This is a beautiful Bible! I love the rich, brown two toned color of this Bible and the lovely feel of the cover.  It's easy to understand why this Bible is the best selling Bible in the world.

Inside, there are wonderful study notes that explain so well the Scriptures. I also love all the little maps scattered throughout.  There are maps in the back, however, having the small maps throughout makes it so easy to see where things are taking place as you're reading. There are also wonderful colored charts on the people of the Bible and other interesting facts of the Bible. I love this because they catch your attention.

Another nice thing is the explanation at the beginning of each book of the Bible that gives you an overview of what you will be reading. This is extremely helpful as you start reading those particular Scriptures.

I think my favorite part of this Bible is in the back and it's called the "Christian Worker's Resource". This section shows you how you can become a Christian and also has a section of how to follow up with a new Christian. I found these really great resources and something not found in any other Bible I've read.

Here's more information on the Bible:

This is a wonderful Bible with so many great resources right at your fingertips. I really love this Bible and highly recommend it.  I give it 5 stars.
