Bought this as a graduation gift for my niece. I may eventually buy one for myself. Love all the information at your fingertips. I usually read the Bible every day on a one-year plan. I do this over a website. It still is great to have something in hand to underline and go back to read.
Better than expected. I am very pleaseed. I got the thumb indexed hardcover. The Bible fits the cover I ordered for it, like a glove. Just the right amount of space around it. I bought the extra large size red "ballistic" cover for it. Matches nicely too...though a burgundy would also go well. Bible is perfect...has lots of exposition and many references to look up as you study. Concordance and dictionary in back. Also has the words of Christ in red, book introductions, some areas of specific exegesis for critical areas/studies, a subject index, reading plan, maps in color and some in black and white that are inserted within the text. I really love the thumb indexed version...I try to get it in all my Bibles. It's helpful and attractive too. I definitely recommend this Bible to everyone. And it's at a price most people can easily afford. Thanks CBD.
This is an excellent study bible. Several maps and diagrams help to easily locate places discussed in the text. I am finding this translation very readable and understandable. I like the format of the "helps" in each chapter as well as the detailed introductions to each chapter.
We love this study Bible. It is easy to read, it is easy to follow and love the way it is set up for reference verses. We have one for my husband, myself and my in-laws. Would most definitely recommend for beginner readers.
