Bible Translation Magazine seems like a great deal.  Two years worth of issues and over 3500 pages dealing with the text of the Bible and its history as well as translation matters according to the description and all that for only $17.95!  Does anyone have any comments on this offering?  The link is below:

Not familiar  with it, but looking as the preview, it seems pretty good especially for the price.

Written in an easy to read format, definitely a good introduction to textual criticism. I ordered it.

Lynden,

I believe I found the website.  This is apparently an online journal.  The link is below:

http://bible-translation.net/

According to the video on the main page the journal's target audience is the non-scholar using the English Bible who wants a deeper understanding of how to interpret the Bible correctly and the important issues (i.e. archaeology, textual criticism, translation, book reviews) that should accompany that desire.  It looks great for incorporating into Bible studies.

You can get single issues through the Kindle app on Amazon. I bought an issue earlier this year. It was OK, but I didn't like enough to subscribe. In fact, I took the pre-order you're referring to off my Wish List.

Not saying it's a bad magazine... just personally found it a bit of a boring read. With so many books in my Logos library that I want to get to, I'm getting a little pickier about what I spend my reading time with, not to mention my book budget.

But with individual issues available on Amazon, it's easy to buy one and see if it fits what you're looking for.
