Nothing on the product page to indicate that it does.

These were formerly known as "Holman Quicksource Guide ...", and all Holman Quicksource Guides are complete with colour pictures and charts.

So these are the expanded versions. Thanks! I didn’t realize I own the “Quicksource” versions, so I’m good.  No need to purchase!

These are clearly identical resources. The Quicksource guides are Logos editions, the Ultimate Guides are ebook editions.

Interestingly though, the image quality in the ebook editions is much better. The pictures in the Logos editions look like bad scans.

If I remember right, the "Ultimate Guide to Defend Your Faith" was even one of the ebook +1's last month. Looks like I paid $2.99 for a book that I already had, but maybe it's worth having it just for the nicer images.

Yep I noticed the bad quality of the pictures.  They are missing the volume on Bible characters, though.

Hey all, this is completely irrelevant, but I'm curious: should the correct title not be The Complete Guide to DefendING Your Faith?

I guess not since the other competitors have it Defend instead of defendING...go figure.  Grammar is not as good as it used to be 😂

Sadly, it's a common issue with resources that contain pictures. They look like they were made with a lousy flatbed scanner from the 90s...

Then you look up the Kindle edition, go to "look inside", and see crisp and pristine images (which most likely come directly from the publisher).

It would be a huge improvement to replace these scans with publisher provided images in all the affected works, not only photos, but also (and especially) maps, diagrams, illustrations etc. as they sometimes have very fine printed text on them.
