Really? That's funny.

But you know what would really be nice? Using VR on some of the videos, such as "Inside the Tomb".

I just hardly see how that is possible.

I'm sure this is a joke, but I have seen people tweeting about navigating a VR reconstruction of the temple in the last few days - I actually really liked the idea of that in Glo Bible a few years back - that wasn't VR - more like google streetview type navigation. But it could have been sorta cool. It wasn't actually that great in practice - partly due to internet speeds, partly due to fairly cheap CG images. But, y'know, interesting.

Brilliant... now I can finally feel like Tom Cruise in 'The Minority Report'! ;-)

Carpe verbum.

I have actually used my Sons VR headset with Logos already. It works great - apart form the normal steaming up inside the mask so I'm not sure it will allow us to see Gods word that clearly :-)

I thought Logos VR was all the commentaries we've already paid for that haven't been published.

Sad

It would be nice if FL would give us an update on this much delayed project, EEC.

Any thoughts about refunding our money on the items that have not been published or will never be published in our lifetime?

Well I think their original HOPED for estimate for completion was for 2023... that said I honestly do not think they have even the remotest idea when it will be done... Thomas Nelson I am sure thought WBC would be done a decade ago... but yet we still have have volumes left in the series to be done..... They obviously are having trouble finding the right people, some volumes have been a disappointment in my mind. I was a bit shocked to learn one volume was a rejected volume from by the NIC (why it was rejected and how much it got expanded for the EEC is something I don't know). The fine albeit flawed (unintended plagiarism) James volume rather than being fixed it was pulled (this may be proper protocol but for a primarily digital work I would have hoped corrections could have be made perhaps with an updated preface apologizing for the flaws of the first edition), thankfully another company has decided to release the corrected/updated volume and it may return to Logos under the new publisher.  I am not trying to fault FL/Lexham Press it is a very big project and it's a learning curve to a project this big. But I fully understand frustration. During the MM sale price I decided to dive in (I had returned the set at release after being less than impressed over all by the Ezra/Nehemiah volume, but having volumes form sale I was impressed enough with James and 1-2-3 John to decide I was willing to invest my money to help see this series continues to get developed (stuck with it now anyway as repurchases are not eligible for the 30 day refund but my eyes were wide open and i think as long as the EEC is done in a reasonable amount of time I will be happy enough).

Thanks, Dale Heath

With the dynamic pricing for volumes I had already owned it was $533.19. I think it was a 40% discount.

Dan and Dale,

The NICOT/NT was started in the 1940's.  On top of that, many volumes have been redone and some of them as many as three times and still more are to be published, with James coming out this month.  I'm not let down at all by the set and quite frankly, in regards to plagiarism, I'm not quite sure the exact circumstances with the Varner volume with James.  I did not "return" my volume and will not.  I am familiar with the situation around Peter O'Brien and his various works; to be honest, with what he is admitting to (and the scholarly world seems content with) it is rather nitpicky, to put it politely.  You'll never be able to remember where you learned everything you know, it's just about impossible.

Dan and Dale,

...with James coming out this month...  

Where does it say James’s volume is coming out this month? I think you meant Colossians, but maybe I’m missing something.

It's a Logos VR exclusive.

The conversation had switched to being about release dates for NICNT rather than EEC Dale, hence DAL's comment about Colossians being released this month.
