Can someone please explain the difference between the Navarre Bible New Testament, Standard Edition http://www.logos.com/product/20449/navarre-bible-new-testament-standard-edition and the Navarre Bible: New Testament http://www.logos.com/product/20446/the-navarre-bible-new-testament

Is the Navarre Bible: New Testament an abridge edition of the standard edition? Thanks

If I am mapping them correctly to the paper versions, the standard edition includes the Vulgate text.

Have you ever seen a 1200 page NT? Because that's how much the difference is. Wink

Thanks MJ for your input, though I am still not clear on the content of the different editions. I am in on both editions & wondering if I was basically purchasing the same material. If the Vulgate text is the only distinguishing factor, then I should make a cancellation of the more expensive edition. Any thoughts on this?

Let's drop Andrew a line to double check. The web pages really ought to tell the customer what the difference is.

Edit: I've sent him a message and asked for clarification in this thread and on the web pages.

I actually did, just after my post, but I'm afraid I was too tired/lazy to get back and say so. Sorry.

Hello everyone. The Navarre Bible New Testament is actually a new commentary. It's preface states: "The present volume does not replace the twelve New Testament volumes. Its commentary is different, although it overlaps with theirs to a degree; it often draws on the Catechism of the Catholic Church (which they do not); it is also shorter, but it covers the biblical text passage by passage." I have not compared them side by side, but my understanding is that the "New Testament" has less emphasis on the writings of St. Josemaria Escriva. Sometimes the "New Testament" is referred to as the "Expanded Edition." This is very confusing because it is shorter than the "Standard Edition." It is expanded, rather, from the "Compact Edition." None of Logos's Navarre Bibles will include the Biblical texts themselves, as these are available separately. I hope this helps.

Thanks, Andrew. Could we get some scanned pages to preview? The same pericopes for both resources, please, so that we can compare. And try to choose something that's got a reasonably 'typical' amount of Escrivá.

It  has been demanded numerous times.

2 weeks and it's already "forever"? How fast does it have to move for you to be satisfied?

Logos' Catholic user base is still fairly limited compared to the Evangelical, most of them are fairly new so it takes time to get the word out, and these are fairly expensive resources that not everyone can afford, no matter how much they want them. Add to that the fact that a large number of very fundamental Catholic resources has just shipped or are on the way (Catechism, Encyclicals, Canon Law, Missals...) and it's probably a safe bet that many's wallets are pretty strained.

It'll get there. Don't worry.
