I hope this is real:

Just found this on @christianbook.com – christianbook.com/Christian/Book… Someone likes you, @drjewest LXX/NA28! #lxx #na28

Yes, this does appear to be a Greek Old Testament (LXX) and Greek New Testament (NA28under one cover. Here’s the product page. The thing is more than 3,000 pages and expensive. And those dimensions of 18.4 x 13.3 (inches) can’t possibly be right.

But we’ll see. I know a guy who knows a guy, and he’s asking to see if it’s real. I’ll post again here if what we’re really seeing is just a remnant of an April Fool’s Joke on CBD….

UPDATE: Note the comment below from Rick Brannan of Logos, reproduced here: “FWIW, I asked a guy I know at Hendrickson about this and he said it was real, said it would be at SBL in Baltimore, and reported the issue with dimensions (the dimensions are likely in centimeters and not inches).”

Nice!

SECOND UPDATE: A few more product details here.

    FWIW, I asked a guy I know at Hendrickson about this and he said it was real, said it would be at SBL in Baltimore, and reported the issue with dimensions (the dimensions are likely in centimeters and not inches).
