    I have a new study Bible. Zondervan KJV Study Bible, Personal Size (Hardback)

    Does anyone else? Which Study Bible(s) do you use?

    What other books would you recommend?

    Lately, I've been shying away from 'Study Bibles' and using an Updated NASB - Reference Bible with no study notes. Frankly, it's a bit refreshing...

    I like the Believer's Study Bible (now out of print). It was available as the Baptist Study Bible for a while (now also out of print). I now have the notes in my Quick Verse, so the Bible spends most of the time on the shelf.

    I have the Reformation Study Bible in ESV. I'm really liking the ESV in my daily reading and studying and the notes so far seem really good. :)

    I also have this Study Bible and enjoy it very much. The study notes are especially good. :thumbs:

    MacArthur Study Bible, NKJV. I'd love to get a NASB edition of it.

    In high school I had the Quest Study Bible, but I didn't like it then and don't now.

    I now have a NASB Study Bible, which is the same as the NIV Study Bible just a different version, the NRSV Oxford Annotated Editions, which is very thorough but tends to be a bit scholarly, and a study-Bible edition of the Jerusalem Bible.

    I want the Spiritual Formation Study Bible and I have on order the Orthodox (as in Eastern) Study Bible so that I can be exposed to other perspectives.

    I still prefer, however, my good only NIV cross-reference Bible with no study notes. I have three of them and they are all quite worn in!

    I didn't like the notes on the Zondervan KJV. But then again, I'm not a big fan of the NIV and I'm pretty sure that most of the notes are the same.

    I do have a MacArthur NKJV Study Bible - and I'll pull that out if I want to read notes on something, but I mainly stay away from study bibles.

    Though the Sword one that The Scribe posted looks good.

    I don't use study bibles. When I was ordained a deacon, they wanted to present me with a study bible. Instead, I requested that they get me one of those
    Giant Print Bibles

    I have bad eyes.

    Yes, i just got a KJVer and like it, especially the wide margins. The only drawback is that some of the changes from the thee/thou/ye to you/your are a bit awkward grammatically, especially if you've memorized them in the old kjv, but its a good read and the changes from words like "changeth" to "changed" and so on are refreshing.

    Rob, What is the KJVER?? This is not the Sword Study Bible in question here. It is a standard KJV edition.

    I enjoy the MacAurthur Study Bible NKJV (weak Greek text but I can make up for that)

    Also the Reformer's Studay Bible NKJV (was called the New Geneva study Bible) with lots of whole-page notes by great men.

    The overall notes and maps in the NIV Study Bible (I got a hardback and keep it for study purposes and not preaching) are unmatched. Qaulity stuff.

    But I will preach from the old Scofield Reference Bible 1917 KJV. I am a dispensational yet reformed believer and this fits well. And since I got my first one in 1957 (and four since) that are all identical, I know about on a page where any verse is.

    I often forget an exact zip code of a verse, but know the area and can quickly scan pages for the "spot" where that verse is!
