All of this is so confusing! I bought Logos 8 with the full data set when it came out. BUT I was considering to becoming a Connect Essentials subscriber. First I was told the licenses for the 3 books and the Bible Study Magazine and the 2 Courses were all temporary...but then I am told that no, they are permanent licenses.....so which is it?

And basically why is it a good thing to become a subscriber? Can someone convince of this? What exactly would I get??????

The licenses for the three free books you can choose each month are permanent. You will always own those resources.

Bible Study Magazine is a benefit of the subscription, and access would end when your subscription ends.

The two free courses per year are also a benefit. You get temporary access to them for six months.

If you already own the full feature set, you'd be paying to rent features as well as own them.

Unless all the other benefits justify the subscription price, it might not be worth it for you to subscribe.

But is the selection for these "three free books" any good?

You can choose from 1000s of public domain titles that Logos has produced over the years. So it depends on whether you find value in older books. In another recent thread they are discussing how great it is that The Jewish Encyclopedia is available as part of this and if you want that you'll save $54 right away. https://community.logos.com/forums/t/180677.aspx

Honestly, that was what got my attention. I already had that resource, but I thought if this was "typical," the subscription might be something that I should consider.

I find it more helpful to only list the ones I don't have.
