    I am currently reading through this commentary and enjoying Chisholm's insights. However there is a problem with the Logos version. It cuts out Chisholm's translation and his notes on the Hebrew text. As one example, I am currently reading through the account of Gideon in chapters 6-8. The commentary skips from p. 249 to p. 266, leaving out Chisholm's translation and notes. So beware if this is important to you...as it is to me. Meanwhile, I have contacted customer service and they have promised to send this on to marketing. Hopefully those of us who bought this product will be able to get the full version in the near future!

    I thought I already ordered this book on Ruth? I don't understand? Is this only something you download... or is there a tangible book?
