The Myrtlefield Expositions set by David Gooding appears to be quite worthwhile. It is currently on pre-pub at about $55 but seems to be stuck at about 50%.

Would you take another look to see if it is something you'd profit from? I suggest looking at the preview pages on the Luke volume for a sense of what Dr. Gooding is attempting to provide and to get a sample of his thinking and prose. If you like it, take the pre-pub offer and help it get closer to production.

Thank you.

I have had the privilege of sitting under Dr Gooding's teaching over the years and have found his teaching to be extremely helpful.  I encourage all also to take a look at these resources. Some information on him can be found here

I agree with the two Marks. Gooding's literary analysis coupled with his high view of the Scriptures and love for the Lord shine through these excellent works!

Thanks Mark, that does look like something I would benefit from - so place a pre-pub order Yes

I'm in on this. Looks excellent--just the kind of resources I like.

They are worthwhile, but they are available for free in PDF online. They would be nice to have in Logos, but for myself, not for $55.

Legally?

I have looked and don't see that option.

Never-the-less I do want the Logos edition.

Yes, legally.  I noticed the site was down or at least was yesterday, but just checked and is back up.  Dr Gooding and the Myrtlefield Trust has done this for years. 

Having these resources in Logos would be a great addition because of the tagging etc.

Interesting and generous as they compete with themselves and their print texts.

I first became aware of David Gooding's Luke commentary while reading Phil Ryken's two volume commentary on Luke in the Reformed Expository Commentary series. Ryken cites Gooding's commentary very frequently.

I don't have the pdf copies so my observations are based on the limited previews on the Logos web site, but I think I can understand why that would be the case. Fine recommendation.

Dr Gooding is one of the humblest believers I have ever met.  A true servant whose interest has always been in using his tremendous intellect to spread the gospel and help believers grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ.

The Ralph Davis and Motyer endorsements swung it for me!
