This is my first time using one of Thomas Nelson's "Open Bibles", and although not my ideal version of a study Bible(I haven't found the ideal yet),it has elements that I would want.

This has been my primary bible for 20 years. I love the new King James Version. It's readable but still reads like "the bible".

I also love my New Living Translation and other versions but this is my personal bible of choice.

My favorite bible in my favorite translation. I can find a specific passage in this bible easier than any other bible I own. There are additional features in this study bible that are indispensable I serious bible study. A great resource to own and use.
