I'm a new believer and I have to say that out of all my study bibles, I own around 30 now, this one is my absolute favorite. I love the size, note's, the dictionary, questions and answers it offers. But I also love all of my other bibles, they all have something special or different to offer in my studies. But this Quest bible has turned into my primary. There is one little thing that I miss, Red letter. Wish it has the Words of Christ in Red. Other than that, it has far exceeded my expectations. I'm really thinking about getting one for all of my family members for Christmas.
I have purchased this bible or earlier versions of it for quite a few years and I have taken it upon myself as if a 'mission from GOD' to give one to just about everyone I know...I really use my bibles...mark it, put stickers in it...highlight everywhere...the personal size soft cover is the most convenient and user friendly. When I mark up my bible filling in the margins, I buy another. In retrospect, I realize that the several Study Bible's I have represent different times of my life, different times/different needs=different perspective. I read this bible through years ago, now I go straight to my favorite topics...I love not feeling stressed to help everyone out of their discomfort zones...I just buy them the study bible and mark important scriptures to get them started...I also include Halley's Handbook, Strong Concordance and a realiable dictionary. Telling interesting facts (how many sons and daughters Adam and Eve had for instance) really peaks a 'newcomer's' interest. I forgot to look at this last one to see if Jesus' WORDs are printed in red...the print is easy to read and the x-ref scriptures and notations take the stress out of studying the bible and makes one feel like a kid in a candy store and a pocketful of change!I feel the gold index tabs are an absolute must plus marking the bible where to start studying about a particular issue
I had ordered the Quest Bible with intentions of giving it away, but after receiving it decided to keep it for myself. What a beautiful Bible, with so many helps and bits of information. I just love it. And for a very reasonable price
