    A public e-text has not yet been released, so that obviously needs to happen first. It won't ever be in the BibleWorks main package though because of licensing restrictions. So it's up to users to provide it for other users.

    Thanks, Joan. What an interesting undertaking. I can see where it could be useful to people in the early stages of learning Greek. I appreciate the translator's clarity about the principles employed and the reasons for them, and his willingness both to render expressions idiomatically when necessary, and to signal when he is doing so.

    FWIW, I Tweeted some impressions I had in glancing over some particularly interesting (to me) spots.
