Works of A. J. Maas:
I'm in for $25.
Noted Catholic author and exegete A. J. Maas' two-volume Christ in Type and Prophecy has been a standard reference concerning the prophecies in the Old Testament foretelling the coming of the Christ for over 100 years. Catholic and Protestant scholars alike have mined Maas' work on the Old Testament, which brings out the truth that the whole life of Jesus Christ has been the object of prophetic vision and divine revelation from the very beginning.
The Works of A. J. Maas (4 vols.) also contains The Life of Jesus Christ According to the Gospel History, Maas' harmony of the Gospels into one continuous story, as well as A Day in the Temple, Maas' in-depth look at the sacrificial services and Temple-rites which prevailed in Jerusalem at the time of Jesus' arrival.
Like his commentary on Matthew, these works belong in the library of every preacher, teacher, and student of the Bible. With the Logos Bible Software edition all Scripture passages in The Works of A. J. Maas (4 vols.) are tagged and appear on mouse-over. This makes these resources more powerful and easier to access than ever before for scholarly work or personal Bible study. With the advanced search features of Logos Bible Software, you can perform lightning-quick searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of "son of man" or "Daniel 7:13–14."
Dean053:I'm in for $25.
I'm in at $20
OK ... it's Wednesday afternoon. Have to be careful.
I was perusing the CP's and I was surprised by this volume. It seems like just 'maybe' it could set a new record on people carefully underbidding, so as to insure it remains in CP.
I think to get the really SPECIAL AWARD, a few more $30 and $35's could bid but NOT $40's. This is key.
Then if the $25's and maybe $30's could bid, it would be a flat 'almost there' easily THREE price points and maybe FIVE!!!
Dean has the good write-up above, but be careful to underbid. Don't want this little puppy to slip into production and miss out on the big award party!

Oh great. A bunch of party-poopers bid $30. I suppose now the $25 bidders will crash the party too.
By the way, if you enjoy the Dead Sea Scrolls collection and the discussion of what should be 'clean' (Jerusalem, the Temple, the Holy of Holies, etc), Maas has an interesting discussion. You can read it in the sample #7 of the Temple volume.
If you look at the harmony volume, also, you'll see a unique treatment of the temple as if you're there first person. I never made the connect of the Solomon Portico and the ruins of the Solomon temple beneath.
You'll be missing a good collection if you don't bid on this between now and next Friday.
Not discussing theology(!): the Maas volumes caught my eye due to the discussion of whether fowls were allowed in Jerusalem (and thus the Peter 'cock crowing' accounts).
I am in at $20.
