Reviews - What do customers think about The Legacy Study Bible?
Not paying attention Dec 9, 2009
Negative reviews all seem to revolve around the same lack of attention. The purpose of the Bible is to teach people how to do basic hermeneutics. It teaches people how to study the Bible for themselves instead of simply giving them a commentary, which Hank accurately proclaims as a far cry from "study". If you desire to become a student of the Bible, this is a great tool. If you desire to be spoon fed notes while never learning how to plumb it's depths, don't. Those negative reviews have missed the point by not paying attention. It's not the gospel, but is a great tool. Thus 4 out of 5.
Great Study Bible Jan 29, 2009
This bible is not exactly what I thought it was when I purchased it, but it is a great study bible. Its in the New King James Version, and has lots of space to write notes in the margins, and down the center of the pages. It has places in the front of the bible to write your family tree, births, baptisms, testimonies, etc. I was thinking there were going to be more insites from Hank Hanegraaff (aka The Bible Answer Man), because I enjoy his radio show, and learn a lot from it. I took it to church with me, though, and could write sermon notes right there in the pages of the bible we were reading from, which was kind of cool.
Legacy Study Bible Dec 28, 2008
If you really want to study the Bible then this is the place to start. Hank provides easy to read instructions on how to think about and study the Bible as well as lots of space to write notes and truly make the Word of God your own.
Daniel D. Cash Nov 8, 2008
This bible is not intended for us(the reader) to be taught by man, but to guide us to hear the Holy Spirit for ourselves. This way we can pass on a personal LEGACY for our families. I applaud Hank for developing this and urging others to hear the Lord for themselves. If Hank wanted to create a study bible with his own extensive thoughts and interpreations he could have done that. I have seen study bibles with annotations longer than the actual bible itself!!! The Spritit will/can guide us into all truth(I John 2)!
A real bargain! for $5 ! Aug 31, 2008
I'll give it to you straight: I found this edition of the NKJV in the bargain bin of a Christian store named Mardel's. It was marked down from the jacket price of $39.99 to $5. I think this is about right for this hardbound bible. I like the NKJV text, and that probably says a lot to some who know I am a Roman Catholic. This particular bible, however, has some problems that made it a hard sale even to the Evangelicals who are the majority of customers at Mardel's. The words of Christ are in red. In some places, the red color is a nice, deep dye & easy to read; in others, the red looks faded, and is harder to read. Previous reviewers have already listed why this is no "study bible," and I agree with most of their assessments. I will not, therefore, belabor that point.
I would like to make some comments on why I cannot recommend this bible to others, even at $5 a pop. On page xv of the preface of this edition, Mr. Hanegraaf makes quite of few statements vilifying Catholics. Not only is Hank less than charitable here, he is completely off his rocker. It is a pity he merely parrots what other anti-Catholics have said, but did not take the time to do his homework regarding the history of the English bible.
He writes, "Wycliffe's translations from the 1380's remained the only English Bible until the invention of moveable type in the 16th Century."
This one sentence bothered me so much that I stayed up a little later than I usually do and reread Chapter XI, "Vernacular Scriptures before Wycliff", from the wonderful little book, "Where We Got The Bible", by Henry G. Graham, recently republished by CATHOLIC ANSWERS. This chapter is less than 9 pages long and effectively refutes Hanegraaf's assertion. Please indulge me, and allow me to quote a small part of this chapter:
Here are the Vernacular Versions of the Bible in English before Wycliffe:
--Caedmon of Whitby, 7th Century --Venerable Bede, 8th Century --Eadhelm, Bishop of Sherborne, 8th Century --Guthlac, 8th Century --Egbert, Bishop of Holy Island, 8th Century --Alfred the Great --Aelfric, Archbishop of Canterbury --The Book of Durham --Rushworth gloss (all of the above are in Saxon)
--paraphrase of Orm (1150 AD) --Salus Anima (1250 AD) --William Shorham --Richard Rolle (died 1349) (the above are in Middle English)
Even John Foxe, the author of the notoriously anti-Catholic, "Book of Martyrs," admits, "If histories be well examined, we shall find, both before the Conquest (1066) and after, as well before John Wycliff was born (1320) as since, (he died 1384) the whole body of Scripture by sundry men translated into our country tongue."
I enthusiastically encourage those who read this criticism to read Bishop Graham's little book. It is in print, easy to read & accessible to laymen such as myself. I don't claim to be a scholar. I don't think Hank is, either. But, he does need to do some more homework!
