I am new to Logos and just recently purchased the Gold pkg. Not sure why the Expanded and Amplified Versions of the Bible are not included or am I not searching it correctly?

Hi Arthur; Welcome to the forums.

Can you give us the full title of the Bible in question?

When I look at the product page https://www.logos.com/product/43520/gold they are not included in your purchase.  As Faithlife balances cost, contracts, demand and resource balance, and as the forums are primarily simply other users, I'm unable to answer the why. You can, however, purchase them separately if they are important to your Bible study.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Unless I am mistaken, these two Bibles are not included in the Standard Gold base package. You can see the included contents here:

First of all, Welcome to the forums! Smile

To jump off of MJ's post, I don't know the "why" either, but the base packages DO change over time... meaning that if you had purchased an L4 base package, it might have been in there. It might be back in an "L7" base package. 

Since you are new, I should explain that Faithlife tries to always have "dynamic pricing." This means that when new base packages are released, you <should> be paying only for the new resources which are added to your collection. You wouldn't be purchasing the NIV over again, for example. 

As for the resources in particular... Again, I don't know the "why." I will say, however, that what is important to YOU or ME might not be <as> important to other users.

Well, thanks, everyone for your willingness to help.

I just checked under Products on the Logos website and looks like the Expanded Version is not one of their products even if I am willing to pay for it. But, the Amplified Version is there for $20.

Could either of these be it?

Thanks! It's the first one on your list but looks like it only has the NT. The printed hardcopy is both OT and NT.

I guess my search string is not correct or precise enough. What search string did you use find the first one? You got me curious.

The Expanded Bible is actually more modern than the Amplified and they included more shades of meaning from the original texts.

"Expanded New Testament"     I remembered it from browsing resources earlier.
