It is interesting to observe that this series is from IVP UK where the NT series is from IVP.  I saw another set from IVP UK just last week, New Studies in Biblical Theology (35 vols.)

https://www.logos.com/product/53670/new-studies-in-biblical-theology

I have noticed that there is a lot of material from IVP that is not in Logos of late.  Maybe FL has had to go over the pond to get material from IVP UK because of some issues with IVP here in the States. 

I would like to have the set and I agree that it is a significant amount of money to lay out.

It is interesting to note the tone of this thread as the majority are saying the product is overpriced. Yet, checking the product page, the pre-pub. progress bar shows 'almost there'! Surprise

Yeah...it makes you wonder. I can say with something approaching certainty that I will never own this set.

Also, I can't actually recall ever coming across any quotes from this set in my Logos library. I'll keep my eyes open now out of curiosity, but I don't expect to encounter that many mentions.

Well for your sake George hope it goes into production soon- but for me- NO THANKS- not worth it.

Im considering it, but will likely pass due to price. I have too many babies to feed these days!

I would like to buy but it is too expensive at this price. I will wait until it gets cheaper.

This set isn't core like New International Commentary of the Old Testament or WBC. I think the price tag is more inflation than anything else.

Just received this

"Order update: Bible Speaks Today Old Testament Commentary Series (33 vols.)

You are receiving this email because you pre-ordered the Bible Speaks Today Old Testament Commentary Series (33 vols.).

Due to copyright laws, this product is being produced without several poems and quotes that appear in the print volumes. Five of the thirty-three volumes will be affected, and most only in one instance. We’re sorry for this inconvenience."

Does anyone think it will significantly affect the set?

The affect on these commentaries will be minimal. The rights issues apply to short poem/lyrical stanzas quoted by the authors. Usually the quotes appear in illustrative contexts and (for the most part) do not materially affect the actual commentary on Scriptural passages.

I see that the Bible Speaks Today Old Testament Commentary Series is broken up and is on sale for $9.99 as part of the Christmas sale in the "Deals under $10" section. You need to expand it to see these.

It looks like Isaiah is missing but the rest show up.

I also have the Bible Speaks Today NT which I bought at a very low price here on LOGOS.

I would not and will not spend $329.99 for the Bible Speaks Today Old Testament.

Something has changed at LOGOS, because all I see all over the place is exorbitant prices everywhere - both bundles and books way over-priced; and even in pre-pub this is happening.

However, it is broken up and on sale at $9.99 per volume under the Christmas Sale.

I got the whole set OT & NT on sale for $119.95 from the competition. It's well done and it serves the purpose of consulting it and copying and pasting for citations. No need to pay over $400 just for the OT set. Besides I also own the NT in Logos, but got it for $60 bucks and change before the price went up ridiculously.

Having a second Bible software definitely helps! I'm even considering a third (Accordance) for Accordance exclusive content. Most of my investment is in Logos, but I realize I gotta be a better steward of the money God gives me and sometimes Logos doesn't really help me in that department, so I have to look for other options.

Doubt you will ever regret getting Accordance. Olivetree, Accordance and Logos all have their strengths. I use OT the least on my desktop but almost most always first on mobile devices. Accordance has fast start and blazing fast searches as well as its numerous graphic rich resources. Logos has many bellls and whistles and offers the largest library selection (Although OT is aggressively adding n books). I have found ACC a great companion for Logos because I have poor cellular coverage when traveling and Accordance always allows me to look up Greek Hebrew although its mobile apps lack a passage guide as of yet.

You can get this in Anglican Portfolio. My price then is much cheaper.

Anglican portfolio is the only reason I has BST OT in my library. Although I got AP for its massive number of Western Spiritual Classics BST was just an unintended bonus.

I got the dead tree version at Keswick a couple of years ago for £150! I wonder if the price rise in the NT BST and the price that this came out at was anything to do with SPCK taking over IVP UK, the IVP reference bundle seems to have disappeared as well.

 Most likely because that's what happened when Zondervan took over Thomas Nelson they jacked up the prices in a very ridiculous way (e.g. EBC, WBC,  and a bunch of essential libraries McArthur, David Jeremiah, Courson, etc.).  They kind of gave customers an incentive by putting the NIV application commentary on sale for $7.99 per volume.
