To my knowledge, there is no equal to this Bible. I have searched for a Bible, as close to the original text as possible for a very long time. This Bible reads easy, stays close to what the original text meant and the commentaries is not based on personal opinion or preference, it has space for your own interpretation and your revelation through the Holy Spirit. This is a Bible every believer desiring to experience God through Scripture, should have!
Came on time, actually a day early. Meets quality expectations but need to get an organizer cover for it. :) Like that it was not the red letter edition as I have trouble focusing/reading it. Bought the hard back for myself and a soft cover for a friend ... she is enjoying it immensely.
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!
