The OSB is not meant as a replacement to the Liturgy, or the Lectionary, or the Fathers, or the Councils, or the Prayers, etc. (as some commentators seem to think it was intended).
It is the entire OrthodoxBible, including the OT which is either translated from the Septuagint or at least modified where the Septuagine calls for it (the Septuagint being the Bible of Christ and the early Church).
The Scofield studyBible was one of the first Bibles with notes and the interpretations went a long way to solidify dispensational theology in America as the prominent evangelical theology.
To attain these goals, specific attention was given to the biblical interpretation of the fathers of the ancient and undivided Church, and to the consensus of the Seven Ecumenical or Church-wide Councils of Christendom, held from the fourth to eighth centuries.
The prayer of the editors and contributors of The OrthodoxStudyBible is that it presents an understandable Bible text and commentary to (1) English-speaking Orthodox Christians the world over and to (2) non-Orthodox readers interested in learning more about the faith of the historic Orthodox Church.
My feeling is that many Orthodox people simply don't want to have to think for themselves (that is, to explore the mind of the Church in humility and prayer, seeking answers to questions about which the Fathers said little), but rather prefer a sort of cut-and-paste mentality.
