    I love that this is offered as a PDF. I'm not qualified to give an expert opinion on the content, but I really like the simplicity and depth of the scholarship (i.e. footnotes, introductions, and appendices) that is included with this NT translation of the official Patriarchal Greek text. The wording generally flows very well, and the few spots that seem awkward are almost always footnoted to let you know more about how difficult it was to translate the original into English. My only gripe is that the PDF has no internal bookmarks to help you jump to a certain book, chapter, or article. This handicap is partially overcome if you view it in Adobe Digital Editions, though.

    Overall this translation is needed, as in the endless sea of English Bibles there are precious few that give an Orthodox perspective. My biggest gripe is that often extra words are imposed by the translator to clarify meaning and placed in parentheses, but this is so frequent that is really distracts from the flow of the reading. Also, Cleenewerck's scholarship seldom delves beneath surface-level analysis and aping more qualified researchers; he seems to contribute little himself. But utilizing the great minds that he has, we have here a workable version of the New Testament which is far truer to Orthodox theological concepts than Protestant and Roman Catholic renderings. I'm more interested to see the Old Testament based on the Septuagint when that is completed, but for now this serves as a nice compliment to other New Testament resources in illuminating the proto-Orthodox undertones of the text. I say buy a copy at least to encourage the production of the Septuagint-based Old... More > Testament in English. If this one falls flat, me might not feel motivated to finish the job.< Less
