A review of the Orthodox Study Bible, ISBN: 978-0-7180-0359-3 (9780718003593). The book contains the New King James Version (NKJV) New Testament and an Old Testament modified in the direction of the Septuagint, along with notes, book introductions, and articles about Eastern Orthodox theology and piety.
This hardback has a glued binding [I’ve been told that newer editions are sewn], very thin pages, lots of ghosting, and an Old Testament text that frequently departs from the Septuagint; but on the plus side the notes and articles are interesting and informative.
By the way, as of 21 December 2018, this is by far my most disliked video! Yet the comments are largely positive. If you dislike this video, please explain why in the comments!
This video reviewed the 2nd printing, from 2008. I recently reviewed the 21st printing, from 2018: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=We-LP4LW22M . The more recent video includes more examples of the Orthodox Study Bible straying from the Septuagint.
I posted a review of the 1993 Orthodox Study Bible New Testament and Psalms here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3l6Y4Jf8I_g .
