I own Verbum 8 Gold and was hoping to read a passage from Sirach in the GNB but when I searched my library all I could find was  GNB with no Apocrypha. I at first thought oh is this another case of thinking a book was included but being mistaken. Then I went to the website and confirmed it is part of the collection. So my question is why is it not in my FL library?

Never mind I did find it HOWEVER standard abbreviation of TEV or GNB would be nice to add to the translation for easier access..

GOOD NEWS TRANSLATION, SECOND EDITION.  Formerly known as Good News Bible in Today’s English Version

GNB and TEV  find   GOOD NEWS BIBLE/ GNB  When what is desired is Good New Translation with apocrypha

I don’t recall how to do it but there is a way to add your own short name [[Maybe GNTA or GNB2]]

GNT works for tracking it down in the library but it is not an abbreviation I am use to. Indeed  in my mind GNT=Greek New Testament. True enough Biblegateway does use GNT as is proper but the iOS app version still calls it Good News Bible. As does Olivetrees version. And TEV GNB still brings up the protestant edition In the Library.

Through the information panel - library version is what I use but I believe it works if you open from the resource.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
