I always teach young Christians to avoid commentaries, til they have read a passage 4 or 5 times, and asked Our Lord to give them understanding. This Study Bible is a great next step, when they have learned to seek (and find) the illumination offered by God the Holy Spirit. Pr 3.5-6
We bought several of these bibles as gifts for our newly ordained elders. They are well constructed, large font, and have good reference materials. We would recommend them to anyone that wants a quality affordable bible for self use or a gift.
Leather cover bends easily and goes right back to the original flat state! Nice easy-to-read font. I like that you can open the bible and place it on a flat surface without having the pages move! The tabs are very helpful too! You can surely get to the books of the bible quite fast! I love the information that is provided before each book of the bible e.g., Author of the book, and a complete outline of the book! Just a fabulously made bible!
