A few items regarding The Lutheran Study Bible which I hope everyone has placed a pre-order for.

The large kit of promotional materials is making its way to you, even as I key in this message. I expect that Lutheran congregations will start receiving it already this week, and for sure by the end of the month. So, be looking for it. It’s important.
May I offer a word of advice? Place your orders for The Lutheran Study Bible, now, not later. Why do I say this? Two reasons:
(1) Based on the every growing “volume” of incoming questions, comments, and all around excitement, it is clear that The Lutheran Study Bible is going to be big, as in B I G, big.
(2) Based on the accelerating pace of pre-publication orders, it appears to be the case that the first print run of The Lutheran Study Bible will be going fast, and based on the complexities of paper supplies, we can not guarantee delivery of the Bible before Christmas once the first print run is out.
I highly recommend therefore that you and your congregation get orders in as soon as you can and basically “take a number” and get in line, for we will be shipping Bibles as the orders were received: first come, first served.
Just a word to the wise.
Get your pre-orders in for shipping on Reformation Day! From all appearances this will be the bible to have for Lutherans!
