Comments: „The Old Testament is a revision of Sir Lancelot C. L. Brenton´s translation of the Greek Septuagint.“ But, regrettably, this is not anywhere mentioned in this edition.

Data: Softcover quarto, (4), 552 & (4) pp; Scripture text in double column paragraph–wise; no further extras. The biblical texts are preceded by half a page "A Message from the translator, Paul W. Esposito, Δουλος του Θεου [Servant of God], Stauros Ministries"; some extracts:

»This second edition has many revisions, including a new paragraph format, subject headings, and quotation marks for the Old Testament. This combination of Old and New testaments is the first of its kind, pairing the Greek Septuagint translation of the Old Testament with the "Majority Text“, which is a text compiled out of all existing Greek manuscripts (over 5000 have been discovered).«

Psalm 151 is added to the Psalter. As there´s no index to the Biblical Books, the reader will be surprised neither to find any of the Deuterocanonical (Apocryphal) books, nor the Greek additions to e.g. Esther and Daniel. So, like the „Septuagint Bible“ of Chas. Thomson & Chas. A. Muses, P. W. Esposito´s version entirely follows the Hebrew canon of Scripture.

N. B.: Readers are reminded that this book breathes the digital age; a magnifier is a good solution for carefree reading.
