ARTB Publishing is a limited liability corporation in the state of Missouri. It was founded to publish and distribute the Ancient Roots series both in print and on the web. The Old Testament of the Ancient Roots series was published in the 4th quarter, 2006. The New Testament is expected in 2008. In addition, a print edition of the exhaustive concordance for the ARTB is expected in 2009.
There is an exciting new product which has never been done before for any bible version: a Thesaurus of Daily Life which compiles all the words in the Old Testament organized by the categories of daily life. Those categories are organized into to major phases of the Israelite nation, the "Nomad Phase" and the "City Life" phase. This project is close to production. Exact timing of the release has not been established.
Ms. A. Frances Werner has B.A. in Biology with certification for secondary education from the University of Missouri (1976), an M.A. in Ecology from Washington University (1978) and an M.B.A. from Washington University in 1987. Ms. Werner’s first career began in the laboratory where she published more than a dozen technical papers on various topics in ecology in peer reviewed journals. Ms. Werner’s career in business spanned 20 years moving from the laboratory to a Vice President in Sales and Marketing in a Fortune 500 company. The author’s skill in analyzing enormous data bases (including analyzing of the US government environmental database with 80 million data points) helped her identify the shortcomings in accuracy in modern English bible translations as published in the Truth in Translation: Accuracy and Surprising Bias in the Old Testament. Her second career has revolved around the restoration of the Hebraic and Aramaic roots of the Old Testament. Her scientific methodology employed in the creation of the Ancient Roots Translinear Bible (ARTB) is a breakthrough which simplifies bible study by eliminating the need for concordances, dictionaries, and cross-references by a precise matching of the English vocabulary to the ancient text. Patent pending.
