Overview

The Septuagint was the primary Greek translation of the Hebrew Scriptures, often quoted by the apostles and the early Church Fathers. The Orthodox Church has continued to use this version of the Old Testament exclusively since the time of Christ. The Holy Orthodox Bible presents Peter Papoutsis’ fresh English translations of the Septuagint texts, based on accepted Orthodox biblical and liturgical materials.

After a visit to the Holy Land where he learned about the Septuagint’s importance, attorney Peter Papoutsis sought an English version of Septuagint he could read for himself. Finding no accurate English translation, or one based on texts authorized by the Orthodox Church, Papoutsis spent the next several years learning to read and translate Septuagint Greek.

These nine volumes present the fruit of his labor: readable, English versions of the Septuagint books. A work still in progress—this 9-volume resource includes volumes that are yet to be released. However when completed, The Holy Orthodox Bible will offer a complete translation of the Orthodox Old Testament in a single, downloadable resource.

In the Logos edition, this resource is enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.
