Great reference bible. My NEW keeper for daily bible study. Jan 11, 2006
This bible is perfect for those who actually utilize center-column references. It comes with over 60,000 center column references. I'm sure the 60,000 includes the scripture references, translation and explanatory notes. I appreciate the translation and explanatory notes since it's only 1 to 5 word explanation/translation. It just helps add clarity to the passage.
The book introductions are brief and basic. It gives you just enough background information without a lot opinion or commentary...this is great.
It has a How to Use this Reference Bible section in the front. This is helpful for those who may be a beginner or someone who has never used a center-column reference system before. Also, it only has 1 page presentation page which is very basic.
One feature that is really nice (for me at least) is the Capital and Small Capital Letter text. For example, in the New Testament, if an author quotes scripture from the Old Testament, the quoted scripture/text stands out with Capital and Small capital letters.
I almost forgot one of the main reasons I bought this bible was the In Text/Subject Headings. Most bibles have the top page headings which help but typical there are other stories/subjects on the same page. These In Text/Subject Headings are very helpful for beginners such as my 11 yr old son. We both have this bible. He is pretty familiar with stories but not quite sure where to find a story in a specific book. At least with the In Text/Subject Headings, he can flip thru the book and see the title/heading for a specific group of scriptures. Also, the In Text/Subject Headings will list the parallel/associated scripture in another book. The parallel scriptures are throughout the Bible but are very common in the Gospels. For example, Matthew 22:15 has a heading "Conflict with Pharisees and Herodians". The parallel scriptures listed below this heading are Mark 12:13-17 & Luke 20:20-26. This is a great feature where you do need Harmony of the Gospels in the back of the bible.
The 68 page concordance is pretty decent. I'm not disappointed considering you have to give or take when it comes to concordances. Depending on the size of your bible or if it's an actual study bible will kind of dictate what to expect from the concordance. The full color maps are really nice.
For the price of this bible (depending on where you get it from), you can't beat it. I am so happy to finally have a large volume of cross-references, subject headings (big plus for me)and the capital letter quotes. Plus, the size is really nice since I typically carry compact reference bibles in my purse. This bible measures 8 3/4 x 5 5/8 x 1 1/4. Therefore, you need to look for a cover that is possibly labeled small or medium.
