Ceslas Spicq's two-volume commentary on Hebrews is stuck on pre-pub, but is so close to going into development.  Let's make that happen  https://www.logos.com/product/17734/the-epistle-to-the-hebrews

Also, the sixteen-volume Anabaptist and Mennonite Studies Collection has been on pre-pub for a year and needs a big boost if it is going to make it into development.

I'm an Anabaptist, and I can't justify purchasing that collection as I don't think it's any good:

Sidenote: I had the chance to buy the Anabaptist history collection on Community Pricing but didn't want it and don't regret not bidding as I'm not overly interested in 16th century Anabaptist heroes no matter how good their teachings were and what they succeeded with.

Each to their own.  I would be glad to have this collection and am trying to bring it to the attention of others who would also appreciate it.

I have been in on Spicq for a while now and was sold on it after reading many glowing reviews.

For Hebrews, Spicq and Westcott are/were the only ones I'd spend my money on (outside a commentary series).  

The book's too amenable to hobby-horse people.

What about John Owen ?

Unfortunately, both The Epistle to the Hebrews (2 vols.),  Aquinas' Commentary on the Prophet Isaiah: English and Latin (2 vols.), and Aquinas' Commentary on the Prophet Jeremiah: English and Latin (2 vols.) have been "so close to going into development" for a very long time. What beats me is that they moved so fast at first, and then they suddenly became dead in the water, in spite of all these new Catholic customers. Makes me wonder if Logos is deliberately keeping the figure below 100%...

I wonder why they would advertise it. Maybe the first order got in for a dollar.  Now I feel better about being a latecomer.

I thought this thread was just earlier this week.  Then I saw my name and I knew something had gone badly wrong.

I found the thread by querying Google, after checking which of my prepubs are still looking for support.  

This thread title/intro is almost bizarre ... Spicq was 'almost there' a YEAR ago???  This week too.

We ARE talking 'Hebrews', one of the more esoteric of the NT writings, and one providing the most clear 'crossover' to the apostolic fathers period (1st Clement as I recall).  It's also the one with the most crossover back into 2nd Temple writings and the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Unique is its middle name.

And a volume by Ceslas Spicq too!

Definitely this thread needs a BUMP!  as Unix likes to say.   And Unix ... what could you possibly not like about this volume? French?

Spicq really needs more folks. They may drag their feet at Logos, but it's up to us to give them the incentive.

Thanks for the bump Denise. I've been waiting for this for some time too.

lets say for a moment I live under a rock, and am unaware of who Spicq is and why I should be interested in what he has to say, how would you sell me on this volume? Coincidentally its one I am not yet in on - this is largely because I live under a rock, and have no idea who Spicq is. :)

I found the blog entry on LogosTalk to be helpful in understanding the value of this resource.
