Jamie MGender: Male3 Stars Out Of 5Weak on Study NotesAugust 12, 2020Jamie MGender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 2Meets Expectations: 2The CSB Baker Illustrated Study Bible has a lot going for it: superior craftsmanship, noteworthy contributors and the highly readable, highly reliable CSB translation. And the fact that it's incredibly cheap to buy right now. However, upon closer examination I can only rate it 3 out of 5 stars due to the general vagueness of the study notes and articles, and the fact that it heavily promotes replacement theology. If you don't know what replacement theology is, read "Has the Church Replaced Israel? A Theological Evaluation" by Michael Vlach, available here at Christianbook. In my opinion, a much better option would be the original CSB Study Bible by Holman Bible Publishers.
biblejunkie3 Stars Out Of 5Could be the best on the market but.....July 6, 2020biblejunkieQuality: 5Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2First, this bible is a beast! Its very thick and very heavy. My husband joked he could do his arm lifts with it. This will not be one you want to take to church.
There is so much to like about it though. Beautiful colors, the CSB translation (which is quickly becoming my favorite and most used translation), and very well made. It should last for years even with heavy usage. The format is fantastic and I wish more publishers would take note. Single column with cross references on the gutter side of the text and wide margines on the outside of the text for adding your own notes. The font is very easy to read, the paper is very good and very very little ghosting. Its is almost the perfect study bible...Almost....
The study notes are absolutely terrible. I have been using it for several weeks now and every study note is nothing more than a synopsis of the biblical text that was just read. There is no cultural or history context, no theology possiblities, no breakdown, not even comparisions to other verses. They really are honestly not even worth reading. The bible does have some good maps, diagrams, articles, and explainations of cities scattered throughout. But I would not recommend this to anyone hoping to learn something. Its disappointing. So I have quit looking at the notes and use it more as just a reference and reading bible. When I need find a better understanding of something, I pull out another study bible. Thankfully I got it on sale. If I had paid full price for it, I would have returned it. Yes, its that bad.
Shane5 Stars Out Of 5Great study BibleMarch 2, 2020ShaneQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This Bible has a vast expanse of knowledge. Even if you dont use the CSB translation its worth buying just for the study notes. Well worth the money
