The premier study Bible used by scholars, pastors, undergraduate and graduate students, The New Oxford Annotated Bible with Apocrypha offers a vast range of information, including extensive notes by experts in their fields; in-text maps, charts, and diagrams; supplementary essays on translation, biblical interpretation, cultural and historical background, and other general topics.

Extensively revised--half of the material is brand new--featuring a new design to enhance readability, and brand-new color maps, the Annotated Fourth Edition adds to the established reputation of this essential biblical studies resource. Many new and revised maps, charts, and diagrams further clarify information found in the Scripture text. In addition, section introductions have been expanded and the book introductions present their information in a standard format so that students can find what they need to know. Of course, the Fourth Edition retains the features prized by students, including single column annotations at the foot of the pages, in-text charts, and maps, a page number-keyed index of all the study materials in the volume, and Oxford's renowned Bible maps. This timely edition maintains and extends the excellence the Annotated's users have come to expect, bringing still more insights, information, and perspectives to bear upon the understanding of the biblical text.

- The renowned New Revised Standard Version Bible translation, the scholarly standard for study of the Bible
- Wholly revised, and greatly expanded book introductions and annotations.
- Annotations in a single column across the page bottom, paragraphed according to their boldface topical headings.
- In-text background essays on the major divisions of the biblical text.
- Essays on the history of the formation of the biblical canon for Jews and various Christian churches.
- More detailed explanations of the historical background of the text.
- More in-depth treatment of the history and varieties of biblical criticism.
- A timeline of major events in the ancient Near East.
- A full index to all of the study materials, keyed to the page numbers on which they occur.
- A full glossary of scholarly and critical terms.
- 36-page section of full color New Oxford Bible Maps, approximately 40 in-text line drawing maps and diagrams.

Classic but not stodgy, up-to-date but not trendy, The New Oxford Annotated Bible: 4th Edition is ready to serve new generations of students, teachers, and general readers.

As many others have said, this is an invaluable edition for anyone to own, even those not studying religion. The annotations are helpful and translation is superb. ( )

Great edtion of the Bible. Lots of extras, apocrypha, and more. ( )

A copy of the NOAB is a must for anyone interested in studying Christianity. The Annotations and study materials are concise, informative, and well-accepted. (This is the standard Bible for college religion courses.) As regards format: the type is easy to read, and the margins are large enough to accommodate notes, should you so desire.

Word to the wise: the changes made to newer editions are minimal at best. You'll save a tidy amount of cash by buying a used copy of an older edition, and you won't be losing a thing. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 019528478X, Hardcover)

Students, professors and general readers alike have relied upon the Oxford Annotated Bible for essential scholarship and guidance to the world of the Bible for four decades. Now a new editorial board and team of contributors have completely updated this classic work. The result is a volume which maintains and extends the excellence the Annotated's users have come to expect, bringing new insights, information, and approaches to bear upon the understanding of the text of the Bible.
The new edition includes a full index to all of the study material (not just to the annotations), and one that is keyed to page numbers, not to citations. And, to make certain points in the text clearer for the reader, there are approximately 40 in-text, line drawing maps and diagrams.
With the best of the Annotated's traditional strengths, and the augmentation of new information and new approaches represented in current scholarship, the Third Edition will continue to serve as the reader's and student's constant resource.
