I would appreciate you producing the International Children's Bible for Logos 4.  My daughter uses it in our family devotions and I've looked up passages myself to compare with other translations.  Thank you!

The New Century Version is the latest revision of what was called the International Children's Bible (http://www.bible-researcher.com/ncv.html).  Perhaps the NCV will meet your needs.  You probably already have it: it is included in most base packages.

Thanks for the link.  It makes sense to me now.  The key is, as you so aptly put it, "latest revision." 

I looked up ICB at Amazon and the compared the text in the "Look Inside" feature with my Logos NCV and they were identical.  HOWEVER, comparing that with my daughter's ICB Princess Bible, it was bit different - in some places more than others.  According to your link, the ICB and NCV are now one and the same, yet EARLIER EDITIONS of the IBC are different. 

Since Logos excels in language tools and Bible version comparisons, why not offer the ICB86; i.e. 1986 edition?  Their NIV84 is specifically the 1984 edition.  There is possibly as less a variance between other older and classic versions, especially in certain verses; e.g. AV, NKJV, ASV, RSV, YLT, etc.  Food for thought.

Although there is an obvious family resemblance between the NCV and ICB, the ICB is much better for children, largely through its consistent use of short sentences. There are also significant differences in the text. Take this example (Romans 3:21-25). As a consequence, I'd love to have the ICV in Logos, too.

NCV

But God has a way to make people right with him without the law, and he has now shown us that way which the law and the prophets told us about. God makes people right with himself through their faith in Jesus Christ. This is true for all who believe in Christ, because all people are the same: Everyone has sinned and fallen short of God’s glorious standard, and all need to be made right with God by his grace, which is a free gift. They need to be made free from sin through Jesus Christ. God sent him to die in our place to take away our sins. We receive forgiveness through faith in the blood of Jesus’ death. This showed that God always does what is right and fair, as in the past when he was patient and did not punish people for their sins.

Just a bit of education for some. The US children's lectionary uses the CEV.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
