As many have mentioned here, the best deals to expand your library are usually the base packages. And denominational base packages have been a way to add some good books, even if it isn’t your denomination. With the sale on Logos 7 packages at the end of this month, I want to recommend the following Starter level packages.

Logos 7 Anglican Starter includes NT Wright’s conversational, New Testament for Everyone commentaries, as well as most of the Goldingay Old Testament volumes. While no commentary series is perfect, these volumes are quite good at bringing some important biblical commentators views to a non-technical audience. You may certainly have some differences from both of these authors, as do I, but to get these books in a starter package is a great deal, in my opinion.

Logos 7 Methodist and Wesleyan includes Socio-Rhetorical Commentary series, which covers most of the New Testament mostly with works by Ben Witherington III. While generally not full technical commentaries, they are much more in depth than the “for Everyone” set. Again, getting a decent modern commentary set in a Starter package is almost self-recommending.

Tired of everything in your library kind of saying the same thing? Try Logos 7 Orthodox, which includes a lot of translations of Fathers who flourished here on earth over a thousand years ago, as well as a few modern works by those who endeavor to speak these Father’s wisdom to today’s world. If for no other reasons, these writings are valuable because they have such different preconceptions than most of what is written today – and as CS Lewis pointed out, that is exceedingly valuable.

The Roman Catholic Church is the largest Christian body in the world – and quite likely the most polarizing. Verbum 7 Starter lets you see a bit of how they understand themselves. It includes how they have officially theologically defined themselves in the Denzinger, Vatican, and Vatican 2 documents, as well as how to teach it in Youcat and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. It has one of the greatest theological systems of Christian history in Aquinas’s Summa, as well as some great devotional works in Classics of Western Spirituality editions. Add in Chesterton’s Orthodoxy, some recent papal encyclicals, some books of Benedict XVI teaching the faith… It adds up to a very good meal for us Christians for not too much money.

Logos 7 Reformed Starter includes the standard English translation of Calvin’s Institutes by Battles for less than half the price of it separately. So if you do not have it and expect to ever need/want it, pick it up.

Logos 7 Lutheran includes many good historical texts, as well as the student edition of People’s History. It isn’t a bad deal, but I do like the Logos 8 version better since that one includes the one volume Luther Basic Writings, as well as all six volumes of The Annotated Luther instead of only the first two - the only ones available at the time.

Also, the P&C package has the MEV. I paid less for the whole package than I would've paid for the indivdual MEV. Good deal.

ALWAYS look at ALL of the denominational packages, especially the lower ones if you don't think you're going to be very interested in them. You can pick up some amazing bargains and useful base works that may help in with dynamic pricing on future upgrades. I did that extensively with L9 and some with L8. I'm glad to have this opportunity with L7. I got about 70 news books for around $24.

To follow up--I got the regular L7 Bronze primarily for Keil & Delitzsch's OT commentary--it's a classic, widely cited, and often a part of Logos base packages. I also wanted the Evangelical Dictionary of Biblical Theology, which normally lists for $60. I then got the Anglican Starter for the OT for Everyone series--this was the cheapest I've seen it available--the basic Exploring the O&NT series, which looks like it would be good for teaching beginner classes, and some NT Wright & John Stott stuff I didn't have. All this for just $24 and about 50 other books which are just bonus. I love deals like this.

Of course. But they are no longer on a special introductory sale. Smile

I took reformed gold because of some of Jonathan Edwards works (Blank Bible) and High Definition OT ESV edition which is no longer available for sale due to discourse data sets.  I felt incomplete in a way since I have the HDNT ESV edition and needed to have the OT also for quick references without having to turn filters on and off 👍😁👌

It might be worth checking out Morris Proctor's latest free seminar...

To elaborate, there's an additional 40% discount on L8 libraries through July 2 for MP subscribers. You need his code.

When looking at the L7 and L8 libraries, it's also worthwhile checking Verbum 7 and Verbum 8. They're separate from Logos.

I'd love to know that code. 😏 Not a subscriber though, so probably wouldn't work. 🙁

Must have missed that and now cleared by email trash. I guess this a code that can't be shared on the forums.
