An impressive product, high quality content and presentation, great for quiet reading by myself, for discussion groups (to quickly look up references, maps or diagrams) and for study/sermon preparation.
It is large and heavy, so not really a travel book, but I have a Bible on my phone for that.
Have wanted this Bible for quite some time, finally was able to get one,and I am Very impressed the Study Notes are great, the references are very good too.Overall this is just as Described a whole library at your fingertips.

I am always impressed with the accuracy that Christianbook describes the product, and it's exactly as described! Although I do believe I've seen a few ships anchors that probably weigh less, if you have limited funding for bible reference materials, this is an all in one library with internet access that comes with the purchase! Got this for a sale price and really believe it's the best bible value I've found.
I'm very happy with the purchase of this new study bible. It's a wonderful resource, filled with great information, maps, and it's readability is just what I wanted. Would highly recommend this to anyone interested in a deeper study of scripture.
