    [quote user="Dale E Heath"]I'm undecided on Connect Essentials. But now it's gone?[/quote] No, all the other Faithlife Connect configurations are still there. We just added a new Faithlife Connect Essentials (No Library) option for Logos Now customers, and those who prefer to own their library.

Faithlife TV isn't yet what it will be. For one thing, the Christian content library is just beginning, and as it grows it

  • Announcement: Logos Now to continue at same price (with new name)

    I am sorry for how we communicated the Logos Now / Faithlife Connect change. This was my fault, not the team's. We have been listening to your feedback and you have caused us to change our plan. The bottom line: We are reversing this change, and you do not have to do anything. You will be automatically returned to the situation as of two weeks ago,

    [quote user="Rob Lambert"]Bob implies that he can't stay in business with the Logos Now model.[/quote] I'm sorry if I wasn't clear enough... we're not in danger of going out of business. The Logos Now model wasn't working on its own, but one of the reasons it wasn't working was that so few base package users chose to use that model. (For all the sound

Most people purchased upgrades that mixed content and features; we thought

    Sorry for disappearing after a flurry of responses... I feel like I gave the best explanation I could, though...

Despite our (many!) mistakes and mishandled communication, we are always listening to and considering your input, because you

    [quote user="Donnie Hale"]What I (and many others, based on all the threads) wanted was a known, fixed cost that ensured I'd have all the features.

    [quote user="Mark"]Some people want specific books. Can they rent specific commentaries, books, resources? It seems by your answer that purchasing is always going to be necessary, and thus a hybrid is the only possible way to go. [/quote] Maybe, at some point. But you're correct, it'll always be a hybrid, just as my video consumption from Amazon is

    [quote user="Don Awalt"]The crux of the issue is that FL has developed a lot of extra stuff that is not profitable.[/quote] Don, this would be a great analysis, except that one thing is reversed: those 'extra things' aren't the unprofitable part... it's the 'free' Bible software that's unprofitable.
