Added this annotated copy of the NRSV as a resource for Bible study. The Bible itself is printed in a large enough font. Book introductions are in a very small, plain font. Paper is bright white. Almost dropped the book because finish on the hardcover is a little slippery, considering the weight of the book. Book introductions appear to take a modern critical approach and have the advantage of explaining their reasoning. Has more maps covering more specific time periods than does my hand-sized reader Oxford NRSV.
This Bible has it all. It is easy to read and easy to follow. The book summaries and explanations add to the understanding of each book. I highly recommend this as an addition to anyone's study library.
I have been using the New Oxford Annotated Bible since January 1976. It is, in my estimation, the best study Bible available. Over the past twenty-five years, my wife and I have given more than 500 NOABs to high school seniors in the parishes we have served as graduation gifts. The annotations are filled with useful information, allowing the reader to interpret the passage without coersion of theological bias that is apparent in many study Bibles. The downside is that the print in the fourth edition is smaller than previous editions. Unfortunately this is the price to be paid as more and more information becomes available between editions. That downside, however, should not prevent one from purchasing the fourth edition. Oxford is to be commended for its standard of excellence regarding this Bible.
