This version comes from a background of exceptionally strong scholarship. It's notes alone are worth acquiring a copy. You can get free electronic copyies on the transating organization's web site, bible.org, and you can buy copies in various fine editions as well. I don't anticipate this becoming my standard "carrying" Bible, but I do find myself referring to it more and more in study.
At the time I write this note, the NET Bible is not available via Amazon.com. Go to bible.org to shop for this Bible.
