It's a Zondervan-published eBook. See https://community.logos.com/forums/p/177623/1027201.aspx#1027201 for the official statement.

Well ok then. I'll just have to use the paperback version. Thanks for the thread explanation.

I really do hope that he managers who overlook the Faithlife ebook contracts at HCCP see a substantive reduction in royalties caused by lost sales to international customers (hopefully a big reduction against an overall positive trend at their competitors on the same platform), since I suspect that's the only way they come to their senses. That's the reason I try to refrain from buying those things "unshippable" to me from an alternative ebook platform, which would give HCCP the same royalties from my pockets just through another place and weaken FL's position.

If I want the specific book, I'll try to go for a used paperback: no royalties. But even better is to buy from another publisher at ebooks.faithlife.com.

You are assuming that HCCP owns the rights. It is not uncommon for British Commonwealth rights to be a separate block sold separately by the author. When one really needs to know, checking for a resource on Amazon - US, CA, UK, and IN usually lets one determine how the English market is split.

My remark was reflecting on the general unavailability of all HCCP ebook titles, due to HCCP unwilling to sell those to international customers unless the platform applies localized, HCCP-dictated prices (in localized currency) - trusting the official FL explanation for this situation.

In fact I don't care about the specific resource Milkman wanted to buy, but I'm annoyed at the way HCCP wants to enforce their idea of doing business onto FL and all of us.

It's available for Kindle for $6.98. I just bought it, in fact. I read it once for a class taught by J.I. Packer years ago and still have the paperback edition, but it's the sort of thing I'd want to add to my Logos library just for reference. Too bad I can't.

right. I saw the Kindle version, but like you, I'd rather have it in Logos. Well snow is finally falling in the Prairies Sad

When it is a FREE book, just remove your card and you will be able to get the book. Another option to try would be to buy store credit for you account and, then, delete your card and use the credit to buy it.
