It looks like a couple of the sale prices haven't been activated yet.

Thank you, Paul.

I notice Jerome's New Treasury is the lead-off, claiming to be the largest cross-ref resource, with a measley 100,000 entries. Clearly, Jerome's Ultimate wasn't in sight ... 900,000 (and counting)!

Ok, back to the sale!

Well FL will say it’s not their faul, they don’t proof read anything, they just put up the Information that the publishers provide. They are happy to take people’s money but don’t expect them to fact check the advertising. When it comes to truth in advertising, they wash their hands of the truth. There just the middle man taking their cut.

Back to the sale I was missing only one resource so I picked up the big Nelson Party in a Boxed set to acquire it even cheaper do that resource didn’t feel left out of my library.

Well, Disciple, in all fairness, I was just trying to sneakily further Mr Smith's cause (his latest Ultimate Treasury).  Whether Logos might offer it, I don't know. But I really appreciate gentlemen as himself, who keep trying to further the value of daily Bible study. And his 'old' Treasury still seems quite popular.

This will sound a bit sassy, but I often think the FL dataset-game could as easily be solved with volumes like Jerome's, and far cheaper too.

But, nice you found a good buy!

I agree with you Densie Mr Smith's Ultimate Treasury should be our Logos libraries whlle taking nothing away from his volume that is avaible.

Okay, but seriously, how does the New Treasury compare to the old one that I got back when I first purchased Logos on 3.5" floppies (I think!) in the 1990's but still use constantly. 

(Yes it's cheap but those 8 bucks could go into my SSD fund instead...)

Are you sure it isn't the same one? Here is the link... and it has been around since the early 90's.

No. The original one is public domain. Still extremely useful!

It's actually 100,000 new entries. The old one already had 572,000 entries, according to its PDP.

I wish I could give a better review, but I have both volumes and use neither. I do use my SSD, though! Perhaps the numbers given earlier in this post will help you assess the newer one's value?

I did read Jerome's account of the Ultimate version. That one seems like a massive improvement, and I would certainly vote for its addition to the FL ecosystem. I'd even try using it if I had it. Perhaps more germane to your present purposes, Jerome's account of the improvements also points at certain weaknesses of the preceding version(s).

Thank you to everyone for calling attention to my book, The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge. 

It is currently offered at a very good price during this Nelson Sale.

If you do not have it, be sure to get this Bible study tool. It is far more complete than the original nineteenth century Treasury of Scripture Knowledge.

Didn't you have like a more recent one than those two old ones? If so, why hasn't Logos nor Accordance pulled the trigger in producing the newest, latest version? I think seeing the value of the other versions, the Ultimate version should be made available automatically by just starting to sell it without even bothering to put it in prepub.

I suspect the current publisher desires to keep my newest work (2016) an exclusive offering for a while yet. But if there were sufficient requests, perhaps that would prompt a release to other platforms like Logos.
