i bought 2 of these bibles they are great. wonderful reference, nobody else's ideas just teaches you how scripture interprets scripture. it's just plain amazing, everything you need in a great study bible, especially book introductions which is a big plus! you wont be sorry to get this bible, great quality and size, fells strong in your hands, yet lies flat when you lay it down open to read.
I REALLY think that what some of the die-hard Thompson Chain Reference KJV fans(I used to be)would be a little surprised to know is that The Master Study Bible is a major force to be reckoned with!! If you can get over the fact that this Bible was printed in Korea, you are in for *gasp* a better reference Bible IMHO. The KJV is printed in a shade larger font, however there are no spaces between the start of a new chapter in a book, just a larger chapter number (except in Psalms). There are references and alternate translation helps in the center-column reference. The Bible is nicely Smythe sewn and lays flat. I happened to get the bonded leather which is very nice. I am one that uses a zipper case to transport my bibles in and only take them out while indoors. Thus, bonded leather is fine for me. Just as the Thompson, study helps are kept seperate from the text which is GREAT for memorization. This also allows you to see more chapters at once. There is an alphabetized index in the front and a very thorough encyclopedia in the rear of the Bible. I feel that this Bible is a better STUDY Bible than the Thompson because each index or encyclodedia entry has a brief explanation or definition AS WELL AS corresponding scripture. Some of the articles can be considered opinionated, however I see nothing a Christian would consider wrong. If you just totally disagree, it's nice that these articles are in the rear of the study Bible separate from the text and thus easily ignored, rather than at the bottom of the page like some of my other study Bibles (Ryrie, Scofield, ESV. I hope this helps. I have lots of Bibles and am pretty informed on the features. These days I take a hand size giant print around most of the time. If I'm teaching Sunday School or researching, The Master Study Bible has QUICKLY replaced my Thompson as the 1st Go-to!
If anyone out there is looking for a complete study Bible with very helpful resources within the pages and a very well made binding at a very inexpensive price,then I recommend the Master Study Bible bonded leather to anyone!!
