I went from Portfolio + 2 BPs then returned them. Then went straight to Ultimate.

Cheaper that way I guess.

MJ. Smith:
found the L8 package to be one of the more exciting in all my years with Logos/Verbum/Faithlife.

Would you mind expanding on this, MJ? Which package(s) did you end up choosing that you liked so much? And which resources caught your fancy in particular?

I ended up at Portfolio/Diamond level in Catholic, Orthodox, Anglican and Lutheran traditions - which is not as much as it sounds like because there is a tremendous amount of overlap. I was very excited to be able to pick up the Aramaic Bible which was outside my price range as a stand alone product. I was also excited about the NETS translation of the Septuagint, the Ancient Christian Texts & Doctrines series, the Samaritan Pentateuch (another that I wouldn't be able to justify on its own), the start of Patrologiae Cursus Completus: Series Graeca, the Orthodox Biblical interpretation volumes, I'm fond of the Sheffield Academic Press and the JSOTS monographs and the Popular Patristics Series ... you can see why I'm a very happy camper. I would have loved to pick up more liturgical materials but ...

I guess asking why you didn't get any Reformed or Baptist products would be like you asking me why I did not get any Catholic or Orthodox products...

I think I have decided Reformed Platinum and Lutheran Silver is what I like... but not sure if I can make the $$ work.

This is exactly which libraries I would love to have! I'm going to have to start much more humbly, though.  I'm going to go for Orthodox Gold, I think.

Sadly, I think I will need to back down to Reformed Gold instead of Platinum...Sad

Ted you got a lot! Ultimate is packed with good stuff. Congratulations.

Thanks Mark.

There were books i had on my wish list, some heavy ticket items which were offered in the new base package. So i am glad i waited this time around rather than buy at the PrePub price.

Kind regards

The packages this time around are really generous and, yes, you were wise to wait.

Well the rep wasn't able to butter me up to Ultimate, but I ended up with Reformed Portfolio, Standard Portfolio, Baptist Gold, and Lutheran Silver.

I think the Reformed Portfolio is still the top package in L8 in terms of resources/price. The Works of Jonathan Edwards alone is amazing.

Let's put it this way, I can appreciate Luther, Hus, Mennon ... (part of my heritage is Mennonite) but I can't stand to read Calvin. :-)

I was really pleased with what I got.  I got Standard Silver and Anglican Silver (coming from L7 Silver).   Just in commentaries that were new to me I got: Cornerstone Biblical Commentaries, Bible Speaks Today OT & NT, Holman NT Commentary, NT for Everyone, Biblical Illustrator NT, and IVP NT Commentary Set.  In total got 282 new resources at less than $1 per book!  Plus I get a free course that would have cost more than my entire upgrade.

Now I am looking carefully at all of the Starter and Bronze packages for even more outstanding deals.

I agree I got Reformed Portfolio along with Standard Portfolio. So many good things like Edwards, Reformed Expository Commentaries, Gospel according to the Old Testament series, etc.

Sean:

As one interested in the lower level packages, Anglican Silver is looking the best right now. In L6 I went for Reformed & Verbum, L7 Methodist, so this looks like the best to round out my library mix.

lol, I once had L4 Portfolio, but have steadily decreased my level of purchase, due to economics.  Although the last time around I think I sprung for the (now defunct) Chaplain set, Standard Gold and a smattering of other traditions at lower levels.  

This time around, to keep within about a $200-300 range I have kind of narrowed it down to Anglican Silver or Orthodox Bronze, maybe Orthodox Silver.  I am especially interesting in expanding my church fathers resources.  I get a little of that with Anglican (even more so with Gold, but that pushes it over $400) along with some basic commentary sets: BST OT and Feasting on the Word.  The Orthodox packages have various iterations of Church Fathers material, from the "Popular Patristics" to the Ancient Christian Writers.  Obviously Bronze offerings are pared wayyy down but still some decent books.  I am very interested in gaining from their spiritual/devotionally focused books.  It's a Christian tradition on the opposite spectrum of my own and I find it gives added depth to me.  Orthodox Silver puts it over $400 which is a tad much for me at this time.

I also was interested in the Priscilla Papers in the M/W package and their higher packages have terrific Commentary sets.  But even though the value is great, the price is too steep.

Still deliberating...

I like Apples.  Especially Honeycrisp.

Remember, with a Silver you get the free ME course ($300).

Silver is also the lowest level that gives you the Full Feature set.
