We called all-over creation, including St. Vlad's Bookstore, Light and Life, etc., and no one seems to have them in stock as of yet, though they are expecting them soon.

It will go on the book-shelves tomorrow, February 14th.

Until then, one may order copies from St Athanasius' Academy via Fr. Jack Sparks.

I've been waiting 8 years to see what how they edited my contributions. Ugh!

I don't suppose the big bookstores will open at midnight for the crowds that will be lining up to buy like folks did for the Harry Potter books. Hmmm . . . what does that say about our priorities.

Our priorities need changing. And my favorite bible needs changing too! I look forward to seeing the new old testament!

The OSB will help us change our priorities. I'm also looking forward to it.

I believe that our priorities could use some grace in how we spend our leisure time. It is easy to spend two or three hours a day "on rest", watching TV or pursuing spiritually unproductive ends on the Internet. It is good to ask ourselves "does [this] help me in my pursuit of Christ's Love?"

We can take that to the extreme, but self-sacrifice in pursuit of God's ways is a virtue.

I called Conciliar Press yesterday and they will send me a leather bound edition at the end of this month (Feb.) They told me that hard copies can be sent now. There is a 20% discount for ordering it now. I think the total price for the leather edition was about $72 with shipping. I expect this edition to out live me (or I will want my money back!).

I just picked up my copy Sunday.

Not bad, all in all.

A few disappointments, but that is related to my own preferences, and a few changes from the original plans.

For example, 4 Maccabees is no longer included in the appendix. It was slated to be included originally. Now I have to change my BIBLE DRILL material at http://interiorstrength.com.

Dear Father,

Father bless!

Is 4 Maccabees included elsewhere in the OSB New and Old Testament?

Respectfully in Christ,

4 Maccabees was included in the Septuagint OT, but always in an appendix. It extols the value of pious virtue over the passions.

I saw both the text and the notes that would have been in the OSB, and they were excellent.

At the OSB workshop, it was on the list of books, so it was slated for inclusion, but, alas, did not make the final cut.

I am confused... Amazon and others still say it is not out yet and will not be out until June. Why is that?

I have got to say, that is quite a disappointment that 4th Maccabees did not make the final cut. very disappointing.

Blessings,

No, it's a VBS style program with ALOT of memorization and physical fitness for teen boys we did about 4 years ago, and it really caught on.

The only passing score is 100%, and all quizzes are cumulative.

It's been running for 4 years now.
