  • Re: Upcoming Prepubs to be shipped - Recommendations

    I've just done a quick check about Augustine and Eusebius and found the following: 1. Augustine's Confessions are by different translators: the one in the Early Church Fathers collection was translated by J. G. Pilkington (published: 1886), whereas the one in the CP offering was translated by William Watts (published in 1912). I don't know which (if

  • Re: A new "textual criticism" report ... please.

    I think it's an excellent idea. I've yet to master the critical apparatus, so anything that would help me interpret it would be a great help.

    I agree that it's strange that Cruse's commentary on Romans doesn't even have a score on yet, especially as it is in a major series and has received some good reviews on Amazon. It might be worth alerting the site maintainer using the contact form on the site. I notice that newer commentaries often tend to have lower scores than

  • Thank you, Logos!! Reg. price = post pre-pub price

    It's been a long time since I first posted about this (about three years ago), but the regular prices listed for pre-pub resources now consistently reflect the post pre-pub price. This takes the guess work out of deciding how much of a discount the pre-pub price represents and makes it much easier to make informed decisions about which pre-pubs to purchase

  • Re: Preaching the Word Upgrade 3 available for free

    [quote user="Kenneth Neighoff"] When I get to the screen it does say free, 100%, but when trying to check out, it says, $89.95. That's not free. There is a glitch somewhere. [/quote] My order history shows that I paid $0.00 for it. It does seem strange that it hasn't been promoted as a special offer.

  • Preaching the Word Upgrade 3 available for free

    Not sure if this has been mentioned elsewhere, but I've just noticed that Preaching the Word Upgrade 3 is available for free. It consists of commentaries on Deuteronomy (Ajith Fernando), Proverbs (Raymond Ortland), 1 and 2 Thessalonians (James Grant), and Revelation (James Hamilton). Worth picking up while it's free.

  • Re: I am thinking of selling most of my (physical) library in favour of electronic resouces: Thoughts?

    I've made a gradual transition to e-books over the past three years and have no regrets about it. I'm about to move to Japan to live there indefinitely, so I'm very glad that I can take all my books with me on my laptop and iPad (it would cost a fortune to ship them and Japanese apartments are not what you'd call spacious). I donated my commentaries

  • Re: How many Brits on Logos?

    I spent the first 18 years of my life in Cardiff, Wales, where I was converted under the preaching of Vernon Higham just a few months before moving to Australia. I have since lived in Australia for 20 years and Japan for 5 years. I'm just preparing to go back to Japan for several years at least with my Japanese wife. So I'm a bit confused about where

  • Re: Lexham Bible Guide: Ephesians

    The Lexham Bible Guide for Ephesians is cheap compared to those for other books: Galatians is $35, Luke is $75, and Genesis is a whooping $110 (all pre-pub prices). Other products produced by Logos are also expensive; for example, the Lexham Methods Series is $250 for four volumes. Purchasing them on pre-pub requires a big step of faith since they are

  • Re: Lexham Methods Series (4 Volumes)

    It looks like an interesting series, but it's too pricey for me (over $62.5 per volume). Also, there's nothing to evaluate it besides the blurb. There's not even any indication of page lengths. I'll be passing on this for now.

  • Re: Assessment of Classic Commentaries

    Thanks for all your thoughts. I think I'll persist with the Classic Commentaries, but will be selective about which ones I buy. I think the main benefit of old commentaries is that they give a perspective from another era. We're often blind to how our own culture affects the way we read a text. Reading a commentary from another period can help by giving

  • Assessment of Classic Commentaries

    I'm interested in hearing about how others are finding the Classic Commentaries series on Community Pricing. I've purchased seven of them so far, but I've found that I haven't been using them so far. I'm finding that I don't have enough time to read them after consulting modern commentaries. With 10 more coming out in the next 4 weeks (a total of $225

  • Re: Historical background

    I find the background commentaries by IVP and Zondervan very illuminating when considering the historical backgrounds of passages. Of the two, the Zondervan background commentaries are larger and hence more extensive. Both are highly recommended.

    I'm also interested in hearing other people's opinions on these commentaries as they are being offered for a very good price (~$3.70 per volume!). I found this old thread on them: They sound like good expository/devotional commentaries. Also, they generally appear to get very favorable reviews on Amazon
