I'm so thankful for ' no notes' - I get to study and the Holy Spirit guides me before I go to 'notes' in commentaries. Wide margins are excellent in allowing my own 'notes'. Absolutely excellent product.
This is the best Bible I've ever had and it's the first genuine leather Bible I've owned. Has lots of cross references, study helps, and teaches you to study the Bible yourself. Occasionally I like to read commentaries, but there is nothing better than for God to show you a truth and then read a commentary and see the agreement between the two.
I love this translation. I brought it for school because our teacher wanted us to use this translation. I now, primarily use this translation. It is easy to read. It provides a study guide to help you to study God's Word. My mom saw it and she loves it. I am going to surprise her with one for her birthday. It is great for the student or for everyday study.
I was impressed with the "feel" of this Bible right out of the box -- it was apparent it is a high-quality Bible that will last a lifetime. I had not really had any experience with the NASB Version in the past but a lady from our Church liked it so I thought I would give it a try. After a month of daily Bible study I am very happy with the translation, easy to read and understand -- it's quickly become my favorite!
