Finding the right Bible is a challenging task... and yet this Bible was exactly what I was looking for - its portable size makes it easy to take to church and Bible study. Because of its size and the fact that it is still a commentary Bible, the font size is small, but I find it still easy enough to read (although as I age, this may change!). The ESV version is excellent for studying while still maintaining easy readability. John MacArthur's notes are invaluable as he explains passages with clarity and wisdom. This Bible has everything I was looking for and I greatly appreciate it!
No one brings truth explained, verse by verse, better than John MacArtur. ESV version is the best translation that most keeps the context from the original Hebrew and Greek translations. Some translations, (new NIV), is more liberal and strays somewhat from original translations.
This Bible is fantastic for someone just starting to read God's Word, to the person who is digging deeper in their relationship with God. My 15 year old son wanted this one after reading my copy.
