I Love Bibles!
When I was growing up we always had a Bible or two in the house but my family didn't frequently go to church so the first Bible I remember owning was one that I purchased myself in high school. After I was baptized that year the church I attended gave me an even nicer Bible. I really cherished them both! At college I bought a paperback study Bible and used it for classes until it fell apart! Really nice Bibles tend to be pricey but I so cherish them! There is nothing quite like a Bible. Holding God's word in our hands is such a supernatural experience. Hubby & I have definately passed our awe of the Bible on to our kids. Apple and Speedy chose to use their own money to buy a Bible each just last week. They love having them in every room too!
I was so excited when I recently received The Henry Morris Study Bible. It's big and hardback and it's in the King James Version- a version I love but that I rarely buy anymore. It really is a wonderful work. It's HUGE and it has 2 built-in ribbon bookmarks. Many times when I'm reading the Bible I long for extra bookmarks! Really I feel like every page deserves it's own! Of course that would defeat the purpose of a bookmark.......
If you are looking for a Bible that will help you delve deeper into the word, that will give you the extra explanations you long for, that will answer some of your questions, this is the one. This Bible is like a playbook. It gives you references to other passages, meanings of phrases, background to people, and more. The words of Jesus are highlighted in red (shouldn't that be a requirement in every Bible) and there is a gigantic Appendix at the back. This Bible would make a beautiful gift for any Christian.
You can find more information from New Leaf Publishing. I received a copy of this Bible from New Leaf Publishing for the purpose of this review. A positive review was not required and all opinions are my own.
