I haven't read any of this book so I don't know, but if it were to be put in a collection, shouldn't it be a Biblical Theology collection?  Perhaps it should just be called a Baker Academic collection.  In other words, if it really doesn't fit the collection, that is one more reason why it should be sold as a single book.

This is a book you must read! It is an excellent New Testament Theology. You can see my review of it here.

I don't understand this bundle at all. Why are two books on biblical theology grouped with several on exegesis and other random titles like "Handbook of Women Biblical Interpreters"? Not a good collection Baker, not good at all.

I'll be waiting for it to get broken up.

A great review.  Sounds like it would be a great read.  A book that size would be require a commitment, but you would be glad you did.

While I agree that the bundle does not have tightly focussed topical unity, the resources are all excellent, and it does make an attractive value for the price. But, then again, the price probably puts it out of reach for the large portion of users eagerly desiring for the Beale volume.

I hope that putting this book in a bundle was the publishers request, because if not, the person at Logos who thought this was a good idea should be let go. How many more people would jump at this if it were a stand alone purchase.

The price is only attractive if you want those resources. I don't doubt that each resource is useful for its context, but who is in the market for an ethics text and Beale's text at the same time?

Baker is going to miss out on a bunch of sales by forcing Logos into this ill-conceived bundle.

Agreed. 

I'll look forward to when this bundle is broken.

It's  $35 on Amazon. The $210 price tag will keep me from owning it until ( and if) is is ever make available individually.

My thoughts as well.

I agree, and I think that this borders on price gouging.  The argument will be that the publisher is forcing the book to be sold as part of the set, but I don't understand why Logos seems to be the only digital book company that has to sell in sets.  A different digital Bible publisher sells NICOT/NICNT and NIVAC individually, and this has bothered me for a long time.  How are they able to negotiate individual sells, and on a less robust and mainstream platform, than Logos can?  I would think that Logos would be in a much better position to negotiate than the other company.  This is just not logical.

I guess I should count my blessings, because if Logos changes its model to offer all books individually, then I will be in a lot of financial turmoil!

I'm probably in the same boat. There are a ton of purchases I'm not making because the resources are locked away in bundles. The bundles prevent me from breaking the bank because they prevent me from buying at all.

Would love to read it or use it for research, but not at that price for the bundle.  Sad

Agreed! Forget the bundle.  I'm only interested in Beale's title.  The rest would be "useless" to me.  Sometimes I wonder about the sale "strategy" or "request" of certain publishers.  At least Zondervan has made a lot of their titles available individually.  We'll have to wait and see.  :-(

Mine too. I would love to have the electronic version of this book, but I will not buy it as long as it is available only in a bundle.
