            It is written in paragraph form which makes it an easy format to read. This Study Bible is filled with great tools to help you in your reading. Whether you want to read it devotional style or chapter to chapter, this Study Bible is a great choice.
            I have enjoyed looking through the pages of this bible and find many interesting tools to help with your study of God’s word. However, this version does not come with the words of Christ in red but, I was able to get used to it. Just check before you buy some do come with the words of Christ in Red. The stars indicating messianic prophecies are not where I thought they should be (near the verse); it is in the center cross reference. The maps and articles are thorough. 
            I would recommend this bible for those who want to study God’s word. Thomas Nelson Bibles are giving back through the God’s Word in Action program. Donating a portion of profits to World Vision, “we are helping to eradicate poverty and preventable deaths among children.
