No George, I mean the Logos versions that I have in my library.  The ones in the link that you obviously did not follow, but thanks for giving us a perfect example of why one shouldn't assume.  I still love you though.Big Smile

I don't see that in the Logos catalogue and the link you gave isn't to Logos.  Is that a discontinued product?

Yes, it has been discontinued for some years now.  I bought it in 2007 on discs from Logos, but I don't think it was ever available in the age of instant downloads.

Hey Michael, another aspect to this is that the previously released issues are not available on mobile apps.  Can you also find out if we can get those made available?

the answer i received when contacting sales was only a very canned response that, no, the prepub price is the best price available, and will go up in the future... followed by a very lengthy generic, canned spiel that the rep would be happy to put together a bundle of resources for me at a great (according to him) discount. i'm becoming very disillusioned with Logos.

I wouldn't get disillusioned yet.  Michael said that he would check on it, and I don't automatically expect that customer service/sales reps would have information on something as new as this.  Just wait and see what happens;  you might be pleasantly surprised.

Matthew Langlois:
And to Logos, please include ALL of the cover art!!! :)

It all depends on who owns the copyright to the photos used on the covers. The Christian History and Biography magazine was not able to grant Logos permission to use some photos in their magazines.

If something is not included it should be very clearly stated on the product page.

Super.Tramp:
What we really should be asking is if all the photos and diagrams will be included or if it is just the text.

Hopefully that includes the covers as well.

Joseph Turner:
I would be interested to know if those of us who already own the 60 volumes of Biblical Archaeologist will get a discount?

Unless they put it in the product description, don't count on it!  Many of us have over half the volumes in the Charles Hodge Collection but will have to pay $80 for the Community Pricing rate. I guess when we ask "Why do I have to pay twice for this?" Logos cam answer, "Ypi don't have to buy it in CP."

It is entirely possible dynamic pricing will be added after it ships. But the price will go up when it ships.

Maybe dynamic pricing will kick in after the resource goes into production.  That happened recently with the Steve Ray Collection.  One of the books was part of Verbum Capstone+, not the other.  Pre-Pub pricing offered no solution - the product page was silent, but once the resource became available in production for download dynamic pricing took over and provided "credit" for those that had one book but not the other.  (This thread.)  It worked out well in the end. 

Maybe that will happen here.

I imagine it will. That means you miss out on any Pre-Pub savings.

In the case of the Charles Hodge Collection (now at $149) you either buy half the titles twice at the $80 CP rate or you wait until it ships and pay more at the dynamic price. I would have no problem with this EXCEPT I am sure the CP price would have been lower if it did not include redundant titles.

First of all, thanks for your patience while I looked into this.

For those who own the now retired Biblical Archaeologist Arcive (1938–1998), which overlaps by four years with our current offering, Biblical Archaeologist / Near Eastern Archaeology (1992–2011) (20 vols.) (74 issues), dynamic pricing will be available on the latter once it moves off of pre-pub. This will ensure that owners of the former will not pay twice for any overlapped content. Please wait, however, to place your order until this new collection moves off of pre-pub to take advantage of dynamic pricing, as we currently do not offer dynamic pricing on pre-pubs.

Four years overlap?

Hope the dynamic price times the number of volumes will be less than the prepub price for the overlap.

This pre-pub should have dynamic pricing enabled now.
