This Bible has so much packed inside to make reading and studying the Bible a pleasure. The cover is gorgeous, with it's blue marble effect, as well. I love how it lays flat and feels sturdy in my hand. The dust cover is beautiful but the Bible without it is beautiful as well.

The text is quite easy to read, although the study notes are a bit smaller. However, I didn't have any trouble reading the study notes despite them being a smaller. One thing I like about the study notes is that they are extensive and really explain the Scriptures in a detailed way.

I also love the explanation in the front of the Bible on how to use the study notes, footnotes and other extras inside this Bible. There's also a section to record family information, maps, and a concordance.

This Bible is wonderful and a great resource for your time in the Word. With all it's wonderful study notes, you'll get a greater understanding of God's Word and what could be better than that?

I highly recommend this Bible and give it 5 stars.
