Hope all is going well here... Glad you managed to get the NIB out first... Just saw over in L world that they hope to have it released in August... but their track record on release dates could mean years end. Can't wait to get the NT... But I have promised myself not to enquire about progress before end of June. Although I know the answer is it will get released as soon as it is done...

It is coming along nicely, and will definitely be done before August.

I was a bit surprised when I noticed over 1100 views have happened on this little thread. And now that we have reached the end of June, I decided I would ask for myself (and the curious) if you have a rougher idea when the NT will be out? Although definitely within 31 days is fairly tight timeline, I am just an anxious soul...   :unsure:

While it is no longer true that Accordance is the only ones with the four NIB products (since a competing software just released the reordered commentary in 10 volumes verses the classic 12 volumes )... I dare say you are the ones with the best implementation of the four.... Thanks again, including for the sale you had on the NIB 12 volumes a couple weeks back. I use these works daily in Accordance. And hope others fine them as much a blessing.

The product page for the New Interpreter's Bible 12-Volume Commentary starts with "The New Interpreter's® Bible offers critically sound biblical interpretations for the 1990s and beyond." That makes it look dated.

Wait, there was a sale recently? I've had this on my wishlist for months, why was I not notified?

I got the New Interpreter's Bible 12-Volume Commentary a few weeks ago with the Pick One 25% discount after checking with Dan about the pricing history of this product. It is a great resource.

 

Shalom,

Sorry I think I was wrong there, about a sale. I knew of a couple buying the NIB with the 25% off coupon which made me think it had been discounted recently. THAT IS MY BAD. I also should note I personally have not seen the competitors implementation. But they have no citation options and not much in more than basic search options. I can see how the 90s and beyond may seem dated to some but few would think of the NIC or WBC as dated with volumes far older.

On the theme of dated resources, I am always amused by new resources that basically cite and summarize the old resources, but are promoted as the newest and greatest--this happens in many fields. I am not opposed to resources that are review articles as they are a definite aid in grasping the state of knowledge in a field which is not familiar to the reader. I also acknowledge that most of my academic writing has been review articles. I am at a stage of life in which I seek to understand how ideas have originated, morphed, and become a reflection of the wisdom of the age in which the writer lived. Alistair, this quest for understanding the writing in the context of the era in which it was written began when I ran across an old commentary on the bookshelf at my first place of employment in the early 1970's. Of course the first volume I picked up was the one featuring Revelation and I began reading to whom the writer claimed the usual cast of characters referred. The most famous symbol was assigned to Kaiser Wilhelm, and the other cast members were assigned to political and military leaders during the time of First World War. The commentary was published in 1917. I recognized the problem the writer made and I became sensitized to the issue of bias in the interpretation and explanation of data. After four decades of teaching chemistry, I now have the luxury of applying maximum thought to His Story and the related writings through the ages. I affirm the following: 1. These many writings give the story of seeing through the glass, darkly. 2. Solomon was correct (Eccl 1:9-11). 3. We live in a world with people seeking meaning and purpose. 4. I am not retired; I am repurposed!

 

Shalom,

Joseph
