This is the translation done by John Goldingay (OT) and Tom Wright (NT) in their "...For Everyone" series of commentaries, all pulled together in one place. Would be nice to have in Logos just for convenience.

I've created a UserVoice suggestion for it:

Did put my votes in but while realize where the name cam from (the for everyone commentary series) the lack of an Apocrypha makes me feel better titled for every protestant

Thank you, Rosie.  My order is in.

And yes, that was fast.  I started to add my votes then realized it had already moved to pre-pub.

Hah! I just saw the title on prepub and said to myself, “Look! That book has the same title Rosie suggested the other day.” When I clicked on it, it wasn’t just a book, it was the fresh Bible translation by Wright and Goldingay — so I placed my order 👍😁👌

Ps. One of my suggestions took forever to come to Logos but it eventually did and is now in my library.  So I guess the slogan is true  — “The power of suggestion.” (echo...echo...echo...).

Awesome!  I have also ordered it.

Also ordered. 

I saw this earlier this week from Inter Varsity Press. Scot McKnight is going to do a transition of the NT, as they say,

Scot McKnight, renowned scholar, speaker, and award-winning author, has inked a book contract with IVP Academic for a fresh translation of the New Testament.

Tentatively titled The Second Testament, this volume follows on the heels of John Goldingay’s The First Testament: A New Translation, published by IVP earlier this year.
