I have begun to study the bible and have been frustrated in my endeavors. I started with the Amplified Bible, but wanted more. i am new to bible study and was unaware of much. My first study bible was the HCSB and Apologetics which was good, but i felt it was lacking. I did a review search of the translations and found the NASB, which led me to the MacArthur Study Bible. I bought large print because the notes in others are so incredibly small! This bible is so beautiful in Bonded Leather! I wish they would make a Parallel Bible with Amplified/ NASB and Macarthur Study Bible Commentary. I do not regret my purchase at all and pray that everyone changes to the NASB.
I agree with the majority of the reviews given. However, I would like to let people know things that may be a showstopper for them.
First, of course is the positive input. I love the study bible content. it is probably the most thorough bible I've had so far (and I've had and still have a LOT of them).
It is NOT a red or green letter edition. For the price I paid I would like to see red or green letters. I find myself looking at my other bibles to discern where the words of Christ are. The pages fold quite easily as they are so toilet paper thin.
Regardless I'm a happy camper. I can get past the two items I consider to be deficits, particularly because of the content. I"ll just have to get used to the two deficits.
Beautiful, large print NAS study bible, full of fantastic notes, and helps from a wonderful man of GOD, John MacAurthur. The bible has a beautiful black bonded leather cover, it is thumb indexed to help in finding chapters,and verses.The large print is great for ease of reading. Overall it is a wonderful copy of GODS WORD.
I had it imprinted with "BY HIS BLOOD, I AM SAVED" Instead of my name' just to always remind me of HIS love for me. The imprinting is very nice. I am sure you would enjoy a copy of this Bible.
Love this Bible! Glad I ordered the large print, but I still need my glasses. After recieving this bible, I wanted a case for it and ONLY wanted a leather one. If you are looking for a case I would highly reccommend The Wordkeeper, XL from Christianbook Distributors.
I purchased the large print, bonded, thumb-indexed Study Bible. It was recommended by some clergy and a Messianic Rabbi to be the best and closest to Hebrew and Greek translations. With all the information, study aids, historical information and more, it is very understandable and enjoyable to read. The large print and smooth nonglare paper is easy on the eyes. I chose the thumb-index version and I am glad that I did! It is a large book and this makes it easy to cross reference. All in all this has made my studying a pleasure. I look forward to learning. The customer service was above and beyond. Unfortunately, I forgot the man's name who helped me. He was informative, polite and personable. Thank you for taking the time to help me with my decision! I look forward to making more purchases in the future.
