Hi There,

Really been enjoying the Mantis on my iPhone - much easier than carrying a bible when I'm on the road (which is often for me).

I'd like it if the NLT translation turned up and my wife would like the NIV, but I suspect you get those requests every day.

An odder request is this one. Any chance of getting the Tanach (or Tanakh) eg: The Stone Edition published by Mesorah Publications Ltd, First Ed December 1996, 4401 Second Ave Brooklyn, NY, ISBN 0-89906-269-5? Does not need to be this particular one, there are more and less popular ones I'm sure. A quick search for "books" on Amazon shows the Stone edition at the top of the list and many others including a Kindle edition.

In the simplest terms the "Tanach" (or "Tanakh") is the "Old Testament" for the Jewish - it is basically identical to the Christian "Old Testament" except the books are named differently, in a different order, and they are translated by different people resulting in slightly different translations and generally are side-by-side Hebrew/English. The Tanach is made up of three sections: Torah (first 5 books), Prophets and Writings. The five books of the Torah are: Bereishis, Shemos, Vayikra, Bamidbar and Davarim - the books in a Tanach are "named" with the first word of each book so Genesis starts with "In the beginning" or Bereishis...

For people studying the old testament and/or Biblical Hebrew - a copy of the Tanach is a must, and since mine weighs over a Kg (err, about 2.5 lbs) having it on the iPhone would be much easier to carry. To be most useful it should contain both Hebrew and English and commentary and marginal aids and annotations.

Thanks!


Arthur

We will look into this one.  A lot of this has to do with the publisher and how willing they are to grant permission.
