I don’t know that I would jump on buying this particular study bible. The amazon description seems to indicate that most of the study guides are from previous editions of the NAB, this being the latest translations or version of the NAB.
Those introductory articles by those well-known bible scholars seem kind of short, to me. There doesn’t (to me) seem to be a lot of value there. The concordance at the end will add a lot of pages (I’ve never seen this study bible), but it seems to simply be ‘another’ version of an NAB study Bible.
I’d say it’s up to you whether to buy this Bible. I did buy the Little Rock Scripture Study Bible, which is likewise based on the latest versions of the NAB text (this Oxford version may be slightly less expensive, but I didn’t see the hardcover price on amazon), but it, too, has (at least in a dozen places that I checked) still the same cross references as earlier versions of the NAB study Bible and the commentary is the “same old” NAB commentary. It is here that I saw the latest NAB translation and it is very readable.
If you want to get an interesting book, I’d recommend the Oxford 2nd Ed. of The Jewish Study Bible which has copious running notes alongside the Bible text (Jewish version) and many essays about Bible history and meaning. This, as I recall, also runs about $28 and has thin pages.
The Church says that Jewish study materials are often “first class” Bible study aids, allowing for their different point of view. That Jewish translation has translator’s notes that show how very frequently the Hebrew text is unclear – you seldom if ever see any uncertainty expressed in Catholic Bibles about text, when there really is uncertainty about the Hebrew meaning.
From time to time, I have suggested that people pick a budget for themselves for buying study bibles and commentaries. The basic choices for Catholic Bibles today would be the New American Version (latest translations) and the Revised Standard Version – 2nd Catholic Edition – and, at that, the study versions of these.
