Ken thank you! That was extremely helpful. Also thanks to MJ, Fr Devin and fgh. Indeed, a comparison chart with the other Logos Patristic works will be also utterly helpful!

Steve:
Fr. Devin, Thank you for your ministry.  Please know that we pray for you and your service to our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus.
Yes

I wonder if anyone has made a chart of what writings are available in which series.

fgh, I started to, but I ran into some difficulty actually comparing the contents of each author in each series. Many times the titles, and even author names, are different for whatever reason, and not having the volumes on hand at home made it difficult to go back and forth with them all to make sure everything is accurate.

Maybe one of these days I'll get the motivation to complete it, as I have access to both sets in the same library, but probably not for awhile!

Hopefully this set will be split up into indicidual volumes! I'm not able to read everything in this huge set, but there are many I would purchase individually!

Sadly the 30 volumes from Augustine excludes the vast expositions on Psalms.

The series is still in progress - there's always hope.

Here's to hoping New City Press's Works of Augustine make it into Logos soon!

Amen!

I think I've made or seconded that request/hope a few times over the years.

Speaking of which, I would welcome observations/comments from any forum readers that have sampled or even fully read all or a large portion of the first volume of the City of God translation in that series, which was release in 2012. Particularly interesting would be any opinions regarding how well the translation stacks up against other/older translations.

I would love it!  But the simple truth is that I cannot possibly afford it right now.  One day, hopefully.  Angel

Glad it is available in Logos.

A perfectly fine decision. I'm still on the fence myself. It is certainly a lot of money.

Curious, what do you mean?

Ships in two weeks.

Pad your wallets.

Get ready to read all 40,000+ pages.

I honestly think this will be some of the best Logos $$$$ (4 $ signs intended) I spend ever.

Sad though that the much smaller Jonathon Edwards set has been under development for many more months, perhaps over a year, longer than this and yet we have no shipping date for Edwards yet. I expected Edwards sooner than this since the online digital version already exists.

Oh my! Thanks for the heads up. Good thing I just paid off more than my last statement balance on my credit card (to cover charges since the statement came out).

Thank you for the alert. It looks like I've almost run out of time to save seventeen hundred CAN$. Oh well. If you have it, don't miss the opportunity!

Randy Lane:
Ships in two weeks.

Logos: I'm glad it's ready to ship -- but two weeks' notice for a $1,559.95 resource? Really? I doubt I'm the only one who finds that very inconsiderate to your customers, and I suspect it will also be rather detrimental for your bottom line. I imagine you will get quite a few cancellations and lose quite a few last minute orders. Lots of people can't come up with that kind of money in two weeks, least of all just before the summer vacations. "Sorry kids, I just cancelled our trip to Xyz in order to buy these books instead" doesn't go down very well in most families... And to add to that you also pretty much drowned us in prepubs and new packages during April and May, presumably emptying more than one wallet and bank account.

I'm lucky in that I don't live from month to month, so for me personally it doesn't much matter when something ships or when I'm notified -- as long as I  don't find my account suddenly emptied while I'm traveling. But most people aren't in my position, so the more expensive a prepub is, the longer the advance warning needs to be, even if it's just a 'Q2'. For your own sake as well as ours. Suggestion now that it is what it is: allow people to save this prepub for 6 months. I think you'll sell more that way. I doubt many people will order it for the full price.

Otherwise, my personal concern is trying to guess whether this collection will turn up in 'Verbum 6 Portfolio' for about $250 in a year or two. I'm tired of financing prepubs that others can then buy for a fraction of the price I paid.

Did you ever get anywhere with this?
