    I had a person in my church give me some verses taken out of "The Apostle's Bible". They were trying to prove the point of eschotology that one should be a-millenial. I was wondering what others know about this Bible. Is it a valid translation? I really am not interested in getting into a KJVO debate about this, I already know what KJVO people feel about all other translations. If some others could post their impressions of this Bible, it would be appreciated.

    Apostles' Bible, English Septuagint Version of the Holy Bible, Copyright © 2003 By Paul W. Esposito

    This translation is a revision of Sir Lancelot C. L. Brenton's 1851 translation. I've used it online and not found much value in it.

    Dr Bob,

    Could you expound on the value statement? Does this Bible have problems? Why? I really need some input.
    Thanks

    I have a LXX and it is interlinear Greek (actual Greek/English line by line. The Apostle's is not as accurate in translating the Greek into English by any stretch. With the resource I have, I guess I just didn't see a lot of value in the Apostles Bible.
