I know others have requested it but maybe with enough votes we can get it.

The premier study Bible used by scholars, pastors, undergraduate and graduate students, The New Oxford Annotated Bible with Apocrypha offers a vast range of information, including extensive notes by experts in their fields; in-text maps, charts, and diagrams; supplementary essays on translation, biblical interpretation, cultural and historical background, and other general topics.

Extensively revised--half of the material is brand new--featuring a new design to enhance readability, and brand-new color maps, the Annotated Fourth Edition adds to the established reputation of this essential biblical studies resource. Many new and revised maps, charts, and diagrams further clarify information found in the Scripture text. In addition, section introductions have been expanded and the book introductions present their information in a standard format so that students can find what they need to know. Of course, the Fourth Edition retains the features prized by students, including single column annotations at the foot of the pages, in-text charts, and maps, a page number-keyed index of all the study materials in the volume, and Oxford's renowned Bible maps. This timely edition maintains and extends the excellence the Annotated's users have come to expect, bringing still more insights, information, and perspectives to bear upon the understanding of the biblical text.  

• The renowned New Revised Standard Version Bible translation, the scholarly standard for study of the Bible
• Wholly revised, and greatly expanded book introductions and annotations.
• In-text background essays on the major divisions of the biblical text.
• Essays on the history of the formation of the biblical canon for Jews and various Christian churches.
• More detailed explanations of the historical background of the text. 
• More in-depth treatment of the history and varieties of biblical criticism. 
• A timeline of major events in the ancient Near East.
• A full index to all of the study materials, keyed to the page numbers on which they occur.
• A full glossary of scholarly and critical terms.
• 36-page section of full color New Oxford Bible Maps, approximately 40 in-text line drawing maps and diagrams. 

Classic but not stodgy, up-to-date but not trendy, The New Oxford Annotated Bible: 4th Edition is ready to serve new generations of students, teachers, and general readers.

This is very much a standard religious studies class edition of the Bible. FL should carry it.

I have heard from other software companies OUP wants too much money to allow them to offer it, but as you stated it is the standard for universities, and if FL wants to make themselves the choice of higher learning they should offer it. Right now if you want it in Bible software you have to purchase Wordsearch and even then it is only the 3rd Augmented edition and not the current 4th edition.

It would definitely be a good candidate for a reference package aimed at religious studies majors.

Even Noet humanities packages would likely benefit from it.

I agree.  New Oxford Annotated Bible would be a great addition to the Logos offering.
