The first-ever full-length Orthodox Study Bible in English 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. The Orthodox Study Bible, created by The Orthodox Study Bible Old Testament Project, produced by St. Athanasius, and published by Thomas Nelson, uses the New King James Version of the Bible as the basis for a fresh translation of the Septuagint text. The Septuagint is the Greek version of the Bible used by Christ, the Apostles, and the early church. Also available as a Leatherbound volume.
