Review: RSV New Oxford Annotated Bible with the Apocrypha, Expanded Edition, hardcoverUser Review - Christianbook.com
I have been an enthusiastic supporter of the O.A.B. with Apocrypha, ever since an oecumenical edition graced the stalls of bookstores in autumn of 1965. Even today, there are serious students of Scripture who prefer dignified English when referring to God Thrice-Holy. Such persons, because they are unlikely to be pushovers for PC translations, are all the more likely to thrill at the finer prose evident in this RSV. CBD's exceptional offering is based upon that first edition of 1965: as finally enhanced by the expanded edition of 1977, which has set a standard for Study Bibles, ever since its appearance. You will not be disappointed by this revised, first edition of the OAB, especially if you are keen to avoid PC language as is deployed in the third (2000) and fourth (2009/10) editions based on an otherwise-fine NRSV. At all events, this RSV edition is easy on the pocketbook and rewarding to the synapses. A leather edition of this O.A.B. is available for those readers preferring its durability.

Not much to say other than it was what I wanted. This version has been around for a while, so I have no need to comment on it.
