Scott Sibert:

Not sure when they did it but I checked today and they now have $25 and $50 bid options!

You are right, and welcome to the forums!

I've been waiting for Logos to lower the minimum bid below $75.  That looks much like minimum price setting and has created a peak at $75.  Can we get it down, as we did Revelation set?  

I'm not happy about the high minimum bids they have for some sets.  seems to go against the principle of letting us decide the price.  I didn't bid at all till they lowered the minimum price.

In at $50... And it's OK if I miss because it goes for more. 

I would be willing to make the sacrifice & lower my bid, however, should conditions warrant. Wink

I wanted to bump this good CP opportunity since it's languishing at around sixty-something per cent at $75.00 bids.

http://www.logos.com/product/18436/the-complete-spurgeon-sermon-collection

$75 is a great price for this mammoth collection.

$75/$50?? It belongs in the library of every pastor. His sermons sold by the thousands every week. Lay people avidly read them. My Greek professor, Dr. Curtis Vaughan, said that for years he read one sermon a day. I'm sorry I can't say that. I'm sure I'd be better off if I did. You could hardly spend $75 in a better way.

If you had $75 to just "spend." $50 is better.... Stick out tongue

I totally agree. Quandary is, I'm supposed to get this for free, being an owner of the prior version developed jointly with Ages Software. At the original CP price, which was something like $450, being grandfathered in was the route for me, no questions asked. But, I would certainly be willing to contribute the current concensus price of $50-75 toward the redevelopment effort.

Question is, if I bid on the CP item will Logos accept that and charge me even though I am grandfathered in. I don't want to place a bid that counts toward  the item getting the qualified amount of participation if, when it is ready and gets distributed, Logos automatically recognizes me as a grandfathered owner and does not charge me.

Hi Randal. The short answer is that a CP bid can be canceled and you won't be charged for it.

The longer answer, though, is that I wouldn't make a CP bid knowing I was going to cancel. I also have the prior version of Spurgeon's commentaries and really want to see this upgrade come to fruition. I'm not, however, going to make a CP bid to help push it over the top. It just wouldn't seem right to me. Besides, I'm sure the updated Spurgeon will get done because many new Logos customers do not have the older version and will see this for the great deal that it is.

If I bid, it would not be with the intention to cancel it knowing I would still get it because I am a prior owner. I would id with the intent that I get charged for teh upgraded material just like one would get charged if one did not own the prior version. What I am fearful of is that I place a bid with that intent, but Logos at distribution time recognizes me as a prior owner and does not charge me.

My apologies, Randal, I misunderstood. I have no idea how that would work, but you may be right.

Frankly, though, I don't think that one bid is going to make any difference, probably not many of us would be willing to pay another $75 on top of the initial cost for our Logos/Ages Spurgeon. Were I in your place (and I guess I am!), I would just keep promoting it to others and let the thing play out.

Randal - 

If I were you, I would look for someone whom you feel would use this collection, and ask them if they would like it. Explain to them the process, help them to place a bid on their account, and give them the money for the bid. Smile

To keep this thread at the top of the list, does anyone with the current Ages collection in Logos or access to his sermons have a certain sermon of Spurgeon's that stands out or has impacted them recently?

(if you're having trouble finding them, try using Mark Barnes' Index to Spurgeon's Sermons PB)

 

As for myself #207 Sovereign Grace and Man's Responsibility (Rom. 10:20-21) is an incredibly thought provoking sermon.

Another bump for The Complete Spurgeon Sermon Collection.

If you're someone who enjoys older sermons, I think this could be a good investment - even at the rather princely sum of $75.00 (which could hopefully come down a little with a stronger following.) 

Whilst I do use parts of this resource via public domain sites for free, I would really appreciate having this indexed in my Logos library for convenience.  At around $0.02 per sermon, I would willingly pay for the privilege too!

For the guys worried about placing a bid to put it over the top and then canceling (I'm assuming this is an issue for you all because it is against your conscience and deceitful), consider this from the CP page:

"Do you already own the Ages edition of The Complete Spurgeon Sermon Collection (63 vols.) that was built for Libronix? Then you will receive this updated collection for free, and the files will automatically download when it is complete. The previous edition was created many years ago, using the best digital files available at the time. We’re rebuilding The Complete Spurgeon Sermon Collection from the ground up—this collection contains new, updated files. Enhance your library with over 3,500 sermons from the "Prince of Preachers" by placing your bid today!"

Seems strange to me that right after saying that you all will get the upgrade for free, they encourage bidding on the resource.  Is this just a general encouragement actually directed only to those who will not receive the upgrade for free?  If so, this statement is almost out of context.  Or is this statement directed toward those who would receive the upgrade for free as well?  I think that's a viable question.  I won't assume Logos' position.  But they may want you to bid, simply to determine interest, with the intention of giving it to you for free anyway.  That's just a thought to consider.  Could be wrong though.

I have to agree, Robert, that the encouragement to bid in the quote is strange. It could be little more than a formatting error, that the block quote was not intended to include the last sentence within it, or it could be an encouragement to bid to see the interest.
