    Go for it. I have one and love it. Dr. Bob also talks highly of it. I'm not sure but RC Sproul had some pretty cheap under the old name "The Geneva Study Bible". Its the same bible but they changed the name and were trying to get rid of the old ones.

    I have enjoyed the Baptist Study Bible in the NKJV (formerly the Criswell for the KJV).

    I enjoy my Ryrie NASB, but am a Lordship advocate and he isn't.

    The Ryrie, MacArthur, and Reformation study Bibles are all good aids. There is a lot I agree with and a lot I disagree with in each one.

    I use a Zondervan NASB Life Application Bible that I find very useful.

    Older edition is called the New Geneva Study Bible but it is excellent. NKJV so very readable. Good reformed notes. Amill, so watch it (a little more Presbyterian than I am).

    Also love the MacArthur Study Bible. Likewise NKJV and reformed, but baptist and dispensational.

    Both get [​IMG] [​IMG] .

    (But always keep my new Old Scofield handy!)

    I have a Scofield, Thompsons, and MacArthur.

    But, I love my Cambridge with standard text more than these. No notes or references.

    I have made a few stabs at grabbing the Scofield Bible off of ebay for just a few bucks, but haven't won yet. I'm not terribly motivated though since I aleady have MacArthur (And Ryrie for that matter) to cover my Dispensational needs and would probably agree much more with them (from the "revised" dispensationalism camp) then the older more classic Dispensationalism of Scofield. Also I am going to side with MacArthur for his Reformed readings. I can't escape my biases, as hard as I try. :D

    A couple of years ago I bought "THE DEFENDER'S STUDY BIBLE" with study notes by Dr. Henry Morris. (KJV)

    I've owned several Bibles over the years and this one is by far the best I've ever owned.

    This study Bible is more in defense of a seven day creation, and defends this through-out. For me this is very important. I grew up a Christian, but was taught the evolution theory and was never taught creationism. So, I had a hard time mixing Genesis with what I thought was a proven Scientific process. It always made me doubt God.

    Having a Study Bible with an emphasis on Creation has grown my Faith in God more than I can say. He is the Almightly Creator and he created a perfect world the first time. He didn't need time (billions of years) to perfect his creation.

    Love my MacArthur's. I've worn out my first (in a bible cover, no less), and am on my second.

    In Christ,

    I like my NASB Greek/Hebrew Keyword Study Bible. A friend has the Mac Athur NKJV and loves it also.

    I love the Thompson chain-reference KJV. Will probably try a Cambridge next.

    God bless,

    I bought the Reformation Bible, it was a good deal and I hear the leather is out of print so I grabbed it up.

    TWade,

    Thanks for the link on where to purchase a Cambridge bible.

    I have another question for everyone: Have you ever read the Reese Chronological Bible? What are your thoughts on it? Wondering if it is worth my time and money.

    Brian

    I like the King James Study Bible published by Nelson. I've been a Scofield guy for years but this KJ Study Bible is really good.
