Christ-Centered Preaching, Commentary on New Testament Use of Old (I already had bought this at a higher price), and the Dicitonary for Theological Interpretation of the Bible! 

I love the Exposition on Prayer in the Bible too, but the $159.95, while a good value, is not amazing for the resource. Nevertheless, I've very much enjoyed owning it since I picked it up on prepub

Christ-Centered Preaching - I have a few others books on preaching in print but wanted at least one good preaching book in Logos for quick access.

Kingdom of Priests - looked like a good OT survey (see also above reason).

WBC - $6.5/volume is amazing; though I don't think I'll agree with all the authors, there's enough conservative authors and enough valuable content from the rest that it's well worth the price.

Ryan, I thought you guys put together some great deals for Christmas this year. Most of them I already had; these are my picks (either for the great price or because I view the resource as essential for study):

  1. Word Biblical Commentary--fantastic price
  2. Commentary on the NT Use of the OT
  3. The Essential IVP Reference Collection, Version 3
  4. AYBD

I did purchase "Kingdom of Priests"--it was on my list of books to get and the price was right. I also purchased the "Dictionary for Theological Interpretation." At the time Baker's Hermeneutics Collection was on pre-pub I didn't have the cash for it. In cases like that I usually wait to get the individual volumes I want once they are for sale. I was happy to get it at 1/2 price. Great job again. Yes

Kingdom of Priests and Jesus in Context. Jesus in Context looks like it will be a great time saver and Kingdom of Priests because I enjoy history.

Except for Exposition on Prayer, I already owned the other works.

I think you guys did a great job picking useful works and I am sure everyone enjoyed it.

Can't wait for March Madness!!!

I purchased the Commentary on the NT Use of the OT. Hoping it'll be a good study/sermon preparation resource for me...

Best  new resource for me was Dictionary for Theological Interpretation of the Bible. Good hermeneutical articles and summaries of how to approach the message of each Bible book.

I already had Word Biblical Commentary, Commentary on NT Use of OT, and Essential IVP Reference Collection. Strongly recommend these: I use these every week.

Also bought Centered Preaching: Redeeming the Expository Sermon for teaching homiletics this semester, but haven't dived in yet.

Found The Drama of Scripture a bit lightweight. Didn't buy the Anchor Yale Bible Dictionary, as I use the ISBE.

Thanks, Logos, for the opportunity to add good resources, and the fun of this promotion.

Nothing here either - had them all, but I suspect that for many longtime users with a lot of resources, it would be difficult to find something with wide appeal.  Perhaps a one time deal with a certain percent off, or a dollar amount?  Anyway, we have benefited from multiple good deals in the past.

Longtime Logos user (more than $30,000 in purchases) - now a second class user because I won't pay them more every month or year.

The best deal that I did not get is the Word Biblical Commentary, but I  have it in another program.  How spoiled am I, it almost seems like having a resource in another program is like not having the resouce. I have to admit I am spoiled by Logos, it makes things so much easier and faster to get too!

Still I do not have 400.00 to spend to shift it to Logos, but I did get the Commentary on the NT use of the OT, and the Dictionary for Theological Interpretation of the Bible, plus I got nearly 400 new books when I upgraded last month from Libronix 3 Gold to Logos 4 Platinum, so I have done really well!

On top of all this I can hardly wait for the Tyndale Commentaries to come out very soon!

But with all of these resources, I am learning more day by day ,that Christ is my real resource, the one I need and can't manage without!!!

In Christ,

Jim

I'm afraid that the WBC deal was too much for me! But I did stretch for "The Drama of Scripture", "Jesus in Context"; "Dictionary for Theological Interpretation" & "Kingdom of Priests" of which "Kingdom of Priests" is my favourite.

I also got "A Christmas Carol" - so it all sounds a lot but it still not as nearly as much as the WBC. Oh well! Maybe next year!!!!!! Smile

Already had:

IVP Reference Collection

Picked up:

Commentary of the NT use of the OT

Jesus in Context

Dictionary for Theological Interp

Tempted by:

Christ Centered Preaching

Kingdom of Priests

Extremely Tempted by:

Anchor Yale (I have to pull the trigger sometime today if I want it...I fear what my fingers will make me do)

Question: For those who picked up 'Kingdom of Priests', is it much different than other OT surveys/histories? I have Platinum and was thinking about picking up 'Kingdom of P' but already have many other OT surveys.  Was it worth the purchase?

Also, is 'Christ Centered Preaching' worth picking up? I already own 'Art and Craft of Bib Preaching' and 'Bib Preaching' both by  Haddon Robinson in print and it looks as though 'Christ Centered Preaching' is much of the same content as Robinson's.  Worth it?

Thanks.

Amazon has excellent reviews on Kingdom of Priests.  It depends on which other OT surveys you have.  It would be similar to Leon Wood's "History of Israel."  Merrill's Kingdom of Priests will also be more conservative than some other OT surveys.  Also, it is a history of Israel, as opposed to Archer's "Survey of the OT" or similar works.  So a slightly different focus.

I picked up Christ Centered Preaching because all my other main preaching books are print editions vs. electronic.  I read Robinson in college but it's been a while.  I spoke with a pastor at my church who has taken some classes from Chapell, and he said the 2nd edition of Christ Centered Preaching is more balanced - shows the importance of relating Christ to Scripture, ie OT passages, without forcing it into the text.  Probably a good book to read for a slightly different approach from Robinson, but I haven't had a chance to read through my Logos copy yet.

Yep, Bill

We are in the same boat.  As it turns out I did go a little wild this Christmas. Wink I went from Original Languages L3 to Platinum L4 with HALOT. Surprise but I did jump at the Christmas Carol  (after all its a classic and I have 4 quarters laying here someplace Smile.  I have seen the Movie but wanted the original thing.

Christmas Carol 

Thought about it... but I don't use L3 or L4 as a reader (still like paper for that), only for research....  So, <sigh> just put a lot on my "I'm dreamin' of" list... and will release it to the Lord to make it affordable some day.

Blessings!

Grace & Peace,
Bill
