The only possible way i see is if logos would delete this resource and repost it with a minimum bid increment of $150 or higher. Otherwise, it is a dead end

My bid has been $150 gor over 2 years.

Awesome resource, well worth the $150, perhaps much more.

Same goes for the Bampton Lectures. Unbelievable resource. Needs price bump.

Perhaps the only way this will get through is if Logos decides to subsidize the cost of producing it with revenues from other products. Then maybe they'll recoup their costs somewhere down the road. Or maybe not. But they will have done a great services to Christian scholarship. I know they need to stay in business too, so only if they can squeeze out some profit from somewhere else to apply to producing this. But it really would be great to have it...

The sensible thing for Logos to do first when resources get stalled in CP would be to send out an e-mail to all bidders, advising them to raise their bids if they want to see it produced. Instead Bob writes a post on the forums once a year or so, which reaches far to few of the bidders to be very meaningful.

This would be such a great resource but it sort of reminds me of the delicious 5th Ave Deli club sandwich I am trying to eat right now ... it's just too big to consume at one sitting.  Many have suggested/requested breaking it up into smaller, bite-size pieces (the resource - not my sandwich).  And that's a good idea except one runs the risk of not getting all of the pieces produced. 

Perhaps Logos would consider producing this in two parts - not in length but in terms of production.  Phase one:  All volumes, text only, no hyperlinks, correct only the most egregious ocr errors ... it will be a 'dirty' but inexpensive (relatively) resource.  At least users would have the full text to consult/browse.  Phase two: The 'dirty' text goes back into CP in order to raise enough bids so the set can be cleaned and hyperlinked. 

Stop at Phase one if all you need or want is the quick, dirty, and inexpensive version.  Proceed to Phase two if you want or need all of the bells and whistles.

Finished the sandwich and I hate myself ... I ... just ... could ... not ... stop!

sounds like what you are suggesting is that we make it a Vyrso resource first, and then later they can convert it to Logos via cp/pp if they so chose.

I'd be down for that...

In essence, yes.  But even if it weren't up to Vyrso QC standards in terms of its ocr output, I could put up with that as long as it gets out of the starting gate!

Isn't this included in the Master Journal Bundle?

It looks to me like the 443 issue CP resource is all issues from 1825-1929, while the resources contained in the Master Bundle, according to that web page, contains 27 vols. (1903–1929).

I looked closer at the set under CP. If you scroll down through you will see that they had different titles along the way. Biblical Repertory, then Biblical Repertory and Theological Review and so on. I suspect they are all included in the Bundle but did not try to compare all of them.

I think you are right.

Came here to see if anyone else thinks this is a good deal. It's about to end at 50.00? Anyone excited about this?

Yes, I wasn't expecting it this soon. Maybe the price could be driven lower?

They appear to all be included, but it would be nice to have a confirmation from FL.

UPDATE—Just added the ones in these screenshots. Either I have missed some, or they are not all included.
