That link will only show AYB for the short term until newer things are released after it, so here's a link that will work whenever someone stumbles across this thread:

I'm wondering if we buy these as logos4 or lbxlls files? Can anyone from Logos tell us? Thanks, Martin.

At least in the New Testament they should all be lbxlls -files.

EDIT: just the most interesting volumes in the New Testament in Logos would have been exactly $471. I got the NT set including the old Mt -volume in Accordance on a sale for $449.99. The interesting NT volumes are: First Corinthians by Joseph A. Fitzmyer, The Letters to the Thessalonians by Abraham J. Malherbe, Letter to Philemon by Joseph A. Fitzmyer, II Corinthians by Victor Paul Furnish, Colossians by Markus Barth, Helmut Blanke and Astrid B. Beck, The Letter of James by Luke Timothy Johnson, Mark 1–8 by Joel Marcus, Mark 8–16 by Joel Marcus, Galatians by J. Louis Martyn, 2 Peter, Jude by Jerome H. Neyrey, Epistles of John by Raymond Edward Brown.

I have Isaiah 56–66 by Joseph Blenkinsopp as printed matter.

EDIT2: I have not had a thorough look at the OT volumes. I just bought Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary (btw: the price for ZIBBCOT can't be negotiated lower on phone, not even when ordering other things at the same time). Unless I return ZIBBCOT I doubt I will afford to buy anything in Logos this weekend, on Monday or in April. I just put ~ $1,500 (which I had managed to save since end of December 2013) on a savings account with OK interest where the money will be locked for a year, to prevent me from ordering too many books.

Some time ago one user said the whole set is lbxlls -files. I doubt that has changed unless there are some very recent OT volumes which would then be logos4, but only if they are very recent and the rest of the volumes would still be lbxlls:

Most of them are lbxlls files, though a few, more recently released, are logos4 (the 2nd volume of Mark, the 2nd volume of Proverbs, Nahum, and Jonah):

This is good news.  And thanks to Unix for sharing his thoughts on the most valuable volumes.

Would others please share their thoughts on which volumes of Anchor are most to be desired?

My exposure to the series is pretty limited, but  the one I bought in paper is Jacob Milgrom's 3 Leviticus volumes.

They are unparalleled IMHO for a technical study of the book. With caveats and considerations. He writes as a Jew, not a Christian, so he does not reveal Jesus on purpose, but he is there nonetheless.His knowledge of the rabbinic literature is vast, his mastery of Hebrew is obvious ("native?").

If you're going to study Leviticus with depth, it is a worthy three volume set.

Now I'm just trying to convince my stubborn budget that I can get them in Logos too.

I am excited to see this collection broken up.  I have never used this set - the bundled price makes it inaccessible to this student.  But I am glad that I can now buy a volume or two that I know I will use, and see how I like it.  

Thanks Logos!

Anyone know what kind of commentary The Wisdom of Ben Sira by Patrick W. Skehan and Alexander A. Di Lella is and whether it really was revised in 1995? Looking at the information on AZ it seems to be originally from 1988.
Do You suspect it would be a better option to wait for the Hermeneia volume (which I have no idea when it will get done)?

bump! No hurry, but I haven't received answers to my questions in the above post.

Btw, I'm photo-copying for private use from the newer Jeremiah -volumes by Jack Lundbom, so far I've got some interesting pages from the Introduction. Not sure what verses would be worth the cost, as I'm not studying at that particular uni they are not giving me discounted photo-copying prices.

..

Note the 2008 above vs the 1974 for the copyright.    The preface (final available version) is 1985. Scanning the bibliography (which is most often to be in updated), the latest date is the early 80's, with most grouped in the 1960s and thense early 1900s.

If indeed you were interesting in Ben, the various 2nd Temple monographs have far more recent information, since Ben seems to have been the only reasonably stable writer after Esther finished her autobiography.

I have been waiting for this for years. It is difficult to express my excitement, so I will just say: Thank you Logos!!!

Can someone give me a list of the Anchor Yale Volumes that have been written by Jewish scholars? Somebody that owns the whole set as well as the denomination tags could probably very easily compile such a list for me. Thank you!

I would have to say The book of Daniel & Revelation, then the three from Isaiah, then the three from Jeremiah. But this is because of looking into end times..

But all of these would be a pretty penny.Sad

Genesis Leviticus Numbers and Deuteronomy were written by Jews.

Their introduction states that: "The book of Daniel was written as resistance literature, to strengthen and console loyal Jews of the second century BC who had to endure religious, economic, and social oppression at the hands of Antiochus I."

https://www.logos.com/product/41441/the-anchor-yale-bible-the-book-of-daniel  

And thus would be useless for studying end times as the AYB declares Daniel to be a second century fake. Just saved myself $31.95.
