I think that it was a very good idea on the part of Logos to create a Classic Sermon Library Builder, and I think that it's fantastic that two of the sermon contributors are Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman and Br. Thomas a Kempis. Aside from noting this new Library Builder on the forums, I'd just like to note the discrepancy between this collection being listed on the Logos website as Evangelical and the theological positions held by these two authors in particular. Both of them died Catholics, although some of the included sermons from Blessed Newman were given while he was still an Anglican.

This appears not to have dynamic pricing - given the resources, the usual "fixed payment to publisher" reason doesn't seem applicable.

My bad. It is working.

MJ, mine showed a difference of about $45 in price when I signed out and signed back in. I don't have much in the way of sermons such as these, but this does look like a useful compilation of some great preachers throughout the generations.

Nine good resources, including the five Moody, for less than thirteen and a half. Not half bad. Thanks OP

Brilliant idea by Logos given the new sermon feature in the guides. Would love to see a Modern Sermons edition also.

How can I find how many more resources I am getting?  I see the price (more than 17.38) but cannot see what is added,

Thanks,

Dave

I waited until the new ones downloaded and then counted how many new resources I got. Note that I made sure my resource downloads were all up-to-date and the recent ones tagged before doing this so I wouldn't get confused about which new downloads were from this purchase and which were already waiting for me to download from a pre-pub shipping recently or whatever.

Funny - I thought this was modern. Actually I've become impatient that the Early Church Fathers' sermons haven't been tagged despite them being in many base packages over the years. And when I saw this collection, I immediately thought we needed a similar Medieval collection.

I have a reasonable dynamic price for the remaining sermons and almost purchased it thinking it would enhance the Sermon section of the sermon starter.

But in checking with some of the resources I already have (i.e. Hugh Latimer & John Bunyan) i realised that the results for these sermons do not come under Sermon tab

but rather under Collections tab

so although this resource is advertised as follows:

.... it still my mean trying to find it 300 hits down the collections list!!!

I think many of us want to see this bundle linked to the "Sermon/Sermon Starter" rather than "Collections/Sermon Starter". So does anyone know if Logos has plans to retag these resources for this purpose.

Just remembered an earlier discussion on this and found an answer to my own question:

http://community.logos.com/forums/p/81604/590737.aspx#590737 (see below).

But my main point is if you buy this don't assume it will appear in the Sermon tab.

Stephen,

that's very outdated information, see http://community.logos.com/forums/t/85216.aspx - I believe Logos will deliver updated sermon metadata for all of those in this resource bundle (if they haven't already).

While I didn't check them all, those that were new to me appear to be tagged for the sermon section. Logos has made it clear they intend to continue tagging resources that preceded the section. Looking at your results have you created a sermons collection ... it looks like you have mixed very different resource types together.

You set the collections up yourself. It sounds to me like you may want to split your collection into more manageable units - by era preached, by denomination, liturgical date or not ...
