Oxford University Press has recently released the Oxford Encyclopedia of the Books of the Bible. This is an outstandingly extensive work that will soon be available through the university’s Digital Reference Shelf.
Indeed, the Digital Reference Shelf can be considered a content-heavy method for users to monitor the Oxford Press’ literary updates. The university has launched a great series for specialized reference works, the Books of the Bible being the first in it. Oxford claimed that each of the titles will be looking at a subfield in biblical studies. In other words, keen researchers should better prepare for the Digital Reference edition.
The Bible Encyclopedia will be available next month, hardback for around $300. In the book, the readers will find entries from more than a hundred scholars from all over the world. In addition, the encyclopedia also has a long list of cross references, let alone a list of numerous abbreviations.
Indeed, each of the 150 entries, each containing from 500 to 10,000 words, would cast your eye over the Bible’s canon. According to Oxford Press, it includes in the New and Old Testaments, coupled with thematic essays of all kinds, such as translation, textual criticism and canonicity. Finally, there are also entries available on the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Nag Hammadi Library. All of this is Coptic to us.
Oxford University Press is recognized as the largest university press worldwide. It’s actually a department of the University of Oxford, governed by 15 academics appointed by the Vice-Chancellor. The CEO of the press is the Secretary to the Delegates, who acts as a major representative on other university bodies. It should be noted that Oxford University has used the same system to oversee the press since the 17th century.

|personally i would rather have a real book than a digitized book.|
its easier to find things in books and easier to read than to have to sit at your computer trying to read hundreds of pages...
at least there are ebook readers now, but its still not the same as a real book.
fortunately, the rest of the world doesn't follow the US or UK and still has newspapers and books and from the countries i have been to, they are not about to change from printed material.
also, many countries have newspapers that are free, and have very high readership, all paid for by advertisements... its a lesson in a business model that should be followed.
