The Holman Study Bible provides excellent notes and cross references. I particularly like the layout and quality of the pages as they allow me to make my own notes and to hi-light without worrying about bleed through.
I like the quality of the leather and the binding of this bible is of excellent quality and I love the full color pictures in the New King James Holman study Bible and the study helps are very helpful.
This has to be the first ever full color study bible that I have ever seen in the New King James Version that is THIS informative. The Genuine Leather binding is supreme, the bible itself is smyth-sewn, so its durability is strong. It contains full color pictures, maps, timelines, silver gilt page edges, TWO ribbon markers, one in black, and the other in red. The words of Jesus are in red letter, and really informative study notes.
This is the type of study bible that you can't go wrong with, and I own quite a few of them, but this one is superb, and is definitely an excellent source of study for serious students of the Word of God.
