According to the product listing for Platinum 9 (https://www.logos.com/product/195378/logos-9-platinum), there should be 20 volumes in the Lexham Research Commentaries included with Platinum. When I look at my library after downloading the upgrade to Platinum 9, I only see 17 commentaries.

Are other 3 commentaries yet to be released and will they be included as part of Platinum? This seems to be the case in the Lexham Research Commentaries product page.

Also, when I go to the product page for Lexham Research Commentaries (https://www.logos.com/product/189697/lexham-research-commentaries#Reviews), it says I need to pay $94.31 to get the 20 volumes. Why should I have to pay for the 3 volumes that are not yet published, when the Logos Platinum product page says it includes 20 volumes?

There are LRC still in production. If you bought a package with them, they will download when they are released.

Harry,

If you go to Logos.com, go to browse all books and then in the menu on the left select "owned" and "preproduction" it should list what is in production but not yet in your library. Some may already be in your library and if you were with Wordsearch, those books will also show in the list.

Well, you taught me something new!  I never thought of doing that.  Very useful!  To clarify, you click "Owned" and "Pre-Pub," and not "preproduction."

The Lexham Research Commentaries still in Pre-Pub are Ruth, Daniel, and Matthew, which I found by following John's advice!

This is strange.  When I go to that page it shows that I own them all.  Check again, maybe it's been fixed.  If not, maybe someone from Faithlife will chime in here, or you might need to call customer service.  Following John's advice, it would also show you if the system recognizes that you do indeed own those three volumes.

Wow, this list has increased massively since I last checked.

The number of books coming to Logos from the eBooks site is mind blowing.

From the page as displayed, the Lexham Research Commentary offered in the Platinum package is only a partial set of 17 volumes, not 20 volumes are included in the package..

By the way, the gospel according to Luke is not included in any bundle: https://www.logos.com/product/26775/lexham-research-commentary-luke

I am having difficulty finding "preproduction".  I cannot find it in the menu on the left.

Hey Mark, look for status and then pre-pub.

Do we have any updates when Daniel, Matthew, Ruth or Luke are coming?

Thanks.  I saw that, but I was not sure if pre-pub was different than preproduction. Thanks for the clarification.

You can also add your CP items. I got a lot more in pre-pub and CP than I ever expected with my L9 libraries.

Luke, Ruth, and Daniel are at the top of my list to tackle once I'm finished with Lexham Geographic Commentary on the Pentateuch. Hopefully I can turn my attention to them before the end of the year. Matthew is still being written. I expect to finish them in the order of Ruth, Daniel, and Luke. We won't set a release date for any of them until they are further along in editorial. Sorry for the delay. Things that I'd planned for this year seem to be taking longer than expected.

True. But the Comparison page title says "Lexham Research Commentaries (20 vols.)"

I can see that if you count up the individual volumes listed there are only 17. But when a customer looks at the list of resources is a base package and it says "20 vols.", it is reasonable to expect 20 volumes to be included. I did not count every volume in every set to make sure that the expected number of volumes is included. But I can see that it would be wise to do that for every set before ordering.

I am not going to press the matter. But when I ordered the upgrade, I thought I was getting the entire Lexham Research Commentary set. I did not expect to have to pay another $100 to complete the set. I might have done the calculation differently on whether the upgrade was worthwhile if I had checked the number of volumes in each set that are included.

Yes, but it also has only half-filled bullets in the comparison you show:

The comparison page explicitly states that those are only partially included. In all those cases we need to expand the line to see what we actually get, as it could be one volume only, and it often varies across the levels (LRC Ruth is included in Collectors, btw)
