    This is certainly a big Bible. BIG It's honestly not one we carry around to church and such. It's more of a "leave it in your study place and grab it when you need it" kind of Bible. But then again, I've been tempted to take it to church once in a while. LOL

    I'm reading through it currently. I love the study notes, but the translation is not my favorite, but slightly easier to read than the NASB

    I've gotten the hardback $30 version from CBD.

    Its great, I enjoy it. I teach from a HCSB translation, but will refer to a number of different versions to help elucidate meanings in the text. :)

    This is a GREAT link for our leaders. I've already forwarded it to them.

    I have an ESV Bible and have been waitjng for a good study bible in the ESV to come out. First they came out with the Reformation Study Bible calvinistic from the label. Then I heard that the ESV Study Bible is highly calvinistic , it scared me off, or at least I am waiting until I learn more about it.:confused:

    Old Bill you can do like I do with certain publications and ignore the calvinistic bias if it is present. I'm sure there's much more to this study Bible than a few calvinistic leanings.

    I wouldn't say it's "highly" calvinistic, but it does have some undertones to it (I also haven't read Romans yet :))
    Like anything, eat the cherries and spit out the pits...
