Denise:

I slipped across the border (Arizona to Utah) and tried out the Canadian Thanksgiving Sale. It's kind of squirrel-ly (in honor of Thanksgiving of course).

First, the sale page doesn't show the sale prices (at least on my browser, cookies or not, scripting or not). Then when I selected a book (using my Canadian passport), the coupon did give a GOOD price cut. Then when I added a second book, it didn't give me ANY price cut.

So, the web programming is pretty good. Arizonians are not Canadians.  But it's a very nice sale for real Canadians.

Denise, are you saying that the technology is set up in such a way that only Canadians can see and use these coupons? If so that is pretty impressive.

Does one generally get better prices at the Black Friday sale than by talking to sales reps? I have some minor bit of research funding that should arrive in the next two weeks or so, and figuring out the best way to allocate it.

Personally I have found this to be the case but it certainly is not guaranteed.

No, but I ran into this problem as well, as I took advantage of two Canadian Thanksgiving specials. I had to separate the coupon codes with commas, not with semicolons like I thought I did (and I saw that a new coupon took away the rebate from the older item, and space- or semicolon-separated codes took away all rebates. I was ready to purchase single items but tried comma-separation first. IE9 it was.

I know this is unlikely, but I would like to see the Theological Journal Library 1-15 on sale come Black Friday.

After I rationalized that at least a few Canadians are rumored to buy resources on American holidays, I went ahead back across the border, and bought what (so far) looks to be very good reading at a very good price.

However my second purchase had to fall by the wayside, since unlike NB, I didn't know that magic words to unlock the secrets of Logos sales.

But I saved money; more than I spent on the other volume. So, essentially I put money in the bank (practicing for the primaries next year).

While I am collecting money for this set, Logos raised silently the price. Dynamic price used to be for upgrade from vol 1-10 $188.95 and now is 193.46 Crying

Bruce Dunning:

I am Canadian and I didn't even hear about it. I'm not sure how that happened. Do I need to update my notifications page again?

I don't believe so. The good news: It's still running. There's an individual coupon code for each product. Look for it on the product page.

Thanks a lot, Ray, for this information. And Happy Thanksgiving to Bruce, Milford and all the other Canadians out there, eh!  

 

Hey Mick!            *smile*                           It really is a Special Day here!                 Thanksgiving Monday is the holiday!        Everything is closed!

             Sunday is called Thanksgiving by the Christians!             The chancel - altar- entrances - and/or other areas are often decorated with the fruits of the field including corn stalks, et cetera --                     The cornucopia is often featured ...         this is not from my church, but it's a good example ....        It's called  Harvest Home by some also

Mick and Denise!         *smile*                   I, like Bruce, also missed the sale!            I'm glad for this particular thread since I've just done the "coupon" thing - Thank you!   *smile*                   and now I'm the new proud owner of In the Shadow of the Temple

Looks like an excellent book!                                       Indeed!                                                            Psalm 29:11

If you and I both missed the Canadian Thanksgiving sale it makes me wonder how many other Canadians missed the sale and how it was advertised.

Also, the book I bought through the sale was also Shadow of the Temple which I began reading last night. What an excellent book to give the background for the times of Jesus and the early church. I am enjoying it immensely.

I never thought that as a well bred UK guy I would be celebrating Canada's Thanksgiving Day from the UK - thanks to this thread of course.  8-)


Thanks for the recommendation Bruce (& Milford), you should be on commission I would have not bothered to look into Shadow of the Temple without your comment. I think this will get fast tracked up my reading list now I have it.

We're headed that way, actually. We ran a sale for Canadian Thanksgiving last week. As we hire more International Market Managers, expect to see more of that.

Now what day could be used for us here in the UK?? We don't seem to do "Thanksgivings", more like "Grumblings"! We do have the Queen's Birthday but it is only recently that we started having a day's holiday for that.

Why would anyone expect Logos to inform Canadians of a sale to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving Hmm

However, based on your recommendation, I will give that book a look.

Same here for you three: I had picked two other works and totally overlooked this book. Now checking it out again (viewing into it and skimming some comments at a large retailer platform) I'm glad to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving with one more resource - for all those curious (and maybe "underwhelmed" or outbudgeted by the PAM so far): the sale runs until today!

That's a good question. Maybe you could help us figure it out. Wink

Peace Mick and John and Bruce and ALL!             *smile*

                    Good ol' Serendipity!             Nothing like it, eh???              This book came "out of the blue" for me also!           I've been delving into Worship in the Early Church very seriously in the last couple of months, and there was absolutely no way that I would decline from the necessary usage of this book for my studies ...        *smile*

          For others of you, here's the Introduction:

Introduction

Yet another book on the Jewish roots of Christianity?

Yes, but hopefully with a difference. Most books on this topic are written by scholars for fellow scholars or as textbooks for students. This book is neither. It is intended for the general reader. Through the years, I have felt an increasing fascination with the story of Christian origins. In this book I try to convey some of that fascination.

I decided not to tell the story as a connected, chronological narrative. The approach is rather to focus on some selected themes, then illustrate them with representative episodes, snapshots, anecdotes.

When a scholar writes for the general reader, he or she normally uses quite some space to inform about different theories and points of view. I do that to a certain extent, but I have not been shy to present my own picture. It goes without saying that on many, perhaps all points, it is possible to see things differently. For this reason—and to answer the inquisitive reader’s question, “Where can I read more, and something different, about this?”—the book is dotted with footnotes and “Suggestions for Further Reading.” Many of the titles in these sections represent other points of view than those argued in the book.

My work on the book began in 1983 in Jerusalem. Since then, a formidable flood of books and articles on the theme has appeared. It has meant much work in trying to keep abreast of all these interesting publications; it has also been great fun. Hopefully some of the fun has spilled over into the book.

Most authors feel the need for serious disclaimers with regard to books as comprehensive as this one: it simply must contain mistakes of fact, judgement and method. It certainly does. But it lies in the very nature of historical inquiry that “results” are always preliminary and open to revision and improvement. I would very much like to think of a book like this as my contribution to an open-ended conversation going on in the enlightened community of readers.

Let me add a few lines about the book’s main thesis. Many standard works about Jewish-Christian relations in antiquity more or less presuppose that all real contact and debate between Jews and Christians had already come to its natural end during the first decades of the second century a.d. According to this view, the Jewish matrix of Christianity is something to be treated quite briefly on the very first pages of textbooks on church history. The church historian often assumed that he or she could leave the more thorough treatment of Jewish background and Jewish matters to the New Testament experts, since this was most relevant to the first-century period and not very important with regard to the predominantly Gentile church of the second and later centuries.[1]

That is funny. Even Canadians celebrate Queen Victoria's birthday in May! Or is it Queen Elizabeth's birthday that you celebrate?

Glad to have shared this gem of a book with you. I'd love to hear what you think of it after you get into it.
