Having studied religion from an historical perspective for a number of years, I truly appreciate the comprehensive nature of the footnotes in the HarperCollins edition. Explanations of the spiritual or supernatural tones in the passages are often specific to particular branches of faith and would render many study Bibles invalid for anyone not approaching the text within that branch. This Bible discusses few of those issues, allowing individual readers their own perspectives and beliefs.Being a [...]

This is a translation which manages to strike a very good balance between literalism and modern readability (at least, that's what I can tell from looking back and forth between difficult verses in different translations - I'm no scholar, and I certainly don't know Hebrew or Greek!).What I was really using this Bible for, however, was the notes, of which there are quite a few (it's more like a collection of notes with a bible attached). The focus is very academic. The goal seems to be presenting [...]

I had never read the Bible before, and this was a great intro to reading such a historically referenced tome. This version has tons of footnotes that clarify the customs of the ancient world, the Jewish world, and details about historical facts within the Bible. The translation was very clear, and this copy provided all the alternate translations that the Bible could be read with, as well as scholars' interpretations of the stories and their meaning. The only drawbacks to this book were that A) [...]

This seems to be a very good edition of the Bible both from a scholarly perspective and for the language itself. Of the dozen or so translations we have at the house, this is the one I prefer to read from. The only trouble is the binding - it's paperback and my copy has fallen apart into many pieces.

***I finished reading the Old Testament cover-to-cover today (Sunday, January 3, 2016) perhaps for the fourth time in my life. The other three times, I read the King James Version (KJV); overall, reading the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) was not markedly different though it did cast some understanding on certain archaic phrases as well as demonstrate why some passages beloved by Mormons have a very different reading/understanding/interpretation in other denominations. It is a remarkably co [...]

Way too long. The enormous lists of genealogies are tedious, and while they may have been important to the ancient Israelites, I cannot imagine they hold any relevance to modern day religions. The elaborate descriptions of ancient rituals and God's interior design plans for his temples don't seem particularly important in today's world either. While I understand these passages' historic importance, I think the Bible as a religious text could use some heavy editing. There are plenty of interestin [...]

Even though I am a religious person, I tend to be more interested in religion as a scholar. This translation is generally regarded as the most accurate and up-to-date by academics, and the footnotes help to put what can otherwise be a VERY confusing tome into context. If you can't read Koine Greek, this is the Bible you should own.

My very esteemed professor of New Testament, Dr. Jouette Bassler (who has recently retired) wrote the scholarly notes for a majority of the sections related to Paul's Letters and is an overall editor of this version. Anytime you can learn about Scripture from someone with her stature, it is truly humbling.

The Bible is one of my favorite books and this version is the better one out there honestly if you really want to try understanding the book's and Christianity's overall relevance. IMHO people who judge The Bible and/or Christianity (oftentimes liberals) without having actually read The Bible or tried to understand Christianity's roots are as arrogant and ignorant as the people they often ridicule. Disclosure: I am not religious whatsoever (atheist-under-weak-ass-agnostic-label) and consider mys [...]

Here's the thing: the Bible itself is a difficult and time consuming read. Some of it is entertaining, some of it is sad, and some of it is boring. It is filled with stories and sometimes has multiple versions of the same story. This version is wonderful though; it has different interpretations and explains parts that otherwise would be quite difficult to understand. My religion professor in college recommended this particular version to me.

November 4, 2013: I finished reading the NT last night from this Study Bible. With the help of my "8 Translations" book, I feel like I have learned a TON about the NT after reading it in this book. The notes are very helpful, and the introductory essays are quite good, although I prefer Raymond Brown's essays on each NT in his "Introduction to the New Testament." The level of skepticism about the authenticity of the NT books from the authors of the introductions in the Study Bible varied quite a [...]

I bought this Bible for my studies in college. It includes the books of the Old and New Testaments with the Apocryphal/Deuterocanonical Books. The Apocryphal/Deuterocanonical Books aren't in standard Protestant Christian Bibles, but are found in the Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox, and/or Slavonic Orthodox Bibles. These include Tobit, Judith, The Additions to the Book of Esther, Wisdom of Solomon, Ecclesiasticus or the Wisdom of Jesus Son of Sirach, Baruch, The Letter of Jeremiah, The Additions t [...]

With so many other decent study Bibles out there, there is not really a good reason to get this one. Really the only reason is if you want one that includes the Apocrypha (though the New Annotated Oxford NRSV is probably better). Format issues: The typeface is light and difficult to read. I don't know if it comes in better binding, but the hardcover format I used was not as comfortable and attractive as most leather Bibles. Content: The notes are less extensive than some other study Bibles (for [...]

Reading portions of Exodus, Ecclesiastes, Matthew, 2 Chronicles, and Daniel for grad school, I was reminded of this volume's quality. The writing is clear and extremely accurate when compared to the original documents, and a wide array of scholars contributed to the translations and footnotes. Some of the language may lack the poeticism of the classic King James Bible, but many portions (Ecclesiastes in particular) are stirring in their own right. I think as far as completeness and readability g [...]

Even though I disagreed with much of the skeptical scholarship behind the annotations in this Bible, this was an excellent study Bible that went into great detail over its affirmations. It also explains the literary structure of various books and stories, and generally treats the Bible not only as a sacred work (though it largely denies anything miraculous or prophetic) but also as a text to be interpreted according to more than just its various propositions. Like most study Bibles or even other [...]

It feels odd to write a review of the Bible, but this is the most helpful version of the Bible I've ever used. It was recommended to me by my priest when I admitted I really all that familiar with the Bible aside from the stories I remembered from Sunday school. This is just what I needed. Each book begins with historical information about who is believed to have written it, any scholarly disagreements and the general historical context. The bottom of each page is rich with supplemental informat [...]

Among my many Bible editions, clearly my first choice for most study. NRSV of course. I even prefer its inter-textual references to those in the Oxford edition, although both are first rate and it is fun and instructive to compare when one has time. (Did so once for fairly extensive collection of the Psalms.)It is heavy. Would be nice if these could be bound with 2-5 ribbon markers, but of course they are not.

This is an excellent reference bible. Although I prefer an edition with Hebrew in order to delve into the real meaning of the words, I love to reference this book when I need to quickly glance at something or to get a little bit of an idea about a passage in the bible. This is not for the advanced bible scholar but for those who are just starting out or don't want to delve too far into the bible, this is the perfect starting point.

I am using this version for a bible study class. The notes are very quite useful and I the text seems to find a good balance between possible interpretations of words, also with good notes as to why a particular word was used when meaning can be vague. We are going very slowly, about 4 chapters a week, or so, and of the various translations (we each may choose our own favorite) used by my fellow students, I consistently find this to be the most satisfactory for my use.

I know it's not the KJV, and I know that a lot of LDS folks believe that the only 'correct' version of the bible is the KJV, but I unabashedly give this 5 stars because 1 a different translation can give you greater insight into the KJV and 2 it has the best scholarly research on the bible that exists today. The footnotes offer insight into the history, culture, mindset of the people in the bible. I particularly enjoyed the old testiment.

This is a good Study Bible to have if one wishes to interact with modern higher-critical scholarship. Evangelicals won't find the notes to be particularly spiritually nourishing, but it is well worth having in order to have a well rounded collection of study bible and to be aware of alternative views. The fact that this Bible includes the Apocrypha with notes is an additional bonus that one won't find in most orthodox Protestant study Bibles.

Excellent study bible with extensive academic-style notes. Good for personal or individual study. I've found one or two dubious explanations but overall really good with lots of cross references. Although the NRSV is starting to feel a little dated (English evolves so quickly!) it's quite a readable translation and better accuracy than many.

This is one of several bibles I read intermittantly. It is my favorite to date. I would have preferred the hard-bound version, the the host was prohibitive. Maybe one day. This was recommended to me by one of the nuns working in the catholic bookshop I went to. She uses this version as her study bible.
