Just noticed that the Logos version of William Gouge's 'Commentary on the Whole Epistle to the Hebrews' doesn't actually cover the 'whole epistle' as it only has 2 of the 3 volumes and stops at chapter 10!

The commentary has always been a 3-volume set, both when originally published and when republished by Kregel in the 1980s.

The 2 volumes have been on Logos for years, can't believe no-one has noticed this before! Can we get the 3rd volume added to the set please?

Thanks for your interest Stephen, I will look into getting the third volume.

I'm a little disturbed that after being noted a year ago, the product page does not give any hints that the resource is incomplete unless you read the description on volume 2. That is a bad look.

Yes, and even then it's not explicitly stated.

Can we get an update on this FL? It's now been over a year since it was pointed out.

It is currently gathering interest: https://www.logos.com/product/205526/a-commentary-on-the-whole-epistle-to-the-hebrews 

My dynamic price for the three volume set is $5.50.

Not trying to cause problems but shouldn’t this be included to the people who owned the original? It originally stated it was the whole product (I could be wrong) but now it just says volumes 1 and 2. I now have to purchase volume 3??

Edit: I was wrong on this; see below later comment. My apologies

Agree - especially since the product is entitled 'A commentary on the whole epistle to the Hebrews'.

Therefore I trust the third volume will be produced and that the project won't stall at the 'Gathering Interest' phase if enough people don't pre-order it.

It looks like the books were originally titled by the publisher as "A Commentary on the Whole Epistles of Hebrews."  Logos simply listed the volumes as they were titled and only carried 2 out of 3 volumes.  Although the product description does indicate that the first two volumes only covered the first 10 chapters of Hebrews, the title is definitely confusing.  If Logos decides to give me volume three I won't complain.  Big Smile

Not that I need the last volume, but for $5 bucks, I’ll take it 👍😁👌

I (and many others I assume) got vols1-2 as part of https://www.logos.com/product/18509/classic-commentaries-and-studies-on-hebrews It was not included in this collection from the get-go for whatever reason. Perhaps they overlooked it. Perhaps they didn't have a copy available.

I went through the internet archives and they advertised it as two volumes and never as a complete set. My original comment is in error. I'm in for volume 3!

The description explained: 

"Based upon a career of preaching and teaching, William Gouge—chair of the Westminster Assembly—wrote A Commentary on the Whole Epistle to the Hebrews (2 vols.). This classic work is a comprehensive exposition on the authorship, composition, practical application of doctrine, and scope of the book of Hebrews. This work includes over 700 pages of verse-by-verse analysis of Scripture. The first volume covers chapters one through five in extensive detail with regard for semantic and intended interpretation. Volume two examines chapters six through 10 with the same scholarly eye and logical sense that Gouge applied to his preaching. Published posthumously, this commentary was the culmination of a life spent studying the Scriptures and serving the church, and it remains a profitable tool for Christians today."

I haven't used the commentaries yet.  Does anyone have any thoughts on them?
