The value of the unowned resources shows as $39.24 but the cost of the product is $85.14 with dynamic pricing Hmm.

One possibility is that the individual resources are on sale (but the bundle is not), as the disclaimer mentions. When the sale is over, they would probably be priced higher than the bundle price.

Another possibility is to try unchecking Hide resources I own, to see if there are any other resources included in that price.

It looks like the Ugaritic Textbook is normally $65.99, and the Ugaritic-Hebrew philology is $12.99, which would be $78.98, so it still doesn't work out exactly right, but closer.

I own this collection, so everything shows up as regular price.  My sold separately value is $398.90, while my collection cost is $429.99.  Also, it is a 12 volume set, but there are only 10 volumes.  This whole collection needs to be checked out by someone at Logos.

The discount on the collection (whether it is from the sale and/or dynamic pricing and/or academic pricing) is greater however like in this example from https://www.logos.com/product/3648/introduction-to-the-old-testament-collection

The one resource I would get is lower in price than that of the "collection". Check now that resource's page here https://www.logos.com/product/7607/ugarit-and-the-old-testament

There is a smaller discount on the individual resource but the collection is more expensive.

That would be the not on sale price? If so, how could that be the price of the collection which IS on sale?

If you hover over the Discount Price/Dynamic Sale Price, does it break out the Academic discount separately?

My guess is that the book is more steeply academically discounted (52%) than the collection, which makes it cost less for you.

Ugarit and the Old Testament is $21.99 for me, but the collection is only $17.04, so non-academics save more by buying the bundle.

Good call! That is the case indeed. Thanks!

I initially thought the same thing about the resources, but it appears that the Ugartic Textbook is possibly 3 volumes. So, that would give you your 12.

I don't know if Mark Barnes suggestion would work for you here or not, but in a nutshell: 

If you find a resource or package with a higher percentage discount, it is typically better to purchase that FIRST. In most cases that should lower the cost of the greater collection/package by a greater percentage, making your total cost less. 

I have used this method a number of times with various base packages and/or libraries.
