A Treasure from Scribes Old, Not New

The Orthodox Study Bible: New Testament and Psalms
Nashville: Thomas Nelson Publishers, 1993.
(1,053 pages: $25.00, cloth)

reviewed by Peter Toon

This project was directed by Fr. Peter E. Gillquist, who worked for Thomas Nelson as a senior editor some years ago before he joined the Antiochian Orthodox Church. His own pilgrimage is told in Becoming Orthodox (revised edition, 1992). The introductory chapters and the notes for this study Bible were prepared at the St. Athanasius Orthodox Academy in Santa Barbara, California, before being looked over by a committee of some twenty-four Orthodox bishops, priests, and laity.

"Here we do not concede one square millimeter of territory to falsehood, folly, contemporary sentimentality, or fashion. We speak the truth, and let God be our judge. . . . Touchstone is the one committedly Christian conservative journal."
