My teen daughter asked for a study bible for Christmas. Her youth director recommended Life in the Spirit Study Bible. She hasn't had it long, but is satisfied with it so far. Also, my husband bought himself one, and surprised me with one also.
I got this Bible for myself because I really liked my Mother-In-Laws Bible, she has the other version (The Full Life Study Bible) and I don't see that big of a difference. I wish it had the extras at the beginning where you could write stuff (you know dates and stuff) but that's ok, it's not a big deal. It's a very nice Bible. Study notes are really nice as well. I did notice that some of the print (black & red) on the pages does vary, some of the print is darker/lighter on the pages but it's not a big deal. You probably get that with all Bibles. It wouldn't be a reason for me not to get it. I would highly recommend this Bible.
