The MLV is sold at NO profit.
Because of this, the MLV will never be available in a standard pew sized hard back Bible unless a lot of money is donated to us. It is extremely unlikely the MLV O.T. will be in print ever, even in paper back. One "Christian publisher" wanted $10,000 up front just to talk to us.
Both web sites are paid for by 2 brothers in Christ.  Updates are seldom maintained as we wish due to complete lack of any funds. It takes all our "horsepower" just to keep up barest minimum. Our prayers are to have available an Old Testament, a Greek Interlinear and an Analytical Concordance to go along with the MLV.  We truly want an ERROR-FREE Word of God and these should help that goal.
