At the beginning of Holy Week 2015 you put a whole bunch of Jacob Neusner bundles on prepub, with a considerable extra discount for those who ordered before Good Friday. 

I found it rather thoughtless for a Christian company to choose that of all weeks for such a time consuming promotion, so, as I refused to waste several hours of that sacred time on evaluating packages, I simply ordered everything that was even remotely interesting, leaving the evaluation for later. I doubt I was alone. Pastors don’t have much time that week either.

Then, less than a year later, you cancelled all the minor bundles for ’lack of interest’, but kept the master bundle. That made absolutely no sense at all at the time, and it still doesn’t. If you produce the master bundle, then, obviously, you also produce everything included in the minor bundles, so why refuse to sell them???

Now the master bundle is a week away from shipping, and there is no way I’m going to spend $300 on it, even though it’s a good price. If, however, you were to reinstate the minor bundles, with the prices I and others originally ordered them for, I might buy one of those. No guarantees – I’m short on funds – but even if I don’t, it’s still the right thing to do, both for your customers and for yourselves. I doubt you'll sell many master bundles for the full price, but you may sell some minor ones.

Btw, the product page for the master bundle still assumes that the minor bundles exist, and that we can go to their product pages to read about the individual books (and see sample pages). We can’t do that on the existing page, which makes it very hard for people who weren’t around in 2015 to decide if they’re interested enough to buy – as several people have complained about.
