I have a Macarthur Study bible that I purchased over 10 years ago and I love it. I was excited that my daughter was old enough to get her one for Christmas. This bible is terrible. Several of the pages were folded over and when I tried to straighten them they were not cut correctly to the rest of the Bible and so I just had to fold them back over. Pages are ridiculously thin. This bible will not hold up at the most three years!! I had it personalized and instead of putting it in the typical lower left hand corner, it was oddly placed about one inch from the bottom and about two inches from the left edge. This is a ridiculous book. I learned my lesson and never buy something this important online. I called customer service and they are sending me a postage paid return label. Don't buy, huge disappointment.
This is a nice Bible with all the information about each book & scripture references.
The reason I didn't give it more stars is because the pages (tissue paper) is very thin. I can see the shadow of print coming from the other side. It makes it a little difficult for me to read, easily.
My Daughter just purchased this Bible & loves it. So maybe younger eyes won't have a problem with it.
This Bible is well organized, thorough, and answers questions skeptics, and Christians alike (like myself), may have about God's Word, His plan of redemption, etc. Reading just the Intro of this Bible renewed a desire in me to study God's word thoroughly. I think this is the last Bible I'll invest in because it has everything that'll help me study God's word thru & thru. It shows, throughout the pages, that MacArthur & his staff worked diligently in putting this together. I highly recommend this Bible!
