5 Stars Out Of 5
A MUST HAVE for the serious Bible Student
November 6, 2013
Let me begin by stating that I am not a LUTHERAN. I have always had an affinity for the Apocrypha. I read it in the KJV and in the NRSV. I always hated that though there were MILLIONS of study bibles, (most in a good price range) do not contain the apocrypha. I had the one Cambridge study Apocrypha and I loved it. When I got this one, I WAS BLOWN AWAY by the wealth of information. It is written extremely well and if you have a love for history, you will get your fill. With all of the notes, maps, commentary, historical information, etc. you will easily be able to bridge that gap between Malachi and Matthew like never before.
The other thing that I like is that even though it is a Lutheran edition, the information pointing to the Lutheran tradition is not so overwhelming that non-Lutherans would feel out of place reading it.
This is a MUST HAVE whether you believe the Apocrypha is canonical or not.
