I am shocked that so many readers (undiscerning or immature perhaps?) give this atrocity a 5 star rating! It matters very little how attractive the packaging, placing secular history and evolutionary theory on an even footing with the inerrant, God-breathed text of Scripture is extremely dangerous, if not down right evil! Casting doubt on the validity of Scripture is nothing new though. It goes all the way back to the Garden of Eden when the old crafty serpent innocently asked, "Has God indeed said ...?" (Gen. 3:1NKJV). This is a liberal hatchet job of the most dangerous kind, in particular to the unwary and to a still developing Christian. I too join the chorus of the dissenters here. Like the sons of the prophets cried out to Elisha, "Man of God, there is death in the pot!" (2 Kings 4:40). Stay away!
I am a pastor and bought several of these Bibles to give away to members of the church as gifts after they completed various reading logs and devotionals that I wrote for the church. What a great reward this Bible has become for them! It is beautifully crafted and durable, with lots of great study notes. It encourages the average reader to read more...the very thing I was after!
Let me start by saying that reading the NKJ version (actual scripture) is GREAT and for that I give it 5 stars, but that is where it ends! As for some of the ignorant men ( and by that I mean obviously they truly don't believe that God is who he says He is and have No business commentating on Gods word) I feel sorry for you! The Bible is very clear in Revelation 22: 18-19. God is very specific about those who take away from or add to His word and what will happen to them. In many of the sidebars you intimate that God or Yahweh is not who he says He is. If that is the way you think you either need to repent and get right with God or you need to stay away from writing or speaking about Gods word. It may sound harsh but part of the reason the world is in the shape it's in is because Gods people won't stand up for what is right! If you are looking for a study Bible that is true to Gods Holy and Righteous word then you need to look elsewhere!
