This is by far better than any of my study Bibles with it's layman's language it allows quick easy study of any subject or simple cover to cover reading. It's a little expensive but a very good study too if you're looking for everyday language you can understand with pictures, thought provoking questions, marginal notes and highlighted feature add on to help your understand the message behind the scripture. A some great revision ideas would be. Print could be much larger for easy reading and if the words of Christ was written in red print it would be helpful. Ordinances of the church, funeral, wedding, call to worship outlined scriptures highlighted on a page would be a good preacher tool or even outlined principles..Overall a good guide but very expensive

It's huge, so when you get it don't be surprised if it is a mini-textbook. I love it. It has pictures and questions at the end/middle of ever book in the bible. I got mines engraved so it's personal to me. Overall I think the value should be better for the book since it is a very handy bible.. but I had the money and needed a new bible that wouldn't die in a couple of years. Some of the images are so-so, but you should know God and how he works to know that the images don't have to count.

Great for studying. Print should be much larger for easy reading on the eyes and it would have been better if the words of Christ would have been written in red.Print could have been darker to show better on the pages.

This Bible makes it so easy to learn about the culture and history, as well as, having the easy to follow text notes. The cross references are very well done. The American Bible Society obviously put some thought into who "the learner" could be. An excellant Bible whether this is your first Bible or, one of many. It is quickly becoming one of my favorite.

This is by far the best study bible I've purchased! Outstanding for Sunday school teachers, small groups,& youth groups. Discussion questions at the end of each book are perfect for any group or individual study. Beautifully colored pictures throughout the entire bible. Actual photos of archeological discoveries throughout. The full colored maps are the best I've seen. So much information at your fingertips! The Scriptures are perfect size for preaching,teaching and reading. Powerful Bible indeed!The only flaw- no concordance and all black letter, otherwise, outstanding in everyway. History sections are fabulous. i.e. "how we got our bible".The footnotes and references are on the side panels and Book titles,chapter info are at the bottom of the page- nice change. Again- I love the color all throughout. I will use this bible for as long as I'm alive. If you are teaching, a must have! Caution, 2.25 inches thick. It's big. But I don't mind it. Two thumbs up!
