It's pretty good. I'd personally recommend the Orthodox Study Bible or the New Oxford Annotated RSV Bible, however.

I am not currently using the Bible that you are planning on buying (I'm not selling it), so no worries Smiley

I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

If you must have an RSV or NRSV, that one is probably the best.

Since its Old Testament is neither the Septuagint nor Blessed Jerome's Hebrew text, it is not the best choice but certainly better than a paraphrase.

The OSB is a good choice even though it's a sloppy translation of the Old Testament Septuagint (at least in the Pentateuch which is all I have reviewed in depth)

About the New Oxford Annotated RSV Bible, does anyone know if there is any difference (in the text) between the hardcover and leather books?

http://www.amazon.com/Annotated-Apocrypha-Standard-Expanded-Hardcover/dp/0195283481

and

http://www.amazon.com/Annotated-Apocrypha-Revised-Standard-Expanded/dp/019528335X

The reason I ask is because the leather one is from 1982 and the hardcover one is from 1977 (and the leather one is quite a bit more expensive). According to Amazon the dimensions of the hardcover are a little bit lower as well.

I started using it this past year and love it, but I use the OSB to reference back to or vise versa.  It reads much better for me.  I noticed that I will have to read Maccabees III from the OSB, though. (I'm reading Maccabees II, now.)

Thank you. You have the hardcover one? That red cover is removable right? From everything I've read I'm probably going to get this one.

The Ignatius Bible (RSV) Catholic second edition psalms etc is in newer English, and The New Oxford Annotated RSV Bible psalms is older Englsih, both very good bibles.

The New Oxford Annotated RSV Bible extended has all the books including Maccabees IIII.

No, alas, it is not removable. IMO, the leather is worth the extra cost. I have it and love it.
