I really love this bible as it is an excellent tool for indepth studying of God's Word. However, the genuine leather is of very poor quality for the price of the bible. Christianbook is an excellent site to buy from and this is certainly not their fault. It amazes me that the Kay Auther organization put out such a poor quality of leather. It's really bad. Don't spend your money on the genuine leather. Extremely thin and doesn't even lay down right when laying the bible down. I have lots of leather bibles, this leather is terrible. If I hadn't needed it for a Bible Study class I would have returned it but I needed it right away so have already written in it. Would love to have given it 5 stars but just couldn't do it.

Finally! I've wanted a NASB Inductive Study Bible for years, and now I have one! When I got ready to buy, I held out several months for the updated NASB edition, and I am NOT disappointed! I'm AMAZED at the extensive features of this Bible, and have no doubt that I will be so excited when I dive into my studies that I'll wonder why I didn't get this Bible years ago! I prefer the hardcover style, like a 'textbook,' which allows me to freely mark and make notes. I purchased a set of the Rainbow Index Tabbies and put them on, and I'm READY to begin serious study in January! Thank you, CBD, for making this possible!

If you are serious about studying the Bible, you will appreciate all the perks of this particular version. I bought it to use with the Kay Author Children's "How to Study the Bible DVD", but it will be rather bulky for them, I think, and heavy. No problem for adults, but I am not sure about the children.

I had already started a reading plan and simply switched to using this Bible when I received it. I am seeing God's work all through First and Second Kings. I had read these before, though not thoroughly, and I see now how God loves his people through this time of turmoil. There are many maps and charts that help me visualize what is going on. Every chapter has an At-A-Glance chart for me to fill in my own summary for each chapter, and see how the various chapters group together. I use a magnifier to read the cross references more easily, but the main text is clear, so don't let the "ten-point" designation stop you.
I like the instructions for study being customized for each book, and that I can select my own squiggles and marks. I do make the suggested quick reference index card for each book so I can easily look through marks for all books later on.
I really like this method, especially as presented in this Bible. It is all in one book, no need for a separate study guide. You read it, you mark it, you see God for yourself. And sometimes I hear the soft whisper..."Now where else did you see that?"
There is plenty of room in the margins for my notes. I have lots of yellow triangles and pink text--my code for insight about God. The chart about the various kings is already pre-filled with calendar date ranges and the names of the kings, this makes it easier to see where I am going. They leave it to you to track who was a King of Israel and who was a King of Judah. Remember, you have colors! :-)
I am am able to write with a light hand and I'm having excellent results with the "005" Micron pens, which make a .20 mm line. This does not even approach "soaking through" the page. I am using "05" (.45 mm) for the yellow pen, so I can see it easily. I'm also using the dry hi-liters and having good results with them. (Though they were soft on delivery, they did not melt in the heat here in the desert! I just let them cool off overnight before starting to use them.) An old box from my bank-checks (spray painted pink) works well to hold the pens and hi-liters, even with some index cards in there too. I use a couple of small sticky-notes to mark the instructions and the At-a-Glance chart for the current book, then move them to the next book when I am ready for that.
