Olive Tree has just released the New English Translation of the Septuagint. When is Logos going to get it?

Rob Lloyd:

I'd like to add my vote for NETS, especially with a reverse interlinear.

 

Realizing that it isn't the same as having a Logos edition, you can download PDF files of the translation which might serve temporarily here

George!   *smile*

Thank you for that link!  It's a great site and will be of significance to me until Logos has it in our preferred format - the Logos Edition!

Peace!     And Joy, George!

Big "Bump!"           *smile*                                                                                          Peace and Joy to all!

Philippians 4:  4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. 5 Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand..........

I just noticed this as well.

NETS is a glaring omission from Logos' resource library. Here's hoping it's coming soon.

I've had NETS on BibleReader since maybe 2007 or so. I wonder what the new OliveTree release is?

Years, not months, are passing.   Still not NETS on Logos?

I think there's some confusion with Logos strategic plans. NETS isn't yet public domain.  Brenton anyone?

Does anyone else find it ironic that the free book of the month – Jesus and Scripture by Steve Moyise – mentions NETS as part of the introduction and Logos STILL doesn't have this resource?!

Perhaps in this way Logos is testing how much interest there is for the Bible. I have it in Accordance since a year, would not have waited for it to become available in Logos. Certainly many would have promoted it, but it could still be lingering in pre-pub even if it would have been introduced in Logos a year ago. Logos has to choose which Bible versions to introduce. I would like to see: the 2004 Good News Translation 3rd Edition UK-English:

I could be - but it is one I would expect to make itthrough pre-pub very quickly.

I doubt most people have ever heard of it. And when someone has not previously heard of a specific Bible version ..., well then they are unlikely to place an order. But I expect most academics are aware of this Bible version:

Logos pretty rarely introduces modern Bible versions which are not intended to be included in all or all the higher base-packages. See for example the Revised English Bible.


True, NETS has a niche.

I suspect it would be more than a niche—perhaps a crevasse.  Wink

I would expect the situation to be different outside English-speaking countries, but here there has been a growing interest in the LXX - see The Apocrypha: The Lutheran Edition with Notes by Edward A. Engelbrecht and The First Bible of the Church: A Plea for the Septuagint by Mogens Muller. And with it being basic to the canonical declarations of Anglicans, Lutherans, Catholics, Eastern Orthodox and Oriental Orthodox, the LXX is broadly known, if not by name. Since there has been no recent (decent) translation available in English for many years, I suspect there is significant pent-up demand.

True, but it will still drown among the 10,000 new books Logos aims to release annually.

Neither you nor I have a crystal ball. However, I have given solid reasons for my opinion - which time will prove to be right or wrong. Perhaps, if Logos delays until some of the Orthodox LXX translations are complete, you will be proven right as customers will have more choice.

I'm not trying to argue or say that You are not right, but ...
What I mean is that there can't be many who keep updated about every new release of every kind of book, and the average user is far from updated.
Being updated means having to look for or read posts about printed matter books that are released and what is released in other Bible Study software, in addition to what is first released in Logos (before, or if it ever, becomes available as printed matter). Today's users are interested almost solely in books licensed in Bible Study software and will not make twice the effort to watch several frontiers.
Logos can also market a new pre-pub, but they can as well market almost any of the other offers.

A Bible is a fairly expensive project and won't satisfy everyone no matter how good it is. The largest share of sales go to a few Bible versions mostly because they are (internationally) well-known.

My experience is that people learn about books primarily through word of mouth or by other books referencing them. Some people read reviews but there is no New York Times Book Review section for religious studies.Crying

http://www.bookreviews.org/, founded by SBL has academic reviews of books, but covers far from everything and it's a hit-and-miss what they include. The reviews are usually not written to be glanced in a few seconds, so the site is mostly helpful only when You've found a book and are already considering it and want to see what flaws and approaches it has. And I have not checked whether there is a way to view the most recently posted reviews.

I guess that where the pay-check to a professional reviewer in a NYT manner would come from would be an issue. Should several Bible Study software companies perhaps collaborate on funding her/him?
