There are no regional discounts in Logos, but there are great opportunities for anyone to get resources at low prices through sales and community pricing.

If you have a machine with sufficient capacity and RAM, speed should not be an issue in Logos 5. It was in previous versions of Logos, but not in L5.

It is a joy to work with you all in getting SDA products into Logos. I'm happy to say that the all Logos base packages (including the upcoming SDA base packages) have dynamic pricing, which means that if you already own resources therein your cost will be reduced accordingly.

HI you are right: If I open just Logos it has the results in less than a second.

But If I open many things (logos, word, some other softwares, firefox using internet, playing music, ...) in the same time with Logos, then it takes some more seconds to do the search

When I increased my RAM from 4 to 8, my searching really sped up.

Hi Martin

I like what you are doing in Logos for us to have Adventist resources.

My concern is that, even cheap as sometimes it can be, the place where I will go back and work (and so many other countries with small salaries) very very few will be able to afford Logos if it is not subsidized.

If you want to know more and/or to talk in private, I would be glad to send you an email

Hi all, I'm brand new to Logos and have been doing a LOT of reading and researching about what to purchase and how the purchasing process works, but I still have some confusions and questions I cannot find answers to.

1 )  I want to get the SDA Expanded Bible Commentary, but after reading this thread I'm concerned an even better, newer package will become available soon. Is this a real concern? Or will I get a free update to my bundle should an improved version come out later?

2 )  Also, a general question, am I correct in understanding that if I wish to buy a book bundle that contains some books I already own, that the bundle price will automatically decrease to account for the books I already own? That would be pretty cool.

3 )  I've also seen discussion about the SDA Expanded Bible Commentary not yet being tagged and or having scripture reference links. Has this been updated yet? Or is it still in the works?

4 )  In a nutshell, should I just buy the SDA Expanded Bible Commentary now? Or wait for an improved version or something altogether better?

So many questions, I know. But thanks all! I'm very excited about using this great tool!

Wonder if I should hold off on purchasing sda resources  with the sda package coming out?

Dynamic pricing reduces cost but it never drops the full amount, which is understandable of course since they are already lowering cost.

But when one has purchase most of the sda products, one might actually be paying more in the long run

Welcome to the forums CJ.

There is no guarantee that the Bible Commentary will be included in a base package.

If you buy the Expanded version, and it is updated with links, the new version will be free.

We do not know what will be in the base packages, and there will probably be more than one base package. You do get discounts for what you own, but not the full price, as the cost of the base packages is not the full cost of all the books combined.

I would encourage you to join this group, as you may find some information here that may be of assistance. https://faithlife.com/seventh-day-adventist/activity

You guys are quick, thanks for the answers! I am now incredibly anxious for these packages to be unveiled.

I would love to see the SDA base package have: SDA Minister's Manual, SDA Church Manual, EGW Encyclopedia, Bible Commentaries, Light Bearers, as well as other Pioneer Writings- like Lessons on Faith. I affirm what Logos is doing in working with our church! I think there is so much potential to get this in all of our conferences and SDA colleges. I'm at the seminary now and I know a lot of my fellow classmates are excited about the upcoming base packages!

Catch 22 [from a book of that name] if SDA Resources do not sell will there be a SDA package coming out?

In other words: If a large number of SDA Resources do not sell at CP, Pre Pub, or full price will Logos allow a SDA Package to be offered?  Will there be resources available for it?  Or will Logos offer SDA [Or Orthodox, etc] packages if they do not see the advance sales of resources?

In other words if we stop buying now will Logos offer 'things' for us latter?

Most of the SDA CP offerings aren't doing so great.  I don't think there's much demand for old magazine articles or church manuals.  If it's incorporated into the base package I think there will be more excitement over them (knowing that it's there), instead of bidding individually for them (trying to get things one may never read).      Important to remember that most of SDA CP offerings have not been requested.  And regarding AR and Liberty, I believe we had more in mind current issues.

PrePub - i think just about all SDA resources had made it through (with the exception of Gulley's - EDIT - just noticed it's underdevelopment).  So it's clear that Adventist Logos users will buy SDA resources.

I don't think the SDA Bible Commentary will be in any of our base packages, at least initially. The resource was tagged a decade ago by the publisher with open source code from Logos in the now long-outmoded Libronix format. It needs to be completely retagged, which is a huge expense and also involves serious contractual challenges too complex to iterate here. I'm in discussions about it (as of last week), but even the best scenario isn't anytime soon. I'll keep you updated when there is anything to report.

You are correct, David, that a lot of the SDA resources on CP are struggling for funding. I will say that all of them have been requested, or I would not have had them posted. There are other resources (books frequently mentioned on this forum) that I much prefer over such items as Life & Health and the SDA Church Manual, but we do not yet have licensing for them and thus cannot post them. It's a complex situation requiring constant nurturing, which is certainly going on behind the scenes. Prospects are good but things take their time. I appreciate your encouragement and prayers.

Thank you, Edwin. It's my privilege to be your servant at Logos. I appreciate your prayers for my ministry here as your SDA representative, and I pray that God will bless all of you in your own vital ministry for Him. Someday soon we will all be together in heaven. I wonder what technology there will be for us to review the history of the Great Controversy and see how God has intervened for human salvation--and in each of our lives individually as royal servants commissioned Jesus in heaven's sanctuary--the human resource center of the universe.

Hi!

Any news on that? Is anything coming out the end of this year?
