This is a wonderful study Bible for all. My entire family uses it, and I purchase these for those I find in need of a new or replacement Bible. The notes by J.M. aid greatly in understanding the passages being studied, and promote a deeper desire to stay in the Word of God.
All of my family has this Bible. I purchase the J.M. Study Bible for my other family members and those we find in need of a Bible in our neighborhood. The notes are very clear and hermeneutically correct.
In the past, I have loved the KJV, NIV and NAS, but now I have loved the English Standard Version. John MacArthur's notes in each of those Bibles have really helped me when I am studying. Everyone in my Bible Study thought I was smart...until they started getting the MacArthur Study Bible! Now we all really enjoy learning equally, together. This particular Bible's cover is beautiful, protective yet has a soft touch to it. I love my new Bible and hope to pass this marked up & underlined Bible on to my kids when I'm gone to heaven.
