For the past half-year, I have been vacillating as to whether I should purchase a new Bible. Every time I went to Cokesbury in Atlanta, I drooled over all of my favorite translations. I looked at hard covers and the leather editions; I checked prices and versions.

But whenever I went, I felt that I was committing some sort of adulterous act. At home, I knew my beloved Bible, the Oxford Annotated Study Bible, Third Edition, was awaiting my arrival. I had purchased the Bible over six years ago, and it got some great use in Bible studies, Sunday school, and sermons.

It seemed only natural, then, that if I were to get a new Bible, it would have to be the next Oxford edition (the Fourth Edition). This would not be unusual: Over the past fourteen years I owned a total of four Oxford Annotated Bibles.

I remember the day I purchased my first Oxford Annotated Study Bible in 1996. I entered college as a Bible student, and my religion professors required this particular version.

I went to the campus bookstore and saw this behemoth of a Bible (I later learned that it goes by the nickname, "the Brick"). I wondered why I had to get a new Bible in the first place. At the time, I was using the very popular NIV study Bible (mine had a cool DC Talk "Jesus Freak" sticker on the back cover, thank you very much). Why would I spend forty to sixty dollars for another Bible?

Several reasons. For one, it had the Apocrypha. My professors told me that we would study these books in addition to the Protestant "inspired" texts because it provides historical insight to the inter-testamental period leading up to Jesus.

Also, it was the New Revised Standard Version.

The Good. The binding on this Bible is very good. The genuine leather feels wonderful in the hands. The construction is what we've come to expect from Oxford.

The Bad. The print in this edition is horrible compared to the wonderful print in the Third Edition. I miss the easy on the eyes type and the justified margins of the Third. The print in the Fourth is bold but smaller and crowded and hard on the eyes. The theological revisions are OK at best. Again, I miss the scholarship of the Third Edition. I immediately noticed that the commentary on the "homosexual" passages has moved decidedly to the right in the Fourth Edition (which is fine for those who hold to a more conservative evangelical cultural position).

The Ugly. I wish that Oxford would once again offer their genuine leather Bibles with a choice of thumb index or not. I really do not like thumb indexed Bibles at all and would love to have the option to get an Oxford nice Bible without them.

I bought this Bible in the Catholic version and was very surprised to learn that some orthodox Catholics have books I had never seen. That was an added pleasure. Overall it is very complete, easily understood and informative. The only complaint I have is that you cannot put tabs on it because they advise you not to due to the type of paper. It's quite thick and obviously they couldn't use standard paper. For the same reason the print is on the small side so could be a problem for some people.

When you place this Bible in your hands it just feels as though it belongs. It is the softest and most desirable Bible I have ever owned. It is a comfortable size and weight. As expected Oxford has done it again, they have kept with their excellent quality, when it comes to the Binding and use of fine material. I would highly recommend this Bible to anyone. This Bible will serve as my primary Pastoral Bible. It will be used for teaching, preaching, funerals, and weddings.

The only reason this is not a five star rating is that Oxford needs to publish a genuine leather edition without the thumb index, as I feel it takes away from the clean look, not to mention I find them to be a distraction. The paper is a little on the thin side, but to keep the Bible at a respectful thickness, I know why they did it, after all it is over 2,000 pages with the maps and concordance.

If you are contemplating purchasing this Bible, I say do it now, don't hesitate another moment. This will easily become the most used Bible you own.

Overall- Great Bible, wonderful quality, and very appeasing to the eyes.

I wanted an accurate translation like the NRSV and I was looking for a book of quality like the New Oxfford would offer. I am very happy with this 4th revision study bible. It pretty much covers every verse of the bible. The font could be bigger and the pages could be thicker. I find the font is clear even though it's small, but my wife can't read the annotation even with glasses. I can't use bible tabs or highlight because the pages are so thin. I understand how heavy the bible would be if the pages were thicker though. This is the theologians bible.

The New Oxford Annotated Bible is fantastic! The study notes are extensive. I am taking a disciple course and this bible has been an invaluable help in preparing my lessons. My only complaint is that the fine print of the study notes is a bit small for my 80 year old eyes. I understand that to make the print larger would make a book too big to use. Thank God for magnifying glasses!
