But, he knows the bible, and he really opened my eyes up to some things. And, I need my eyes opened, because I'm really having problems with the concept of God right now. I've seen bible believing, God loving Christians go through such tragedies! Including myself. I'm almost bed ridden, due to an injury. My mother died of cancer at the tender age of 44. It was even worse for my niece. She was so cute, and was going to develop into a beautiful young lady; but we lost her due to a stupid doctor's mistake at the even more tender age of 3.
The last straw, that has really made me wonder, was a young man, who played the piano beautifully (I play it too, so I know one when I hear one, and though I'm pretty good, he was better than me). He had a sweet spirit, and was just 41 years old, and found that he had kidney cancer. He ended up dying slightly less than a year later, at the age of 42, his body riddled with cancer and in terrible pain. And, he loved the Lord.
The one thing Jimmy said, that I liked (he's said more than one thing that I like) but this one thing I like. He admits, as a Pentecostal, that he doesn't understand divine healing. He said that as a boy of about 10, he would faint. It was so bad, they were going to make him leave school, as the school didn't want him to die there. His preacher had prayed for him probably 50 to 100 times, with no answer. But, one afternoon, his preacher was eating dinner at their house, and they asked him to pray afterwards, and he said he felt a fire go from his head to his toes, and he never fainted again.
But, he is honest enough to admit, that he didn't understand that - why would God heal him that time, when that minister had already prayed for him so many times? Or why would God heal him at all, when so many go without healing? We all have questions like that, and hopefully, this study bible will help you and I find the answers, that only God knows and reveals through his Word.. Finally, all I can say is, it was the only bible I would read, once I got it, and Jimmy is really knowledgeable, despite his faults, and I really like the immediate commentary.
I recommend this bible, particularly for Pentecostal Christians, or those who believed like Pentecostals did in the 60s.
Let me state something about KJV, when the original translators wrote the KJV, they were given sections to translate. One scholar would use Holy Ghost, the other Holy Spirit. Both are used in the text; Ghost an Spirit, both carry the same meaning. Use a good dictionary an concordance such as Strong's. The use of either word does not change the meaning or format from KJV an makes no sence to argue. The original translators never explained why they did this but nothing is changed in meaning or context by using Spirit in place of Ghost.
Those who think they are reading the KJV in original text are fooled. The KJV has been updated a few times to match words an spelling. The name Jesus is spelled Iesus in the original text. I doubt anyone could read one today without the updates.
This bible an commentary are typical of Kindle books. Its on sale under $17 an is a great buy at this price. Very handy for use while speaking to others for quick answers to verses. You may not agree with everything stated, but how many commentaries do you agree 100%. Very nice job I wish this was available when I ordered the NT.
I doubt seriously you will be disappointed with this bible an commentary unless you are hung up on some false understanding of translation.
I do not always agree with the study notes, but I have never met anyone I always agree with. For context and expounding, it's great -- and I can disagree with the red italic text anytime without concern (since that part is not scripture).
I am very grateful this was made available in larger print as well. I use this copy to read from each morning. What a great way to start the day!
