Why is it taking the Adam Clarke Commentary so long to become available?

Yes

I hope more people are willing to place a bid.  This is a top notch resource!

Well said Mark! I'm only interested in the commentaries anyway.  So Logos should probably split this collection in 2 (one: commentaries, two: the other stuff).

DAL

Yes

 

I agree that the vast majority of people who would consider Adam Clarke are interested in the commentaries.  Really, only someone very interested in Methodist history / heritage is going to want the rest.  There are a few of us, but not that many.  This collection should be split.

Would you say his commentary is better than Wesley's?

Absolutely.  And this is coming from someone who truly respects and loves Wesley.

Clarke's commentary is much more through than Wesley's.  Wesley's "commentary" would be what he called "Explanatory Notes", more like a "study Bible" notes than a full blown commentary.

Absolutely correct.  Clarke's Commentary is just that, an in-depth commentary.  It's a fabulous and well known resource that I think Logos needs to make available asap.

Closing on Friday. Still quite expensive.

I smell an imminent Methodist base package to explain the jump to production.

NB.Mick:
- the price point is much too high for a work that may be had for free elsewhere?

Indeed.

I've been in at $20 for over two years, basically so I would get notified when it was about to cross the line and could then decide whether to adjust my bid. I won't be adjusting it to the current $90 or anywhere near that. A ridiculous price for a work that is in the public domain in my opinion.

It is expensive, but I'm still buying it.  This has been a "holy grail" resource for me since moving from another bible software program to Logos several years ago.  To have this commentary working in Logos is a dream come true for me!  Thanks Logos!!

Looking on the bright side, it is now down to a mere $80 Big Smile

Bid here if you are interested

If all those who had bid $50 would raise their bids to $80 we would all likely get it for $70.

If it becomes part of a new base package in the next few weeks then we could trade it in for the base package of simply cancel the order if the base package gets released first.

Thanks to all those who responded, it moved significantly closer to $70 today..... we still have a chance to get it over the line at $70.... 
would probably take too many people to move their $50 bids to $60 now given the short time remaining so we may have to bid $80 if we want to be sure of getting this....  I wonder what it will jump to after noon time tomorrow ..... Confused

Went in for $80.  Hopefully it'll drop down to, at least, $70.

I think if just a few who bid at $50 or $60 would go up to $70 we could all get it for $70.  It's really, really close.

$70

I just got my email telling me I missed out at $50. I am surprised it went for as much as it did. I note it is now $179.
