I was really excited to see Rose Publishing's $20 Bible Overview for 99 cents. Wow! Too good to be true! I checked Amazon to be sure it was good as I thought. Momentarily I thought about asking on the forum to be sure that what Logos offered as a $20 book for 99 cents included the lovely graphics and charts--which is why I wanted the book.  But for the price, I just bought it.

Well....no charts and no graphics.  Owell.  It was only 99 cents.  

What you actually get (exactly as the example Logos provides) is something like this for each of 66 books:

Minor Prophets

Haggai

  • Who: Haggai
  • What: Prophecy and hope
  • Where: Judah
  • When: c. 520 BC
  • Why: To urge the people to complete rebuilding the Temple
  • Outline (Chapter) Rebuild Temple (1) Blessings (2) David's Throne (2)
  • Key Verse: This is what I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt. And my Spirit remains among you. Do not fear. (Haggai 2:5)

Bible Overview is an excellent Bible study resource for new believers or for anyone who wants to learn more about the Word of God.

So, how do I get the real thing?

And I am curious, is the actual retail value of this product $20 as advertised?

It doesn't look to me like it's available in Vyrso.

I think this is the paper equivalent ($3.59):

You think these are intended to be the same?

This is what Logos advertises:

Do you think this is what they are delivering?

It's quite obviously an error.

Yep I got duped into that as well. There is an identically named product on Amazon that is the book described above. A couple hundred pages with lots and lots of charts. Real nice looking an may even be worth $20.00. This is a .99 sent opportunity to get something that has more space provided at the end for advertising what you did not get and links to the Rose web site where you can go buy them. No more Rose products for me.

On a laptop it took 45 clicks to go from the top to the bottom a section at a time. With the TOC taking 5 and the advertisement space at the end taking 3.

It would be nice if they would go back and fix it by actually including the charts.

This Bible Overview (pamphlet) on Amazon has the same cover as what is advertised on Vyrso. It does seem more like a small booklet on Vyrso rather than a pamphlet?

I think the link you provided is for a bundle of 5 copies "Bible Overview pamphlet- pkg of 5 pamphlets"

Keep in mind this is a $20 value book according to Logos.  What would one expect for $20?  And the full retail price of the 256 page book on Amazon is $19.99.

Logos will give you your money back if you contact Customer Service, and mention the erroneous product description page to them so they can get someone to fix it. This thread is not likely to get seen by anyone inside the company as they don't usually monitor the "General" forum.

Alternatively, you could repost this issue in the Logos.com Website forum, as someone (Mike Estes these days) looks at and responds to that one regularly.

It's not such a big deal, really.  Just a curiosity.  But this does make me wonder which of the 5 may be my apology language.  Did Gary Chapman miss #6 "Just get over it."

I am over it.

Yes, but someone ought to report this to Logos so that other don't become similarly confused, and you found the problem, so I was hoping you'd report it. No biggie if you don't feel like it.

Thank you for making us aware of the very high normal price, I apologize for any inconvenience. I've adjusted the normal retail price down to $3.99.
