Is there an easy way to tell if everything in this collection:

https://www.logos.com/product/9653/nelson-bible-reference-bundle

is in this collection?

https://www.logos.com/product/20187/nelson-501-book-bundle

Thanks!

No it is not, since the reference collection has no "this title is included....." section as you can see below other resources have.

But for your interest, I have looked at the differences before and I would say hardly anything interesting is missing in the 501 book unlock...

Sounds good. So what would be your recommendation to purchase down the road when it comes time to purchase?

Thanks!

I have the Nelson-501 and Nelson-bible reference is greyed out, so the Nelson-bible-reference bundle must be a subset of Nelson-501.

Nathan,     I do not have any "insider information" but there were some musings in the forums of whether or not the Nelson 501 book unlock would continue to be offered. Zondervan's parent company bought Nelson. For some reason they don't try to sell much.

The Nelson 501 Book Bundle no longer has dynamic pricing!  When it did, my upgrade price was only $156. I did not buy it. No way am I paying $2000 for something I already own most of.

For shame. This is really a step back for customers.

Why do I get the feeling that Zondervan is not owned by Christians, but by greedy, worldly people who are just trying to make money out of religion? (1 Timothy 6:5)

Ps. FYI 501 bundle has most of Charles Stanley and David Jeremiah's books which the Nelson's Reference Bundle doesn't have.  Plus other minor extra books that you probably wouldn't want.  I had consider buying the 501 bundle myself, but after seeing the upgrade price for the new resources, there was no way I was going to pay over 100 bucks to have Stanley's books.  I have some and the David Jeremiah's collection books (both collections sold by Logos) and that's all I need.  You're not really missing anything.

It is a shame they're no longer offering Dynamic Pricing. I seriously hope they'll reconsider. I own all the Stanley and Lucado books a good chunk of books from back when I used eBible, NEBRL, etc. I already "paid twice" for certain books back then when upgrading to eBible. Paying again would be rough.

By the way, I know Charles Stanley has a collection of his books on here, and I think the Jeremiah collections are still available. If you wanted Stanley and Jeremiah, you could easily add those to Nelson Reference Bundle for probably less than the 501 unlock. I was able to top off my Stanley collection dirt cheap since it was dynamically priced when I got it.

The Nelson 501 Book Unlock had dynamic pricing. When they changed the name to

the Nelson 501 Book Bundle, it lost the dynamic pricing.

The product SKU# did not change. Maybe they just forgot to enable dynamic pricing. I will try to find out if this is the case.

I've looked at this several times. If you have WBC and maybe one or two lesser libraries like the MacArthur and David Jeremiah, there's really not much meat left.
