Generations of users attest to its status as the best one-volume Bible reference tool for any home, library, or classroom.

    I like study bibles as they are an excellent resource to give a very top level view of a passage and as such tend to be my first port of call.

    I was encouraged to get this by my tutors when i was studying.
    It is very good if you use the nrsv as this not only has the apocrypha but also has a parallels module to run with the nrsv parallels. So these are two very strong reasons for getting it.

    It also has a number of maps which are ok and in colour

    However, for me, i find the notes and information in the esv study bible to be more detailed and more comprehensive so i tend to only use the noab for the apocrypha and parallels which are not covered by the esv study bible.

    This is a great resource for when you don’t have the time to get bogged down by extensive commentary. My main gripe is that the explanatory notes of the NOAB can be inconsistent- sometimes it is surprisingly silent on a passage that warrants additional historical context for a term, person, or location. One thing that I love is that the NOAB includes a variety of maps , mostly in black and white, to explain the historical and geographic context of a passage or book. There are also some stunning full color maps.
