Item Description...
Students, professor 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 remain the reader's and student's constant resource.

The Best of the Real Study Bibles  Mar 2, 2007
If you are searching for a study Bible that focuses on the best modern scholarship around concerning the texts that make up the Bible, you will soon find out from most reviews on this site (as well as from other places such as universities) the best of the more objective ones are the New Oxford Annotated Bible (3rd edition - this augmented edition has added new maps, charts, diagrams, and updated introductions), the HarperCollins Study Bible (just revised in 2006), and the New Interpreter's Study Bible. All three come with the New Revised Standard Version, generally accepted by scholars as the most accurate English translation. All come with the Apocrypha, though the New Oxford Annotated Bible is available without it. If you can afford it, I recommend all three.

The New Oxford Annotated Bible (NOAB), if compared to the HarperCollins Study Bible, is a larger tome, mainly because of a more expansive layout and larger font (very comfortable on the eyes), and the chunk of essay material that is present in the back is one of the most helpful parts of the NOAB (much more extensive than the others), though the HarperCollins appears to have more extensive notes at the bottom of the biblical text in tiny print. In addition to the essays in the back, the NOAB has very good introductory essays to the major sections and individual books, as do the other two bibles.

The NOAB is not a conservative work, and looks at the bible as literature, from a more historical-critical viewpoint, much as the HarperCollins bible does. The New Interpreter's (NISB) is usually expressed to be an amalgam of the two Bibles mentioned above, and sometimes recommended in place of the other two because of additional material that can be found offset from the notes that goes in depth on particular subjects of interest in the text. It is certainly the largest of the three volumes (HarperCollins being the most compact), but the binding of the NISB itself appears lowest in quality. The New Oxford Annotated Bible is my overall favorite of the lot at this time, though it lacks section headings, which are available in the others.

As with any study Bible of any persuasion, blind acceptance of the notes, commentary, or essay material should not occur; it does not hurt to gain the insights of the best scholarship available today, no matter what your beliefs are about the nature of the Bible, and whether you are in agreement or not. Beliefs should stand up under scrutiny; so I say scrutinize.
