With so many study Bibles from which to choose, the Companion Bible is a superior choice. In addition to the helpful and ACCURATE appendices, the Companion truly acts as a "companion" of information and insight that is rarely found in other publications. One of my favorite aspects is that the comments do not tell me what to believe; they merely give additional information and allow me to make my own decisions. I do not think study Bibles should tell us what to believe; that is the job of the Holy Spirit. Do not be frightened by the King James language. Overall, this Bible is a wonderful choice!!
At first glance this version was a little overwhelming. Upon further study I found it to be a wealth of information. The 198 appendixes are full of useful and easily understood information. A noted TV Pastor recommends this for deeper understanding of Gods word, I would have to agree with him. Just the appendixes alone are worth the price.
