While this isn't a make-or break deal for me, I'm pretty disappointed in the list offered this month. That alone wouldn't cause me to write. But when I try to purchase the ONLY book I'm even tempted by, still short of interested in, it's automatically removed from my shopping card because I already own it. This was my reaction last month, too, & I bought it then, apparently. Hmm

At least I'm consistent. Zip it!

Same here. The first two months still offered something more academic, but since then nothing to even bother. Please bring back the list of twenty and include something more solid (even Lexham guides or volumes of Osborne's commentary series.

It is a make or break deal for me. I own already own 8 out of the 10 listed books.

I have to pick between these two:

  1. The Paradox of Happiness by René Breuel ($5.99)
  2. David and Goliath Rethinking David and Goliath by Lisa A. Eary ($21.99)

We had way more choices in the past.

I just got the last book available for me today- and I really didn't want it- but its free- they need to do something or just drop the pretense to this being a benefit.

I cannot even find any classic books that do not own apart from one Russian title and a few Spanish volumes

Totally agree... I used to look forward to the first day of every month... It was "freebie day". I would look forward to the Logos "free book of the month", the Faithlife free ebook of the month, the classic free book, and an original free book. I really felt the benefits of being a Connect Faithlife subscriber. On top of that, recently a number of the free books offered are unable to be downloaded due to me being a UK Logos customer. The benefits of Connect Faithlife have definitely lost their sparkle... 

A major refresh would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Jake,

my present Connect Essentials subscription will expire in February. I’m really not sure if I want to renew the Essential subscription at $199.99 for another year, but am willing to be persuaded. i have the full features purchased already, and feel the choice of free monthly classic or original books are not ones that excite me any longer, and featured monthly sets seem to be very academic. The only thing that is stopping me from unsubscribing is the offer of any 2 video courses each year. Are we going to see any major new changes to the content, or fresh new enticements (in the way of fresh content) to stay with the subscription in 2019?

Do you know when we can expect to see digital versions of the 2019 Bible Study Monthly Magazine in our library as connect subscribers?  We are two issues in now and nothing digital yet.  Thank you

HI Scott, 

Thank you for your message and your patience as we begin the new year. We have big plans for Faithlife Connect in 2019 and updates to content in one of the things you will expect to see in March. The team is working on adjusting the benefits and adding additional value exclusively for Connect subscribers, that is all I can say right now of the forthcoming plans. Discoverability is high priority for us and we plan to expand how we show what is available each month across all of different products. We appreciate customers like yourself that help us shape this product to provide the best online service for studying the Bible. Thank you. More to come...

I'm glad that you are using the video courses! If I may ask, what have been your favorites thus far?

Thanks, 

Connect Team

Thank you Jake.  I would love to go 100% digital with my BSM subscription sometime in the future but I would like for the issues to arrive timely to make it an option.  I hope that one day it does to make a digital subscription possible for me.  For now, I'll keep my paper subscription and I'll look forward to the future digital ones as well.

Jake I noticed BSM Volume 11 appeared today for me.  Do you have any thoughts on what will happen with volume 11?  Will it eventually become available for purchase or will it be included with connect?

I am having troubles following your train of thought. Do you mean, "...or will it only be included with connect?"

I will attempt to clarify myself.  Volume 10 was included for free to connect subscribers so I'm wondering if volume 11 will be the same?  If the previous is correct, will volume 10 come off the connect package? <-- This seems to be the case as I haven't purchased volume 11 and it is in my library but I did purchase volume 10.

Also, volume 10 is available for purchase on the Logos site.  I could not find volume 11 so I'm curious if/when that might become available.
