Makes bible study exciting and alive Jul 26, 2007
If you've read and listened to Hank Hanegraaff very much, you know that one thing he does so well is to get the right tools to those who desire to study God's word, not just spoon feed all the answers. This bible does just that. Hank introduces each book in a way that gives the right footing to study it for yourself. To me, Hank's introductions through the "LEGACY" acronym, and his "LIGHTS" bible study principles make the scripture come alive. I love the idea and implementation of this "study bible". Great wide margins, two, no just one on the outer column. Print size is just right. Other spaces for notes. Give this one a chance. Thanks Hank.
A useful resource, with a few caveats Jun 13, 2007
The Legacy Bible definitely fills a gap in the marketplace. It's the best wide margin Bible you will find for under $100. I appreciate the thought that went into the positioning of the text on the page, so the space is much more usable for making notes. (You don't have to try to write down the center gutter, on on the bottom edge of the page while your hand hangs off the bottom.) Also, this Bible already includes sections on Hank's acronyms for witnessing/apologetics (FACE, FEAT, MAPS, DOCTRINE, etc.), which I always used to copy into my Bibles; now I don't have to. The size of the font is also very user-friendly, which I consider a plus. I have excellent vision, but still like my font to be at least a size ten.
Now, to the minuses:
The NKJV is a very good translation. But it's your only choice if you want a Legacy Bible. I would love to have this Bible in an ESV. Not enough choices are available in the ESV yet, and it is awesome. It's as smooth as the NIV, but more literal/word-for-word. Since the NKJV is the publisher's proprietary translation, I suppose it was the most cost-effective to use.
A better quality leather cover would be great. There's nothing wrong with this cover, it's just bonded leather, which I wouldn't choose if genuine was available.
Some blank note pages in the back would have been very helpful.
This isn't really a study bible in the traditional sense. There are no in-text notes. The material in the front and back of the book is very, very good, but that makes this essentially a self-guided study bible, or an elaborate wide-margin bible. The name should be Legacy Bible, not Legacy Study Bible.
With all that said, this a great resource. I bought two copies, one for me and one for my wife, and we are reading through the Bible together using the Legacy reading plan.
Way to go, Hank!
excellent resource May 31, 2007
This is a great resource for those who want to leave their own personal legacy on the pages of this Bible by writing notes on the margins. This is where this study Bible differs from the traditional annotated kinds. Also includes three significant creeds and pages to record personal and family remembrances. And finally, Hank's brilliant acronym system will help you to learn how to read the Bilble methodically--for all it's worth!
Surprised by weakness May 29, 2007
It is just another King James Bible that might have a few more notes that a Gideon Bible.
A legacy for your child May 27, 2007
I once read an article where a Grandmother bought each grandchild a Bible when they were born. As she read through the Bible, she wrote in the margin next to various passages how she had prayed that passage for her grandchild. Now that grandchild has a treasured keepsake to remind them forever of one who prayed for them. It seems this Bible with its large margins would be perfect for just that project.
