    Very useful I have found this to be a very useful addition to my collection of study materials. The NRSV translation is my preferred one and to have it allows with such a comprehensive body of historical, cultural and interpretive material is wonderful. There are many good essays that add so much depth to the work. I use this study Bible in the Kindle form and I find the ease of moving around the text to be very easy. The kindle using reader has been considered well
