I ordered this Bible as a gift for my fiance - I had it personalized even though I hadn't seen it in person. I just knew it would be perfect & it is! When my order arrived, it was the first thing I opened & examined...when I took the lid off the box, my response was this: tears in my eyes as I ran my fingertips over the leather & over his monogram - absolutely beautiful & an incredible value. The Nelson Study Bible is a wonderful study guide & greatly enhances the reading experience--any questions as to meaning/understanding are right at your fingertips!
Using this Bible I have really learned so much from it. The commentary is great. It helps me to understand many things I skipped over thinking they were not important. I learned the New Testament is an extension of the Old Testament. You must learn the Torah to understand the New Testament. God Bless the people who put this Study Bible together. Its a great help in finding Gods purpose for us. Thank You!
The Bible I received was missing the last half of Mark and the first third of Luke. The good news is that Thomas Nelson sent me a replacement, including with my name embossed. But, I did have to pay to send the defective Bible to them.
I have just started using the replacement in my study. So far, I prefer John MacArthur's comments and would recommend his study Bible over this one. That said, there are features to this I think I will enjoy. My John MacArthur Bible, also NKJV, about 10 years old, is showing its age.
