NKJV Jeremiah Study Bible, Hardcover
The study Bible is not what I expected.
I love David Jeremiah. I have read almost everything he has written and loved it. Unfortunately I was a bit disappointed in the study Bible. However I have just skimmed it. Quite possibly I will come to enjoy it more the deeper I get into it. I have never been disappointed in anything else he has done.

A GREAT BLESSING
David Jeremiah is a wise and mature servant of the Lord, and this study Bible reflects that. In reading this Bible, I feel as though I am sharing a Bible Study with Dr. Jeremiah. I'm taking my time, reading the text in sections, reading the footnotes, the boxed notes, and taking the time to check the cross references, even if I am familiar with them.
Is David Jeremiah infallible? No, of course not. Do I always agree with every single thing he says? No. Am I blessed spiritually by studying with this wonderful teacher? YES, I am.
This Bible is excellent quality by today's standards. Years ago, type used to be darker most of the time, and red letter, which I find distracting, didn't exist. I would be wrong to downgrade the quality of this book just because it is constructed and printed according to modern standards. The binding is sturdy, and I expect it to last.
The paper is very thin. Good Bible paper IS thin. And this book is loaded with information. If the paper were thicker, you couldn't carry the book -- or it would be necessary to make the type a lot smaller. So consider before you complain about the delicate paper. Thin paper is actually less likely to be damaged if you handle it carefully.
This is a big, book - relatively heavy as it is. I won't read this one lying down in bed. I have a smaller one for reading before I sleep. THIS book is a STUDY Bible -- and I settled down this morning in a good chair and with good light to read. Considering my age, I might have needed a magnifying glass and didn't. If you find the type looks light, MOVE THE BOOK SO THE LIGHT REFLECTION OFF THE PAGE IS MITIGATED. That makes it really quite readable. If you need a magnifying glass, get one you find convenient to use, because it's worth the effort to do that.
As always, I am benefitting from David Jeremiah's concise, clear, and unusually helpful insights and his ways of explaining things. I use an Old Scofield, a New Scofield, a Nelson KJV Study Bible which used to be the Liberty Annotated KJV, a Ryrie, the Archeological Study Bible (some notes a bit liberal in that one), and more. I find a good study Bible to be a convenient way to enjoy the benefit of what feels like dialogue with men of God, because I stop and think about what they say.
I think this one is my new favorite. David Jeremiah's incisive and very clear insights penetrate the confusion often generated by misunderstandings or by those who have an axe to grind in interpretation.
I highly recommend this Bible. I pray it will be a blessing to each individual who purchases one or who receives one as a gift.

Excellent Study Bible
This is a wonderful study bible. Very thorough and detailed notes and explanations. I have the upmost respect for Dr. Jeremiah and his ministry at Turning Point- and this study bible is a quality reflection for his desire for God's word.
