Sorry about that ... we are just excited to see that it's coming.  Unfortunately, not fast enough.  Tongue Tied

Even though the translation is updated from the original 1966 Jerusalem Bible, the notes are well worth the modest price.

I thank you too... every little bit helps I am just amazed there hasn't been more traction, I suppose it is partly because most people have the translation already but for me the notes are as important as the translation and does amount to a fairly in depth one volume commentary.

It works for me because I don't have the NJB at all yet. It's not part of any base package and I haven't gotten around to picking it up. To get the translation and the notes is a pretty good deal. I hope it makes it out of pre-pub soon.

I already have the Bible, but I agree that the price is worth it for the notes. I have pre-ordered my copy as well. Looks to be about halfway to the production point.

I know there is a link to the other page up top but i thought I would provide the same from the other thread to give people a feel for what is in the notes compared to the rudimentary notes found in the readers edition.

Many of you may well have the readers edition of NJB in your Libraries but to give you an idea for those of you not familiar with it. Imagine the NIV Study Bible was published first and the the translation was excised out of it with the bare minimal notes.

This is the full text:

1 At many moments in the past and by many means, God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets; 2 but in our time, the final days, a he has spoken to us in the person of his Son, b whom he appointed heir of all things c and through whom he made the ages. d 3 He is the reflection of God’s glory and bears the impress of God’s own being, e sustaining all things by his powerful command; and now that he has purged sins away, he has taken his seat at the right hand of the divine Majesty on high. 4 So he is now as far above the angels as the title which he has inherited is higher than their own name. 

  a. In the fullness of time, Mk 1:15Ga 4:4c, the last times or the last days begin, Ac 2:171 P 1:20
  b. After the prophets, God sends an envoy who is no longer a mere messenger like the others; he is ‘Son’, cf. Mk 12:2-6Rm 1:4c, he is even the Word, Jn 1:1a14m
  c. To be a son implies having the right to inherit, cf. Mt 21:38Ga 4:7. Here, however, God is credited with the handing over of the whole creation because the inheritance in question is messianic and eschatological. 
  d. Hebraism for the whole of creation. 
  e. These two metaphors are borrowed from the sophia and logos theologies of Alexandria, Ws 7:25-26; they express both the identity of nature between Father and Son, and the distinction of persons. The Son is the brightness, the light shining from its source, which is the bright glory, see Ex 24:16f, of the Father (‘Light from Light’). He is also the replica, see Col 1:15d, of the Father’s substance, like an exact impression made by a seal on clay or wax, cf. Jn 14:9.

This is what the readers version we currently own in Logos provides:

1  At many moments in the past and by many means, God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets; but 2 in our time, the final days, he has spoken to us in the person of his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things and through whom he made the ages. 3 He is the reflection of God’s glory and bears the impress of God’s own being, *  sustaining all things by his powerful command; and now that he has purged sins away, he has taken his seat at the right hand of the divine Majesty on high. 4So he is now as far above the angels as the title which he has inherited is higher than their own name. 

* cf. Ws 7:25–26.

 The New Jerusalem Bible (New York: Doubleday, 1985), Heb 1:1–4.

This is an invaluable work that every scholar of the Bible should want in their library. For $15.99 it is one of the greatest bargains you will find in the Logos world. Please consider ordering it to help bring this work in it's  fullness to Logos.

Everybody is speaking about the notes but nobody mentions the references attached to the verses in the left or right margin. (See in the Print Edition snapshot.) These references lead you to other parts of the Bible which are in some way closely or loosely related to the original verse. It's a unique feature of the New Jerusalem Bible. It's just like the web in the internet. You can start from one verse and jump to one of it's references and from that you can go further.

Will this edition contain these references too, or it will contain only the (foot)Notes?

Welcome to the forums, Laszio.  Smile

You may also be interested in the New American Bible which also has this feature, although they are printed at the bottom in hardcopy editions they are hyper-linked in the Logos/Verbum edition.  And yes, it is a very helpful feature.  The referenced information to other parts of scripture in the NABRE in many cases is identical to the subject bible translation.

I would be very interest too if they are included... I would guess yes... but I am speculating... I hope a Logos individual can answer us for sure soon...

Sadly another product, which like the Catechism, is unavailable to anyone outside the US and Canada.

I hope it soon becomes another great resource for you.

It is a very sad thing since I believe the greater demand for this product might be outside of North America.... That said I can't believe it has not reached production levels yet, this is such an important work and generally it has had a wider interest than just catholics. Hey don't get me wrong I am very happy to have the NJB readers edition, but it is sort of like a hamburger without the bun and toppings yes you have the core but what is missing really makes the complete package so much better.
