Will that stinks. I really appreciate them giving us these great resources but it stinks when they make you buy more to get the full benefit

That is the point! They do whatever they can to get you to buy more books.

Sean Boisen:
Update to the update: there's a synchronization issue with the software, so it hasn't actually shipped yet. But i expect you'll see it later today or tomorrow.

Resource registers an update today. Is that correct? Should I be viewing the updated material?

Edit: Answering my own questions. Yes the resource has indeed been updated. See Editors Preface. the See Also section. And from there can assume more articles are included, etc.

Meanwhile, Jesus kept on growing wiser and more mature, and in favor with God and his fellow man.

Yes, the resource has been updated.

  • This version includes about 20 more articles, along with the Editor's Preface and biographies for Contributors.
  • There are additional media for some of the articles in the initial version.
  • We've added quite a few hyperlinks throughout the content, along with many type-specific icons to make them more apparent.

In additional to being an exciting new contribution to understanding the Gospels from a geographic perspective, the integration of this resource with the rest of the Logos ecosystem through media and hyperlinks  is a bit of an experiment for us (one reason it took longer to ship than anticipated). We're considering additional volumes in this series, along with similar approaches for other projects, so we'd greatly value your feedback in the Faithlife group for discussion of the Geographic Commentary or here on the forums.

We hope you're enjoying the full resource, and look forward to getting your feedback.

We're especially interested to find out what your top three favorite essays are. What key insights you learned and new appreciations you have for these age old stories.

If you haven't already, be sure to join the Faithlife group for all things Geographic Commentary and share your #FavoriteThree there.

I enjoy the synthetic view in "Jesus Feeds Five Thousand".

I've been in Africa and often when listening to a narrative the story goes kind of jumping from the western point of view, because the storyteller describes the event from different viewpoints so that the audience can construct the whole situation in their minds.

The modern 3D photography is a bit similar: taking pictures of the object at different angles produces bitmaps and the computer can combine them to a 3D representation.

I assume that early Christians wanted to give different eyewitness viewpoints by providing the four Gospels, and we can do the synthetic approach like detectives, and thus I feel the geographic commentary is an exciting approach!

I don't expect it will go into Logos Cloud collections, but we will begin offering it for sale soon as a standalone product.

On sale for April. A really good resource that ties into the various tools and resources available in Logos. Put it together with the $20 off discount and you have a great deal. I also subscribed to the pre-publication for the next update for Acts.

And also now in print: not for all you enlightened Logos users, but for your still-stuck-with-dead-trees-content friends.
