I'm in at $32. How long does it take to get the set once it goes into development? Anybody have a guess? I'm new at this.

Brooks Cochran:

Would some of you that bid $24 consider changing your bid to $28???

Just increased mine - but still not enough to take it over the top Sad

About two months.  Depending on the complexity due to language and references.

If not knowing greek is stopping you from bidding on this deal, check the examples. You dont need to know greek  in order to use these.Smile

   I am flabbergasted as to why it is not breaking through. With a golden resource like this the scriptures will be opened up and the leaves of dust will be pealed away from the minds of those who wish to expound the treasures of the Word of God!

   Come on folks! It's a mere 2,800 pennies! PENNIES!

Well I removed my bid. I'll bid again on Wednesday, as we'll have more time to bring the price down if it crosses then.

I paid $109.95 each for Alford's and Nicoll's Expositor's Greek Testaments in Logos. This Cambridge set, which I bid for when it came out, is a steal! What does it take to make people realize that? Even at $50 it would be worth it.

Currently Community Pricing has a minimum of 48 hours from crossing 100 % line and bidding close.   If 100 % crosses before Noon on Wednesday (in Bellingham), closing is Noon Friday in the same week.

Concur  Cambridge Greek Testament for Schools and Colleges (21 vols.) is close to having enough $ 28 (or higher) bids for 100 % of estimated production cost to be covered by $ 28 per bidder.

Noon Wednesday in Bellingham (lunch time) is near the end of dinner time (8 pm) in London and close to Thursday breakfast (7 am) in Sydney, Australia for this time of year.

It seems they have adjusted the pricing. Wasn't the spread $24 to $28. Now it is $2 difference. It is getting sooooo close.

Thankful for community price range adjustment by Logos (from $ 4 to $ 2).

Hurray! Finally! I've been waiting more than a year for this (Dec 2010).

It's not hurray when someone puts a CP over the top on a Wednesday morning! Appalling timing

What's appalling? The price can still go down. And even if it goes up to $30 or $50 (which it can't) it's a good deal.

The moral of the story is this: we need more than just one person who understands CP to remove their bids until after noon Wednesday (Washington time).

Jason B.:

"What is this set?" It's the best deal dollar-wise on a verse-by-verse (actually word-by-word in many instances) commentary on the Greek text of the NT that you can get anywhere. And despite its age, there is much to be gleaned from reading the comments.

"What's it used for and who uses it?" I don't currently use it, since it's not published yet, but ANYONE who works with the Greek NT will want to use it, and since the bulk of the commentary is in English, and a simple click can bring up a lexical definition for the Greek words for those that can't read Greek, even non-Greek readers can get much benefit from it, IMO. Just the cross-references alone are helpful for study (based on looking at the preview pages at the resource page).

What does it take to get people to realize what a bargain this is and that they really, really should get this in Logos if they do any studying or teaching or preaching at all, considering the almost giveaway price?

Jason ... this set, along with its sister already intro'd by Logos (Cambridge Bible for S/C) represented some of the well respected scholars at the turn of the last centruy. So if you enjoy some of their writings, this one has a considerable amount of detail on the greek, more so than the Cambridge Bible.

As an example, yesterday I was in a book published just a few years ago, and it repeatedly referenced some of these older volumes. Certainly there's been new discoveries since then (papyri, archaeology), but some of the areas they dove into were unique.

Personally, I want the Plummer volumes.

The other issue is simply the cost. To get Plummer's Epistles of John volume on Amazon,  you're looking at about $20 paperback. Logos gives you the whole set for $6-8 more AND it's fully indexed / cross-referenced.

And so, some of the excitement.
