There is a paradox in American Christianity. According to Gallup, nearly eight in ten Americans regard the Bible as either the literal word of God or inspired by God. At the same time, surveys have revealed gaps in these same Americans' biblical literacy. These discrepancies reveal the complex relationship between American Christians and Holy Writ, a subject that is widely acknowledged but rarely investigated. The Bible in American Life is a sustained, collaborative reflection on the ways Americans use the Bible in their personal lives. It also considers how other influences, including religious communities and the Internet, shape individuals' comprehension of scripture. Employing both quantitative methods (the General Social Survey and the National Congregations Study) and qualitative research (historical studies for context), The Bible in American Life provides an unprecedented perspective on the Bible's role outside of worship, in the lived religion of a broad cross-section of Americans both now and in the past. The Bible has been central to Christian practice, and has functioned as a cultural touchstone From the broadest scale imaginable, national survey data about all Americans, down to the smallest details, such as the portrayal of Noah and his ark in children's Bibles, this book offers insight and illumination from scholars across the intellectual spectrum. It will be useful and informative for scholars seeking to understand changes in American Christianity as well as clergy seeking more effective ways to preach and teach about scripture in a changing environment.

Here is a nice, large, easy-to-read hardcover edition of the acclaimed Classic Orthodox Bible. The English of the praying Orthodox Church, the English of the prayers and Liturgies, the English of the common Orthodox Christians and the hymn of Scripture itself, is the English of Thee's and Thou's, not the street, the TV news, or the blog. And even if they can't put a finger on it, there is something more that is beautiful about the older classic language. As one literature professor said, "The problem with the King James Version is the translators' shaky grasp of Hebrew. The problem with all modern versions is the translators' increasingly shaky grasp of English." And there's more to it than that. The Classic Orthodox Bible has, as its foundation, Sir Lancelot Brenton's translation of the Greek Old Testament, the Septuagint. All other known translations that revised Sir Lancelot have revised his language to be newer and more modern; though this is not an important distinction, this text revised Sir Lancelot to be very slightly more archaic and read more authentically like the King James Version. There have been multiple changes made, though not all that many for a new Bible version. In any case the attempt was made to cut with the grain rather than against it, and to preserve and enhance a rendering that is the English of the praying Orthodox Church. A number of metaphors present themselves to the simple Christian trying to choose rightly from all the Bible versions available: there are murky waters, or a dizzying array, or a labyrinth. Whatever name is given to this confusing task, the Classic Orthodox Bible comes with a roadmap that comments not just itself, the Classic Orthodox Bible (COB), but also the Eastern / Greek Orthodox Bible (EOB), English Standard Version (ESV), King James Version (KJV, also called the Authorized Version or AV), the Message, New English Translation of the Septuagint (NETS), New International Version (NIV), New Jerusalem Bible (NJB), New King James Version (NKJV), New Living Translation (NLT), Orthodox Study Bible (OSB), and Revised Standard Versiosn (RSV). But the advice is simple. If you only read version, read the Orthodox Study Bible, from http: //tinyurl.com/orthodox-study-bible. But if you read more, as there is good reason, read the Classic Orthodox Bible.
