How do I find out what is in this package?    My dynamic price is $144.

This package is only intended for purchase by SHMS students, so it's not findable by search (and thus doesn't have a robust product page). I'll message you with more details about what's in it.

I once made a script to retrieve the contents of old base packages.

Logos Bible Software Old Base Package Contents (heidoc.net)

It works for this one too (although it's not old). Just paste the product ID (188039).

That would explain this then...

Thank you Donald,

Very interesting to see the list.  I have most of the books that are in there.  

Just an idea, perhaps the Verbum staff should think about making some type of a "student" package (similar to the SHMS one) available for anyone to purchase.   There are more seminaries with more students out there, as well as alumni like me.

Peace be with you...

I think of Biblicum as meeting these requirements ....

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Biblicum is $2500 on sale now for $2100. Probably a great package for a Masters Degree student.
The SMHS package was about $250 (?). Not comparable for a beginning theology student, in terms of price or needed books .

This package for $10 was a sweet deal for beginners but disappeared quickly.

Keep looking, there are probably more custom packages hidden on the website or maybe they learned their lesson about security through obscurity.

I'm hoping for a Verbum 9 Clergy Starter package. The Verbum 8 one was (I think) very well designed for its target audience--clergy--and, of course, seminarians are future clergy, unless already transitional deacons.

EDIT: I notice that neither Antonius nor MJ nor I recalled the Verbum 9 Academic packages. In my case, it is because I am well aware that many (most?) priests in the English-speaking world have never, ever done work in Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic, or Syriac, and that if they have, it likely wasn't in seminary, and if it was in seminary, there probably wasn't much and they probably haven't done any since. Likewise most Catholics enrolled in or who have completed an MDiv, MTS, MA, or other first degree in theology. The Verbum 9 Academic line is targeted at Catholics who study those languages; it is not as helpful for Catholics who don't.

We have a line of academic packages:

They focus on biblical studies, particularly original languages. We've considered making a similar line for academic theology.

And quite a good deal too (for OL). My Libronix OL package in 2005 cost me $350 or so (been a couple years ago). L9 Academic Essentials at $499 is quite impressive ... far more than 2005 resources/features. No major lexicons, but adding the BDAG/HALOT combo is a no-brainer.

The academic packages truly squealed as the fluff was squeezed out.

I would be interested in that.
