There might be an LDS study Bible come out, if some of us can get our act together.
About 7 or 8 people have come together to write a Bible (actually just the NT at
this time) -- my assignment, for instance, is Romans and I and II Corinthians. The
problem has been, in addition to getting a committee to work together (different
people have different levels of enthusiasm and different abilities) there is a
commercial consideration I'm not at liberty to talk about. We're waiting for that
to be resolved. As a teaser, let me tell you that John Tvedtnes of FARMS has been
assigned all of the Johannine material (the Gospel of John and the epistles), and
will be co-author of the section on Revelation.
