This is an excellent presentation of the Holy Bible. I recommend it to anyone who would like a thorough introduction to the background of the scriptures with a clear concise explanation of the times in which the books were written. Dr. David Jeremiah provides excellent explanations of the meaning of certain passages of scripture for the ordinary person to explore and pray over. This is a great version of the Holy Bible for the ordinary person. It is rich in instructions and illustrations without being over bearing and does not require a college degree in theology to understand it. The "NKJV Jeremiah Study Bible" is an excellent resource for pastors as well. Dr. Jeremiah provides reference materials and additional study suggestions for pastors to use in their study of scripture and the presentation of God's word to their congregations.
