Now I definitely recommend reading the introduction before diving into this bible. It can be a little confusing otherwise. Also, I know this bible is meant to “read and study” at the same time, but I kind of find the notes a little distracting when trying to read. They are helpful when trying to study though, and are easier to comprehend than some other study bibles I’ve seen. Overall, I find it good for study time, not so good for reading time. I know I’ll definitely use it while studying!
