The Orthodox Study Bible

Katherine and I picked up a copy of The Orthodox Study Bible: Ancient Christianity Speaks to Today's World. Having just purchased it, we haven't had a lot of time to look through it, but what I've seen looks very good.

The Old Testament translation is from the St Athanasius Academy Septuagint -- most Bibles have Old Testament translations of the Hebrew. Included is the Deuterocanon! This will truly be a blessing.

Throughout the notes, one hears the voice of the first ten centuries of the church.

The Church year is also noted throughout, and services of Morning Prayers, Evening Prayers, and a lectionary are also included.

Check it out at your local Orthodox bookstore!
