-This is the same as the much pricier hardback version that usually gets all the attention. This one I think goes unnoticed because of its paperback format, which doesn't fare well with the book's large size. That said, the softcover does allow the book to lay flat on a table if you're in the middle two thirds of the book.
-The articles remain largely ecumenical and try to incorporate an eclectic view of the subjects it speaks about, but if there is a bias it is slightly Evangelical (which for me isn't a bad thing, just mentioning it for informational purposes).
-Most importantly, the book can be secured for much cheaper at Christian Book Distributors. As of this writing, the price at CBD is only $9.99. It fluctuates a little (I got mine for $15) but usually maintains a much lower pricepoint than can be found anywhere else.
All in all, an essential book for any scholarly-minded individual and a worthy edition for any Christian's library.
