I added my 3 votes, Steve.  As a non-Catholic, I will buy it to see opinions on verses I study.

Qualifying as non-Catholic will disappoint yourself. I saw little 'Catholic' in Jerome, usually a last sentence or so per article. It seemed odd (but explained by MJ). Mainly scholarly. Like buying a presumed jewish commentary, and getting a scholarly tome.  That sounds un-politic.

Thanks for the information, Denise.  I left my votes for this scholarly tome in place.

I have voted for this before, but it wouldn't matter if there were 10,000,000 votes unless things have changed PH has made it clear they do not want it in electronic format. It was the reason the old Jerome Bible had to be withdrawn. I do not understand it but if it is not being allowed by the publisher it will not happen.

Prentice-Hall was the publisher/right holders... Pearson does seem to be it now so maybe there is hope. Prentice-Hall is now and appears to have been in the past an imprint of Pearson so not sure if there is any real change.
