Can anyone comment on the prospects for the above work in Logos? This would be a great enhancement to entice more UK business as well as having appeal for lecturers/instructors who may influence potential customers in training (who will then be an influence on a broader base).

Thank you.

I would see it as unlikely that it will be released as a pre-pub. Logos waited quite a while with the Revised English Bible which is from the same period and in UK English. Now most Bible Study softwares seem to have the REB. Accordance has had the REB for quite a while.

I would rather see the 2004 Good News Translation UK-English Edition and the original 1966 Jerusalem Bible Reader's Edition. You can see the links to the suggestion -threads if You click on my avatar, please post there!

I use the NRSV only little. I have the RSV 2nd Edition New Testament as printed matter, paperback, it's one of my preferred New Testaments. (The "Protestant Edition" from 1971. Not the Catholic one which is based on the 1946 Edition.) Although I'm not an interlinear-fan I also have a pre-pub order for the Reverse Interlinear: Reverse Interlinear of RSV New Testament, just because I want to have maximum possibilities to compare different English Bible versions. I don't use it to "understand" Gk.

I just ordered a NRSV Anglicised NT and a James Moffatt New Testament (the RSV resembles the latter more than it resembles the Blayney revision of the KJV, source: http://www.bible-researcher.com/rsv.html). I will be very cautious when I compare the RSV NT with the NRSV NT.

It is my primary Bible and the anglicized edition is what is in my Oxford reference edition has (

New Revised Standard Version Cross Reference Edition (Anglicized Text)

). Looks like Oxford has let this go out of print, a real shame since it is the only decent cross reference edition that was made. Yes baker still has the one but that one is the edition done originally by Zondervan and the Bible never offered references to the apocryphal books meaning it was less that ideal.

http://bible.oremus.org I meant to mention it is here so an electronic copy should;t be too hard to come by if logos ever decided to do it.
