The Oxford Study Bible Study Bible supplemented with commentary from scholars of various religions.

Reading This Bible

M. Jack Suggs

The preceding essay suggests that knowledge and skills other than those needed to read the morning newspaper are important for “Reading the Bible” intelligently. Originally written in languages with which most speakers of modern English are unfamiliar, the Bible's many documents were composed or compiled in the remote past and over an extended period, in social settings and for cultures different from the reader's own. Therefore, the Bible must be translated from ancient languages to contemporary English, to be sure. But information about its ancient historical and cultural environment also increases understanding. The Oxford Study Bible is meant to facilitate informed reading by bringing together a superior modern translation and a collection of basic study aids.
