Verbum 7 Fundamentals comes with a very nice set of resources for the price.

My one quibble is an easily-corrected mistake: whereas Logos 7 Fundamentals has an academic discount, Verbum 7 Fundamentals presently does not.

They should also have the same or at at least most of the datasets that Logos 7 Fundamentals has.

The following Datasets are in Logos Fundamentals but not in Verbum Fundamentals:

  • Biblical Events
  • Biblical Places
  • Biblical Places Maps
  • Biblical Things
  • Biblical Referents
  • English Audio Pronunciations Dataset
  • Speaking to God Dataset

The following Interactives and Features are in Logos Fundamentals but not in Verbum Fundamentals:

  • Biblical Event Navigator
  • Names of God Interactive
  • Speaking to God Interactive
  • Fuzzy Bible Search
  • Multiview Resources

I just want to make sure people know what they're getting when they get Verbum Fundamentals and don't assume that they'll have the same program capabilities as Logos Fundamentals. Hopefully Faithlife will make the two more equal in terms of datasets at some point. I think a package marketed as "Fundamentals" should at least have Biblical Places/Place Maps/Things/Events/Referents, Biblical Event Navigator, and Multiview Resources. That's a lot of functionality in Logos that Verbum is just leaving on the table, as is providing a Verbum Fundamentals user with a drastically different user experience (not just a customized Catholic experience) than a Logos Fundamentals user. Sure, there are some Catholic-specific resources and tools in Verbum Fundamentals that Logos Fundamentals doesn't have, but I still don't think the two packages balance out in terms of functionality, particularly when in comes to searching.

SineNomine, Verbum 7 Fundamentals should now be included in the same Academic Discounts as Logos 7 Fundamentals.  Let me know if you still find it to be otherwise.

Kiyah, I've addressed your concerns about the features in your initial post.
