Recommends it for: Nobody
Recommended to N. Griffin-lloyd by: My mom
Total rubbish. It reads as though it were written by either someone with multiple personalities or by a committee. So many inconsistencies, not just spanning the volume, but I could find different versions of the same story just pages apart. While it's billed as a historical document, there are so many things in here that just don't have any evidence and are physically impossible. It's also marketed as a moral guide, but there are so many messed up things in here (genocide, anyone?) you'd be MUC ...more
I am currently making my way through the Bible for the first time in my life. Having always been a believer, I thought this is be a book that would only apply to those who are believers. However, as I have been emerging myself deeper into it's contents, I realized this is a book for anyone. Proverbs is a book that caters to those who are interested in philosophy. The Psalms are for those who take interest in music or poetry. The Psalms contains some of the most beautiful poetry I have every read ...more
Top seller in the world....always timely and relevant. Any version is fine but I love the beauty of the King's James Version or New King James version in old English. I love the NIV or New American Standard versions just as well. Want to know God or why Jesus is the Savior, read the Bible, especially Matthew, Mark, Luke and John to get to know who Jesus is when He had his 3 year ministry in Israel 2000 years ago. Just to let you know, He is still alive. He rose on the third day and is ever-prese ...more

Well, I've learned alot, and continue to learn. This is a book I will never learn all there is to learn from it. I believe it to be God's personal message and that it is unlike any other book. I find hope, healing, and comfort in its words. I also find direction and guidance as well. I am by no means a person who claims to know all there is to know about the bible. I do believe it's important to keep reading and studying God's word. I may not read it every single day, but am working toward that ...more
I read it when I was Christian and I loved it. Now I just don't feel like it anymore and it looks like a silly book to me... I don't deny its literary properties, but I don't like it anymore. It'c childish and medieval.

PS. I read it thrice
This is, of course, THE book in my life. I don't read it as I should, but I ALWAYS learn from it. This is THE book to read. Every one says that life didn't come with an instruction manuel, but that's wrong! The BIBLE is our instruction manuel.
Life's handbook. Easy to read, hard to apply its principles at times, but then again, I'm only human and a sinner. Instant connection with the author gives Hope and encouragement. Pride always gets in the way.
Suzan Pecyna
I learned how to live my life from this book and am learning every day. Regardless of your faith, it's a great read and a priceless work of literature.

Best book to draw strength from. Try to read it as much as possible. One book you can never get tired of.
Jeff Moore
Useful all of the time. Side by side comparisons help a lot.
Karla Gautreaux
What I liked about it: The Song of Solomon is pretty good, what with it being a book of sex poems that somehow got into the mix. I also liked some of the bits about the crazy prophets and their bizarro tactics for getting people to believe that god was seriously mad again.

What I didn't like about it: It turns out that there are no annotated versions of the KJV published by mainstream publishing houses. There are annotated bibles put out by Oxford University Press, for example, but they use the N

I am currently reading for the fourth time in the past 10 years. Each time there is something new that I missed or needs further clarifaction. A great book to read whether you are a believer or not.
David Howell
A classic Study Bible! The Best
Wonderfully helpful. This study bible does an excellent job at digging into the meaning and context of verses in scripture. I have found it to be an excellent resource for serious readers of the Bible like myself. There are only a few occasions where I did not get my questions answered from this book. I have other study bibles, but this is always the one I keep coming back to.
Jan 20, 2009 Margaret rated it 5 of 5 stars  ·  review of another edition
Recommends it for: anyone - particularly women
Recommended to Margaret by: no one
God's Word is always incredible on so many levels. This particular version of the Bible speaks to women particularly and there are many side-notes, comments, etc. that are so helpful.

My favorite books - regardless of version - are John and Revelation. John was so dedicated to his Christ and his visions revealed in Revelation to give the rest of us hope are amazing!
I absolutely love the prose of the KJV bible and its accuracy. However, the Nelson Study Bible pitches dispensational baptist theology. I cannot recommend this bible based on the study notes.
I love this book! in my schedule I never have time to read the bible or spend time with God. with this book it takes only 1 minute of my day and I still learn something from God. I love it!
Caleb Warren
I highly recommend a Nelson's study Bible above all others I have ever read. It has been a tremendous help to me in my Bible study and understanding. BTW - Great read.
Wonderful book. Very highly recommended. Mine is actually just the Open Bible, not the NEW Open Bible. It is published by Nelson. It is my study Bible.
Joan Haughton
The Word of the Lord. So sweet, I have to start reading another version, right away. Bless the name of Jesus!
Dennis Berard
Differs from what Lewis Black's monologue relates.
Awesome. It's definitely the book of life.
