i like a lot of them.  I have a lot of them.  I voted. I am surprised Black's commentaries are not scoring higher. 

I like Apples.  Especially Honeycrisp.

I'm kind of happy the selection is what it is. At least I won't have to fret over how to pay for more books.  Smile

Every cloud has a silver lining, no?

My problem is that when I find something interesting, I also realize that I already own it (such as Waltke & O'Connor).

That's funny. As I perused some of the other titles I was interested in, I checked my library and found them already there. It appears that I will be spending less money. (And then I wondered, why I wasn't already reading them...)

Same here. It is very disappointing!

Not really...at least others get to have fun and I get to vote for the heck of it...hehehe.  I'll probably get Lenski's volume on Mark for his excellent defense of Mark's longest ending and Soci-Rhetorical on Acts...I want to see what this Soci thing is all about.  I've read good reviews by several.  The important thing is not about winning but about playing the game.

Maybe that's because people picked up Black's during the Christmas sale? I know I picked up a number of volumes then.

No doubt the quality of the March Madness sale is down.  Could it be that Logos is not putting as much emphasis on these annual expected sales, but going to a different sales strategy? 

There seems to be frequent offerings of great resources at a bargain price, but not 75% off.  Maybe Logos feels these more frequent sales, where they control the discount, is a more profitable sales strategy.

Maybe - but it is not nearly as fun. Smile

Please vote for Martin Hengel's "Studies in Early Christology"!

Hengel's studies have been nothing less than groundbreaking in New Testament scholarship and belong to the finest contributions to theology on a high academic level that have been made in the last decades. It's hard to find anything else this profound on this issue.

Unfortunately, academic books from originally non-English speaking countries are often very expensive, so 'March Madness' could make a real difference here! As for now, Berkhof's Systematic Theology is on top of the voting list - and while there's nothing wrong with that (on the contrary), remember it goes back to 1938, you get it at an already cheaper price, and it is mostly of interest for people belonging to Reformed churches, whereas titles like Hengel's are crucial for everyone who wants to do studies on this important issue, no matter what confessional background one has.

Very little to get even mildly enthusiastic about in this list.

If you want that, why didn't you buy it for 50% off during Christmas? 

Theolobias:

Berkhof is the only book in the Theology section that wasn't in the 50% off Christmas Deal. Plus it was the only Berkhof book that wasn't in the Master Collection. There's bound to be quite a few people who want their Berkhof collection complete. (Admittedly, it was on the 12 Days, though, so they could still have bought it for a good price, but I imagine many Master's buyers didn't have any money left for it at that time.)

Theolobias:

In case you haven't noticed: "Reformed" churches are much bigger and more frequent in America than in Europe!

(Actually, I did vote for Hengel, but only because I used some spare votes to promote 'good' books, hoping they'd sell at least a few copies more if they're cheaper. If it begins to threaten 'my' OT and NT books, I'll turn against it!

Because it was around Christmas I bought my first L4 base package (before that I was only using the SESB with L4) and I simply wasn't aware that there had been a sale for Hengel's book.

Good point.

Big Smile I'm pretty much aware of this fact and, even though I belong to a Lutheran church and have a Wesleyan background, I studied under some of Europe's leading Reformed theologians - so, nothing against Berkhof! However, the case is still the same: exegetical studies on Christology could address an even wider group of people than the already pretty big community of American Reformed denominations and churches.

Yep. A little breathing room for the pre-pubs I have coming.

Then you missed out on 2.010 books at 50% off -- or $1 each if you bought all of them! Unfortunately 44 out of the 64 books now was in that deal as well, which is why so many complain they can't find anything they want.

I thought you were. I should have put a Stick out tongue at the end.

It got my vote - currently it's hanging on to seventh place so hopefully will make it to the next round

Well, I wish I had 2.010 dollars to spend on books ... Sleep

No hard feelings! Stick out tongue

My feeling as well... was hard to find even 1 volume in some lists to vote for... Looks like March sanity for me... no madness.

Grace & Peace,
