I haven't seen this yet, but hope to get a copy soon. My only gripe is with the choice of translation.  Why not utilize the NABRE or NRSV?  ABS publishes editions in both translations.

Another, completely agrees. Why go to the lowest common denominator - wait, maybe that's why...apart from the GNB being the default translation of the English language Bible Societies.
