This Bible is absolutely my favorite Bible. What I love about it is, not only it is easy to read but, located at the bottom of the page, there is a clearer explanation of the passages. It might be to help understand the history of that particular region, allowing me to understand why a certain custom was in place. It also clarifies how we can apply the reading to today's circumstances. Best of all, it constantly reminds me how God is a loving god, a forgiving god and is always with me at all times because I am His child. I would recommend this Bible to anyone of any age but mostly for someone just starting out on their Christian walk.
