There are several ways to read the Bible - the two most common are devotional and academic. A devotional reader reads the Bible as if it were a love-letter from their Beloved - reading not critically, not looking for flaws or loopholes, or evidence, but rather looking for what the Beloved wishes to communicate. The academic reader reads as if reading a scientific textbook, searching for flaws, evidence, arguments, and proof.
There is a place for both types of reading. Devotional for the Spiritual life, and Academic for the person who needs more evidence to come to Faith regarding a particular teaching, or who writes for those in such a position, or a person who simply has an academic interest in Religious matters. Many times a person might alternate between the two types of reading based on their needs at a given time.
If you are a person who wishes to read the Bible devotionally, with an understanding of the Orthodox Church's teachings on the passages, this is a perfect choice. If you are new to Orthodoxy, or cradle Orthodox, or if you know nothing of Orthodoxy, and want to understand the Church's teachings about every New Testament passage, this is an ideal place to start.
If you are an academic reader, I would still strongly encourage this edition, only with the caveat that you shouldn't expect it to what it is not. It gives a wonderful first level overview of any given passage, and a good place to start for further reasearch. It is not an apologetic work, but neither was it intended to be.
I have read this edition from cover-to-cover - every word, every footnote, every article (except perhaps the index and the copyright page ; ) - I cannot recommend it more highly. Inside the cover there is an impressive list of endorsements by many well-known Orthodox Bishops.
