The OSB Old Testament has gotten pushed back and pushed back. Is there any physical evidence that the OSB Old Testament will come out this Pascha, such as a completed translation of any book from the Septuagint? Any relevant and reliable intel would be much appreciated.

Peace.

According to their LXX.org site, they were finishing up submitting the stuff almost a year ago, and are just waiting for the stuff to be edited/set, printed and distributed. Books do sometimes take an absurd amount of time to get published.

I believe that a complete Orthodox Bible in the English language will be a monumental event in the history of Orthodoxy in the English-speaking world.

What I wonder is . . . why has it taken so long?

Because Slavonic and Greek versions (among others) of the Orthodox texts have been in existence for centuries, and until recently--with the recent surge in English-speaking converts, as well as the gradual decline in the number of cradle Orthodox who can read/understand the languages of the old countries--such a translation was not something that was needed among the communities of Orthodox believers.  They had their Bible, it just happened to not be in English, but rather their other language.

I just tried that site and it is down. When you read that, was it lately? I was just trying to check out their site to see if there were any updates.

I don't think it was a recent update, I think it was from about 11 months ago.

The site is up today.  There is a short video inroduction available on the site that briefly explains what the septuagint is.  The last up date actually says that the last pieces of the translation was being sent to the publisher.  It noted that it would take 10 to 14 months to be fully published and will be out by Pascha 2007. Given the timetable established and publication time, I don't see why it would not be out by then.

I heard or read somewhere that the publishing had been delayed even further and that they were now looking at releasing the finished product as late as winter 2008.

According to my sources, which consist of one of the translators who wishes to remain anonymous, they are still releasing it on Pascha of 2007. Enjoy!

I am in anticipation for the OSB Septuagint mostly for its commentary on the Old Testament. As for the text itself, from what I've read, it will be an edited version of the NKJV with Apocrypha added. Given that I'm already satisfied with the NKJV Old Testament as it is, I'm uncertain as to whether I'd pay more than twenty-five dollars for the new OSB.

I'd have to hear some feedback on whether the footnotes and articles have improved--i.e., are we done simply restating what the verse just said, and can we please put patristic commentary down there instead?
