Great learning Bible. Good quality, nice monogramming. Only issue I have is with Zondervan. My gf has a soft cover version of this for another version of the Bible. I'd prefer that to the leather, but still a wonderful Bible to read for the year.
The NAS Bible with the Life Application is an excellent resource with great helps for teaching classes as well as studying for my Bachelor Degree in Bible Studies. This particular Bible was given as a gift to a new convert because I believe it will increase her growth to maturity.
For those that don't want heavy academic footnotes. The Life Application Bible is a great study bible because it gives you practical ways to how to apply God's Word to our lives, and in this version, the NASB is one of the most accurate translations of the bible.
