Edited: I guess that had more of the March madness books already in my Library.

Thanks Logos for the discounts that you do give us.

There are 26 volumes from Carson included (by default the website excludes those you already own)

i haven't checked the others but the same principle would apply

Thanks Graham

I didn't know that it worked that way. So I guess Logos did give more than I showed above..

I think one of the best offers is the NICNT/NICOT discounted volumes.

Thanks again for opening my eyes.

I already owned all of Carson and Packer, so I didn't get anything for 75% or 60% off. Oh well. I never make out very well in these MM sales because most of the authors they put in them are either ones I don't want to buy anything more from no matter how cheap or ones I already own all of.

EDIT: I did pick up a few books, though, and I'm happy with these purchases:

Small Faith, Great God (N.T. Wright, 45% off) -- was pleasantly surprised to find there was an N.T. Wright book that I hadn't picked up yet

The Epistle to the Ephesians: A Verse-by-Verse Exposition (F.F. Bruce, 40% off) -- again, didn't realize I didn't already own all of Bruce's works that are in Logos

The Evangelical Left: Encountering Postconservative Evangelical Theology (Millard Erickson, 40% off) -- I'm not usually eager to read people who are against the post conservative evangelical theology, since I've got one foot in that camp, but for this price I don't mind being challenged.

Christian Apologetics Past and Present: A Primary Source Reader: Volume 2, From 1500 (35% off, I forget why; probably because Luther is one of the authors in it)

Fabricating Jesus: How Modern Scholars Distort the Gospels (Craig Evans, 35% off)

Visual Faith: Art, Theology, and Worship in Dialogue (30% off; not sure if this was a MM book, though; Dyrness isn't listed as one of the authors in the brackets; might have just been on sale by coincidence for a MM amount)

Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth (C.I. Scofield, 30% off) -- I've long ago let go of dispensationalism, so I am not likely to read this; but it is a classic and the price was good

A lot of great deals I'm thankful to Logos for the offers.

Could somebody post the URL for the Champion books ... I presumably have only one ... it redirects me directly there https://www.logos.com/product/28071/holy-holy-holy-proclaiming-the-perfections-of-god.

I want to look because I am also shopping for my wife. I know I could log off as me and then back as her ... but I do not want to risk losing my shopping cart items ... 

Thanks.

If you're shopping for her, you're going to have to log off and log back on as her eventually anyway to get them for her account.

But if you're just looking at what deals she'd get in order to budget what to spend for your own account, you can open a different browser and log in as her. The different browsers keep their cookies entirely separately. So if you're logged in as you on Firefox, for example, open Chrome and log in as your wife.

I was quite hoping for a discount on this one.  I think Beale and Carson both featured, so does this mean that this book was entirely excluded from MM?

Probably.

  • Almost all titles will have only one author. However, there may be a few titles with contributing authors not listed in the tournament.

It's a question for Faithlife as to the determination, however ...  Correct.  It means that this resource was not in the subset of resources identified for the author in the MM promotion.

That is a real problem for me!  I was looking over the Carson offers and thinking it was really thin.

I'm shopping on behalf of the members of the Phoenix Logos Users Group.  I need to be able to see all that is available so that I can make suggestions.  Our pastor just purchased a Gold package and I'm pretty sure that there is at least one Carson title which he could use, but I am unable to see if it is offered.

Following the advice in this thread I will simply open another browser without logging in.

David,

the link includes the "unlocked=no" parameter for convenience to only show you what you don't aleady own: https://www.logos.com/products/search?Product+Type=Logos+March+Madness&Product+Type_Logos+March+Madness=Champion+Discounts&unlocked=no

if you take that paramter out, you'll see all that is on sale: https://www.logos.com/products/search?Product+Type=Logos+March+Madness&Product+Type_Logos+March+Madness=Champion+Discounts which should be 26 works

I am just shocked that The Gospel of John: F.F. Bruce is still not available in Logos having read it cover to cover many years ago I can say it is a wonderful work, even if not as in depth as some of his other works. For many years it sat lovingly tucked into my Tyndale commentaries as a suitable replacement for Tasker's less than stellar volume that did not get replaced 2003, almost a full decade after the majority of the other volumes were updated/replaced. And while the tyndale series no longer has a place on my bookshelves (although digitally it does) my F. F. Bruce Gospel of John is still there and gets referred to on occasion.

Like Rosie, I am fortunate enough to own many of the MM offerings this year. However, I was able to pick up quite a few books that I have been wanting for a while and pick up a couple which piqued my curiosity, but I would have been unlikely to purchase at full price.

My chief purchases this year include,

Acts: An Exegetical Commentary (C. Keener, 35% off)

From Prophecy to Testament: The Function of the Old Testament in the New (C. Evans, 35% off)

A Case for Historic Premillennialism (C. Blomberg, 35% off)

Interpreting the Synoptic Gospels (Scot McKnight, 40% off)

Introducing Covenant Theology (Michael Horton, 35% off)

The Tolerance of Intolerance and Christ and Culture Revisited (D.A. Carson, 75% off)

I also picked up a couple of books by James White and Norman Geisler out of curiosity (I don't think I have previously read any of their offerings). 

Blessings

We are planning our annual March Madness party for our users group.  Any lists of recommendations like this would be welcome!

I already have this commentary and I would highly recommend it.  Beale and Carson served as the editors and a number of other scholars provided content on each NT book.  For instance, Craig Blomberg provided the chapter on Matthew.

Oddly, at BestCommentaries.com it is listed as the best resource on NT Hermeneutics.  However, I searched the current sale under both Beale and Carson and I did not find it. Sad
