Seeing as the the BigRead have nominated Stephen Cherry's 'Barefoot Prayers' for their project this year. There is an urgent need to get this into the Logos stable quite quickly.

Any chance?

You already have, or can quickly obtain, the GNT.  Why not make that your project?  I used to participate in a Lenten Greek Reading project, but stopped due to some surgery which made it difficult to participate and then never picked it up again.  One group I was with read the entire NT during Lent.  That was quite a project—about 7 chapters of Greek per day in addition to any other reading.  I would suggest something a bit less ambitious such as a gospel.

Wow - if I suggested to the dozen or so faithful attendees at the evening service that they had to move from the NIV to a bible written in Greek there would be zero or so faithful attendees at the evening service during lent.

Plus I would have to learn greek prior to lent :-(

Give yourself the evening off during Lent.  Wink

Thank you Ben.

I imagine that by the nature of the book it would make quite a good candidate for Vyrso as I doubt their will be many 'Scholarly' references in it.

Yeah, I'm really hoping for that. I'm planning some extra promotion to try and get the book into production ASAP.  

If you or anyone you know has a Twitter or FB account that they could promote it on that would make it go over all that much faster.  Smile

Thanks for this, Mike.  This book is so close to going over.  If anyone else can give it a bump on their social media I would really appreciate it. Smile

Also, if you haven't placed a pre-order, now is the time!  Join BigRead14 on the journey through Lent guided by the reflections in the devotional.
