The Eastern Orthodox Bible is a scholarly translation and edition of the Holy Scriptures based on the Patriarchal Greek Orthodox with extensive introductory material. Only the New Testament is available at this time. This New Testament text is based on the official ecclesiastical text published in 1904 by the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople (documenting all significant variants to the Critical Text, Majority Text and Textus Receptus). It also provides extensive footnotes. The main purpose of the EOB is to provide an accurate and easy-to-read English text of the Holy Scriptures that is suitable for use by Orthodox Christian communities and individuals, while providing an outstanding text for scholars.

I love it!!! The translation makes so much more sense!!! In the NKJV (which is used for the New Testament in the Orthodox Study Bible) it says "a smoking flax he will not quench" That makes no sense. In the Eastern Orthodox Bible, it says: "He will not put out a smoking wick" That is much clearer and much more easier to understand!!!
I love that this is available for iPhone. The only complain currently is that the Orthodox Lectionary isn't available on the app... It says "no text available" or something like that when you try to open it. This would be an amazing fix!
Brilliant Orthodox Bible. I particularly enjoy the Eastern Orthodox aesthetics and the clear translation of The New Testament. However, be warned that this Bible does not contain The Old Testament. There has been assurance the OT will be added at later date, but thus far that has not happened.
Σημαντική και αξιόλογη προσπάθεια μετάφρασης και εξήγησης της Γραφής, η οποία κάνει προσητή την συλλογή του Παρριαρχείου Κωνσταντινουπόλεως στους Αγγλόφωνους.
This app is really easy to use and navigate, specially when trying to look up verses. The translation has really grown on me and I now prefer using this one for readings and devotions. When I found out there was an app available as well, I was really happy.
This is basically a NKJV bible. If you have a problem with the NKJV, this version makes the same errors.
I have a hard copy of the Orthodox Study Bible but was looking for something a little more scholarly and little more authentically Eastern Christian. This App is what I was looking for, especially on a low budget.
Such an excellent app especially for a catechumen to start with because of the amount of written material one encounters. The layout keeps it straight, is easy to navigate as it is organized in such a manner as to be very helpful. And cheap! A hard bound Bible is about $40. This is well worth the price and twice that as the footnotes are precious.
This app is great and it makes navigating this translation of the Bible very easy. I also enjoy this developer's Orthodox Study Bible app, and hope that its handy "Today's Reading" feature gets ported over to this EOB app when possible (I assume the developer is waiting on the Old Testament translations to be completed). Regarding the EOB as a Bible translation, I have heard good things about its accuracy, though I myself am unqualified to evaluate this. I do though find it to be very readable and appreciate the extensive footnotes and introductions to each book. Would love to use both apps on my iPad too. Thank you for very easy to use and cleanly designed apps.
Nice job of finishing up the New Testament of the EOB. Hopefully the Old Testament and the Psalter will be ready soon. Landscape mode would a good idea too. In addition, can you make an option to display the footnote of a particular verse that is selected (instead of flipping the screen by tapping the I button on the top right)? God bless.
