This study Bible has readable, accessible commentary. Printing the Biblical text in single column rather than the typical double column helps readability. The only other study Bible I can think of that does likewise is Oxford University Press's "The Jewish Study Bible," which has somewhat larger type and seemingly higher quality printing.
In the Gospels and Paul's letters, the commentary has been kept in check, so that the Biblical text usually takes up at least a bit more space than the comments. The commentary is admirably free of light on scholarly technical terms. Apart, perhaps, from very conservative Protestants, it's a usable, even chatty, Bible for regular use.
I'd like to see a slightly better printed version. Maybe large print?
I have both a large print hard bound, and now this imitation leather copy of the CEB study Bible. They are both very well made, easy to read and understand copies of GODS' Word. I have enjoyed the way they use todays language, making scripture easier to understand.
I do recommend having one of these in your Bible library.
May God bless you with understanding in your study of His Wonderful WORD.
I just received this Bible today, and am impressed with the clear print, bright paper, easy to understand text, and notes. This Bible would be a good addition to your library. It is very large and heavy, but wth all the notes, and helps, that is to be expected. The print is large, and easy on the eyes.
May our wonderful LORD bless you with understanding in your study of His Word.
I really enjoy this translation and the study notes but the print is still small to me. If this is large print I wonder how they define small print. I unfortunately can not recommend it to many of my friends who would need larger print to enjoy the full depth of this otherwise wonderful bible.
