All tho I have enjoyed the info that is supplied thru-out this Bible, I really dislike 2 things.
1. The Paragraph style of the KJV text.
2. The way all the notes, outlines, etc break up God's Word.
With a 1/2 page of God's word, then a 1/8 of a page, then a 3rd of a page, etc etc the overall layout is NOT conductive to deep study....there is too much "fluff" breaking up the KJV text all over the place.
For a causal sit-down-&-read it is OK, and the intros & outlines are great, but for true Bible Study skip this one.
I love this Bible! My husband and I received this Bible 8 years ago as a wedding gift from one of my friends. I had a NKJ Bible that I was using so he took the gift as his own. Everytime he wanted to use it, I was using it and vice versa. Since he is a Minister, I gave him priority. I have been wanting to purchase one for myself since then and finally decided to get one as a birthday gift to myself. I haven't put it down. I love the large print, the articles/profiles, the commentary and everything about it. It is a Wonderful Study Bible. You can't go wrong with this Bible!
A major problem I have had with bibles in the past has been notetaking; there is never quite enough room to write out the major themes of a passage in the margins, and I only manage to clutter what space there happens to be to the point where said passages are illegible. With this bible though, that is hardly a problem!
A treasure trove of information lines the bottom of each page, alongside tables and character bios that help the Word get into your heart and nestle there where it should be. A single highlighter is really all that's needed for highlighting favorite verses or important points.
I had a major manufacturing flaw with one of the thumb tabs being stuck to the wrong page, but with careful peeling and some scotch tape it was good as new. Well worth the purchase!
Its a great bible the only issue i have is that its small print.I had meant to order the bigger version and clicked the wrong one. But on the other hand its is a wonderfull bible. I would recommend it to others.
