I had to buy this one to cover and compare with my other versions. No bible collection is complete without this version. The only thing that bothers me is the literal translation from the KJV. It seems as if they make light of fornication by calling it sexual immortality. All in all I like the book have to keep in mind that there are somethings good with each version. I would definitely suggest someone include this in their collections of bibles for study person. There are maps and charts and subject headings but no center column reference. The reference is at the bottom of the page. It also has a concordance as well. Check it out for yourself. You will not regret owning this version.
