    Re: Study Bible

    I can recommend a few. It's best to go to a bookstore, grab a few of them and look over them before buying one. Choose some passages of the Bible that you are currently wanting more information on. Sit down with a few of these and see what they have to say.

    Just one caveat - don't go searching for one that agrees with something that you are wanting the Bible to say. Some people do that.


    • For King James, the Scofield Study Bible is good. I own one, my grandmother's and read it. Also for King James and New King James, Nelson puts out a good study Bible. My dad has one and I've used it before.
    • The Life Application Bible [in NIV or New Living Translation or NASB] has good notes that I have found helpful.
    • I have an NIV study bible that is good - I am currently reading this one. I do find there are good notes, but also too many footnotes and not all footnotes are found in the same place. It's a little busy. But I do like it.
    • The Holman Study Bible has been recommended to me before with lots of good comments about it.
    • And others have recommended the ESV study Bible, but have said that it is very large.




    Just park yourself in a bookstore for an hour or two and read through some of them. Don't make a hasty choice.

    Thank you Jayne. Sounds like a plan and exactly what I was thinking too.

    Gussy,

    Another good one, not to be confused with the NIV Study Bible, is the NIV Zondervan Study Bible. Very good study Bible.
