    The SBLGNT being made freely available was a wonderful thing. I use it in my NIV2011 comparison pages.

    That’s really great news. Any rumors of a Kindle edition?

    Complete description is at

    OSNOVA’s Kindle edition of the SBL Greek New Testament provides an excellent formatting and navigation. The OSNOVA Kindle edition incorporates an active table of contents, a 5-way controller navigation between chapters and books, a cross-reference system between the Bible text and the apparatus, and the innovative navigation aid called Direct Verse Jump 2 (DVJ-2), which makes it easy to open any Bible verse in mere seconds. The complete instructions on how to use all navigation aids in this publication are found at the beginning of the book.

    Hey Dr. Burk,

    Are you as a scholar privy to any information about Nestle-Aland 28 at all? Biblia Hebraica Quinta is set for 2015, but there seems to be no word about the new edition of Novum Testamentum.
