i got this study bible for a friend that is having trouble picking up smaller print. Nice large type reduces eye strain, has indexes that help find your place and a real quality leather cover. The study portions are nice and help frame the time period of writing, who was written to, key focus points. i have had one for over a decade and still enjoy previewing the overview before starting in.
Nothing takes the place of expositional teaching going chapter by chapter, verse by verse under a good teacher at church(and home group study). Many friends like Searchlight.org for personal study besides myself.
Yes, do have it personalized too. As an usher, we find so many unlabeled bibles left behind! No doubts in lost N found!
I learned from my pastor about how the author of this study bible has a backwards opinion about some of the teachings in the bible. His biggest is his view on revalations. I read it and agreed with my pastor. So no I am not happy with this bible that is why I later purchased a Nelson bible.
Purchased the large print as a gift, i already have my own Scofield in the regular print, and have gifted the regular print to each of my three grandchildren. i enjoy the in depth study guides for deeper gleaning of the Word! appreciate the great prices and service of CBD to allow me to give great gifts of Gods Word to friends and family.
