Snyder's SoapboxFruitland, IdahoAge: 35-44Gender: Male4 Stars Out Of 5The New Oxford Annotated Bible With The Apocrypha, Expanded Edition, in Revised Standard Version, (RSV) Covered in Genuine Black Leather. 8914ANovember 12, 2017Snyder's SoapboxFruitland, IdahoAge: 35-44Gender: MaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Today on Snyders Soapbox we are going to take a look at a Bible for all the RSV and Apocrypha fans. The Apocrypha isnt my cup of tea, but I recognize there are some folks out there who would like to buy a well built Bible in this translation with the Apocrypha. This Bible from Oxford, is very well built. I wouldnt look at it as a premium Bible, but more as a work horse. The thing is built like a tank. Thats not to say it isnt an attractive looking Bible, it is. I would categorize this Bible as a daily use Study Bible. If you want to read the Apocrypha, and the notes that go along with this edition, this is probably the best option. Ill stick to my own flavor of commentaries. As a Reformed Baptist much of the notes in this edition are generalized for broader appeal.
It is covered in black genuine leather with a moderate grain and a perimeter groove. The leather is harder, and high gloss, leading me to think that it is pig skin leather. Pig skin leather holds up well, but is not as supple as other choices. It is also less expensive to use. It is case bound, and has a gold colored, hot-stamped, perimeter line around the inside cover. It has two yellow/gold ribbon markers, black and gold bands. The spine has the words, The New Oxford Annotated Bible at the top, With the Apocrypha Expanded Edition under that, then, Revised Standard Version and, Oxford at the bottom. The page edges are also hot stamped with gold colored foil. I really like the ribbons. Their color and material, are nice for a Bible with this low price. The spine is smyth sewn, flexible, and durable. I cant think of any reason why this Bible wouldnt hold up for a long time. The paper is thick, opaque, and the 10 pt. font of the main text, is sharp and clear. The notes are in 8 pt. font. This Bible is printed, and bound in South Korea. It is a quality edition at a good value price. It is laid out in a double column, paragraph format, with notes at the bottom. Each book has an introduction. It seems to be more of a study Bible, than a reference Bible, with all the helps that are in it. At the end of the day, if you are in the market for an RSV, with the Apocrypha, this is the only choice. It is well built, and priced to sell. It should last a long time, and serve you well.
