    This hardback is indexed

    This hardback edition is indexed (ISBN-13 9780195289565, ISBN-10 0195289560), list price $52.00. I ordered it thinking it was unindexed but it was indexed.

    If you want the unindexed hardback 4th edition of the Bible with the Apocrypha, order the one with ISBN-13 9780195289558, ISBN-10 0195289552. Unfortunately, the BN page for this unindexed edition is mistakenly labeled Apocrypha 4 ed. but ignore the title (and picture if applicable) saying Apocrypha only. The unindexed edition list price is $45.00.

    Not the one to get.

    For years, the old New Oxford Annotated chugged along as the serious academic study Bible. I've still got the 1973 version that my college assigned in its religion classes.

    But when I took up teaching Sunday school and went looking for a newer study Bible, the Harper Collins Study Bible blew the NOAB out of the water with its introductions and notes. There are one-volume Bible commentaries that aren't much more detailed than the notes to the Harper Collins. And then in its second edition, they made it even better.

    Last month I sat down with this latest edition of the NOAB, which shows that Oxford is feeling the heat from Harper Collins. It's a big improvement over the previous NOAB ... but still not as good as the Harper Collins when it comes to detailed commentary. If you are thinking of buying this NOAB, I would strongly recommend you look at the Harper Collins Study Bible first.
