Format: Leather Bound
Rating - As a Bible.

This is a well presented, well bound Bible, made to higher standards than most I have seen. The cover and binding are well made. The paper is thin enough to fit 1800 pages into a 3cm width, but substantial enough so that the printing on the reverse side hardly shows through. The font size and styles make the texts easily readable: both the Bible text and the notes, without eye strain. The book falls open easily at any page. This looks and feels like a Bible that will be a pleasure to use long term. 5 stars.

Rating - As an Orthodox Bible

The Bible contains more `Books' than either the standard Protestant, or the Roman Catholic Bible. This is because it is based on the ancient Greek `Septuagint' Old Testament, which the Apostles were familiar with and quoted from. It does not contain all book used by all `Orthodox' churches. The absence of 4 Maccabees has been noted. It will however be welcomed by many Christians who are looking for a `common' bible they can use in Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox settings.

The Bible is based on the New King James Version. This should not be seen as a minus point. Most Bible translations are in fact based on previous versions. The New Testament is left in the standard NKJV form. The Old Testament text has been changed where the Greek of the Septuagint text requires a different reading. Plus of course the direct translation of the Books not in the NKJV. The translators gave done a pretty good job, but they have chosen to translate in a slightly more current, and in my opinion less poetic style to that of the NKJV.

Some Orthodox Christians have expressed particular disappointment with one Book: The Psalms.

Still reading , but bible has a nice feel to it. Now this might sound shallow but I think it is important since a bible is generally the first book you touch in the day. I like th leather cover being flexible, the pages are thin but yet they are not see through and at the same time the print is large enough to read without straining the eyes, a problem with so many bibles unfortunately. I am not a theology student so I cannot comment on the accuracy of the addition information in the front. But the comments on the bottom I find helpfull, specially in the Old Testament which can sometimes have strange passages that seem overly violent to our times.
I love the pages in between with the images, they are really beautiful, wich there had been more of them.
I also like the morning and evening prayers in the back, they surely can help somebody who is only getting started with praying and feels akward about using their own words.

Format: Hardcover
The Orthodox Study Bible (O.S.B.) is the long-awaited completion of a project to provide the full text of Holy Scripture (the entire canon of the Old Testament, with all of its deuterocanonical writings, as well as the New Testament), translated from the Greek texts that are normative for the Orthodox world, to meet the liturgical, devotional, and study needs of Eastern Orthodox laymen and clergy, yet it is also a landmark publication in Christian scholarship of more general application. This assessment of the superb O.S.B. is from the standpoint of an informed Québec layman whose background and research interests, in various ways, encompass Protestantism, Roman Catholicism, and even Eastern Orthodoxy.

The "Orthodox Study Bible" (O.S.B.) is a marvellous choice for Catholic and Orthodox believers who are attached to the phraseology of Anglicanism's Authorised "King James" Version Bible tradition, for whom the O.S.B. is a good and wise choice. The O.S.B. includes the deuterocanon of the Old Testament (O.T.) as well, of course, as the other writings of the O.T., and it uses the N.K.J.V. in the New Testament (N.T.) part. The editors of the O.T. amended the N.K.J.V. to conform to the Greek Septuagint version's renderings. With the O.S.B.'s study notes, a Roman Catholic or Eastern (Uniate) Catholic reader, concerning doctrinal and exegetical matters, only has to ignore the annotation on perhaps one single passsage, St. Matthew 16:18 (which Catholics interpret to defend the role and alleged infallibility of the Papacy, the so-called "Petrine Office"), so Catholics and Eastern Orthodox alike can pretty much agree on everything else in the commentary of the notes.

Format: Hardcover
Lots has been written about this Bible (being the only Orthodox Bible available). I only know of two other Bibles with the full Orthodox canon: The New Oxford Annotated Bible with the Apocrypha: Revised Standard Version, Containing the Second Edition of the New Testament and an Expanded Edition of the Apocrypha is quite a controversial and dated translation but has full academic notes. English Standard Version Bible with Apocrypha has no notes but is a great modern translation respected by Evangelicals and Catholics alike. (It avoids the excessive gender neutrality and controversial translation choices of the NRSV and is one of my favourite modern versions, being very literal but also very readable [in contrast to the clunky NRSV that the Anglican Church seems to be lumbered with].)

The Orthodox Study Bible is basically the NKJV translation with the addition of those books exclusive to the Septuagint, and changes to the text where there is a significant difference between the Hebrew and Greek Old Testaments. (For example, the Hebrew version of Psalm 23 is retained.) If you are looking for a proper translation of the Septuagint, buy A New English Translation of the Septuagint.

The quality of this book is not outstanding but is certainly acceptable and makes this book very affordable. In truth, it is not much of a "study" bible, more a "devotional" Bible. (Compare the notes to those in the Jerusalem Bible and you will see what I mean.
