Maybe I'm mixing techs here, but has anyone made plans to print the Lexham English Bible?

Although my "Church Bible" is my iPad with Logos, I could have possible interest in a hard-copy Lexham.

I don't know if they've made any plans to, but they haven't thus far. They have done print editions on rare occasions in the past, e.g., Steven Runge's Discourse Grammar of the Greek New Testament. Actually, that was published by Hendrickson, so maybe they'd have to partner with a print-based publisher to do it. But I agree they should do a print edition of the LEB. Hard cover. I think it would make a great pew Bible!

Agreed, Rosie--it would make a great pew Bible.

My Church normally uses the NASB95, but I can see where the Lexham has the things I like about the NASB95 (closer to the literal end of the spectrum, italicized added words, etc) and eliminates the things I don't like (uses "Yahweh" instead of "LORD", doesn't make an interpretive judgment on pronouns of "He" vs. "he" where it is ambiguous, tends to be even more literal than NASB95, doesn't change fonts for quotes from the OT, etc).  Indeed, I think the Lexam is arguably better at being what people look for in the NASB95 than the NASB95 itself is.  YMMV, of course.

Perera, what do You think as an Anabaptist about the Lexham English Bible version? (Another question while I'm at it: was the Anabaptist and Mennonite Studies Collection (16 vols.) originally rolled out in CP? (Just worried that I missed it back then, have put in pre-pub order on Sept. 24. 2012.))

I would love to see a printed version of the Lexham Bible.  I always like to refer to a more  literal version when studying and that was always  the NASB, but I find the Lexham much better. I also think the use of Yahweh makes parts of the OT read much better and I wish other versions had adopted this practice.

Although it is promoted as a "second bible", I think it could be useful in church for detailed exposition of the text.

I too would love a printed copy of the Lexham English Bible because right at the moment, while trying to get through seminary, I am working at a job in which they do not allow you to bring any electronics whatsoever, and if you are caught with any, they fire you, no questions asked.

Wow, that's pretty harsh, but I sure wouldn't want to take any risks!

Hi Unix, I didn't notice your question to me about this until just now. Sorry about that.

I didn't grow up Anabaptist so I'm pretty progressive-evangelical in my preferences for Bible translations. I like the TNIV best, personally. I am most familiar with the NIV84 but I like the changes that were made for the TNIV so I'm using that as my preferred Bible now ( two of my professors at Regent were on the translation committee, and I trust their faithfulness to the original languages and to the Spirit's leading). At my Mennonite church we use the NRSV which is OK. I don't know whether being Anabaptist influences one's choice of Bible translation. I'd have to ask some of my Anabaptist/Mennonite friends who might have thought through that more than I have. I'm not very familiar with the Lexham English Bible yet.

No, the Anabaptist and Mennonite Studies Collection was not originally in CP as far as I know. Those are all recently published books, and such are not normally offered for sale in CP. What was in CP was the Classic Anabaptist and Mennonite History Collection (19 vols.), which I got for $20.

If you are interested in Anabaptist studies, you might also be interested in the John Howard Yoder Collection (12 vols.). I've pre-ordered that. I wish it had his most well-known work The Politics of Jesus. I'm not sure why that's not included. But it still looks like some good stuff. It's shipping later this month.

I'd like to add to this - My wife and I were looking at bibles yesterday, and for our interests, we like the NASB95, but find it to be wooden and stilted.  The closest alternative in print is the ESV, but after examing some key passages, we were pleased with the way that some passages are translated according to theology.  I then considered the NET bible because I had seen high praise of it online, but after examing it found it to be, in my opinion, far inferior to the ESV (or even HCSB) ... 

So - what a conundrum - we'd like to have something like the NASB that is more readable, that flows better.... and the Lexham is a great alternative!  

I'm considering printing and binding it myself for my own personal use (I believe the license is fairly liberal in this regard).  

Has anyone else done that?  

Warm regards,

Brian

I remember I did that but NT only on the NASB spanish version (LBLA).  The purpose was to have a wide margin to insert notes.  I put it in a binder, but then it was too cumbersome to be carrying it around (after notes, sermon outline inserts, charts, etc.).  Then, alas! I decided to get an iPad and use the note files on Logos and now that's how I do my notes on key verses of the Bible.  I just wish the word processor on the note files was more versatile to be able to outline in the same way you do Word documents.  But hey, you can try it, it's gonna be a lot of paper though.

Blessings!

I just download the ePub version and used Calibre to convert it to HTML, and then imported that into Microsoft Word. At 6"x9" without footnotes (standard trade book), it comes in at 1,050 pages. Even in letter size with two or three columns it's 589 pages. You could get that printed and bound at lulu.com for $21 plus shipping.

I too would be interest in a printed LEB. I'd like one with the think paper and leathery binding though (like my other bibles), which they won't do at lulu.com

I know that this is an old post on the Logos forums, but would you please send me a copy of the Word document that you have created?  This would be great to have and publish at lulu.com as you have suggested.

Hello Mark,

Are you able to share your MS Word version of the Lexham English Bible?

Thanks,

Bob

Bump. I know this thread is old, but I was wondering if there was any update on an official dead tree copy from Faithlife. I found a statement saying, "We're working on a print edition," but I believe that has been there for a while. http://lexhamenglishbible.com/license/

Did you ever get the Word document? I would love it as well as I've tried to do it myself but would greatly appreciate it if someone can share it!
