This has been a while. I had forgotten I ordered it when it was in CP.

This is one of those 'swahili' resources.

I took a look at my orders. I'm probably exaggerating (a lot), but pretty soon my 'pre-pub orders' will equal my library.

If I'd only known  about the 'swahili' principle.

On the one hand, I really wish 'in development' was indeed the correct description.

On the other, 'out of development' is really going to hit my piggy bank some day.

Hold it there, 'S' (Hotchkiss) .... NO ONE backs out of a Henry Alford. It's just not done on planet Earth.Smile

And besides, it's already 'In Development'.  If this were a LOGOS commercial book, that would mean many things 'We're imagining a contract' or 'We chatted with the publisher a couple of years back.' or something like that.

But this is an older book and that almost always means 'It IS in development!! We WILL get to use it!

By the way, Genesis that just moved out of CP had a Henry Alford too. He really gets around.

"God will save his fallen angels and their broken wings He'll mend."

I know this could get annoying if quoted too often, but the trusted Spurgeon says this in His Commenting and Commentaries:

"All critics speak of Alford with respect, though they consider that something better than his Greek Testament is still needed. He is, for the present at any rate, indispensable to the student of the original. With some faults he has surpassing excellencies. We specially commend 893 to the careful reading of young ministers."

(893 being How to Study the New Testament. Part 1, Gospels and Acts; Part 2, Epistles (first section); Part 3, Epistles (second section) and Revelation)

OK calm the excitement. The NT for English Reader is merely a condensation of the Greek Testament. So if you have the Greek Testament, the English edition will not offer any more info than what you already have. Simply put; minus the Greek content & you have the English edition.

So i have been made to understand by Logos but it will still be released.

Ted .... are you saying you have other Logos info on this resource?

When the greeky version came out, I skipped it since unlike George, I am not a greek expert.

This one though appears to be more usable, if I want a 'Henry' opinion (similar to my enjoyment of Bishop Westcott)

I am assuming the Logos version will still encompass:

"It is Alford's verse-by-verse commentary and lengthy book introductions that give this work its lasting appeal. The KJV text and margin notes will not be reproduced in the Logos edition, but the commentary and introductions will be included in their entirety.

In his commentary, Alford brought within reach of
English readers many findings of the German text critics, and introduced a wider audience to this new exegetical approach. His approach was marked by a shift from primarily theological, homiletic concerns to those of philology, historical studies, and text criticism."

"God will save his fallen angels and their broken wings He'll mend."

I also skipped the Greek version (mainly for cost reasons). So currently I have no Alford in my library.

The text of both editions is available online.  It's interesting to compare the two, as they are very much the same in places.  Here is the start of the commenary section on the Book of Hebrews in each edition:

I look forward to the release of this resource too.

Thanks Todd for posting a link to Alford for comparison. Though I have the Greek, I am still looking forward to when Alford English will ship. Hopefully soon & then i can give away my paper copy.
