The Biblical Theology Study Bible is an absolutely wonderful study bible! This is exactly what I have been looking for as I read through the bible, I especially love detailed verse by verse commentaries of this bible.
Lets address the elephant in the room I’ve seen a lot of negativity surround the size of this bible. In a world where you can hold a entire bible in the palm of your hand I would have to agree that yes this big it huge, yes it is heavy, however I do not agree that the size makes it difficult to use or take to church or bible studies, in fact my husband and I take this bible to church every Sunday and would recommend taking it to anyone who has this bible!
I personally love that there are over 20,000 commentary notes in this study bible! This is so important to me especially when I read a passage that is hard to understand or confusing. Along with the commentary there is wonderful concordance that is more detailed than than any other study bible I’ve ever had!
As with any study bible there are full color charts and the maps. These Charts really bring the bible alive. Some of the charts inlcude: The Lord’s Appointed Festivals, Stages in Israel’s Journey, Character Traits in Proverbs, Timeline of Prophets, New Testament Chronology, The Twelve Apostles and Parables of Jesus.
I recommend the Biblical Theology Study Bible to anyone who wants to study the bible more in-depth.
