Useful, informative, well made. The Hardcover edition works fine and lays out nicely with my other books and computer as I study. I love the Love of Christ the entire Morris Family exhibits and this true faith and deep love for the knowledge of the Holy comes through in this study Bible as well as the Days of Praise devotionals that prompted me to purchase this, my first real study Bible.
I got this for my 15-year-old daughter and she absolutely loves it. There are many interesting study-helps and notes that really aid in the understanding of the Scriptures. We would highly recommend it.
I bought this bible (hardcover) soon after I became a Christian and I thoroughly enjoyed using it. The footnotes are innumerable and biblically sound; there is a strong emphasis on the fact that God actually did make the earth in six days like he says he did which I found refreshing. Historical notes are often interesting and most "contradictions" are debunked. Translational notes (meanings of original Greek/Hebrew words) are helpful. Key passages are thoroughly annotated. There are also a number of articles included at the end of the bible as well as a small concordance. My only noteworthy issue with Morris' notes is that they support a number of questionable topics such as the "pre-tribulation rapture" and the idea that the Nephilim in Genesis were "demon-energized" giants and that the Sons of God in the same passage were actually fallen angels; these positions are not thoroughly defended in my mind (this is why I gave four stars.)
Bottom line: if you're interested in buying a study bible, I recommend this one.
