I got this Bible for my adult son who is working on his Master's Degree in Teaching, and one of his subjects made reference to an Old Testament chapter in the Bible. He (and I) love the easy to read and understand version as well as the commentaries that touch on subjects "Every Man" can relate to....from a man's perspective. And because of that, it keeps him in the WORD...Hallelujah!
This Bible is awesome. I bought this one for my husband as a replacement. He had the first version that came out, but it got old and broke on him (normal wear & tear from years of using it). He felt lost without it even though he has a collection of other Bibles. This is his favorite. So I went ahead and bought him this one as a replacement. He's happy again. Couldn't live without it.
My boyfriend is recently converted and I decided to get him this bible. It is a study bible with explanations but generalize, not nitty gritty like an actual study bible. Still it gets to the point because in the beginning, the Word itself should do everything.
