Between the 2 testaments is a visual survey of the bible which has charts and illustrations about the time lines of the Old and New Testaments, the life of Christ, history of Israel, etc., a wonderful resource. There are color maps in the back and a small concordance. There is also a guide for Christian workers, a guide for new converts, archaeological updates, and a cyclopedic index that covers almost every subject you can think of (from names like Aaron to Zuzim-- and characteristics like ability to zeal). For example, if you look up faith, it has the definition, uses of the word and the corresponding scriptures that refer to each context. Again, it is worth the price of the bible alone.
Incidentally, this index is why this only gets 4 instead of 5 stars. This is a large print bible, but the index is in mice-print. I don't know why the publishers decided to enlarge the print of everything except this; maybe this would have made the bible too large and heavy, but it's still disappointing to have to reach for a pair of reading glasses to see it. The cover is heavy duty and sturdy enough to last many years. The print is clear and very readable (Times Roman font), but it could have been a little larger.Read more ›
The Open Bible overall is very good. But if you're interested in investing in only one study Bible, I strongly suggest Thomas Nelson's "Nelson Study Bible."
I'm happy to have this one in my library.
[addition] Almost forgot; another great plus is there's a very good dictionary in this Study Bible. The great this is they've placed it before, not after, the Bible. I really like this idea because now Genisis, Exodus, etc. have a nice buffer between themselves and the front cover. This will greatly reduce the wear to the front books of the bible because your opening Genisis 1/4 into the book! Well, I think it's great. Cheers!
