This Bible was on sale for a great price when I purchaced it but after receiving it I would have paid full price for it. It is far more beautiful than the pictures show!! I have always used Nelson study Bibles in the past and this one was just as great! The extras in it are very helpful and there are more in this edition than the one I bought 9 years ago. I did however notice that some of my favorite ones in my old Nelson's Women's Study Bible are not in this one. That is the only minus..I would like if they had a way of getting those as a extra leaflet or insert. The Bible on CD that came with the Bible is great also!
We purchased this for our daughter's 13 birthday. She loves it and says the "study"aspect of it has been most insightful. She has already read through the Bible in a year and now plans to do it again with this Bible, using the study notes to further enlighten her. The Bible is also very pretty, with tabs to help locate the Books faster. Well worth the purchase!
