Reviews - What do customers think about Biblia Sacra Utriusque Testamenti Editio Hebraica Et Graeca: Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) and Greek New Testament (Hebrew Edition)?
The greatest book ever made Feb 26, 2008
This is a wonderful treasure to have the original languages in one volume. aside from the infinitely valuable contents between the cover it is of good construction for it's depth. the spine tends to wear because of the weight of the pages. the hard bond cover is quite fitting. I cannot over emphasize the need of a covering that holds the Book in place, whether it be a zip up Bible covering or a homemade leather one. From all my friends who actively use their Bib Sac they highly recommend the covering it is a sad sight to see something that was once new 4 months before totally covered in duct-tape barely holding together. take care of it study it's contents know it and Christ and you will be the richest person on the planet.
Nice to have two-in-one...but the print sure is small. Jul 6, 2007
I bought this to have the Greek New Testament and Hebrew Old Testament in one binding. (Ironically, now I belong to a church that considers the _Septuagint_ its canonical Old Testament...but anyway.) Since Hebrew is read right-to-left, it works out nicely; the New Testament starts at the front cover and the Hebrew at the back cover.
Note that the Greek New Testament is the Nestle-Aland text, not the UBS one. To me that's a point in its favor. The text is the same either way, but Nestle-Aland includes a greater variety of textual variants (but fewer witnesses for each), and doesn't include the "grading" system of the UBS text. You'll have to decide for yourself whether you prefer the Nestle-Aland or UBS font, but I find the Nestle-Aland font here quite readable, not as spidery as the UBS font.
The Hebrew, meanwhile, is the standard BHS, complete with the introduction pretentiously written in Latin and all that.
The biggest drawback is that the font is pretty small. On the Greek side it's not so bad; but the Hebrew in particular is quite a bit smaller than the standard-size BHS. It's readable, but plan to have good light to read by. Compare the cover dimensions, 8.2 x 5.5, with the dimensions of the "full-size" edition, 9.3 x 6.6. The font of this edition is 75% or less the size of the full-size font. You may want to find a sample BHS page online and print it in those two sizes to get an idea before you buy.
The binding is as good as could be expected on a book of this size. The book is a bit awkward to handle, but if you don't mistreat it, it should last. It lies open and flat very nicely indeed, even at the end pages near the covers.
