MJ. Smith:
I would expect there to be legal contractual difficulties in changing the order of a resource. 


You mean like how the Hollywood studios hated Clearplay for allowing users to automatically mute bad language and skip over pornographic senses, etc. so that parents could play clean versions of films for their children?

Seriously though, if we've bought a bible, why should the publishers dictate which order we read it in? *boggles my mind*

As I said we can read it in any order; Faithlife simply has to faithfully represent the book which is why they need publisher permission to correct typos that occur in the printed text for which Faithlife bought the rights. Think of it ... we might have Luther rearranging the NT againStick out tongue

Hmmm. Well we definitely wouldn't want to remove books like Luther wanted with James or like what Marcion did....

Correction of a very common misconception. Luther did not remove books although he considered it briefly - he moved books.
