With the parting of the TNIV, I wondered what others in modern times had short shelf lives and why.
Oh and here is a suggestion/prediction from Rick Mansfield:
(1) Get your TNIVs while you can as they will become more difficult than ever to find. Yes, I know that it’s promised that the TNIV won’t be phased out until the 2011 NIV is in print. But come on. I put 2009 and not 2011 on the tombstone above for a reason. For the most part Zondervan’s never been that keen on the TNIV. They certainly can’t be found in stores. Do you really think that as supplies dwindle, they’ll crank up another print run? No way. Who knows–they may even be collectors’ items one day. It kind of makes me regret deciding to start writing in the margins of my TNIV Renaissance Leather Reference Edition.
