The first to release the New Interpreter's Bible Commentary

 

We promised page numbers for the NIB-OT and we released that update yesterday.

We promised the NIB-NT and will release it with page numbers later today. It will appear in your Easy Install if you have purchased the set.

Thank you very much it is fantastic to have the complete set finally. The one smallest of flaws... and one so minor that I can easily live with, but I thought I would inquire about. In Volume 12 of the print edition has several colour plates after the Outline for Revelation. 

 

ART INSPIRED BY REVELATION
 
The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse
Albert Dürer (1471-1528)
 
Death on a Pale Horse
William Blake (1757-1827)
 
Death on a Pale Horse
J. M. W. Turner (1775-1851)
 
 
The Fifth Seal Vision: The Souls of the Martyrs Under the Altar
The Douce Apocalypse (13th Century)
 
Le Sommeil des Justes (The Sleep of the Righteous)
Angers Tapestry (14th Century)
 
The Angel Standing in the Sun
J. M. W. Turner (1775-1851)
 
The Last Judgement
William Blake (1757-1827)
 
"America, a Prophecy." Copy A. Bently 1/ Frontispiece
William Blake (1757-1827)
 
I was just curious if this omission was permanent or an oversight?

PS: Thanks once again for getting this out..

Thanks!

 

Why is the name of the OT module not NIB-OT?

I cannot speak for your set up but NIB-OT and NIB-NT are how they appear on my MacBook and on my iPad.

I had deleted the OT part that was released in May from the Library.

After Easy Install the old name for the OT part still appears.

I have tried again (deleted the whole set from the Library and force a new Easy Install). No change in the name of the OT part....

Please note I believe there will never be a single NIB in the same way we have EBC-R Accordance choose to make it 2 distinct files. I had thought you had meant why is the New Interpreter's Bible OT file not named constantly with the NT file.

Because of the size of the files, there are separate modules for OT and NT. If you purchased the 12-volume set (NIB-12volume), it will show up in your library as NIB-OT and NIB-NT.

Just to play devils advocate.....

 

WBC-OT.atool = 151.4 MB

NIB-OT.atool = 87.9 MB
NIB-NT.atool = 56.3 MB
 
So size seemingly should not have been an issue... but this way has it benefits too... People with limited space on a device can choose to install only what is absolutely needed for them....

Not in my library. NIB-NT yes, but not NIB-OT (still the old, long name)

My mistake. The module names are NIB-OT and NIB-NT. However, the title (how it shows in the Library) of the OT module is the long version (New Interpreter's Bible OT & Apocrypha) while the title of the NT module is NIB-NT.

Dan, Julie is correct that we divided NIB into two modules because it was too large for a single module. But the largeness has to do not with file size, but with the amount of text and number of paragraphs. Once we determine that a commentary is too big for a single module, we try to divide it into logical subdivisions, such as OT & NT. The divided modules may then each be well below the limit.

 

Hans, the Library name of the NIB-NT module should read "New Interpreter's Bible NT," which is consistent with the Library name of NIB-OT. I failed to notice when checking the NIB-NT module that the Library name was not showing up properly. We'll get that fixed in a future update.

We promised page numbers for the NIB-OT and we released that update yesterday.

We promised the NIB-NT and will release it with page numbers later today. It will appear in your Easy Install if you have purchased the set.

 

Thanks.  Your efforts to be the first to release had me buying the NIB here.
