debchuckrJohnstown, PAAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5This is a very nice Bible.June 27, 2013debchuckrJohnstown, PAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a very nice hard cover Bible. The font is easy to read and not too small. It has many study guides and features which are nice. The notes on each verse by MacArthur are very interesting and informative. It's a little on the big side to carry back and forth to church but if you want a good study Bible, this is one to consider.
SONshine1 Stars Out Of 5Ratings are for the book manufacturing.June 14, 2013SONshineQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1It's cheaply made but the content is priceless. I feel like I have to be careful when I turn the pages. The thumb dividers are not worth the extra money and neither is the engraving. It was not centered properly for my name. That said. I would recommend the content to anyone who desires more "meat" in their spiritual diet. The notes and references are excellent.
DebbiArcade, NYAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Highly recommend this!!April 16, 2013DebbiArcade, NYAge: 55-65Gender: femaleI had purchased a Life Applications bible and found some things I didn't think were accurate in the notes, so bought this one for myself and I LOVE IT! John MacArthur has studied the Bible for over 40 years and is a true believer in the Lord Jesus Christ. His commentary/notes have been invaluable to me as I study, giving history, geography, customs, clarification with backup for that interpretation and references, explanation of language, syntax, dialects, etc. The most comprehensive and trusted commentary I have ever seen. Bought one for a friend who also loves it, and will be buying for my son and daughter in the near future. Great resource for a new believer who is serious about learning the scriptures, or a seasoned believer who wants to dig even deeper.
Jonathan BeckerBlue Springs, MOAge: 18-24Gender: Male3 Stars Out Of 5'Tis AlrightJanuary 27, 2013Jonathan BeckerBlue Springs, MOAge: 18-24Gender: MaleQuality: 3Value: 2Meets Expectations: 3This Bible has a number of positives and negatives.
-The ESV translation is both accurate and readable.
-The footnote format is extremely accessible.
-Most difficult passages have an in-depth explanatory footnote.
-Written from a commited evangelical point of view.
-MacArthur often does not give opposing views the time and consideration they deserve (Dear reader, John MacArthur is not inspired).
-Scholarly viewpoint are often misrepresented ("Scholars now know...").
-The hardback is (for me) less portable and more cumbersome than a leatherback.
With these things taken into consideration, though much good is to be said about this Bible, I cannot endorse it fully, and would recommend a study Bible with multiple commentators of various backgrounds to ensure balanced perspectives.

I didn't realize it would be that heavy. I have a problem with my thumb joint on my left hand so have trouble holding it in my hands and have to set it on something to enjoy it. Otherwise it is a great Bible!
