I got this Bible at my baptism and I LOVE IT!!!! I read it every morning and it really helps because of the notes. The print is not too small which is good. I am also glad because it has a concordance in the back which has all the main words. This is my favorite Bible.
My brother and I (age 11 and 12) received this as a gift from our parents after our baptism. Love the colors! It is very understandable and the notes give so much insight that I actually highlight them sometimes! :) The small concordance in the back is QUITE handy!
I have an ESV Study Bible which I like and use. However, I have a little trouble with the single column print. It is a little hard for me to read. I prefer double column. The ESV Student Study Bible is the answer. It has double column print. It also has many colored illustrations, many short character profiles, and book introductions and foot notes that are a condensed version of the ESV Study Bible, all good features. I especially like the DID YOU KNOW? boxes on nearly every page. That is one of the best features I have ever seen in a Study Bible.
