From Accordance:

We are pleased to announce the release of the Orthodox Study Bible Notes for the Accordance Library! This unique study Bible, offering insights and commentary from the early centuries of Christianity, will be of interest not only to Eastern Orthodox Christians but also to anyone interested in church history.

The content of the OSB–including annotations, introductions, and articles–is written at a vocabulary level of a high school graduate to communicate “the treasures of the Orthodox biblical tradition with clergy and laypeople desirous of understanding their Christian beliefs and making them accessible to others” (Introduction). The notes and commentary emphasize the major themes of the Christian faith, giving special attention to the following:

  1. The Holy Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit
  2. The Incarnation: The Divine Son of God becoming Man
  3. The Centrality of the Church, the “dwelling place of God in the Spirit” (Eph 2:22)
  4. The Virtues: God’s call to His people to live righteous and holy lives in Christ
