—"As one who has not bought into the conventional wisdom concerning 'recovery of the lost text,' I find it refreshing that the Eastern Church has available a Greek text which, while probably not perfect, is as close as we may come to the original today. Instead of one determined by a vote of 5 or 6 scholars, this text is the one commonly received by the Greek and Russian churches from time immemorial. As a Protestant Christian I delight in honoring my Orthodox friends who have preserved this text when the entire western church had defaulted to a translation, Jerome's Latin Vulgate, and now has widely accepted theories which do not accord with the historical record we have. For instance, a recent Greek edition in the west is done with the overt assumption that changes in the ancient text were done by men of good will, when the fathers repeatedly have written that there were intentional corruptions which had crept in as early as the first few centuries. I trust Christians in the Nicene age to be better judges of the original than Americans in the twentieth century." Thomas E. Martin

—"This Beautiful book presents the Eastern Orthodox Church's traditional or patriarchal Greek text of the New Testament. [...] To this extent, it is useful to have direct access to the traditional text of one significant section of Christianity; and for the preservation of the Greek New Testament text, this is the most important part - the Greek Orthodox Church. [...] This Patriarchal Text appears to be mid-way between the MT and Textus Receptus. The book is a delightful reference for what the late Byzantium church used for its liturgy." Peter McGowan

    Coming from Byzantium and being used until our days in Greek speaking Orthodox Churches, this version is the most authoritative form of the original New Testament text.

    Illuminated with images of Byzantine manuscripts, photos of Churches of Athos Holy Mount and all of Greece, Orthodox Icons and various Orthodox style drawings, this edition features also a large typeface for easier reading. Even if you have the original Greek New Testament already, you may want to get also this edition for the pleasure of reading it in large fonts, its convenient formatting and the inspiring illumination.

    Reading the Bible in the Greek original we prepare conditions for a deeper understanding. "When one returns to the Greek," Oscar Wilde writes in De Profundis, "it is like going into a garden of lilies out of some narrow and dark house..."

    About 3850 words in the New Testament are found previous to the death of Aristotle, or about 80 percent of the whole vocabulary... showing an almost unexpected purity in the language of the New Testament... One is dealing here with a language which can be termed, at least in the broad sense, cultivated... — Kennedy, Sources of New Testament Greek
