For over 50 years students, professors, clergy, and general readers have relied on The New Oxford Annotated Bible with Apocrypha as an unparalleled authority in Study Bibles. This fifth edition of the Annotated remains the best way to study and understand the Bible at home or in the classroom. This thoroughly revised and substantially updated edition contains the best scholarship informed by recent discoveries and anchored in the solid Study Bible tradition.

  • Introductions and extensive annotations for each book by acknowledged experts in the field provide context and guidance.
  • Introductory essays on major groups of biblical writings - Pentateuch, Prophets, Gospels, and other sections - give readers an overview that guides more intensive study.
  • General essays on history, translation matters, different canons in use today, and issues of daily life in biblical times inform the reader of important aspects of biblical study.
  • Maps and diagrams within the text contextualize where events took place and how to understand them.
  • Color maps give readers the geographical orientation they need for understanding historical accounts throughout the Bible.
  • Timelines, parallel texts, weights and measures, calendars, and other helpful tables help navigate the biblical world.
  • An extensive glossary of technical terms demystifies the language of biblical scholarship.
  • An index to the study materials eases the way to the quick location of information.

The New Oxford Annotated Bible, with twenty new essays and introductions and others--as well as annotations--fully revised, offers the reader flexibility for any learning style. Beginning with a specific passage or a significant concept, finding information for meditation, sermon preparation, or academic study is straightforward and intuitive.

A volume that users will want to keep for continued reference, The New Oxford Annotated Bible continues the Oxford University Press tradition of providing excellence in scholarship for the general reader. Generations of users attest to its status as the best one-volume Bible reference tool for any home, library, or classroom.

Note: While the printed version of this product contains the text of the NRSV, this module does not include the actual biblical text. It contains all the Introductions, Indexes, and Notes of the printed version. The Bible Study Notes of this module can be linked to run in parallel with any Accordance Bible translation.

Note: This product includes a second module (NOAB parallels) to cover the parallel portions: Greek Esther/Additions, Prayer of Azariah (Dan 3), and Psalm 151. All correspond to the parallel NRSV2 module.

The NOAB approaches the text with an eye to contemporary, scholarly views of Biblical criticism. The more than 50 scholars succeed in providing invaluable information to help each reader understand the Bible in context. Generally the more theological implications are left to the reader to form on their own. The Oxford Annotated Bible has been valued for over 50 years in academic as well as religious circles and the latest version we have here in Accordance does not disappoint and indeed has improved on it's predecessors. While it is not going to give the depth of even a one volume commentary it provides very usefully information and references that all people may benefit from as they study the text. The 3rd edition has been on my prayer desk for almost 20 years and has served me well I am pleased to have the 5th edition in Accordance.

While i was training, the tutors were using the 4th version of this and kept trying to get me to change to it from the study bible i was using. I got the oxford commentary edited by barton and muddiman which they also 'suggested' but got the spiritual formation bible (a renovare resource) as i wanted a study bible which took a radically different approach to my other study bibles. Both of these were hard copy and in my pre accordance days.

Jump forward several decades, i still like study bibles but I also like to have a study bible that relates to the translation i am reading in accordance. (I know accordance allows you to use any study bible with any translation.)

I have been holding off getting an nrsv study bible in the hope that the noab would eventually come to accordance.
For me, the good news about this module is that it includes notes on the apocrypha which is useful and missing from all my other study bibles. There is also a parallel module which appears to be tailor made ...

For me, the good news about this module is that it includes notes on the apocrypha which is useful and missing from all my other study bibles. There is also a parallel module which appears to be tailor made for the nrsv parallel module. Importantly for me, the noab also includes the translators notes for the nrsv. Apparently 5hese are a requirement by the nrsv copyright holders but they are still missing from the notes that come with the nrsv.

The notes are also a little more detailed rather than some of the one line comments found in some study bibles but my initial impression is that they are not as detailed as those in either the esv or the zondervan niv study bibles.

So, why only 4 stars? When buying a hard copy nrsv, you either get the cross references or you get a study bible or just the text with notes. Unlike the niv and esv study bibles, you dont get both study notes and cross references. Also, the maps are clear but only in monochrome unlike the full colour and slightly more detailed ones in the esv and zondervan niv study bibles.

Yes, there are lots of cross references in the noab study notes but we dont get the complete cross references that are included in the specific cross reference hard copy. Not sure why nrsv has taken this policy because it is the same with all the publishers of the hard copy.

Like all study bibles these days, there are lots of essays at the end and accordance have worked their magic on linking references and tagging and the contents index is brilliantly structured.

I am pleased to finally having a nrsv study bible in accordance as the nrsv is the bible used throughout our diocese. For me, i am looking forward to using it and getting to dig around in it but i doubt this will become my 'go to' because of the missing cross references which i have become used to in the esv study bible as i have been running this in parallel with the nrsv translation while waiting for noab as the translations are similar. The esv study bible also has a good range of maps in colour and scrolls with the text on my ipad.

I suspect the noab will be mainly called on when im delving into the apocrypha or rereading the nrsv translation philosophy notes.
