Looks like this is going to be another fast seller. It was just announced a couple of days ago and is already almost up to 60% at $10 (SRP of $29.95, expected pre-pub price will be $19.95). As usually happens, once it reaches 100% of needed purchasers to go into pre-pub, it will probably go down even lower in Community Pricing as people realize this is the last chance ever to get such a great deal on it. There's no downside to bidding for it early on in the process. You just help it reach 100% sooner that way. You can always back out once it gets into pre-pub if you change your mind.

Hermann Gunkel was a famous and influential German Protestant Old Testament scholar in the early 20th century. He served as professor of Old Tesament at Berlin. He is noted for his contribution to form criticism and the study of oral tradition in biblical texts. He was an outstanding representative of the "History of Religion School."

Yup, looks like it. The graphic of the book cover is just a mock-up since no physical book exists for this Logos edition -- it's a digital book. The widths are not done proportionally when they make those fake book covers. They all look about the same.

You can see a preview on Amazon.com of a recently released new translation of it. It's a different translation than the Logos version, but it'll give you an idea of the content. I wish Logos had rights to the new translation of it, but I'm sure the original translation from the 1904 publication will be adequate. The CP graph is already starting to show another bulge at around the $7 mark, so I'm guessing that will be the most any of us would have to pay for it, and it might even go down to $6 by the time this is done.  Amazon is selling the new edition for $13.

Yup, I was right. This one has already gone over the top, and it's currently at $10. Closes at noon on Friday July 9 (Pacific Time). It will probably come down at least a couple more bucks before then. Get your order in before Friday, when it shoots up to $19.95.

Interesting.  The translator of the new translation has some comments about the previous translation that should be kept in mind:

The entire forward can be read on Amazon's preview and is a worthwhile read, as it gives good background to the book.

If you think this is a good buy at $7 for 72 pages, you should be ecstatic over Hastings' Greater Men and Women of the Bible.

3100 pages for $15.

I'm sorry to have to disappoint you, but Barnes is so dated both linguistically and theologically that I wouldn't be interested even for $30.00.  I did buy Calvin, but that is a classic -- Barnes is not.

Thank you for your response and your opinion,  i have just made a request based on my opinion as everyone has to study the word and other materials and test it as the bereans did, i also thank you for your recommendation of Calvin to which i will look to make a judgement as to whether i would like to include that in my library as well.

I'm in... but the count of selections in my Pre-Pubs is growing where I'll have to start an account with my bank so I'll be covered when they all get shipped. Big Smile

$5 seems like a good price - but since I cannot see myself reading this, I will pass.

I really enjoy the CP and Pre-Pub programs and have purchased many resources, but I still will only purchase books that I am likely to use and read.  Thank you LOGOS for all the material you make available - I really wish I did not need to be as selective, but it is the way it is.

Blessings,
Floyd
