Why isn't this bible available in Notes?:

NIV, Quest Study Bible, Leathersoft, Black, Thumb Indexed, Comfort Print: The Only Q and A Study Bible

I see the notes (or an extract from them) is available as an ebook but that's it.  Weird, right?

I wonder if Zondervan just refused to offer the rights up or something?

I do know this exists below though...

In my mind Logos could have done something similar. 

I love that the Quest Study Bible and the Logos Notes ebook at least give some weight and credence to answering peoples questions.  They give not the THE answer but the most commonly held answer as well as the most commonly asked questions on a given text.

Imagine if Logos or even the Faithlife Bible did something similar....maybe Zondervan can work together with Logos on this...just a wild thought.

Interesting idea.

Meanwhile, Jesus kept on growing wiser and more mature, and in favor with God and his fellow man.

Many years ago, Logos ran a topical bible search page called ‘What Does the Bible say?’ or something to that effect.

 These days the go to site is gotquestions.org - They do have a resource in Logos format but looks like the content hasn’t been updated for 6 years.

There is lots of these sorts of ideas I’m sure people could come up with that FL could easily implement, the challenge is how do they monetise them in order to be able to afford to keep the underlying required datasets updated and with some ideas update existing resources to take advantage of, be included as a part of these new ideas.

Smart reply I thank you for.  I continue to feel Logos needs to hire some people who try to remember what it was like to be a newbie seeking Christian who may have gotten their first copy of this great and powerful software.  Imho Logos has totally and completely lost that sense of wonder and confusion...and should always retain it going forward.  They could call it NEW DISCOVERERS or something and monetize it that way as a sales AND evangelism tool.

Excellent link by the way...I looked at the book and the sample online they show is certainly a bit scattered but I thought worth buying...so I did.  What is there is still valuable. Thanks for pointing me to it.

And more up to date... I wish logos would update that resource but it is free elsewhere

I have that resource in Logos and am glad I do.  It should be updated, but the existing content isn't out of date. I just used it a few days ago in counseling.

It out of date in that it is not up to date with questions and revisions to answers that have occurred since 2014 and one can access through the website or app as Paul pointed out.
