finally a bible without two columns,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Complete Jewish Bible-OE (Hardcover)
i have had my CJB now for around a year and think it is great. Here is what I like about it. Only one column of text (like a normal book), clear print, plenty of notes, and the parasha readings.
So what do i not like... the footnotes are good, but it would have been nice to see allusions recorded as well were new testament passages hint at other texts without directly quoting them, such as multiple times in Romans were Paul alludes to writings in the book of wisdom.
In fact it would probably be nice to have the deuterocanonical works included in there as well (but that is just something i would like)... up until very recently i never read them at all.
Lastly it is a shame that the bible does not come with a free cd containing all of the reference material and the book itself in pdf format (cause i like to read at my computer as well).
All in all though, this bible is my bible of choice and is likely to remain so for the considerable future.
