i like the book instroduction for each chapter but the study bible lacks maps within the pages. After i read thru the Life Application Study Bible, i wished that i saw that first before my purchase of the Jeremiah Study Bible. i still like this bible and enjoy reading the sections for Reflection, Historically Speaking and Tough Questions and others that adds more depth to the reading of each chapter. As far as the physical aspect i agree with others evaluation that the section right before the content section ripped off at the middle only few days into my usage.
This bible is very cheaply made. Brand new out of the box, the leather cover was already separating in one of the corners. The color is more of a grey than a black. As far as the pages go, the paper is extremely thin and feels really cheap. There are numerous spots in the print where its faded and smudged. I have had bonded leather bibles that were better made.
On a positive note, the information given, the notes, maps, etc. are very good!
If the bible was better made, this would be a great bible.
With the notes, study guides, and references, I found reading the Bible easier. The notes make everything easier to understand. Since I have gotten this edition of the Bible, I have read at least two chapters a day and all the gospels. I actually find it hard to put down. Even Leviticus and Numbers were easier to read. Thank you.
