I was looking at the Logos.com site for this book. The 53 volume set sells for $1750.00, which is quite a large sum to pay out. I had the idea to search it on Google, to see if I could get it any cheaper. I found the whole set could be accessed for free in the Google ebookstore! I was able to glean what I needed from the book without having to pay out over a thousand dollars. I appreciate the people involved that took the time to scan and download this set. It must have been a tremendous and tedious undertaking.
