Thank you, also Dave, for the clarification. The OLB version of BDB does 
exist, but fortunately it does not seem to have been distributed by 
Logos. The Whittaker abridgement is indeed much better.

I wonder why Sword has locked the OLB version? Perhaps because the OLB 
people object? It is still available from the OLB site (although now not 
identified as BDB) but only in OLB format.
