I was very impressed with this bible, it's not my 1st, but currently it's my favorite. Alot of information packed on each page. This is a happy, self purchase find, and at a good price. I wish there was a dictionary included.
This bible has so many neat little features, all very user friendly. I really liked how each book of the bible is started with a note about the author of that particular book, the dates the book was written, a bit of background to the book, the central theme and an outline of the book. There are short, devotional lessons scattered throughout each book dealing with different topics that I found interesting and got me into what God's Word says about specific topics. And my nerd heart loved the fact that at the bottom of each page there were notes to specific verses that explained all sorts of things from definitions to descriptions to references. These study helps really expanded, brought understanding and/or enriched various passages that I read. And my love of a good quote also enjoyed all the various quotes from inspirational Christian women scattered throughout. I'll definitely be using this bible when I study or want to glean more understanding.
