How to Get the Best Deal on Your Dream Library

portfolioLogos’ Christmas sale is here, and for just a little while, you can save 15% on a new base package. This is a great deal no matter what, but there’s a way to make it even better. For the best library and the best value, go with Portfolio.

What you’ll get:

1. The best books and features

Portfolio is simply massive—it’s by far the biggest base package we’ve ever produced. You’ll get 2,585 resources, which would cost you $78,000 in print; that’s 500-plus more resources than Diamond and 1,500-plus more than Gold.

But maybe you knew all that. Maybe you think Portfolio’s just so big that it wouldn’t be useful—after all, when would you find the time to read all those books?

If that’s you, here’s the thing: Portfolio’s books are what power its smart tools and features. In Logos, your books (which are exactly as valuable as their content) connect to other books, and thus to other content. Metcalfe’s Law states that the value of a telecommunications network is proportional to its number of users squared; networks like Logos behave the same way. As you build your library, your Logos resources become exponentially more valuable:

  • Timeline events link to articles for further study. With Portfolio, you understand more context.
  • Original-language words link to original-language tools. With Portfolio, you get more resources to appreciate Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic nuance.
  • Commentaries link to Bibles link to dictionaries link to atlases. With Portfolio, you make more connections.

The takeaway: whether or not you read all the books cover to cover, choosing Portfolio sets you up with the biggest, smartest, best library.

2. The best value, by far

Base packages are a remarkable value: bundled, their contents are way cheaper than they would be purchased one by one. But figures like “print value of $78,000” don’t always make that clear, since print prices can vary pretty dramatically. So let’s keep the math rigorous: let’s look at base package savings vs. individual resources in Logos.

Turns out Portfolio’s such a good deal that, at Logos.com’s current prices, Portfolio’s 31 commentaries alone cost more than the entire 2,585-resource library. Still not convinced? Try picking up these 8 resources, all of which you’ll get in Portfolio:

  1. Sheffield/T&T Clark Bible Guides Collection (44 vols.): $849.95
  2. Second Temple Period Collection (19 vols.): $799.95
  3. The College Press NIV Commentary Series (40 vols.): $739.95
  4. Gnostic & Apocryphal Studies Collection (10 vols.): $649.95
  5. Hermeneutics Collection (12 vols.): $649.95
  6. Exegetical Summaries Series (24 vols.): $499.95
  7. Library of NT Studies: JSNTS on Paul (17 vols.): $449.98
  8. Charles Spurgeon Collection (86 vols.): $399.95

That’s already more expensive than Portfolio, and we’re still counting on our fingers—at this point, the rest of the library might as well be free! It’s simple: if you study lots of Logos books, you should look at Portfolio. And remember: if you already own something, you won’t pay for it twice—Dynamic Pricing gives you a special low price based on your current library.

Trouble is, Portfolio’s price tag can make it tough to work into your budget. That’s why we offer 12- or even 18-month payment plans. Choose Portfolio and an 18-month plan and you’re looking at payments of just $282—and that’s assuming you don’t already own even one resource in the base package! If you do, of course, your custom price will be even lower.

Why you should get Portfolio right now

OK: we’ve established that Portfolio is the biggest, smartest library. We’ve established that it’s far and away the best value. We’ve established that payments plans make budgeting easier. But you’re still on the fence.

Here’s why should get Portfolio right now:

1. For a limited time, you’ll save 15%

Logos’ Christmas sale is your chance to save 15% on a new base package, but it’s ending very soon. With an investment like Portfolio, 15% is a big deal—it corresponds to significant savings, or maybe to those bonus books you’ve had your eye on. Again, if you know you’ll be buying lots of Logos books, you should certainly look at Portfolio—and if you know you might eventually pick up Portfolio, why leave your 15% on the table?

2. You can customize your library with expanded bundles for 50% off

Topic-specific book bundles let you fine-tune your library to fit the disciplines you love—you can add hand-picked volumes on preaching, theology, apologetics, marriage, NT and OT studies, and far more, all for 50% off! This year’s bundles add lots of content to last year’s; they’re a wonderful way to deepen your study. Portfolio is already the biggest, smartest, best base package. Once you’ve customized it to fit exactly what you’re interested in, you’ll have the best Bible study library money can buy—at a special Christmas price.

If you do a lot of Bible study, you owe it to yourself to consider Portfolio this Christmas. For just a little while, you can take advantage of some special savings and finally build the library you’ve always wanted.

But you can’t wait—these discounts expire very soon.

Start using your dream library today: take 15% off Portfolio, make the payments easy with an 18-month plan, and customize your library with 50% off bundles.

Ann Voskamp, Christianity in Nigeria, and No Pollyanna Prophets

bible-study-magazineWe often read Micah 5:2 at Christmastime: “But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, too small to be among the clans of Judah, from you one will go out for me, to be ruler in Israel; and his origins are from of old, from ancient days” (LEB). Reading this verse against the backdrop of Christ’s birth, we envision Micah as a gentle prophet bearing a gentle message. But Matt Morton explains that the context of Micah’s message reveals much more about its implications.

The January–February ’14 issue of Bible Study Magazine features this article and others as part our special section on the eighth- through seventh-century (BC) Minor Prophets. If you subscribe today, you’ll also get the following:

  • Do Prophecies Sometimes Fail? Explore the nature of biblical prophecy and how, sometimes, prophecies were designed to fail. (And why we should be glad they did.)
  • Making Sense of Severity. Divine justice in Nahum can be difficult to understand and explain. Here are some helpful steps for interpreting this prophetic book.
  • This Time, It’s Personal: Sometimes the prophets had to move beyond simply telling the truth. Sometimes, the message and the messenger were one.  
  • The Predestined, Yet Free, Prophet: How Jonah was free and God’s purposes were fulfilled anyway.

How to Get the Best Deal on Books You Love

XL_Master_BundleTopic-specific bundles are one of the very best ways to build your library—these carefully curated collections let you add hand-picked books on the subjects you love.

Because they’re so focused, they’re already really good deals: you can take full advantage of Logos’ bundling discounts (which make the whole more affordable than the sum of its parts), without adding books you don’t want.

But, for just a little while, you can save even more—way more.

Here’s how:

1. Take 50% off bundles

Most of the year, saving 50% on bundles is an exclusive perk reserved for base package owners—you normally can’t get that special discount unless you’re buying a base package. But this Christmas, you can take 50% off bundles without the big-ticket purchase!

If you really care about a topic—Paul’s letters, let’s say—you know you’re going to end up accumulating years’ worth of books on Pauline studies. Why not proactively get them right now, start studying your new library today, and save 50% over the long run?

2. Take advantage of Dynamic Pricing

Of course, if you’re deeply interested in a topic, you probably already own lots of books in the field. Good—that’s where bundles really shine. Dynamic Pricing means you won’t pay twice for books you already own; instead, you’ll get a custom discount based on your current library. It’s especially valuable if you already own bundles from last year. Let’s say you own the Master Bundle: when you upgrade to this year’s expanded version, which gives you tons of new content, you’ll save a remarkable 62%! Bundles were a smart investment then, and upgrading to version 2 is a smart investment now.

3. Get lots of books

You already know that bundling books is a much better deal than buying them one by one. Bundling bundles is a much better deal, too. The Master Bundle, ver. 2 rounds out your library with a vast selection of premium content: 1,588 volumes in the XL version. If you chose that XL library, you’d get 69% off what you’d pay for the individual resources at their regular prices. And that’s before both Dynamic Pricing and your extra 50% off!

If you pass on the Master Bundle, you’ll still benefit from bundling discounts. Most bundles come in sizes small through extra-large, so you’re in charge of both the content and the price point. Pick the largest size you can and you’ll get the best bundling deal:

The takeaway? Short of upgrading your base package, there’s simply no better way to build your library, especially if you’re interested in a few specific topics. And the more books you add, the more you save. But you can’t wait—these triple discounts won’t be around for long.

Don’t miss this special opportunity: take 50% off bundles on the subjects you love.

Now Available: Evangelical Exegetical Commentary on Esther

Esther CoverThe story is a familiar one, made popular by Sunday school teachers, novels, and movies: her people threatened with extinction, Queen Esther must summon the courage to approach the Persian king Xerxes in order to save the Jews. But is the book of Esther only about being brave, or is there more to it?

Anthony Tomasino, director of the biblical studies program and associate professor of Bible, Old Testament, and Hebrew at Bethel College in Mishawaka, Indiana, examines this well-known story in Evangelical Exegetical Commentary: Esther. He studies the Hebrew text to bring out motifs of feasting, sovereignty, assertiveness, and reversal.

He also investigates the book’s connection with the celebration of Purim, the issue of assimilation into a foreign culture, the theme of the invincibility of the Jewish people, and the conspicuous absence of God’s name. He does all this while also stepping back to examine the big picture through the lens of biblical theology, helping readers apply the text to today by giving applications and devotional implications.

Evangelical Exegetical Commentary: Esther is the most recent volume in the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary (EEC) series. If you have purchased the EEC, this volume will download to your account automatically.

The other currently available EEC volumes are 1, 2, & 3 John, Exodus, Ezra & Nehemiah, JamesColossians & Philemon, and Ecclesiastes & Song of Songs. Buy the whole set now and save!

Get 50% Off 300 Christmas Quotations and Prayers

Quotes_Book-Cover300x200Christmas is coming. The days are getting shorter, the nights are getting colder, and pastors are planning services that anticipate and celebrate the coming of God in the flesh. It’s a unique challenge every year: in an environment that too often focuses on “Christmas spirit” rather than the Holy Spirit, how can churches reach people in fresh ways with the good news of Jesus’ birth?

To help meet this annual challenge, we’re offering 300 Christmas Quotations and Prayers. Over the past year, we released 300 Quotations for Preachers, 400 Prayers for Preachers, and 1,500 Quotations for Preachers (a five-volume collection divided by church era). In the same vein as those editions, 300 Quotations and Prayers for Christmas:

  • Provides material for service planning and sermon prep—All quotations and prayers are organized by Scripture reference and theme (like Birth of Jesus, Epiphany, or Fulfilled Prophecy). This means that if you’re preaching or focusing your worship service on a Scripture or topic, you can quickly find relevant quotations and prayers. This saves you the hours you might otherwise spend hunting through your library.
  • Makes sharing easyEach quotation and prayer is accompanied by a professionally designed slide that contains an excerpt, making it easy to share.
  • Updates language—For some quotations and prayers, archaic language (like “thee,” “thou,” and “beseech”) has been updated, so they’re ready to use in a modern context.
  • Takes you to the source—Each prayer includes a bibliographic citation, enabling you to track it down in its original context.

300 Quotations and Prayers for Christmas features 250 quotations, 50 prayers, and 30 Scripture passages, all relating to Christmas, Advent, and Epiphany. We’ve also included five benedictions. Rather than going through the Pre-Publication process, we’re making it available immediately. Just use coupon code STOCKINGSTUFFERS to get it for 50% off!

His revealing examinations tackle common misconceptions and give you a fresh perspective on Scripture.

What you get:

  1. Keeping the Ten Commandments: Packer dissects God’s intent for the Ten Commandments, arguing that that they’re not meant to be an antiquated list of legalisticKeeping the Ten Commandments rules, but instead God’s blueprint for living the best life possible.
  2. Affirming the Apostle’s Creed: Packer analyzes each phrase in the Apostle’s Creed—one of Christianity’s most loved and eloquent summaries. Packer’s discussion forces you to pause, reflect on each statement, and discover what it truly means to profess your faith.
  3.  A Grief Sanctified: In this book, Packer takes you on an emotional journey through six of life’s most powerful experiences and sensations: love, faith, death, grief, hope, and patience. Drawing on Richard Baxter’s poignant memoir about the passing of his wife, Packer reveals how Scripture guides us to cope with the tumult of emotions life throws at us.
