Oxford Annotated Bible 4th edition  May 23, 2010
Then annotation and notes have been thoroughly revised and updated..ie the Introduction to the Acts of the Apostles indicates a thorough revision..along the lines of the Christian and Jewish Identification as it relates to the Text in Acts ...with a late First Century or early second century date for Acts.
 
A Sound Beginning for Studying Scripture  Mar 8, 2010
New Oxford Annotated Bible retains its status as a "go-to Study Bible" for those wishing to better understand cultural and historical settings of the communities for and from which Hebrew and Christian scriptures originated. (Those desiring to similarly understand how the Bible may be received by various cultures today will benefit on consulting "The Peoples' Bible" in turn.) With a new, tighter binding and nicer page layout, though with a font-size verging on too-small for its essays, this will be an edition that continues to appeal to those in academic settings and communities of faith.

Among contributors enlivening the fourth edition are both long-established scholars, such as Terence E. Fretheim, writing on the book of Numbers, and those newer to the field, such as Julia M. O'Brien, who anotates a number of the briefer prophets. Commentary retained from the previous edition sometimes suggests certainty on key texts which, for other scholars, have been well-argued otherwise (as, for example, on the NRSV shift from "do not kill" to "do not murder" in the Ten Commandments). Neil Elliott's valuable, set-in-its-context-of-empire commentary on Romans remains. Four-and-a-half stars.
 
Three versions -- are you sure you're buying the right one?  Mar 2, 2010
The New Oxford Annotated Bible with Apocrypha: New Revised Standard Version has three separate ISBNs. Take a look at the following differences to help you differentiate:

ISBN 978-0195289596 is the college edition. According to Oxford University Press, this simply means that this version does not have the concordance. This will have fewer pages than the other two versions.

ISBN 978-0195289558 is the hardcover edition.

ISBN 978-0195289565 is the hardcover index edition, meaning there are little tabs on the side of each page, indicating books of the bible.

A welcome update  Feb 25, 2010
I just received copies of the New Oxford Annotated Apocrypha, which is an excerpt of the larger NOAB, 4th edition. I was very pleased with this newest release in a long, distinguished history of Oxford Study Bibles. The physical quality of the book takes a step forward from previous editions. The pages are of a thicker stock, and therefore almost opaque and easy to handle. [Note: This proves only to be true for the "Apocrypha only" edition, unfortunately; the complete Bible has the typically thinner paper stock, with "bleed through."] The font and layout have been well designed to allow for more "white space" on the page to aid reading. The shift to paragraph-style annotations rather than the two-column format is a visual improvement. The fonts are smaller than the third edition that I had been using (the original Murphy-Metzger 3rd edition, not the augmented 3rd), and that's never a good thing with my particular set of eyes.

The annotations are more generous than in previous editions, and I regard this as a great step forward. I used to recommend the HarperCollins Study Bible over the NOAB to my students for this reason, but I think that will now change. In the interest of fair disclosure, I am prejudiced toward this edition, having contributed the introduction and annotations to 4 Maccabees (does anyone out there ever really read 4 Maccabees?). But I stand in much more distinguished company in this volume. Three of the authors are immediately recognized figures, "deans" of Second Temple Judaism and its literature -- John Collins on 3 Maccabees, Lester Grabbe on Wisdom of Solomon, and Daniel Harrington on Ben Sira. Many others are acknowledged specialists on the book for which they provide annotations, such as Theodore Bergren (the foremost scholar on 2 Esdras 1-2, 15-16) on 2 Esdras, John Bartlett (author of a fine guide to this book) on 1 Maccabees, Daniel Schwartz (author of the new standard in commentaries on this book) on 2 Maccabees, and Lawrence Wills (specialist on tales of Jews in foreign courts) on Judith. The remaining contributors are no less distinguished, including, for example, Amy-Jill Levine (whose prolific and consistently solid scholarship defies classification) on Tobit and the Additions to Daniel. I am reasonably sure that when I receive my copy of the entire NOAB 4th edition, I shall be equally excited about the contributors to the Hebrew Scriptures and New Testament [This has since proven true, having received the complete Bible yesterday. Many of the contributors have written commentaries, or at least academic books, on the Scriptural text for which they provide annotations here].

Congratulations to Michael Coogan and his team of editorial colleagues (Marc Brettler, Carol Newsom, and Pheme Perkins) on this remarkable achievement, giving anyone who cares to use this edition such expert guidance on reading and entering into the Scriptures!
