I'll add why I think it is important. For 1500 years there were major Christian groups that didn't know the other existed. In our global world, we have Christian groups from all over the world popping up in our own neighborhoods - Armenians, Goans, Ethiopians. Anyone working in evangelization, ecumenicism, theology, inculturation, international aid, etc. need a working knowledge of the entire church. By providing basic resources of the Church of the East and Orthodox threads of Christianity, Logos can fill a serious gap in Bible software.

Agreed, such translations are important. Amharic is important for other reasons as well, not the least of which is its relationship to Classical Ethiopic (Ge'ez) which has import in the area of textual criticism. Are you looking for a modern Amharic Bible, or for the older editions that have proved so useful in matters of textual criticism?

[Having duly hijacked the thread, he proceeds to his additional point]

So one way we (Logos) can proceed with such things is to know we cover costs. You know, the pre-pub program ( http://www.logos.com/prepub ).  We've had the Sahidica Coptic Collection (the Sahidic dialect of Coptic is very important for textual criticism of the New Testament and also the Hebrew Bible) on prepub for awhile. It is languishing, though. Oh-so-close to the line, but not over yet. Check it out, you might just be interested:

If we can get the Sahidica collection over the line and into development then other classical editions (such as Ge'ez, classical Ethiopic and perhaps Bohairic Coptic) make sense to consider as well.

[You may now return to your normal Amharic Bible thread; hopefully I've done Philip Spitzer proud]

I am very greatful to hear a constructive and a good response, I mean the modern Amharic bible ,the new Amharic bible (fwww.biblica.com/bibles/amharic/index.php) and the Haile Selassie Amharic bible( http://bible.org/foreign/amharic/ ) which are mentioned ,Thes bibles are used by evangelical Chrsitians ,but appart of these bibles are only used by the Orthodox ,Tewahdo ,and Geez we do not understand it .this is used by Orthodox .So my suggerstions are the bibles which are mentioned on the web.

God bless you!

Blessings in Christ.

Would someone who knows the text and its significance better than me (Rick?) do a "Here's why it would be great if you would buy the Gottingen Septuagint" post here on forums?

This sort of post really seem to affect the pre-pub sales.

If you've checked the pre-pub page lately, you've seen that the Sahidica Coptic Collection is now "Under Development".

This thread is 10 years old, but Tes helpfully distinguishes Amheric from Ge'ez, for those not familiar.

For those in the text criticism world, A-Company now has a Ge'ez version, and on sale thru June 29. Don't know if it'd be your preference (late 1800s - early 1900s). I screen copied the 3 included texts below.

I assume a digital means a future in Logos.

Logos does have grammar in CP (though stalled, and carefully avoids saying which language):

Ge'ez Resources:

1.  The classical set of books:

2. The canonical set:

3. The pseudepigrapha (Jubilees and Enoch 1)

The link appears to be broken.

Beloved ... as noted above, it's an old thread ... Coptic's no longer prepub. But maybe a sale!

I wish we can get (Ethiopic (Ge’ez) Bible (Mahibere Hawaiyat Edition) here too. 

Here is the description under it:

"This Ethiopic Bible ..... represents the Modern Textus Receptus form of the Ethiopic Bible (19th-20th century), known in Ethiopia as the Mahibere Hawariyat edition, based on the manuscript IES 77, and transcribed by the Capuchin Franciscan Research and Retreat Center (CFRRC) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, under the direction of Abba Dr. Daniel Assefa, and in coordination with Dr. Steve Delamarter (George Fox University).

For a detailed description and history of the Ethiopic Bible, see this PDF article by Steve Delamarter, director of the Ethiopic Manuscript Imaging Project, director (with Curt Niccum) of the Textual History of the Ethiopic Old Testament Project, and director of The Social Lives of the Ethiopian Psalter Project."

I also echo this request.
