Personally I love this bible, Study Bibles are filled with so much knowledge. The things I love about this one there are full colored maps, full color images along with  description of the author at the beginning of each book in the bible. With 2880 pages to this book it is HUGE, but very resourceful. Another great thing about this bible you can access  FREE Digital Copy as well! So if you do not want to carry this book all over with you and you have a kindle or reading device you can take your bible with you that way. I use to have a study bible and it got ruined so I am extremely happy to have the chance to review this fantastic book.  If you have never owned a Study bible this is how this one is laid out , first you will have a chronology line of the bible ( this helps me a lot) Then you will have an Introduction to Old Testament, then we move to the first five books of the bible the PENTATEUCH period in full color , then we start the bible  at the beginning of each book you have  name and purpose , about Author of that book along with info of genesis before getting into the book it's self. Now we enter Genesis with scripture at the top , bottom is for study and trust me it is very helpful! This is a very well laid out book and helpful. I would highly recommend this book!
