Mine was in my mailbox today.  Didn't have much time this evening to thumb through it, but at first glance it looks very good - very Lutheran. I expect to give it a good workout.  I'd be interested in others' observations and reactions.

I have to wait, since I ordered the larger print.  I am envious.   ;)

Me too...large print, sangria leather for me.....end of the month.

Me not.  I ordered the normal hardback.  Where's mine?!?!  >:(

I would raise *holy hell* with Pr. McCain if I were you, esp. since you have good eyes.  Give him and Pr. Englebrecht what for since you were slighted and haven't got your Bible.   ;) ;D

I hope to get mine in October sometimes. At least that is when the nice lady from Concordia promised it. ;D

It was supposed to be Reformation Day Pr. B.  How dare they (CPH) ship early!

Good eyes, schmood I's.  I'm durn near blind, but thank God for contact lenses.  As to Paul and Ted, well, I'll just have to wait and see if mine shows up tomorrow or not.

It is the NA27 with the cool commentary, right?  [[Why bother with English translation, after all...]]

Scott,

I received an email this morning saying that my copy was shipped today.  I expect it to arrive next week.

;D

I ordered the leather bound standard print - my eyes are still working fine - but at 46 the day is approaching.  I didn't notice the large print version available when I placed my order.  Think I'll make a phone call today.

Yes - a Lutheran one... at least this one appears Lutheran..  (wondering if that means it shipped with free lutheran beverage samples or?)   ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Big, big difference betwixt and between the two such that they pretty much constitute different genres.

Check out the differences...

CPH's new study Bible on John: http://s7d1.scene7.com/s7ondemand/brochure/flash_brochure.jsp?company=CPH&sku=John&config=tlsb_epistles&zoomwidth=1000&zoomheight=800 (note that you can flip through the pages like a virtual book)

AF's new study Bible on Jonah: http://www.augsburgfortress.org/media/downloads/LSB_sample_pages.pdf (as an aside, Jonah is one of the more heavily-commented upon books; I noticed that other books have a lot of white space in the margins)

I believe Brother Yakimow is in a different shipping zone. Also, the distribution team is filling a lot of orders all at once. I think they are going out in the order the purchases were received. That may have affected the arrival time. I would be interested to read people's reactions to the book in this forum.

The SMP Seminarian and I each picked up a copy yesterday at CSL's book store and I have to say I am blown away by the book as a resource.

I have a feeling that this bible will not only be great for private devotional work, but also in my theological studies.

Orientation is over. Time to explore the city of St. Louis for a couple days before classes on tuesday!
