Good News – not only for Norwegians

Some good news for my Norwegian friends and fellows and followers (but not only these): Logos Bible Software is to integrate the most recent translations from The Norwegian Bible Society. As stated on the Logos webpage: ” The 1978/85 translation, Norway’s most widely used translation, was a complete revision of previous Norwegian translations. The 2011 translation, based on the original Hebrew and Greek, became Norway’s best-selling book the same year it was released. The Norwegian Bible Collection includes Bible translations in both the primary Norwegian languages: Bokmål and Nynorsk. Each Bible includes explanatory notes, a glossary, timetables, maps, and readings for Sunday’s service.

With Logos, every word is essentially a link. Scripture references connect directly to the Bibles in your library—both the original language texts and English translations. Double-clicking any word automatically opens your lexicons to the relevant entry, making Greek and Hebrew words instantly accessible. With Logos, you can quickly move from the table of contents to your desired content and search entire volumes and collections by topic, title, or Scripture reference.”

The volumes included are the 2006 edition (containing the 1978/85 translation of the OT and the 2005 translation of the NT), and the most recent 2011 new translation of the whole Bible; both editions in both Nynorsk and Bokmål.

If you preorder the package, the price is set to 464,56 NOK (79.95 USD).
