It seems that from 2013 onwards, there is (or was) a yearly high-caliber theological conference in Los Angeles, the proceedings of which were covered in books edited by Oliver Crisp and Fred Sanders and published by Zondervan. Those are very interesting books, and some of them are available in Logos - Zondervan even bundled the first five years i.e. 2013 through 2017:

This picture is from Amazon which ships those dead-tree things (but also Kindle editions, if wanted). Someone put this bundle into the Logos shop:

https://www.logos.com/product/188966/explorations-in-constructive-dogmatics-the-los-angeles-theology-conference-collection-2013-2017 

Guess what happened: As the product page shows, the proceedings from a yearly conference in 2013 through 2017 yields three volumes, namely those from 2016, 2017 - indicated with green arrows above - and (a nice trick to catch the unaware) 2018!

Well, yeah. This setup of the product probably was chosen due to the fact that the first two volumes in this series were sold (and maybe at that time only sold) in another Zondervan Theology bundle. Now the individual books from 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018 and even beyond are available in the store - indicated with yellow arrows. Shouldn't we be glad? I'd like to be - and could have put this post in one of the many that suggest fixing errors in product pages. Rename the bundle to "...collection 2016 - 2018" and we're good to go! Nearly.

Guess which volume I was looking to buy, which fell through the cracks in this exercise? Of course: Vol 3 from 2015, "Locating Atonement", indicated by the red box above. Help me with your vote at https://feedback.faithlife.com/boards/logos-book-requests/posts/locating-atonement

Thanks FL for fixing the bundle, which now lost the misleading year-numbers in its title and clearly indicates it contains 2016-2018 Yes

Still looking for "Locating Atonement", though.

Why is Locating Atonement not in Logos? Every other volume from this series is!

FL, come on!

If they gauge interest by the feedback site, it may not come ever - so far I'm the only one who voted for that

I received the Zondervan Academic e-mail today regarding deep discounts on volumes in this series.  I'm guessing Logos / Faithlife will not be offering comparable discounts, in light of some or all of the volumes they sell are in the Logos Research Editions.  I'm hoping I'm wrong.  Does anybody have any insight into this?

According to the Zondervan e-mail, today is the final day of the big sale on volumes in this series.
