This is a very informative Study Bible. I've always been partial to the KJV and this one is filled with great info. I really like that it relates what was happening at the period of time reflected in the chapter you are reading. I love the maps too! I love learning more about the Bible and this one has exceeded my expectations. I would recommend it to any Bible student whether young or old. My only drawback would be that I wish the print were larger especially the footnotes. Hopefully in the future it will be available in a large print edition. The price wasn't bad either!
My children & I LOVE this Bible. Its very interesting to be reading and to be able to see the different things happening in the world at the same time. Its also interesting to learn what some of the things were in the Bible, how different they were then what we think they are. Very educational and fun to learn.
I bought the 2005 ed. shortly after it came out in 2005...from CBD. But it is not full of color photos as this 2010 says it is. It does have some full color photos, most are just 4 colors. Mine DOES have a disc in the back to insert into my computer. My question is : Has the 2010 ed. been updated? Mine is NIV version. But I see no where in these reviews or in the explanation by the publishers NOR in the blurbs shown or back cover, that the 2010 has been updated or revised from the 2005. Is it the same, other than the version being different? I know there have been additional finds/discoveries since then...and I am wondering if that was included in the 2010 ed. ( only 5 yrs apart, so maybe not.) Overall a wonderful addition to my Biblical library.
