Just reviewed for a few minuts

I am so excited to begin to study this bible. I need to spend more time to identify all the avenues of navigation but common sense has helped me identify some of the quick paths to my searches. I believe my commitment to spend more time in God's word will be so much more rewarding using this efficient tool.

I'm no Christian, but this was a great introduction to the Bible for me. The illustrations, explanations, and NIV translation in general made this easily understandable. I feel that I can understand more about the beliefs of Christians in general. It's a really beautiful book with eye-catching illustrations and goes very much into depth over some of the translations.

I thought the entire bible was great. I loved using the color in it, and the pictures were great.
The bible notes were having you jump sll over the bible, but all the other ones do to. The only negative I found in the book was the size. I was thinking the large print would help me because my eyes are getting bad. It is way too big to carry to church. However when you study it at home it makes that point wonderful
I would buy it again but probably the smaller verison.

I really enjoyed reading the bible in every day language. It was very easy to read and visualize what was happening. The only thing I felt that some of the comments about the scriptures were weak and often times no comment at all.

Returning this for the HCSB Study Bible. Almost every single note in the book makes your refer to a different note which makes you refer to another 2-3 notes. Spend more time flipping pages then learning. Not so with HSCB Study Bible.

How can you not give the BIBLE 5 stars? It's on my list because it's on my kindle. I don't profess to be a theologian.
