The Bible is well thought, planned, and laid out, as with most Thomas Nelson Bibles. This is my first chronological Bible and is a few down the list before I get deep into study. However just an initial observation indicates quality and substance. My only disappointment had nothing to do with the Bible but with the imprint of my initials. There is already a small globe similar to a watermark on the bottom right hand corner of the cover. I had hope my initials would either be centered under the globe or aligned with the base of it, but what I got was my initials appearing to be haphazardly placed to the left of the globe, neither aligned with the bottom, center, nor even top, just about a quarter of the way up floating on the cover.
Again, i give the BIBLE 5 stars, it is wonderful. Just wish more thought had gone into the personalization. That being said, maybe you can indicate where you would like the placement if you order with your name of initials as well. Hope this review was helpful.
This bible is easy to follow, with great features that help you to visualize when these events took place. It has historical information that coincides with events making it more interesting. I actually enjoy reading it, and it is not a something I feel I have to do. It is something I want to do. The workmanship of the book itself is of high quality and it is just a joy to own.
This Bible has a lot of historical facts about the times and generations involved in the passages. It gives a picture of how life was at that particular time of history. Things are not necessarily in the regular places that I am used to since it is chronological. It does have an index in the back that can direct you to the proper passage by page number. It is a great Bible. There are also many pictures included.
I absolutely love my new Chronological Study Bible. I have been waiting years to purchase it and when I discovered christianbooks.com I was so thrilled at their prices, quality and HUGE quantity selection that I couldn't help but place my orders. Christianbooks.com is easy to navigate and detailed in product information. I have also phoned in orders and was completely astonished at the friendly professional phone staff, they explained what I was ordering and offered other items that came along with it (such as name engraving and different styles).
Thank You so much christianbooks.com for having one of the best products, prices and staff,
