Just back from two weeks hard study in Poland, I'm delighted that this 
issue is back under discussion.  I agree wholeheartedly with Chris - in 
that we must respect the original translator's method, versification and 
books.  In Poland, I was with a wide variety of folk, Protestant, of various 
kinds, Catholic, and Jewish.  All agreed that we need to have the deutero-
canonical books available.  (This was even the opinion of a Southern 
Baptist from Texas - although he would feel more comfortable if he could 
turn the deutero-canon on or off at will).

I look forward to re-doing the New Jerusalem as soon as we have a 
method - I have all the missing bits at the ready.

Bless you all,
