Reviews - What do customers think about NRSV Wesley Study Bible-Tan/Green Imitation Leather?

Great to Have a Bible with Wesleyan Study Notes  Mar 15, 2009
As a United Methodist pastor, it is exciting to see this Bible being recieved so well. I feared that this Bible might be too "scholarly" for the general congregational population but I have been pleasantly surprised to see that the study notes have been written for the average reader. It is wonderful to have a Bible with study notes that are steeped in the Wesleyan theological tradition that are accessible to most readers. I am recommending this Bible from the pulpit of my church and will continue to do what I can to get this Bible into the hands of as many folks as I can. I have studied personally with some of the contributors to this Bible and am looking forward to discovering all that it has to offer in the years to come.
 
Quick and practical study bible for the Methodist masses  Feb 3, 2009
My first impressions of this new study bible (just got it today) are quite positive. Physically, the binding is a surprisingly supple and attractive leatherette for the price. The bible is a nice size, with large pages and not too thick. It lays nicely in the lap or hand for reading. The typography inside is nothing exciting, but clean and readable. There are lots of color maps at the back and an index to the two kinds of special notes (described below). Alas, I already noticed a typo in the introduction to Matthew.

I have several other study bibles, from the NIV study bible (my favorite because of its charts, references, and resources) to the NLT study bible (also lots of goodies, a little more conservative) to various NRSV study bibles (often overly academic or liberal). This Wesley Study Bible seems to be aimed a little differently. In the tradition of John Wesley's own notes on the bible, the editors and contributors have provided an academically solid, yet practical commentary aimed squarely at working preachers and the folks in the pews.

There are three types of notes: (1) Running footnotes at the bottom of each page which do a verse-by-verse job highlighting important points in scripture and quickly explaining their significance. These often refer to other scriptures, tracing important themes throughout the bible. Occasional references are made to John Wesley's own sermon and notes. (2) Pull-out boxes for Wesleyan Core Terms such as "prevenient grace" - the grace of God which enables us poor sinners to freely respond to God's offer of salvation. (3) Life Application Topic pull-outs which are mini sermons or devotions on topics like mercy, service, true riches, and the wages of sin.

The scholarship is pretty middle-of-the-road (as was Wesley). It has a much higher view of scriptural authority than the extremes of the "Jesus was a very nice man and we should try to be like him" liberals, but doesn't see every word and punctuation mark as carved into stone by God himself without human intermediary as the fundamentalists seem to suggest.

If you are looking for an in-depth academic study bible, this ain't it. If you are looking for a platform for extreme viewpoints to the right or left, this ain't it. But if you are looking for a satisfying reading bible with thoughtful and thought-provoking notes and commentary, this is the ticket. It is going to earn a place next to my NIV study bible on the shelf.
 
Not Enough Features, too liberal  Jan 30, 2009
This Bible turned out to be a real let down. I have used The Wesley Bible (NKJV) and have lamented the fact that it is out of print. The Reflecting God Study Bible (NIV) followed, but it didn't last long. I was excited to hear about The Wesley Bible being released. This Bible has several weaknesses. There are no cross references; there is no concordance. The annotations are not indexed. Without these features, I find it difficult to see how I or anyone else could use it in ministry settings. I also believe that evangelical, orthodox Wesleyans like myself will not be comfortable with the view that there are multiple Isaiahs or the interpretation of the world powers in Daniel. I just wish Nelson would put the old Wesley Bible back in print!
