I was wondering if you were in any stages of developing  version of the LXX (Septuagint) for Mantis.  I'm wary of getting the new Greek Bundle without it.  I was wondering if you will be doing another version of the GNT taken from the Nestle-Aland version, or just keeping with Majority Text versions.  With the Hebrew that you have in the works, are you going to be using some Majority Text, or are you going to be using the MT (Masoretic Text) as contained in BHS (Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia)?  I see that you guys have a version of the Vulgate, but are you going to work on getting a version of Nova Vulgata?  Also in the realm of biblical studies, are you going to offer any other Lexicons: BAG, or maybe something for the LXX if you guys are working on that?

Are you still planing on implementing a version of the Lutheran Confessions at anypoint in the future?

Wow, that's a lot of questions!  While I can't offer timelines on any of these, I can tell you we do have plans to do the Septuagint, and we'll eventually do an NA Greek NT -- just not sure which version yet, a lot depends on licensing.

I don't know off hand which texts our Hebrew is based on -- I'd have to research that. 

We will probably offer the Lutheran Confessions, and I'm not sure what BAG is.  

Right now we're working on Zodhiates' Complete Word Study Old Testament and New Testament (if that's any help.)
