Thousands of Commentaries, 1 Affordable Price

Personal research library

Imagine entering your own personal biblical research library for the very first time.

As soon as you walk in you’re surrounded by thousands upon thousands of books perched on dusty shelves that reach to ceilings high above you. You head to the commentaries section, and are stunned. Dozens of rows of shelves supporting hundreds of volumes each stretch as far as you can see. They contain tomes in French, German, Latin, and Greek. These resources cover everything from biblical interpretation to historical context, devotional application, and textual criticism. They span every book of the Bible and even comment on other commentaries.

When we launched our first iteration of the Complete Classic Commentary Bundle, we delivered a micro-library of biblical resources covering each verse of every book in the Bible, and even had coverage of the deuterocanon. If your Logos base package is that enviable theological research library, then the Complete Classic Commentary Bundle was a boon to the commentaries section—a stunning influx of resources to populate your Passage Guide and other features and deliver even more insight to your Bible study.

Well, it’s time to make room for some new shelves. And lots of them.

Explore the full range of theological thought

Introducing the Complete Classic Commentary Bundle 2.0. This bundle includes thousands of books that cover not just the books and verses of the Bible, but books that tell the story of biblical interpretation over the past three centuries. These books constitute the foundation of modern theological exegesis.

Containing works from across the theological spectrum, this bundle is one of the most affordable ways to incorporate keen exegetical insight from a broad range of voices into your Bible study. Get it now!

With so many resources in this bundle, you need some way to sort through them. Creating collections or tagging your resources in your library is a great way to organize your books, and makes searching them a whole lot faster than using the Dewey-decimal system or a card catalogue. With the Complete Classic Commentary Bundle 2.0, you’ll want to catalogue your resources—here are a few ideas to help you get started.

Oxford Movement/Tractarian commentaries

The Complete Classic Commentary Bundle 2.0 comes with many from the original Anglo-Catholic movement, starting with John Henry Newman and E.B. Pusey. There are many Anglo-Catholics in this collection, perhaps the most noteworthy being:

Tübingen/Romantic/Liberal theology commentaries

A lot of our classic commentaries are translated from their original German, and many of the commentators come from German schools of thought like the Tübingen school. F.C. Baur espoused this thread of biblical criticism, and you’ll find his works in this collection, along with volumes by:

Dispensational commentaries

You’ll get many, many commentaries from the turn of the twentieth century that continue the analysis of dispensational theological interpretation. Obviously, you’ll want to begin with the man John Nelson Darby himself, as well as C.I. Scofield and R.A. Torrey. Some others you’ll want to include:

Arminian-Wesleyan commentaries

You probably already know about John Wesley and Adam Clarke, but did you know we have another dozen commentaries from an Arminian perspective? When you organize your collections in Logos, be sure file resources by these authors under “Arminian-Wesleyan.”

Calvinistic commentaries

This collection might take the most time for you to create! We’ve got all of John Calvin’s expositions in here, as well as commentaries by John Owen and William G.T. Shedd. You’ll probably include a lot of the dispensationalist commentators listed above, too. Make sure to keep an eye out for:

  1. WoW!!! I see nothing posted? Is this a good thing or a sign? Perhaps its just shock at being able to amass such a large commentary library? Hello, anyone saying anything???

      God bless:

      Good offer, too bad that I have many pre pubs in line, so I cannot make good on the offer right now.

      I was impressed by the way they classified the commentaries. Based on that point of view, I asked in the forums is someone had done collections of such type.

      A Bondservant said:

      I’ve gone through and tagged all my resources based on the collection rules made by andrew baguley in the theology and denomination tags thread.

      My rule would be something like Mytag:Commentary AND Mytag Calvinist…. or something like that.

      This is the fl gROUP for the denomination and theology tags.

      Based on his answer I got to do something I had not thought of before:

      God bless:

      Thank you Bondservant, you are gifted.

      I copied the rule for the theology collection:

      e.g. Charismatic, then I pasted that rule in a new collection, then put it all in parentheses, and added to the end: AND type:commentary.

      And voila, only commentaries in the charismatic tradition.

      I will do the same with the others.

      I hope this shows you how articles such as this become helpful even if one cannot take advantage of the offer.

      Blessings.

  2. That's odd. I did post a comment. Must be on the product page. I agree that this is a great collection. But although comprehensive, being classic it suffers its age, and at this cost, I'd be searching for a great modern collection (Like ICC or Anchor Bible) first. I know it's cheap per volume, but its total cost is prohibitive. I'm happy to say, however, I possess a good subset of these, thanks to the community pricing program!

  3. Quantity or quality? Which works for you? Time is a premium and Sunday comes all too quickly. A couple good exegetical and expositional commentaries and the Holy Spirit is enough for most of us… as Ecclesiastes 12: 7 reminds us: "12 My son, beware of anything beyond these. Of making of many books there is no end, and vmuch study is a weariness of the flesh."

    • Hamilton Ramos says:

      God bless:

      Good point, but also remember Proverbs 11:14, 14 Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety.

      Someone at Faithlife said that he considered the views of the commentaries as guidance offered by the authors that act as counselors.

      In the end you must pick the gold, but with search features of L6, you can drill down quickly to the pearls, and to the different applications through time that have been found by men of God past.

      If I had the chance I would get the bundle.

      Just a thought.
