We're planning to cancel this Bible in 30 days if it doesn't get enough orders to go into production:

Although it is the most important book in the English-speaking world’s religious life and culture, the King James Bible (or Authorized Version of 1611) has never been as perfectly represented in print as the translators intended. Standard editions currently give, with little variation, the text as established by the Blayney edition of 1769. This leaves the reader with a seventeenth-century text in mid-eighteenth-century clothes—clothes neither original nor modern.

Edited by David Norton, The New Cambridge Paragraph Bible is an important scholarly edition that presents a revised KJV text based on a thorough evaluation of the textual variants present in current renderings. It includes the extant notes of the 1611 translators. The text itself is presented in paragraph form, with marginal notes, and it adopts modern spelling and punctuation conventions to make it easy to read and use.

Thanks for letting us know Ben.  But I was just wondering by having this resource on your website does this cost you money to keep it on there?

                Just wondering, not complaining

Folks,

Please order this resource. I've never begged about a resource before, but I am now. :)

The reason Ben provided in another thread is that these titles aren't "getting enough traction to ever make it into production."

Some of these titles have been listed on the store for years, and still show little interest in all that time. I think it has become an intangible cost, and FL is choosing to focus on resources that the market is much more interested in.

Apparently it adopts modern USA spelling and punctuation (according to comments on the order page)  which rather amuses me - and I think that Miles Smith would also see the funny side of that as well.

Cancel it ASAP, no need to wait 30 days. We have way better translations that have used better manuscripts to worry about adding this to our libraries.

Trust me, not having this will not affect anyone‘s salvation one bit. 👍😁👌

I think that a Bible translation, to get past Prepub at $8, would need to claim ‘the version to be used on judgment day’ (for judging the angels, of course).

Sadly, I know people who would probably disagree. Tongue Tied

Anyway, I imagine that cancelling this product might persuade people to place pre orders and CP on other products that therefore get more traction, and make it closer to the production threshold. So there's an implicit cost in keeping oodles and oodles of PP and CP that are actually already dead in the water. I can see how these kind of actions can really be heartbreaking for people who have been looking forward and praying for stuff to make it into production.

So, people, lets get on this Bible + get into production.

Thankful for Modern English Version (MEV) that is an updated KJV being in my Logos library (dreaming of Reverse Interlinear).

Thankful for pre-publication remaining available for nearly a year, albeit many more pre-orders are needed to provide resource development incentive.

+ KS4J:  Thanks for the MEV insight + sample.  I like it; it is very smooth.  I do not own it, but will add to my wish list.

What happened (or changed) that this offer is not cancelled given the notice last from Ben February that it would be in 30 days?  Looks like it has a long way to go still.

Please define "better manuscripts" - thanks.

I would also like to own an electronic copy of this in Logos. I think the footnotes and updates would be interesting.

Why is it available in Logos 8 packages, but still not released for those who got it in prepub?
