Gratitude is due to Father Jack Sparks and countless other Orthodox scholars who have carried this project through to its conclusion. Fourteen years since the publication of THE ORTHODOX STUDY BIBLE: NEW TESTAMENT AND PSALMS, we now have for the first time in the English-speaking Orthodox world, a Bible that conforms to the Orthodox Tradition's own scriptural usages and expectations: primarily, an Old Testament translation based on the Septuagint. Like the New Testament owned by many, the Old Testament will contain notes and helps to aid Orthodox Christians in reading the Bible with the mind of the Church.
An Eighth Day View:
The FIRST EVER "Orthodox Study Bible" presents the Bible of the early church and the church of the early Bible.
Orthodox Christianity is the face of ancient Christianity to the modern world and embraces the second largest body of Christians in the world. In this first-of-its-kind study Bible, the Bible is presented with commentary from the ancient Christian perspective that speaks to those Christians who seek a deeper experience of the roots of their faith.
