This time I've picked up:

https://www.logos.com/product/171131/puzzling-passages-in-paul-forty-conundrums-calmly-considered

https://www.logos.com/product/186392/acts-2-vols

https://www.logos.com/product/192104/galatians

https://www.logos.com/product/186293/the-epistles-of-john

https://www.logos.com/product/52793/god-heaven-and-har-magedon-a-covenantal-tale-of-cosmos-and-telos

This is the 3rd Wipf and Stock sale. I'm tempted to try the Cyril Barber books sometime, but keep finding other books that interest me. I may wait for the next Wipf and Stock sale though, as it does appear to come around every 15-18 months.

Mattillo:

The first one is Walter K’s reworded commentary on Malachi in the Preacher’s Commentary Series (They’re virtually the same).

The second one, I’d like to know too.  It looks interesting πŸ€” Maybe someone can pitch in πŸ‘πŸ˜πŸ‘Œ

Jan Krohn:

What did y'all buy from the Wipf & Stock sale? I'd get another two or three books if there are any good suggestions.

This is what I've bought in this (and the previous two) sales:

Beyond Death: Exploring the Evidence for Immortality | Logos Bible Software

The Fire That Consumes: A Biblical and Historical Study of the Doctrine of Final Punishment, 3rd ed. | Logos Bible Software

Thanks for the suggesting these two above. I've added them to my library.

Ah yes, that looks interesting. Three volumes for the price of one. Any comment would be appreciated.

Well, for $4.99 I can’t go wrong, so I got it πŸ‘πŸ˜πŸ‘Œ Sample pages might help (hint, hint...).

Check this thread from the previous sale: https://community.logos.com/forums/t/187322.aspx

There's probably also one from the time before that.

My top pick, what I posted there:

The last sale I picked up Biblical Eschatology by Jonathan Menn, and I just finished reading it recently. It was surprisingly good. Like, really really good. I'm going to use it whenever I next write or teach on the subject.

This is a reprint of Neusner's work originally published by Brill in 1971. It was considered groundbreaking work on the Pharisees when written (and still is by many accounts).

I found an interesting article by Neusner defending his view of the Pharisees against E.P. Sanders in Bulletin for Biblical Research, V2 in my Logos library. https://ref.ly/logosres/gs-bbrch-02?ref=Page.p+143 

This summary is from JETS:

Neusner, Jacob. The Rabbinic Traditions about the Pharisees before 70. 3 vols. Leiden: Brill, 1971. An enormously helpful source book with commentary and summary analysis (reprints from University of South Florida and Wipf & Stock).

David W. Chapman, “Jewish Intertestamental And Early Rabbinic Literature: An Annotated Bibliographic Resource Updated (Part 1),” Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society 55 55, no. 2 (2012): 238.

To get an idea of how important Neusner's work in this area is one could peruse https://ref.ly/logosres/gs-tynbul-43?ref=Page.p+353 

It would seem to be well worth $4.99.

How can you go wrong on 3 vols. , 1248 pages, by Jacob Neusner, for $4.99, with a 30 day money back guarantee? It's part of his 99 vol. bundle.

Buy it before they split them in three and sell them for $4.99 each πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Or it’s a mistake and then they remove it from the sale πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Four very convincing arguments to grab it rather sooner than later.

Got it.

Looking at this: James Leo Garrett Jr.’s two-volume Systematic Theology. Any experience or opinions on it?

I see that I have it but have never opened it. I got it as part of L9 Baptist Starter. That might be an even cheaper way to get it than the W & S sale:

From Grudem's [APPENDIX 2 Annotated Bibliography of Evangelical Systematic Theologies]

Garret, James Leo. Systematic Theology: Biblical, Historical, Evangelical. 2 vols. Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1990, 1995.
Garret was a professor of theology at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He is Baptistic and evangelical in his convictions, yet he gives much more space to representing different positions clearly than to arguing for his position. With 1,530 total pages, these volumes are an amazingly rich resource for historical, bibliographical, and biblical data on each doctrine treated.

Thanks Sean. I don't see it there. But it's a YMMV thing; I don't find the starter package good value for me.
