Just in case anyone has missed it. Seems like it could easily drop to $20. Two more days left for bidding.

Just bid 20 and it went green. Maybe it will go lower yet.

Excellent - I was in at $24 but naturally am pleased with $20 - can we get it lower?

I think the original texts of several of those resources will be contained in the German base packages, so it's not worth $20 to me due to danger of purchasing duplicate content. If it drops some more, I'm gonna be in.

how so?

Even the German Gold package (warning: ugly dysfunctional page) will only contain the "Studienausgabe" books by Luther. Of course there's a German text of the small catechism in it somewhere - which some people may have in the Concordia Triglotta German - but what makes you think you will get any of the over 1400 pages of English text that are in this CP?

I don't see a full table of contents. I also assume there will be subsequent volumes in Logos 7, 8 etc German base packages, hopefully including the large catechism if not already coming with vols. 1 and 2.

Have a look at the sample pages. It's all the same well known Q&A format, possibly in different translations, and with some editorial annotations. So those 1400 pages contain the text of the small catechism 6 times already.

It needs to drop a bit more to become a good deal for me.

I think there is a possibility of this.

I love community pricing! In the week since crossing the line, we have already managed to reduce the price by 25%, from $24 to $18.

$17 is so close - just a day to go.

Thankful for projected price drop from $ 24 to $ 17, which can go lower with more community bids => https://www.logos.com/product/54510/luthers-small-and-large-catechism-with-select-commentary

If current $ 14 bids were raised to $ 16, then projected closing price would become $ 16 or less.

Why is Luther given as the only author to most of these, when it is pretty clear there have been other authors involved as well?

It's nearly closing time and it has reached $16 - 33.33% off the cross-the-line-price. 

Happy days!
