Very useful for me to study the bible! I write notes on the generous margins, and the maps and illustrations help me to visualize better too.
Though like many reviewers have mentioned that the holes of the papers tear easily, so I bought reinforcement rings stickers and stick on 2 of the holes on each sheet as I read along. Which thankfully I did as they almost tore when I first flipped the pages (relatively gently).
Nevertheless, that's a small issue and I'm very very satisfied with this purchase!
The book was much larger than expected. It takes up a lot of room. The text is easy reading but verse explanation is not as in dept or detailed as most study bibles. It's too big to carry anywhere. It's strictly for home study.
This bible is good for everyone to use. It is a great study bible when you are in a bible study class. The whole family can read this bible together. The maps are wonderfiul in seeing whatwas going on in ancient times.
I was looking for a large easy to read study Bible and that is exactly what I got. This is not a bible that you would bring to church with you but for some serious study at home is perfect. It has far more study notes than any of my other study bibles and it seems that the notes go deeper and farther along than what I have ever had before. The binder is large and roomy but my only complaint would be that they should have used "D" rings and made them just a little bit bigger. If you add personal notes you will run out of room very quickly.
