'An excellent piece of work, which is bound to be serviceable to a wide spread of readers.' Dr Ralph Martin, University of Sheffield
'The great merit of a volume like this is that one has a consistent approach to all the Biblical data, rather than ... where scholars of differing views each contribute a small portion of the commentary.' Dr Ben Witherington, Ashland Theological Seminary
'I feel that this book is the best resource currently available ... I particularly appreciate the competency of the marginal notes in the New Testament section.' Prof Robert Jewett, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary
'It is effectively a Bible and commentary in one volume and so would be useful for Bible studies and other similar discussion groups.' Ian Johnson, Life and Work (The Record of the Church of Scotland)
Although I don't exactly like the inclusiveness of the NRSV, I have found the CASB-NRSV to be an excellent addition to my pastoral library. This would be a very good study Bible for any pastor. The notes from Kee are extremely good, the binding and size are perfect [mine has NOT worn out after much, much use] and the blank margin areas allow plenty of space for writing in your own notes. This edition is REALLY well built, I cannot stress that enough, it holds up well to usage. The NRSV is a spartan though illuminating modern translation. The NR340, NRSV Cambridge Annotated Study Bible is an excellent buy and well worth purchasing. amazon reviewer amazon reviewer
First published in 1989, the New Revised Standard Version is the most accurate and up-to-date translation of the Bible available. Translated by a team from several different denomenations, it is a version accepted by all Christian traditions. The Cambridge Annotated Study Bible was edited by the internationally recognised biblical scholar, Dr Howard Clark Kee. It incorporates all the information that a modern student of the Bible will need.

I believe the decision to use this size font is indefensible. This is a good sized octavo volume, yet the printed portion is scaled down to fit on only a fraction of the page space available. Beware: in spite of the stated dimensions, if you buy this you will be getting what is essentially a smallish pew bible with very large margins. This was not evident to me from the preview available on Amazon.
Perhaps the editors wanted to leave room for notes, but even if they used a slightly larger font, there would still be plenty of room. However, I think the decision to use this peculiar layout had more to do with the publishers' stated desire to have the text in this study bible match "the text of the Cambridge Minister NRSV edition page-for-page" than consideration for the reader.
I strongly urge Cambridge to revise this bible. If they did, it would be a worthy successor to my preferred study bible, the RSV Oxford Annotated Bible; an edition I and many others prefer for its moderate perspective, handy size, readable font, and helpful yet brief study notes.
My one complaint: the print is very tiny. It makes my eyes hurt. But I love this Bible so much that I purchased a magnifying page for it. It's a little problematic. So, if you're willing to either buy a magnifier or to damage your eyesight, then this Bible is worth it! I'm not kidding...the print is teeny tiny!
