So you get benefits if you are a faithlife connect member.  On essentials and above you used to get 1 "faithlifeoriginal" and 1 "faithlifeclassic" book per month. 

Now you get

  • 3 "faithlifeclassic" books but no longer a free faithlifeoriginal (from a handpicked list.  In the latter's place
  • you get a one time per month order of 25% off Any Lexham book order.

I like Apples.  Especially Honeycrisp.

And they make the change to chat I had already paid for without even telling me what they were doing, OK I knew because I read the forum but it is really poor not to email me.

I understand that there have been issues recently with emails, but they said they were looking into is and basic communications should be sorted, especially when they see no problem in unilaterally changing a contract without agreement.

Jake Press (Faithlife):
As of March 1st, we are adding in new libraries (resources and books) all included in your subscription without you having to redeem anything.

I only received 3 titles on March 1 beyond what I purchased. Does that mean I already had licenses for all the new libraries? Are new resources part of the March 4 release of 8.3 that is much anticipated?

Ditto here. 3 Bonhoeffer books with Temporary license downloaded yesterday. Is that all?

Ben, can you post the full list of books we should be expecting so we can check against our own library?

Thanks,

Peter

Your lucky I have received none.

Will not renew after this year, will purchase current full feature before it expires, then its over.

Classics are not that important an investment, renewing was based on full feature access and free book- the incentive is gone.

The three Bonhoeffer books are the "standard" one-month preview set for all FL Connect subscribers... They are not, as far as I know, the "extra" library which was "promised" previously

would you care to share their titles (a screen shot, may be), so that we can determine whether we already purchased them and thus, no new extra downloads since 1 March?

Thanks for sharing, Andrew. Can confirm I don't have (at least) the first four books in that list.

@FaithLife - Would it be possible for you guys to provide an official list, please?

So I have Faithlife Connect: Essentials (No Library), which was converted from my Logos Now subscription. I did receive the email stating that I was going to get the temporary library downloaded on March 1st. I did not get anything additional downloaded, except normal monthly trial books. I don't think that I have anything from this list.

I have Faithlife Connect: Essentials (No Library) as well. And connect is the only reason that I can think of why FL would give me these temporary resources. I would think that yours will be coming! But, an official list from FL would be nice.

Actually, I take that back. I think I accidentally have two subscriptions going right now. Tongue Tied Faithlife Connect: Essentials (No Library) and a trial of the full Library. That might be why those came into my Library. Sorry about that! Embarrassed

I'm not exactly sure what's going on. I will take a look.

Hey Everyone, 

We are making an update to fix the issue for those of you that did not receive the new updated libraries. Please allow 48 hours for those libraries to show up in your account. Thank you in advance.

Oh no, I actually thought something had changed & it allows me to get 2 books for free & a third one for $1.82.
