Not that I need another Bible (we have approximately two dozen in  household with only two literate residents), but when at the bookstore today I saw that the English Standard Version now has an edition with the deuterocanon (they labeled it “Apocrypha,” but that’s a po-ta-toe, po-tat-oh issue to me). Following in the tradition of the RSV and NRSV apocrypha editions (not to be confused with the RSV-CE and NRSV-CE), it doesn’t stop with the “extra” Catholic books, but includes the deuterocanonical books (and chapters) used by the Orthodox Church(s). It’s published by Oxford University Press.

Perhaps the ESV will supplant the NRSV as the Oxford Annotated Bible in the future, hopefully with better study notes?
