The new batch of NISB's both in the ESV and NASB translations, are not the same quality as the previous prints (done only in the NASB translation): the paper is thinner, leaving more bleed through and making it harder to mark and erase on the page (the whole purpose of this Study Bible), and the margins near the gutter are smaller. Also, the burgundy leather is a much brighter tone than previously, mine is pinkish, which is just not acceptable to me, so I do not use it (got a leatherette grey one instead). If you do not care too much about translation, get an NASB in the previous edition (still available in some websites).
Good notes and cross references. Maps are excellent as are the timelines. They are placed at the perfect spots throughout the text. The commentary is skimpy but would give a good head start to background and context. Margins are narrower than my old NIV single column Bible so I don't write as many notes. Good quality product for $60.
This is my first Inductive Study Bible and it is just what I wanted! I'm looking forward to this new experience! It is well made with a nice feel and I like the cover, the color is OK but beside that it's perfect! ESV is my Bible of choice so I was pleased to see it in this format.
This was exactly what I was looking for. I love marking up my Bible with colored pencils and having all the references to other passages to help me make amazing connections. This is a fantastic study tool and I look forward to my time with the Lord every day. Granted, time with the Lord is great by itself, but this Bible really enhances the experience. I like that I get to make all the connections and am not influenced by the study notes from others. Well done!
