Just received this in the mail. It's really great. I'm a seminary student, and I was looking to buy a bible that had the Greek and Hebrew in the same book, so I wouldn't have to haul two books, PLUS an English translation everywhere I go. This one is cheaper than Biblia Sacra, and is more helpful to me than Biblia Sacra would have been.
The Hebrew text is the BHS, and the greek text, for the most part, follows the Novum Testamentum Graece (there are footnotes if there's a variant). The most helpful parts of this volume are:
1. Proper names in the Hebrew Bible are in lighter gray. No more endlessly flipping through the lexicon only to realize that it was a name the whole time.
2. Greek words used 30 times or less, and Hebrew words used 100 times or less are footnoted. This makes reading through the text easier and smoother.

It's great, and fairly inexpensive.

I have owned both of the separate components of this book, the Reader's Greek NT and the Reader's Hebrew OT. It is great to have them both "under one roof" now. The paper quality is good, the single-column setting is nice, and the maps are great. The footnoted definitions are both helpful and stimulating: helpful because they give you the lexical form and definition, stimulating because they don't parse the word for you.

The only problem with this book is its cover. "Fine-grain black European leather" sounds like something nice, but it's not. The cover is cheap, thin, and inferior to the duo-tone covers on the Reader's NT and OT.

Nevertheless, this is a great resource - highly recommended for pastors and seminarians.

'A Reader's Hebrew and Greek Bible' (RHGB), published by Zondervan, combines the celebrated A Reader's Greek New Testament: 2nd Edition and A Reader's Hebrew Bible into a handsome single volume which vastly improves portability and ease of use. This edition, edited by A. P. Brown II and B. W. Smith (Hebrew Tanakh), and R. J. Goodrich and A. L. Lukaszewski (Greek New Testament), aesthetically features black, fine-grain European leather, crisp, manageable pages, and readily intelligible font on a clean interface.

The text of the Hebrew Tanakh ("Old Testament") is based on the Leningrad Codex (L). Regrettably, it contains no text-critical notes. However, at the bottom portion of each page, provided glosses are intended to aid the reader in ameliorating comprehensibility of the Hebrew phraseology. Understand that these are not necessarily complete lexical definitions, but merely glosses which suggest the particular sense(s) seemingly employed within a given context. The glosses, according to the book's introduction (pp. xviii-xviv), are based on The Hebrew and Aramaic Lexicon of the Old Testament (HALOT), the Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew and English Lexicon (BDB-HEL) and, in some cases, "alternative lexical sources." Additionally, the definition of some infrequently (100 times or less) occurring Hebrew terms are footnoted.

The intent of this Bible is to increase the reader's ability to pick up the Greek/Hebrew texts and read without a continual need to refer to lexicons and look up unfamiliar vocabulary, and for this purpose the Reader's Hebrew and Greek Bible excels!

The Greek New Testament text used is that underlying the Today's New International Version (TNIV) New Testament. There are places where this text differs from the main reading presented in the United Bible Society (UBS) text, based upon decisions made by the TNIV translators to utilize some of the multitude of textual variants detailed in the UBS text. In each of these instances, the TNIV and UBS texts are listed side-by-side in a footnote for reader's to compare. The Hebrew Old Testament text comes from the Westminster Leningrad Codex, which differs from the standard BHS critical edition in only a handful of places (e.g. only 12 consonantal variations total). The definitions used in the footnotes and mini-lexicons at the end of each testament are derived from the standard lexica--BDAG, Louw-Nida, LSJ, and Trenchard for the NT; HALOT and BDB for the OT.

As far as the mechanics of this Bible go, the leather used is very finely grained but very thin. While I expect it to loosen/soften up with use, out of the box the cover is fairly stiff. Overall, I would say the leather is of higher quality than that typically appearing as "Genuine Leather" in most contemporary Bibles but not nearly as nice as one would find in a high-end (e.g. Cambridge) Bible. Only time will tell if this thin real leather will stand up as well as the more robust Duo-tone covers used in the separate volumes. The pages are (thankfully) not ultra-thin and are gilded in silver, which nicely accents the black leather cover. The binding of this nearly 2.
