That's probably what many of us wished we would have done. I have already given up on this series (just look at the product page if you still keep your hopes up), and regard paying up-front for EEC the poorest prepaid investment I have ever done. I trusted Logos to deliver something, but they keep happily quiet about this struggling project, despite receiving criticism and promising to improve communication (which has gotten worse since that was promised). I should have collected the free volumes and bought the ones on sale. It would have given me about $600 to spend on commentary volumes I can actually use in my lifetime.

I just looked at the product page and noticed that there are still FIVE volumes with a "TBA" author. That's almost EIGHT years after paying for the whole set.

André, you have stated well the frustrations of so many who purchased the whole set.

This is truly sad.  I can definitely understand why people are jumping ship but I'll hold on for a bit more.  The EEC volumes that have been released (and that I have gone through) have been really great (Exodus was the most recent).  What has been terrible is the communication.  Everyone knows commentaries take time to write but it just seems like nothing is going on.  I'm sure there is stuff happening behind the scenes but it is so hard to get an update that everyone just assumes there is nothing going on (at least I do).  Then you have them scrapping Varner's James (why not just do a re-edit and explain why?) and then turning the upcoming Jeremiah into a stand-alone.  Last I heard, EEC owners would get that for free but that just sets back the series so much more.  

Faithlife, if you do read these threads, something (anything) would be nice just to know what is happening (from both you and the editor).  If it is nothing, that is fine but at least we know it is still being worked on and in progress.

Again, I reiterate that the volumes I have perused through I thought were great!  I would just hate for everyone who is frustrated to run off and watch this set flounder around to a slow death.

What we really needed is not better communication but quicker production.

Just that there is silence, at least that was my intention 😃

Gotcha, Mattillo.  Like a grain of sand thrown in to the Grand Canyon, U wonder at the idea its [mostly] abandoned.

Hi Folks,

Sorry for the delayed response here. The latest updates for the EEC are rather brief:

  • Amos, Jonah, & Micah is in the middle of typesetting and is on track to release in print this Fall
  • Daniel is also in the middle of typesetting. It will get a simultaneous print & digital release early next year.

Thank you Jake! Any updates on the Jeremiah volume?

So, back in January I noted you said Daniel would be this summer. This tells me you really don't know either what is going on Jake.

Again, I am patient, but getting older. I really thought when I bought this it would be finished in my lifetime even without hitting the 2019 ambition date. Still, a year goes by and nothing. I believed in Faithlife, but will never pay for something not delivered in the future.  And for the record, I don't care about the print, just the digital version I paid for.

If the digital release of Daniel is being delayed to coincide with the print release... that would be a very bad customer relations move. (A much better one, if simultaneous general release is really that valuable to Faithlife, would be to release Daniel digitally and soon but only to those who have prepaid for the entire set.) I write this as someone who has not pre-ordered the series and is not part of its target audience to begin with.

Totally agree. If this is true, such a move would be extremely disrespectful to those of us who shelled out a ton of money almost eight years ago to preorder the entire digital commentary series. After all, we were told the entire series would already be done by the end of this year.

I totally agree with Matt's comment. Those of us who keep asking for updates on the EEC could care less about print editions. We are not impressed by these.

Check your emails! Owners of the EEC get the Walking with Ancient Path's volume for free.  Not sure how they are selecting people but good stuff!

also check to make sure you did not get charged for it.   I received one email telling me my credit card was charged and then one telling me how to get it for free.   Sent email to customer service to get the charge reversed.
