    This review was written for The Orthodox Study Bible - Hardcover edition.
    I have to admit that I am very disappointed in this product, in several regards.

    Quality of Object

    The object itself, the book, is rather substandard such that, when I took the dust jacket off, I found glue on the cover, and it won't come off. Further, the binding is a bit weak and the paper quality less than optimal.

    Quality of Material

    As to this being an Orthodox study Bible, I am also disappointed.

    The preambulatory material claims to follow represent the Greek text (Septuagint) of the Old Testament, and they do so to a level that most would find satisfactory, but it is not satisfactory to me. For one, they simply borrowed the NKJV whenever its OT was close enough to the Septuagint. This means that some mistranslation of the Greek have occurred. For example, the literal rendering of the Greek of Genesis 1:2 should be "Yet the earth was invisible and unformed, and darkness was over the abyss, and a divine wind was being carried along over the water" (NETS), but the Orthodox study Bible reads with the NKJV in saying "Spirit of God" instead of "divine wind." The difference may seem slight, but the implications are not. That is, the Greek reading allows for God to be distinct as to person but not as to essential essence (the Greek differentiates between the "what" of God and the "who" of God), but the NKJV reads with an overemphasis on person, making it seem like the Holy Spirit is a completely separate entity or force, which is not the Orthodox understanding, nor is it an accurate reflection of the Greek text. Second, the text claims to follow the Alfred and Brenton editions of the Greek text, but this produces an inconsistency for the Orthodox in that both of those texts rely heavily on Codex Vaticanus. Where is the inconsistency? Well, Codex Vaticanus reads along with the Alexandrian text for the majority of its New Testament text, but the Orthodox reject the Alexandrian text in favor of the later Byzantine text. Consequently, this Bible uses what is essentially a forbidden (strongly disliked) for its Old Testament but rejects that very same text when it comes to the New Testament. This is a huge inconsistency as to the academic honesty of the producers of this study Bible.

    As to "study" material itself, I find it woefully lacking in that the vast majority of passages are left untouched. Instead, the primary focus is on those passages wherein a difference of understanding occurs between the Orthodox and Protestants. Because of this obvious singular focus, this Bible is not so much a study tool as it is propaganda.

    As to the value of the footnotes themselves, I also find a dirth of worth. For example, this Bible misrepresents St Chrysostom's understanding of I Corinthians 15:29 such that his understanding of our new life in Christ was not even discussed. Further, this study Bible failed to address controversial passages well at all (like Mark 16:9-20). In fact, they made stuff up about John chapter 5 in saying that the pool of Bethesda was used for washing sheep, despite all of the evidence which shows it was either a human Mikveh (ceremonial washing place) or a pagan healing pool (which makes sense especially if John 5:4 really is inauthentic).

    Overall, I am sorely unimpressed with this Bible. it's propaganda, pure and simple. It is not an honest nor accurate analysis of the Bible in light of the Orthodox faith. In my opinion, if a Bible either (a) refuses to acknowledge and seriously consider those things which light in disputation or (b) misrepresents the statements of the church fathers, then I have no use for it.

    I am so very pleased with my purchase of the eBook version of the Orthodox Study Bible. It gives me yet another opportunity to have it near me in all of my devices both portable and home-based. I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in having the same experience.

    The helps in this Bible do an excellent job of explaining who, what, when , and where the Orthodox Church is.

    Great worship tools included.

    There are soberminded, negative critiques available for this study Bible. They are well worth reading to help one decide whether or not this is a Bible to purchase. I also would like to address the question about why the words of Christ are not printed in red. Priests have explained to me that we do not split apart the Holy Trinity this way, as if the words of Christ are "more important" than the words and work of either the Father or of the Holy Spirit. God is One in Holy Trinity, and the "red ink" subtly implies a separation. Makes sense to me, and I hope it will be helpful to others as an Orthodox explanation.

    I purchased this item to use with my Pandigital E-Reader. It was one of the listed readers that was supported. However, I was not able to download this ebook to my reader. My Pandigital has the latest Android Software from the Pandigital website. Neither the CBDreader or the Digital Editions will download to the reader. I finally got the e-book to download to my desktop and tried to print out the pages on the Introduction to the Orthodox Church section. It keeps skipping some of the pages and will not allow me to print the pages being selected individually or as part of the group.

    My complaint is that for me this is neither portable or useful for study since I am unable to import nor export text. Any note taking has to be done with pencil and paper while looking at the computer monitor.
