Why can's Faithlife get some consistency in advertising their products.

Just looked at a 16 course package for mobile Ed for Dr. Heiser. I know I own some of the courses but there is no way to look at what I own or do not, no, there is no list of resources in that sort of format.

Similarly, books do not always have page numbers. We are buying books, right?

Just from time to time seems like Faithlife does not want to give details and it feels sneaky. Like they are trying to get over on us. Not the first person to bring this up.

FaithLife does realize over 800 dollars is a lot of money especially in a Covid 19 economy. So maybe they could give us information they give for other sets.

I don't think they're being sneaky, but I would like them to do a better breakdown on what is contained in a video package

Faithlife marketing never tries to be sneaky. It's always accidental.

As long as 'everyone else does it', it can't be sneaky. That's what grace is for.

🤔 Not sure I get your point here...

David, thanks for bringing this error to our attention. Speaking on behalf of the courses, there was a problem with 3 of our new product pages. Those 3 new Michael Heiser Course Collection pages should be fixed now. You should have visibility into which resources you already own within these collections. Thanks for your patience!

You need to keep up with Capitalistic Christianity (which has followed Post-Modern).  Any Christian behavior, if common to Capitalism, is 'ok'. And if not, there's gracification as a backup (everyone's fallen, so that's ok too).

Strange. It's certainly not something I've encountered as part of my religious beliefs.

Interestingly, the Pope expounded on the trend this Sunday (no intent to mis-apply his words):

"The marketplace, by itself, cannot resolve every problem, however much we are asked to believe this dogma of neoliberal faith. Whatever the challenge, this impoverished and repetitive school of thought always offers the same recipes … the magic theories of ‘spillover’ or ‘trickle’ — without using the name."

David,

I'm sorry you had this experience with Heiser's new Master Course Collection.

I discovered (after the fact) another problem (in addition to the one I fixed, mentioned above).

At the time that we made this new collection live, at least 2 of the courses in the collection were still in our pre-pub program. Our dynamic pricing engine does not play well with our pre-pub pricing program and so this was another reason why your personalized price for the 16 course collection was not rendering correctly.

I just wanted to assure you that this was a tech mistake that I missed, not a marketing strategy.

If for any reason that product page isn't behaving correctly now, please let me know.

Thanks for your patience.
