Have all the volumes of the Teach The Text Series been published?

I know the series got cancelled, but I just wanted to know if all the volumes that are supposed to be out are out or are we waiting for more?

 I’m able to get all 21 current volumes for $159.99. I think it’s a great deal! (Sorry can’t post a link).

from Baker:

The series will be limited to 21 volumes rather than the 34 volumes that were originally planned. Thirteen volumes will not be published. The remaining eight volumes will be published in paperback without full-color visuals. While we regret to omit the four-color visual content, these changes will make it possible to publish the commentaries in a sustainable, familiar, and affordable format.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

I think above probably also explains why someone recently felt some of the visuals (I think in the Acts volume) were of a lower standard than other volumes.

I guess they weren’t selling as originally planned.  Interesting approach to writing commentaries.  It’s unfortunate that they couldn’t finish the series.  Oh well, I’ll test drive it and see how it is.  It’s definitely cheaper now that it will ever be in Logos.  At $159.99 for all 21 volumes or $9.99 each, it’s a bargain!

Yeah. That was me. I was disappointed when I discovered this. I've grown to love the TTT series, and was saddened when I discovered, by accident, that some were in B&W with no images. The color versions are excellent, with a ton of tagged images that support the text. I use a lot of images in my Sunday morning messages, and the TTT series was an excellent resources for relevant images.

That is a good deal! I really like this series, and concur that it's very unfortunate! Wish they had completed all the resources in full color. I especially loved the application sections at the end of each commentary section - excellent devotional material.

Is this a sale that is about to go live soon or is it a special sale just for particular users? I don't see the discount yet.

Slightly off topic, I've recently switched to using less images and more Bible verses on the screen when I preach. I find fewer people are looking at the Bible these days, so rather than 'illustrate' my talk with pictures, I find I'm trying to direct them to the Bible verses I'm focusing on in particular. It doesn't mean I no longer use any pictures - just far fewer.

I use verses and pictures! Accordance has a great “sermon builder” called “Paper” and you can add pictures attached as thumb nail images and when you click on them they zoom out into a good size slide that you can show to people and make it bigger if you want.  I preach and teach from my screen so this feature is extremely super useful.  Unfortunately, Logos never really cared to look into it.  That would’ve made the sermon editor the Father of all sermon building editors, but nothing! I guess FL just wants to have something average and not excel on this important feature!

Contact your rep in their sales office and I suspect you'll get another 30% off the price you quoted. They've always given me 30% off their web price.

This is a sale for another Bible Software company.  You will not find it on FL site.

In my sales rep email that he sent, he said that’s the price he can offer.  I assume it’s because Baker publishes them and they place restrictions like they do Logos and AccordanceBible.  Either way, is a great bargain. I have til Friday to decide πŸ‘πŸ˜πŸ‘Œ

Thanks DAL

I got the same response. First time I haven't been able to get an extra 30% off that company. Shame Faithlife can't get those prices from Baker. Ironically I would have bought several volumes from Faithlife, but I'll pass as even at $9.99 I don't like the other company's apps as much.

Not all are available for individual purchase, and the two bundles are not given any discount? Hope Faithlife would offer discount for the whole seriesπŸ‘πŸ»
