Am I the only one on this board who pre-ordered and is still waiting...    :'(

It looks like you placed the order in August so that would likely put you close to the end of the pre-order line. We started receiving preorders months before August. They are filled in the order in which they were received. Many, many, many thousands of copies are going out all at once, so I beg your patience.

Busted!  :D

Sorry Scott, I think I may have had something to do with your late ordering of the CPH Study Bible.  ;)

Feb 13 t'ain't late.

But I'm still waiting for that gold-engraved, diamond-encrusted, baby-seal-skin version you promised me...

Scott,

I ordered mine last weekTuesday and I got it yesterday.  Maybe CPH likes me better ;).

There's customer service, and then there's customer service. Somebody somewhere around here (I think) mentioned Pfatteicher's new or revised New Book of Festivals and Commemorations. Saw that Augsburg wanted $50 for it. I found a (completely unnoticeably) used copy on line for less than half that, ordered it on Sept. 3, it arrived on Sept. 5.

The heavens opened, the birds sang, and seals leaped for joy in my neighbor's fish pond clapping their fins together to the beat of "A Mighty Fortress" before choirs of chirping dolphins drowned them out with an oddly-pitched rendition of "Thy Strong Word" as the mail guy drove by and rather unceremoniously dropped a package with a reverberous "thud!" on my driveway before almost backing over it...

It has arrived, it has arrived!  Immanusefar!  Hallelujah, hallelujah!  Mine eyes have seen...

Oh for crying out loud, you guys!  I just know you are all simply trying to make me dig out my checkbook and write someone a check!  It's a conspiracy I tell you!    ;)  How good can this new Study Bible be?!?! 

When we do family study at our house we're already using The Apologetics Study Bible (which uses a very literal HCSB translation), the Archaeological Study Bible (which uses the NIV translation), my personal no frills attached ESV bible AND The IVP Dictionary of the New Testament: A One-Volume Compendium of Contemporary Biblical Scholarship...  If I try to add yet another book to each study it will take three days to read each chapter AND I'll have to talk the wife into having another child or someone is going to have to read two! lol  :P


Honestly though, what is it that is getting you guys so excited about this study bible?  It is just the Lutheran point of view stuff or is there something else?

There has not been much this summer to be happily excited about on the Lutheran front this summer.  Any port in a storm, any excuse to get a little happily worked up.

I've barely had time since I got mine to skim it, but everything I've noted in it has been cheering.  I want to write up a detailed comment on its features, but it will have to wait.  In the meantime, though, add me to the list of those who are blown away by this fabulous resource!

Pr. McCain mis(quoted) me in his blog post about reactions.  I actually stated "The SMP Seminarian and I" which would mean my Pops...so not just any other seminarian as it seems in my revised edition quote.  How very unlike the scholarly work of CPH on this to detract from the original!

Just bein a goof, the quote works better as revised.

At Zion (the little ELCA parish on Peoria's South Side) this morning 45 gathered for worship.  New in the Narthex was a display for the pre-publication ordering of TLSB and I, uh, encouraged folks to check it out -- for themselves and for loved ones.  (Time to replace that paperback copy of "The Way" you've been bringing to Bible studies...)  Already had my name on the sign-up sheet.  4 more added today.  All large-print editions.  Several others are thinking about it. 

Oh, there was one request for an edition with a pretty blue cover like AFP's.

No doubt, this is true for some folks. However, I think it's more than a summer phenomenon. As I noted in an earlier post, the desire for a new Study Bible in the LCMS goes back at least to 2001. At CPH, requests for the new Study Bible have been the most common question from customers for several years now. This is a highly anticipated book, hence the joy over its release.

Lutherans have never had a book like this in English. Arguably, the earlier Lutheran Study Bibles (German and Latin) did not include a similar set of features or notes, nor were they accessible for lay people or affordable for many pastors since they were printed as large folio volumes. The CSSB, while a great resource, always spoke "bland evangelical," not Law-and-Gospel Lutheran. These are some of the reasons people are celebrating the release.

Question to those who have the new Lutheran Study Bible.  What meaning do the notes give to kephale, particularly in I Cor. 11?

You should work at CPH, you've convinced me  :)  *off looking for my checkbook

Marie:  "The Father is the head of Christ according to Christ's human nature..... The relationship does not make the Son inferior.  A husband and wife live in a relationship with different roles yet without implication of superiority or inferiority.  Chyrs:  'Had Paul meant to speak of rule and subjection... he would not have brought fofrward the instance of a wife, but rather of a slave and a master.'"
