I personally like NASB the best. I feel that it does the best job at sticking with the original Greek/Hebrew while still making it readable in "everyday" English. I also prefer Red Letter Bibles. Finally, I like Study Bibles (and Ryrie has always done a great job at these) for when you want to do an in-depth study of the Bible, because they give you background information and historical/cultural information to help explain some of the passages. Obviously I am not going to review the Bible itself ...more

About the Binding & Cover
This edition is made from Premium Bonded Leather, with a Smythe sewn binding. The cover has detailed grain, rich color, and a nice leathery feel. Bonded leather is made from tiny bits of leather reformed together with latex binders to create one sold sheet of leather. Depending on the quality bonded leather is composed of 80% to 100% leather fibers. Bonded leather doesn't last as long as Genuine Leather, but does certainly out lasts other types of covers.

This isn't the actual Bible I use. I like the Zondervan NAS Study Bible with the NIV notes. I like to mark-up my Bibles, so there are lots of underlining/highlighting, notes in the margins, and the endpages are covered with quotes from different speakers or pastors. The Bible is "living and active and sharper than a two-edged sword" so I will forever be reading and rereading it.
This version of the collection of books known as the "Bible" is a watered down version of the KJV. Here, Dr. Ryrie, seems to try to offer a version that is updated and revised to suit more modern tastes. It is a "study" bible for one thing because it offers references to other passages throughout, which is nice. It is also a red-letter edition, meaning that anything that Jesus "said", is pointed out by using a red font. I studied this bible extensively years ago. It gets a lower rating from me t ...more

This was my first study bible back in the day when I thought the NASB would give me the most literal (i.e. dispensational) translation possible. Except for some of the commentary, it wasn't too bad. It was stolen from me in Hawaii, along with some other books in my bag.
A wise lady I know once suggested reading it through like a story. In the front of her Bible she wrote, "This is a true story." I have since done the same. It keeps things in perspective.
This is the one I use in church and for study purposes. Read cover to cover in 2002.
The New American Standard is an excellent translation for any serious student of the Scriptures. I like Ryrie's study notes, in this version, though I do not agree with every position he takes. His notes are concise and helpful, for the most part.
Matt Downs
The Ryrie brand of study Bible I have found to be the most informative, cleanly denoted, with well-placed and detailed subtexts. I've had a couple of Bibles out of this line and have always been impressed.
Not much commentary compared to ESV Study Bible or MacArthur Study Bible. I bought it hoping to get a classic dispensationalist commentary on the Bible. Below my expectations.
This book is a good read if you want to have a relationship with Jesus and spend eternity with Him in Heaven.
My favorite translation by one of my favorite commentators/theologians. Love Ryrie. Love God. Love His Word.

Come on, man, it's the Bible. There isn't enough space provided to answer such questions.
I am currently reading straight through the Bible and I really enjoy this study edition.
Gotta' go 5 stars. (It would be bad Karma not to.)
The BEST BOOK in the WORLD!!!! Words to live by!
The best translation for the New Testament!!
