My goodness, that thing makes the Schuyler Quentel NASB look like a pocket New Testament.
LOL. Quite impressive.
If you had the choice between this study Bible and the Ignatius Study Bible; which one would you think would be more worth acquiring?(Minus the fact that the Old Testament is not complete yet.)What would you think is the strength and weakness of each?God bless!CS
Yes this is a 'thick' Bible, but with the synthetic flexible cover and the rounded spine it is surprisingly comfortable to read while holding it in your hand. I have found myself using 'The Catholic Study Bible' from Oxford more often though due to the 500 page reading guide in the front of the Bible. I have also decided that I like double column text rather than single column.
CS,They are different in emphasis. The Little Rock relies on the NABRE intros and commentary and supplements them with helpful in-text boxes, maps, and charts. The NABRE notes tend to be more historical in nature, compared with the ICSB. It is a massive Bible, but its single-column page format is one of my favorites. The ICSB, which as you mentioned is still not finished, has more apologetics material, while also focusing on the historical and theological point of view. The complete Bible was suppose to be done by 2016, that we will have to see.It would also be important to consider which translation you prefer, the NABRE or RSV-2CE.
Does the Little Rock Bible give any reference to Church Doctrine or Church Fathers? Either translation is fine with me(though I usually use the NABRE since it is the "Official" Bible translation). Though the ICSB is probably more "traditional"for lack of a better word.
Not many. There are a few here and there. The ICSB does far more. Your assessment about the ICSB being a more traditional one is true
Anon, you might want to check out the Didache Bible (NABRE) from MTF (previewed here). It has the same Didache notes as the RSV-2ce Didache Bible plus the NABRE notes!
