It’s missing the filter to show what books are not owned.

It also doesn't show any book titles, just author's names. My dynamic price for 244 of the 246 books is $247.32, which is more than the stated "Right now, you can get them for less than one dollar a book." After I signed out my price dropped to $199.99. Something's wrong with dynamic pricing.

My plan is to wait to see if any changes are made to the listing, then purchase it before the end of the year and see what downloads. Then decide to return it or not. It looks to be fixed now.

It does now.

It's working for me at the moment.

It has it now. What I don't see is a number telling me how many new resources I'll get if I buy it.

In my opinion, this collection is over priced considering the amount of public domain books. If you prefer quality over quantity, you might want to pass.

The collection does include many works that are not in the public domain.

If you want enough of the works, public domain of not, that are in this collection for it to be worth your discounted price, go for it.

The following four non-public domain books alone are sold (at regular price) for more than the cost of this bundle (with no dynamic discount):

https://www.logos.com/product/162578/commentaries-on-galatians-philemon

https://www.logos.com/product/162573/commentary-on-isaiah

https://www.logos.com/product/161331/the-old-testament-and-apocrypha

https://www.logos.com/product/169465/acts

Certainly, those four works are all available in other bundles at reduced prices, but those are only four works out of over 240 in the bundle... for plenty of folks, it won't be hard to find $200 worth (to them) of resources in this booster, even if no value whatsoever is placed on any of the resources in the public domain.

For me I am not concerned about whether it is public domain or not but whether the content is of interest . I much rather a public domain book Logos where I can search, highlight and take notes along with the rest of my library rather than accessing it from some archive site in PDF, text or kindle format.

Each to their own but personally the 2019 library builder is a fair mix of resources and I am happy with the mix I was able to add to my library for $25. I like to read widely, outside of my comfort zone and time period to gain exposure to other views and approaches in order to check my own - i don’t limit my theological community to only those who are modern and fit ‘my doctrinal positions’. I think the library builder is a great offer.

The quirky thing for me is that I'd be paying for many Faithlife Connect Classics resources which I could eventually freely get each month as a subscriber.

Nice collection. I had to sign out to see how good it was overall. You really can't go wrong with this one.

These public domain resources are a very helpful litmus test to determine whether certain interpretations are culturally influenced. They point out blind spots.

Just how much is too much? I'm still undecided whether to get this offer or the Catholic Answers library at 20% off and one of the Craig Evans books on sale...

For me there wasn’t any Faithlife Connect Classics resources that I was paying for that are left in the list for me to choose from so I didn‘t have to factor that into my decision. I do always look at that though when these sort of bundles come out. With not a lot of classics left to choose from I then don’t want to turn around and purchase them a number of them.

Dynamic $18.34 for 25 items, but nothing that was in my wish list. Mostly filler and canon (sp intentional) fodder. A few recent items that make it worth keeping.
