The NRSV, like it or not, is a Church approved translation. And as far as I can tell and have searched for, this is the only Bible out there with a Church approved translation that features wide margins for bible study note taking. It is an area we are severely behind in.
This edition contains the "Apocrypha" which also includes (I assume) all the extra books like 3+4 Maccabees and the rest. It was reviewed here on the Bible Design Blog. He gave it a good review. I wish the blogger would also look at Catholic Bibles. Our publishers would do well to review that site and see what goes into a serious quality Bible.
