    This add doesn't state the limited words One reviewer writes Beware this is a fine addition to your Library but it is far from complete. 2100+ of the most in depth entries were not included. Because in general Britannica never licences out it articles larger than 1200 words. Knowing this you still get a massive amount of the encyclopedia. And you do get 550 of those larger articles that are considered most important for the humanities and religious studies two major omissions from this are Martin Luther and C. S. Lewis.

    With all due respect to other reviewers, I'm actually very happy with this purchase. Having ordered this on pre-pub when it was originally announced and receiving the Compton's Encyclopedia along the way, I was delighted today when I finally got a chance to peruse the Britannica Noet edition. I don't have a basis for assessing the extent to which this edition is abridged (nor did I have any expectation of an unabridged set at this price), but I can say that I'm very pleased with the broad range of articles in this edition and the excellent graphics it contains (comparable to no other resource in my Logos library). As for textual content, all the articles I have consulted so far have been sufficient to orient me within a subject so that I can more intelligently approach primary sources. That's what I expect a good encyclopedia to do. When I originally ordered this resource, I was influenced by Britannica's reputation for comprehensive depth as well as my desire for a reliable encyclopedia that integrates fully within the Logos/Noet core engine and library. While I'd certainly be interested in any future updates that more closely approach the comprehensiveness of the hardcopy edition, I'm not disappointed with this product. In fact, I'm enjoying it quite a bit. If a reader is on the fence about this resource, I'd recommend talking to a Logos/Noet sales representative and trying it on a 30-day money-back guarantee. After nearly 20 years as a Logos/Faithlife customer, I've found them to be an honorable, no-hassle company at every turn.

    I ordered Britannica Noet on the original pre-pub over a year ago, and experienced the disastrous initial release when it was discovered that it was Comptons Encyclopedia, not Britannica. Faithlife had to step up and either refund or offer this current replacement "Britannica" version at no additional charge when it was completed. I decided to wait, realizing that based upon the number of projected articles, it was going to be an abridged version. I assumed incorrectly that the articles selected would be in depth/intact. Unfortunately, it is as Mr. Francis describes. Given the initial mistake, and an entire year, I did not expect primarily the summary half of the encyclopedia. I own the 15th edition and yearbooks, and the Noet version is a far cry from the complete set. It appears the large majority of articles are taken (almost verbatim) from the Micropedia (Ready Reference) summary section of the encyclopedia. The remaining selected portions from the Macropedia (Knowledge in Depth) have been edited, some severely. For example, the entry for Jesus Christ is much shorter than in my set, missing entire sections, including the detailed outline and all of the extensive bibliographic and source references. At my initial pre-pub sale price of $100, it is worth having due to the Logos links. However, at the current price, I would suggest a much less expensive subscription directly from Britannica. Simply import the material that one needs. Clearly, this version is NOT equivalent or a replacement for a recent print copy or the on-line version from the publisher. Britannica's power and distinction is largely derived from the Macropedia material. The Noet version is a disappointment, albeit better than nothing.
