- Distinctive approach.The Study Bible addresses diverse students, practices sound pedagogy, and encourages critical thinking. Topics include those on cultural, ethnic, social, gender, and political issues and speak to today’s reader, explaining the context of the Bible’s writing.
- Navigation-friendly organization. Two academic introductions—Anselm and NABRE (New American Bible Revised)—preface each of the biblical books; other resources sensibly and accessibly arranged.
