I've been enjoying Ryrie Study Bibles for almost 25 years. The Ryrie system is easy to follow and understand. These new, updated Ryrie's provide so much more study helps than the older ones. Still, the Ryrie does not overwhelm you with too much information. The binding on this particular Bible is wonderful. I look forward to years of enjoyment studying this Bible.
I searched for almost 6 months for a study bible with calfskin leather that wasn't too large for daily use. This bible is exactly what I wanted. It isn't too thick or too heavy for everyday use and it is without a doubt the best quality bible I have ever owned. The leather is soft and the pages lay flat regardless of where it is opened. The paper is excellent quality and so far I have found no defects. It just feels good to hold in your hands! The fact that it is a Ryrie ESV version only makes it that much better. I have 5 other study bibles that I reference but this is the one I will use.
