I have enjoyed this version for many years! It's so easy to read, and you can spend 1 hour or many hours following all it's commentaries and references to other parts of God's story. It is full of information that is easy to understand...I love it! The hard copy has larger print than the paper bound. I keep buying more for my friends!
The study topics are excellent, especially for Teens and young adults. I prefer a "Study Bible" that permits me to take notes, highlight, underline etc. This "Study Bible" has very thin pages and very small font. Not really what I expected for a "Study Bible", but content is good.
Generally speaking this "Study Bible" has some interesting study topics. I however, prefer a "Study Bible" that permits me to take notes, highlight and underline items for reference. The pages are too thin to allow note taking, highlighting and such. Additionally, the font is much smaller than I had expected.
It's not a 9-10 point size print. It's more like 8 point and the study notes are 7-7.5. I have a 9 pt print and standard print (8 pt) Bible that I compared it with. I was so hoping for a 9 point; this really is a fantastic Bible!
I purchased this bible as a gift for my son. Before wrapping it I took a look at the contents and was really impressed. So much so that I plan to get a copy for myself. It was like having a detailed commentary combined with the Word. Much more detailed than the average footnotes you find in bibles.
