Just wondering if you have a New International Version (NIV) in the works @ Mantis? I use an NIV for hardcopy when my mobile device is unavailable and it would be handy to cross-ref like text.

We have been working on getting a license to distribute NIV text since before Mantis 1.0 was released :)

I'm happy to report that we made a breakthrough this past week, and hopefully the NIV will be coming to Mantis soon. The publisher is having a meeting this coming Tuesday, so we'll have more information after that.

We spoke with the publisher yesterday. Their internal meeting went very well, and they've scheduled a large meeting with us, including heads from many departments, for Tuesday, March 10th. We hope to have an announcement after that meeting.

I'll try not to push too hard in an attempt to be the first in line to get NIV on Mantis. 8-)

In regard to your meeting yesterday with the publishers of the NIV, do you have plans to also try to obtain the TNIV for Mantis? The NIV publishers put together a wonderful translation in the TNIV. Bible scholar Gordon Fee was on the translation committee. Also wondering if you will be offering some of Gordon Fee's books and commentaries. Thanks!

Our meeting with Zondervan will cover more than just the NIV translation. We'd like to carry many, many of their titles, including the full NIV family, their Spanish translations, Study Bible materials, and other books. We'll know more about what we'll be able to offer after our big meeting next Tuesday.

count me in line with the rest ... money in hand! (or iTunes credits, or whatever!)

I love your software. I'm getting more and more used to taking notes in it, using the Strongs numbers (w/NASS), notes and so much more.

Praying that God may bless your efforts "immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine."

Awesome verse reference. Thank you. Love that verse because it reminds us of just how much greater God is than we are...or can even imagine.

@burggraf

You said it! And I can imagine pretty big! (Lord knows I ask a lot, too!) I'm in the midst of memorizing that whole prayer (from v14 on). I love the fact that Paul takes all those words to pray for those he holds dear to have strength and power ... just to be able to know the love of Christ. THAT is perspective.

Thanks again.

I can't make any official announcement until the end of this week, but I can tell you that Tuesday's meeting with Zondervan went extremely well. Extremely well.

Mark--"The Lord God is a sun and a shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly." Ps. 84:11 "The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord." Ps. 37:23 Thanks for all your hard work every day and for pursuing those things that the Lord has put in your heart to do.
