I am actually reading my bible more and more after I made this purchase. I love the additional notes. The size is perfect, not too big and not too small. My only complain is the sheets are slightly on the thin side.
I actually love everything about this bible except for two things. The first is that the print shows through quite a bit from the other side of the page. I found this very distracting at first, but I'm getting used to it. I'm also disappointed because Christ's words are not in red.
I bought this bible to replace a non-study NKJV version that is actually smaller & thinner than this one. The cover was wearing out on my old one so I thought I would "upgrade" to a study version because I wanted the insights it would bring to my time in the Word. My old bible's print is actually darker & the words still don't show through the pages as much as the new one.
I also like for Christ's words to be in red so I can home in on them when I'm just thumbing through during a time of need. I never really thought to make sure it said "Words of Christ in red" because I don't think I've seen a bible without that.
When the time comes for a new bible, I will definitly go to a store so I can see what I'm getting beforehand.
