I already own the AYBD and would highly recommend it as one of the best dictionaries Logos has available.

I've been wanting the Commentary of the NT use of the OT for a while now and might consider purchasing.

Could someone shine some light on the IVP OT Bundle? I'm especially interested if it offers more information on OT compared to the AYBD. I'd love to here from someone who owns both already and how they are utilizing both at the same time.

Thanks! And Happy Thanksgiving. Let's rejoice and be thankful in our Savior. We have so much to be continually thankful for.

I bought AYBD a couple of years back...

Well, I'm glad you didn't miss out on the 'Customize' price (which was definitely the best I've seen!), but

Andy Evans:
At full price Tongue Tied...

(I payed $189.95 two Christmases ago. My sales rep gave me an extra -$10 on the '12 Days' price.)

As have I. In several threads, actually. But it's getting better. The 'dots' now show up where they should.

So glad and thankful for what I already have, and that I won't be tempted by Logos this Friday. Some good prices to be had.

You expressed my feelings, exactly.

Yes

Alan:

I'm very keen on the AYBD but can't see anywhere where I can have a look inside.

Can someone please point me to a link or even post an extract of an Intro to Mark's and John's Gospel as a sample.

Both entries are roughly 15 pages, give or take, in their entirety.

It is very good to see the AYBD on offer... I don't recall seeing this discounted before. 

Ehh??? The AYBD has been on sale numerous times in the last two years. It's one of the most frequently discounted resources out there. In fact, you could have bought it $55 cheaper ($154.95) just a few days ago: http://community.logos.com/forums/p/58483/416248.aspx#416248.

You can still get it for $154 if you are upgrading, and I suspect that if you have upgraded to L5 and you were to  contact Logos sales you would possible get it for that price...possibly?

It was removed from the 'Customize' page some days ago, or do you see something different?

yes, I just added it to my basket, it appeared in the customise window in the 'What other customers bought' section...I think its a 'rolling' segment of the page...

It's under the RECOMMENDATIONS section on the left of your basket.

Of course you need to have an Upgrade in your basket to get this price.  This low price is fixed to Upgrades.

If you missed this and have already upgraded, then a call to Logos sales may...possibly...do the trick?

Can't see any such sections on my page.

Graeme Adams:

Already looked under 'Dictionaries'. And I'm not the only one who's noticed it's gone.

HOWEVER, I tried adding it from the Black Friday page, and it turned up in the cart with the lower price.Smile Doesn't matter to me, since I've already got it, but it might be good for others to know. $55 pays for a huge chunk of the Crossgrade.Smile

I think that if you've already upgraded, the calculator will recognize that and give the lower price automatically. I believe I've read others report that. If not, a call will almost certainly "do the trick".

Agreed, I'm also not tempted.  Basically, I either have it already or I'm not very interested.  I was hoping that by participating in the Like-a-thon I would get something on the list that would be more interesting, but I guess not.

Have not had that problem with Logos sites. However, I do have similar problems with my go-to news website, and often shift to FireFox to go there.

I agree. When I looked at the top twelve I thought 'really?', especially as some of the titles had been on sale already in the last 18 months such as ICC.  I was hoping for something we hadn't seen on discount such as Anchor Bible (Commentary) or Interpretation.

I highly recommend the Commentary of the NT Use of the OT. It is a specialized work unlike any other because of its focus.

The IVP OT Bundle are the 1st 2 OT volumes of the IVP "Black" Dictionary series. Many have the NT volumes from the IVP Essentials Collections (a must for every Logos user). This series of dictionaries focus entirely on a particular part of the scripture and bring depth and analysis that you will not find elsewhere. I am constantly amazed at the material that I find in the series.

This series is not a duplication of any other dictionary/encyclopedia.

Most of them have been on sale 2-3 times/year for at least two years, and usually for better prices.

Me too! AYB at 50% off...Big Smile

What's more, AYB has twice as many likes as ICC.

But I've stopped hoping for anything good for Black Friday.  I've bought both Christmases and both March Madnesses, but none of the three Black Fridays since I purchased Logos.

The AYB was appearing as discounted on the 'top products' page for those who have upgraded to L5.

Unfortunately, it was nowhere near 50% Crying

AYB is at the very top of my wish list. I think it will need to wait until next year... at least!

There are some great resources there. However, my upgrade package from L4 Platinum to L5 Diamond, plus Hermenia / Continental Bundle is all I will be able to afford for quite some time,deal or no deal.

But I enjoy seeing the deals offered.
