Correct me if I'm wrong, but currently the only modern English Language
version I can see that contains the deutero-canon is the CPDV version.
I'm not at all sure about this version, partly because it is a bit
ponderous to read, and also because it is the work of only one person
rather than a group of translators. Michael mentions the WEB version as
having the extra books - the Sword module I can find contains only the
66 book canon. Is there anything else out there please?
God bless, Barry.
