Don Brundige:

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?

Don,

I have read some of your posts that you have written today.  It's clear to me that you are upset about something - what that is - I'm not quite sure, but perhaps that is between you and the Lord.  Except for the OP, Bob Pritchett, the rest of us on this thread are users of the Logos Bible Software and neither work for nor officially represent the company.  If you have a gripe against Logos, please contact Bob Pritchett of Logos (I think his email is bob@logos.com). But don't take out your frustrations on us - we are customers like you. Venting your anger on this forum is probably not going to address the issues that you are most concerned about.

Let us know how we can pray for you. May the Lord bless you with His love and peace that surpass all understanding.

David

Don Brundige:

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 

Don,  Please, can we have a time out?  I think everyone is trying to help.  And you certainly deserve a response from Logos to the issue.  I think a call to Logos on Monday would straighten everything out.

Please?  Smile

EDIT:  Sorry.  I just saw your other post, Don, that you called Logos and returned the product on the other thread.  I think some of us may be getting confused on the feedback you are giving on multiple subjects on the forums.  I hope things are getting sorted out to your satisfaction.

Smile

Spurgeon's work sounds great (I have four books of his sermons in paper). Maybe even the non-Christians will like them, or not.

Brian. E.:
wait.... is this referring to E-Sword? could you explain your post further

Sorry, Brian, I keep forgetting I'm not always speaking with old, fellow Baptists who grew up in the Southern US. The Sword of the Lord was (and still is, I think) a fundamentalist Baptist newspaper. It had/has a reputation for publishing Spurgeon's (and Edward's, on occasion) sermons and editing out parts that could be construed as Reformed theology. Here's the Wikipedia article.

If this resource is suspect of capitalising on Spurgeon's work in an improper way, then there are others that should be questioned... ACCS, Crossway Commentaries and the new Reformation Commentary on Scripture to name a few. 

From my point of view, as long as appropriate citations to the originals and credit is given to the author, there is nothing wrong with this sort of publication.

I am overjoyed that you are doing this, Bob. Thanks!

Personally, I think that some people should read Wayne Grudem's book Business for the Glory of God. Grudem has helped me to remove the last vestiges of socialism from my psyche. And believe me, I was a real socialist before I knew Christ as my Savior.

There is nothing wrong with seeking a profit.I am happy about the things I have purchased and kept. My money was well-spent, especially considering the absolute SUPERIOR customer service I have received!! No company comes close to being as nice as Logos has been to me.

I am a HAPPY CUSTOMER! May God bless Logos and may Logos continue to be able to attract top-notch IT talent (no easy task).

Jack Caviness:

Contrary to the  one malcontent, I applaud this effort and have entered my bid for the CP and the Pre-Pub. Great idea.

Agreed

Bob Pritchett:
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.

Hi Bob,

At $25 with bidding closing tomorrow, it looks like the experiment with "Spurgeon Commentary Collection: New Testament Letters (9 vols.)" is a success.  That's 95 cents less than the "regular price" for Spurgeon's commentary on Galatians currently on pre-pub for $14.95.

Do you think this plan could also work for original content created by Logos?  "The Bible in Seven Acts, with Slides (7 vols.)" (http://www.logos.com/product/29691) has been moving very slowly, probably because of the price.  Maybe it would get to market faster, generate more sales for Logos and "serve more people at a lower price" if it was moved to community pricing.  I'd like to give it a try.  There's probably other pre-pub candidates that could also benefit from such a move, but this is the one I'd like to bid on.

If only we had until evening in Bellingham, WA. The CP goes into Pre-Pub in about 1.5 hours from now, which then means price bids stop.  Therefore, if you are on the fence about this one, a decision must be made soon.

I'm looking forward to these resources.

Correction:  I must have thought it was 08/01 that it goes to Pre-Pub.  Well, we do have another day, so I think we can hit the $20 mark.
