84 Libraries on Sale—Here’s How to Choose the Right One(s)

Your perfect library is in there. Here’s how to find it.

The library expansion sale is your opportunity to get highly focused, topical libraries at a great price.

With dozens of library topics and sizes, it could feel like a lot to take in, but these simple tips will lead you to the right choice.

1. Know your game plan.

Before stepping onto the sale page, ask yourself, “What does my library need right now?” or “What topics have I been meaning to study more?”

There are a lot of options—and that’s on purpose. We wanted people to be able to get bundles focused on their needs.

So before you step in, take a minute to think through your life and ministry and what you need most right now. Then step in and look at the main categories, and you’re off to a smart start.

The perfect library is the one you need right now.

2. Look at the individual product list.

This may seem obvious, but simply skimming the individual product lists in a bundle—and seeing their price if sold separately—really puts your savings in perspective.

For example, the philosophy books in the XL Apologetics Bundle cost $243.09 when bought separately. But you can get those books and 94 more—including Select Works from William Lane Craig—for $230.99.

So 1/10 of the bundle costs more than the bundle itself when bought separately,

(For truly astronomical numbers, note that all resources purchased individually would be  $1,300. I’m no mathematician, but that’s more than 82% off between bundled and sale pricing.)

3. Remember what resources in Logos mean.

When I browse used book sales, I often ask myself, “Will I really read this, or will it just sit on my shelf?” The answer is typically, “It won’t even sit on your shelf—it will hide in a box somewhere.”

In Logos, it’s a different question altogether. The question is, “Will this product give Logos more to work as I study?”

The answer is yes.

I may not read Hymns, Prayers and Songs: An Anthology of Ancient Egyptian Lyric Poetry cover to cover, but if I’m preaching through the Old Testament and want my hearers to appreciate ancient Egyptian cultic practices and values, a poem or hymn could bring that to life in a way a commentary quotation never could.

And I won’t have to read the book to find the quote. Logos pulls up that passage for me in literally seconds.

So when you read the titles, don’t ask, “Will I read this book?”

Ask, “Will the insights Logos finds when it reads this book in ten seconds help me understand the Bible (or theology or Church history or how the Egyptians prayed to the sun god Ra)?”

(By the way, that title is in the Ancient Text and Translations, XL bundle)

Extra tip: don’t miss the last bundle.

Way down at the very bottom of the page is the granddaddy of them all: The Master Library Expansion, XL.

A few stats to consider:

  • Contains 1,375 resources
  • Purchased individually, the resources would cost $25,321.33
  • Currently only $3,561.33

Again, you know what you need for your life, ministry, and interests.

But if you’ve been thinking for a while about majorly upgrading your library, now would be a good time.

Comments

  1. I bought a bunch of these, but I gave them another look. You don’t show me what I already own, so I have to check on each one. So I didn’t. I”m sure this is a glitch, but I think it’s an important one you might want to fix right away.
