David Paul:

Ha...I was about to come on here and say that I had started a thread some time back about getting Alter in Logos...and here it is! Still interested, even though I already bought HC version of Alter's volume on the Wisdom Books

Nick Steffen:
This would be phenomenal to get in Logos, and I do hope that talks have already started to facilitate this process.

Totally agree about getting the whole enchilada in Logos...this iron should already be in the fire. In the last year, I've bought at least $1000 worth of hard copy books for stuff not available in Logos. Hope this isn't added to that list.

Well, even NY Times seems impressed. Maybe that'll help out Bellingham HQ.

Interesting, they also discuss the KJV ... nicely worded but no appreciation for hebrew.

Well deserved admiration. I’m looking forward to seeing this resource in Logos.

Yes

Robert Alter's translation is always worth a look, even if not totally relied on.

I'm hopeful we'll see this in Logos before I have to break down and grab it in that best-known e-book format!

I realize I'm the one who started this thread, but after having just clicked the link above and read the first few lines of the WSJ article (probably all I'm ever going to read of it), I think my appetite is entirely gone. There is ZERO reason to translate b'rei'shiytth as "When...". This is utter nonsense. If I wasn't so accustomed to disappointment, I would be disappointed. Rather, I'm just "meh" on the verge of disgust.

i suggest you read the introduction of published translations (individual books as well as the Torah) first, he talks about how he translates differently...and he does it significantly differently than other English translations that i would not mind a little difference as "when"

Please see my recent post with plea for votes on all of Alter's books which I've now added individually on UserVoice. Follow the links from there to go vote for all of them.
