  1. The NRSV truly knocks it out of the park in terms of attractive and varied versions at a lower price range. The two stand-outs being the Illustrated Catholic Bible, with the woodcuts and incredible gilding, and Bishop Barron’s fine work here.

  2. Has anyone read any of the Oxford Bible Companion? There was an article on the resurrection that argued that Jesus preached a corporate resurrection for believers and never applied the idea to himself. I haven’t seen any Bible commentary mention the idea and it did not make sense to me in the light the apostles’ hardships in Acts or the history of the early Church. Anyone encountered this idea before? I am re-reading Pope Emeritus Benedict’s book on Holy Week to finish Lent. Should offer a corrective.

  3. Apologies for the third comment. I work in higher education and am used to most atheist and agnostic arguments. I guess I have never really seen such a banal explanation of Jesus’s teachings. Even the Zealot argument, if squint, makes more sense than a vague appeal to corporate atonement. I AM the way, the truth, and the life… Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.. etc.

    Moving away from many of the scholarly fights in my 40s. I know what I believe and what I don’t.

  4. This is great! Thanks for the news about the Lent sale, Marc, and for your fantastic blog, in general. I have been debating whether to take advantage of the sale to get Vol. I or II or both, as I’ve heard and read so many wonderful reviews about the Word on Fire Bible. These editions are just plain beautiful, too, especially the leather-bound books.

    What’s stopping me for now is hearing that the complete OT of the Ignatius Study Bible is very close to hitting store shelves. I was just listening to Curtis Mitch talking about the Book of Deuteronomy on the Classical Theism podcast, and he mentioned that he expects the complete Ignatius Study Bible to be released sometime in the next 6 months. I believe that the episode was recorded in February 2022, so we might be looking at a Q3 release. I don’t remember if he mentioned that he and Dr. Hahn et al. have completed writing all of the notes and essays for the unreleased OT books, but I think that was implied. Also not sure if the entire Bible will be released as a one volume edition. I think I’d prefer a two volume set, just due to the sheer immensity of the NT itself. But, it’s definitely great news, regardless of how the edition is published.

    1. I’d like to be excited.
      But it was 6 months away back in 2020.
      A year away in 2018.
      The Ignatius Catholic Study Bible is the equivalent of Cold Fusion. I’ll believe it’s real when it finally is…

      1. It’s kinda like the revised English translation of the Liturgy of the Hours. It’s been “coming next year” for ages, and last I heard they’ve pushed back the publication date yet again to 2025 or later.

        Speaking of 2025, isn’t that when the fully re-revised NABRE is supposed to be completed? The Old Testament was finished in 2011, the psalter is officially the Abbey Psalms & Canticles now (which begs the question, will those canticles be inserted into the OT and NT so all the liturgical translations are consistent?), but I haven’t heard any news about the New Testament in quite some time.

    2. I received this from Ignatius Press, on April 12, 2022, regarding the complete Ignatius Study Bible:

      “… there is still a lot of work to be done so I’m afraid there is not any way it will be available this year (2022). We are hoping for late next year (2023), but can’t provide a date since it’s too early in the process.”

      1. An addendum:

        From an email I received from Ignatius Press (4/13/22), currently, the plan is that the complete ISB will be one book.
        The current individual booklets will continue to be offered.

        1. Awesome, thank you for the information! Should’ve known it was too good to be true lol, I believe that Curtis Mitch was talking about the publication date in all sincerity, but I underestimated how much work has to be done behind the scenes, even after all the writing is done. I should learn not to get my hopes up.

          I remember also seeing 2025 as the tentative release date for the re-revised NABRE before all went silent, and I never followed up on it. That’s another translation that I’ve nearly given up hope for. One day…

      2. Lol. I felt bad when I wrote up an analysis showing that the ICSB wouldn’t be completed until the 2030s, and then 6 months later they announced the text was done. But now it increasingly looks like I’m gonna be vindicated. Mark Brumley’s commitment to this project seems to rival only George R. R. Martin’s commitment to finishing The Winds of Winter.
