The Bible Speaks Today series is being updated and revised. It seems a bit odd that the latest updated volume is being released as an ebook and not as a Logos volume.

Yes it does seem a bit odd. Perhaps they are releasing it as an ebook to see how sales fly before updating it to a Logos volume. Thanks for the tip, I have placed my preorder.

FL has no incentive to do so. 

The two most likely scenarios: 

  1. It is a mistake.
  2. FL has lost the ability to have that resource as a "Logos edition" without any hope of getting it added. 

And really, its #1.

So, is the ebook format a sort of “sub-reader version“? I get the difference between Reader and Logos editions. I’m not clear on what “ebook” quality means.

I'll see if I can find a thread where Mark Barnes (a FL employee) chimes in. However, there is a different issue here: FLEB titles use a different sort of licensing agreements with the publishers. The prices are more heavily controlled by the publisher... They are auto converted resources directly from the publisher files.

This situation does seem to be a bit..... unusual.  We are looking into this.

Hey everyone, thanks for bringing this to our attention!  We did pull this ebook version down.  With this commentary we'll be getting the Logos Research edition up soon!
