Schocken Bible vol. 2: Fox Translation

I highly recommend that you make available in your store Everett Fox's newer translations in the Schocken Bible:

The Early Prophets: Joshua, Judges, Samuel, and Kings: The Schocken Bible, Volume II. Published by Schocken.
Those of us who have benefitted so greatly from his earthy translations will no doubt snap it up as we look for new ways to make the Hebrew Scriptures come alive in the pulpit.
 
If you're interested in hearing more about Fox's work and translations, there was an excellent write-up in the New Yorker.

Bump... Volume II has been out since 2014. Having Vol. 1, I can say that this is a unique kind of literal translation that I find to be helpful and intriguing.

I really hope that this would be combined with the existing Schocken Bible module, with an upgrade price, rather than installing a second module.

 

Please note that this includes maps. Given the eccentric nature of the Schocken Bible, I'd guess that its maps might be a little different from typical Bible maps, so be sure to include them. (Actually, I think you should always include maps when they're part of the published product.)
