Christian all my life and is still learning

« on: April 22, 2014, 12:24:59 PM »

Hi all,
just wanted to know your opinion on this study Bible http://books.google.lt/books?id=KAh2OOGPsMMC&printsec=frontcover&dq=Orthodox+Bible+Study&hl=lt&sa=X&ei=D51WU7vIIqS24wTPpIDIAw&ved=0CDgQ6wEwAA#v=onepage&q=Orthodox%20Bible%20Study&f=false

Basically, Im looking for an easy to read and study Orthodox Bible, in easy to understand English language.


I believe in one God the Father and His Son the Messiah, the Savior of all the people

Really that is your best, and perhaps only, option. The nkjv is easy enough to read, there is some basic commentary and short essays or write-ups, and so far as I recall the other Orthodox Bibles in English are not really study bibles in any significant sense (the possible exception being the Holy Apostles Convent edition, but that's not nearly as easy to read). Like any Bible translation/edition there are shortcomings, but I would think that it would work quite well for most people.

I would strongly recommend Orthodoxy and the Religion of the Future by Fr Seraphim Rose.

This is a common topic here, so you might want to review these threads, the first of which is quite recent:

Orthodox Study Bibles

Orthodox Study Bible: OO and EO perspectives

Evidence of neo-Protestantism in the Orthodox Study Bible (A discussion of the merits/shortcomings of the OSB's study materials. I neither affirm nor deny the title of the thread.)

Orthodox Study Bible (A 2003 discussion of the NT only edition)

As I usually do with these discussions, I caution the reader to not take too seriously the posturing about which translation is best and to instead consider which Bible they are more likely to read often, regardless of study notes.

Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

And again I will say that it should be available online free as are the other commentary Bibles. I am sorry I cannot do more to make this happen, however maybe God willing.

The Lord gathers his sheep, I fear I am a goat. Lord have mercy.

"A Christian is someone who follows and worships a perfectly good God who revealed his true face through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth.“
