Reviews - What do customers think about The New Oxford Annotated Bible with the Apocrypha?
Excellent Bible Mar 15, 2007
This is an excellent bible! It contains all the books accepted by the Greek Orthodox church (the additional books are placed at the end of the NT). The study notes are of a higer critical variety, but they can easily be ignored as you focus on the text.
Good copy of the Good Book Mar 8, 2007
I first bought the 3rd edition which is the NRSV, which was an AWESOME bible, and decided I wanted the 1st edition which is RSV. It's a good, high quality Bible, but not as scholarly as the 3rd edition. If you just want a good translation, this is the Bible for you.
Leather Oxford Bible Feb 25, 2007
It's a very nice book, and I am happy to have it. I would only suggest the addition of more ribbon bookmarks.
Oxford RSV still sets the standard Jan 13, 2007
This ecumenical study Bible using the RSV text still sets the standard for high scholarship in the notes and accuracy of translation. The editors and contributors are among the greatest biblical scholars of the last fifty years. While the NRSV has updated to gender inclusive language, the RSV idiom still retains the poetic flow that made it an English language favorite. The format is far more user friendly and portable in comparison to the later Oxford Annotated Bibles using the NRSV. Another plus is the inclusion of the Apocrypha at the end of the New Testament instead of following the Hebrew Bible. The typeset is very readable, and the overall workmanship of this hardcover is outstanding. Put this one on your shelf.
Great for perspective. Dec 8, 2006
A great Bible and very good format! I love the old RSV! The NOAB is great there are some for lack of a better word "liberal" notes. Though I am conservative it really does not bother me or stop me from letting the merits of this Bible outweigh it theological weaknesses. Well worth buying! Grace and Peace!
