I love this Bible, I can't get enough of it. I love the verse by verse notes and the word studies. I've always read the King James Verson and the NIV version only, But I love the New Kings James Verson better because it's closer to the Kings James Verson, not taking away from the clarity of God's Word. There's also a definition for each chapter-verse you read. This Bible has helped me tremendously with its concise clarity. I can never go back to the NIV. A matter of fact, its better than the NIV. You will be entrigued by the information this Bible gives before you even go into your study. There is so much background information about whatever Book you read before you get into your reading and studys. There are important times and dates and Theology info. I love this Bible and didn't espect to receive so much, especially with the price of this Bible. This is truly the Bible for Teachers, pastors, etc.
The scripture is of a good size and is easy to read but the verse numbers are too small and at 5:00am are almost invisible. Yes there are over 15,000 verse-by-verse study notes and so far have been very helpful and informative, but the print is also small it is hard to read. I would recommend this bible to others just beware that the print size of the study notes and the verse numbers are very small.
Before I bought this bible I looked at the sample (pdf File) on line and it looked good.
I have purchased several of these bible to give to persons who could not otherwise afford a study bible. I also use this one myself and find it to be a valuable and easily understood souce of information.
I received this gorgeous hardback study Bible from Thomas Nelson last week. I have been making my way through the pages. This Bible also comes in leather bound form if that is what you like better. For me, I like the hardback. The pages are beautiful. It is written in paragraph form which makes it an easy format to read. I often find myself googling information needed for a study, but with this Bible there is no need. There are explanations, definitions and a meaty concordance. This Study Bible is filled with great tools to help you in your reading. Whether you want to read it devotional style or chapter to chapter this Study Bible is a great choice. Maybe you are searching for information on a specific subject you will be sure to find it and more.
In the hardback you are able to take the cover off and it is bound in solid black. Whether you are looking for subject or reference tools this Study Bible is loaded to make your reading easier and of more comfort. You will find solid explanations for difficult verses you may not understand fully.
You can find Prophecies Of The Messiah which gives you the scripture in which the prophecy is found, the subject and the verses which it is fulfilled. There is a wide variety of charts and the maps are in full vibrant color which I love. I find that with a Study Bible loaded with such great tools for learning I want to dive in even more. When it's an easy format to read it helps you to feel comfortable as you soak yourself in His Word and move through the pages. A Bible is personal and one that should be helpful in your journey. This is surely a great choice.
If your searching for a Study Bible this is a great choice and would make for a perfect gift. Check it out at Thomas Nelson.
