I noticed this was on sale and curious what people's thoughts were. Conservative? Liberal? Too old to be of any real value? Thanks

Although this set is older, it is still very helpful. In my judgement, the work is conservative.

As I wrote in my review 6 years ago,

This set is particularly remarkable for its excellent coverage of Christian biography, a fact first called to my attention years ago by Pastor Norman Douty. I bought the print set at his recommendation. On Logos, it ought to be even more serviceable.
