'An excellent piece of work, which is bound to be serviceable to a wide spread of readers.' Dr Ralph Martin, University of Sheffield
'The great merit of a volume like this is that one has a consistent approach to all the Biblical data, rather than … where scholars of differing views each contribute a small portion of the commentary.' Dr Ben Witherington, Ashland Theological Seminary
'I feel that this book is the best resource currently available … I particularly appreciate the competency of the marginal notes in the New Testament section.' Prof Robert Jewett, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary
'It is effectively a Bible and commentary in one volume and so would be useful for Bible studies and other similar discussion groups.' Ian Johnson, Life and Work (The Record of the Church of Scotland)
Although I don't exactly like the inclusiveness of the NRSV, I have found the CASB-NRSV to be an excellent addition to my pastoral library. This would be a very good study Bible for any pastor. The notes from Kee are extremely good, the binding and size are perfect [mine has NOT worn out after much, much use] and the blank margin areas allow plenty of space for writing in your own notes. This edition is REALLY well built, I cannot stress that enough, it holds up well to usage. The NRSV is a spartan though illuminating modern translation. The NR340, NRSV Cambridge Annotated Study Bible is an excellent buy and well worth purchasing. amazon reviewer amazon reviewer
First published in 1989, the New Revised Standard Version is the most accurate and up-to-date translation of the Bible available. Translated by a team from several different denomenations, it is a version accepted by all Christian traditions. The Cambridge Annotated Study Bible was edited by the internationally recognised biblical scholar, Dr Howard Clark Kee. It incorporates all the information that a modern student of the Bible will need.See all Product description

Looking on the bright side, the layout is unique in that the annotations are placed around the text in the left, bottom and right margins. The book is the same width and marginally taller than the Oxford which means that the annotations are in fact in a small but very readable font.
The introductions to the books are all at the beginning and printed in a very large font. This makes them look more impressive than they are. The article about The Story of the Bible which precedes them serves well as a general introduction.
The glossary at the end is quite useful. The maps are terrible in that they look like the kind of maps found in school atlasses of the 1960s!
Cross references are provided in the middle margins for what they are worth. They are somewhat inadequate.
The Apocrypha is published as a separate volume with a printed hard cover. The main Study Bible has a jacket. The Apocrypha is quite a bit larger than the main Study Bible. Goodness knows what the reasoning behind this was.
By all means but the CASB if you need to have your hand held whilst reading the Bible. For serious study, you need the Oxford or the HarperCollins. Or this book together with a good commentary...
