They now seem to adhere to the newish paradigm of releasing sales at 10 a.m. Bellingham time (i.e. in about forty minutes).

Oh yeah. I forgot it was 10. I was thinking it was 9 and wondered why they were late.

Any thoughts on the Logos +1, +2, +3 resources? Sure they are deep discounts, but is that reason enough to get them? Thoughts welcome :)

Carpe verbum.

Exodus receives this recommendation with caution.

1 Peter is included in Don Carson's best buys, although he says it needs to be used with discernment.

The Daniel volume recommendation I've seen is for those doing research, rather than for preachers, etc. So I'm passing on this one.

I wish I knew what Ligonier meant by Childs' "critical stance".

Ah, to me that is a useful recommendation ... I am not interested in commentaries that only confirm my prejudices.

Discernment seems to be necessary with every commentary and resource. I am amazed at how readily people swallow really bad secular stuff that pervades modern higher education and it seems to be perfectly acceptable to trundle it into print. 

On the plus side, it does make me spend more time in prayer. If it wasn't for the Holy Spirit, I would not open half of the commentaries I do.

I would guess questioning the authorship, date of exodus, and/or considers some stuff un-historical

This review mentions some of that: https://jamesbradfordpate.wordpress.com/2011/07/26/beginning-childs-commentary-on-exodus/

OK. I didn't realize that Ligonier was so thoroughly opposed to the use of the historical critical method. (Childs was--famously--much less 'into' hist-crit as generally understood than most scholars.)

Yeah I wouldn't say that as they don't make it clear which is a shame but your guess is as good as mine. I did stumble across this article today though... found it interesting.
