I absolutely fell in love with this Bible when I opened it. I love all the pictures and the historical background that it gave in regards to bible times and how they lived during that time. I didn't particular care for the commentary part of the bible dealing with creation because it creates a doubt in regards to creation. I would love if they would do a Bible like this again without commentary. Overall, I did like and would recommend this Bible.
This is a beautiful Bible, well made, but has an offensive odor. Probably because of a solvent that was used in the ink or the color that made the pages look antique. I had to return this Bible for that reason.
The Bible is the Word of God. Today it is called; "The King James Version" in order to mock it. This KJV Archaeological Study Bible has notes that bring into question the text of God's Word. e.g.-suggesting that creation days were not 24 hour days. If you want a good Bible, get a King James with no margin notes at all. All "study bibles" contain notes that contradict the text. They can destroy your faith by causing you to doubt God's Word, just as Satan did to Eve in Genesis 3. Exodus 20:11 tells us;"For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day" There is no room for evolution in the Bible. There is no room for evolution in margin notes, either.
The KJV Archaeological Study Bible has helped me put several things into the context of the time and given me insight into a new understanding of why or where something happened. I would recommend this Bible to anyone who wants a deeper historical understanding of the Bible.
