    Default Reader's Hebrew Bible and BibleWorks

    There's a BibleWorks connection to the Reader's Hebrew Bible. The work was done by a very avid BibleWorks user and you can read a bit more about that connection on the Koinonia blog.

    I bought the book long ago and can vouch for its good construction.

    I got a gift card for Barnes & Noble and used it to buy RHB. They only had the one copy, it was misplaced, so it took me and one of the clerks a while to find it.

    What a monumental task producing RHB must have been, especially having to use MSWord. I can't imagine the headaches.

    Anyway, great job. I love the duotone leather. That was the deciding factor for me.

    For those who may be considering the Reader's Hebrew Bible, I have found the font and the text to be the easiest on the eyes of any printed Hebrew Bible I have, and I have a fair number of them. The RHB is very easy to read.

    AND it has that nice leather cover. Time will tell but I wish the BHS was made as nicely as this seems to be.

    Well, while we're wishing, I'd love to have a Bomberg (2nd Edition) as nice as this.

    But I may have to wait until I get to heave for that.

    And while we're at it (previously posted - maybe some stray publisher will read this!), I'd like the Reader's edition co-published with a Greek Reader's edition. I find the font of the UBS edition much easier to read than Zondervan's 2nd edition. The Utriusque edition is a little bulky.

    All I want for Christmas is a OT/NT Reader's Combo . . .

    Well the UBS edition better have something going for it since it costs $20+ more.

    Given the size of RHB, I think adding the RGNT would make it pretty bulky as well. But I suspect you'll ultimately get your wish, i.e., it wouldn't surprise me at all if Zondervan takes it to the next level and combines the two.

    I won't buy it though, as I prefer the Textus Receptus, and I really don't need the glosses anyway.

    If anyone is interested, the Trinitarian Bible Society publishes a couple of pretty nice Greek Textus Receptus New Testaments --

    I'll have to look at this. The Greek version is very nice.

    Totally worth the investment. A thing of beauty it is. Much, much easier to use than BHS w. Armstrong, Busby & Carr. JMHO.
