I have been looking in the Theology Journal Bundle. 

I would like to hear what you think of this product, if you got it.

The Master Journal Bundle may be to much for me.

I got The Master Journal Bundle and haven't looked back.  It just isn't that expensive for what you get.  Do it.  Do it.  Better ask your wife first.

Which is 'best' depends heavily on what you intend to use it for. What do you use Logos for?

Huh?! Tongue Tied I thought the shipping date on this is (approx.) September.

Edit: Aaahhh!! The ship as available option.

I would echo both Gao and Mark's posts. You first have to clarify your needs but if at all possible I think the Master Bundle is a great option.

I am completing my Seminary online, and i use Logos for weekly sermon prep.

Of the new journals which are you happy that you have added to your Library?

What?!  You didn't get them all yet?

Just kidding.  

Journals are dribbling in bit at a time which is better than all at once, because otherwise I wouldn't have a clue what I'm getting,   But I'm like a kid in a candy store, and it just keeps getting better.

FWIW:  I used to get the TJL yearly.  Then in the past 2+ years that Logos has taken to get this journal fiasco situated, I went with Galaxie online.  

I signed up for the Theological Journal Library but ultimately upgraded to the Master Bundle.  There are a few journals I will never use, a few others that I may use.  The real reason was to add it to my payment plan was around $10 a month. I figured for that why not.  As with all Logos resources by as much as you can.  More than once I have been pleasantly surprised that I have a few resources here or there that I initially bought only because I might use them some day.  The other side is that journals are mainly for research and the more you have the more informed you can be.

I would recommend the Theological Journal Bundle for a pastor.

As a pastor, the Master Bundle has journals I don't need. The TJB comes closest to matching the now-unavailable TJL which I owned and regularly updated. (Unfortunately a few journals in the TJL are not available in any Logos bundle.)

Why is Logos adding to the cost if you want to use the "SHIP AS AVAILABLE OPTION"

Theology Journal Bundle $364.59

Ship as available used the price to $501.37

Logos is already getting $364.59 for this set why do they need to milk us for an added $136.78?

I pretty sure you won't get "fleeced" for the difference - have a work with sales.

I am currently signed up for the TJL Upgrade bundle but have thought (and continue to do so) long and hard about getting the Master Bundle. I currently have all the previous Journals offered by Logos and would get a good deal with dynamic pricing. I'm hoping to have my mind made up by September. Wink

Well I did e-mail sales because i wanted to know the story with the extra fee if you choose Ship as Available, the fee is added onto the journal cost which is just to much. So i can't do Ship as Available.

So what ever i get, I must wait until Sept to ship..

What extra fee? Are you referring to a payment plan? I purchased the Master Bundle with the "Ship as Available" option, but I didn't think that I was paying extra for that priviledge.

Before the 3rd June there was no additional cost for going with the "ship as available" option - details at https://blog.logos.com/2015/05/get-your-journals-as-we-complete-them/

In other words, there's no longer a pre-pub discount for "ship as available", because it's already in production. But there is a pre-pub discount if you wait.

Not since 3 June (shortly after the first journals started shipping). See Graham's link, above.

Logos CS e-mailed me and they have taken care of the issue.

I just wanted to thank everyone, again Logos came through with a deal for me so i will be getting the Master Journal Bundle.

I am so happy having Logos and FaithLife.
