Edited by M. Jack Suggs, Katharine Doob Sakenfeld & James R. Mueller
The Oxford Study Bible is the first one-volume resource that introduces readers to the Bible through a combination of an overview of biblical history and scholarship and direct commentary on the text. Its features include 23 indispensable articles on the history, literary background, and cultural influences of the Bible, the complete text of the Revised English Bible with the Apocrypha, fully revised and updated page-by-page textual annotations, a special index to people, places, and themes in the Bible, and full color New Oxford Bible Maps with index.
“Well-written and up-to-date articles on the historical, cultural, and religious background of the Bible. The publication of this resource marks a new level of ecumenical cooperation.”—David E. Aune, Loyola University
