      This Bible is the work of many Orthodox scholars, a few of whom I am very well acquainted. All those committed to the Orthodox Christian faith should have a copy for regular use.

      Bonded leather is great- soft, not stiff, like genuine leather, but not floppy like some high grade leather Bibles. Features

      great for Orthodox- informative notes, OT organized in the

      traditional Orthodox order, with original Orthodox book titles.

      Psalms(our most used book) are numbered in the Orthodox

      fashion. Large print and easy reading type can be read by

      those with older eyes. The Bible is well balanced, feels good

      in the hand, can be read while holding in one hand. Lays flat.

      Opens easily the 1st time. Needs no breaking in. This will

      become my most used, main, go-to Bible, hands down. The

      translation of the OT from the Septuagint is in line with

      Orthodox (and early church) OT usage and preferences. The

      NT NKJV translation uses the Received Text, the only NT

      that we Orthodox officially accept.

      The Bible at 1st glance is a handsome, perfectly sized Bible

      for carrying around and reading without squinting.

      I honestly can't find much to complain about this Bible!

      Anyone wanting to know what the Early Church taught will

      be thrilled with this Bible, not just Orthodox. Good job,

      Thomas Nelson Publishing!

      Also, The OT notes do a good job of showing Christ in the

      OT, in places you might not have realized!

      In 2008, a friend of mine who is an Anglican priest told me about this & he was impressed with it. His bishop had given every rector in his diocese a (hardbound) copy.

      I didn't think much about it at the time, but, after some online research a few years later, I discovered that The Orthodox Study Bible was mostly the New King James Bible text with the addition of most of the Apocryphal books. Brilliant! I had wanted a Bible like this for years! I love the NKJV!

      BTW, the Old Testament is not a complete new translation of the Septuagint. The parts of the Septuagint where it differs from the NKJV text are newly translated but where there are no differences, the NKJV text is used. The NT is the straight NKJV text, of course.

      Now that part was fine. What disappoints me is the content of the notes and the other non-scriptural material. The items pertinent to Orthodox Christians are necessary & relevant, of course. They are the primary audience for this Bible & they don't have as many good Bible choices as, say American Protestant Evangelicals do.

      However, in addition to the Orthodox-specific material, I'd like to have some more background information covered in the notes, too. Like other Study Bibles such as the NIV Study Bible. This Bible does have cross references, but they are skimpy, IMHO.

      So I do use this Bible & I appreciate it for what it is but I can't use it as my primary Study Bible these days, as I thought I might when I bought it. I have to supplement it with the Hebrew-Greek Key Word Bible (NASB) and the NIV Archeological Study Bible.

      The quality of the binding & printing aren't the greatest either. Boo, Thomas Nelson. You could have done better!

      This is a top quality Bible in beautiful leather. Lovely prayers and outstanding artwork included. This is my favorite in my large collection of Bibles. I have given this Bible to others who enjoy it as much as I do.
