A little disappointing that Moo's work on Romans is not one of the March Madness titles included. I'm sure most people who voted for him were expecting it to be included

It is disappointing, but perhaps it's because it was just on sale last month:

(It's not listed explicitly in that post, but it was included in the sale).

Well I can only speak for myself, but I never buy anything the month preceding what I know will be a big Logos sale. If I'd known it definitely wasn't going to be included in the March Madness titles, I may have bought it. Emphasis on the 'may' Big Smile

Incidentally, I note that the NIVAC on Romans is included in both events........

Edited to add - I seem to recall his 'Encountering the Book of Romans' was also included

Haven't you learned yet? MM is a marketing gimmick driving traffic to Logos website to cross-promote their OTHER products. regardless of the outcome (which is inherently rigged by Logos allowing multiple votes) Logos reserves the right to control the actual resources that are subject to the sale. So, just because author xyz wins and hets 75% off, does not matter that his $100,000 book can be bought with this discount.

Pretty lame, Logos!

Proposed solution: to save reputation, you can make the following changes:

  • enforce 1 bid per person
  • all resources by the chosen authors are eligible

I was right all along! I was 99.9% sure NICNT Romans by Moo would not go on sale for the reason you just stated - It was on sale last month! Plus, is the most expensive of the other commentaries, which explains why Encountering the Book of Romans and NIVAC Romans both by Moo are on sale again now and not NICNT.  I think I've pretty much figured out this MM marketing thing.  My prediction Carson takes it by storm again (at least 2nd place).  Maybe Fee will be 1st or 2nd, but I don't see why people are voting for Fee instead of Wright.  Maybe people are hoping against all hope that NICNT 1st Corinthians by Fee might be offered in the end, but I highly doubt it.  Of course, if Wright wins it's no guarantee that his new works will be made available either so in the end it's a whatever.  I'd settle for 45% or even 50% off the authors I want.  So far it's been great to get some of the authors I want at a fair discount.

Well, I thought it was the most expensive of the other 2 Moo Romans commentaries, but yes, Leon Morris' volume on John is a little price, even with the discount, so I'll pass on it.

Shows up as 43$ (and some change) in my cart with the code applied... I suspect if you saw 72$ before they've fixed it now, or else its a typo somewhere. The cart price is the price you'd pay.

Very disappointing that the NICNT isn't included. Doesn't seem to fit with:
"For each author in the tournament, Logos has made as many titles as possible available for sale."

Oh it fits perfectly! Just look at the key word in the sentence: "Possible" which means it was only a possibility and since NICNT Romans by Moo was on sale about a month ago, then it's not "Possible" to have it again for sale this month, just like Leon Morris' PNTC volume on Romans (though is not as expensive as Moo's NICNT volume).  No of those two are on sale on MM2014.  

I still took advantage of Moo's and Morris' PNTC volumes on sale which has brought down my dynamic pricing quite a bit.

Looking forward to Friday's new deals and the final 2.  This year I saved up a little to grow my library with the good discounts MM has.
