I'm confused about the MacArthur Essential Bible Study Library (http://www.logos.com/products/prepub/details/5833). I already have all of these resources that I picked up in other MacArthur collections.

How are these any different? 

If they aren't why are they in prepub?

I recommend these to new users so they can pick up some inexpensive resources to try out, and yes they are compiled from the MacArthur Collections.

Probably because it's a new collection of existing resources.  Nelson does this all the time. Also, Pre-pub is not just for measuring the demand anymore.  It seems almost all new products go there..

I vaguely recall a thread in the old newsgroups on this; and you're correct.  But the beauty of Pre-pub is that the stuff is paid for when it ships.  It eliminates the need to develop and hope that someone buys. The resulting liquidity means that Logos keeps operating and is able to accelerate production of all items.

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.

Except perhaps for "third party" stuff like this Nelson collection (an similarly with Zondervan and others), which are offered when already apparently in production so they are just offering us a discount it would seem....
