I need a recommendation of Pentecostal resources preferably in a base package.

Blessings in Christ.

Tes, is this for yourself or someone else? I would think that base packages should best be compared with what you already own.

It is for me. What I need is not only titles ,but a recommendation based on specific information about the resources how useful they are.

Blessings in Christ.

I see it more as a matter of manners. I rarely read the Pentecostal & Charismatic forums (or the Reformed forums, or the SDA forums, or the Messianic Jews forum) because I know they are outside what I know. Once in a great while a thread title will catch my attention either because it makes me curios or it is something I know nothing about. But generally, I don't spend time on those posts - giving me more time to answer posts that I can actually help on.  By putting this in General rather than Pentecostal & Charismatic, it puts demands on my time that it wouldn't otherwise.

Obviously, this is not a big deal and it happens often. But I wanted you to know that while you see no difference, it does make a difference at least to me.

It depends on what type of resources you are looking for and why you specifically want them.

Because the following is not in any of the Pentecostal and Charismatic Packages I find it hard to recommend one.

https://www.logos.com/product/183098/foundations-of-pentecostal-theology-revised-and-updated 

I have the older version but I think this is the best Pentecostal Theology currently available in Logos.

Both of the volumes here are good:

https://www.logos.com/product/153197/pentecostal-theology-collection

They are available in:

https://www.logos.com/product/165433/logos-8-pentecostal-and-charismatic-platinum 

But because of the amount of Charismatic material a better option to get these volumes could be:

https://www.logos.com/product/177501/logos-8-theology-library-expansion-xl 

Also good in my opinion is:

https://www.logos.com/product/155093/wipf-and-stock-pentecostal-theology-collection 

A final thought from me is that I when a new Logos version comes out I personally tend to get a Pentecostal and Charismatic Package along with a Methodist and Wesleyan one because of the influence that Wesley has had on Pentecostal reaching over the years. 

Hope this helps.

Thank you for your time Graham. It was only a face book link. I could see nothing  I could see only face book logos participants.

Blessings in Christ.

Hi Tes

There are some definite improvements in the Logos 9 Pentecostal and Charismatic packages from a Pentecostal perspective especially for those who are part of Assemblies of God. Gold looks like a good entry if you are looking for something reasonably substantial, as always my personal preference would be to have more materials by Pentecostal Academics and less by Charismatic Celebrities but I understand the complexity that sits behind this and in fairness to Logos the package is a reasonable compromise.

As an upgrade for me personally Gold made sense financially adding enough material to justify the spend without adding too many as I already have lots of resources. So that's what I went for.

Thank you Graham for your recommendation. I have seen the Logos 9 Pentecostal Gold there are some books which I want to add. 

Blessings in Christ.

I think it depends on what you know about some of the authors... and sometimes that makes a resource less valuable. I kind of mismash from the different offerings and then just supplement books from authors I know are biblically sound. 

Honestly, it depends on what you already have, what you need, and what you are looking for.
