I show only 100 pages difference- so the question is how much has the content been revised, and what is the scope of the "expanded" area- quantity? quality? etc.

This seems like all there is.  Insufficient for me.  It'll be a bummer if future Mobile Ed courses use edition 2, + fail to mention the first edition, as well, in the Readings.

Thanks, Jan.

Reading the preface in Amazon, Boice revised/expanded it. There is no description of the state of the manuscript when he died nor an explanation of the delay in printing.

Thanks, MJ.  Best I leave it be.

These type of offerings always make look then not get- it seems offering a comparison sampling of significant portions would be the key to selling the "new" version and showing why the additional $30 will be well spent.

But alas maybe I expect to much.
