Received an email from another software company regarding a special offer for John Phillips complete commentary set (27 volumes).

I would love to see Logos add this to their product line

I am unfamiliar with this series even though I recognize the name. Can you tell me what sort of treatment this set gives to the text? Is there another series you would think to be very similar in approach? Why do you value it? Thanks. (Not that I can be tempted to go buy it in Logos format at this point.)

Dr. Phillips does not a technical approach, but his commentaries are very well written and probably focus more on exposition and application. They are easy to follow and understand. His approach would probably be associated with a more conservative theology.  I have the entire series in print, but if reasonably priced would purchse a Logos version.

Here are a couple of preview links that may interest you.

Thanks for the links. To further answer Mark's question, Looking at the Daniel sample page 55ƒ noted that he would be classified as a Dispensationalist. I thought so, but it was nice to be able to verify.

Thanks, Fred. From those it would seem these are definitely expository commentaries and Dr. Phillips is adept at alliterative outlines.

I don't see myself as a prospective buyer, but I imagine there would be quite a few who would be.

I'd say he alliterates more and perhaps explains a little more than John G. Butler - over all, he's good.

I totally agree. I would love to have this set in Logos. I have a few individual volumes, but the set would be wonderful. Yes, Dr. Phillips constant alliteration might turn some off, however these volumes are preacher's gold.

I have John Phillips commentary series in book form (New Testament) and I can say that I am not impressed. ($175 two years ago) I rarely use them.

Is that because you don't like the content or because they are not in digital format?

I would likely use them more in sermon prep if they were digital. What I do not care for in the JP commentaries is the same problem I find with many other commentaries, they tell you what the motives and thoughts of the Biblical Characters are even though the Scripture does not and they add to the narrative in what seems an attempt to make it more dramatic. An example would be from the JP commentary on Matthew 12.

                              Looking the Pharisees in the eye, knowing what their reaction would be, aware that they wanted to get rid of Him

                              and that they would seize on His words, Jesus said, "In this place is one greater than the temple" (12:6).
