This is an OUTSTANDING STUDY BIBLE, it sits right up there with the THOMPSON CHAIN REFERENCE BIBLE, and the 1917 Scofield reference Bible KJV. My 2 biggest problems with this Bible are the INCREASING THIN leather covers A.M.G is putting on this wonderful Bible. A Bible of this caliber deserves a NICE,THICK ,QUALITY LEATHER cover. additional - like so many Bibles printed nowadays , what they call ' RED LETTER' , is actually an dull, unappealling,HARD TO READ BROWN LETTERING. They need to print these Bible with a BRIGHT RED, LETTERING. Also, they need to print the rest of the text in HEAVY,BOLD PRINT, like they did with the 1984 edition Hebrew/Greek study Bible.
This is simply the most awsome bible I've ever seen and handled in my life. I love this genuine leather edition and the pricing on these is incredibly reasonable. I do not think I could afford to pay what it is really worth so thank you to AMG, CBD, and anyone else involvedin making this volume affordable/accessible. Be aware, however, this is no compact or "personal size" volume. It would be quite impossible to pack all the resources contained in this library-in-one-binding masterpiece in anything smaller than it's current size and still be legible. I'm somewhat at a loss for words, which is rare, though this volume is never at a loss for words nor resources for better understanding these words. Do consider, if you're up to it, acquiring it in the KJV ediion since many of the best commentaries use the KJV as the basic test and point of departure. For one thing, though there are errors and weaknesses, these are well known and once known you will not have to be dealiing with that process again, such as the issue with the NIV '84 now being replaced by the NIV 2011. the Bible is a large book however you take it. I for one do not like to be learning the weak or wrong readings, in my opinion, in a new edition of the bible every few years or even every couple decades. I could gush on and on about this magnificent work, but I want to get back to perusing it. Whehter you choose the NASB, the NIV '84, or the KJV, I'm sure you'll love it, even if it would only fit in the pocket of a Paul Bunyan.
