Wonderful Superb Quality Study Bible,
This review is from: Orthodox Study Bible-OE-With Some NKJV: Ancient Christianity Speaks to Today's World (Hardcover)
This is an invaluable Bible for every denomination and especially for the whole Orthodox Christian world.
The result of a huge amount of hard work of very high quality by a team of Orthodox Theologians, Clergy, Academics etc.
The language is a easy to read and understand while not compromising the meaning and intention with modernisms that detract from the purpose and intention
Provides many useful articles inserts and references.
Each book is given a summary covering the contents, intention, historical background etc.
Combines a lectionary of daily readings, concordance, and many other useful tools and cross references.
Some of the articles clarify extremely important aspects of our faith, life, church and doctrine which are clear, give good direction and understanding and act as a valuable guide to our lives in this increasingly secular world so divorced from faith in God.
One of the unique strengths of this work is to show how the Old Testament and New Testament are linked and cross referenced showing the fulfillment of the Old Testament in the incarnation of God as our Saviour Jesus Christ and the work of the Holy Trinity from the beginning of time until now and into the future leading to the Second and Glorious coming of Christ. This makes such a Bible an invaluable spiritual guide helping us live today as well as preparing us for the future.
This bible comes in 2 versions, Old & New Testament & Psalms, or just New Testament and Psalms.
It is very practical, but also very sound ensuring that the mistakes, controversial changes and ommissions over the centuries are excluded from this excellent Holy Bible.
I cannot recommend it enough to any student of the Bible or any one who simply wants to approach God and establish a close and loving relationship with the God the Father Son and Holy Spirit.
