I know MJ's probably going to ding me (again).  Positive, Denise, positive!!

But I was busily reading my new Lenski, who panned Bengel for over-interpreting the greek and thereby calculating the end of time.

So being the naive person that I am, I read about Bengel on Wikipedia which led me to his Gnomen. That rang a bell on Logos, and indeed Logos has Bengel's 5 volume Gnomen of the NT.

The collection seemed overly expensive ($250; again an older set from an almost even 250 years ago).

But then I noticed the sum of the individual volumes was a definite savings: $150.

Now, I had previously achieved major savings, where the collection was cheaper than even a single volume. I thought I knew Logos' ingenious way of pricing. Now I'm really confused!

Not to mention probably Bengel was on CP for $25? (Keeping consistent with Bengel's '25' habit.)

maybe you should add "Bug" to you thread title. Obviously the individual titles as well as the collection are stated at "retail prices" (however they are otherwise defined - in Bengel's books there are no others prices on the pages). As Logos themselves say here http://www.logos.com/product/10182/gnomon-of-the-new-testament-volume-3-romans-and-1-and-2-corinthians

LOGOS:
 Wait! You can get this volume and the rest of Gnomon of the New Testament together at a $100 discount from retail prices!

Which means, the calculation should have been: take 5 times 30 (the individual retail prices) and substract 100. What somebody did was  take 5 times 30 (the single prices) and add 100  - so they should stand to their word and put the Gnomon collection at $50 (I'll buy in an instant)

At $50, I'd buy!! $150 is higher than Lenski (per volume) who at least referenced him. $250 for 5 volumes is equal to a modern commentary.

I really wish (!) they'd use their great systems guys to just dump their collections vs single volumes, apply some sort of rule and move on. Each time I shop, I've learned to always do multiple searches just in case they've screwed up something.

I edited the title though not sure it's a bug. I'm exhausted!

It isn't a Bug, it's a rip-offSmile  Contact Sales.

Yes, it was on my long list (I was hoping to see it as part of a Master Collection 2011). Thanks Denise for doing the calculating and Thanks Bradley for the new pricing. It is in my cart now...

Now when is that Christmas Logos Cash program starting???  Open ... Open ... Open... Big Smile
