What North American Hierarchs have said...
"...I wish to express to you my undivided support and enthusiasm for this ongoing project. I look forward to the opportunity when I can devote the necessary time to the project. This is an important, indeed historical, work of scholarship. I offer you my encouragement to continue to meet your goal of giving a completed manuscript to the publisher in the late summer of 2004."
"The holy work you are undertaking is of vital importance to the future of the Orthodox faith in the English speaking world, especially here in North America. At a time when Christian groups and others are subjecting our people to so many unorthodox materials, it is crucial to our future to have a Bible with interpretation founded on the faith of our fathers."
"All Orthodox Christians throughout the English-speaking world are to be grateful for the dedicated efforts of the many persons who have continued to labor on this important project. Grateful thanks should also be expressed to those who have supported this work.
