David Wanat:

That reminds me of a glitch I've seen for Verbum Portfolio:

This ended up not being the same issue, but instead was a display error. I have fixed this one now as well.

Daniel, should not Ultimate contain all the resources from all of the starter packages? Am I correct?

All English packages except for any new lines that were started after the launch of Logos 8 (Messianic Jewish, Eastern Rite, etc.). We have a call out about the Messianic Jewish packages on the Ultimate page but I've clarified that language now about the other Verbum lines released after launch.

Thanks. I think there's another one with "17th Century Works" 0 for Diamond/Portfolio. 1 for Platinum

Best deal so far on a base package 😂

So did you get it?

I’m getting Bronze since it’s 1 cent cheaper 😂

Sounds like a plan!

I was able to buy 4 different Bronze packages for $102.72 and received 423 new resources. I added the Baptist, Catholic, Orthododox, & Messianic Jewish Bronze packages to my library yesterday. Interestingly enough, now the Messianic Jewish Silver dropped from $70.95 to $40.94, after I had spent $17.57 on the Bronze package.

Apologies if I have missed this , as a newbie my forum searching may not be much better than my Logos searching! 

In the spirit of buying these packages, is there any way to buy Verbum base packages "library only"? I'm subscribed to FL Connect so am offered the choice with the Logos ones, but the Verbum ones are still combined.

I realise I could probably take a trial Verbum subscription, but don't want to pay for both going forward.

Many thanks - I must say I have found this forum hugely helpful so far in getting set up most effectively!Smile

Yes, there is, see below.  Is that what you mean?

Friedrich, thank you for your reply. My account has that option for all Logos packages, but for Verbum it just shows the one total price including the features (as if viewing the Logos site without being logged in).

I wonder if it’s because I don‘t own the feature set (apart from L8 Fundamentals). Maybe I should stop buying books until I’ve read the ones I’ve got so far!

Are you aware that the Verbum feature set is some what different from the Logos feature set?

That's one way to save money - don't buy any more til you have read the ones you have.  But other resources are useful in searching - one of the powers of Logos / Verbum.  All depends on what you plan to use them for.

Thanks David, I hadn’t realised the features differed. Think I’ll just pay up my sub and start reading!

I don't really own any feature sets (I may own some, perhaps) but in both Logos and Verbum base packages, on both sites, I show this distinction. I'm not sure why you don't.  if you contact customerservice@faithlife.com or sales@faithlife.com and ask them about it. You should always have the option to NOT get the features.  A screen shot could be helpful so we can see what you see.  

I also mostly "rent" the features with faithlife connect essentials, although I do own some feature sets.

Welcome, and glad you are asking questions and enjoying the software...wish I could be more helpful!

there is a lot of common ground, though, for the bulk of it.

I had already gotten most of the Starter packages last year, but this is generally a good strategy. The Starters have a lot of basic, simple reference resources that range far beyond their packages' denominational labels.

I finally got around to getting Verbum Ordinariate Bronze at a great price. This package has a lot to offer people with a wide range of interests. Besides some of the Anglo/Catholic materials you might expect, it has several works on "Theology of the Body," many of which are priced individually for more than what the whole package cost me. I think I did get one new dataset with it.

I did something similar last year. If I hadn't gotten an upgrade for Orthodox (it was a cheaper way to finish my "Fathers of the Church" collection), I would have considered upgrading everything to Bronze. I did upgrade Anglican and Ordinariate to Silver though.
