Hello,

I have ordered the prepub of the 4 vol. Kretzmann’s Popular Commentary https://www.logos.com/product/42072/kretzmanns-popular-bible-commentary . It ships on the 15th this month. However when I look in my library I already own a two volume edition of the work - which I can’t find on the Logos website - but the Logos product number is LLS:PPLCMMBBLNT & 2022-0329T14:34:42Z.

So my question is: Are these the same exact resource and I just have early access somehow? Or are these two different resources? Or the same book and I already own one - so I should cancel my pre-pub? Or are these two different books with different content? 

Anybody have the same issue? 

Thanks all

Hi Liam:

I, too, have pre-ordered the 4-volume set. However, I do not have the 2-volume set you mention in my library. I wonder if the 2-volume is a Wordsearch edition that was recently updated. (I was never a Wordsearch customer.)

Ah interesting Robert. I think I’ll have to cancel the prepub then so I don’t get a resource I already own! Thanks!

Or, maybe wait and have a look at the new resource, then decide if it's worth $16 to also have that one, or return it within the 30-day window. It's possible the content / formatting / tagging is superior.

I'm not familiar with Kretzmann... might I be able to gather your thoughts on him? Calvinist/Arminian? Premil/Amil? etc.

He was Lutheran. I think this is about him:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O._P._Kretzmann 

I recall placing the community pricing bid based on the enthusiasm of our beloved Lutheran brother, Milford (and a number of other old forum friends):  https://community.logos.com/forums/t/74374.aspx

Did you have this resource in WordSearch?

It was indeed a resource that came over from WordSearch and I did own a license from WS.

I had placed a pre-pub order (why I don't know) sometime last year.

So When I looked at the product page is showed that I pre-ordered it. It also showed a price of 60 some odd dollars on the product page.

When I looked at my open pre-pub orders it showed I had ordered it at $16.

When I looked at the full pre-pub list, that list showed that I owned it already.

My Logos Library does show that I have a permanent license for the product.

So I deleted the pre-pub and now the product page correctly shows that I own the resource.

 To answer the 2 vs 4 volumes question, the resource is a 4 volume set 2-OT and 2-NT all combined into 1-OT and 1-NT volume.

Hi Roy:

Maybe you bid on it in Community Pricing in Eternity Past (perhaps before you had it in Wordsearch) and 6/11/2021 was when it was moved to Pre-Pub status.

This could very well be. I know I have put in a "Community Pricing" bid on just about every thing of even semi-interest there. Especially on the collections of commentaries that are languishing there,

Roy I think you are correct. Looks like a wordsearch product that I already had. Just strange that it still was going to allow me to pay for the prepub. I must have had it as a wordsearch product. I did have some - though I got them as a bundled package for extremely cheap and almost never used my wordsearch library - so I don’t recall what was in it really.

It wasn't.
