More Delays in Projected Publication Dates for Fascicles of BHQ
The "fascicle" (or partial book) for Genesis in the scholarly project Biblia Hebraica Quinta was released in February 2016 in Europe but was not available until June 2016 in the USA. The German Bible Society has pushed back its estimates for the releases of Leviticus from 2016 to 2017 and for Daniel from 2017 to 2018. The book of Numbers no longer has a projected release date, but the book of Job is now expected to be published in 2017. Genesis was the seventh fascicle published out of twenty. Since the first fascicle in 2004, there has been an average gap between fascicles of two years, though there is hope for a faster publishing schedule in the future.
