The Crossway Pilgrim's Progress pre-pub is already a Faithlife ebook, the difference in the two editions is a different cover. Will owners of the FL ebook receive the Logos edition when it's released?

Here are the links:

Looking at the two links, it seems they are different books.  If the same book than the answer would usually be yes but the FLEB one is from 2009 and the Logos one is a 2020 version.  The 2009 mentioned 40 something images whereas the 2020 one mentions 30 something images.  Even though it is mostly the same, it is technically a new book.  I hope I'm wrong for your sake though!

They're different. The ebook version is ISBN 9781433518805, the Logos version is ISBN 9781433562501. Maybe it's a new edition. Apparently the language has been updated.

(I already own two editions, so I'm not going to buy a third or fourth one...)

Thanks for the replies. I'm not convinced though. The beginning of the FL ebook has the exact same author testimonial quotes by Packer, Fitzpatrick, Tada. Also the FL ebook lists exactly 30 illustrations in the list of illustrations, has updated language, and has the same wording and footnote numbers as the Logos pre-pub sample. Crossway's website even says that the 2020 edition is simply a "redesign" not a new edition. So it seems to be the same book, which is why they simply re-used the same author testimonials. It would be nice to have the better Logos formatting, but I guess FL is treating the books as two different editions.

Maybe, like me, you want to buy it again!

If they have different ISBN's, then the publisher considers it a different book in terms of licensing. I would not count on receiving a free upgrade (but it would be nice!).
