HI Dale, this is intentional!  Your first link is to a new Logos edition we are making.  The second link is to the ebook.  The new Logos edition will provide better research capabilities and interaction with the software.  Hope that helps!

If they're different, they shouldn't have the same ISBN. How can that be?

Great question, the content is the same, which is why they have the same ISBN.  The ebook version has a limited capacity within Logos.  When we recreate them into a Logos edition, you'll see the use/interaction with the software to be much more robust.  For clarity, we have three different types of materials, there's more info here: https://www.logos.com/logos-editions but a quick summary:

Logos Research Editions get the full Logos treatment. We catalogue topics discussed, Scripture references, theological concepts, bibliographic info, citations, and so much more. Then we connect them to Logos tools so you can access essential info in seconds flat.

Logos Reader Editions are designed to be read cover to cover. We tag Scripture references and some other basics, but forgo the robust treatment given to reference works. This drastically speeds up production, enabling us to release them the same day as print!

eBooks aren't mentioned on that page, but they are auto-converted, so may have some wonky formatting. Bible references are added by a machine. It will pick up John 3:16, but won't pick up v16. 

Hopefully that clarifies things for you!

I think that you have the two links reversed.

No, he has them right. 

The first link is the upcoming Logos reader edition. The second one is the FLEB copy.
