I'm unsure why these are here... I do notice that the "live" one is a Galaxy resource. Perhaps FL is simply making their own version?

Yes, this is annoying.  I have the one, but not the other...and it is the same resource.

When you have a large library, you sometimes don't realize that you are purchasing a book you already have

What I noticed is that one has a publication date of 1965 while the other has a publication date of 1991 and is in prepub.

It would be wonderful if Faithlife/Logos would adopt a more uniform standard of designating the nature of each resource: 

State explicitly not just "Format: Logos Resource" but either "Logos Research Edition" or "Logos Reader Edition."

State explicitly the number of pages in the book: if unpaginated in the digital edition give pages in the print edition when knowable.

In the case of the Walvoord volumes on the Holy Spirit, I suspect this newer offering might be a Logos Reader Edition. If so, the older edition for study purposes in the Logos Research Edition is a better choice, though I find some resources inadequately tagged. To partially remedy that I keep my Library open in a floating window by author to follow the documentation in the book text to resources I often have in my Logos library.

I always check for the # of pages.  I feel I am being a good steward of my money if the book is long enough to justify the cash outlay I will make.  This is a ROI factor.

I am not happy if I have to go to Amazon or christianbook to see if someone has the # of pages listed.

Precisely my situation and sentiments. Curious to see how this is addressed.

We are busy investigating this situation.  I apologize for the inconvenience.

According to the details at Amazon, the hardcover edition was published in 1968 (not 1965, but close) by Dunham Publishing Company, and the paperback edition, in 1991 by Zondervan. Now the question is whether the content has been updated...
