    Why get the NWT when you can get the Oxford Study Bible at Half Price Books for about 10 bucks?v

    How did I miss this? So, the RNWT wasn't really that well kept of a secret after all!

    Yep and it's all about money...

    I can understand oppostate being miffed that we ignored his thread and then acted really surprised by later threads on the same subject :) Well, my excuse is that I was away from the forum for a few months at the time, I don't know what you guys' is ;)

    It was revealed at the AGM that trial versions of the Bibles had been getting tested in the previous months, but I didn't think they meant with the new text in them, just the new binding. But I guess it makes sense; they were in the midst of ramping up production on the new NWT and printing them in large volume, so printing a few old NWTs with the new binding wouldn't have been practical. Not surprising that they recalled them in order to increase the surprise factor when they were officially debuted.

    Did these trial Bibles have the new text or the old text?

    Well, he said in his second post that the brackets had been removed, so I assume that the other changes were made as well and he just didn't have time to notice.
