Wow!!!!😀😀😀😀

PS Be careful as the Free Book of the Month page isn't correctly showing which books you may own.

Agreed. It seems someone went a little nutty with the sales stamp this month :)

I know I'm an outlier here in several ways (and haven't looked much yet) but what are the high values you're seeing?

i'm not able to "add to cart" from the page. I have to click on the book link and then a) see if I own it and b) add it to cart

I like Apples.  Especially Honeycrisp.

Well, I  can't even load logos.com because of security issues.

I was wondering if it was just me, or if Logos was "recycling" past sales/free book of the month.  I had all but one, the D.A. Carson book.

Hi Everyone, 

We had an issue with our free book of the month page showing incorrect ownership. The page has been updated and should be working correctly now. 

Thanks for your patience, we hope you enjoy the extra additions to the Free Book of the Month this month!.

Not necessarily recycled titles but possible. Though it maybe that they are simply in libraries or bundles you have previously purchased. For me it is rare as hen’s teeth for free or heavily discounted title to be one I don’t already own. As your library grows you will find that you own more of the FBOM titles as they are offered.

For a short moment, all (?) Zondervan Video Lectures were shown with a significant discount (up to 85%). However, just as I wanted to place an order, the price had reverted to the regular price. Sad. It looks like this was a short-term error. Or maybe it is a sign of a sale to come.

Black Friday Sale maybe but just as likely an error.

Yes, it looks like it was a hiccup. For instance, 

https://www.logos.com/product/185414/introduction-to-biblical-interpretation-video-lectures

is now 26% off, while a few hours ago it was offered with 78% off (see screenshot from the tab that I still had open).

Looks like there are two effbottoms* this month...and both appear to be worth the time. Excellent!

*effbottom = FBOTM = "free book of the month" :-)

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Will add to the official dictionary:

LOGOSIAN: Member of a secret conspiracy to find the absolute lowest price for books from a little known company in Bellingham Washington (LKCBW). Elites are characterized by finding workarounds for both software glitches, and web-offers.

VERBUMITES: A separate tribe not to be confused with the Perizites of yesterday's yore. Often found grumbling because their software is missing obvious functionality, or their blogs haven't seen activity in years.

PBs: An underground network of nere-do-well publishers, often associated with the 'restoration' movement that the LKCBW is unaware of.

CPs/PPs: Location of books where the LKCBW places, when they're unlikely to make a profit. Adds to search results too.

PACKAGES/COLLECTIONS: Game tokens in play by Logosians. Activity maximizes every 2 years in the autumn.

EFFBOTTOM: Target of Logosian searches in the early hours of each calendar month (unrelated to lunar calendar searching).

Agreed. These two, both by Victor Hamilton, are especially worth mentioning:

Handbook on the Pentateuch | Logos Bible Software

, recommended in the Denver Seminary bibliography, and John F. Evans recommends it in his Guide to Biblical Commentaries: “A solid content survey, which has often seen used as a textbook.”

Exodus: An Exegetical Commentary | Logos Bible Software

Regarding the above, Evans writes: ”well-researched and makes a serious academic contribution”, “also written in a lively style readers find engaging”, “the strength of the work is his patient, verse-by-verse approach.”

Also, Bill T. Arnold’s NCBC Commentary is recommended by Denver Seminary. This is by the same author:

Encountering the Book of Genesis: A Study of Its Content and Issues | Logos Bible Software

Says Evans: the NCBC “builds on his upper-level college textbook, Encountering the Book of Genesis (1998)” and “the Encountering book is a most inviting survey, with its well-written, well-researched text, accompanied by teaching material (stated aims, study questions, etc.), many pictures and maps, brief discussion of authorship and scholarly methods of interpretation. Encountering would be useful to the pastor in planning an adult Sunday School class.”

So: Good and cheap books!

Thanks for those references. Keith Mathison also recommends the works by Victor Hamilton on Exodus and Genesis, which encouraged me to buy the Exodus commentary and the handbook on the Pentateuch. 

I'm currently debating the value on single volume commentary on the NT by Robert Gundry.
