Excellent annotated Bible for serious study,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The New Oxford Annotated Bible with Apocrypha: New Revised Standard Version (Hardcover)
Like many other Oxford titles, such as the Oxford Bible Commentary, this is an indispensable resource for serious biblical and theological study. Not only the individual books have introductions and chapter/verse commentaries but there are also very useful essays on the books that may not be the focus of one's particular studies that go a long way to form a high-level but rounded knowledge of those books. This is a substantial and serious reference that will serve any student well for many years; my only complaint is that there isn't (as of writing) a Kindle version.
