The first part of my review of the New Oxford Annotated Bible, 4th Edition (hereafter NOAB4) will focus more on appearance than on content.
Here is a picture of the 3rd and 4th editions. The 4th edition is on top.
|Page Numbering||Page numbering varies depending on the section: [785 Hebrew Bible] or [257 New Testament].||Page numbering is sequential and consistent throughout: Hebrew Bible | 613 or New Testament | 2067.|
Misc cosmetic changes:
- The print of the NOAB4 is smaller than the print in the NOAB3.
I like the change made in the numbering of pages. The page numbering in the NAOB3 didn’t make much sense. Concerning the font size, the smaller print of the NAOB4 hasn’t really bothered me. I like that the NAOB4 is a little thinner than the NAOB3. I used the NAOB3 during seminary, and it was a beast to lug to and from class. All in all, I approve of the cosmetic changes.
My next post will look at the content of the NOAB4.
