Of all the titles you can purchase at 50% off, which one lights your fire the most?  Of course this is highly subjective, but that's the point.  Which title made you do the happy dance?  (Yes, this is a not-so-clever way to help me make some decisions!)

See this thread of some ideas of how people responded:

I've listed some of the dozen or so I'm in the process of choosing.

Allen--thanks for your suggestion.  I have reread that thread and saw only a couple of people who actually list the titles they are going to purchase.  The rest of that thread seems to be debating Britain's fair trade practices!

A lot of what I picked up was stuff that was recently freed from collections, and I was waiting on cheaper prices. Here's what I got:

I'm not buying them all but here are the resources I don't own that appear on bestcommentaries.com. some of them are rated commentaries, mainly the Black Commentaries., there are a couple in the Christmas list that I already own, also. I'm working on building up commentaries based on that website. Sorry I'm sending this as a picture, its the best I can do with the time I have.

EDIT: Due to incomplete tagging on the website it seems my list is incomplete.

I was able to add 5 of Wiersbe's "Be" series, 5 of the IVP NTCS, 2 from the B&H Baptist History Collection, The Dictionary of Deities and Demons in the Bible, one of the last Spurgeon resources I didn't have in Logos (only lack the 2 from the Roger Williams Heritage Collection), and James Petigru Boyce's Abstracts of Systematic Theology.  

  • Be Counted
  • Be Concerned
  • Be Basic
  • Be Authentic
  • Be Amazed
  • The IVP New Testament Commentary Series: 1-3 John
  • The IVP New Testament Commentary Series: 2 Corinthians
  • The IVP New Testament Commentary Series: Colossians & Philemon
  • The IVP New Testament Commentary Series: Hebrews
  • The IVP New Testament Commentary Series: James
  • Dictionary of Deities and Demons in the Bible
  • Theologians of the Baptist Tradition
  • The Sacred Trust: Sketches of the Southern Baptist Convention Presidents
  • Abstract of Systematic Theology
  • Exploring the Mind and Heart of the Prince of Preachers: Five-Thousand Illustrations Selected from the Works of Charles Haddon Spurgeon

 

I would have to recommend to all the Dictionary of Deities and Demons in the Bible because its the lowest I've ever seen it in price.

Todd Phillips:

Hebrews Pre-Pub price $29.95; Acts Pre-Pub price $39.95

I've been looking at the Works of John Owen myself but the specific volumes I really want are not on sale. Haven't had time to look closely at this huge sale but am looking forward to some quality browsing time. I've been using the Acts commentary and am very thankful I purchased it.

I am filling out some incomplete commentary sets:

Preaching the Word

NAC Zechariah

Could someone explain the benefits of the Dictionary of Demons and Deities? I have seen several of you suggest it.

 

Thanks

I bought for following:

Most of these I already own in paper. Several of the other excellent volumes suggested by others, I already have. If I didn't already have them, I'd definitely have snapped up the three Pillar volumes. God's Indwelling Presence is also excellent.

The "Reading the NT" commentary set I nearly didn't buy. It's not amongst the top line sets, but I needed a few volumes and I have most of the other sets already, and the print versions are expensive, so in the end the price tempted me.

John, for what I have used it for, check out the videos at the bottom of this page on the Ugaritic Resources. You will see an example of how the Dictionary of Demons and Deities proved useful in researching background info on the OT....

I picked up several of the Black's NT Commentaries, along with a few volumes from the IVP NT Commentary series, College Press Commentary series, and two of Lenski's commentaries.  This is one of the best sales I can remember Logos having in a long time.  Thanks, Logos!.

I briefly considered getting the Dictionary of Deities and Demons at the sale price, but when I discovered there was no entry for me decided to pass. Wink
