"For a limited time individual volumes from one of the most respected series on biblical theology are $9.99 each. And when you get 12 or more volumes, you’ll receive a coupon code good for up to $50 off your next purchase!"

I've got the following in my basket so far:

Are there any others people recommend?

I bought the set on prepub back in December - most are great.

(On a side note, I thought the prepub price was the best price one could get on a product from Logos. This current sale, just 7 months after the prepub shipped, is cheaper than the original prepub price. $349-$50(coupon) = $299. The prepub price was $320.)

well, one could go by what is bestselling: https://www.logos.com/products/search?q=%22new+studies+in+Biblical+Theology%22&sort=bestselling&pageSize=60&Series+%2f+Sets=New+Studies+in+Biblical+Theology+(NSBT) 

Personally, I think I'll go for:

https://www.logos.com/product/80696/original-sin-illuminating-the-riddle 

and https://www.logos.com/product/80732/paul-and-the-law-keeping-the-commandments-of-god as well

Yes. This sale definitely again calls into question prepub value. Best to treat prepub as a real preorder now and not as a deal.

I'm thinking of cancelling a lot of my prepubs, because it seems I can get these things down the road for the same price (or cheaper).

This is definitely a new M.O. Personally, I am glad for it. If the publisher is going to have a sale, I want in!

Actually, with the sale, it's not $349-$50(coupon) = $299 because the coupon is for a future order. So, you would need to add in the price of whatever that future order is as well. In order to get $50 off, the future order would need to be at least $50, so the NSBT is costing you $349 no matter what.

I bought Beale's Book - Temple - in Kindle because this set was not broken up. Then I saw that it was broken up in Logos and bought it at full price AND NOW I see it's on sale.

Wish they would at least let us know that a set "might" go on sale.

Just to clarify, the $50 coupon is only when you buy the full set, you get a $15 coupon for 12+ books or a $30 coupon for 24+ books. See https://www.logos.com/nsbt-sale
Tempting deal though!

Thank you! Where is Phil Gons now and all the other Logos employees that "honor" the prepub system? Why not say, "Hey, sometimes is convenient for the publisher and us to give you a better discount than the 'prepub price' and sometimes is not." But don't try to convince us of something that has been proven time and time again to be false and very subjective when is not convenient for the company.  Don't get me wrong I'm not angry but I believe this point needs to be address to be fair with all the customers.

Actually, money is fungible, so the coupon counts as real money on a future order. Since I order from Logos all the time, it is the same as getting an actual discount. Therefore, the prepub "broken promise" still stands. It doesn't matter - I just don't believe Logos any more that when something is on prepub is will actually be the cheapest price - I have seen too many go on sale later for less. My only point is I don't need to fixate on getting something on prepub anymore because I think it is a better deal - it's often not. It's my issue, not Logos as a company (they do what they want).

I picked up:

With the Clouds of Heaven: The Book of Daniel in Biblical Theology:  Many reviews and articles on eschatology and Biblical theology reference this work and it is the main reason I was glad to see the set broken up.

Christ, Our Righteousness: Paul’s Theology of Justification:  Read the review by Carson and pick this up if you are interested in justification or the NPP.

I would have probably gotten a few others, but the $100 Eerdman's Collection prevented me.  However, if the old payment plan was in effect...

Well get this!

After finding out that the set was now on sale as individual titles I 'chatted' with a sales rep and was refunded my initial full price for Beale's Temple and then picked it up for sale price and five other titles in that series.

THANKS FL for your generosity and the customer care that so many of us are getting used to, but not unappreciative.

Can someone explain for me how "biblical theology" is defined in these works because it can mean different things to different people. I come to biblical theology from the perspective of Geerhardus Vos. Do these volumes reflect this perspective or something else?
