I follow the teaching and preaching of GTY and John MacArthur. Reading the great commentary and insightful notes from the ESV MacArthur Study Bible is a great way to start the day. Spending time in the Word is a great blessing and having access to the insights and study of Dr. MacArthur just helps with better understanding the reasons and details of the inspired Word.
I am learning to use my MacArthur ESV Bible so I can't give it a complete review. However, I am amazed and disappointed that it is unavailabe in large print. For the elderly or those with vision problems, this Bible is a real challenge. Additionally, I wish it was "tabbed". It is irritating to be scrambling for a book when the pastor calls for you to turn to it and while you're looking for it he continues with his sermon. (That, admittedly, may be partaly the pastor's fault, but there are certainly other instances where you want to be able to turn to a book quickly and tabs would be so helpful.) My biggest concern, however, remains the small print.
This is a very nice hard cover Bible. The font is easy to read and not too small. It has many study guides and features which are nice. The notes on each verse by MacArthur are very interesting and informative. It's a little on the big side to carry back and forth to church but if you want a good study Bible, this is one to consider.
It's cheaply made but the content is priceless. I feel like I have to be careful when I turn the pages. The thumb dividers are not worth the extra money and neither is the engraving. It was not centered properly for my name. That said. I would recommend the content to anyone who desires more "meat" in their spiritual diet. The notes and references are excellent.
