I apologize if this is a silly question, but I was just wondering how it is that J. Vernon McGee's Through the Bible Commentary is priced at $174.99 while e-sword has the same commentary for only $39.99?  That is quite a price difference.  Obviously I'd prefer to have it for Logos than e-sword so that it integrates with everything else, but that's a tough sell at more than 4x the price.

EDIT - I guess a related question is should I get the McGee LifeWorks collection instead?  It seems that it includes the entire Thru the Bible commentary.  Is there any benefit to getting the $174.99 version instead of the $69.95 collection, especially since the collection also comes with other books?  I can stomach that price, but can't figure out why just the commentary costs so much more than a collection that seems to include said commentary.  Color me confused.

Apparently e-books from Logos costs much more to produce and support than other publishers that make e-books...

You're not the only one...see this thread for this very discussion: http://community.logos.com/forums/t/10245.aspx

I think this has to do with the publisher, Thomas Nelson, who is always repackaging their resources with a wide variety of price points.

Then I guess the only other question is: Is there any problem if I never owned Logos 3?  It seems the $69.95 collection is a Logos 3 product.  Is that a problem for me as a Logos 4 user?

You might have to call Customer service with the serial number to get it unlocked on your account, but other than that you should have no problem using it.
