5 Stars Out Of 5
A great choice for a study Bible
March 16, 2015
I've only read the first few books of this edition of the Bible, but I'm very pleased with what I've read so far. The commentary seems consistently helpful. The layout is nice. Extra features are appreciated as well. In terms of content (in addition to the ESV), I appreciate the consistency with which the commentary relates what is happening in the Old Testament to Christ and his work recorded in the New Testament.
As a lifelong Baptist, I'll have to agree to disagree on the explanation of infant baptism, but even that discussion was fair in presenting both sides of the subject. The reformed theology sets well with me, and I pleasantly smile at the frequency of the references to "the elect" in the notes.
I usually read a new translation or study edition every 1-2 years, but so far this has the feel of earning a longer-term place in my usage. I recommend it highly.
