Summary

Extensively revised--half of the material is brand new--featuring a new design to enhance readability, and brand-new color maps, the Annotated Fourth Edition adds to the established reputation of this essential biblical studies resource. Many new and revised maps, charts, and diagrams further clarify information found in the Scripture text.

Awesome Resource! June 29, 2011
by
This is the best translated bible that I've read. This Bible, though, is absolutely essential to someone who may not have access to commentaries who needs a historically reliable resource. It gives the reader deeper insight of times and places when the book was written. It is objective in its notes and tries to stay clear of doctrine. Excellent definitions of what was meant. This bible has maps and excellent descriptions of what occured. Overall, this is a very excellent presentation of the Apocrypha. The price is very suitable and the textbook arrived earlier than the delivery date and in a very good condition for a used textbook exactly as a described. I highly recommend this vendor.
