Format: Hardcover
The New Oxford Annotated Bible with Apocrypha: New Revised Standard Version has three separate ISBNs. Take a look at the following differences to help you differentiate:

ISBN 978-0195289596 is the college edition. According to Oxford University Press, this simply means that this version does not have the concordance. This will have fewer pages than the other two versions.

ISBN 978-0195289558 is the hardcover edition.

ISBN 978-0195289565 is the hardcover index edition, meaning there are little tabs on the side of each page, indicating books of the bible.

I found this information by contacting Oxford University Press Customer Service. There's a toll free number that's easily accessible. Simply use your favourite search engine to find their site, then click on their "Contact Us" link. Hope this helps people out there!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I LOVE the Oxford Annotated and use it along with the HarperCollins and New Interpreter's for my work in seminary and at church, and I have recommended the Oxford to literally hundreds of people. When I found out that a new edition had been released, I announced it in our church newsletter and I went ahead and bought 15, meaning to sell them to our members at cost or to give them as gifts. Why 1 star? It's because

1) THE PAPER ON WHICH IT IS PRINTED IS A BAD JOKE. Just like the New Interpreter's, you cannot open and close the thing without having the pages bend back upon themselves. The pages become crumpled with even the gentlest use.

2) CONTENT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU CANNOT READ THE PRINT. There are two factors at play here. The font is miniscule and the paper is virtually transparent. How they printed this in the first place is a miracle of science.

3) PEOPLE NEED THIS BIBLE IN THEIR HANDS. I gave this Bible to two separate people who had said that they wanted one. I asked them to be honest and let me know if they thought that they would have trouble reading it. Both of them handed their copies back to me saying "No, thank you." - even with the Church picking up half the cost.

Dear Whoever Makes These Decisions:

I work hard to convince people that they need to get a first-class, academic Study Bible. It is a hard sell because they are so bound to their "relevant", "real world", (Shall I go on?), quasi-scholarly, agenda-driven, anything but the NRSV, Devotional Bibles. Please believe me when I say that those of us who care about the wonderful work that you do are willing to carry around larger, heavier Bibles if what we get is stronger, more opaque paper, and larger fonts.

78 of 84 people found the following review helpful By Joseph M. Perorazio on July 27, 2010
Format: Leather Bound
The "NOAB" has been a standard textbook in mainline seminaries for decades, and remains a leader in the rapidly-expanding world of study Bibles. This particular Bible is designed for seminary students and others interested in an historical/critical approach to the Bible, and is not a devotional Bible or a guide for life application.

This 4th edition, hot on the heels of the 2007 "Augmented 3rd" edition (my personal preference), backpedals a bit in its commentaries regarding certain controversial passages (the 3rd edition was especially criticized in this regard), but it still retains the rigorous scholarly approach and dispassionate commentary for which the NOAB has become famous. Annotations and book introductions have been expanded, and a wider variety of scholars from various religious and academic backgrounds have contributed commentaries.

The physical book is a bit smaller in proportion than previous editions, and the font size is rather small, especially in the book introductions and annotations. (The 3rd edition's typesetting and readability is far superior). The concordance, index, and essay sections have been expanded, and brand-new color maps have been included.

The leather for this edition is an improvement over the 3rd edition, and feels like a soft calfskin (The container states "Genuine Leather"). It is quite nice and feels sturdy yet flexible.

For those seeking a non-denominational, academic Bible, the NOAB remains a clear first choice. It is an outstanding guide to these ancient texts, and offers a world of Biblical knowledge and insight for its readers.

27 of 29 people found the following review helpful By William B. Jones on March 8, 2010
Format: Hardcover
New Oxford Annotated Bible retains its status as a "go-to Study Bible" for those wishing to better understand cultural and historical settings of the communities for and from which Hebrew and Christian scriptures originated. (Those desiring to similarly understand how the Bible may be received by various cultures today will benefit on consulting "The Peoples' Bible" in turn.) With a new, tighter binding and readable page layout, though with a font-size verging on too-small for its annotations, this will be an edition that continues to appeal to those in academic settings and communities of faith.

Among contributors enlivening the fourth edition are both long-established scholars, such as Terence E. Fretheim, writing on the book of Numbers, and those newer to the field, such as Julia M. O'Brien, who anotates a number of the briefer prophets. Commentary retained from the previous edition sometimes implies certainty on key texts which, for other scholars, are best left open-ended (on, for example, the NRSV's questionable shift from "do not kill" to "do not murder" in the Ten Commandments). Neil Elliott's valuable, set-in-its-context-of-empire commentary on Romans remains. Four-and-a-half stars.
