Great Bible for reading/study and even greater reference Bible --- I've even used quotes from the expanded version during sermons for my congregation to listen and for better understanding during the sermon(s) -- i.e. "The Expanded Bible renders the passage this way.......".
The Expanded Bible is a more accurate edition of the New Century Version that captures the nuances of the literal Greek and Hebrew text through the use of bracketed literal translations and comments. Clear, single column font make this Bible very readable. Recommendations: add Book Intros and a concordance. Excellent value for the money! Smyth Sewn binding.
