Other NRSV study Bibles provide factual information about the biblical text, but don't include extensive guidance for Christian living. "The Discipleship Study Bible" is unique in offering both. Its annotations emphasize the personal and communal implications of the Bible for today without sacrificing the tools needed for understanding the ancient texts on their own terms. In combining these approaches to Bible study, a group of gifted writers, editors, and scholars have produced a truly comprehensive resource that includes introductory essays to each book of the Bible by top-notch contemporary Bible scholars; the complete text of the New Revised Standard Version, including Apocrypha; a chronology of the events and literature of ancient Israel and early Christianity; a concise concordance; and eight pages of color maps.
