"A very scholarly edition with footnotes and a lengthy introduction to each of the items in the apocrypha that helped to understand authorship and social/historical context."
"The physical quality of the book takes a step forward from previous editions. The pages are of a thicker stock, and therefore almost opaque and easy to handle. This is a great improvement on previous editions of the NOA Apocrypha, which used the "onion skin" paper for which Bibles are famous. The font and layout have been well designed to allow for more "white space" on the page to aid reading. The shift to paragraph-style annotations rather than the two-column format is a visual improvement."
