Short answer no. However, sometimes Zondervan follow up some point later with a sale at Faithlife. I think $9.99 per volume has been the best ever.

Anyone knows anything about the "Themes" volumes? Are they just excerpts from the full WBC commentaries without the verse-by-verse sections? Or are they newly written, different resources (their website calls them "companion volumes")?

Can anyone who owns any of those "Themes" volumes comment on their usefulness?

I've been waiting for them to do that sale again. I was hoping this meant they would do an $8.99 sale. I have a couple of volumes I've been wanting to get. Come on Faithlife! Take my money! lol

Occasionally the WBC has gone on sale for $399, but I think that is as cheap as I've seen it in Logos.

From the product page description...

Overview

A companion series to the acclaimed Word Biblical Commentary.

Finding the great themes of the books of the Bible is essential to the study of God’s Word and to the preaching and teaching of its truths. These themes and ideas are often like precious gems: they lie beneath the surface and can only be discovered with some difficulty. While commentaries are useful for helping readers understand the content of a verse or chapter, they are not usually designed to help the reader to trace important subjects systematically within a given book a Scripture.

The Word Biblical Themes series helps readers discover the important themes of a book of the Bible. This series distills the theological essence of a given book of Scripture and serves it up in ways that enrich the preaching, teaching, worship, and discipleship of God’s people.

Word Biblical Themes are an ideal resource for any reader who has used and benefited from the Word Biblical Commentary series, and will help pastors, bible teachers, and students as they seek to understand and apply God's word to their ministry and learning.

So they have different content and are not a abridged version of the commentaries. The product page is here

I have them but have not used them as yet. Just a quick look shows them to be VERY different.

Here's a sample of the Daniel themes resource; you can see themes from some of the chapters and the beginning of one chapter...

Thanks Don. I've purchased the series on the other platform, as it doesn't seem likely the sale will come to Logos anytime soon.

On searching for the Themes, I see they are ridiculously cheap on kindle, so I've bought them there.

$28.99 kindle 15 volume set, not bad! I don’t need them now, but I might consider them in the future.

Wow the price went up to $159 in Amazon 🤦🏻‍♂️ I should’ve pulled the trigger! Oh well, still don’t need them yet 😂
