Logos has finally managed to contract a new book from Oxford University Press, and one of the most wished for at that: The Jewish Study Bible.

This is great news!

Can we get it into production in 24 hours?

I have a general question...

Do books that go on early Pre-Pub go cheaper with academic price once they go on production?

Does that happen at all?

I'm in as well.  OUP has several study bibles.  I wonder if more are forth coming.

Logos wants everyone to know about this pre-pub:

You can also view more content of the Jewish Study Bible at the bookstore.

cheers!

I thought they wanted everyone to know about Virgil.  Wink

This is, indeed, a great development! Whether it contains the Tanakh translation or not, the study notes are quite worthwhile.

Here's hoping the New Oxford Annotated Bible and a number of other Oxford resources are on their way.

Thanks I am in too. I did however notice that in the overview  it says "The Jewish Study Bible uses the Jewish Publication Society TANAKH translation" and am wondering if that text is actually included? As we all know most of the study Bibles published by Logos come without the actual translation.

I see that the examples from the print edition include the text but that doesn't always mean the the Logos product will match it!

Yes, it seems to be included. See the sample here - http://www.amazon.com/Jewish-Study-Bible-Publication-Translation/dp/0195297512/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1364994955&sr=1-1&keywords=jewish+study+bible#reader_0195297512

Won't be happening anytime soon. I love my Olivetree on my iPad/iPhone, and i have numerous resources not available in Logos on them. And unless Logos Mac was completely rewritten not a chance I am going to give up the speed and stability of Accordance. Besides Accordance is working on the NIB while Logos can't get it in to production.

I wish there were a way to see the high resolution covers within Logos itself!

It isn't included. There is a clarification now on the product page "This resource does not include the Bible texts. The TANAKH is available separately and can be purchased here."

Like I said, just because things are included in the print version doesn't mean Logos will include them in the electronic version.

That is a good clarification. It is a bit misleading. I already have the digital version of the Tanakh but I'm not sure that this would be clear to others who are first considering a purchase.
