        • Hi Pieter,

          Have you heard from the publisher yet. Also looking for it in South Africa

          • Hi Brendon,
            I’ll send you the contact information via email regarding where you may be able to purchase the ONM Bible in ZA. Sending individual copies via postal service to some addresses in ZA has been challenging. The postal charges are expensive and when packages fail to arrive, the is no recourse for the customer or for us. Unfortunately, we can no longer ship individual orders to ZA via post. We are working on alternate arrangements now, including a ZA distributor.
            Thanks and Blessings,
