Author Bio

Joel B. Green is Professor of New Testament Interpretation at Fuller Theological Seminary. Author of many books, he is alsoa General Editor of the Wesley Study Bible and the Common English Bible. Feeling most athome behind a pulpit, Bishop William H. Willimons deepest calling is to be a preacher and truth-teller of Jesus Christ. Willimon is Professor of the Practice of Christian Ministry at Duke University Divinity School and retiredBishop of the North Alabama Conference of The United Methodist Church, after serving for 20 years as faculty member and Dean of the Chapel at Duke University. He continues to give lectures and teach at universities around the world. Willimon earned a doctoral degree from Emory University and has been honored with 13 additional doctorates. He lives in Birmingham, Alabama.

Astudy by the Pulpit and Pew Research Center found that Willimon is one of the most widely read authors among mainline Protestant pastors. An international survey conducted by Baylor University named him one of the "Twelve Most Effective Preachers" in the English-speaking world. With over a million copies of more than 60 books sold, his popularity is undeniable.

    Physical Aspects of this Bible:

    - I'm not too crazy about the green duo-tone of this Bible, and the cover is not as thick or durable as a genuine leather cover.

    - The pages are thin, but the Bible itself is rather thin, so it is not a big deal (most Bibles have ridiculously thin pages now-a-days anyway)

    - The print is generous, but if you have vision problems, you may struggle with this Bible. I found the print to be about average size.

    - I am happy with the size of the font of the notes, and the amount of notes.

    Other:

    - I love the NRSV translation. I have a B.A. in Biblical studies, and I am 2 semesters from completing my M.A. in the New Testament. After extensive study of the Greek, I find this to be one of the most accurate/scholarly translations available.

    - I am not a Methodist/Wesleyan, but I enjoy learning about the Bible from all angles, and the notes in this Bible are contemporary, scholarly, and relevant while adhering to core Wesleyan teachings.

    Like always, you can't beat Christianbook's service. If you're going to buy this Bible, buy it from here.

    I received my copy of the NRSV Wesley Study Bible last week. Finally a Bible has been published that lifts up Jesus Christ, holy living, and yet factors in moderate Biblical Criticism (analysis).

    The NRSV is an accurate translation in the Tyndale-King James Tradition. The Wesley Bible study helps include: Book Introductions; annotations from a Wesleyan perspective; an excellent index on Wesleyan Core Terms (Core Term articles are interspersed throughout the Biblical text); an excellent index on Life Application Topics (Life Application articles are interspersed in the Biblical text).

    This Bible has a quality, flexible imitation leather cover and a sewn binding for strength and durability.

    All in all this Bible is an excellent resource. The only room for improvement would be to increase the font size of the Biblical text (from 8.5 to 9.0 or 9.5) and to add a concordance which no study Bible should be without. Still, this is a very helpful Bible!

    Great News! The Wesley Study Bible will be released with a different Bible Translation this November 2012. The new edition will be the Common English Bible Wesley Study Bible and apparently will contain a concordance. This is wonderful because the Common English Bible is a more readable and yet reasonably accurate translation made by a cross denominational team of Biblical Scholars. It is written in plain adult English and will work well with the Wesley Study Bible!

    Wesley looked upon "all the world as my parish". This Bible will help equip believers as they testify Christ to a hurting world.

    I'm an information junkie. I'm not that great with literature symbolism and that sort of thing. I'm always interested in another view on things. I may not agree, but I'm open to what others have to say.

    Physical:

    1 Page thickness: Has very thin pages on pages, however show through is not significant or noticeable and does not interfere with reading, show through can however be seen on some of the title pages and pages where there is a large amount of white .

    2 The bible is not one that you are going to be carrying around as it is to large for that, and due to the thinness of the pages it is not the type of bible you want to be flicking through quickly.

    3 Has good color maps

    4 Cover is good looking immitation leather with no smell.

    5 Bible is written in paragraph format not verse format except for the poetic books which revert to the paragraph poetic type format. Verses are easy to find however as the numbering within the paragraphs is large enought that it is easy to see.

    Content:

    1 The Wesley Study Bible has copious amounts of notes and explanations, but in no way would it ever be described as an acedemic bible or a bible for university courses.

    Most notes are related to spiritual understanding and meaning understanding of the chapters and verses.

    2 There are chapter headings that give a good understanding of what the chapter is about, also within the chapter there are headings when there is a change of topic.

    3 there is superscript used for words that could have different translations, the different translations are given below the text but above the study notes.

    4 There are 19 nice maps clear maps at the back.

    5 THERE IS NO CROSS REFERENCING, although there are copious notes about the meaning there is little or no cross referencing to other parts of the bible.

    RECOMMENDATION

    I recommend this book for those who are wanting to use the bible for personal spiritual study, but would not recommend it as an academic study bible. It is not a carry around bible and would be best for home use.
