Maybe, unlike most users, I find it difficult do find and setup the best guides. There is so much to choose from, I have Platinum. Having my small office library for years this is like moving amazon home overnight. I got some hints as which are good and worth trying. Some authors while great scholars, leave out the Holy Spirit.

What are some recommendations that will bring balance to studying, scholastic and ministerial without omitting the move of the Holy Spirit "The original Author and miracle worker"?

Commentaries, Exegeticals, Concordances, Dictionaries ect.

My favorite commentaries are not in the platinum edition or any edition, unfortunately, but need to be purchased separately.

Great lay person commentary: The People's Bible by NPH

Favorite Scholarly commentary: The Concordia Commentary Series (which is brand new and is coming out very slowly)/

Favorite "complete" New Testament Commentary: Lenski's Interpretation of the New Testament.

Favorite Works of one author - Luther's Works (For commentaries his Gensis lectures, Psalms and Galatians is extremely valuable) .

All of these commentaries are written by men who have the highest regard for Scripture - believing it to be the verbally inspired, all authoritative word of God.  All these commentaries are written from a Christo-centric view of Scripture (that is that all Scripture points to Jesus).

Anyway, these are my suggestions, unfortunately none of them are in packages (hence why I did not buy anything above Scholars package).

If you haven't already, you may want to consider Foundations of Pentecostal Theology ( http://www.logos.com/products/details/2473 ).

Wow, i'll look at these. I know that there must be some good ones in platinum. I too had to get my old faithfuls like Unger's which didn't come in the set. I've seen some, but it brings you back to what you're moving from if you don't know what you have. Does anyone else have the same situation like Quote? Or found others in the set.

Below is a link to either a PDF or RTF of an essay a professor of mine did back in 2002.  This gives his commentary suggestions.  When I was debating whether or not to buy the Platinum edition or stick with the scholars only  I gave him a call because he has not really dicussed the Concordia commentary.  During that November phone call he advised me to save up for Concordia, because it is extremely well done.  He said once he updates his commentary suggestions, he revised list will reflect what he told me. 

However, since you already have the Platinum edition, there are some suggested commentaries of his in there.  For the Old Testament He suggests the NAC (not for the new) and  Keil and Delitsch.  Hendriksen and Kistemaker for the New Testament is pretty solid (that is the Baker's New Testament Commentary, I believe) 

Anyway, you can read the list for yourself.  The Platinum edition does give you a lot of NT commentaries on his list.  There are his caveats that just because it is ont the list, doesn't mean that it is always theologically sound, so please read his introduction to each list carefully.
