I would sure love to see this 3 vol. set in Logos. Though the thought of the price leaves me wary. I'm currently not in a position to even buy a used print version.Sad

D. de Silva has commended it to anyone interested in Second Temple Jewish literature saying it is heavily annotated and commented on after the manner of a study Bible.

When I first saw the name I thought, why do we need another translation of the APOCRYPHA/PSEUDEPIGRAPHA, but seeing the scope of this work combined with it being fully annotated makes this a resource that would be hard to pass up. I hope Faithlife can get it ASAP.

I'd be interested! This is a one stop for the apocrypha, Josephus, Philo, and Psuedopigrapha. It also has a selection from the dead sea scrolls. 

All with commentary as well. A single resource for ancient Jewish writings and commentary! Looks great for studying the context of Scripture!

It appears that I already have all, or at least most, of what is included here.

You mean you have all or most already in Logos in different resources?

The authors look outstanding.  If Logos had it, I'd probably get it for the translations.   That said, I haven't seen anything that describes what's specifically  included.  The Amazon page hints at the TOC but no click-thru's.  Truly breathtaking.

While we're getting excited, I noticed another book that came out in July that looks good (mainly Bock; I'm a little burned out on Charlesworth's speculative habits):

I'll probably wait to see if there's a Kindle version.

There is a brief sample available at the Nebraska University at Lincoln print partnership site.
