Did any of you guys have the book "orthodoxy" in your library after purchasing the "500 package" ?

because mine still available for purchase.. and I couldn't find "orthodoxy" in my library either...

There's no way I'm gonna click individually through such a large unsorted list - its a bit like a bargain bucket in a DVD shop where everything is just mushed in together.

I understand your frustration and I wish it was easier but it is well worth the effort to see what treasures are held within. Or you can just go for it knowing that it is an amazing deal. Logos' own words say "This is the largest discount we’ve ever offered on any product in our company’s history!" You can let it pass but you might never have this opportunity again.

You are right.  "Orthodoxy" was not downloaded.  Logos will probably fix this in the next few days.

Richard, I emailed sales and a few hours later they emailed me back a list of all the volumes I owned / didn't own in this collection. It helped me make up my mind to buy it as I owned so little of this collection, and got a $0.75 / book dynamic price. When I converted this back to GBP, the price seemed even better at under £0.50 / book!

The sale is probably not for everyone - especially if you are not interested in Logos 'Classic' range of titles, but if you are it really doesn't take that much effort or take that long. And what is on offer is so much better than the bargin bucket IMHO.

One of the titles I own (Meyer's commentary) is worth $249

What is your opinion of the Meyers Commentary?  I know it went for 30 dollars off of community pricing.  

When looking at the product page, some are giving it a bad review.  

https://www.logos.com/product/9847/critical-and-exegetical-commentary-on-the-new-testament

Do you think it is useful?  Thanks in advance! Tom 

Someone want to give me some advice on this commentary!  Is it worth it, did logos do a good job of putting in hyperlinks to greek words, etc. ?

Smeaton's 'Doctrine of the Holy Spirit' is included twice on the product listing - once in the Smeaton Theology Collection and once as a standalone.

Does that mean it's actually "The 499 book mega pack"?!

I clicked through some of the titles, especially the commentaries in the mega deal.  I don't see any modern (this century or latter part of last century) commentaries in it.

Have I missed anything?

Thanks!

No I don't believe you have missed anything.

Logos say that they have "pulled together 500 classic titles" so I wouldn't expect to see anything which is modern

Peter,

These titles are probably 99% public domain. Logos can price them low because they don't pay a publisher. Logos tried to put together a mixture of books that would appeal to most customers. In my opinion, they did well.

You are totally right!

A Commentary on the Confession of Faith also not included neither in the download nor in my library.

thanks for pointing this, I had to call CS to get it unlock.

apparently this is a known issue, many of those who purchased the 500 bundle didn't get all their books. (said CS)

Any one want to give their "two cents" about this resource?

Now Orthodoxy and the two Saint Bernard books(Saint Bernard on the Love of God and Saint Bernard on Consideration) that I was looking forward to aren't even on the sale page.  I hope they didn't make a mistake in putting them on there in the first place.

apparently there's a mess in the marketing & sales department ..

I just spoke with CS and apparently they MIGHT PULL OFF some books that we've purchased.

here are 4 more books that didn't get downloaded by me..

The Philocalia of Origen

The Dark Night of the Soul

Saint Bernard on the Love of God

The Ecclesiastical History of the English Nation

...

I dislike where this is going...

I don't think I like where this is going either.  I was looking forward to these books.  If this happens then it would be somewhat infuriating.

That's correct. Orthodoxy and a few other titles were inadvertently left out of the first Mega Pack purchases, but we are working to fix that mistake. There may be a slight delay, but you will receive that book.
