Study editions will be sometime after January.  I'm not sure how long after January, but that's what they said at the meeting.  First thing we'll be able to get is the larger print version of the 2013 Bible.  This larger version will have NO NEW CONTENT, just larger print than in the Annual Meeting release of the Bible.

 

I sure hope we get at least an updated ePub with the new scriptures for the Draw Close book before we study it.

I was told by the elders in my congregation that the Large Print version of the 2013 Bible will not be out until June 2014, so I already put my order in.

Am so glad that the large print will be out in 2014, my eye's can't take the small writing in our new grey bibles!   YIKES!   I have to get a magnifying glass so I can read the verses.   It's so hard for me to hold up the bible and share with the householder, and am trying to get his/her eyes on it and read it.  So since I have an excellent partner, I ask them to read the scripture to the householder.  That really helps out and sometimes I work with friends who have those tablets where they can download JW.ORG or WT Library.  Really helpful stuff.  But am longing for the LARGE PRINT, so I can use that to study with, and take to my meetings.

So, I have started studying the Draw Close book for the first time (I was "out" when it was introduced). I love it already--it is very well written by someone who knows how to present the information so as to pull your heartstrings!!!!!

 

It feels like a personal gift from Jehovah--like he is talking straight to my heart.  :heart:  The CO talked about "falling in love" with our God Jehovah--that's what this book is doing all over again!

 

What do you like about the book (I'm only in Chapter 2).

the letter our congregation received said large print in Feb. or March 2014

 

might see the Study Edition of Bible in the fall 2014

Where is the foundation for the thinking/concept of a "Study Edition" coming from? ...  what might it contain that our new RNWT doesn't already have?   ...  my understanding is just current size now and large print by March. - These are the most up to date, complete 21st Century Bibles ever ... what more could be needed?   ...

Extended footnotes like the reference bible has.

Wider margins for note taking were mentioned too.

The Study Bible gives us more tools to work with. When looking at different ground to cultivate, more tools help us be more effective. We would prefer to research with the high tinsel strength of the FDS brand over the imitations. To me it's like being prepared with extra oil. I don't want to be caught with a question and fall short on enlightenment. 

 

By way of example, tonight I was studying with one of my grandsons and was looking for a text. Without the superscriptions it took longer to find what I was looking for. I almost lost my audience attention in the offing. If, on the other hand, one has total recall, there would be no need for such references. Some of us need more help.

Found out tonight there will be new electronic editions of the Draw Close book before the end of the year but no printed ones because it takes months or even years to do. Only thing changed is new understanding of chapter 1.

 

Interesting. I look forwarded to seeing the change. I just looked it over and it still looks good to me :)

This was sent to me by a brother from his website.

 

There is a revised version of the Draw Close to Jehovah book on JW.org. And it IS  linked to the Revised NWT. It can be downloaded in EPUB, MOBI and PDF + HMTL format at jw.org.

This revised version has quite a number of changes in the text. The book was released in 2002 and has been revised in December 2013.  We can imagine there must be changes. 

As the book will not be reprinted at this time elders are advised to use the electronic version when on the platform conducting the Bible Study. Readers too need a pad/tablet. Otherwise the study sections must be printed and used on the platform.  The old book must not be used on the platform during the study.
