Thank you, Stephen and Logos, for the 50% off discount today on this collection. I would buy it if it could be used through Biblia.com, but I see it isn't available for the iPhone which usually means it isn't available on Biblia.com

I don't have the full collection.  But 6 of the 9 Piper resources I do own show up on biblia.com.  I wonder why they aren't all available.

Edit: it's the books from Multnomah Publishers that aren't available.  The Crossway, Christian Focus, and Baker published ones are available on biblia.com

Stephen, i do not think the coupon code is working properly.  I added the Piper collection to my cart and it showed $199.  I applied the given coupon, and it only lowered it to $179.90.  Please help!

179.90 IS 50% off of the RETAIL price.

Because the coupon code is for the retail price not the sale price.

Pretty shady if you ask me....

It's "50% off retail".  And the "retail" price is $359.  The $199 price is the normal "Sale" price.

I think Logos should change their marketing to "% off regular sale price" to avoid confusion and the feeling of deception.

Agree - and if it had been 50% off "normal selling price" that would have been a really good deal!

Dear John Piper,

Congratulations on turning 65! I pray that God will give you many more years of fruitful ministry. I owe an incalculable debt to you. I started reading your books in earnest on the subway in Tokyo. They transformed those trips on crowded trains into delightful journeys into the truth of God's word. Also, your sermons on the Internet sustained and encouraged me during my years in Japan when I didn't attend an English-speaking church. Thank you so much. I hope to see you in person when you visit Australia later this year.

Simon Pleasants

PS. We share the same birthday!

I have made a habit of supporting Logos when others have criticized the company's marketing practices, but you are making it very difficult. This is really no sale at all.

I was really disappointed by this "sale." Kind of a cheap shot on Logos' part.
