Dear friend of St. Athanasius Academy:
OSB: THE ORTHODOX STUDY BIBLE
THE REMARKABLE BENEFITS OF HEARING AND READING THE SCRIPTURES
How time flies! It's been five years since The Orthodox Study Bible was first published, and unless new to these newsletters from the Academy, you are no doubt aware it was under the auspices of this Academy that the OSB Bible was prepared. It took a mammoth amount of work, thousands of dedicated hours, and over five years to complete the final translations. It includes the added benefit of very helpful study notes for Orthodox Christians. Three of the main contributors to the project, Fr. Jack Sparks, Fr. Richard Ballew, and Fr. Peter Gillquist have gone on to be with the Lord. May their memory be eternal!
Was all the effort worth it? Absolutely! So many have been touched by it. Many have been encouraged in their faith in God by reading this Bible while many others are coming to faith through the OSB.
See the attached PDF files for this month's full teaching and to order the study booklets.
