Don’t buy this: https://www.logos.com/product/50197/hearing-the-message-of-scripture-commentary-series

Buy this instead: https://www.logos.com/product/144091/zondervan-exegetical-commentary-on-the-old-testament

Rational: The former series got cancelled and it has the commentary on Obadiah that got rebranded and reformatted as ZECOT on Obadiah by the same author (Block). The latter is basically the same issue, since the commentary on Jonah was also part of the other series that got cancelled and has now been rebranded ZECOT on Jonah by the same author (Young).

The hearing the Message volumes should be taken off the market IMHO.

You don't need to worry. In Logos, both collections contain identical volumes (except the ZECOT set also contains Ruth, of course). So if you buy the three-volume set, Logos knows you own the two-volume set. If you look carefully, on the two-volume set, you'll see that on the righthand sidebar it says "also part of the following collections".

If you own all the NT volumes, it's cheaper to buy this set:

Than the 3 volume set above.

It's also cheaper to buy the whole set if you're missing just Ruth and John, which was the case with me. I thought I'd try buying the smaller set first to get Ruth for only $15.60, which was less than half the price Faithlife was offering me for the full set, so I thought maybe the dynamic price of the full set would be better for me *after* I'd acquired Ruth. But that was a mistake. The new dynamic price was $21.76, so in total I paid $37.36 for two volumes, whereas if I'd sprung for the full set immediately I could have had it for $35.87. Oh well. I'm not going to call Faithlife asking for my $1.49 back.

Thanks, Mark! That’s good to know 👍😁👌
