I probably won't pre-order it because it is a paperback version, I will wait till it is released and see if it comes out in leather or hardback. But I am looking forward to it. I used the Gospel of John (from the single book series) when I took a graduate class on the Gospel of John and found it very helpful.

You previously mentioned the Catholic Faith and Family Bible, but didn't have details (now I can't find the post). I was in a CMD class today and they mentioned it, so if you are interested in more details, here's a link (3rd article down):

Hope that helps!

They have an issue date of June 2010, while Amazon has a release date for the paperback edition of April 1, 2010 and allow a pre-order. Currently, there isn't a pre-order for the hardback and leather editions. Price and release dates are probably subject to change.
