The product page / feature set comparison was an easy way to help people understand what came with Basic.

(Those of us who already own a feature set now have no way to lookup and assist with any information about Basic features.)

Anyone can see everything included in Logos Basic, regardless of what you already own by visiting https://www.logos.com/product/136022/basic while signed out, or from an incognito window. 

Logos Basic is designed to be a true Logos experience, combining both features and library resources.  We do not want people to inadvertently get a crippled experience by checking out with only 1/2 of the product, so the Logos 7 Basic Feature Set product is not set up to be viewed separately on logos.com.

Either the contents of Logos 7 Basic have changed recently or accessing the page referenced from an incognito signed-out window no longer shows a complete list of what is included.

I wanted to check what the Logos basic version includes, because my husband loves the version that he has.  We wanted to offer some basic Bible tools for Chinese scholars, but the range of Bibles offered with the Logos Basic (i.e. KJB and Lexham ) is so anemic that we cannot serious recommend it to anyone under the age of 60 or so.  Great pity.  Logos appears to have developed into a means of raking in money "for the Lord", rather than serving His people.    

Great waste of excellent tools.

The point is that Logos Basic is free - and the KJV is in the Public Domain (functionally) and the Lexham Bible is Logos' own product. So instead of raking in money, Faithlife gives away a fully functioning version of the program including a number of resources that show how it works. On the other hand, modern bibles with a communicative translation philosophy - such as the NLT for example - are owned by publishing houses which insist on a royalty fee to be paid - you can easily add the translation of your choice to the basic package (nearly all bibles sell for less than $10, some are free, including a Chinese one).

The Basic (standard and verbum) pages continue to malfunction: resources already owned, downloaded, and unlocked still under the "New to You" view.
