So in a few idle moments I ventured to...

Get started with Connect - Faithlife Connect | One subscription, hundreds of Christian resources

and went to Ebooks and copied my code.

From the list I selected three free  books but...

and that doesn't look free to me!

So how should it actually work?

It worked for me ... but I clicked on the link with the code to get to the available books

The last item is not free because it is not one of the "classics".

Choose your selections from the following list:

https://www.logos.com/products/search?Resource+Type=Faithlife+Ebooks+Classics&unlocked=no&start=&sort=pricehi&pageSize=60

Thanks Michael The question to those running the scheme is why the link to Ebooks on the 'Get started' page leads to a list of books which are not (necessarily) free.

The link you posted would have been more helpful and less confusing – especially, I imagine, for those who are actually getting started.

On the "Getting Started" page, under the code, there's a button for Browse Faithlife eBooks. That shows some featured freebies. At the bottom of that page is a button See All eBooks. That's the official route for finding your freebies. The link above is a better alternative if you need 'unlocked=no'.

Has the list been expanded yet?

For example the code doesn't work with either of these:

https://www.logos.com/product/157184/the-first-epistle-of-john-expounded-in-a-series-of-lectures

The Acts of the Apostles Explained, Volume I

Also, the 'unlocked=no' link lists 2,064 books when we were promised 3,000+ in the other thread?

you need to remove this filter to see the whole list, since this of course depends on your library. For some, "unlocked=no" reduces it to only a few, for others, it's thousands. The whole list, disregarding what people may already own, is 3000+

Choose your selections from the following list:

https://www.logos.com/products/search?Resource+Type=Faithlife+Ebooks+Classics&unlocked=no&start=&sort=pricehi&pageSize=60

 

Which leaves 14 books for me in either Spanish or Russian, this choice is useless to me.

Hm. It does work for me. And the full list on Logos.com, i.e. https://www.logos.com/products/search?Resource+Type=Faithlife+Ebooks+Classics&start=&sort=pricehi&pageSize=60 shows 3.183 resources. This list may be somewhat outdated.

The official link https://ebooks.faithlife.com/search?context=product&sortBy=bestselling&limit=15&filters=Faithlife+Ebooks+Classics%3aresourcetype-faithlifeebooksclassics_Resource+Type  even has 3187 resources, so possibly they added four more or so (but this site has no option to filter out those you already own, you need to scroll accross or so)

I get the full list of books, but I get no discount :-(

The list of free books is inconsistent - it has some books from a collection but not others.

For example it seems to have all the books from Classic Commentaries and Studies on Acts EXCEPT

https://www.logos.com/product/30412/the-acts-of-the-apostles-explained-volume-i
https://www.logos.com/product/30413/the-acts-of-the-apostles-explained-volume-ii

They are only $9.99 each so it's not that they are worth more than the other books in the collection. What's going on?

Concur Logos.com list shows 3,183 Classic resources, which is the same list using &unlocked=yes for me. Hence &unlocked=no shows "We couldn't find what you were looking for." so dreaming about Classic list expansion.

Edit: Searching Logos.com for Classic => https://www.logos.com/products/search?q=classic&Status=Live&unlocked=no has 715 results, which includes Classic Studies on the Apostle Peter (20 vols.) , Classic Studies on Logic (5 vols.) , Classic Studies on Ethics and Moral Philosophy (9 vols.) , Classic Studies on the Problem of Good and Evil (6 vols.) , Medical Works of Antiquity (16 vols.) , Roman Historians Collection (22 vols.) , Select Works of Oscar Wilde (7 vols.) , The Harvard Classics and Fiction Collection (71 vols.) so Classic expansion potential includes 186 resources.

Pre-publication not is my orders list is => Classic Studies on Baptism (42 vols.)

Would love to get a response from faithlife on this:

It seems Faithlife added some 2500 books to the list. Not sure whether you already own all of those, but the official link from the connect page https://ebooks.faithlife.com/search?context=product&sortBy=bestselling&limit=15&filters=Faithlife+Ebooks+Classics%3aresourcetype-faithlifeebooksclassics_Resource+Type now shows 5707 - for whatever reason, on Logos.com there are 'only' 5668.
