John Fidel:

Kyle,

I think the OT version is in pre pub. Can you state whether the same problem will be present when it is released or will they be properly formatted?

That would be pretty helpful to know - probably the main deciding factor on whether I keep it in my prepub or not.

No. We'll adjust the print formatting so it's more readable in the digital format.

If that is the case - then it looks like a keeper.  Thanks for the response.

I just got this set in a recent purchase and noticed the same awful formatting. I am glad something is being done.....is there a time frame for when we will see it fixed?

Thanks for your patience everyone.

We have an update to these volumes ready to go. It will be pushed out on July 23. It should make things much easier to read.

I appreciate this!

I was wondering with the OT Illustrator community bidding almost complete! Looking forward to the newer formatting.

Just so I can set some expectations ahead of time. There will be some differences between the Old Testament and New Testament formatting.

New Testament

Due to some constraints of updating a published resource as opposed to starting from scratch the paragraph divisions will occur in three primary places:

  • New verse range indicators
  • Verse range sub-topics. (These are marked off by italics in the text)
  • Roman Numeral and Small Caps divisions.

There are still a few longer paragraphs but overall the paragraph lengths are about the same size as a modern commentary. The textual formatting should make it easy for a reader to skim the content.

Old Testament

Once this goes into production we'll have the luxury of starting from scratch. This will allow us to do additional formatting for sub-points within the Roman Numeral division.

This is exciting!  Thx Kyle.  I've stayed away from this series because it gave me a headache trying to read it.  It may find some use now :)

PS I noticed the OT went into production as well so even better!

Looks much better now.  A lot easier to read.

Thank you.

👍🏽👍🏽 This makes a world of difference!! The resource is much more readable. This is great, particularly because the series is part of numerous base packages and Lots of customers have now acquired this resource.

It’s amazing to me how important formatting is to making a text more easily read. It’s one of the reasons I love my single column, paragraph-formatted physical bible. 

Thanks FL for the effort put forth. I’m looking forward to the OT addition
