I just noticed that estudysource is offering a new commentary and it sounds too good to be true:

http://estudysource.....aspx?pid=C0024

What surprises me is the low price. Then, I wondered if it some kind of an abridged version. Any comments? I did email estudysource to ask, BTW.

Jogirl....

Heres what I've found out on this Set....Its the same one theWord has for a "Fee". They have a fee for each volume of the OT & NT.... They also have a fee for the entire OT (22 vols....$660+).....And they also have the entire NT (18 vols....$500+). I'm thinking the 18 vols that eStudysource is offering is the same as theWord is offering (Full NT Version ).....but  at 1/5 of the Price. When you get the answer to your eMail.....please let us know what they said !!

So far, no response. I have re-read their description and cannot find a hint that these are not the full volumes as per the hardbound set. But, I really need validation before I bite. Wish there was another way to get it. This is a great commentary and would be a huge savings for all.

On that note, I went to the site and had a look at the price, and I drooled out both sides of the mouth (which is good cos that means I'm on the level :lol:). With that said, I'm gonna buy it next month.

 

OK, now for the rest. Now that we have the NICNT in stock, I no longer think it is now a matter of if, but when we will have the TDNT and the TWOT for e-Sword. When the TDNT is going to be made available for e-Sword, I'm hoping that its going to be the unabridged version using the same numbering system as seen in Thayer's Greek NT Dictionary, and in  Brown-Driver-Briggs’ Hebrew Definitions Dictionary.

Update:

A brother was kind of enough to send me something I could use to compare what estudysource offers in the NICNT.  In comparing it with another electronic edition I  have of NICNT, I noticed a few things.  It is essentially the same, including footnotes.  You don't have to select a footnote since they just include all the words in parentheses in the body of the text.  That is nice.  There is a minor sequential difference in where they but the Bibliography and Abbreviations, still they are there.  One problem that is significant for me is that Hebrew text does not render well.  I get question marks instead of Hebrew letters.  So, I suppose one could try any of the several different Hebrew fonts within e-sword to see if another one works.  I normally use the default font which works well in K & D for instance.  (I am thinking it is a given that whatever font I must change to in order to use NICNT must also work with other commentary modules and their Hebrew characters.)

I can't get the Hebrew to render in this commentary either, no matter what font e-Sword uses (default, or otherwise).

 

Also of interest is the tooltipping. When a verse is dissected into a, b, or c, the verse tooltip doesn't show, i.e. Php_2:7c or Rom_8:4b. The letter should be moved away from the verse for the tooltip to activate in e-Sword.

 

Looks like a good set, though, especially at this price.

I wrote estudysource and cited the two issues with the NICNT.

From estudysource: "These are the texts for the 18 vols. as supplied by the publisher. They are not abridged."

As Dartmaster and Josh both said, this is a good set at a good price. An offer I cannot afford to pass up!

OK, the drooling out of both sides of my mouth has now increased 10 fold, as where it is now creating a bit of a flood. I guess that means I really have to do something about getting this commentary.

 

This increased drooling can become a health and safety hazard, and so hanging around for a month to get this commentary is going to have to be at most cut in half.

 

OK, now for some seriousness.

 

Thanks a heap for your information, and for your input to where this commentary is at.

 

Blessings,
