Shame Fr.Chris you have brought this thread completely off topic with your divine humor  laugh back to the topic. To rephrase the first question Cleveland what were your first thoughts about the OSB so far?

Yes, and it actually is based on the LXX.

In Antonio Banderas voice It looks better than I thought, but I must look into the various annotations carefully.  Oh yes, I must.

Father - you doubted my impressions?  I do a spot-on Archbishop Demetrios, and a pretty good Ketsetzis.  And the aforementioned Mr. Banderas as well.

Does anyone know if the leather bound version is out yet?  If not, does anyone know when it will be released?

Our church has a few copies in our library now. I didn't see any leather bound ones, though.

I don't think it's out yet.  No clue, but I think it's coming out soon.

Wow! We got our 2 cases out on display in the bookstore yesterday, and Pr. Lori reported we sold 23 Bibles then and there!

My women's study group planned on doing a new unit, where we actually study the formation of the Canon of Scripture...and I couldn't ask for better timing than to finally be able to point out to them this Bible.

Glory to God!

It looks as if Thomas has started a thread in Reviews for discussing reviews of the OSB.  Orthodox Study Bible (Septugient) is out

Amazon has the best prices, but they say they are not getting the OSB in until June.  Does anyone know why that is?  Has anyone heard that they may get them in earlier?

Our parish actually got the leatherbound the week before I opened the topic  OSB in the Review area.  We got the hardbounds the next week, there was about $16 difference in their price and I did not see much difference except for the cover in the paper quality between the two. See  review for my thoughts about it.
