Henry M. Robert (1837–1923) gave his last name to the book that has brought order to millions of meetings. He was a U.S. Army Engineeer and studied parliamentary law through experiences in civil and church organizations. He published the first edition of Robert’s Rules of Order on February 19, 1876 and completed three revised editions until his death. He retired from the U.S. Army in 1901 and received a posthumous promotion to brigadier general. He is buried in Arlington Cemetery.

    I was excited to see Robert's Rules, until I saw how outdated this version is. No use in purchasing this volume as it has no biding effect today.

    I too find it very interesting that Faithlife is charging $19.99 for a much outdated version of the book Robert's Rules of Order. You have the Fourth Edition shown here when Robert's Rules of Order is currently on the 11th Edition.

    Why is this version so old and not up to date please?

    In addition, the bidding system seems to be rigged. Routinely. If there were lower bid options, they would be used. And the process described by Logos would be free to happen. In fact, there's a price floor which seems to be arbitrarily set and changes seemingly arbitrarily as well.

    Ditto Chris Dickason's review below! My late father (who lived to 103) as a vice chairman and elder used a more recent edition over 50 years ago! Many insights and commentaries dealing with the Bible are timeless - accepted meeting procedures do evolve, and could even have legal ramifications! It is most frustrating that Faithlife has exhibited a tendency to negotiate contracts with outdated or superseded works (e.g. a very old edition of the true Encyclopedia Britannica) in order to offer them. What is worse, they fail to clearly indicate that more recent editions are available in print form, or even as e-books! It is left for the users to make this discovery. Thus, when ordering a resource, one must never assume it is the most recent, current version or edition of the material. To me, this suggests a deliberate oversight for marketing purposes, and a rather poor testimony. Sadly, Caveat Emptor.

    This edition is 96 years, 7 editions, and 300 pages behind - Robert's Rules is now at the 11th edition (2011). Would love to see Faithlife/Logos collaborate with the authorized, current edition of Robert's Rules.
