The New Interpreter’s Study Bible offers outstanding biblical scholarship in a concise and accessible format to help contemporary readers better understand Scripture. The contributors are theologically diverse biblical scholars representing Roman Catholic, mainline Protestant, Jewish, and evangelical faith traditions. The NISB’s most significant feature is its emphasis on the theological meaning of the text, emphasizing the significance of the biblical text for the life and faith of both ancient communities and contemporary individuals and congregations.

Other key features of the NISB include the full NRSV text of the Bible and the Apocrypha, six general articles on interpreting the Bible, extensive commentary for each book of the Bible including the Apocrypha, special notes and excursuses that provide additional information above and beyond the commentary, nineteen maps, chronologies of events in biblical history, and a glossary.
