Any members here using it? What's the good/bad?
I've used it briefly and liked it. I think Ryrie is dispensationalist, so if you are not, you may not like it. I am not necessarily a dispensationalist; I have not had time to study that area yet. Too many other things more important to me to understand and deal with for awhile.
Ryrie's notes are balanced by the occasional departure from the dispensational party line to explain how others might interpret a verse.
I bought the KJV edition of Ryrie 10 years ago when I needed a study Bible and wasn't all that familiar with Ryrie's doctrinal leanings or Dispensationalism in general. I don't regret the purchase. On the whole, however, I find the notes in the NIV Study Bible (as well as its NASB and KJV spinoff editions, presumably) to be more informative.
Also, Ryrie's antinomian tendencies are cause for concern although I don't recall whether they come out in his Bible study notes.
Thanks, folks. I've ordered a copy and I'm kinda looking forward to it. No, wait... I am REALLY looking forward to it. New Bible... like a kid on Christmas morning.
King James had a better idea—no doctrinal notes in the Bible. From my point of view, binding doctrinal notes under the same cover as the Bible is a sacrilege.
I have about 800 Bible commentaries and about 450 volumes of theological works in my library at home, plus many others at work. I also have about 25 study Bibles collecting dust. I don’t have Ryrie’s, however—I looked it over and decided that it was not worth the shelf space.
Well, no one would want you to take up precious shelf space with something you do not want.
Hey, do you know Puff the magic dragon? He lives by the sea too.
Get rid of some of the MVs and you will have plenty of room for a Ryrie KJV. I used to have one and liked it.
When one has a library of thousands of volumes and lives in one of the most expensive communities in the entire world, all space becomes precious.
Enjoy your new books that some call a study “Bible.”
I would rather read God's word and study it rather than rely on the short comments of another man.
No one would want you to go against your conscience and have a Bible with notes it, but some of us do not see a problem with it. You're entitled to your opinion.
High-muckety-muck, living on the hill with his extensive library. I picture you sitting there wearing your jacket and slippers, sipping fine wine and smoking a pipe.
"Puff the magic dragon, lives by the sea ..."
Well who wouldn't? Some people CAN differentiate between the two.
I find Ryrie to be a helpful resource.
For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.
As it is written, There is none righteous, no not one.
For the wages of sin is death, (in Hell) but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 10:9-10, 10:13
10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in thine heart that God has raised him from the dead, (Jesus is not dead, but alive by the power of His resurrection, showing Himself that He was and is God.) Thou shalt be saved. 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 10:13, For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
You must have the NASB edition.
Could you expound the Scriptures a bit for us, and how the verses you have posted relates to the discussion at hand, Craigbythesea?
I'll leave that up to your imagination.
Didn't think so.
I gave my father one when I was a teen, and I used it occasionally when I was in Christian high school and Bible college. He has since gone on to be with the Lord, and my Mom just ran across it the other day. I thought she was going to ask me if I wanted it, but she said she was going to use it herself for imput into her SS lessons. Wow! So, I guess for my family, it was a good purchase after all.
