I would love the OSB available also.  I am waiting for the EOB (Eastern Orthodox Bible) to come out also.

Floyd Johnson:
  From the site given by Mr Johnson:

The Old Testament (in progress) is based on the Greek text of the Old Testament (Septuagint / LXX) with all major Masoretic and Dead Sea Scroll variants documented in the footnotes.

 

The New Testament (completed and available) is based on the official ecclesiastical text published in 1904 by the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople (again documenting all significant variants to the Critical Text, Majority Text and Textus Receptus). It also provides extensive footnotes and Appendices dealing with significant verses such as Matthew 16:18; John 1:1,18; John 15:26. The Patriarchal text was selected on Mount Athos from among a large number of reliable ecclesiastical manuscripts and appears to be identical or similar to Minuscule 1495 (KR subgroup).

[Thus this will give us a new translation of the LXX and document all variants to the Critical, Majority, Receptus and Masoretic plus Dead Sea - WOW - Add me to the list that want it!]

The Orthodox Study Bible (Nelson) has been criticized by many Orthodox, both for the translation (OT is from an evangelical Anthiochian Orthodox group formed in 1976; NT is NKJV) and for the lack of reference to the Church Fathers in the note commentary (but Logos probably would omit the notes and commentary when publishing this study Bible). 

I bought this publication and am very disappointed. I think some of the other projects mentioned above will prove more representative of mainstream Orthodox belief and practice.

If you omit the notes and commentary from a Study Bible what do you have left?  

My comment "The Old Testament (in progress) is based on the Greek text of the Old Testament (Septuagint / LXX) with all major Masoretic and Dead Sea Scroll variants documented in the footnotes." was why I wanted it.  This would add to the notes on differences as found in the NET Bible [or so I thought]

To see more complete Bible Study materials from St. Anthanasius see http://www.stathanasius.org/resources/bible-study-downloads/

These are based in the Church Fathers.

There are several Orthodox Study Bible projects. I eagerly await the EOB project's completion. 

The OP referred specifically to the Thomas Nelson product; my comments are relevant only to that edition. I think it is currently the only one on the market. One major criticism is that the New Testament is based on the Received Text manuscripts, not the Byzantine texts used in the Orthodox services.

For those of you who haven't yet found out, there is now an Orthodox suggestion at Logos' new Uservoice site for prepubs: Add more Orthodox works, and also one for Patristics: Add more Patristic works. Please go add your votes. And then add the remainder of your votes to other suggestions -- preferably mine.Big Smile

(There is also a new Uservoice site for CP's, with another ten new votes for you to spend: http://communitypricing.uservoice.com/forums/183260-general/filters/top.)
