I own the following book:

Angels: What the Bible Really Says about God’s Heavenly Host

I can access it from the logos app, but not from the ebooks app.  I check on the ebooks website and it clearly says that I own it, but I search for it on the ebooks app and nothing comes up.  Any idea why?

Check the toggle to enable books other than just those purchased from the Faithlife ebooks store

by default the ebook app is set to only show Faithlife ebooks, so Logos books will not show up their unless you uncheck it. 

Use the hamburger menu button in the lower right, then setting and you will see under library the switch to toggle

I have toggled the option and it doesn't make any difference.  I also tried restarting the app with the toggle in both positions, but still, this book doesn't come up.

Which home page?  In the ebooks app?  I don't see a command bar.

Andrew Lucas:

Press the icon which looks like a house.

Andrew Lucas:

Presumably. I don't have FLEB installed, but all of the apps are basically the same.

EDIT: I just checked, and the answer is "yes."

It's at the top of the home page.

I entered the command in the text box at the top of the home page (the one that says "Enter passage or search".  There was no indication that it was doing anything, but when I went to search for the resource it was there.  

Thanks for the help with this solution.

I was surprised how non obvious this was.  Logos should really make this a selection in the settings.

Cheers,

It isn't a normal thing that most users will need... but the index does get stuck sometimes. The command is a bit of "inside baseball."
