That is great news to many of us.  Thank you, Bob, for placing several of Spurgeon's commentaries on Community Pricing.  This should make Spurgeon's work in digital format even more accessible.

For those who want to add Spurgeon to their Libraries, place your bid in CP now.

No. I am not his voice - he has no voice... therefore when you (LOGOS) want to PROFIT from HIS writings ... rape.

Don, there is nothing wrong with expressing your opinion but your tone has no place in these forums. I would encourage you to review the forum guidelines - http://community.logos.com

if Spurgeon were alive he would preach against

You could always look on the bright side: that they won't edit out the Calvinism, as the The Sword of the Lord did.

Yes, I know, profit is BAD.   Super Angry

I must conclude that you are a socialist.

Bruce,

I have read all of the guidelines, and do not believe I have violated any of them . 

You seem quite pretentious with your attitude, like you own this forum.

I guess your thoughts are more important than anyone else's ...

What's the point of a forum if only your opinion matters?

 I'm sorry George .... I didn't realize it was a venom free zone. 

Go back to your euphoria. I'll leave you to sugar emotion. peace and happiness to all ... how's that. 

I bet I've invested more in the company than you, George.

Sorry, but I don't believe a word you say since you have fewer than 10 posts at this point. I can't imagine anyone with that few posts being an avid Logosian.  Speak the truth.

Beloved:

George Somsel:
You mean like this?

Yes George,

Like that. What I had in mind, was the Dialogues which I just received from CP. I thought it would include the Greek.

It would be nice to have them all in one neat bundle, but you most likely do have them.  If not, I think Perseus is still free.

I think it's time for a deep breath.  Even though I've fallen short myself, I always appreciate, and consult form time to time, the Forum Guidelines.  #3 seems particularly helpful right now.

As Milford would say:  Peace and Blessings!!!!  (Maybe with more exclamation points.)

How's this for the truth :

Just because you POST a lot George, doesn't mean you spend a lot with LOGOS ...

Show me your total spend & we'll see who puts their money where their mouth is..

thanks.

Guideline 3 applies here. "Please treat each other with the love, courtesy, respect, and kindness that you would if you were sitting in your living room together." I believe that many of the words you have been using do not do this. I don't feel pretentious - perhaps a bit taken aback by your approach.

I have not written any topic or comment that should not be spoken in any or every living room .. 

You seem to not be able to process any thought that is not sugar coated with the dis-reality that everything LOGOS does is perfect.

So, pretentious you, invoke my need to read the guidelines.

Chicken feed.  I've spent well over $20,000.  I'll bet that Rosie and Matthew (Super Tramp) have spent considerably more than even that.  I'm sure there are others as well.

show me the total big mouth .

My point is just because I have less then some number of posts that you deem important my words are not less truthful, as you accuse, or less important, as you also accuse 

get a grip on reality .. Your number of Posts have gone to your head

Bob Pritchett:

Some of you noticed that we put the next nine volumes of the Spurgeon Commentary on Community Pricing, not Pre-Pub.

I just wanted to emphasize the underlying message: Logos really does want to make Bible study content available to as many people as possible at the lowest prices we can. Community Pricing is a really useful tool for finding the shape of the price / demand curve.

(1,000 people paying $10 returns $10,000 in sales -- and so does 1 person paying $10,000. But maybe 1,000 buyers is unlikely, and 1 person paying $10,000 is also unlikely. Would 10 people pay $1,000? Would 100 pay $100? 400 pay $25? They all net $10,000, but it can be hard to know what is the lowest price that will maximize units. Community Pricing helps us discover that.)

While Spurgeon's works are in the public domain, the Spurgeon Commentary is a new editorial product that we are producing here at Logos: it is a collation, compilation, and re-organization of Spurgeon's sermons and other writing into a more familiar and easy-to-use 'verse by verse' commentary. While we aren't re-writing Spurgeon, we are doing a large amount of new editorial work.

The Spurgeon Commentary: Galatians volume was a success on Pre-Pub, but we're wondering if we could serve more people at a lower price. The nine-volume (already at 60% for just $35!) is an experiment to find out. If it works, we'll look at offering more of our original editorial products, not just older content, through Community Pricing.

-- Bob

Bob this is something I feel is useful and I am glad to see it on Community Pricing. Helps out the little guy like me

has my vote

True enough George. You'll get no argument from me on both accounts.

Meanwhile, Jesus kept on growing wiser and more mature, and in favor with God and his fellow man.

I'll tell you precisely what I think you are.  That is a TROLL, a person who deliberately sets out to cause dissention in an internet discussion.

Peace!           *smile*                    Just thinking ....         and ...    praying a bit .....

           May God grant me His Holy Spirit to strengthen my faith -- to always accept (by His Grace!) the forgiveness and Love my Saviour Jesus earned for me through His Death for me -- and may He help me love others .....   particularly those in the Household of Faith...

The One we follow -- Our Lord and Master said:

John 15:12–17 (ESV)

12“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.

13Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.

14You are my friends if you do what I command you.

15No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.

16You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.

17These things I command you, so that you will love one another.

 

Philippians 4:  4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. 5 Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand..........

I didn't want to be specific but I think it is necessary at this point. I am going to comment about both threads you are currently in and not this one only. Here are a few examples.

  1. You seem to have a general tone of anger toward Logos and everyone else here.
  2. Using an offensive word like rape to describe Logos’ strategy to sell Spurgeon resources that they have developed in a completely different format.
  3. Telling Liam to "Grow a brain".

I don't believe that this is the type of language that aligns with the guidelines.
