Review: The New Oxford Annotated Apocrypha: New Revised Standard Version

User Review  - Victoria - Goodreads

The first time I tried to read the Apocrypha, I only made it through Tobit. This time, I managed to read it all (slowly and painfully, at times). The Four books of Maccabees are incredibly violent, for example. Turns out I really only enjoyed Tobit, but I am glad that I read it. Read full review

An interesting read. Some books definitely better than others. But overall the Old Testament is superior. Read full review
