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.
