Meh 😕 I wish it would’ve included BAGD, then it would’ve been worth $45.  I think I’ll pass!

Pass ... another century old package filler.

Not interested. And it's not likely to succeed any time soon. They've only got about 15% of the bids they'd need for it to go into production. When it says your bid "will likely succeed at $45" it means that if and when this goes over the top of having enough orders for it to be worth producing, it will most likely be at this peak price which is where most of the orders so far have come in, and so your bid price is high enough. But you'll probably still have to wait a looooooong time for there to be enough bids. Could be years.

Yes

Meanwhile, Jesus kept on growing wiser and more mature, and in favor with God and his fellow man.

Thank you for explaining. Yes

I put a bid in for now. I think the only real issue is whether this will actually fully link to BDAG. When stuff connects in Logos, it's great. When it doesn't, it becomes a pain.

HMM. Seems you might need to heed Danker's warning:

On the whole, the abundant secondary literature provides the reader with a buffer against “private interpretations” and offers protective ointment against the disease of thinking that knowledge begins with the current generation.

—Frederick W. Danker in Biblical Greek Language and Lexicography: Essays in Honor of Frederick W. Danker

Regardless of the possible personal application (and I do know that knowledge marches on) the purpose of this package is to allow those interested to have access to works cited in BDAG they would not otherwise have.

What I want to know is whether FL is going to go back to BDAG and code in the references to these works. Not interested if they don't do so.

Or might not. See my word 'century'. Secondary 'modern' literature. Like what Logos recently shipped.

But, yes, BDAG is layers of older opinions.

That's what I was thinking. Not a total deal killer, but Logos is built on this principle. Now my suggestion is that FL would make themselves a true giant by actually get busy on this and do it and make a special offer to current and new BDAG owners of a special buy-in. Piggyback this as a unique resource. FL is exceptionally good at making something truly promotional and beneficial. A golden opportunity for FL.
