How is it that there's no volume on 1 Corinthians in this series? Is there one in the pipeline?

David - Commentary sets take a long time to complete, and some never are. Others undergo revisions regularly. It doesn't appear that one has been made for 1 Corinthians. A good place to check is bestcommentaties.com. I have a link below for you which will show you the upcoming volumes.

Now that the second volume of Job is in pre-pub, I think Judges is still in Logos' pipeline. However, I think Acts and 1 Cor are in Nelson's pipeline, as they are not listed in the set as sold by another online bookseller.

I've been checking in Amazon regarding this and encountered something I was unaware of.  William H Brownlee with whom I had some courses at Claremont Grad wrote a volume on Ezek 1-19 which has since been superceded.  It would be interesting for me if this were available.  Of course, this may only be of interest to me since I knew him, but perhaps others would be interested as well.

http://www.nelsonministryservices.com/nms/dept.asp?dept_id=7007 Might be a better place to check, they claim the last 2 volumes are going to be released by July 2013, so by Christmas 2013 we should have a complete WBC, although I am sure revised volumes will be coming out for years.

I have a spreadsheet of all my commentaries in Logos by book and noticed by far the most absent book in nearly complete commentary sets is the book of 1 Corinthians.  I thought that was interesting...

George,

Ezekiel is one of my favorite OT books.  I'm not at home right now but I believe Leslie Allen is the one who wrote the commentary for that series on Ezek. 20-48 and then wrote the superceding volume on chs. 1-19.  I can't remember if I got both or just Allen's for chs. 1-19.  I got them in dead tree format so I'll follow up and let you know.

Cool idea for the SS by BookOfTheBible... care to share?  Also, I agree that the Biblical book that is dedicated to New Testament "church life" is least commented upon... when church (at least in Western Christianity) are so desperately in need of instruction/reproof/correction today.

Fee set the bar too high . . . :)

There was a strongly-promoted, eagerly-anticipated volume on 1 Corinthians by Judith Gundry-Volf. It was published, but went out of print (in hardback) without ever being converted to Logos. I tried to find out what had happened - from Thomas Nelson, but they were politely unhelpful No explanation as to why the book disappeared so quickly after being waited for for so long and no explanation as to why there was no Logos version and never seems to have been one nor any intention to produce one. It is listed on various sites as "currently unavailable", so copies may still exist. But a print copy isn't much use with the Logos system.

What evidence do you have that this (1 Corinthians by Judith Gundry-Volf) was actually issued (published) - there are a number of sales sites that confusingly post entries for titles before they are issued as if they are unavailable (i.e. out of print) even though the title has never appeared.

Exactly Kevin, the same thing appears to be the case with Acts, even though the author has yet to complete it.  Amazon can claim that they were published but I think that goes more to hoped for dates that were tentatively given and then when the dates were withdrawn I think Amazon and other companies simply declared them out of print.

It is not listed on Gundry's curriculum vitae.  That volume is also listed under Andrew Clarke at several cites, but his page also does not attribute it to him.

There is an ISBN listed for it on google books, but note that her name is misspelled, and the synopsis talks about the set generically.  Amazon carries the same ISBN with no evidence that it was actually available.

Andrew D. Clarke of Aberdeen University - certainly was cited on his pages as preparing the volume. This might still be the case but I would guess he may have received unwarranted pressure from some "punters" to complete that is not helpful.

That would be my guess - aside from a definitive response from the publisher who is now Zondervan (rather than the previous Thomas Nelson).

Thanks for the explanation of the Bible. Maybe I read and understand. Because before I never paid attention to it.

Hi, Sorry for this late reply. I admit I tended to believe the sites that informed me the book was now out of print, I may have been naïve.

I gave up looking for the book after posting,  but today - 27th November, 2020 - I happened to encounter Judith Gundry-Volf's name whilst searching for another author. I did another google search and have found a site that "says" the commentary is on a shelf in a university library in Kenya. However, the site isn't the university's own, so I am not yet certain.

Regards Karoly
