Back in August of last year, we announced that we’d soon be working on digitizing the massive Anchor Yale Bible (formerly Anchor Bible). A little over seven months later, and we’re just about done with the largest single project we’ve ever undertaken!
When we first started working on it, there were 83 volumes that we were going to be able to include. Since that time, an 84th has become available—John Reumann’s 808-page commentary on Philippians. That brings the cumulative numbers to 44,123 pages, 163 pounds, an estimated 25,300,000 words, and 10+ feet of saved shelf space!
Our electronic text development team has been pushing extra hard to have their work finished by the end of the month. So we’re almost ready to start shipping. For those of you who already pre-ordered this set, that means your wait is just about over. For the rest of you, that means that you still have a few days left to get your pre-order in at the deeply discounted Pre-Pub price.
Very few people own all 84 of these volumes due to their high cost and the amount of space they take up. Now they can be yours for just a fraction of the print cost and without requiring you to purchase any more bookshelves—and, of course, in a much more usable format.
