My girlfriend got me this Bible as a gift and I have to say that it is a perfect birthday present. It is solid and well made and though I don't always agree with Dr. Morris 100% of the time I love his thoughts and teachings on Scripture.
Very informative and well thought out. Connecting scriptures with scriptures, and explaining certain archaic old English words or phrases. A lot of great foot notes, I disagree on some, but overall, AMAZING! :)
I had the humbling honor to meet with The Genesis Flood co-author John C. Whitcomb a few weeks ago. He is one of my top five Bible expositor / Creationist / Biblical Inerrancy heroes in the vein of Hebrews 11.
I didn't even know Dr. Morris was the author of the annotation in the Defender's Bible.....for many years I've referred only to the "great notes in my KJV Bible"!!!!!!
If I could give this bible 10 stars, I would. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this study bible!!! The text is very readable, even for old, over-worked eyes. The notes are just as easy to read as the main bible text and that makes this bible far superior to most that I own. The paper is wonderful; it is anti-glare and as thick as possible for such a big study bible. The leather is very nice and almost has a padded feel to it. I am really digging into this one and have already learned a lot from it. Its hard to put this one down. Of course, I don't agree with every single commentary note in it, but the vast majority are on-point. I wish it had index tabs but I found some bible tabs that really look nice in it and match the presentation pages which are a very pale blueish-silver color (CBD Stock #: 770146X). This bible has a great deal of helpful information and has been well-structured and made really well for the price-point. It does have a thick spine, so I purchased a nice leather cover which fits perfectly (CBD Stock #: 071121X). I am planning to invest in one or two more of these bibles just in case they go out of print bc I love this one so much. This bible would make an excellent gift and I believe it would be helpful to new or old believers alike!
