James5 Stars Out Of 5My Favorite Study BibleJanuary 23, 2015JamesQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Produced by an interdenominational team, this study bible features the work of such well-known scholars as Eugene Boring (author of the Interpretation commentary volume on Revelation), James Crenshaw (Duke Divinity), Joel B. Green (Wheaton College, formerly Dean of Academics at Asbury Seminary, General Editor of the Common English Bible), Norman Gottwald (_The Hebrew Bible: A Socio-Literary Introduction_), Pheme Perkins. Mary-Anne Tolbert, Phyllis Trible and others. It contains the expected book introductions with ouline, General Articles (with brief bibliographies), chronologies and full-color maps. The notes strike a good balance between details and a big-picture view of the narrative. This balance is aided by the inclusion of "Excurses"; sidelines that highlight notable topics and themes such as Creation and Chaos (Genesis 1) and "Special Notes" (such as the one at 1 Sam 2:9 about different views of Divine justice in Hebrew Bible texts). The notes attempt to put the modern-day reader into the thought-world of the Bible's first hearers and are scholarly without being abstruse. The commentators strive to maintain focus on the "forest" and not get lost in the "trees" - I've read other study Bibles and commentaries that I thought papered over the texts with the writers' pet theological ideas or were too fixated on some private, narrow scholarly interest (Oxford Bible Commentary, I'm looking at you). In my opinion, NISB helps clarify what the Biblical writers without telling the reader what to think (there are a couple of salutary notes of caution attached to texts at the center of contentious issues such as women in ministry and slavery). If I were asked to put NISB on a theological spectrum, I'd put it a wee bit left of center. In summary, it's packed with helpful features, clarifies the text without attempting to graft a systematic theology onto it, and often surprises with insightful Excurses and Special Notes. While the HarperCollins Study Bible is excellent (I own one), I prefer the NISB.
