    Missing Icon Illustrations?

    The text is well set up, but glossy illustrations of icons were interspersed in the pages of the hard copy. They aren't in this NOOK edition. For the price of the volume, I think that they should be.

    It was a long time coming, but worth the wait

    As a Greek Orthodox Christian, it is wonderful to finally have a complete Bible with explanations from the Orthodox perspective in English. The interpretations for this Study Bible are based on the Septuagint version of the Old Testament which was written in Greek and the original New Testament which was written in Greek). Each chapter of the book starts out with the author, the year it was written, the major themes of the chapter, and an outline of the chapter. Included are articles that explain how Orthodox teachings relate to scripture. On every page, there are footnotes which explain the scripture based on the teachings of the early church fathers. There is a concordance in the back, as well as a glossary. Also, there are beautiful icons throughout the book. In addition to the bible, there are also morning and evening prayers.

    Highly recommend to any Orthodox Christian or seeker of Christian theology and Scripture

    I can look any specific Scripture passage or just read about the history of the Orthodox Church, Christianity, and the Apostles, Acts, or Revelation through topics or articles or end notes.

    more from this reviewer

    this study bible is enlightening.

    This study Bible compares the 3 Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox Bibles. This study bible breaks down the Old Testament with language that you can understand. It also does the same with the New Testament. I am studying Scripture and this is a great reference book.
